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!

Relentless (Dominion Trilogy #1)What I am currently reading: Relentless by Robin Parrish - I was told about this book from an 18-year-old friend of mine. It is the first book in a series. She said they were some of her favorite books. Since we both like Ted Dekker and other authors, I thought I would probably like this as well. Well, I have read the first 90 pages, and I am intrigued. I'll probably want to read the others when I am finished with this one. I will try to write a review within the next several weeks.

The Miracle of Mercy Land: A NovelWhat I recently finished reading: The Miracle of Mercy Land by River Jordan - I commented on another of Mrs. Jordan's books last week. This is one I received from Waterbrook Press, and will write a review for it sometime next week.

Triumph: Life After the Cult--A Survivor's LessonsWhat I'll probably read next: Triumph by Carolyn Jessop - I read Escape by Ms. Jessop last year. This woman has an amazing story of her life in the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, a sect of the Mormon church that practices polygamy. I became interested in this group and Ms. Jessop in particular when the church's ranch was raided and the children removed after law officials learned about their illegal practices. I grew up in the town where the police took the children (and some of the mothers) to live while their case in court was decided. I watched on TV as they escorted them to and from the courthouse that I immediately recognized from my childhood. The whole situation is just so sad. I admire Ms. Jessop for her outspokenness and courage. You can read more about her here. Very, very interesting.

What are you reading this week?
