W... W... W... Wednesdays ~ Sept. 3, 2014

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 am I currently reading? I'm currently reading The Persuasion of Miss Jane Austen by Shannon Winslow. Ooh! I can't wait to see how this is going to turn out! This line really entices me: "A Novel wherein she tells her own story of lost love, second chances, and finding her happy ending." I would love to see Jane's story turnout differently ...and that she would find love! 

What did I recently finish reading? I finished reading The Giver by Lois Lowry. I really enjoyed this story. It did leave me with questions though, and I thought the ending was open to interpretations. Anyone else?

I also read Some Boys by Patty Blount. It was really good! When Grace is raped by the star of the lacrosse team at a party, nobody believes her. It's her word against his. Everyone thinks she's lying, even her best friends turn on her. Grace is a strong girl, amazing really. Even though, I did have a few issues with the story, I still thought it was a great read!  

What do I think I'll read next? I'm not sure...

What are you reading? 


  1. I've been wondering about The Giver. I had never heard of it til pretty recently, when I saw people tweeting about some changes made for the movie version (which they were not happy about). Shannon Winslow's new book looks really good, too.

    I am *still* working my way thru House of Aegea. It's never taken me this long to read a book before; kind of a unique experience. It'a good and I like it, but for some reason I can only read like 30 pgs at a time before I need to put it down again. I don't know. I just re-read Abigail Reynolds' Without Reserve and it was as lovely as I remember. Next I want to read Joy Dawn King's A Father's Sins and Sarah Johnson's Chosen vol 1. Sarah has a story coming out soon that I like very much called Just to Hear I Love You - about a deaf Mary & Colonel Fitzwilliam (just a head's up if you like that sort of thing). ;) I also still need to read Emma.

    1. Hi Monica! Oh, it's been a busy day! I'm finally able to reply! Since school started I've been crazy busy. I hope I can manage to find time to work on that Shakespeare course we are signed up for!

      Interesting about the Giver movie. I want to go see it, and now I'm curious about the changes. I hadn't heard about the book until my daughter wanted it last March or so. Then I found out it was going to be made into a movie. Did you know it was published in 1993?!

      Oh wow! "Just to Hear I Love" you sounds interesting! ....Wait, you haven't read Emma! Lol! You better get after that! ;)
      A re-read of one of Abigail's book sounds nice!

  2. I cannot wait to read The Persuasion of Miss Jane Austen! Right now I am reading His Uncle's Favorite by Lory Lilian.

    1. Hi Kelly! How do you like His Uncle's Favorite? I loved it! Lord Matlock was a quirky old gentleman! So funny!
      I hope you get to read The Persuasion of Miss Jane Austen soon!

    2. I loved Lord Matlock in His uncle's favourite too! I am so jealous I really want to read The Persuasion of Miss Jane Austen! I have been struggling with reading time :( But I have just finished Hope & Sensibility By Dixon and am now reading Pride & Persistence By Ellsworth. Happy reading :)

    3. I'm really enjoying His Uncle's Favorite. Lord Matlock is great!!:)

    4. Hey Tamara! My summer is over and it seems like my reading time has gone with it! :( Hopefully, after we get into the swing of things, my reading will pick back up. I hope you enjoy Pride and Persistence!
