WWW Wednesday, 20-October-2021

20 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.


Currently reading: I haven’t anything in The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson. I’ve made an effort to take my eyes off my phone when I’m with the baby which has resulted in less ebook time, but more adorable moments. For now, adorable moments win out.
I think I read one chapter of True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey, nothing to brag about. I’m sure I’ll get through this one because it’s been fun, I’m just going slowly.
Audiobooks are still where the money is with my reading. I’ve been making my way through The Running Man by Richard Bachman (Stephen King) steadily. I might need more than a week to finish it, but I should finish it this month.

Recently finished: Nothing here. I’m learning to accept slow reading speeds.


Reading next: Maybe I’ll start The Perfect Stranger by Megan Miranda before next week? Maybe? I can dream, haha.

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.

    You definitely need to make the most of the special moments with your baby. The books will always be there but babies grow and change so quickly.

    The very best ting about books is that they wait, without complaint, for you to come back. Time with baby won’t so good for you! I am still excited to hear your thoughts on The Girl with Ghost Eyes whenever you get the chance to finish the book.

    I am a bit late this week joining – I’ve recently started moonlighting a second job (3x nights a week) onto of my main job and I’m still working out the kinks when it comes to days off (blessedly Saturdays are still off right now!) and time to blog/read etc. I decided to breakdown what I’m reading this week and over the weekend for #SpooktasticReads which is an Autumnal event I happily co-host with my partners for @WyrdAndWonder – Imyril and Lisa. The main event is every May. This list is a humbled group of stories I’ve been bewitched to read and some of which have languished a bit from being finished due to different reasons. This is my first introduction post for the event and a bit of a marker of what I’m reading right now.

    Hope everyone else is having a good week themselves with the stories their trying to read too.
