WWW Wednesday, 22-February-2023

22 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 had a work event on the other side of town over the weekend which gave me some good time with Mexican White Boy by Matt de la Peña. I’m still not loving this one, honestly, but I’ll get through it pretty soon here.
I’ve continued to move well through The Invisible Guardian by Dolores Redondo and I suspect I’ll finish it by next week. It’s an interesting story, even if I don’t love it. I do like how fast it’s moving and the combination of crime investigation and the supernatural is fun.
I’ve tried to find time for The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss but it’s been a struggle. I know this one will be a long read and I’m really OK with that. It’s fun to pick up and I’ve enjoyed it when I’ve been able to.

Recently finished: Nothing again this week, though I suspect I’ll have some news next week if I keep pushing through books as I’ve been doing. I did get caught up on book reviews finally! My review of Why We Swim by Bonnie Tsui went up on Monday. Here’s to being caught up! I hope it doesn’t last long.

Reading next: I got my copy of Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir from my reading buddy so that’s sitting on my bedside waiting for me. I’m excited to read something that should be pretty fast paced. That’s always a welcome change every once in a while.
I’ll likely need an audiobook soon, too. I think I’m going to bite a big bullet I’ve been avoiding and go for The Evening and the Morning by Ken Follett. I’ve adored the other Kingsbridge books so I know I’ll love this. But 24 hours on audio can be a bit intimidating!

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.

    Sounds like you’re making great progress with your books. I’m in the same position as you with reviews. I finished quite a few books while I was on holiday and now need to write my reviews.

    It’s been a while since I read any Ken Follett books. Sounds like a great audio book to sink your teeth into. Enjoy!

    I read The Name of the Wind several years ago and remember that I liked it, but it was really loooooong. Good luck!

    Good luck with the audiobook. Sounds like a marathon. I’m pretty sure I’ve read the Evening and the Morning and liked it. I’m also pretty sure I would have read the ebook version but I can’t see any trace of it on NetGalley feedback or my kindle library. I have difficulty concentrating when it’s an audiobook. I seem to miss bits. I think my brain must go into standby!

    I want to try Ken Follett but I keep putting it off. I hear such great things about his books.

    Sometimes with chunky books… I just let them sit and grab them when I can and read a bit at a time.

    I’ve been making my way through Project Hail Mary as an audiobook and it’s so exciting! I went into it knowing absolutely nothing about the story, so discovering it along the way has been a lot of fun.

    Here’s my WWW! I haven’t done one in a long while, but I’m trying again. https://wordsonkey.wordpress.com/2023/02/22/www-wednesday-02-22-23/

      I know nothing going in either so this is shaping up for a good adventure. Happy reading!

    I’ve got Project Hail Mary on hold at the library but it looks like it’ll be a few months before it’s my turn! That’s OK though, I’ve got plenty to keep me going in the interim 🙂

    I love seeing how popular the WWW Wednesday blog post still is after all this time.
