24 Aug

Welcome to WWW Wednesday! This meme was formerly hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm 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?

BeastsCurrently reading: I got through very few pages of In the Garden of Beasts by Erik Larson. I put my ereader on the kitchen table to encourage me to read if I’m eating alone but until school starts back up again, it seems doubtful that will be happening.
I’m trying to get through In One Person by John Irving this week. My book club meets to discuss it on Monday and I’m leading the discussion. I’m planning to leave a lot of time for reading before then and I should be able to power through.
I’m absolutely in love with World Without End by Ken Follett. I was afraid this book would be less enjoyable than the first in the series, but I think it’s even better. I love the characters and the way Follett builds the plot. I can’t wait to listen to more and more of this one.

Recently finished: Sad news! No books finished this week. I knew this would start to happen with a long audiobook so I’m not surprised. I hope to have one for your next week, though!

Just one book reviewed, The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman. I thought the advice in this book was amazing and a lot of it made sense to me. Great reading and I gave it Four out of Five Stars.

BoySnowReading Next: Boy, Snow, Bird by Helen Oyeyemi is still sitting on my bedside table. I’m really excited to start it and I hope I can dive in soon. I just have to finish Irving first. The plan is to finish it before Monday so I hope to say I’m reading this one next week.
