15 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’ve found success making time for The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss during spare moments. Usually waiting for my kid to fall asleep during nap time. We give them five minutes to calm down on their own and leave the room which is great for getting a few pages in!
The weather is finally turning around which leaves time for running and listening to The Evening and the Morning by Ken Follett. Two of the plot lines just came together and I can’t wait to see where it leads!
Because I was focused on Weir, I’m only just now getting back to spending a lot of time with Lágrimas en el mar (Salt to the Sea) by Ruta Sepetys. I want to finish this before I even think about another Buddy Read. We usually take a month or so off in between to read other books we want to so I should have plenty of time to finish it.

Recently finished: I absolutely flew through Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir. After each time I met with my reading buddy, it felt like I’d get through the next chunk in 48 hours. We even made our chunks longer so we would meet less frequently but I don’t think it had any impact on how often we were meeting. This last chunk we read was absolutely incredible and I loved the ending. We met earlier this week to chat about it and I posted my review on Monday. I gave the book Five out of Five stars and I’m excited to see it’s been optioned for a movie! No solid release date yet, but it looks like the goal is 2024. I’ll plan to be there!

Reading next: I’m going to wait until I’m closer to finishing Sepetys before I grab Scene & Structure by Jack Bickham on an interlibrary loan. Those can be hard to renew so I don’t want it sitting for too long.
Finishing Follett seems so far off, but I still plan to grab The Rebel Wife by Taylor Polites when it’s time to start another one.
