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. 


  1. I just finished the Divergent series a couple of weeks ago. Loved it! I just finished The Hunger Games today, and will start on Catching Fire next. :) Happy Reading!

  2. I have that Julie Klassen book on my "to read" list, but I'm not sure how soon I'll get to it. Several of my friends have recommended Ted Dekker to me, but I haven't read any of his books yet.

  3. The colour books look interesting...


Thank you so much for stopping by. If you have the time, I would appreciate it if you leave a comment. Have a blessed day!
