HEY! Bet you’d thought I had forgotten about this poor blog? I haven’t posted in awhile, even though I have still been reading, watching, and blogging in my spare time.
And there’s nothing like a weekly meme to encourage you to update, yeah? Just stumbled upon this one while browsing my GoodReads. I’ve seen other weekly reading memes, but they seemed to be for people who read must faster than I do and who think about what they will read next in a much more organized fashion. As a librarian, I tend to have a giant stack of books next to me at all times, ranging from children’s literature to teen comic books to adult non-fiction. And just when I think I know what I’m going to read next, that other book I have been waiting for shows up on my desk and I have to drop everything because I must read it right now.
This meme is hosted by Taking on a World of Words if you wish to join in the fun!
The Three Ws are:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
Currently Reading: I have a bookmark about halfway through The Borden Murders: Lizzie Borden and the Trial of the Century by Sarah Miller which, while technically a children’s non-fiction book, I am really enjoying and is just as long as any of the adult books about the Bordens. I really like how Miller is presenting the case, I don’t know which side she is on but I don’t feel like she is 100% convinced that Lizzie is behind it.
I also just started To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee because I somehow never read it in high school and I feel like I should. I’m only one chapter in though.
What did you recently finish reading?: Firelight (Amulet #7) by Kazu Kibuishi and oh my gosh, this series just keeps getting better! I did not see that twist coming. This is one of the best fantasy/sci-fi graphic series out there for kids, I’m always recommending it. I just wish it didn’t take so long for the books to come out! UGH!
What do you think you’ll read next?:
Just had a copy of To Be or Not To Be: A chooseable path adventures by Ryan North, William Shakespeare and YOU! and started flipping through it and I am laughing out loud so this might end up jumping to the top of my To-Be-Read pile.
So, what are you reading?
Enjoy TKAM! It was one of those books I ‘didn’t hate’ in high school. Happy reading and thanks for participating in WWW Wednesday!

Currently reading: Tales of the Ten Lost Tribes by Tamar Yellin, ten short stories, each based on one of the ten tribes of Israel exiled by the Assyrians – really amazing writing.
Recently finished reading: The Dreadful Revenge of Ernest Gallen by James Lincoln Collier – a J-Fic I would recommend to readers looking for a different kind of ghost story, even though the ending is very disappointing…
What I’ll read next: (in fact, in just a few minutes!) The Storyteller by Aaron Starmer, the final book in the weird-but-excellent J-Fic Riverman trilogy.
