WWW Wednesday

Today is WWW Wednesday, hosted by Should be Reading. This is where we talk about what we are reading, what we have finished reading and what we hope to read soon.










  • What are you currently reading? I am actually reading a couple of things: Goldfinch by Donna Tartt and The Bird Box by KJ Steele. Goldfinch is a very long book (but very good) and I hope to finish it soon. The Bird Box is a recent acquisition from NetGalley. These two books are very heavy, so I felt like I needed something lighter to balance it out. So I am also reading Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. Since this book takes place in Paris and my husband and I are spending Thanksgiving in Paris (yay!!), I thought this was a great fit. I know, I know . . . three books at one time is a bit much. But there are just so many books I want to read. It's hard to limit myself to one at a time.

  • What will you read next? I have no idea because I have such ADD when it comes to books. I am thinking I will probably read Every Ugly Word by Aimee L. Salter.

Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving weekend! Like I said, my husband and I will be flying out to Paris. Our plane leaves this afternoon and we will be back on Sunday. The last time we were there was for our honeymoon a little over six years ago so I am very excited. I can't think of a better reading spot than in front of the Eiffel Tower.

    1. Thanks lipsyy! I was feeling hesitant about seeing The Maze Runner because the series is only so-so. I'm sure I will see it when it comes out on video though. :)

  2. Have a fantastic time in Paris! I still don't know how people juggle more than one book at a time, that skill is beyond me. Thanks for visiting my WWW https://cleopatralovesbooks.wordpress.com/2014/11/26/www-wednesday-november-26/

    1. Believe me, I wasn't always able to focus on more than one book at a time. It takes practice. :)

  4. I started The Goldfinch several months ago, and like you said, it is very long and heavy. I had to put it aside but I'm planning to get back to it after the holidays. I know it will be worth reading but I just need to make the time and DO it!

    1. Lisa, I have put the book down a couple of times as well. I just finished it (finally!) and will be posting my review later this week. It was very good, but I felt the ending was a bit anticlimactic.

    1. Thanks Candy! The Scorch Trials was my favorite of the series. The ending was a little so-so for me. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving too!

  7. Goldfinch is definitely on my horizon sometime this December. I'll be on the lookout for your review on that book. And Anna is the perfect balancer. Lol.

  8. I still haven't found time to read The Maze Runner books, although I would like to fairly soon, I enjoyed the movie. I've heard The Gold Finch is very good, another one on the list. I hope you enjoy your time in Paris - how wonderful! Here's my WWW: http://cataluna6.blogspot.com.au/2014/11/www-wednesday-261114.html
