WWW Wednesdays

WWW Wednesdays is a meme from Should Be Reading, where we answer three questions: What are you currently reading? What did you recently finish reading? and What do you think you'll read next? If you want to participate, answer the three questions, then put your link on the Should Be Reading Blog in the comment section. Happy reading!

What I am currently reading:

The Wives of Henry Oades: A Novel (Random House Reader's Circle)
The Wives of Henry Oades by Johanna Moran - This one caught my eye one day at the library. It is apparently a story of a man who, after his wife is presumed dead, marries another, only to find out that his first wife (and children) are still alive. It reminded me of the movie, My Favorite Wife, starring Cary Grant. The story is probably not even close to being the same, but that's what I thought of when I read the blurb on the back of the book. I'll let you know what I think after I read it.

Game Change: Obama and the Clintons, McCain and Palin, and the Race of a LifetimeI'm also reading Game Change by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin - I'm reading this for my personal reading challenge to read all the non-fiction New York Times bestsellers for this year. I decided that the only way I would make it through a thick political book was to read one chapter a night instead of all at once. I can take only so much politics at a time. It is really quite interesting.

What I recently finished reading:

Secrets of Eden: A NovelSecrets of Eden by Chris Bohalian - I kind of liked this book, but not entirely. I'll write my review sometime in the next several days.

What I will probably read next:

The Mysterious Benedict SocietyThe Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart - I saw this book recommended by Carrie at Reading to Know Blog. Interestingly, she heard about the book from Sherry at Semicolon Blog, who just happens to be my sweet big sister! Thanks, Carrie and Sherry. I'll let you know what I think when I'm finished with the book.

So, that's what I'm reading. What about you? What are you reading? Tell me in the comments.

Game Change sounds highly intriguing and I'll definitely be looking forward to your thoughts on that! I hear you about taking it one chapter at a time!

Of course, I'm naturally THRILLED to see MBS on your book stack. ;D YAY! =D (Although, technically, I found that one on my own, randomly perusing Border's Bookstore shelves.) I am entirely indebted to your sister for introducing me to The Strictest School in the World series and I shall never be able to repay her the kindness. =D

Currently I'm reading Every Woman's Marriage and Practicing Hospitality and one other book that I misplaced and I can't even remember what the title is anymore to hunt for it! How sad is that!?!? Oh well. I'm sure it will turn up!
