WWW Wednesday, 30-December-2015

30 Dec

Welcome to WWW Wednesday! This meme was formerly hosted by MizB at Should be Reading and revived here on Taking on a World of Words. Just answer the three questions below and leave a link to your post in the comments for others to look at. No blog? No problem! Just leave a comment with your responses. Please, take some time to visit the other participants and see what others are reading. So, let’s get to it!


The Three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

PleaseCurrently reading:  I got to check out I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai and I had time to read it during lunch on Thursday, which was really nice. I got to read a bit before mass started on Christmas Eve, but that’s about it for the week. Not a great reading week in general.
I got through very little of A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab. I was with my family and friends almost non-stop this past week so it wasn’t a good time for audiobooks.
We all stayed up late talking so there wasn’t much time before bed for One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. I’m guessing y’all are feeling like the excuses are in abundance this week. They are.
Minimal progress (again) with Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania by Erik Larson. I’m absolutely loving the story now but I have limited drive time. I hope this picked up in the new year.
My husband and I started a new audiobook for our long Christmas drive and New Years drive, Yes Please by Amy Poehler. I got the book through the Ford Audiobook Club before it ended. So far, it’s fun and enjoyable, though I liked Tina Fey’s better (just a bit).

Recently finished: Nothing finished. Poo. That’s what I get for all the traveling and family fun times.

And just one book review, Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee. I gave the book 4 out of 5 stars.

PrincipeReading Next: I put Harry Potter y el misterio del príncipe (Half-Blood Prince) by J.K. Rowling next to my bed. It’s pretty certain to be next. However, I’m hosting the 2016 When Are You Reading? Challenge so I might have to pick up some historical fiction books to fit the time periods. If you’re interested in joining, please let me know! I posted about it Monday and you can read the details on this page.

Leave a comment with your link and a comment (if you’re so inclined). Take a look at the other participant links in the comments and look at what others are reading.

Have any opinions on these choices?

Until next time, write on.

You can follow me on GoodreadsFacebookTwitterPinterest, and Instagram. I’m available via email at SamAStevensWriter@gmail.com. And as always, feel free to leave a comment!

    I enjoyed Yes, Please and I’ve been wondering about reading Bossy Pants. If you decide it’s a bit better, then that’ll be another one for the TBR!

      Bossypants is great, especially the audiobook which Fey narrates. Happy Wednesday!

      The point I’m at is picking up well. I did think the start was a bit slow, though. If I enjoy this one I’m excited to see where the series goes. Happy Wednesday!

    Sounds like you’re as busy as always. And don’t worry about excuses – they’re understandable when you get holidays all rammed together like this. I’ve had to be driving for a trip, so I didn’t have as much reading time as I expected to have, either.

      It’s tough to finish reading goals and challenges at the end of the year! I always try to finish in early December at the latest. Happy Wednesday!

    I started the audiobook of Yes Please a while back but then forgot to keep going with it! You’ve reminded me to pick that back up again!


    • Sam December 30, 2015 at 9:46 AM #

      I’m glad nice enjoyed it a lot so far. Happy Wednesday!

      I’m sorry this took so long to respond, it got caught in my filters. I finished ‘Yes Please’ this morning and I did enjoy it a lot. I liked that it made me laugh while driving (but not too hard, don’t worry). Happy reading!

    Yes Please was… ehhh, I just loved Tiny fey’s book so much more!


    • Sam December 30, 2015 at 12:33 PM #

      I’m feeling the same way. The audiobook is still better than most for a car trip. Happy Wednesday!


  8. Carol J Forrester December 30, 2015 at 11:16 AM #

    Christmas is always a tricky time to get reading done. There are always so many commitments with family and friends.


    • Sam December 30, 2015 at 12:37 PM #

      So true! I hope to have some progress next week. Happy Wednesday!

    I’m interested in reading Yes, Please, too. It sounds like a fun one. Here’s my WWW Wednesday: https://anovelglimpse.wordpress.com/2015/12/30/www-wednesday-december-30-2015/.

      Sorry that this took me so long to reply, it got caught up in my filters! I finished ‘Yes Please’ this morning and it was fun. It made two drives to Ohio and back go by quickly. Happy reading!

    How are you liking I Am Malala so far? I haven’t heard too much from people who have read it yet.

    This week’s list: http://alanacking.blogspot.com/2015/12/www-wednesday-december-30.html


    • Sam December 30, 2015 at 12:42 PM #

      I like it so far. It’s a good mix or politics and personal story. I’m about to read a bit more actually, haha. Happy Wednesday!


  12. rainandcheese December 30, 2015 at 12:18 PM #

    Seems like a slow pace this week. There’s so much to do in the holidays~ Oh the irony.


    • Sam December 30, 2015 at 12:45 PM #

      Haha, very true! I look forward to going back to work. Happy Wednesday!


  13. Lindsay | Bookboodle December 30, 2015 at 1:11 PM #

    I wouldn’t beat yourself up too much about not reading so much; with the holidays I guess we’re all spending much more time with our families than usual. Happy New Year!

    I have been thinking about reading Yes, Please, so it’s good to hear you are enjoying it. And finding out you are going to host the 2016 When Are You Reading? challenge is even better news! I will definitely be joining. 🙂

    I love Amy Poehler and Yes Please has been on my tbr for a while, I definitely want to get around to it soon. I Am Malala is also on my tbr, it should be an interesting read. This is my first time taking part in WWW Wednesday’s and I love the idea – thanks for hosting! Here’s my entry: https://kellysramblings.wordpress.com/2015/12/30/www-wednesday-30th-december-2015/

      Thanks for joining! I’m a big fan of Poehler as well so hearing about her journey to where she is now is fascinating. Happy Wednesday!

    • Sam December 30, 2015 at 7:45 PM #

      It made for a fun trip to Ohio. I’ll be headed back there again tomorrow and I hope to finish it. Maybe in time for the new year, but it will likely be my first read of 2016! Happy Wednesday.

    I didnt even know Amy Poehler had a book out. Is it good? She’s hilarious on screen, so it must be. Here’s my list for WWW: http://poemsbyayoungartist.blogspot.com/2015/12/www-wednesdays-4-marissameyer-julia.html


    • Sam December 30, 2015 at 7:50 PM #

      It’s pretty good. I’d recommend Tina Fey’s book first, but I am enjoying Poehler’s as well. Happy Wednesday!
