WWW Wednesdays August 21, 2013

Posted: August 21, 2013 in Book Review


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?

Here is my WWW for August 21, 2013:

What are you currently reading?  I am reading The Runaway King by Jennifer A. Nielsen.  I have just started but so far I am really enjoying it.  I loved the first book in the series The False Prince, so have high hopes for this one.


From the Publisher:  When Betrayal lurks around every corner, a king is forced to flee his throne.  Will he ever come back again?

What did you recently finish reading?  I just finished A Wolf at the Table by Augusten Burroughs.  This was a somewhat difficult read.  Not because of the writing, but because of the treatment that Mr. Burroughs received at the hands of his father.  You can see my review here.


From the Publisher:  With A Wolf at the Table, the prequel to his phenomenal bestseller Running with Scissors, Augusten Burroughs re-creates the unspeakably terrifying relationship between a sociopathic father and a son yearning for unconditional love.  Emotionally unflinching and brave, A Wolf at the Table is a truly devastating look at the distance that can separate fathers and sons.

What do you think you are going to read next?  I am going to try to read The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon by Stephen King.  I started reading this before The Runaway King but started to get “creeped out” so put it down.  I am determined to pick it back up as it looks too good to DNF.


From the Publisher:  The world had teeth and it could bit you with them anytime it wanted.  Trisha McFarland discovered this when she was nine years old.  At ten o’clock on a morning in early June, she was sitting in the back seat of her mother’s Dodge Caravan, wearing her blue Red Sox batting practice jersey (the one with 36 GORDON on the back) and playing with Mona, her doll.  At ten thirty she was lost in the woods.  By eleven she was trying not to be terrified, trying not to let herself think, This is serious, this is very serious.  Trying not to think that sometimes when people get lost in the woods they got seriously hurt.  Sometimes they died.

Tell me about your WWW’s!

    A Wolf At the Table definitely sounds disturbing. AB always picks great titles for his autobiographies. Did you see the film adaption of his first one? The cast list was amazing. 🙂

    Oh goodness, the Stephen King book looks brilliant, but I’m far too easily creeped out! I hope you enjoy it though. Happy Reading! 🙂
