26 Jan

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!

IMG_1384-0

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 wasn’t quite as good this week about getting through The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson. I’m being patient with myself and remembering that some weeks are better than others. I’m sure I’ll get there.
I don’t have any ideas yet on how I can find more time for True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey. We’re getting close to when Baby is going to start sleeping in another room, so that might be what finally gives me the time. I do miss this story as I was really enjoying it.
I made a decent dent in Tabula Rasa by Ruth Downie. I have a better idea of where the plot is going to go and I’m looking forward to the mystery Downie has woven for this installment!

Recently finished: Nothing new this week. I’m not surprised, though. I did manage to post my review of The Ghosts of Eden Park on Monday so please check that out! I gave it Three out of Five Stars but I feel like that rating doesn’t convey how much I enjoyed it.

91tzXN8Fp0LReading next: I think I’ll finish my ebook soon once I get back to a groove which will mean I’m picking up A House at the Bottom of a Lake by Josh Malerman next. It will be fun to have a thriller!

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.

    Great to hear you’re still managing to squeeze in some reading time. I enjoyed your review of The Ghosts of Eden Park. You explained well what worked and didn’t work for you. My husband has just read a book that suffered from the same thing – the author including too much detail of a trial with pages and pages of first person testimony.

    This is the first I’ve heard of House at the Bottom of the Lake, right when I’m thinking a thriller would be nice. Thanks.

    This week I’ve got a funny/sad novel about marriage and a crime mystery where the motive is unique and crazy … but believable.

    I enjoyed your Ghosts of Eden Park review. Not every book is a 4 or 5 but that doesn’t mean we didn’t enjoy it. My mother says her reading pattern did not improve until I started nursery school – she went straight to the library, looking for something thick and appealing, and found author Dorothy Dunnett – still her favorite 50 years later!
