WWW Wednesday, 7-April-2021

7 Apr

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. 


mil vecesCurrently reading: Not much on Lateral Thinking by Edward de Bono this week. I was away on my Babymoon (best. idea. ever) with my husband and limiting screen time in favor of some print reading. I’m sure I’ll be back to it soon.
I’ve returned to Mil veces hasta siempre (Turtles All the Way Down) by John Green! With most of my Spanish reads, this will be a bit slow but YA seems to help a lot so I’m optimistic about making it through in a reasonable time.
Still waiting with The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy by Mackenzi Lee. Hopefully soon.
I can’t wait to finish The Overstory by Richard Powers. I’m getting down to the end of it and it will feel so good when I’m done, but I’m just waiting for the end now.

Better

Recently finished: I was able to wrap up Expecting Better by Emily Oster late last week! Felt great to finish another book so quickly and I’m really glad I read this one. My review posted yesterday if you want to check it out! It seems a lot of my friends with young kids or who are also pregnant have read this one. I might have even stumbled upon a pregnancy I didn’t know about because of a Goodreads review! I feel like a detective.

Reading next: I’m still debating this one. My reading buddy and I might pick up again soon since we’ve got a lot of momentum. I might need to pick up a book club read. Or I might need an English book to grab when my brain is too fried for Spanish. So I’ll leave this blank one more week to let my life settle and see where I need to go.

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.

    A baby moon is such a good idea, although any kind of break would be such a dream right now. Your Goodreads detective skills made me smile 😊

      It was the first time we’d ate in a restaurant and it was weird! There were only two times we couldn’t get outdoor seating which was our preference. It was so nice to not cook for a few days! Happy reading.

    I’m so glad you got your babymoon in! What a beautiful memory to add to your pregnancy recollections.

    I have a new (to me) cozy mystery and another book about a villain who couldn’t be less cozy.
