WWW Wednesday, 17-May-2023

17 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 switched back to a digital copy of The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss and was glad to get my hold renewed again! I’m about three quarters done with it and making some steady progress so I will remain optimistic on this one and finishing within the year (preferably this summer).
Reading Buddy and I met yesterday to talk about the second section of The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab. I’m back into hitting this one hard! Love the mystery of what’s going on and with what just happened in this section, I think we’re in for some major action soon!
I’ve hit half way through Broken (in the best possible way) by Jenny Lawson and the laughs keep rolling in. It’s fun to have a comedy and nice to have one I can pick up and put down a bit more as I need to. The chapters are completely independent so if I zone out a bit, I can come back in fully caught up quickly.
I’ made a big push with Scene & Structure by Jack M. Bickham before my Reading Buddy and I met yesterday but I still have a little bit to wrap up before I finish this one and get it back to the library. It’s so nice to have a short book for once!

Recently finished: Yet again I’m blank here. I think I can have one next week, though!

Reading next: Because I’m still thinking of picking up yet another print book with Seeing Sideways by Kristin Hersh. There’s no such thing as too many read-alongs, right?
I also need to start planning for another audiobook. I think it’s going to be How to Find Your Way in the Dark by Derek B. Miller. Of the three Miller books I’ve read, I liked two and was ‘Meh’ on a third. So I’m optimistic here!

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.

    Good Morning Sam! It’s great to hear that you are making progress with all of your books although I don’t know how you manage to have four books on the go at the same time. I think the most that I have ever read at once is three. My WWW post for this week is here https://witchyreading.wordpress.com/2023/05/17/www-wednesday-may-17/
