WWW Wednesdays – April 8th 2015

Here’s a fun little treat, my first WWW Wednesday (a theme hosted by Should Be Reading) and also my first time participating in a weekly meme! I want to start participating in some of these weekly memes in order to keep my blog freshly updated!

WWW Wednesday requires you to answer three questions:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

And when he nicknames her “the Duff,” she throws her Coke in his face. But things aren’t so great at home right now, and Bianca is desperate for a distraction. She ends up kissing Wesley. Worse, she likes it. Eager for escape, Bianca throws herself into a closeted enemies-with-benefits relationship with him. Until it all goes horribly awry. It turns out Wesley isn’t such a bad listener, and his life is pretty screwed up, too. Suddenly Bianca realizes with absolute horror that she’s falling for the guy she thought she hated more than anyone.

WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’LL READ NEXT?

Where They Found Her (Gifted by Publisher for Review)

Author: Kimberly McCreight

Publisher: HarperCollins Canada

Genre: Fiction, Psychological Thriller

Release Date: April 14th 2015

Page Count: 336

Format: Paperback ARC

ISBN: 9780062225467

Goodreads Synopsis: From the author of the New York Times bestseller and 2014 Edgar and Anthony nominee Reconstructing Amelia comes another harrowing, gripping novel that marries psychological suspense with an emotionally powerful story about a community struggling with the consequences of a devastating discovery. At the end of a long winter, in bucolic Ridgedale, New Jersey, the body of an infant is discovered in the woods near the town’s prestigious university campus. No one knows who the baby is, or how her body ended up out there. But there is no shortage of opinions. When freelance journalist, and recent Ridgedale transplant, Molly Anderson is unexpectedly called upon to cover the story for the Ridegdale Reader, it’s a risk, given the severe depression that followed the loss of her own baby. But the bigger threat comes when Molly unearths some of Ridgedale’s darkest secrets, including a string of unreported sexual assaults that goes back twenty years. Meanwhile, Sandy, a high school dropout, searches for her volatile and now missing mother, and PTA president Barbara struggles to help her young son, who’s suddenly having disturbing outbursts. Told from the perspectives of Molly, Barbara, and Sandy, Kimberly McCreight’s taut and profoundly moving novel unwinds the tangled truth about the baby’s death revealing that these three women have far more in common than they realized. And that their lives are more intertwined with what happened to the baby than they ever could have imagined.


I hope that was a fun little update for you all and I encourage you all to participate! 🙂
