WWW Wednesday: a Book Blog

What are you currently reading? What did you just recently finish reading? What do you think you'll read next?

Happy Wednesday!

I know, Friday is better, but we can take some of the sting out of it not being Friday by talking about books, right? I thought so. :)

WWW Wednesday

What are you currently reading?

I'm about three quarters of the way done with my re-read of "A Discovery of Witches." Have I mentioned at all how much I adore this book? I'm counting down the days until July, when book two will be released!

What did you just recently finish reading?

"Pride and Prescience" by Carrie Bebris 

What do you think you'll read next?

It'll either be "I Beat the Odds" by Michael Oher, "Suspense and Sensibility" by Carrie Bebris or "A Month of Summer" by Lisa Wingate. Or I may throw caution to the wind and choose something else! (I have to keep you guessing, after all.)

Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Aside from my afore-mentioned impatience for book two in Deborah Harkness's All Souls trilogy, I'm also looking forward to the latest from Jen Lancaster, "Jeneration X: One Reluctant Adult's Attempt to Unarrest Her Arrested Development; Or, Why It's Never Too Late for Her Dumb Ass to Learn Why Froot Loops Are Not for Dinner." Now that, my friends, is a title!

Your turn - what are your WWW Wednesday and Waiting on Wednesday reads?

On Austen, let me recommend 'Pride & Prejudice and Zombies'. It's a very funny sendup of Austen, zombie fiction, and the Asian martial arts genres.

I read the first two (three?) of the Outlander books and then I stopped. I think I was on Outlander overload. :) But that was several years ago - perhaps I should revisit them. I've heard many good things about Diana Gabaldon and I did enjoy the books the first time I read them. How many is she up to in the Outlander series now? I haven't really ever been a fan of Stephen King's, though I do want to read "Under the Dome." That's been on my to-read list for a while now!

Have you read "Under the Dome"? What did you think of that one?
Jenna Czaplewski March 29, 2012 at 06:08 PM
I have been so hesitant to read "Zombies"! Everyone and their great-grandmother tells me how good it is but I'm fearful that it's somehow disrespectful of Austen's work. Perhaps I need to just cave and read the book already! :)

Yes, I read Under the Dome year before last. It was okay -- not really as good as Duma Key or 11/22/63. Still worth the read. I don't know about 'disrespectful' to Austen. Is a good satire ever truly disrespectful? You need to love your source material to make it really funny. I think you need to cave in and read it. The scene with Elizabeth and Lady Catherine De Bourgh in the dojo is worth the price of admission.
