W.W.W. Wednesdays is a weekly event brought to you by MizB from Should Be Reading. To play along, answer the following questions:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you are going to read next?

So, lets set off, shall we?
What have I been reading? I’ve just started reading ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ by John Green.

It sat on my to-read list for ages, before I managed to lay my hands on it. Or rather, had it downloaded on my Kindle. It might have stayed there for a while, had I not managed to run out of real books completely yesterday. Blessing in disguise it was, when I saw that ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ was just sat there, waiting to be read. I’ve found it interesting so far, but I’ve just started. Going by reviews of some dear friends, I’m sure I will enjoy the read.

What did I recently finish reading? The Weight of Silence by Rebecca GudenKauf.

It sounded like an interesting book to begin with. It was an interesting book as it started off. Two seven year old girls go missing. These two are the closest of friends. One of the is selectively mute. Traumatised by a horrible incident when she was younger. One day, both of them are missing, the parents distraught and the police wondering if there is a link to another girl who disappeared some time ago, a fact that the parents don’t even want to think about. The premise held promise and I was hooked. However somewhere down the line, it fizzled out. And for some reason, I had an inkling of how things would end. And the possible suspect. It was an alright read, but nothing to write home about.

What would I be reading next? Possibly the next in the Rose Gardner series. I picked up Twenty Eight and a Half Wishes on the Kindle, just because it was cheap. I know, appalling, my criteria for picking up books! But I found it surprisingly fun. So I’ve gone and ordered the whole box set.

It’s waiting to be read, so quite possibly the next in the Rose Gardner series might be what I pick up, unless I end up straying into the library at lunch time. Which is just not happening these days, by the way. I need to take some time off and go hunting for books 🙂

So that was me. So what have you guys been reading?

  1. I have been meaning to read ‘The Fault in Our Stars’. A lot of my friends have been raving about it. Will wait to know how you find it 🙂

    I’m reading ‘A Newlywed’s Adventures in Married Land’, as you know. Its keeping me good company and I am even able to relate to it as an expat who’s getting to know the place she has just moved in to 🙂

  2. I tried reading The Fault In Our Stars some time back, but the time was just not right. I couldn’t get into the book at all, though I read more than a few chapters. That said, I’ve heard so many good things about the book that I feel like I should give it a try again, some time.

    Twenty Eight And A Half Wishes sounds quite interesting. Will look up the storyline. 🙂

    I just finished reading The School of Essential Ingredients, and loved the book. Loved the language, the character development, and the description of food in it. 🙂 Can’t figure out what to read next, so currently not reading anything. I actually need something to read now – any suggestions?
