W W W Wednesdays!!

WWW Wednesdays is is a meme hosted by Mizb at 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?
OK, here are my answers for this week:
i)Currently reading:
Tell Me No Secrets-Julie Corbin

Tell Me No Secrets 

A tense psychological thriller set against an instantly familiar domestic backdrop, that leaves you with the chilling feeling that this could happen to you. You won’t be able to put this down!!
I say no more!

ii) Recently finished:
One Day-David Nicholls

One Day (Vintage Contemporaries Original) 
  15th July 1988 Emma and Dexter meet on the night of their graduation. Tomorrow they must go their separate ways. So where will they be on this one day next year? And the year after that? And every year that follows?
I loved this book and kept thinking about Emma and Dexter long after the last page. You are left with the hallucinatory feeling that they’ve become as well know to you as your closest friends. Quite an intoxicating read.

iii) What will I read next?
I’m really looking forward to reading “What Should I do With My Life now?” (I’m just waiting for it to arrive in the post)
What Should I Do with the Rest of My Life?: True Stories of Finding Success, Passion, and New Meaning in the Second Half of Life

I love stories of people re-inventing themselves, following their passion (usually against the odds) , and moreso in the second phase of their life.
Altho’ I am from the UK, I live in Spain where the mentality is that your life is over once you hit 40! Employers don’t give you a second glance if you are over 40, and the Spanish government has said that if you are 40 and unemployed, you might as well consider yourself retired from hereonin!!! How ridiculous is that?  I find it infuriating and plan to give this book to all my Spanish friends (who read English!). Can’t wait to read this book.   

Would love to hear your comments.
