WWW Wednesdays (Feb. 4)

This meme was originally hosted by MizB over at ShouldbeReading, but is now hosted by the wonderful Sam over at Taking on a World of Words. The questions are the same: What did you recently finish reading? What are you currently reading? What do you think you will read next? So let’s get to it: [Click on the book cover to get to the Goodreads page for the book.] WHAT DID YOU RECENTLY FINISH READING? WHAT ARE YOU CURRENTLY READING? WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’LL READ NEXT? What are your three W’s?

Teaser Tuesday (Oct. 7)

  Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following: • Grab your current read • Open to a random page • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!) • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers! My teaser is from Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson (Trigger warning: this book deals with mental health issues, specifically anorexia). I’m reading this book for Mental Health Week. “I eat ten raisins (16) and five almonds (35) and a green-bellied pear (121) (=172). The bites crawl down my throat.” Sorry I’ve not been on as much these past couple of weeks. Life has been busy. Feel free to leave a comment. I would love to see what books others are reading. 🙂

Dante is a know-it-all who has an unusual way of looking at the world. When the two meet at the swimming pool, they seem to have nothing in common. But as the loners start spending time together, they discover that they share a special friendship—the kind that changes lives and lasts a lifetime. And it is through this friendship that Ari and Dante will learn the most important truths about themselves and the kind of people they want to be. My thoughts: This was my second time reading this book, and I have to say, I loved it even more this time around than when I first read it (I even bumped it up from 4 stars to 5 stars!). It is one of those that I could re-read over and …
