12 May

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. 

UndergroundCurrently reading: I think I read a chapter from Lateral Thinking by Edward de Bono this week but that’s about it. I’m not happy about moving so slowly, but I’ll come to terms with it eventually. I’ll finish it, but maybe I want to shy away from nonfiction for this format in the future.
I made some decent progress in The Hangman’s Replacement: Sprout of Disruption by Taona Dumisani Chiveneko. I’m a little iffy on this one right now, it seems to be rambling a bit and I’m unsure how it might all come back together.
I started listening to The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead on Sunday but I’m not far into it yet. It’s a long book so I expect this will be here for a while, though I hope I can power through.

PetticoatsRecently finished: I finished up The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy by Mackenzi Lee! After taking a break from it for so long, it was great to finish this one. I posted my review yesterday so you can check that out. I gave the book Four out of Five Stars.
I also finished Recursion by Blake Crouch and I’m meeting with my reading buddy tonight to talk about it. I found the end a bit too convenient, but this is a book I still thoroughly enjoyed and I would recommend to people who liked Crouch’s first book. I gave it Four out of Five Stars.

I also posted my review for Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows by Balli Kaur Jaswal on Thursday last week. My book club met on Monday to discuss it so look for a summary of that conversation early next week.

DollfaceReading next: I still think Dollface by Renee Rosen will be my next ebook. I just need to read ebooks faster so I need a new one!

    I do like the title of The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy, but not sure any book could live up to such a bold title.

      The first book in the series, A Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue, did. This one was close to be sure. Happy reading!

    I’m glad you enjoyed Recursion, even if it couldn’t quite live up to the previous book. What could? I’ll be interested in your thoughts on The Underground Railroad as I’ve had my eye on that for a while. I read an interview with the author recently as it’s being adapted for film plus he has a new book coming later this year.

    Glad you enjoyed Recursion! I can’t remember the ending – it’s been a few years, but I’m a Crouch fan. https://teripolen.com/2021/05/12/www-wednesday-what-am-i-reading-amreading-55/


    • Sam May 13, 2021 at 8:58 AM #

      The ending was actually my least favorite part. I felt it resolved too fast. Happy reading!

    Eager to hear how you like Dollface. I was a fan of White Collar Girl, her earlier book, and I’m currently reading a mystery set in the 1920s.

    This week I’ve two books with female protagonists: a period mystery and a memoir.


    • Sam May 13, 2021 at 9:49 PM #

      I hope I can start it soon. I just need to find the motivation to finish Lateral Thinking. Happy reading!

    I’m interested to see how Hangman’s Replacement plays out for you. I’m always looking for reads by authors of different countries for my book club, and we have definitely not read anything by a Zimbabwean author before. Also, I remember taking a long time with Underground Railroad, but I believe it is worth it. Have a great week!

      I’m doing Underground Railroad as a ln audiobook and that moves quickly for me. Happy reading!

    It’s hard to fit in time to read with the end of the school year approaching–but I’m trying to get a book a week…

    Excellent progress this week. Look forward to your coming reviews. It’s a pity you weren’t wholly satisfied with the end of Recursion, but glad you mostly enjoyed it. Here’s my post this week: https://libgirlbooks.com/2021/05/12/www-wednesday-may-12-2021-wwwwednesday-bookishmemes/

      The ending was just to quick, the complex story felt deserving of something more. Happy reading!
