27 Jan

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?

Currently reading: I guess it’s a good thing that I got a lane quickly so I didn’t read a lot of Lateral Thinking by Edward de Bono on the pool deck this week. Still hovering in chapter 4.
I finally feel I’m making some progress with Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. I’m taking some time in the morning to listen and do some light strength-building which is helping me move through this faster.
My reading buddy and I are flying through Octavia Butler’s Kindred by Damian Duffy and John Jennings. I’d be done by now if we weren’t stopping to discuss as often as we are. I expect this one to be wrapped up next week.
I’m waiting on my library hold and realized that it’s time to start my Spanish read of the year. This is my final owned book so I’ll have to do some shopping soon for a stockpile for the next few years. I decided on Mil veces hasta siempre (Turtles All the Way Down) by John Green. My reading level in Spanish is pretty well suited for YA so I’m optimistic this will be a good read for me.

Recently finished: I finished The Bear by Andrew Krivak late last week. It became a bit of a chore after the book took a turn I wasn’t a big fan of, but I’m glad I finished it. I think it will be an interesting book discussion and I’m curious to see what others thought of the ending and if I’m alone in my skepticism. I posted my review earlier in the week so please check that out to see all my thoughts. I gave the book Three out of Five Stars.

Reading next: I’m still waiting for my hold of Writing Young Adult Fiction for Dummies by Deborah Halverson. I’ve been talking to my husband about writing more often, hoping it will help me commit to carving out time for it and that he’ll help me push myself to do it, too. We can only hope.
