23 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?

Currently reading: So I realized I need to finish Soldiers’ Pay by William Faulkner for my reading challenge this year. I think it’s giving me some good motivation to pick it up more often, even if it’s just for a page or two. I’ll keep pushing forward, but it’s still not gripping me.
I’m SO close to finishing My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand. I’m having a lot of fun with this one and I find myself picking it up a lot so progress has been good. I’m optimistic it’s over soon!
I finally met the titular Sophie in Sophie’s Choice by William Styron. I’m hoping the pace picks up a bit more now. I realized I don’t need this for a reading challenge like I thought, so I’m tempted to put it down or maybe just keep going at a relaxed pace. I’m still not sure. I’ll hold on to it for now as I decide.

Recently finished: Nada. Zilch. Nothing. I think I’ll have one here next week so I’m not sweating it, but finishing my reading challenge is looking like a big hill to climb!

Reading next: I might go ahead and check out The Birth of Venus by Sarah Durant because I’ll start it really soon and I don’t want to lose it to someone else! Looking forward to some more good historical fiction to wrap up the year.

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.
