{September 14, 2011}   WWW Wednesday for September 7th,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? “Welcome to the World, Baby Girl” by Fannie Flagg…She also wrote the book based on the movie, “Fried Green Tomatoes”, which I also own but haven’t read yet. So far I’m really liking this book and I must warn people that the book goes from one time period to the next back and forth so if that kind of things bothers you, then you probably wouldn’t like it. I, myself, do not mind it but I definitely have to pay close attention to the time periods as I read so as to not get confused.

What did you recently finish reading? “Tales for a Stormy Night” by Dorothy Salisbury Davis (This was an older book I got for either a dime or a quarter one year at our Annual Library Book Sale. The cover and the title seemed interesting and as I am a huge fan of Agatha Christie, I figured I would check out these short mystery stories. Some stories I liked and some were just so so. I’m not really sure why I didn’t LOVE it, it was just OK for me.

I also started and finished “Blessings” by Anna Quindlen. I really liked the male character in this book and was really rooting for him. I loved the way this story was told from two main character’s point of views and I also loved the way things developed, but I will say the only reason I just really liked instead of loving this book was because I wanted things to end differently than they did. I definitely recommend reading this and would love to hear what some of my blogging buddies think of it. 🙂

What do you think you’ll read next? “Relentless” by Dean Koontz…..because I haven’t read a book by him in too long and he is one of my fav. authors

N. Barnes says:

Oh, I hate it when books flip the story just when it is getting really, really good and you have to shift gears into another time period or to a different character, but love it at the same time. Right now I’m re-reading “true colors” by Kristin Hannah.

I’ve heard that name before but never read anything by her…What’s “True Colors” about? 🙂

N. Barnes says:

“True Colors” is about a family that gets ripped apart by tragedy, rivalry, secrets, and a “shocking crime” and the three sisters have to come together to save the homestead, a horse ranch in the Pacific NW, as well as mend their family relationships. It has been awhile since I read it the first time so I don’t remember all the details. My first reads usually go fast (when it’s good) then the second read is savored, read a few pages at a time so I can mull the story over in my mind. 😀 How do you enjoy yours?

I pretty much read every book about the same speed, but I tend to be a fast reader. I normally don’t go back and reread a book unless I really liked it or it has just been so long that I forgot parts of it and want to remember. 🙂

I am reading so many books that I cannot list them all.

You are on a reading roll then! 🙂

I want to know if you like that Flannie Flagg book. I loved Fried Green Tomatoes. The movie was great but the book was even better. Are you saying I should read Blessings?

LOL, if you want to, I would love to hear your thoughts on it. 🙂
My mother-in-law said the book is really good, too, so I guess I will need to read it sometime. I own it but simply haven’t taken the time to do so.

Fantastic job Sharon… keep those readings coming. I am impressed. 🙂
I’m finally catching up on everyone’s blog. Thank you for your patience! 🙂
