WWW.Wednesday: All About Books!


Books are my favorite things in the world. I was recently accused (identity to remain nameless) of reading too much. I have no problem admitting it. And I’ve been reading instead of writing so that’s my excuse for an almost complete disregard for this blog. It’s been fantastic and if I hadn’t already committed to NaBlogPoMo over at Yeah Write, I would happily continue reading. My “tbr” list is long.

So for WWW. Wednesday at Should Be Reading (thank you for bringing everyone together) we need to answer these three questions to play along.

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

I am currently reading:


To say that I’m obsessed with this book is an understatement. I think about it all the time. I read it while I cook, wait in the car, etc… I even woke during last night (4:00am) seemingly unable to sleep and read an hour. I can’t seem to think about anything else. Only 300 pages left (At a point where wheels are falling off and I love when that happens) of nearly 800. I will be depressed when I finish.

And currently listening to:


I never think of myself as a YA fan but have read a few lately. This one (about 1/3 in) is, for me, outstanding so far. Ahhhh, young and new love. There’s nothing like it in the world.

I recently finished:


I really, really liked this light book. It was quirky. I love quirky. It kept me wanting to read page after page right to the end. Very sweet.

I’m not entirely sure what I will read next but it will be between two I have sitting next to my bed:


 Or...

Happy Hump Day!!!

    1. I can't find the words right now to explain how much I am loving The Goldfinch!!!!!!! The writing, the characters, the story, the everything!

  3. I adored "Eleanor & Park"--although I read it rather than listened to it. I'm on the wait list at my library for "Goldfinch"--there are a lot of people ahead of me, so I'll just have to be in suspense for awhile!

  6. EVERYONE I know who has picked up E&P has loved it, and now Ms. Gina makes it unanimous! I'm starting to think I'm the only one who hasn't read it yet. :)

  7. thanks for all those recommendations. I am currently knee deep in books that other author/blogger friends have written, but when I come up for air, I will download The Goldfinch. I love a story that keeps you up and thinking.

    hope all is well. xo

    1. And I got up again! I don't have enough time in the day to read everything I want to read! The list is pleasantly, yet frustratingly, way too long!

  8. If you're into a YA kick I recommend my good friend's book Me, Him, Them and It. She somehow nails present tense.

    1. I will check it out! Thanks. My kick may end here for a bit because of the stack I would like to plow (meant lovingly) through.

    2. And present tense is tough! A t least for me it is.
