WWW Wednesday, 28-April-2021

28 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. 


HangmanCurrently reading: I got through another chapter of Lateral Thinking by Edward de Bono while I was waiting for a lane. I’m sure I’ll make my way through this soon, but I’m not minding the slow pace.
I think I’ll return to  The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy by Mackenzi Lee later this week! I’m having a lot of success with time to listen to my other audio so this is coming up sooner and sooner.
The other audio I’m talking about is Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows by Balli Kaur Jaswal. I like this one a lot and I’m flying through it quickly. I’m optimistic about finishing today! Fingers crossed.
My reading buddy and I are both in love with Recursion by Blake Crouch. We met twice last week and are already more than half way through it! We haven’t read one this quickly before so I’m really excited to have found something we both enjoy so much.
I started The Hangman’s Replacement: Sprout of Disruption by Taona Dumisani Chiveneko and I’m iffy on it so far. It’s not written in a way I would write, but it’s not poorly written. I’m pushing forward with it between bouts with Recursion and even though it’s a long haul, I think I’ll make it through.

Recently finished: Nothing new this week. I’m sure I’ll have at least one thing here next week, though. Two if I’m lucky.

I posted my review for Mil veces hasta siempre (Turtles All the Way Down) by John Green on Thursday. I gave the book Four out of Five Stars. I really liked the ending, more than I thought I would early on. I liked how Green tackled mental health and I thought telling the book from Aza’s point of view was really powerful.

DollfaceReading next: It might seem premature, but I think I’m getting toward the end of Lateral Thinking so I’ll need an ebook next. It sill probably be Dollface by Renee Rosen. It will be nice to get back to some fiction with my ebook. I wonder if that will help me read a bit faster.

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 am not familiar with the books you mention but do greatly admire Laurie Halse Anderson. I had not read any of her books recently until I joined a new book group just as they were reading Chains, which I recommend: https://perfectretort.blogspot.com/2021/02/chains-by-laurie-halse-anderson-first.html It is very different from her other books but just as good (and still harrowing).

    My current walking fav is Who Let The Dogs In by Molly Ivins. About the nth time through, still current in many ways, and makes me laugh out loud. Hope other walkers/joggers know I’m listening to something and not too crazy! Once I got into Erotic Stories… I knew Sam would like it. I want Sam to conduct a similar class! Almost through A Rule Against Murder. Love any Louise Penny. About to start Saving Freedom just because I admire Harry Truman. Happy reading!!
