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 read a few pages from Lateral Thinking by Edward de Bono but not enough to brag about it. I’ll be slow going through this and I’m really okay with that. I know I’ll finish eventually. With all my upcoming doctors’ appointments, maybe that will give me some time.
I made some progress with The Hangman’s Replacement: Sprout of Disruption by Taona Dumisani Chiveneko but I’ve stopped for my buddy read. I’ll get back to it between segments so I’ll keep moving forward but it may be a while.
I was able to start A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles and I’m liking it so far! Ready buddy and I are meeting on Friday to talk about the first section and I should be able to finish in time without too much trouble. This one is moving at a good pace.
I had a few false starts with audiobooks this week. Right now, I’m trying my hand at New York 2140 by Kim Stanley Robinson. I’m not won over by the writing just yet but the idea is original and I can see how it could be a fun read. I’ll give it another day or two before I decide if I’m going to stick around for the 22 hours it will demand.

Recently finished: I wrapped up The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead on Thursday and enjoyed the ending. I’m excited to see the screen adaptation soon and I wonder how they portrayed the railroad! I hope to have a review up next week. I gave the book Four out of Five Stars.

Reading next: If I ever finish my ebook, I’ll pick up Dollface by Renee Rosen next. I’m looking forward to some enjoyable fiction so I’m hoping this comes soon!
