1 Mar

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: I keep finding a few minutes here and there to move forward in The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. It’s not a great pace forward, but it’s working for me. I’ll get through this eventually and I’m not in a hurry.
My reading buddy and I got started on Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir! We were planning 70 page chunks, but with how fast we flew through the first one, I’m thinking we might have to make them longer. Maybe we should go 100 pages at a time. We’ll be starting the second chunk soon!
I’m going all in on a long audiobook. I started The Evening and the Morning by Ken Follett late last week. I’m over an hour in already and the writing is absolutely wonderful, again. Follett has blown me away over and over. I really enjoy his books.
I needed to start my Spanish read of the year and picked up Lágrimas en el mar (Salt to the Sea) by Ruta Sepetys. My sister in law recommended this one to me and I know it’s a tear jerker. I like the short chapter style which will make it a lot easier for me to pick up and put down.

Recently finished: This was a great week for finishing books! I finished the audio for Mexican White Boy by Matt de la Peña and found the time to write a review! It went up on Monday. The book was a little disappointing to me because it felt like it was going to try to tackle so many topics only to leave a lot of them unfinished. I gave it Three out of Five Stars.
On Friday, I wrapped up The Invisible Guardian by Dolores Redondo. This one surprised me a lot. I loved the racing finish that I expected from a crime novel. I thought I had it figured out but I was off by a little bit and couldn’t figure it out until the big reveal. The style wasn’t my favorite, but it was still enjoyable. I’m unsure how I feel about the mix of folklore into the story, but I’ll sort that out when I do a review over the weekend.

Reading next: It seems hard to think about a ‘next’ book when I’m at the beginning of so many books! I’ll skip this for a week and enjoy the books I’m reading instead of thinking about what’s coming up.
