WWW Wednesday: What I'm Reading: Now. Last. Next

What are you currently reading?
I began The Fault In Our Stars by John Green a few minutes ago! So far, so good.  At a few pages in I like the character's disdainful voice; since he has cancer I'm assuming it's faux cocky? I'm assuming it is a 'he' but at this point there's nothing, besides that tone of voice, that indicates whether it's a 17 year old girl or guy. I expect I'll know for sure soon enough. The Fault In Our Stars been optioned for the movies and I'm pretty much a sucker for movies based on books. Must read the book first! I've been warned to have a box of tissue handy which is fine by me; I love the catharsis of a good weep fest.

What did you recently finish reading?
I just finished reading The World Without You by Joshua Henkin. I loved this family drama so much I decided to blog about it - it's the first time I've written about a book that hasn't been adapted for the screen - or on its way there. And according to Joshua Henkin, there's not a screen adaptation in the works just yet. He did tell me he's taken some meetings in L.A. though, so I'm keeping the faith. This would make a great character driven film featuring a strong ensemble cast of fabulously written females! I posted 'my take' on the book yesterday, along with my casting suggestions just for fun. I'd love you to take a look at my post and let me know what you think.

What do you think you'll read next?
The Age of Miracles by Karen Thompson Walker is technically next up on my list. I'm excited because it has been optioned - in fact Hollywood nabbed it before its publication date - but I haven't bought the book on my Nook yet. I just picked up The Replacement Wife by Eileen Goudge, Nineteen Minutes from Jodi Picoult and The Trouble with Mr. Darcy by Sharon Lathan from the library so I might save my $$$ and go with one of them next. I know Lathan has written a ton of Pride and Prejudice knockoffs but I've not read any of them. I do love the original though! I like the cover for The Replacement Wife but I know it's about a woman looking for a wife for her own husband. I think I might need a break from death and dying for a bit.
Nineteen? Jodi Piccoult is ... Jodi Piccoult. I know it will be well-written, but I'm not inspired.

Any helpful suggestions?
