The Three Ws are:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next, and/or what are you eagerly awaiting?
I am reading two books right now, as I have that restless feeling. One of the books is part of a series, so I can jump over to another book when I’m feeling the mood change.
Sunshine Beach, by Wendy Wax, is another chapter in the series about the women who lost their money to a Ponzi scheme, and then started recovering by renovating the house they each had a part ownership in. What started as a plan to flip that house turned into a career and then a TV show called Do Over.
If I Forget You, by Thomas Christopher Greene, is about two former lovers that reconnect in this beautiful and haunting tale of great lost love from the critically acclaimed author of The Headmaster’s Wife.
So far so good!
Untethered, by Julie Lawson Timmer (click for my review), is a story rich with themes of blended families, the broken foster care system, and abandonment.
This book, from an author I love, is not coming until March 2017….but I have already requested it from NetGalley (fingers crossed), and I am longing to get my hands on it.
The Trophy Child, by Paula Daly, digs beneath the serene surface of the idyllic suburban Lake District community where families strive for perfection, delivering a suspenseful, surprising story of motherhood and fallibility.
Blurb: Karen Bloom is not the coddling mother type. She believes in raising her children for success. Some in the neighborhood call her assertive, others say she’s driven, but in gossiping circles she’s known as: the tiger mother. Karen believes that tough discipline is the true art of parenting and that achievement leads to ultimate happiness. She expects her husband and her children to perform at 200 percent—no matter the cost. But in an unending quest for excellence, her seemingly flawless family start to rebel against her.
Her husband Noel is a handsome doctor with a proclivity for alcohol and women. Their prodigy daughter, Bronte, is excelling at school, music lessons, dance classes, and yet she longs to run away. Verity, Noel’s teenage daughter from his first marriage, is starting to display aggressive behavior. And Karen’s son from a previous relationship falls deeper into drug use. When tragedy strikes the Blooms, Karen’s carefully constructed facade begins to fall apart—and once the deadly cracks appear, they are impossible to stop.
So…these are my books for today. Current, past, and future reading. What are you sharing today?
