28 Sep

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?

Currently reading: I keep reminding myself to pick up Soldiers’ Pay by William Faulkner when I find a minute. It means I read a few screens worth of it at a time, but I’m picking my way through it slowly.
I’ve been making good progress in Like No Other by Una LaMarche during drives and runs. I’m over half way through this one and the plot has been really enjoyable!
I picked up Powering Up by Anne Doyle finally! I’ve been looking forward to a change to non-fiction for a while so I’m excited to get into this.

Recently finished: I wrapped up The 158-Pound Marriage by John Irving during a vacation day last Friday. I wanted to like this book, but it really wasn’t for me. I like some of Irving’s other work so I was optimistic, but after a start I didn’t really enjoy, it didn’t get better for me. And the ending left me wanting more so I was disappointed. I’ll get more thoughts together in a review eventually. I’m giving this one Two out of Five Stars.

Speaking of reviews, I finally finished mine for Vessel by Lisa A. Nichols! It went up on Monday. I couldn’t bring myself to change my rating on this from my original call at Three out of Five Stars. I can’t say why, but it just didn’t do it for me.

Reading next: It looks like I’ll need an audiobook next. Next on the docket is Easy Prey by Catherine Lo. This is another YA book that I got as a library download a few years ago. I’m into that part of my TBR. I’m going to reserve the right to switch this one out, though. I might need a bit of a change of genre and I’ll make that call later.
