WWW Wednesday: October 5th

www

WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted by Taking On A World Of Words where bloggers answer three simple questions regarding their week in reading.

WHAT AM I CURRENTLY READING?

16060716Guys, you’ll never believe it. BUT I FINISHED THE DIVINERS. Finally! It only took me literally half the year to get through. So, what did I do immediately after finishing? Of course, I started the sequel. Here’s to hoping that Lair of Dreams takes me a little less time than six months to finish. I’m suddenly starting to feel like I’m a glutton for punishment, but who’s really paying attention to that? But, I really couldn’t help myself, even for as long as it took me to read the first book, I really loved all of the characters and couldn’t stop myself from needing to know what happened next.

6260997This was originally the Our Shared Shelf book club pick for September, but I ended up starting it a bit later in the month than I originally planned, so I’m still chugging along through it. This book is both devastatingly heartbreaking and educational. I’m actually having a bit of a difficult time getting through the book mostly because the topic makes me angry and so sad at the same time. The stories of these women are so touching and so horrifying that it is hard to sit still and continue reading when all I want to do now is travel to the Congo and volunteer in a hospital or donating all of my money so that young girls can get an education.

22918050The audiobook binge with my assistant continues! We devourer the first three books of The Selection with very girlish glee and took no time starting the fourth. We were somewhat surprised, though pleasantly to find out that the fourth book takes a time jump and is now about The Selection in reverse and revolves around American and Maxon’s eldest daughter. Like I told me assistant, we got The Bachelor, now it’s time to watch The Bachelorette. My only fear is the faster we get through this series the less of it there is to listen to and we don’t know which series we should start next.

15771083I recently downloaded A Monster Calls and then, like fate, it ends up being the October book club pick for the ThatOneReader Book Club. This seems to always happen to me, I download a book and then it gets picked for a book club read. Now, also most of the time I don’t have time to read it at the point in time. But, I give myself an A for effort.  So far I’m really loving this story though, so I think I may actually shock myself by finishing a book club read book long before the end of the month and the though of that makes me pretty happy.

WHAT HAVE I RECENTLY FINISHED?

17878931 18635016 15823425 17162 23299512 7728889 29056083 16248068 18244970

Well, I consider my book slump’s ass officially kicked. Woo! Go me!

WHAT WILL I READ NEXT?

28110143Futhermore is one of those books where I’ve had it for a little bit now sitting on my large (and growing) TBR table and everyone is talking about it. While I attempt to have a little self control and read something I’ve had for longer first, all this talk is making me curious. I’ve been avoiding reading too in depth into what everyone has been talking about as to not ruin my own opinion while reading, but it’s starting to get to the point that everywhere I look some else is reviewing it. So to keep my anxiety down and from having to rapidly click out of another screen for fear of ruining the book. I’ll just have to read it next.
