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

www_wednesdays4Here is today's Book Meme from http://shouldbereading.wordpress.com

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?

My answers:

What are you currently reading?
Insurgent, by Veronica Roth. This is the sequel to the popular Divergent (the film based on that one is in the theaters now, but I haven't seen it yet). More dystopian science fiction for teens. Like the first book in the trilogy, it's a real page-turner, keeping me up way too late at night.

What did you recently finish reading?
I was about to say Divergent, but I realize I did quickly read another book after I completed Divergent and before I began Insurgent. It's a historical novel set in Philadelphia and called Fever 1793, by Laurie Halse Anderson, a harrowing story about a real-life epidemic.

What do you think you'll read next?
Hmmmm. That depends on when I finish this one. I have to read Amy Chua's Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother for my book club, so that one might be next. But I have more than two weeks between now and the date when I have to have finished it. So I may slip in one more book before I read that one. I'm considering a Holocaust novel called Izzy's Fire, by a friend of mine, Nancy Wright Beasley.
