27 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?

44510181Currently reading: I made a little progress with Rebeldes (The Outsiders) by S.E. Hinton but with a sick Baby at home, I’ve been collapsing into bed at night instead of reading before I shut off the light. Hopefully, things will turn around and they’ll be on the mend and I’ll be back to reading.
I’ve been keeping a good pace with Dollface by Renée Rosen. I’ll be on this one for a while, but it’s not going to be here forever. I’m hoping once my partner is fully recovered, I can run more and it will move faster.
I picked up Malorie by Josh Malerman a little sooner than I thought I would. It was a struggle to read a comic while holding the baby, so I picked this up to have something where it was easier to change font size. It’s a good adventure so far. I’ll see if I can keep up the pace!

Recently finished: I did wrap up Shades of Magic: The Steel Prince by V.E. Schwab and illustrated by Andrea Olimpieri! I enjoyed the backstory of Maxim and the adventure in this book, but I’m still not sure comics are a format for me. I tend to read the text and turn the page without really looking at the art enough. I’m not good at slowing down and appreciating that much. I’m a bit backed up on reviews but I know I’ll get to this one soon!

I was also able to post my review of Troubled Blood by Robert Galbraith (J.K. Rowling). I absolutely loved it and gave it Five out of Five stars. Please pop over and read my thoughts!

51mXdAaJ+lLReading next: It’s hard to guess what I’ll need next, an ebook or an audiobook. If it’s an ebook, I’ll probably pick up Soldiers’ Pay by William Faulkner. I’ve had this on my list for a while and while I own a physical copy, I’m likely to get to an ebook sooner.
If it’s an audiobook, I’m likely to go for Vessel by Lisa A. Nichols. I’ve had this on my list or ages so it would be great to finally knock it out!

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.

    I can sympathise about collapsing into bed at night instead of reading – know the feeling! Agree about Troubled Blood. Apparently, the next book in the series should come out soon. :-). My WWW post:

    I know how you feel. It’s less like falling asleep than surrendering to it, right? Hope your partner and baby are both better soon. This week I’ve got a thriller with with a deliciously creepy twist and a poignant memoir.

    I’m glad you enjoyed Troubled Blood; that really came across in your review. I admire an author who can construct a mystery where the solution is not apparent until the very last pages. On the other hand, sometimes it’s nice when you spot clues and your guess is right. It is sometimes difficult to divorce an author’s views from their books. For example there is a UK politician whose views I find so distasteful I would never read any of their books, even if they were good (which I’ve heard they’re not). P.S.Hope baby is better soon.
