29 Jun

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?

51I9OngSemL._SX328_BO1,204,203,200_Currently reading: I’m making decent progress with Into White by Randi Pink but not flying through it like I thought I might. The story is fine, maybe a little heavy handed at times. There’s a lot that’s unique about this story, but there’s also a lot that seems cliche and predictable. We’ll see how it wraps up.
I finally started Rebeldes (The Outsiders) by S.E. Hinton! I know it will be slow because it’s a lot of concentration for me to read in another language. It does help that this is written for a YA audience so the reading level is appropriate for me. We’ll see how it goes.
I needed a new ebook and settled on up Troubled Blood by Robert Galbraith (J.K. Rowling). I know there’s controversy surrounding this book so I’m a little apprehensive to see what that’s all about. I’m not very far in yet and trying to remember what had happened in the previous book still. I hope it comes back to me soon.

KellyRecently finished: I know it may seem hard to believe, but I finished True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey! I remembered the end of the Ned Kelly movie I’ve seen so I knew I was getting close to a good conclusion in the book and powered through the ending. It was enjoyable and it feels so good to finally have finished it!
I flew through Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald – The Original Screenplay by J.K. Rowling. I remembered that screenplays move quickly, but I forgot they moved this quickly! I had a good chunk of time on Friday and wrapped this up quickly! The review might be a bit delayed, but I’ll get to it soon-ish.

AND I wrote two reviews! This has been one of my most productive weeks since the little one was born. I reviewed Where the Light Enters by Sara Donati on Monday. This was an okay read for me, but it didn’t get me excited enough to want to read the (eventual) third book in the series. I can happily put this one to rest. I gave it Three out of Five Stars.
I also reviewed A House at the Bottom of a Lake by Josh Malerman this week, my review going up on Tuesday. This was a fun, quick read that I powered through while rocking baby to sleep. Four out of Five Stars from me.

15850930Reading next: I’ve just started so many books that it’s hard to think about this! It will probably be an audiobook that I need next. I got a copy of Dollface by Renée Rosen when I needed to use up some Google Play Store money and I think I’ll grab that next. It’s been a while since I enjoyed a 1920s novel!
