WWW Wednesdays

MizB sponsors this weekly event so we can all 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?

For some reason, I didn't do this last week so this covers two weeks time. I also want to add that my car ended up dying (needed a new battery and spark plugs) so a family friend had it to fix so I wasn't able to finish Jane Eyre. I borrowed my mom's 1995 Grand Am and it doesn't have a CD player. I am so close too; I'm on disc 19/18!

Currently Reading:

Watership Down
by Richard Adams
I just started this over the weekend and have not had a lot of time to read since so I am not too far into it.

Recently Finsihed:

The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides
I have to start off by saying this was probably one of the strangest written books I have ever read and having said that, I did really enjoy it. It's the story of 5 sisters who commit suicide within the same year and I never did really figure out who's point of view the story was from but it was good.

Saving Shiloh by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor
Tucker finally finished this series in school so I was also "allowed" to finish it! I have to say that I liked the ending. I'm not always happy with series' endings but this one felt good.

Dirty Secret
by Jessie Scholl
Besides being interesting to me, I read this book as my "D" choice in the A-Z challenge and as part of the Memorable Memoirs Challenge. It was the stroy of a woman who tries to help her mother who is a hoarder and how she comes to terms with it and her own issues. Very good book.

Coming Up:

Well, as I mentioned I have been without my car and CD player sbut I get it back tomorrow so I will be finsihing Jane Eyre and moving onto Uncle Tom's Cabin (my June choice for Celebrate the Author) as far as audio books. Next up for actual books is Summer of My German Soldier by Bette Greene

  1. It's been years since I've tried to read Watership Down, I remember watching the cartoon though. Have also read Jane Eyre, but none of the others yet. Enjoy your reading!
