WWW Wednesday • 9

WWW Wednesday is hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading. 

Reading has been pretty slow for me this week. I've spent a lot of my free leisure time at home on work - paying work stuff.  It's awful I know, but a necessary evil sometimes. 

My hope is to regain some of my work-life balance again in  the next week or so, so I can get to the goodies I received in my mailbox this past week. 

 So on to my WWW Wednesday Post...

What are you currently reading?
I am currently reading 145th Street by Walter Dean Meyers. This is a YA collection of short stories set on 145th street in Harlem, New York. As I posted on goodreads yesterday, "I'm on page 80 of 160 of 145th Street: In a little over 7 short stories, I have sighed, cried, and laughed out loud. And I'm only half way done". 
I am also reading The Chosen Soul by Heather Killough-Walden.  I never like to read more than one book at once, but I accidentaly clicked on the first chapter in this book and I was instantly hooked.  Now I am desperately racing through 145th street so I can devote my sole attention to this book. 

What did you recently finish reading?
I finished reading A Little Less Girl by Tess Oliver. Another great eReader Bargain find! Check out my review.

What do you think you'll read next?
I have a number of books lined up. A couple of books I loaned from my local eLibrary just came in - City of Thieves by David Benioff and Afrika by Colleen Craig both look really good. I am also excited to read Just Like That by Margo Candela. So many books, so little time.  

I'm always looking for the next best read, so please share what you're reading with me!


  1. I think these are all new titles to me I'll ave to check em out. But yeah I agree, so many books to read. I wish we could read instead of sleep! :D

  2. Hi Giselle. A number of these books are not YA ones - City of Thieves and The Chosen Soul are adult reads. But A little less girl, Afrika and 145th were pegged as YA reads and I have definitely enjoyed reading 145th street. I expect to finish that tonight.

  3. Hi, my name is Elle and I found your post on book blogs. I am now following you. Please check out my blog..I also have a contest going on.
