WWW Wednesday / Waiting on Wednesday

Wednesday is a two meme day!

WWW Wednesdays are hosted by MizB over at 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?

Here’s my WWW Wednesday for today!

One of Audubon’s prints

What are you currently reading?
I’m still reading Audubon: The Making of an American, which I mentioned in yesterday’s Teaser Tuesday post. And honestly, I may be reading it for a while; it’s a dense 400+ pages! But as a biography of one of the most talented and celebrated wildlife artists and naturalists out there, it’s extremely readable, and so far I highly recommend it!

What did you recently finish reading?
I tore through Catching Fire, Suzanne Collins’s sequel to The Hunger Games, in a few hours last Sunday. A fun page-turner, with another damn cliffhanger ending!

What do you think you’ll read next?
I’ve got a few things waiting for me on my bookshelf, including The Bean Trees by Barbara Kingsolver, Last Child in the Woods by Richard Louve, and Of a Feather by Scott Weidensaul. That looks a bit non-fiction heavy, though, so I’m open to recommendations! 🙂 What have you read recently that you absolutely could not put down?

Now, Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. What book are you waiting for to be released?  Here’s mine:

The Hunger Games: Book Three! As you can see, I still have about six months to wait (!!). It’s so early that there isn’t even an Amazon summary of this yet. So all I can say is that it’s the conclusion to The Hunger Games series, a revolution is brewing, and everyone (but especially PEETA) is in danger. In the time it takes for this book to come out, I will have moved to a different state, gotten a new apartment, potentially have adopted a dog, and changed jobs. And I will STILL read this book the second it hits shelves.

    I think I am like the last person on earth who hasn’t started to read Hunger games. I cant wait to start the series.
    The covers are okay.

      LOL Nina, I felt exactly the same way! I kept trying (and failing) to get them out of the library, and I finally broke down and bought them only recently. They’re a fun read–you’ll really enjoy them.

    I’m with Nina…am definitely putting that one on my TBR list.

    I haven’t read the Catching Fire series, but I’ve heard good things! My WOW is at The Crowded Leaf.

    Oh, I cannot WAIT for the 3rd Hunger Games to come out! I read the first two in December and I just loved them. It’s on the edge of your seat stuff! August cannot come quickly enough for me.

    Thanks for popping over to my blog to check out my WoW, Taryn.

      Same here! I almost wish I had waited to read these until the third book was out. Almost. 😉 And yes, I enjoyed your blog–you can bet I’ll be back!

    I’ve been planning to read the Hunger Games series, but I keep postponing. Maybe I’ll leave them for the summer & than I won’t wait too much for the 3rd book, since the 2nd book ends with a cliffganger 😉 Happy reading!!!

    I keep hearing good things about this series/trilogy, but I haven’t read them yet. I think I’ll wait until the third one comes out though to read them. 🙂 Great pick for this week!

    The Audubon book sounds wonderful!

      I haven’t read tons of biographies, but this one is fantastic! It’s very accessible, and all of the additional details about the U.S. during this time period are super interesting. I would recommend it to fans of general history as well!

    The audobon one looks really good! Enjoy!

    The cover & the title for the 3rd book is revealed. I don’t know if you saw it already, but here’s where I found it 😉
    Still no summary 😉
