What Are You Reading? Wednesday

What is on your reader this fine spring morning? Or are you too caught up in cherry blossom viewing to open up a book?

I'm catching up on a short story from a YA series I just finished. The short story is called Raven and it is from the Delirium trilogy, and I am really enjoying learning more about a supporting character.  I was really disappointed with the recently released last book, Requiem, as I need more closure. I loved the first two books in the series as well as the other short stories. I need more Lauren Oliver, more!!

Tomorrow is the ebook release date for Lover at Last, which is one of my guilty pleasures. It's from the Black Dagger Brotherhood and we have been waiting for the story of these two lovers for years, and this is our big chance for a payoff. I am so hoping it lives up to the hype! One of the things I love about this series is that we get so much from other couples as well, and there are problems even though they are together. This makes it as realistic as you can get from crime-fighting bloodsuckers.

My kids are enjoying reading an old classic, Richard Scarry's What Do People Do All Day? Not only is this fun for the kids and nostalgic for me, but it provides so many great social studies and science lessons. My kids have been inspired and want to try making paper this weekend. How can you go wrong with this book?

Have you ever been disappointed with the conclusion to a book series?


  1. I've finally started Mockingjay, the third novel in The Hunger Games Trilogy. I hope I won't be disappointed with the conclusion! I love it so far.

    I read His Dark Materials trilogy (The Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife, The Amber Spy Glass) and really enjoyed it. I did find that the last book was quite different from the other two. It didn't end the way I hoped it would, but the ending was right for the story. So, not disappointed, just saddened by it!

    Let's not bother talking about that Twilight series!

  2. I'm really bad at finishing series. Even ones I enjoy. The only one I can think of off-hand was the Potter series and I enjoyed that ending.

    Right now I'm reading The Ecstasy of Rita Joe, Tangles, and Mein Kampf-- which I feel I need to explain that I'm reading solely for the historical significance.

  3. My kids are loving "The big wide mouthed frog" ( and various Spot books. The Spot books are great to read to them both actually as they have to take it in turns to open the flaps so it is a good learning opportunity! The favourite Spot book at the moment is "Spot`s First Easter"

    I am reading your blog. Oh & chick lit book easy to pick up and put easy I forgot the name/author. Whoops!

  4. Awesome!!! We can't wait to get more of Scarry's work into the house. Mostly because we've read Best Word Book Ever and Best Storybook Ever at least 200 times!
