WWW Wednesdays (51) / Waiting on Wednesday (52): The Forbidden Library

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?

I'm back with Wednesday post!

So here are the books I've been up to after two weeks of not updating:

Currently Reading:

I recently finished--like, 30 minutes ago--The Distance Between Us by Kasie West that's why I am not reading anything at the moment. I figured I'll write this post and tomorrow's first.

Finished Reading:

An Endless Summer (Summer #2) [review here] and That One Summer (Summer #3) [review tomorrow for the blog tour] by C.J Duggan
I've read these books before the 2013 ends.

Deception by C.J Redwine (The Courier's Daughter #2), The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith, Defy by Sara B. Larson (Defy #1) ARC, and The Distance Between Us by Kasie West.

Read Next:

Her Dark Curiosity by Meghan Shepherd (The Madman's Daughter #2) ARC

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, originally started by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that highlights upcoming book releases everyone is waiting on.

The Forbidden Library
by Django Wexler

Expected publication: April 15th 2014 by Kathy Dawson Books

Blurb (Goodreads):
The Forbidden Library kicks off a brand new classic fantasy series perfect for fans of Coraline, Inkheart, and The Books of Elsewhere

Alice always thought fairy tales had happy endings. That--along with everything else--changed the day she met her first fairy

When Alice's father goes down in a shipwreck, she is sent to live with her uncle Geryon--an uncle she's never heard of and knows nothing about. He lives in an enormous manor with a massive library that is off-limits to Alice. But then she meets a talking cat. And even for a rule-follower, when a talking cat sneaks you into a forbidden library and introduces you to an arrogant boy who dares you to open a book, it's hard to resist. Especially if you're a reader to begin with. Soon Alice finds herself INSIDE the book, and the only way out is to defeat the creature imprisoned within.

It seems her uncle is more than he says he is. But then so is Alice.

So there's the words library, forbidden, fairy, the name Alice, and the phrase "finds herself INSIDE the book". Of course I HAVE to read this!
