8 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: Not a lot of movement this week. I’ve been really exhausted from work so I’ve forsaken The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss in exchange for the quick endorphin burst of Instagram. Hopefully I can find my footing this week.
I’ve gotten through the second stopping point in Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir and will be meeting with my Reading Buddy soon to debrief. This one is good. I’m really enjoying it and finding it hard to stop when I hit our stopping points. We even made our sections longer so I wouldn’t speed through so fast. It’s not working.
There have been a few drives into the office (I know, weird) for me that have given me time to enjoy The Evening and the Morning by Ken Follett in larger chunks. I’m loving it so much and remembering why I will read anything with Kingsbridge on the cover. What amazing writing.
The short chapters in Lágrimas en el mar (Salt to the Sea) by Ruta Sepetys are keeping me moving along well! Enjoying this story and learning more about the characters one short chapter at a time.

Recently finished: Nothing new finished this week. However, I finished my review of The Invisible Guardian by Dolores Redondo and posted it on Monday. I had some really mixed feelings about this one and after reading some other reviews, wasn’t alone. I did learn that it’s a Netflix movie so I’m looking forward to enjoying that and see how it was adopted!

Reading next: It still seems hard to think ahead, but I should make sure I have a plan. My ebook is so long I’m not going to worry about that yet. I think a physical book is likely to be where I see turnover next, though I’m making good progress with my audiobook so I’ll need a plan there, too. For a physical book, I need to do an Interlibrary Loan and grab Scene & Structure by Jack Bickham. It’s been a little bit since I read a book about writing. Maybe I’ll be motivated?
For an audiobook, I’ll pick up The Rebel Wife by Taylor Polites. I’ve had this on my list for a while and I need some more historical fiction in my life!

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.

    Wow, I am very impressed that you are reading The Name of the Wind, Project Hail Mary and The Evening and the Morning at the same time. All 3 are outstanding reads that have gotten some very high ratings from me over the years. I hope you have as much fun with them as I did.
