9 Jun

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: I made it through another chapter of Lateral Thinking by Edward de Bono. Steady progress forward, still a ways from finishing, through.
I’m paused on The Hangman’s Replacement: Sprout of Disruption by Taona Dumisani Chiveneko while I push forward with my buddy read. I’ll get back to it, I know, but it may take some time.
My ready buddy and I met to talk about the first part of A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles and we’ve moved on to Part II. So far, we’re not sure what we’re in for but we’re both enjoying the writing. We’ll see.
I decided to stick with New York 2140 by Kim Stanley Robinson on audio. There’s a lot going on but the characters seem to be overlapping so I’m curious how they’ll end up coming together. I’m hoping this one move quickly!

Recently finished: Nothing more finished this week. Oh well. Next week doesn’t look good either. I might have to kiss some of the reading goals for 2021 goodbye. I did manage to post my review of The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead on Monday, so please check that out!

Reading next: If I ever finish my ebook, I’ll pick up Dollface by Renee Rosen next. I’m looking forward to some 1920s fun.

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’m interested in your experience with New York 2140. Is it harder to keep track of overlapping stories on audio?

    Here’s my WWW. I’ve got a classic mystery and a more romantic one, hot off the presses.


    • Sam June 9, 2021 at 12:12 PM #

      It hasn’t been too hard because they’re overlapping well and the narration switches between them frequently so that I’m not forgetting any characters. Happy reading!

    I shouldn’t worry too much about your progress with your challenge goals just yet. There’s still plenty of the year left 😁 Glad you and your reading buddy are still enjoying A Gentleman in Moscow.

      Having Baby on the way isn’t making me feel great about catching up, though! I’ll try to be positive. Happy reading!

      Steady progress is always the key. I hope you keep enjoying all the books you have on your plate. I think Dollface with its twenties fun does sound like great read.

    A Gentleman in Moscow was a DNF for me (the wrong book at the wrong time). I had another great reading week!



    • Sam June 9, 2021 at 12:21 PM #

      Sorry to hear that! I think I’m enjoying it more than my buddy. It seems like a bit of a slow start. Happy reading!

    Sounds like a fun collection of books. Good luck getting through all of them.

    I enjoyed your Underground Railroad review. It has been a while since I read that, so it was a good refresher before I watch the series on Amazon. I enjoyed Gentleman in Moscow more than I thought I would, and I think there are interesting things to discuss. Have a great week of reading!

      I hope you like the Amazon series! I’m excited to watch it soon since it’s fresh in my mind. Happy reading!

    I hope you will enjoy the rest of A Gentleman In Moscow! It wasn’t what I expected either when I started reading it, but it ended up being a favorite. Have a great week and happy reading! Here’s my WWW.
