W...W...W...Wednesdays for April 30th 2014

Well, this seemed like a great way to resurrect my poor book blog. I can't believe it has been so long since I have posted over here. I guess one of the problems is I haven't been reading much new material lately. I know it is pathetic, but I keep going back to book series I have read and love. I am hoping by posting about the books I am reading and participating in memes I will find some other great books to read so I won't be tempted by the same old, same old. 

So to start this off, here is how you play along with W...W... W... Wednesdays, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading:

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 am I currently reading?

I am reviewing The Dancing Master by Julie Klassen. This is the second book I have read by this author, though I am having a harder time getting into the story.

I found the book Wake Up Missing by Kate Messner at the library while the children were enjoying Story Hour last Saturday. This is a young adult suspense book which has an interesting plot. 

What did I recently finish reading?

A couple of weeks ago I picked up the book Distortion by Terri Blackstock at the library (again, during Story Hour). I was thrilled to see the second book in her Moonlighters Series had come out. I wasn't sure what to expect, but having another murder occur within the same circle of family/friends was a bit of a surprise. I figured it would have the same characters as they were the ones who had been moonlighting as P.I.s, but it threw me for a loop to see they were so personally involved again. 

I also finished Divergent by Veronica Roth. I am not sure why I waited so long to read this series, I guess it felt like it was going to be too similar to the Hunger Games trilogy and sounded a bit weird. I am glad I finally read Divergent though. It was a great read and I had a really hard time putting this one down. The idea of the different factions intrigued me to an extent, though seemed a bit confusing as well. There was a quite a bit of violence though. I am not in a hurry to reread the book, but I am on pins and needles waiting for the library to get Insurgent in for me. Every copy they have is out right now, and this is a huge interlibrary loan system I am talking about. 

What do I think I will read next?

Well, I would love for it to be Insurgent, but I don't foresee the library getting it in anytime soon as I have no clue where I am in the queue. So, while I am waiting I have a bunch of books out from another new-to-me author, Ted Dekker.
