What are you currently reading?

So many people have bragged up Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn that I’m listening to it on my commute.  I’m also reading Mothers and Sons by Colm Toibin, as it was listed as one of The End of Your Life Book Club picks, and I usually love reading about lives in Ireland.

What did you recently finish reading?

It was a long one, but I finally finished She’s Come Undone by Wally Lamb.  He’s usually always a weeper, and the story of Delores stayed true to his M.O.  I’d hope for more for the main character after all her personal tragedy, but I supposed the true lies in the fact that not everything turns out the way we wish.

What do you think you’ll read next?

My library hold for The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery hasn’t yet been delivered.  It’s our book club pick for April and is about two French characters who live in the same building and aren’t who they seem to be.

WWW Wednesdays (Mar.21)

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

• What are you currently reading?

I have finally started (and am almost three-fourths through) Into the Wild by Jon Krakuaer.  It is a fascinating, if not uncomfortable, story of a young man’s escapade that lead to his untimely death.  Worth checking out, though.  

• What did you recently finish reading?

Another one that’s been at the top of my “tbr” list for awhile now, but now I’ve finished, is Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood.  Even though I hate to make the comparison, I didn’t like it quite as much as Oryx & Crake.  Who knows, sometimes I change my mind after fully absorbing it later, and I’ll probably read MaddAddam #3 when it’s done.

• What do you think you’ll read next?

Since I have only my Kindle with me today and can’t finish “Into the Wild,” I’ll probably start “Veronika Decides to Die” by Paulo Coelho.  I just found out that it’s the second in a trilogy (what’s up with that?), so I hope it stands alone without having read the first one.
Maybe I will borrow “The Book Thief” on my Kindle soon since I keep bumping it’s #1 slot on my reading list.
Ever thankful to MizB at Should be Reading blog!
