WWW Wednesdays

MizB sponsors this weekly event so we can share what we are reading....

To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…

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

I didn't get a chance to post this last week so this is what I've been up to for the past two weeks...

Currently Reading...
Journey to the Center of the Earth by Jules Verne
Almost done with this one and I have really enjoyed it!

The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver
This is the story of a family who goes on a mission to the Congo in 1960 to spread the word of Jesus. the family consists of a preacher, his wife and their four daughters and is told through the point of view of the mother and her daughters. Very interesting and I am now almost done with it.

The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison
I think this may have been one of those books on some reading list in college that I never read. I am only on the first few pages.

Recently Finished...
Freedom by Jonathan Frazen
Though this one took me a long time to get through, I really enjoyed it! It's about that perfect family who seems to have it all and then it all falls apart. It's told from each of the family member's perspective which made it pretty interesting!

Little Bee by Chris Cleave
For a book I picked up because I liked the cover, this one really surprised me! It was about two women who meet one day under extraordinary circumstances and then picks up when they meet again 2 years later. I was speechless when I finished it...really good!

I kept leaving Journey to the Center of the Earth either at home or at work so I started reading this one and really liked. I'm hoping to get to the library to get the next two.

Coming Up...
Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving
Rip Van Winkle by Washington Irving
I will be reading/listening to both of these for the Celebrate the Author challenge for April.

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
I have started and never finished this book many times and will be reading it this time for the Back to the Classics Challenge.

  1. Little Bee sounds so interesting! I just checked and my library has it so it's going on my TBR list.
