WWW (26) and Waiting on Wednesday (February 8th, 2012): The Diviners by Libba Bray

W. W. W. Wednesday is hosted by Should Be Reading a great blog that I subscribe to. Here's how it works... Each Wednesday I will answer the following questions:

What are you currently reading?

What did you recently finish reading?

What do you think you'll read next?

This has been a super-slow week of reading for me.  Last week I had one kids home sick, then I had a sick puppy, now this week I have another kid home sick.  Add to that the start of the softball season, and I've been BUSY...

What are you currently reading?

Pure by Julianna Baggott~ I like the way she writes, and this book looks really excellent.  It came out today, so I'm a little behind with my ARCs.  I'm hoping it's one of those books I can't put down.  Stay tuned!

Firelight by Sophie Jordan~ Finally!  I've been wanting to read this for ages, but haven't been able to get around to it!  I just got an audio copy, so now I can "read" it while I act as my kids' maid, chauffeur, laundress, and ATM.  :-)

Demonglass by Rachel Hawkins~ This is a buddy-read with my daughter.  She loved Hex Hall, so we are on to the next book.  She wants to make sure she is all read up for the release of Spell Bound next month.

What did you recently finish reading?

A Million Suns by Beth Revis~ This may not seem possible, but this book was better than Across the Universe.  I loved it!  Lots of big secrets revealed, with lots of murder and mayhem along the way.  There's also kissing.  Review to come.

The Boyfriend List: 15 Guys, 11 Shrink Appointments, 4 Ceramic Frogs, and Me, Ruby Oliver by E. Lockhart~ I've been meaning to read this forever!  It was so cute.  I totally get why everyone loved Ruby Oliver so much!  She's great.  Just the type of girl I would be BFFs with in HS.  Review to come.
Paper Towns by John Green~ This was a "re-read" of the audio, and like the text version, I loved it.  Actually, I loved it even more!  Read my full review HERE.

What do you think you'll read next?

The Butterfly Clues by Kate Ellison~ Since I didn't get to this one last week, it will be read next.  The cover is reason alone!  Also, I'm kind of in the mood for a thriller.

Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally~ I've been meaning to read this one since it came out a couple of months ago.  I've heard such rave reviews about it.  Stay tuned!

"Waiting On" Wednesday is another fun blog event. Hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, this event gives us a chance to talk about the books we anxiously await the release of. Since there is ALWAYS a looooooong list of books I'm waiting on (I actually keep a spreadsheet), I figured this is one that I MUST do.

I have been waiting for a cover for this one FOREVER, just so I could put it in this post!

The Diviners by Libba Bray

A supernatural series set in Manhattan during the 1920s that follows a teen heroine reminiscent of two of the era's most famous literary women—Zelda Fitzgerald and Dorothy Parker. The story will be a wild new ride full of dames and dapper dons, jazz babies and Prohibition-defying parties, conspiracy and prophecy—and all manner of things that go bump in the neon-drenched night.

I LOVE Libba Bray!  I'm a huge fangirl!  As always, I will run right out and buy this book when it comes out.  In fact, I will probably buy two copies, because I whenever I read one of her books, I end up giving my copy away to someone while preaching at them about how they "must read it NOW!".  This book looks amazingly awesome.  I love it when she does Historical Fiction (the Gemma Doyle books are fantastic) and I am eager to read what she does with Prohibition era NY!  Does it suck that we had to wait over a year between books?  Yes.  But it will, no doubt, be totally worth it!

    Here's my WWW for the week:


Thanks for visiting my blog! I adore comments since they make me feel special and loved, just please don't spam me. I'm not interested in vacation offers, millions of dollars from Nigeria, or anything not book related!

Also, this is an award-free blog. As flattered as I am, I just don't have time. I'm happy if I have time to post all of my reviews on time, and am a momma of three to boot, but I appreciate the thoughts! XO
