WWW Wednesday... April 18

Should Be Reading

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

• What are you currently reading?
  •  Rotters by Daniel Kraus....Winner of the Odyssey Award for audiobooks. This book has creepy written all over it...it is about grave robbers.
  • Breaking Night by Liz Murray... a memoir about growing up in a drug-addicted household yet triumphing over adversity. Very well-written.
  • Black and White by Paul Volponi... I've been carrying this book around in my purse for a few weeks and I'm over half finished.  I don't know why I can't seem to push through to completion.
• What did you recently finish reading?
  •  The Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor... the first book in a very imaginative series that plays a twist on the Alice in Wonderland story. I listened to this on audiobooks.
  • The Ladies of Missalonghi by Collen McCullough...I love this little novella. This is my third time reading it and I enjoy it every time. A little historical love story set in Australia. Yum!
• What do you think you’ll read next?
  • Soldier Bear by Bibi Dumon Tak... winner of the 2012 Batchelor Award for books translated into English from another language, in this case Dutch. 
  • Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick...this will be my next audiobook.

 What about you?  What are you currently reading?

  1. I'm reading The Looking Glass Wars later this year for my book club. I'm glad to hear praise for it. I haven't read any of the books you've mentioned, though. Both Rotters and Breaking Night look pretty interesting, so I'll be looking forward to seeing your reviews!

  4. Sounds like you're doing a lot of reading, Anne!

    Looking Glass Wars has been on my TBR shelf for years now - Jamie loved it and said I must read it, but there are so many that he loves and recommends! I would like to get to this one...some day...

    I liked Hush, Hush - not my typical sort of book (not a big fan of the paranormal romance genre) but I thought it was well-written and engaging. Never did read the rest of the trilogy, though.

    Enjoy your books this week -

  5. I am so jealous that your reading is going well. I am on week 3 of virtually no reading whatsoever! This has to break, right?

    1. Helen, I feel your pain. When I go through a reading slump I often feel like I am slacking on the job or that I am letting someone down. Of the books I am currently working on all are for "assignments" of some sort. On Monday an English class and I will be video skyping with Paul Volponi, so I need to finish Black and White by then. Breaking Night is for my book group that meets on Wednesday. Rotters is my current audiobook that I listen to as I drive around town and to work and back. As the winner of the Odyssey Award it is my "assigned" book for that challenge. Have you hit a reader's block or has life got in the way of reading?
