22 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?

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: Finding time for The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss has been hit and miss. I should have more time now that work has slowed down and I’m less exhausted. But I’m having trouble remembering to pick it up. I hope I can remember more this next week.
I’m hoping to finish Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir today! My reading buddy has finished it already and I’m getting really close. If life could just slow down for two days to give me time, that would be great!
I went to a swim meet over the weekend that gave me some good time with The Evening and the Morning by Ken Follett. I’m still loving this one and hoping it continues to be equally wonderful as I keep going. I’m hoping for a big plot twist soon that will keep it moving forward so quickly.
I’m hoping to get back to Lágrimas en el mar (Salt to the Sea) by Ruta Sepetys once I finish Weir. I’ve liked it so far, I just have been distracted so I haven’t made great progress. I should have some more time to dedicate to this soon!

Recently finished: I’m very confident in having something next week!

Reading next: I’m finally seeing a path to the print version of Scene & Structure by Jack Bickham. I’m hoping it moves fast for me!
I’m looking forward to continuing my historical fiction audio trend with The Rebel Wife by Taylor Polites when I can!

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.

    Wishing you a relaxing weekend with some reading time!

    Here is my WWW: http://perfectretort.blogspot.com/2023/03/www-wednesday-march-22.html

    The author of Salt to the Sea was asked why she choose alternating POV’s in writing the book and explained when she was researching,
    she was reminded that many different regions/countries were affected and suffered during the evacuation and expulsion. When she interviewed people from those different countries, she realized that every human being views history through their own cultural lens, so created four separate characters to give voice to a particular regional experience and allow the reader to look through their “lens.”

    How do you like Project Hail Mary? I thought it was really good.
    Scene & Structure sounds good, but probably not a fast book, as you will probably want to take lots of notes and even write yourself a few things all along as you apply his advice. Have fun! What type of fiction are you writing?

        Doesn’t it feel at the end as if we could wish for a sequel?
        Congrats on your YA historical fiction. What period is it set in?


      • Sam March 23, 2023 at 5:39 AM #

        I think there’s for sure room for a sequel! That would be fun! I’ve written in the 1920s and 30s but I prefer the 20s. Happy reading!
