20 Jul

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?

91m+9RkhGfLCurrently reading: Because of a push to finish other books, I didn’t make much progress in Rebeldes (The Outsiders) by S.E. Hinton. I’m hoping to get back to it a bit more now. I love this story and it’s helping me practice some new vocabulary and utilize some language skills I haven’t had to use for a while.
I made a respectable amount of progress in Dollface by Renée Rosen. Some of the book has been predictable, which is a bit of a shame, but I’m still enjoying the setting and some of the characters. I hope I can keep pushing forward in this one.
I was able to start Shades of Magic: The Steel Prince by V.E. Schwab and illustrated by Andrea Olimpieri. Reading a comic on my phone hasn’t been as hard as I thought! Yes, it’s a bit of pinching and zooming, but it’s still very doable while rocking a baby to sleep. I believe there are three volumes out and I’m hoping to read all three before I write a review.


Recently finished: I stayed up way later than I should have to finish Troubled Blood by Robert Galbraith (J.K. Rowling). It was hard to concentrate at work one day with this hanging over my head so I figured I’d be better of with a late night to wrap it up and I’m glad I did in the end. It was a great ending. I’ll have a lot more to say in a review but I’m not sure how soon that will be up. I hope soon! I gave the book Five out of Five Stars.

44510181Reading next: It’s crazy to think I’ll need another ebook so soon, but I’m flying through this comic! I think I’ll pick up another Josh Malerman book next, Malorie. I know I just read one of his books, but I had a lot on my TBR and I feel like I’m flying through it lately! Just got to keep rolling.

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.

    Following your progress/opinions on Dollface. I read White Collar Girl by the same author and while I enjoyed a lot of it, there were some errors that got under my skin (I wish she’d had a better editor).

    This week, I’ve got a bio/memoir and I knocked off a mystery.

      I wonder if I’d catch them since I’m doing the audiobook. That’s a good heads up, thanks! Happy reading.

    Yay for pushing through. I try to spend fairly equal amounts of time on books, but sometimes one takes more priority. I need to look into the Robert Galbraith books (when I get time 🙄).

    I haven’t tried reading a comic on my Kindle. I have one, but haven’t read it yet.

    Have a great week!

    Not a great reading week for me because I was on a road trip. Plus I had to return some unread library books, boo! I’m anxious for your review of Troubled Blood!
