26 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?

Note: For users of Blogspot blogs, I’m unable to comment on your posts as a WordPress blogger unless you’ve enabled Name/URL comments. This is a known WordPress/Blogspot issue. Please consider enabling this to participate more fully in the community.


Currently reading: I read a few pages of Soldiers’ Pay by William Faulkner, but nothing to brag about. I’m still trying to figure out where in my day this fits so please let me know if you have any suggestions!
I’m still moving well through Powering Up by Anne Doyle. I’d hoped it would be finished this week, but I’ll push it out one more week. Staying positive here!
I started a new audiobook! I’m still determined to wrap up my reading challenge before the end of the year, so I jumped into My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand. I’m hoping it’s a quick listen for me! I don’t have any long trips coming up that will take a chunk out of it so it might be a while.

Recently finished: I took a drive to se some friends over the weekend and that allowed me to take a massive chunk out of Mississippi Trial, 1955 by Chris Crowe. I finished it up earlier this week. I feel a little iffy about this one, but I liked it overall. I’m going to have a lot to say about it in a review so keep an eye out for that one.

I posted my review of Easy Prey by Catherine Lo on Monday. This one took a turn at the very end that I didn’t care for and it knocked it down a lot in my mind. I ended up giving it Two out of Five Stars.

Reading next: I put a hold on Sophie’s Choice by William Styron and it came in! It’s sitting next to my bed now and I’ll pick it up as soon as I finish Doyle. I’m excited to jump in and probably see the movie after!

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.

    Good Morning Sam. Nice to hear that you’ve made progress with your reading this week. Sophie’s Choice looks really interesting. Here’s my WWW post for this week https://witchyreading.wordpress.com/2022/10/26/www-wednesday-october-26/

    I’m glad you haven’t seen the movie of Sophie’s Choice yet. It’s a good movie, but already knowing what will happen can diminish the impact of the book somewhat (and vice versa).

    This week I’ve got a memoir and a cozy mystery with none-too-cozy heroine.

    Wow, lots of progress this week. Sorry to hear it was the ending of Easy Prey that let it down. So disappointing when that happens in a book you’ve invested time in.

    I’ve had to stop one of my books to get a Blog Tour book done because I keep falling asleep early in the evening – with my son starting school and bringing home germs it’s been a tiring couple of months! I set times during the day to read – sometimes I miss them and do it a bit later, but it does mean that I am constantly moving in the book.

    It is a shame when the ending of a book is disappointing.

    It’s a great feeling though to be excited for a book. I’ve put aside books to be my Christmas presents so I know that I will have exciting books for the new year to read!

    I hope that you have a good week this week.

    I’ve always heard of Sophie’s Choice but never read the book or seen the movie. Hope you enjoy both!

    My week (and the past few weeks) have not been great. Depression is kicking my butt and that always impacts my reading progress. I know it will get better, but it’s irritating.

      Bit of a random question, but I thought I might as well ask. How do you make the link to your post show up like that? The little block excerpt thingy. I like the way it looks!

        I wish I had a good answer for you, but it honestly just started doing that one day, seemingly on its own. I assumed it was the result of an update on WordPress’s end or something. I’m sorry I can’t be more helpful 😅

        No problem! Thanks for taking the time to respond anyway. Let’s just hope the wordpress gods decide to do it for me too then 😛

    I loved My Lady Jane. It was a fun read!

    I agree with Cathy – if you watch the movie the book lacks mounting tension. I thought about it since last week and this is why I stopped reading it.

        When I c/p the link to my post, I hit enter after it and then hit post comment. It’s rather new (within the past year), and I only found out about it when I saw the comments on this post….lol.
