10 May

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: I’m back to print for The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss but really trying to hurry it along! I’ve gotten more into the story over the last few chapters and I’m pushing myself to find snippets of time to enjoy it and so far, it seems to be working!
I had my first meeting with my Reading Buddy to talk about The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab. She’s loving it as much as me! I finished the second chunk as well and I’m waiting for her to catch up since I sped through it. There was a lot of time where I felt like not much was happening, but the writing kept me moving forward. Now things are changing and I can’t wait to see where they go!
Listening to Broken (in the best possible way) by Jenny Lawson on audio should come with a warning. I was running while listening last week and had to stop and walk because I started laughing so hard. I adore Lawson’s sense of humor and will keep pushing forward with this one!
I started in on Scene & Structure by Jack M. Bickham, slowly but surely. I’ll get to it between other books and I hope to finish before I have to get it back to the library!

Recently finished: Nothing new this week but I did post my review of The Rebel Wife by Taylor M. Polites. This book wasn’t a win for me and I ended up giving it only Two out of Five Stars.

Reading next: Because I don’t have enough books in progress, I’m starting another Buddy Read with another friend. We’re going to read Seeing Sideways by Kristin Hersh together. We heard her speak at the Midwest Literary Walk (which is reminding me I owe y’all a post about that) and thought this one would speak to the two of us because we both have young kids. We’ll be starting soon!

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.

    Lawson is definitely hilarious! I haven’t listened to Broken yet, but I thoroughly enjoyed Let’s Pretend This Never Happened.

    I’m quite literally just returning to blogging after an unexpected hiatus due to an unplanned relocation. It just feels good to be ‘back’ but if I can read at least four books I slated to read this May, I’d count myself blessed. As it has been a hard road ‘back’ to reading, blogging and being socially present. Just a lot of life behind the blog right now.

    Here’s mine: (WWW_10th May)
