WWW Wednesday... July 20

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?

Currently Reading: Where She Went by Gayle Forman. This is the second book in the series, If I Stay, and the book picks up the action three years after the end of the last book. So far it is from Adam's point-of-view. I loved the first book so I am looking forward to this one.

 Currently Listening to: Room by Emma Donoghue. Surprisingly compelling and thoughtful book about a your boy whose mother bore him while she was being held captive in a room. My whole family listened to this on a road trip home from Boise this week.  Since we didn't finish before we got home, we now will take turns listening to the conclusion. In the meantime, we are all guessing what we think will happen at the end.

 Recently finished: Can't Wait to Get to Heaven by Fannie Flagg. Flagg, the author of Fried Green Tomatoes, has created another funny, quirky book here about a woman who has a life after death experience then returns to earth to tell about it. A fun, mindless read that would be good for a vacation book. I give it two thumbs up!

What I hope to start soon: Beauty Queens by Libba Bray. Count me as a Libba Bray devotee. I just picked up the audiobook of Beauty Queens today from the library. I'm itching to get started.


  1. Currently reading: An Impartial Witness by Charles Todd
    Just finished: Buried Prey by John Sandford
    What I'll read next: Possibly Room

  2. Kristan just finished Where She Went and loved it! We all want to read Room, too.

  3. I keep on meaning to read 'The Room' but was afraid of the subject matter. I did pick up Jaycee Dugard's memoir 'A Stolen Life' but not sure if I'll actually read it either (just wanted to support her)

    Here's my WWW Wednesdays (July 20) post!

  4. I love Fannie Flagg's books, especially Fried Green Tomatoes.
    Here's my W...W...W...

  5. I knew Flagg had written another book (with a red mailbox on the cover?) but this one looks entirely different!

  6. Thank you for stopping by my blog. I am following your blog now. Its very good.

    Anyway, I am on the waiting list for Room at my library so I will have to come back to read your review for it. I can't decide if I want to read Beauty Queens or not. It seems to be very popular right now but I'm not sure if it is my style.

    Thanks again and happy reading
