W... W... W... Wednesdays

August 27th, 2014 (09:56 pm)


It's Wednesday, and that means it's time for the Wednesday meme from the ShouldBeReading website.

Here is how it works. To play along, you just answer the following three questions…
• What are you currently reading?
• What did you recently finish reading?
• What do you think you’ll read next?


Post the answers on your blog and send a link in a comment to today's post on the ShouldBeReading site. Or, if you don't have a blog, just post your answers directly in the comments box there.




And here are my answers:

Tarshis - I survived the Japanese tsunami, 2011
• What are you currently reading?

I Survived the Japanese Tsunami, 2011
by Lauren Tarshis
I'm cheating on this one a little. I finished this book (actually started it, too) this afternoon. But because it was a quick read, and because I haven't started reading another biook yet, I'm counting this as my current read. It's part of Lauren Tarshis's series of books about fictional kids who survive actual disasters and other perils. I read this one because my son just did. I've read several other books in this series, and I was curious about how Tarshis would handle this particular disaster. It's very well done! I'd recommend this series for kids (especially boys) in third through sixth grade who like reading about dangerous situations.

• What did you recently finish reading?

The Mermaid Chair
by Sue Monk Kidd

This bestselling novel is the story of Jessie, a married artist and mother of a college student. When Jessie's mom deliberately cuts off her own finger, Jessie travels back to the South Carolina barrier island where she grew up so she can take care of her mother -- and search her soul to figure out why her supposedly happy marriage is no longer making her happy, and how to finally come to grips with the tragedy that has haunted her since childhood. Then she meets Brother Thomas, a monk who is struggling with his own grief as he tries to decide whether to take his final vows and commit to the monastery. Their mutual attraction shocks both of them, and both have to decide what really matters to them.

Moore - The Lonely Passion of Judith Hearne
• What do you think you’ll read next?

I'm not really sure. One of the books I'm considering:

The Lonely Passion of Judith Hearne
by Brian Moore

This one gets wonderful reviews, but I've never read it. It's about an unmarried middle-aged Irishwoman who is an alcoholic.
