not a review

WWW Wednesday

I have been following many of the blogs that participate in WWW Wednesday and in a heavily caffeine-induced moment of organization I find myself with a nice WWW list.

WWW Wednesday is hosted every week by Taking On A World of Words and asks bloggers to answer three questions:

What are you currently reading?

What did you recently finish reading?

What do you think you will read next?

 

What am I currently reading?

I have already started The Boys in the Boat and William Wenton and the Impossible Puzzle.  I accidentally (but perhaps subconsciously on purpose) requested the “adapted for young readers” version of Boys on the Boat from the library.  Between that and young William, the puzzle addict, I plan to spend my week pretending I am an 8-11 year old boy.

What did I just finish reading?

RedQueen

 

In the wee hours of this morning I finished Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard. I purchased this book so long ago that the trilogy is finished! This was a great first book and I cannot wait to read the rest of the adventure.

 

 

 

What do I think I will read next?

On my immediate to be read list are: Serafina and the Black Cloak, The Number Devil and The Girl Who Could Fly.  I recently visited The Biltmore Estate in North Carolina and I am completely obsessed with the estate and anything Vanderbilt. So, when I heard that there was a book series set in basement of the magnificent Vanderbilt home I knew I would have to read it.

The Number Devil was recommended to me by a ten year old girl. She told me she loved math. I may have responded with something like, “Math is my childhood nemesis.” She recommended I read The Number Devil. We shall see if this mathematical adventure can overcome my disinterest / distrust of numbers.

The Girl Who Could Fly is billed as a, “…mix of Little House on the Prairie and X-Men…” I simply have to read it!

Do any of this books interest you? Have you read anything on my WWW list? My list is a little heavy on the children’s section selections this time so if you are looking for something different head over to Taking on a World of Words today. The comments are full of great blogs all answering these same questions!

  1. I just finished the new Laura Levine mystery called Murder had None Lives. Her cat Prozac is almost as annoying as our cat Piglet. I have also enjoyed the Jane Wheel mysteries set in Illinois. I would love to go to some of the amazing antique and estate sales Jane attends. Now I am signing on to my library web site and asking them to hold several of the books you described here. Thank you so much for the updates!

  2. I really loved Red Queen. It seems to get some mixed reviews but I thought it was really enjoyable. I hate to tell you this but it’s not a trilogy. I’ve finished book 3 and there’s still at least one more to come 🙂 The wait is killing me so probably wise to take your time.

    1. NOOOOO!!!!! I am so glad you told me! I hate when you think you are reaching the end of an epic story arch and there is (surprise) additional book! I really loved Red Queen and I was swayed for a long time some negative reviews. Thanks for reading!
