16 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!


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 don’t think I even opened Lateral Thinking by Edward de Bono this week. I know I’m getting close, but this one will linger on.
I ready a little bit of The Hangman’s Replacement: Sprout of Disruption by Taona Dumisani Chiveneko since I’m between ready buddy sections. I’m over half way now and I’m hoping the story starts to tie together a bit more!
We’re through Part II of A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles. We both had busy weekends so we’ll see when we’re able to get together and press forward. I think this slow burn is starting to flame a little bit, we’ll see if she feels the same way.
I had a good chunk of car time this weekend to enjoy New York 2140 by Kim Stanley Robinson. I’m still struggling with the main conflict in this book. I’m hoping it sorts itself out soon because I’m starting to lose interest a bit even though the characters are really fun.

Recently finished: Nothing again. I promise I’m not neglecting the blog, I just have very little to say! Hopefully I’ll have some progress soon and be able to post more here for you all to enjoy.

Reading next: I’m still waiting to get to Dollface by Renee Rosen. I think some fun fiction is needed to boost my reading life.

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.

    Eager to hear how you like Dollface. I like the author and the 1920s can be such a great setting.

    I’ve got true crime (one of the 20th century’s “trials of the century”) and a modern-day fictional mystery.

      True crime gives me the creeps, knowing it all happened! Happy reading!

    I know what you mean about travel reading – I got a good bit done while flying last week. Such a treat! https://teripolen.com/2021/06/16/www-wednesday-what-am-i-reading-amreading-57/

    I’ve got a book that’s been lingering since just after Easter – I’m up to the epilogue and just can’t seem to bring myself to finish it!

    Hope New York 2140 does work itself out for you. Sounds like an interesting read/listen. My WWW – https://tessatalksbooks.blog/2021/06/16/www-wednesday-june-16-2021/

      The setting is really interesting but the plot is a little lacking. We’ll see how it develops. Happy reading!

    I hope you’ll get to Dollface soon. And I hope you’ll end up loving it. I’m really curious about it!

      I hope I can, too! I feel so close to finishing the DeBono. Happy reading!

    Given how busy you seem to be I’m amazed you manage to fit in any reading! However, I’m glad to know you’re enjoying your books when you do find an opportunity to dip into them.

      Thank you! I’m trying to dip in as much as possible but it’s been a challenge at times. Happy reading!

    I feel you with not making as much progress as you think you should. xD I’ve definitely hit that spot lately. Even a little progress is still progress, though!

    Here’s my WWW post.

      True! Just have to focus on the progress we do make. Happy reading!

    I definitely agree that fun or light reading is a good idea to reboost reading mojo if things get heavy. Dollface sounds interesting as 1920’s is such a fun period. My WWW is here https://devoil.wordpress.com/


    • Sam June 16, 2021 at 8:38 PM #

      I really hope I can start soon, it will be a fun one (I really hope). Happy reading!
