WWW and Waiting on Wednesday (1)

Posted November 8, 2012 by Stephanie in / 0 Comments

WWW Wednesdays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. To play along, simply answer the three questions: What are you currently reading? What did you recently finish reading? What do you think you’ll read next?
What are you currently reading?

I am currently reading The Lifted Veil by George Eliot. I am reading this for a class at school and because I am using it in my senior paper. It’s a novella and only about 40 pages or so and quite interesting. :]

What did you recently finish reading?

I recently finished reading The Pledge by Kimberly Derting. I loved that book (review to come soon). I read it in about a day and a half and cannot wait until the sequel comes out. :] (I’m participating in the sequel’s blog tour this upcoming January, so keep a look out!)

What do you think you’ll read next?

I’m pretty sure I’m going to be reading The Burn by Annie Oldham. It’s the first book in a YA Dystopian series and I am a part of the Infraction (the sequel) blog tour later this month.

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking The Spine. This meme spotlights the upcoming books that we are all eagerly awaiting to come out!
Title: This Is What Happy Looks Like
Author: Jennifer E. Smith
Release Date: April 2nd 2013

If fate sent you an email, would you answer?
In This is What Happy Looks Like, Jennifer E. Smith’s new YA novel, perfect strangers Graham Larkin and Ellie O’Neill meet—albeit virtually—when Graham accidentally sends Ellie an email about his pet pig, Wilbur. In the tradition of romantic movies like “You’ve Got Mail” and “Sleepless in Seattle,” the two 17-year-olds strike up an email relationship, even though they live on opposite sides of the country and don’t even know each other’s first names.
Through a series of funny and poignant messages, Graham and Ellie make a true connection, sharing intimate details about their lives, hopes and fears. But they don’t tell each other everything; Graham doesn’t know the major secret hidden in Ellie’s family tree, and Ellie is innocently unaware that Graham is actually a world-famous teen actor living in Los Angeles.
When the location for the shoot of Graham’s new film falls through, he sees an opportunity to take their relationship from online to in-person, managing to get the production relocated to picturesque Henley, Maine, where Ellie lives. But can a star as famous as Graham have a real relationship with an ordinary girl like Ellie? And why does Ellie’s mom want her to avoid the media’s spotlight at all costs?
Just as they did in The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight, the hands of fate intervene in wondrous ways in this YA novel that delivers on high concept romance in lush and thoughtful prose.

I LOVED The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer and because of that, I will read anything that she comes out with. I cannot wait until April when this comes out! :]

What are you reading and what are you waiting on?
