WWW Wednesday 31 Jul 2013 (Find out what I am reading this week)

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?

I decided to read Carrie by Stephen King again for about the third time. It’s a great story, though I sort of don’t like the story as a historical account, but it makes sense. It needs that element of other people telling the story, so you can understand what Carrie’s going through. She’s not capable of explaining how weird her mother is because she has nothing else to compare it to. I’m almost finished. I put it down last night right as things were kicking off at the prom.

What did you recently finish reading?

I still am only half way through with Stunning. I read chapters here and there, but I’m not sucked in like I use to be (especially because now the mystery’s been solved, basically.)

What do you think you’ll read next?

Until the End: Final Friends Trilogy: The Party, The Dance, and The Graduation by Christopher Pike. I would really love to say that I’m going to read through all three of these books again. I’ve had it since my first trip back to Florida in 2011 and I just recently started rereading the first book. I absolutely loved Christopher Pike novels when I was in high school, and I distinctly remember this series to be more detailed and engaging as a young adult novel than the shorter books. I wanted to rekindle that excitement in reading for myself again. I want to remember what made me love a book when I was 15 years old.

By the way, the covers looked like this when I read them in the 90s:

   

Happy Reading and Happy Wednesday!

      I have to read Under the Dome. I hate that they rarely make a decent movie based on a King novel. I know they redid Carrie again and I still say Sissy Spacek was the best.

    Blast from the past with those Christopher Pike books…I used to love them!!

      I know, right? I forget how much of an avid reader of thrillers I was due to Christopher Pike and R.L. Stine.

        Yeah, I’d love revisit some of these. I still have some old Point Horror books somewhere, lots of good R L Stine ones in there too. I must try and find them!

      Ah, they’re the teen lit I grew up with. Very much like the Goosebumps series but more grown up, I guess you’d say.
