WWW Wednesdays—August 3, 2011

WWW WednesdaysTo play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you’ll read next?

I’m currently reading [amazon_link id=”0451531388″ target=”_blank” ]A Room With a View[/amazon_link] by E. M. Forster. It’s not much like anything I’ve ever read before. The characters are perhaps the most realistic characters of any books I’ve read recently. I’m liking it.

I recently finished [amazon_link id=”1402241372″ target=”_blank” ]The Winter Sea[/amazon_link] by Susanna Kearsley (review). I enjoyed it. A nice book to finish my summer on. Our new school year starts on the 15th, but I came in this week to prepare some technology training materials for faculty. I expect my reading will slow down, now.

The next book I will probably read is [amazon_link id=”0061579289″ target=”_blank” ]Adam & Eve[/amazon_link] by Sena Jeter Naslund. I have to admit I’m nervous about it. I agreed to read it for a book blog tour, but it has pretty low ratings, and most of the reviews read something along the lines of “What was she thinking?” and “I loved [amazon_link id=”B000FC10KC” target=”_blank” ]Ahab’s Wife[/amazon_link], but what is this?” I actually really loved Ahab’s Wife (review). We’ll see.

  1. I am currently reading "Vittorio the Vampire" by Anne Rice.

    A few days ago I finished reading "Lord of the Flies".

    Next, I think I'll read "Twilight", (I know, I am giving in to curiosity and seem to be on a vampire kick).

    1. I read Vittorio the Vampire. I like her books about Lestat and his crowd better. I thought Anne Rice was off in her description of that book, which she was was like Romeo and Juliet with vampires. It's not. Lord of the Flies is such a great book. I really like that one. You know, Twilight is not well written, and Bella can be kind of grating, but I honestly enjoyed the books (until the last one). Stephenie Meyer does know how to write a page-turner, I'll give her that. Anne Rice said this about Meyer, and I agree: it was awfully smart of her to take the whole vampire deal and set it in a high school.
