19 Apr

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 did alright with The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss this week! I was on a business trip and had a dinner alone where this book was my date. We had a great time! Thankfully, I was able to renew it again so I’m not in danger of losing it mid read for another three weeks. We’ll see what I can do.
I had time to keep moving with Lágrimas en el mar (Salt to the Sea) by Ruta Sepetys, too, but it feels like I’m not making any progress! I’m getting frustrated but I know it’s a longer one so it makes sense it’s taking its time.
I started The Rebel Wife by Taylor M. Polites on my trip and made a pretty sizeable dent in it during the drive. It wasn’t a great start to me but I’m figuring out the characters relationships now and seeing the story take place. This isn’t a time period I know much about so I’m learning a lot as I go.

Recently finished: IAs expected, I wrapped up The Evening and the Morning by Ken Follett on my drive last week. It feels SO GOOD to finally have something in this section! This was a long book and I knew it would take me time, but it still feels like it took too long. I gave this one Four out of Five Stars. You can see my review here on the blog, which I posted yesterday. I love this series and the care Follett takes in his Kingsbridge world. I can’t wait for the fourth installment to come out later this year!

Reading next: It still seems like forever before I’ll start Scene & Structure by Jack Bickham. Non fiction will be a nice change of pace! I might push another one in front of this, though. Something caught my eye while traveling that may take precedent. We’ll see.

    Well done on finishing the Follett. I enjoyed the review. I hope that you’ll start to enjoy The Rebel Wife more as you get into it. Here’s my WWW post for this week. https://witchyreading.wordpress.com/2023/04/19/www-wednesday-april-19/

    I’m glad The Evening and the Morning lived up to your expectations. I love a good prequel as well. And well done for ticking off another time period for the challenge.

    I’m not posting this week. I got a ‘new’ laptop yesterday and I’m still getting used to it (and stop trying to touch the screen to make things happen – it doesn’t have a touch screen). However it is good to be able to touch type instead of using two fingers to type on my tablet.

    I haven’t made much progress with my reading and am still on last week’s titles, Smoke and Ashes (Abir Mukherjee) and Life Without Children (Roddy Doyle). I’m enjoying both of them but have just been busy doing other things (drawing and painting). I still don’t know what I’ll reading next as I have a few books reserved on Libby so it will depend what becomes available .first.
