WWW Wednesday, 8-February-2023

8 Feb

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’m moving slowly through Mexican White Boy by Matt de la Peña. It hasn’t really grabbed my attention yet so it’s a slow journey. I’m hoping something in it picks up soon and helps me move through it faster.
I’ve made good progress in The Invisible Guardian by Dolores Redondo. Some of the chapters are really short which helps me move fast. Some are longer and give some good story development. I like having a mystery going because they’re so fast paced so I’m enjoying this one!
I changed my mind about an ebook. I picked up The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. An old coworker of mine had recommended this to me a ways back when we were talking books. I’m enjoying the story so far and hoping to make decent progress on it!

Recently finished: I didn’t expect to finish Why We Swim by Bonnis Tsui last week but wrapped it up! The last ten percent of the book was notes and references. I liked the book, but was a little confused about the structure of it. I have to think through it more when I go to write the review, but for now I’m giving it Three out of Five Stars.

I got one more book review done! (I’m trying to do one per week.) My review of Any Way the Wind Blows by Rainbow Rowell went up on Monday. I’m sticking with my Three out of Five Star review for this one. I could see another book in the series, but I do think it’s the end.

Reading next: I feel like I should stop guessing- I’m always so far off! I’m very early on in all my books this week so it feels safe to say I won’t need a new book before next Wednesday. I’ll leave this blank for 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 that you enjoy The Name of the Wind. It’s a great book although frustrating that there is no sign of Patrick Rothfuss ever finishing the series. Have a great week Sam and here’s my WWW post for this week, https://witchyreading.wordpress.com/2023/02/08/www-wednesday-february-8/

    I’m intimidated by The Name of the Wind, though I’ve heard really good things about it. It’s just so dang long. I hope you enjoy it! Have a great week.

    If I’m moving really slow through a book I usually DNF it. I need fast paced stories with good characters I’m invested in. Hope you finish Mexican White Boy soon!

    I hope you like ‘The Name of the Wind’ – I loved it. I just finished ‘The Slow Regard of Silent Things’ which is a novella about one of the side characters in that series! My post: https://emwithpen.com/2023/02/08/www-wednesday-8-february-2023/
