WWW Wednesday, 24-March-2021

24 Mar

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: Not much with Lateral Thinking by Edward de Bono this week. Swimming’s been put on hold because of a pregnancy complication that will hopefully resolve soon and will let me get back in the water. Fingers crossed!
Paused with Mil veces hasta siempre (Turtles All the Way Down) by John Green. Hang on.
Regrettably also on hold with The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy by Mackenzi Lee. I wanted to get back to this sooner but my book club audiobook is taking a lot longer than anticipated. Grumble grumble.
The aforementioned book club pick is The Overstory by Richard Powers. This book is epically long and I feel like my baby might be born before I finish this book. (Seeing as I’m only at 20 weeks, this is still a possibility.)
I’m loving and rushing throubh The Vanishing Half by Britt Bennett with my reading buddy. We met over the weekend to discuss the first half and I’m already closing in on our next chunk. I had a lot of rest time this weekend to read and it helped me get ahead a bit.
I started Expecting Better by Emily Oster and it’s going faster than I thought which is a welcome surprise. Oster is very funny and clearly well researched which is making for a fun read. I’m not as nervous about trying a sip of my husband’s beers on our upcoming babymoon now!

Recently finished: With all the books I’m in the middle of, it should be no surprise I haven’t finished anything. I’d be ecstatic to finish anything this next week but I’m not going to hold my breath.

Reading next: I’ll try to finish something before I make any plans for the future. That all seems too far away at this point.

Leave a comment with your link and 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.

    I hope you at least enjoy The Overstory, although I don’t take it as a good sign that it feels overly long. Good books should only ever feel luxuriously long, when you want to immerse yourself completely in them. Anything that feels too long is a book you just want to get to the end of in my experience.

      I’m feeling that way a bit. It is finally coming together in one cohesive story but I’m a little weary about where it’s heading. I don’t think this one is for me. Happy reading!

    That third W is always the hardest for me. I’m not always sure what I’ll be in the mood for next, or what from my library waitlist will suddenly be available.
    This week I’ve got a workplace romance and a vintage mystery.

    I somehow missed that you were pregnant? Congratulations! Sending you and the baby positive thoughts, and I hope you’re able to get back to swimming soon! I also ended up putting The Lady’s Guide on hold … mostly because my library card expired, and I had to get that sorted out, and in the meantime, my loan lapsed, so now I need to wait for it again. xD Oops. Here’s to hoping we’re both able to get back to it soon!
