9 Nov

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 was so optimistic about Soldiers’ Pay by William Faulkner after last week, but I didn’t make any progress this week. I don’t want to hope for doctor’s appointments, but they do seem to be a good time for me to get some reading done.
I’ve made fair progress on My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand despite being slow with everything else. It’s a longer book, though, so I’m not close to being done still. I really like the narrator and it’s fun to pick this up whenever I get a few spare minutes!
I finally started on Sophie’s Choice by William Styron! I’m hoping I can renew my hold at the library because I started so much later than planned. Fingers crossed! I’m also looking forward to a good movie adaptation. I haven’t watched one of those in a while.

Recently finished: I wrapped up Powering Up by Anne Doyle on Saturday! I’ve got some mixed feelings on it, so I’m not quite ready to give it a rating yet, but I’m thinking of Three Stars. I’m planning to have a review up next week so I’ll iron it out by then.

Reading next: Nothing solid planned at this time. I’ll keep pushing to finish my reading challenge, but it will depend on what book I finish next where I’ll head. I am enjoying a good amount of historical fiction right now!

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 hope your library helps you out with the hold.

    This week I have two mysteries, one by a writer I’d never heard of and another by the writer who practically invited the form:

    I’m trying to find any spare moment I can to read books from my NetGalley shelf as part of the #NetGalleyNovember readathon. This morning’s included ten minutes while waiting at the bus stop.

    I pray for doctors and my son/daughter’s orthodontist appointments so I can read. But I usually read at night…after everyone is asleep. Here’s mine:

    Keeping my fingers crossed for you being able to renew your hold! It’s the worst when you have to return it and then wait to get back to it when it’s available again. Hope you have a great week!

    Yes, Sophie’s Choice is a really good book. But the film… OY VEY! Really not good. This was made back when Meryl Streep only had sex scenes where she was fully clothed, and her accent is ATROCIOUS! Also, they screw things up in the film where they make things we have to figure out for ourselves, overly obvious – like we’re stupid. I would NOT expect a good adaptation, because it isn’t. Sorry!

    As far as planning what to read next–sometimes it’s better not to plan and let serendipity take hold.
