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?

Currently reading: I made the slightest progress with The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson this week. We’re adjusting to some new parts of Baby’s schedule and it’s given us some sleepless nights and long days but we’re getting there!
We’re trying Baby sleeping in the nursery so I’m optimistic I might get back to True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey soon. Even a few pages before bed would be amazing.
The snow this week helped me make progress in Tabula Rasa by Ruth Downie. Listening to an audiobook makes shoveling the sidewalk a little less miserable! (Though I still don’t love it.)

Recently finished: Waiting patiently.

91tzXN8Fp0LReading next: I’ve still got A House at the Bottom of a Lake by Josh Malerman next up for an ebook.
My plan is to listen to Where the Light Enters by Sara Donati next but I’ll honestly say I’m intimidated by how long it is! I’m so slow on audio right now that this is a major commitment!

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.

    Good luck to Mommy, Daddy and Baby. The move to the nursery is a big step.

    This week, I’m serving up a domestic thrillers and a biography of the world’s most famous wife. (Made me kinda glad I’m single.)

    Ugh, snow shoveling is the worst. I hurt my back so bad the last time it snowed here. Having something good to listen to does help but it’s still no fun at all.

    Good luck with baby! Hope this gives you some extra reading time!

        Definitely. I have snow come up on my memories on Facebook for this week. It’s not even forecast at the moment as far as I’m aware. It is bright and sunny (but cold). Still never mind. It’s half term here so we want good weather to get out and about in (as Covid safe as possible of course).
