25 Aug

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.


Kelly

Currently reading: I found out my library is discontinuing one of their eaudio platforms and it’s the one I’m using to listen to The King of Crows (Diviners #4) by Libba Bray. Needless to say, I’m pushing had to finish this one! I have about eleven hours left so it will be a small challenge, but I need a reading challenge these days and I’m ready for it!
I’m still grabbing small moments to read The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson. I feel like it’s moving pretty quickly so I think I’ll finish it up in better time than some of my past ebooks.
I’ve only just started True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey so I can’t say much about it yet. I’m excited to have a new physical book, though!

Hangman

Recently finished: I finally finished The Hangman’s Replacement: Sprout of Disruption by Taona Dumisani Chiveneko! This one was a real struggle for me. I liked the beginning of it, but there were scenes that were just so difficult to get through that I’d get stuck for a week or more, reading a page at a time before I grew frustrated and put the book down. It ended with a section like that, which was even more infuriating because I slowed to a crawl. I’ll post a review as soon as I find the time for it but know this got One out of Five Stars from me.

Reading next: No plans just yet. I’ll see how much reading I’m able to do with Baby around. They are sleeping well, but I’m not so a lot of my free time has been dedicated to napping and cleaning the house. I’ve got another month before I go back to work to try and even things out a bit.

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.

    Happy Wednesday, Sam! I hope it’s going well for everyone!

    It’s sucks that you’re being rushed to finish the Diviners series. Like you, due dates are usually my motivation for finishing my library books. I haven’t read any of the books you mentioned, but I can’t wait to read Bray’s books in October.

    Here’s my WWW Wednesday post:

    I hope you get to finish your audiobook before your library stop using that platform! Mine got rid of rbdigital a while back and they just use Libby now which is actually much better. hope you get some sleep as well. I remember being told to sleep when my baby did, but of course i didn’t and but wish I had!

      I try to sleep when the baby does, but the urge to clean bottles or tidy the nursery gets me sometimes! It’s also a good time for walks! My library is getting rid of CloudLibrary for Libby. I’ve used Libby before and wasn’t a huge fan so I’m skeptical. Happy reading!
