Another feature I’m adding to my blog…
In an attempt to be more consistent with my blogging, I’ve decided to adopt features. See my first Top Ten Tuesday here. This time, I’m adopting WWW Wednesdays, which began on the blog 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?
Lara Jean keeps her love letters in a hatbox her mother gave her. One for every boy she’s ever loved. When she writes, she can pour out her heart and soul and say all the things she would never say in real life, because her letters are for her eyes only. Until the day her secret letters are mailed, and suddenly Lara Jean’s love life goes from imaginary to out of control…
I just started To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han last night, and I’m really enjoying it so far. This book has been on my TBR for a very long time, and I recently hauled it, so I felt it was high time I delved into the world of Lara Jean.
A mission to Mars.
A freak accident.
One man’s struggle to survive.
Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars.
Now, he’s sure he’ll be the first person to die there.
After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate the planet while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded on Mars’ surface, completely alone, with no way to signal Earth that he’s alive. And even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone years before a rescue could arrive.
Chances are, though, Mark won’t have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment or plain-old “human error” are much more likely to kill him first.
But Mark’s not ready to quit. Armed with nothing but his ingenuity and his engineering skills—and a gallows sense of humor that proves to be his greatest source of strength–he embarks on a dogged quest to stay alive, using his botany expertise to grow food and even hatching a mad plan to contact NASA back on Earth.
As he overcomes one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next, Mark begins to let himself believe he might make it off the planet alive.
But Mars has plenty of surprises in store for him yet.
This book was, in every sense of the word, amazing. It was very suited to my personal tastes, and the tension was so thick I could almost taste it in the air. I just finished it last night, and I’m still struggling to piece together my thoughts on how great it is. What I am sure of though, is that I would recommend it to everyone. Seriously. I’m not even a sci-fi fan, but this book was everything I could ever want in a novel. Review to come very soon.
⋘My Next Read⋙
This is a toss up between 2 fantasy books: Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carrol, and Cress by Marissa Meyer. On the one hand, I haven’t read Alice in a good few years, and I’m really wanting to reread it this summer. On the other hand, I just finished Scarlet by Marissa Meyer, and Cress is next in the series, and I don’t want to forget anything before returning to that world.
What do you guys think I should do?
Thank you for reading! What is your WWW Wednesday?
Keep an eye out for more WWW Wednesday day posts from me in the future!
