WWW Wednesdays 9/18

Happy Wednesday! What are you reading this week?  Play along with MizB and let us know what you have finished, What you are currently reading and What you are planning on reading next.

hex hallhexedI have been lazy about my blog lately, but reading lots.  I finished Hex Hall (#1) by Rachel Hawkins which was a fun and easy paranormal YA, boarding school romp.  Bewitched & Betrayed (Bk 4) by Lisa Shearin was my favorite of the series so far. Super fun fantasy.  Hexed (Iron Druid Bk 2) by Kevin Hearne was quite fun too, this series is growing on me.  I skimmed Dark Places by Gillian Flynn, the book made me cranky because it was a tough subject (serial killers) with some sucky characters, so I just sort of skimmed my way through and mailed it away.  I got super bitchy and decided to blame the book.  That is my story and I am sticking to it.  🙂

I am currently reading Demon Glass (Hex Hall, Bk 2) which is easy and quick yet entertaining.  Still reading Gone with the Wind and really need to pick that back up.

Next up I am going to read Four Til Late by Eric Garrison and finally try to read Death and Resurrection by RA MacAvoy or Plague Nation by Dana Fredsti.  Not sure yet.

What are you reading this week?

About ocdreader

I love to read! I always have a book or four going, I have more books in my to-be-read pile than I can read in a year and yet I continue to haunt the bookstores. I have a problem, but I somehow soldier on. I enjoy talking books, so pass on your recommendations and thoughts - I would love to hear them.

  1. The word Hex has left me confused about what you’ve finished and what you’re actually reading.

    I started that How Girl Guides Won the War book that Pooks suggested last week. I’m 30% of the way through it and it’s a decent enough read. Some parts are more interesting than others, but when you read the stories about Girl Guides helping people in German concentration camps or in the Warsaw Ghetto, it makes it a worthwhile read. It’s also fascinating when you realise that Girl Guides started in 1910, a time when girls left school at 14 – it offered a place for them to learn stuff like Morse code, bike repairs, electrical work, etc. that otherwise wouldn’t have been available to them.

      I know, everything is Hexed this week, maybe that is what happened to my mood, not Dark Places. Anyway, that sounds like an amazing read! It is fascinating to me that 100 years ago so much was expected of people SO YOUNG and now days they complain about doing homework. It is that whole survival thing, gets us to do all sorts of things, not having to work to survive makes us pretty lazy eh?

    I love Gone with the Wind but have been spoiled by the movie. I’m not sure I could read it. Your reaction to Dark Places is interesting. Good that you recognized it wasn’t for you. Here’s my WWW.

      It probably wasn’t the books fault but it didn’t help! She is a wonderful writer, I just couldn’t do it this week and had promised to do it. That might also be the problem, forcing myself to read a genre I am not feeling at that moment. Oh well, mini rebellions 🙂

    It took me a while to plod through Gone With The Wind. I thought it was an okay read! I hope you enjoy your books this week!

    I’ve been pretty lazy about blogging and reading all round lately! I think we all need some time off occasionally or it gets exhausting. 🙂 I’ve heard a lot about Hex Hall in the past year or so but haven’t overly felt like giving it a go, I think the cover has put me off!

  5. I really liked the Hex Hall series. I think Demonglass might have been my favorite! Happy reading!

    I read Gone with The Wind when I was one of those lazy teenagers you’re talking about – it was wonderful, but I don’t think I could do it all again. Sorry you’ve hand a cranky week. Hang in there.

    Love that you read so many “hexy” books! 🙂

    I have to be in the right frame of mind for Gillian Flynn, I find.

    I am excited for your Hex Hall review because I have always been iffy on starting that series.
