27 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?

Stranger

Currently reading: This week was not a good one for The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson. Being back at work has made my ebook time all but disappear for now. I’ll have to think of some new ways to get this back into my rotation.
Not much for True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey either. I read two pages one morning before the baby woke up. Small steps, right? I’m not sure they could get much smaller through, haha.
I finally started The Perfect Stranger by Megan Miranda! I’m not too far into it yet so I’ll hold my opinions for a bit but I’m excited to have a spooky read before Halloween!

RunningRecently finished: I wrapped up The Running Man by Richard Bachman (Stephen King) on Saturday. My husband is a huge help with the baby on the weekends when he gets his snuggle time in. That gave me time to garden and do some running which was a great time to wrap up this book. I’m still back and forth about how much I enjoyed this one. It didn’t blow me away, but it was still enjoyable. I’m giving it Four out of Five Stars for now, but I’ll reserve the right to change that the more I think about it. My review went up Monday so go check it out if you get a chance.

Reading next: I’m going to keep this blank for now. I seem so far away from finishing another book so I’ll take another look next week when books are hopefully moving along 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.

    Looking forward to hearing what you think of The Perfect Stranger, and am glad you’re getting time in the garden before it gets cold.

    My WWW is pretty dark this week with true crime and a thriller. Maybe I’m in the Halloween spirit!

    I enjoyed reading your review of The Running Man. Appropriate as you’re now back to being ‘The Running Mum’! I think you’re wise to concentrate on the books you currently have and not think too much about what you might read next. There’s always next week for that 😁

    I am also looking forward to trying Megan Miranda. I am really enjoying State of Terror, the collaboration of Hillary Clinton and Louise Penny, two brilliant women. As I often say, the test of an outstanding audio book to me is if I don’t want to get out of the car when I get to work! Of course, sometimes I am just not in the mood to deal with my grumpy coworkers!
