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 today:

What are you currently reading?  I am reading A Funeral for an Owl by Jane Davis.  I am about a fifth of the way and so far I am liking it.  Check out the synopsis below:

Synopsis:  A rule-keeper, Ayisha Emmanuelle believes the best way to avoid trouble is by walking away. But, arriving on the scene of what appears to be a playground fight, that isn’t an option. To her horror she finds her colleague Jim Stevens has been stabbed. In the messy aftermath, when Shamayal discloses that he and Jim are friends, Ayisha’s first duty is to report her colleague. But, not knowing if he will pull through, something makes her hesitate. Now, all she can do is wait to see if her instinct was justified.

What did you recently finish reading?  I just finished reading Bloodmark by Aurora Whittet. and have added it to my list of favorite books.  You can see my review here.

What do you think you are going to read next?   I am going to read Secrets of the Speckled Oak: The Story of a Mother’s Love and Perseverence by Dawn Alexander.  It looks like a very moving read.  I will be sure to have my tissues handy as I am a weeper.  Check out the synopsis below.

Synopsis:  Laura, a loving mother and wife, struggles over the fact of revealing difficult family secrets to her sons, Max and Alex. She laughs to herself at the thought of how closely her “real-life” resembles that of a “Lifetime Movie.” She mulls over how difficult it would be to actually “tell” Max the entire story! When suddenly the answer to her dilemma strikes her! Laura elects to relive many of her joyful and heartbreaking events that helped to shape her life, by way of a letter! Laura lovingly writes a letter to her son, Max. She explains how not only heartbreak, but love has transformed her life into what it is today. Within the envelope of the letter, Laura places a special gift for Max and Alex to share, which the sons do not initially understand. Laura quotes scriptures from the Bible throughout her letter in hopes that it may aid her son Max through the “journey” of his mother’s life. She hopes once he has completed the reading of the letter and her life story, he may understand even though life does not always turn out exactly how one may have it planned, does not mean the outcome will not turn out even better than he could have ever imagined!
