WWW Wednesdays & WoW: Boys Boys Boys (Dec. 14)

W...W...W... Wednesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

To play along, just answer the following three (3) 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? Still reading a couple of books such as the ones I mentioned last week, I believe? However, add Entanglements by P.R. Mason to the list~

What did you recently finish reading? I just finished Legend, by Marie Lu, yesterday; The Future of Us, by Jay Asher & Carolyn Mackler, the day before that; and Across the Universe, by Beth Revis, sometime late last week. WOOT! They were definitely some good reads :)

What do you think you'll read next? Still planning to read Ashfall by Mike Mullin, but also Tempest by Julie Cross for part of an ARC tour~ Definitely excited. Might also add Rippler by Cindey Swanson to read after one of the books aforementioned.


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill's Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're waiting to get our greedy little hands on.

This week we have:

From GR:
Jackson Godspeed is the hottest young Angel in a city filled with them. He's days away from becoming a full Guardian, and people around the world are already competing for the chance to be watched over by him. Everyone's obsessed with the Angels and the lucky people they protect - everyone except for Madison Montgomery.

Maddy's the one girl in Angel City who doesn't breathlessly follow the Angels on TV and gossip blogs. When she meets Jackson, she doesn't recognize him. But Jackson is instantly captivated by her, and against all odds the two fall in love.

Maddy is swiftly caught up in Jackson's scene, a world of glamour, paparazzi - and murder. A serial killer is on the loose, leaving dead Angels' wings for the police to find on the Walk of Fame. Even the Guardians are powerless to protect themselves in the face of this threat … and this time it's up to Maddy to save Jackson.

From GR:
Zach is riding the Greyhound bus through a snowstorm to visit his older brother Derek, whom he hasn’t seen in seven months. That’s when their parents finally went broke paying Derek’s doctor’s bills and had to give him up as a ward of the state. Nothing—not drawing in his sketchbook, not basketball—lets Zach forget that his brother is living in a mental institution five states away. But surprisingly, sitting next to a talkative teenage girl he nicknames Purplehead starts to take the edge off Zach’s pain.

Prompted by a chain of unpredictable events and by the people he meets along the way, Zach’s cynical humor gives us a poignant look at medical insurance and health care systems for the mentally ill, and at the everyday fears, joys, and revelations of adolescence.
