13 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.


Ghost

Currently reading: I haven’t managed much in The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson. I’m back to work now so it’s more my mom or mother in law who has Baby while they sleep, which was my prime reading time. I’m sure I’ll find a way to incorporate it into my life again soon.
Still not much in True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey. I’ve been getting back into working out so once Baby is asleep, I’m very quickly following with no real reading time at night. If we can figure out a better routine, I’d love to start picking up physical books again.
The one book I am making good progress with is The Running Man by Richard Bachman (Stephen King). I’ve been able to do long walks and continue running which gives me chunks of time for this book most days. I’m enjoying it a lot and I’m hoping my husband will listen to it after me so we can talk about it.

Recently finished: Nothing this week but I posted my review for The Chocolate War by Robert Cormeir on Monday. On reflection, I decided to raise my rating to Four out of Five Stars. I think I was still bitter about the end when I did the initial rating and this seems more fair.

Stranger

Reading next: I’m excited to start The Perfect Stranger by Megan Miranda soon. I think I’ll have started it by next week. October is a great time for thrillers.

    I have heard of The Chocolate War but not read it, although I can understand bestowing a harsher immediate rating because of the way a book ends!

    I find myself altering the ratings I give books after giving it a bit of time too. I like that I’m often a little on the slow side getting reviews up, at least because it gives a bit of a grace period before a review is fully finalized, in case I need to temper my feelings one way or another. Glad to hear you enjoyed it, in any case, despite your feelings on the ending.

    Pardon my late contribution this week. Happy reading!
