Each Wednesday at “Taking on a World of Words“, we are asked to answer the 3 Ws about our reading.
Here’s a glimpse of my current reading life, over the past week:

What are you currently reading?

Reading Chapter 8 this week of The Magic Words by Cheryl B. Klein for the FB book study.

I have started – Feversong by Karen Moning. It is a lengthy book and due back to the library within 2 weeks so I must forge ahead!

I hope to finish this week:
The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater

I haven’t read anything from these books although I am still determined to finish them:
Sixty by Ian Brown
GMC (Goal, Motivation and Conflict) by Debra Dixon

What have I read the past week?
Wish by Barbara O’Connor – A very touching MG novel – and I loved it!
A Thread So Thin by Marie Bostwick. I enjoyed although it did not grab me as much as the first. I still hope to read book 3.

I seemed to read a lot of ebooks this week – maybe because Feversong was intense and I was trying to finish the other books. Getting free books from Freebooksy, for one, means I always have a ready supply of ebooks to read – and I find some new writers to search out. Kris Pearson is one I found this week and thoroughly enjoyed.
Melting His Heart by Kris Pearson – a romance
A couple of fantasies as well:
Bear to Love by Amy Lamont
Claimed by Evangeline Anderson

What do you plan to read next?
Books still on my radar:
The Hobbit
On Writing by Stephen King
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood

 

Also Linking with
Modern Ms. Darcy’s Quick Lit
