W... W... W... Wednesdays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB of Should be Reading. To play along, just answer the following questions:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you'll read next?
What did I recently finish reading? Well, I haven't posted a WWW post for the last two weeks, so I have a few books that I finished. Three of the books were part audio books and I listen to them while driving and read them while I wasn't. That whisper-sync is pretty awesome! Here's what I read:
Jane Austen's First Love by Syrie James. It's wonderful book about a fifteen-year-old Jane Austen. My review will be up on Friday.
Monument 14 by Emmy Laybourne. This apocalyptic story was pretty good. It's about a group of kids who are on the way to school when a horrific storm hits and they have to seek shelter in a Greenway store (which is like a big box store with everything in it). I was surprised at the wide range of ages of the kids in this story. From five to seventeen-years-old. I didn't think I would read the next book in the series, but it got really good and then it had a major cliffhanger!! So, you got it... my next read was:
Monument 14: Sky on Fire by Emmy Laybourne. This book was really good! More action! I think the first book was more of a setup, explaining what's going on and why. Now, this second book is "the escape". There is a third book, but this one has a good ending. By that, I mean it felt finished. Complete. I do want to read the third because I like these kids and I want to hear more. Plus, there are a couple of loose ends.
The Girl Who Was Supposed to Die by April Henry. This was kinda intense! I really enjoyed it too! Not my typical read, but I do like survival stories. This YA story is about a girl who wakes up on the floor of a cabin in the woods. She has no idea who she is or what's going on, but she knows she's in danger, and she can hear two men talking about getting rid of her. When she escapes, she has to figure out who she is and why someone is trying to kill her! It's a fast-paced thriller.
The last three were the audiobooks.
What do I think I'll read next? I kinda want to read The Giver by Lois Lowry since the movie will be out this Friday! :)
