WWW Wednesdays

It's time for WWW Wednesdays hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words

This weekly meme consists of answering The Three Ws:

What are you currently reading?

 What did you recently finish reading?

What do you think you’ll read next?

I'm reading . . .
A Man Called Ove 

I'm reading this book with two of my book clubs. Ove is an oddball of sorts who is currently at a crossroads in life.  More from Goodreads.


I finished reading . . .
My Brilliant Friend (The Neapolitan Novels, #1) 

Sad to say, but for me this book just didn't live up to the hype.  The characters, of which there were many, didn't engage me and I couldn't connect with the lifestyle and customs of the village.


I'm reading next . . .
The Little Paris Bookshop 

This is another book club read, and one I'm eager to begin.  More from Goodreads.


What I'm Waiting For . . .
The Wonder 
Publisher: Little, Brown and Company
Publication Date:  September 20, 2016

From barnesandnoble.comIn Emma Donoghue's latest masterpiece, an English nurse brought to a small Irish village to observe what appears to be a miracle-a girl said to have survived without food for months-soon finds herself fighting to save the child's life.

Tourists flock to the cabin of eleven-year-old Anna O'Donnell, who believes herself to be living off manna from heaven, and a journalist is sent to cover the sensation. Lib Wright, a veteran of Florence Nightingale's Crimean campaign, is hired to keep watch over the girl.

Written with all the propulsive tension that made Room a huge bestseller, The Wonder works beautifully on many levels—a tale of two strangers who transform each other's lives, a powerful psychological thriller, and a story of love pitted against evil.
