I’d love to know what everyone is reading.  To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…(or post a link to your blog.)

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

Among the MissingWhat are you currently reading? I am a big fan of Dan Chaon’s full-length novels so his short story collection, Among the Missing,  has been on my TBR for a very long time. Found it on the shelf and the library last week and I’m so glad I did. Half-way through and savoring ever word. Chaon has a great talent for getting inside our insecurities and bringing them to life in situations so real, I feel like I’m deep in each story. He’s just a terrific writer.

Prayers for the StolenWhat did you recently finish reading? This weekend I finished Prayers for the Stolen by Jennifer Clement. I posted a review yesterday so I won’t repeat all my opinions here. I should add though, that I can’t get some of the images Clement created out of my mind. I don’t read much about Mexico, especially considering my heritage, but this is inspiring me to learn more and investigate what other authors are out there writing about what’s going on in that country right now.

 

We Are Called to RiseWhat do you think you’ll read next? I received an email that We Are Called to Rise is waiting for me at the local library so I’ll go pick that up today. Very excited to read this title, which could lead to great disappointment, but I’m hoping great reading instead.

which has gotten under my skin so I’m hoping to get into that soon.

How about you?

What are your W…W…W… titles?

  1. Was reading Spirit Me Away (See the review here: http://wp.me/p2eb7U-Jv) and really enjoyed Lazaar’s fresh take on the sixties.
    Am currently reading (and being blown away by) Necromancer’s Awakening by Nat Russo. Review to be posted next week.
    Next up? I’m not sure yet, though there are several in the offing. I have to check my list, if I can figure out where I put it…

  2. Currently reading The Accident by Chris Pavone and I’m hopelessly addicted. I don’t even know where I am half the time I’m reading. I just finished The Quick by Lauren Owen and I need to put my review up soon! And I will probably either read Night Film or Outlander next. My sister’s been burning through the Outlander series the past few days and she’s been affecting a Scottish accent ever since – I can’t decide if this is swaying me away from starting that next or making me want to read it more…
