The Three Ws are:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next, and/or what are you eagerly awaiting?
I just started The Great Alone, by Kristin Hannah, a NetGalley ARC of a book that will be released on February 6.
Unpredictable. Unforgiving. Untamed.
For a family in crisis, the ultimate test of survival.
I’m also periodically reading Fire & Fury: Inside the Trump White House, by Michael Wolff, the inside story of the most controversial presidency of our time…

Seeing Red, by Sandra Brown
Alternate Side, by Anna Quindlen (Release Date: March 20, 2018)
I love anything and everything written by Anna Quindlen, so I was thrilled to discover her newest creation.
Synopsis: The tensions in a tight-knit neighborhood—and a seemingly happy marriage—are exposed by an unexpected act of violence. A provocative novel about money, class, and self-discovery, from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Miller’s Valley and Still Life with Bread Crumbs.
Some days Nora Nolan thinks that she and her husband, Charlie, lead a charmed life—except when there’s a crisis at work, a leak in the roof at home, or a problem with their twins at college. And why not? New York City was once Nora’s dream destination, and her clannish dead-end block has become a safe harbor, a tranquil village amid the urban craziness. The owners watch one another’s children grow up. They use the same handyman. They trade gossip and gripes, and they maneuver for the ultimate status symbol: a spot in the block’s small parking lot.
Then one morning, Nora returns from her run to discover that a terrible incident has shaken the neighborhood, and the enviable dead-end block turns into a potent symbol of a divided city. The fault lines begin to open: on the block, at Nora’s job, especially in her marriage. With an acute eye that captures the snap crackle of modern life, Anna Quindlen explores what it means to be a mother, a wife, and a woman at a moment of reckoning.
That’s my week so far…what does yours look like?
