TheRealSharon's Blog

{August 3, 2011}   WWW Wednesday for August 3rd,2011

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? “Dragon Spell” by Donita K. Paul, which is a Review book….I will be doing a review on my blog as soon as I finish. For those interested, you’re welcome to read. If not, skip over the review. I’m required to post a review on my blog as well as a book site and the publishing company’s site, so if you’re not interested in reading the reviews, it won’t hurt my feelings.

What did you recently finish reading? “Rebecca” by Daphne Du Maurier….great book! I just felt like I was reading a work of art. I think it’s considered a gothic novel but I’m calling that only because the location is this old mansion described to sound very old fashioned and it’s early 1900’s which is what I have always thought of as a gothic novel, but I admit that I could be wrong in that deduction.

I also finished “Loud and Clear” by Anna Quindlen and I really, really enjoyed it. It was a collection of different columns she had written and speeches she had done over the years. She’s such a great writer.

What do you think you’ll read next? No clue…I will have to see whatever calls me next! 🙂

Happy Birthday to my wonderful Mom! I love you!

Visit my WWW Wednesdays and guess which book you should read next (I promise you, you’ll love it).

Happy birthday to your mom!

Thanks for the birthday wishes for my mom! And I will be checking out your WWW Wednesdays post shortly!

Happy Birthday Sharon’s Mom!!!!

I’m not reading anything at the moment. For whatever reason, I have not been able to finish a book in weeks. I start them . . . I just can’t finish them.

However, the book I have been waiting months for came out yesterday! I need to hit up a book store asap! Retribution by Sherilyn Kenyon.

I just looked up Anna Quindlen . . . I’m interested in checking out her work 🙂

Thank you very much for the Happy Birthday to my mom! 🙂
I have never read anything by Sherilyn Kenyon but I have heard her name mentioned before…What kind of books does she write?
As for Anna Quindlen, I think you would enjoy her writing. In her “Loud and Clear” book, there were more liberal views brought up but the way she expressed them, I didn’t automatically scrunch up my nose and go, “Well, I don’t agree with that!”…..I really read her thoughts and she made really good points, which in turn, really had me thinking about several things so kudos to a writer who can make me feel like that.

Kudos and Happy Birthday wishes to your mom.
Best wishes,

Thanks for the birthday wishes! 🙂

Cool, did you ever finish reading “Please Stop Laughing at Me”? I finished that a few days ago and was really moved by her incredible story of bullying. She’s such an amazing woman though she was treated like dirt and endured so much unbelievable cruelty in school.

Yes, I did, it was a great book!
I forget what week I finished it in but I talked a little bit about it in that week’s WWW Wednesday post. There were some differences in her story but I could relate so much to the way other adults reacted towards the bullying. Many adults tell you to just ignore it or toughen up and it’s always bothered me because it was never that easy. I hope lots of adults read that book and if they ever have a kid who is being bullied, maybe they will understand better how to deal with it instead of jumping to the conclusion that their kid has problems or that they are doing something to cause it. People also need to realize that it ISN’T a normal part of growing up for kids to bully others.

Yeah, it shouldn’t be seen as a normal thing or “kids just being kids”. That book is one of my favorites now and I wish I could meet the author and give her a big hug for all her struggles. It makes me want to help combat bullying too. I’m going to read her sequel too, “Please Stop Laughing At Us”, which is supposed to share what she’s done as an activist to help put a stop to bullying. Should be inspiring!
