15 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 haven’t moved much in Mexican White Boy by Matt de la Peña. I did start running again, though, and that is some solid listening time for me. As it gets warmer, I’m hoping I can keep moving through this one at a good pace.
Surprisingly, I’ve moved well through The Invisible Guardian by Dolores Redondo. I’m well over half way through and I’m getting intrigued by the way Amaia’s life is intertwined with the crime and I’ve made time to read this before bed more and more often.
There hasn’t been much progress in The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. Work has been really busy lately and the last thing I want to do when I log off is look at a screen again. It’s kept me focused on my print books, but this has suffered.

Recently finished: Nothing new finished this week. I did manage to get a review up! After long last, I finished and reviewed Sophie’s Choice by William Styron. I had a lot of issues with this book despite having a great ending. I gave it Three out of Five Stars and posted my review on Monday.

Reading next: Good news! My reading buddy and I are picking up our Buddy Reads again! We’ve both had kiddos so we took a pause but now that they’re both officially toddlers, we’re going to see how this goes. Our first read is going to be Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir. I think we’re both hoping for something that’s fast paced as we read it between midnight wake-ups, messy dinner times, and snuggles. Wish us luck!

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.

    Yay for more reading time whilst running. Kids take up so much time, but I found that the toddler years were great for reading 🙂 Hopefully I will get to do another buddy read with my family, but with all of us being busy with life we will see!

    Happy Wednesday!

    The only books you mention that I’ve come across are Sophie’s Choice and Project Hail Mary but I haven’t read either of them. I have read Weir’s earlier book, The Martian which I enjoyed. Happy reading!
