6 Oct

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.


Running

Currently reading: I got through another chunk of The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson. I’ve found Baby sleeps well when we to outside so I’ve taken to sitting on the porch and reading with her strapped to my chest. We are all fans so far.
I’ve barley read any of True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey since it’s a physical book and it’s hard to hold while holding a baby. I’m sure I’ll get through it eventually, but it will be a bit of a process.
I had a fair amount of Google Play Store credit and I decided to use it to buy an audiobook. I went with The Running Man by Richard Bachman (Stephen King) since my library didn’t own a copy. I’ve just started but looking forward to this one!

81vZZPOsZ8LRecently finished: I flew through The Chocolate War by Robert Cormeir this past week. We took a lot of walks where I got to listen and Baby is on a little bit of a schedule now which allows me to cook so I have that time for books, too. I found this one a bit stereotypical and a bit over simplistic but still enjoyable. I’ll try to have a review out next week. I’ll give the book Three out of Five Stars.

Stranger

Reading next: I went in a slightly different direction than planned for my audiobook but I’ll still keep The Perfect Stranger by Megan Miranda on deck to listen to next. Audiobooks seem to be the only format I have time for now so I anticipate this one coming up next despite having just started a new audio.

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.

    It’s nice when you find a bit of a routine. It took my girl six months when she was small to have any semblence of a routine. She did always sleep best strapped to me though!

    When I read The Chocolate War, it was a revelation because YA was a new genre (this was back in the very early 80s). But for as amazing as I thought it was then, I guess it doesn’t quite stand the test of time.
