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 September 4, 2013:

What are you currently reading?  I am reading The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon by Stephen King and actually finding it enjoyable.  I read Dolores Claiborne, and was expecting to jump out of my skin at any moment.  I haven’t had that sensation…..yet.

girl

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.

What did you recently finish reading?  I just finished reading I Am The Messenger by Markus Zusak.  See my review here.

messenger

From the Goodreads:  Ed Kennedy is an underage cabdriver without much of a future.  He’s pathetic at playing cards, hopelessly in love with his best friend Audrey, and utterly devoted to his coffee-drinking dog, the Doorman.  His life is one of peaceful routine and incompetence until he inadvertently stops a bank robbery.

That’s when the first ace arrives in the mail.

That’s when Ed becomes the messenger.

Chosen to care, he makes his way through town helping and hurting (when necessary) until only one question remains:  Who’s behind Ed’s mission?

What do you think you are going to read next?  I am going to read The Hours by Michael Cunningham.

From the Publisher:  Passionate, profound, and deeply moving, The Hours is the story of three women:  Clarissa Vaughan, who one New York morning goes about planning a party in honor of a beloved friend; Laura Brown, who in a 1950s Los Angeles suburb slowly begins to feel the constraints of a perfect family and home; and Virginia Woolf, recuperating with her husband in a London suburb, and beginning to write Mrs. Dalloway.  By the end of the novel, the stories have intertwined, and finally come together in an act of subtle and haunting grace, demonstrating Michael Cunningham’s deep empathy for his characters as well as the extraordinary resonance of his prose.
