19 Oct

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: Yet again, nothing with Soldiers’ Pay by William Faulkner. I’m trying to think when I can dedicate some time to this one. I try not to use screens before bed and that’s some of my best reading time. Any thoughts?
I have been making good progress in Powering Up by Anne Doyle. I use it to wind down for a few minutes after work, give my eyes a break from screens for a bit. I’m hoping I’ll have this one finished in a week or two.
I took a massive chunk out of Mississippi Trial, 1955 by Chris Crowe the first day I started it. I was driving all over and had it running, getting through a quarter of it! It’s not what I expected from the cover (I didn’t read much of the description) but I think it will be an interesting read.

Recently finished: I wrapped up Easy Prey by Catherine Lo on Saturday morning. I’ll be honest, the ending ruined it for me. I was into the story and trying to figure out the twist and I kind of called it, but I hated how it wrapped up. I think it was unrealistic and sent a really bad message. I haven’t written my review yet so this is subject to change, but I’m giving it Two out of Five stars so far.

Reading next: I’m going to keep executing my plan for finishing When Are You Reading? Challenge this year. Next physical book is going to be Sophie’s Choice by William Styron. I hear a lot about this book but don’t have much of an idea of the plot so I’m excited to read it!

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.

    Sorry to hear Easy Prey was a disappointment. I really enjoyed Sophie’s Choice although it covers some tough topics. I’ll be interested to learn what you make of it.

    I try to leave a period of time for reading, but it doesn’t always happen. I have books on my phone that I can whip out at a moment’s notice…

    It’s a shame about the ending of Easy Prey. I find that an ending often defines the star rating that I give a book.

    Have a great week!

    I’m sorry to hear you didn’t enjoy how Easy Prey ended! A bad ending really can ruin an entire book.

    Sophie’s Choice sounds interesting! I will have to see if the library has it available. It’s also a movie with Meryl Streep & Kevin Kline!

    Here’s my WWW Wednesday post! 🙂

    I started Sophie’s choice years ago and I have no idea why I stopped reading it. It probably got lost in my “currently reading” stack! Have a wonderful week.

    Sophie’s Choice is really good… not easy going, but still good. And WAY better than the movie which was all kitsch and scenery (with Streep only having sex with all her clothes on).
