W…W…W…Wednesday

It’s still Wednesday, right? Luckily, I still have time to play a little book game. 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?

What are you currently reading? I’m having trouble getting into Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple. I don’t think it’s the fault of the book. I just think I’m too tired to pay close attention. I do like the smart, funny style of the writing as well as the modern-day mania inherent in the story-line. About 1/3 of the way done. Plus, I’m still Listening to The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown. Will this book never end? I alternate between really liking the sisters and the writing style and despairing over the bad narration and self-aware overkill of some of the passages. On the last disk so I should finish tomorrow.

What did you recently finish reading? Posted a review of Jess Walter’s Beautiful Ruins yesterday, but I will repeat that I loved it. It’s a book which you can totally judge by its cover (also intoxicating). Also read In the Shadow of the Banyan this week. This is a worthy read about a young girl’s trauma in Cambodia. (That doesn’t sound very enticing, I know, but it’s a good read.)

What do you think you’ll read next? It’s a complete mystery to me (which never happens.) I have a title from Jonathan Tropper sitting on my shelf, along with Bent Road, which has gotten good reviews. I also really want to read The Forgetting Tree. I’ll have to see what strikes my fancy…that is if I ever have time to read again.

What are your W…W…W… titles?

  1. My mom just go back from a long stay in Ireland. She brought me several books (yay!), so I’ve dropped everything else in order to read them.

    Recently finished: A Carol for the Dead by Patrick Dunne and Wild Irish Women by Marian Broderick.

    Currently Reading: Queen of the Wits A Life of Laetitia Pilkington by Norma Clarke.

      • Shaw is my all-time favourite writer. He’s actually the reason I became a writer. I’ve read these three plays before, but never in this edition. Even though I have been a Shaw devotee since I was eleven, I still love reading his work. So, yes, you should definitely read some Shaw. He was much more than the originator of Eliza Doolittle.

I'd love to hear what you think.
