WWW Wednesday, 14-July-2021

14 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.


2140

Currently reading: Good news! I actually made progress with Lateral Thinking by Edward de Bono and I’m finally feeling good about finishing it soon. I’ve got more doctors appointments than I’d care for (thanks, Baby) right about now and the waiting rooms are great reading time.
I was able to do something I love on Sunday morning; read in bed! I got through the scene in The Hangman’s Replacement: Sprout of Disruption by Taona Dumisani Chiveneko that had me stalled and I’m finally on to a part I’m more interested in so I’m feeling good about this.
My reading buddy and I met on Sunday and we’re moving forward to Part 4 of A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles. We’re both enjoying it a lot and excited to keep this one moving forward! Fingers crossed we finish before Baby makes their appearance.
All the doctors appointments are giving me car time to listen to New York 2140 by Kim Stanley Robinson. I think I’m in striking distance and may actually finish this sometime soon.

Recently finished: Y’all, I’m so close to finishing one. I know it’s coming, I just keep holding my breath one more week.

Reading next: I’ve still got my eye on Dollface by Renee Rosen. I know it’s coming soon.

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.

    How are you enjoying New York 2140? Everything I read and watch has an outsized impact on my emotions these days, and that looks like it might hit me hard.

    This week I have contemporary chick-lit by Marian Keyes, who does chick-lit as well as anybody, and the story of one of the 1930s biggest trials.

      I’m not a huge fan, to be honest. It’s a bit too long for how slow the plot has been going. I’m excited to be wrapping it up soon. Happy reading!
