WWW Wednesday, 15-November-2017

15 Nov

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!

IMG_1384-0

The Three Ws are:

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

Note: For users of Blogspot blogs, I’m unable to comment on your posts as a WordPress blogger unless you’ve enabled Name/URL comments. This is a known WordPress/Blogspot issue. Please consider enabling this to participate more fully in the community.


Currently reading: I’m 3/4 of the way done with The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison. With how short the book is, I’ll probably finish it up in the next week provided I get a few days to read during lunch. Three more days should do it.
I reached halfway in The Book of Fate by Brad Meltzer. His books are really long so I’m not surprised this one is taking me so long. I’ve been easing off a bit with running, too, which is making this even slower. I’ll keep pushing on because it’s a really fun storyline.
I’ve been enjoying My Jesus Year by Benyamin Cohen a lot. I really enjoy these religious memoirs and I feel pretty certain I’ll finish this one up this week.

Recently finished: Nothing again! I’m going to blame starting them at the same time. And length. And me being a bit lazy lately.

Reading Next: It will still be Our Souls at Night by Kent Haruf. This is a slim book and I’m hoping it will be a fast read so I can knock it out before my next book club meeting! Fingers crossed.


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 have been going through holiday reads for HoHoHoRAT this past week. I am impressed, but I also HAVE to finish my current book tonight. I have never truly joined in a readathon before, so I went all out and did all the challenges. I’m also excited that almost every one of my books are NetGalley books, so I’ll be whittling down my list!

    I tried reading Toni Morrison once and I just could not. I had to quit and walk away and give the book away, so I’m glad you are enjoying her book. So close to being done, too!

    I think less walking/running is one of the reasons I’ve read barely any audio books this year. If I only listen to it in tiny bites, I start losing interest. I’m starting to train for a trek next year, though, so I’ll hopefully get through a few more in the coming weeks.

    I’m sympathetic because I remember when I was working full-time/studying it was so hard to find time for reading – not to mention fitting in all the domestic stuff, oh and some time for socializing as well. Now I’m retired I have the luxury of reading just about all day if I want to(ahem, should be doing some chores as well of course). On the other hand, sounds like you may have several finished books to talk about next week.

      I read a lot of different genres. The Bluest Eye is literary fiction, The Book of Fate is a thriller, My Jesus Year is a memoir, and Our Souls at Night is, well, I’m not sure. I think it’s literary fiction. I try not to find out much about a book before I start it. Happy reading!
