{June 1, 2011}   WWW Wednesday

To 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?

What are you currently reading? To be honest with this answer, I would have to say nothing because I started a book this morning and finished it…..so I haven’t started on the next one yet!

What did you recently finish reading? “Horns” by Joe Hill……and I started “Run for your life” by James Patterson & Michael Ledwidge…earlier this morning and read it in one sitting…it was going to be my current read but now it’s added to my list of most recent reads!

What do you think you’ll read next? Probably either today or tomorrow, I will start on “Strange Candy” by Laurell K. Hamilton and after that, I may read “Relentless” by Dean Koontz….just trying to fill up the time until “Hit List” comes out on June 7th 🙂 which is next Tuesday!

So…What are you currently reading or have read lately? What book or books are you waiting patiently or impatiently to read? 🙂

It’s not too late to join a reading challenge…how many books do you dare to challenge yourself to read throughout the rest of 2011? I have challenged myself to 50 back when I started in late February and I’ve made it through 19 so far! If you’re interested in joining me, click on the reading challenge link on the right side of my blog…even if you’re not, you can still become a member of Goodreads! It’s free and fun! 🙂

If you have kids who love to read OR you just want to inspire them to do so, I highly recommend this SITE started by James Patterson called Read Kiddo Read! which is dedicated to making kids readers for life! You can also find their fan page on Facebook. 🙂 ENJOY!

How was Horns by Joe Hill? I’m also planning to read a Joe Hill book soon, and I’ve already got his short story collection. But I’m thinking of getting more of his books…

Here’s my WWW Wednesdays (June 1) post!



It was pretty good….my favorite so far by him is Heart Shaped Box, though…..He also has a short stories book called 20th Century Ghosts which was good. 🙂
Thanks for stopping by my blog!



Oops…My mind was obviously reading things wrong…I didn’t register that you said you already got his short story collection! DEFINITELY give Heart Shaped Box a read, I personally think it’s his best….other than that, the only books I know he has are comic novels called Locke and Key which I have never seen or had the chance to read



The Hook says:

1: Your awesome blog!
2: The Twilight series (At the urging of my wife!)]
3: Comic book, lots and lots of them!



1. Where? What awesome blog do you refer to?
2. LOL, Poor Hook suffers for love of his wife, huh? Give the series a chance…the books aren’t so bad…I personally am not a huge fan of the movies though…
3. I have what I think are comic books 6,7,and 8 in the Anita Blake: vampire hunter series….I want to read them but I kind of want to start at the beginning so I need to try to hunt down the first 5…I don’t think we HAVE a comic book store where I live :O….I bought the ones I got from hastings in a city 30 minutes from here…We don’t even have a Hastings here….and our ONE book store, barnes and noble closed months ago 😦

I love your blog
I am reading The Cause and A Bend in the road at the same time.
My next book will be a Nicholas Sparks book probably A Walk to remember. Not sure yet



You know, I have honestly never read any Nicholas Sparks books but I love his movies, especially The Notebook. A Walk to remember was so sad. 😦



Marilyn says:

Great questions:
Currently reading: The Dressmaker of Khair Khan
What did I just finish: Man in the White Sharkskin Suit
What do I think I’ll read next: Apart – story about Bangladeshi Muslims in the UK. Looks interesting. Great post



WOW….Those sound like some “serious” books, meaning very real, informative and enlightening. I seem to be more drawn to fictional stories where I can escape from reality. Maybe I need to add more “Serious” non fiction books to my reading!



This is my brand new WWW Wednesdays update:
http://perfectingmotherhood.wordpress.com/2011/06/01/www-wednesdays-new-weekly-theme-for-perfecting-motherhood/

Thanks for the link to the James Patterson’s site. I’ve read about it before but completely forgot about it.

By the way, what’s the best James Patterson book to read? I’ve seen some movies from his books but haven’t read any books yet. Any recommendations?



I saw you joined up on the theme and I’m so glad! 🙂
I look forward to seeing what you’re reading all the time! I found the readkiddoread.com at the back of the book I just finished reading by James Patterson and I immediately thought of you and other momma’s out there who want their kids to have a love for reading so I figured I would share! I love the little mission statement on the front page of the site…such a great idea he had!

As far as James Patterson books…I’m not exactly an expert…I would say I have read maybe 5-6 total of his books….not because i don’t like them because I DO but because I have so many other authors that I try to collect everything they have ever written and I had heard about him, I heard he was good but I didn’t want to get caught up in another author…..especially one with so many books like him…..BUT I was suggested a book years and years ago by him that was totally different from anything else in his repertoire…It was called “Suzanne’s Diary for Nicholas”…..so beautifully written and so moving of a book…..I couldn’t put that one down either. Definitely a tissue grabber book, though!
After that book, I didn’t really try anything else by him and then I got a book or two of his over the years from the library sales and read a couple and each one of them, I have really liked, if not loved. The last one I read was apparently book 2 in a series(although you don’t have to read them in order cause I hadn’t read #1) and I bought it for .75 at the library sale…..In the 2nd one, he’s a detective who has 10 adopted kids, the wife recently died so he has an Irish nanny….I loved the parts with the kids and you probably would to….other than that, it was basically one of those Whodunnit? Detective kind of tales but very well written, at least in my opinion. He’s just a great writer! Anything by him probably wouldn’t be a mistake to read!



Do you have the titles for the last 2 books?



They are by James Patterson & Michael Ledwidge together……the 1st book is Step on a crack, then the 2nd(the one I read) is Run for your life……3rd-Worst Case, 4th-Tick Tock and the 5th in the series comes out June 27th and is called “Now you see her”
I’ve only read the 2nd one….I need to read the others now, I guess 🙂



Actually I just read about the one I said was the 5th one…and it sounds like it’s a stand alone book and not part of that series….even though the same 2 writers collaborate on it…So sorry about that……it does look interesting though!

I like to read multiple books at once and that way, I won’t feel the pressure of falling behind… Of course I end up taking longer to finish a book unless I decide to wrap up one book and set the others aside… Reading is such a blessing… keeps our minds occupied and out of trouble. 🙂



I’m not very good at reading more than one book unless they are short story books or daily readings, etc. If I read two novels at once, it will confuse me. Reading IS wonderful, though! 🙂



That’s a great challenge! I am so bad at reading only online ~ news, blogs, emails. I have all the time, and don’t take the time to leisurely read nearly as much as I should.



Since I just have a desktop…I don’t like reading for LONG periods of time online…the computer chair is just not comfy enough for that! IF I had a laptop…I would be in trouble, I would be hooked to the Internet forever! AAAHHH!
There’s just something about laying back and reading an actual book…smelling the paper and holding it in your hands.
