WWW Wednesday

Books are delightful society. If you go into a room and find it full of books - even without taking them from the shelves they seem to speak to you, to bid you welcome. ~William Ewart Gladstone

Because I have nothing new to report (Hey, guess what? Snow here today!), I give you via Should Be Reading (and discovered on Charity Tahmaseb's blog), WWW Wednesday:

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?

Here's mine...

Currently Reading:

"Darkwood Manor" by Jenna Ryan

I bought this book based solely on the blurb and the fact that it's in the "Shivers" line. So far, I'm not shivering, but I have hopes...

"Eat Right for Life: How Healthy Foods Can Keep You Living Longer, Stronger and Disease-Free" by Dr. Raymond A. Schep and Nicole Kellar-Munoz

This book is slow going. It is packed with information but reads much like a text book. I'm slowly making my way through, but it's not an easy task.

"Trust Me on This" by Jennifer Crusie

I checked this out on eBook from my library, and have to finish it first. We get eBooks for 2 weeks, period. No renewals. Oy. Normally that isn't a problem, but I have a pile of books to read.

This is a re-release of Ms. Crusie's that I've never read. I really enjoy her older stuff, and this book (while not as funny as, say "Getting Rid of Bradley") is a nice break from life when I need it.

What did you recently finish reading?

"In Too Deep" by Jayne Anne Krentz

I've been DYING to see Fallon get his HEA, so pounced on this sucker the moment I could. Ms. Krentz matched Fallon up perfectly, but while the romance was fabulous I wasn't as enthralled with the mystery portion of the story. Still, I admit, I mostly read it just to see Fallon be happy. :-)

What do you think you’ll read next?

I have "Hungry for You" by Lynsay Sands on my Nook, calling to me... I also have several of Jude Deveraux's books from the library that I may or may not get to. My reading time is greatly decreased any more.

What about you?


You Should Be an Actor

You are a flexible and even changeable person. You are constantly evolving.

You are a highly observant chameleon. You have always been good at imitating others when you need to.

You are artistic and charming. You have an air of sophistication about you.

You are dramatic and very expressive. You feel strongly about almost everything.

The first part is wrong, but the rest is *mostly* right.

Currently Reading:
Polished Off by Lila Dare, the second book in the Southern Beauty Shop mystery. So far I'm liking it.

Recently Finished:
You Dropped a Blonde On Me by Dakota Cassidy, the first book in the new “Ex Trophy Wives” contemporary romance series and I totally enjoyed it. It's a fun read.

Reading Next:
Curiosity Thrilled the Cat by Sofie Kelly, OR To Have and to Kill by Mary Jane Clark, both new series

'Eat Right for Life' sounds like you'll need to be taking notes on the side. Just from the title, I can see why reading it may be like studying a textbook.

Here's my WWW Wednesdays contribution!

I'm not currently reading anything as I've just finished two books and haven't picked one to read next from my keeper shelves.
Currently reading: I'm in-between books today.
Recently Read: Jewels of the Sun and Tears of the Moon by Nora Roberts
And no idea what's up next!

Same quiz results as you. Yeah-no. Not even a little.

I hope you have a great day!
