It’s time for this week’s WWW Wednesdays, hosted by Should Be Reading blog (head over and check them out!).

This link up asks three questions:

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

Here are my WWW answers!

What am I currently reading?

I love Douglas Coupland. He’s got this fantastic ability to make things that are incredibly ordinary – or even distasteful – into an entertaining, touching story. He’s created some really weird characters in his day, but with this book he took it to a whole new level. It’s kind of underscoring the fact that my sense of humour is not only dark, but pitch black, because so far I find Raymond Gunt totally hilarious.

What did I recently finish reading?

I loved this book. I expected to enjoy it, because John Green, but man. It’s the story of two boys, both named Will Grayson, who live not too far from one another in Illinois. The first Will Grayson is best friends with a gigantic football player named Tiny – who also happens to be gay and working on a musical. The second Will Grayson is struggling with keeping his orientation secret and the ensuing isolation. The two cross paths in the most unlikely of circumstances and places. I loved that the authors switched off chapters, each writing a different character. It really made it feel like two different people – which is much harder to achieve for one writer. I’ve never read a book with this structure before, but I loved it.

What do I think I’ll be reading next?

There are several books on my to-read list that I can’t wait to get to, but I think one of these two will be next up – though I’m also dipping into two books the lovely Katrin from Land of Candy Canes sent me for Christmas – Submarine and The Night Circus. Both excellent so far, so I’m really tempted to devour them! But I’m trying to savour them and stretch them out a bit. 

Now it’s your turn! Share your recent reads in the comments – and don’t forget to link up with the original post (and share a link in the comments) if you wrote your own WWW Wednesday! //<![CDATA[ var sc_project=10144299; var sc_invisible=1; var sc_security="82f610c9"; var scJsHost = (("https:" == document.location.protocol) ?
