18 Jan

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?

REAL QUICK! If you haven’t heard, I’m running the When Are You Reading? Challenge for the tenth year! Please consider joining in for this landmark year!

Currently reading: I made a decent dent in Sophie’s Choice by William Styron on vacation! I’m over half way through it now. I can’t say I’m absorbed by any means, but I’m slightly more invested than I was and I’m hoping that carries me through to finishing it.
There wasn’t a lot of time for audio so I haven’t done too much with Any Way the Wind Blows (Simon Snow #3) by Rainbow Rowell. I’m still liking this one a lot and I know I’ll push through and finish it soon.
I had a change of plans with my ebook. I’d put in a bunch of holds and way too many of them came through at once! I ended up going with Why We Swim by Bonnis Tsui. I love swimming so when this one came out in 2020, it was on my radar. Reading it on the beach with waves crashing was wonderful. I’m already half way through and hope to keep pushing on.

Recently finished: I finished a book! I was loving Ready Player Two by Ernest Cline and sped through it on my vacation. It was really fun, though not as much as the first book. I didn’t expect to as I find the sequels to hugely popular books are rarely as good at the first. I’m very behind on reviews right now though I’m trying to catch up! I’m giving this one Four out of Five Stars for now. Cline is a fun writer and so imaginative. I’ll look forward to other books he writes in the future.

I also (finally) wrote a review! Please check out my thoughts on The Birth of Venus by Sarah Dunant. I gave it Three out of Five Stars.

Reading next: I still plan on Mexican White Boy by Matt de la Peña being my next eaudiobook. I’m looking forward to getting through many of these Summer Reading Downloads I have. I’m not sure about my next ebook at the moment so I’ll refrain from guessing here just yet.
