A quick post this morning, since I am running late. WWW Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by the lovely MizB at “Should Be Reading.” Three questions, three answers. Go!
What are you currently reading?
I am currently reading Scarlet by A.C. Gaughen. I am really enjoying it. It’s definitely a different spin on the Robin Hood story, that’s for sure. I’m also reading through The Anatomy of Story by John Truby because I’m starting to outline a new novel of my own. Not because I’m stopping work on my previous project, but I need something to cleanse the palate so I don’t get stale. Besides, I’ve hit a bit of the writer’s block with my other project, so I’m hoping starting up something new will break me out of it.
What did you recently finish reading?
I just finished The Bones of Paris by Laurie R. King. The podcast got this one as an ARC and reviewed it last weekend. I will be posting a review here as well soon.
What do you think you’ll read next?
I need to start a re-read of Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. The Mallorean Tavern is reading it for their book club starting this month. I love this book, so it won’t take me long. The next book on my stack is If I Stay by Gayle Forman. I’ve heard really good things about it, so I’m looking forward to reading it.
Please leave your WWW posts in comments!

I am going to read that Laurie King book. Here is my WWW Wednesday:
Have you read her other books? This one actually has another book before it in the series, and although she says they can be read in any order, you might want to start with the first one if you haven’t already read it. I kept feeling like something was missing.
Which one should I read first? And thank you!
I believe the first book in this series is called Touchstone. It’s the first of the Harris Stuyvesant books, with The Bones of Paris being the second one.
Oh I have Scarlet waiting for me on my shelf. Look forward to hearing your thoughts. I’m sure I’ll get round to it eventually. I posted here: http://lipsyy.wordpress.com/2013/09/11/www-wednesday-11-09-2013/
It’s pretty good so far. 🙂
Scarlet sounds really interesting! I hope you enjoy your books this week! 🙂
Thanks! It’s been pretty good so far. Happy reading!
Hey, I have the Gayle Forman book. Haven’t read it, of course… it’s not my usual cup of tea, but Holly read it and said it was really good. She also said it made her cry, and I usually don’t like stuff that makes me cry, which is why I haven’t read it yet.
I believe it was Holly who recommended it to me as well. It was another one that I found for $1.99 and had to go ahead and buy. Because . . . why not!
Enjoy your books 🙂

Thanks! Hope you enjoy yours as well! 🙂
I’ve been meaning to read Ready Player One for ages! I just haven’t been able to buy it, because all these other books keep popping up!

I know what you mean. I keep thinking to myself if new, good books would quit popping up on my radar, maybe I could get caught up on all this other stuff I have to read! Doesn’t happen though. Oh well. Ready Player One is a fun book and I’m looking forward to re-reading it. Since I already know the story, I don’t need to think too hard. I can just relax with this one. Sometimes that’s really nice. 🙂
Oh, the problems us bookworms face! 😉
That’s one of the reasons I love to reread!
I have Scarlet on my bookshelf (TRB pile), so nice to hear you’re enjoying it! Good luck with your current WIP this week, and your new outline! 🙂
I actually finished it today. It was really good! A fun take on the Robin Hood stuff.
Yey, looking forward to it then! Rood Hood was always my favourite Disney movie! 🙂
Aw, I love that one too! I haven’t seen it in ages though. Need to find it and watch it again. 🙂
Me too! 🙂
