W... W... W... Wednesdays ~ August 13, 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 am currently reading Pride, Prejudice and the Perfect Betby Marilyn Brant. I'm thoroughly enjoying this story! This is Jane and Bingley's story in this modern day Pride and Prejudice. It's a sequel to Pride, Prejudice and the Perfect Match (my review).

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! :)

What are you reading? I'd love to hear!


  1. I am still to read The Giver too. I didn't realise there was a film for it. I had better get reading too then! This is my first WWW!

    1. Hi Sarah! Yes! And the trailer for the film looks really good! Thanks for stopping by! I popped over to your blog too. :)

  2. You've got some nice variety here Candy! I like the sound of 'The Girl Who was Supposed to Die' particularly. I just finished a romance novella called 'Love Bites' which was a nice enough bit of fluff, and before that I read 'The Matters at Mansfield: The Crawford Affair' by Carrie Bebris, which I thought was really good. I'd like to read more in that series. Next up is probably 'Longbourn to London' by Linda Beutler. I would love to dive right in but I need to write up what I thought of the other two books first or I'll confuse myself and forget all the details!

    1. Hi Ceri! I know what you mean about getting confused! I get that way too!
      I have two of Carrie Bebris' mysteries and have never read them. :/ "Longbourn to London" looks really good! I'll probably read it sometime, but right now I have so many other books I want to read. :)

  3. I haven't read The Giver before, but I fully intend to. It's been everywhere recently because of the movie coming out! I hope you enjoy your books this week!

    1. Hi Chrissi! I know! I wanted to read it before the movie came out, but the time just flew by and I didn't get to it. Hopefully, I can get to it this weekend!
      Occasionally, I volunteer at the Scholastic Warehouse, which is where I was today, so needless to say I brought home more books to add to my ever growing TBR pile! The question is, will I ever get caught up??? lol! I don't think so.
