Happy Hump Day Folks,
You made it halfway through the week! Give yourself a big pat on the back.
If any of you are even remotely as busy/stressed as I’ve been with my dayjob, then you seriously deserve one!
All right, back to the subject. Every Wednesday I participate in a meme called WWW Wednesday.
This meme is a challenge where you share what you’re reading, what you’ve recently finished, and what you hope to read in the near future.
The meme is currently handled by Taking On A World of Words, and anybody can participate.
Simply read the 3 W questions below and answer them should you want to:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
The road in front of Dr. Louis Creed’s rural Maine home frequently claims the lives of neighborhood pets. Louis has recently moved from Chicago to Ludlow with his wife Rachel, their children and pet cat. Near their house, local children have created a cemetery for the dogs and cats killed by the steady stream of transports on the busy highway. Deeper in the woods lies another graveyard, an ancient Indian burial ground whose sinister properties Louis discovers when the family cat is killed.
Opinion so far:
I’m not very far into this at all, less than 10% at the time of writing this post. However, I’m really enjoying it so far. I like the characters, and things are starting off innocently enough. Man, I have a bad feeling about this! Definitely having fun so far.
Almost nothing could be as bad as finding out your mother is Visser One. The most powerful of all Vissers. The leader of the Yeerk invasion of Earth. But it happened to Marco. And even though he’s been handling it pretty well, he knew there’d come a time when he’d have to face her again. Knowing that the Yeerk in her brain had taken his mother away.
So when Marco, the other Animorphs, and Ax discover that Visser One is overseeing a secret underwater project, they know they have to check it out. But Marco’s not sure if this is a battle he’ll be able to fight….
This installment of the Animorphs series was great! We got to know Marco even better, and despite his comical ways, there really is so much more to him. Such a great adventure!
You can find my review here.
Next on my TBR:
Opinion so far:
After I finish Pet Sematary, it’ll be time for another short story review. I happened to download The Siren’s Curse when it was having a free promotion. It’s not my typical preference (the whole siren/mermaid thing), but I figured I’d give it a go and broaden my horizons.
Next it’ll be another quick Animorphs detour, then finally it’ll be time for a great holiday-themed book, just in time for Christmas!
So excited about the future!
That’s a Wrap!
Okay folks, that’s my WWW Wednesday for this week.

I’ve read Pet Sematary and I’m pretty sure it’s one the first books by him that I ended up enjoying. I find that King is overly descriptive in pretty much in all of his books that I’ve read which bothers me a little but the more I read by him the less it has seemed to bother me. Also something else that he likes to do is tell you something is going to happen before it actually happens and I despise that.
I agree with you. There are definitely times when he does that, and some books are worse than others. But so far I love it!
Yeah it annoys me so much. It takes away the reaction I would have had if it was a surprise if that makes sense.
Right?! I felt that his newer novel The Institute did that a lot, that’s why I rated it lower than usual. I’d rather be surprised.
I’d rather be surprised too.
Yeah, there was way too much warning that things were gonna happen. Just don’t tell us!
Thinking about I think it’s happened in pretty much all of the books I’ve read by him. I could be making that up but I know he does it frequently.
I think in his older books it might not have happened quite as frequently but in his newer ones I can get kind of annoyed a bit more
