WWW Wednesday, 7-July-2021

7 Jul

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 actually read some from Lateral Thinking by Edward de Bono! It was mostly out of guilt from posting weeks in a row about not reading it, so I do have to thank this meme for some progress. Yay.
Still holding with The Hangman’s Replacement: Sprout of Disruption by Taona Dumisani Chiveneko. Stay tuned.
I should finish the next section of A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles this week. I want to finish before my Baby comes so Reading Buddy and I leave off at a good point! Keeping my fingers crossed.
I thought I knew where New York 2140 by Kim Stanley Robinson was going but I’m lost again. Almost done with this one and I’m just pushing to the end at this point.

Recently finished: It’s been over a month since I finished a book. Not a great feeling for a book blogger. I’m hopeful I’ll get back to it, but I’m being realistic and thinking it might be a while still. Fingers crossed.

Reading next: I’ll get to Dollface by Renee Rosen one day!

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 know what you mean about book blogging and not finishing anything. Why do we pressure ourselves??

    Seeing your reference to Dollface made me smile. I keep meaning to get to it, and another book by Rosen (Windy City Blues), but somehow, something always pushes ahead of it in the queue.

    Here’s my WWW. I’ve got a juicy real-life court case and a chick-lit fantasy.

    Hang in there! Even book bloggers go through reading slumps. You’ve got a lot of other things going on right now, too. 😉 Hope you enjoy your reading either way!

    I feel that way when I am not finishing books too, but I think you have a really good excuse. This will probably be the case after baby comes too, and that’ll be okay. 🙂 My WWW: https://greatmorrisonmigration.wordpress.com/2021/07/07/www-wednesdays-july-7-2021/

    Forward progress on Lateral Thinking is excellent! I know what you mean about not finishing a book – been there, done that – but it will come. I am just impressed that you always push through instead of stopping (which is my failing!). Have a great week!
