Welcome to WWW Wednesday!

This meme was formerly hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm and revived on Taking on a World of Words — and shown to me by Aurore-Anne-Chehoke at Diary-of-a-black-city-girl.

The Three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

Easy enough, right?

What are you currently reading?

I’m working through the audiobook of The Right Stuff by Cornelia Funke and Lynn Redgrave (Narrator) and I’m reading Stephen Clark’s Hands Up.

What did you recently finish reading?

I just finished The Night Fire by Michael Connelly and Monday I finished Dragon Bones by Patricia Briggs and Joe Manganiello (Narrator) on audio.

What do you think you’ll read next?

My next book will be Fallen by Benedict Jacka (5 weeks after its release…what is wrong with me?), my next audiobook will be Undeath and Taxes by Drew Hayes and Kirby Heyborne (Narrator)

Hit me with your Three W’s in the comments! (no, really, do it!)

  1. I just finished reading the new Jack Reacher novel, Blue Moon, by Lee Child (Jack has some helpful sidekicks in this one, and the body count is immense) and the new Jackson Brodie novel, Big Sky, by Kate Atkinson (also some excellent satellite characters and wry humor). Two more different versions of the thriller genre would be hard to find.

    I am currently reading some non-fiction: “Priced Out” about the affordable housing shortage in US cities, “Don’t Think of an Elephant” about how to frame political discussions so that you can actually change minds, and “Black Swan” about how radically unlikely events can have radically wide consequences.

    Next on my list is “There, There” by Tommy Orange – a selection of my book club which I know nothing about. The cover blurbs hint that it involves the life of modern Amerindians in US cities. My book club tends toward Jewish Holocaust and Afro-American literature, so this will be a change.

    1. That’s a good way to think about Atkinson & Child, very different spots on the thriller continuum. (in currently 19 readers away from Blue Moon on my library’s wait list)

      I’m going to have to look at those other titles, they sound interesting.

  2. I took a break from Dickens to read a quick volume of manga, Yotsuba #14 but then it’s back to the grind stone.

    I’ve been doing some new office stuff at work, so I come home mentally wiped and, to be honest, rather discouraged. So I’ve been watching a lot more crappola movies than reading this week :-/
