30 Jul

Some progress for MizB’s WWW meme. I’m reading too much. More accurately; I’m reading too much at once.

www_wednesdays4The 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’ve slowed a bit on  The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien. Mostly because the eBook had to be returned so I’m waiting for it to come back. This is a slow torture.. My carpool buddy and I are getting a slow start Looking for Alaska by John Green. We only drove together once last week because I was so busy so hopefully we can make some big progress this week. I’m speeding through  The Creation of Eve by Lynn Cullen. This past weekend I went camping with my husband and got to do the one thing I wanted to do more than anything else; read on the beach. It was glorious. While I wait for my next audiobook to get in, I’m listening to Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock by Matthew Quick. Soon this one will go on the back burner. My husband and I are listening to Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs on audiobook during our recent car trips. We should finish it this weekend when we go on (another) camping trip.

Recently finished: Just one; The End of Your Life Book Club by Will Schwalbe. I finished it on Saturday and had a book club meeting over it on Monday. It was meh. Review coming soon.

Speaking of reviews, I wrote some this past week! Check out Brave New World by Aldous Huxley and Fast Food Nation by Eric Schlosser.

Reading Next:  I’ve put two things on hold at the library: Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett on audio and Beneath a Marble Sky by John Shors. The Follett is a personal challenge and the Shors is for my When Are You Reading? Challenge.

I hope to finish at least one more this week. Probably the Cullen and the Riggs. How is your WWW? Leave a comment and let me know and check out the original post on MizB’s blog!

Until next time, write on.

    “Meh” is exactly what I thought too! I love that you listen to different books with different people. This school year I’d like to get back to listening to audio books with my sons. My books are here: http://alenaslife.wordpress.com/2014/07/30/w-w-w-wednesday-books-read-reading-and-to-read-2/

      It’s not that it wasn’t good, I just didn’t connect with Will because we come from very different places and times in our lives. Maybe I’d enjoy it more if I were older or if a loved one had suffered from cancer. My family tends towards heart disease, which is a quicker death.
      Happy reading!

    Noticed you just finished Brave New World and went on to read your review. I feel about the same as you do, not one of my favorites, but definitely a classic. I’m curious if you’ve read 1984 by George Orwell, yet. I’ve noticed people usually like one more than the other.

    Anyway, happy Wednesday, here’s my list: http://novelisticdelights.blogspot.com/2014/07/www-wednesdays-no-1.html

      I read 1984 way back in high school, but I did like it. That’s interesting that people like one more than the other. Did you enjoy 1984 more?
      Happy Reading!

        I did! 1984 is actually one of my favorite books. I think it just seemed more realistic to me at the time.

        That’s a good way to describe it. ‘Brave New World’ seemed too far fetched.

    That’s a lot of books! I hope you have a nice camping trip. I’m curious what you think of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. I’m stuck on the middle grade book series Skulduggery Pleasant haha. (Meaning I keep trying to read other books, but those silly books keep pulling me in.)

      So far we really like it. We’re getting to the end and I can tell it’s setting up for a series. Il hoping the climax of this book isn’t too much of a cliffhanger! We should finish it on our way to the campsite.
