WAYRW: The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend

What Are You Reading Wednesdays is a weekly meme hosted by It’s A Reading Thing.

Here’s how you play: Open the book you are currently reading to page 34 (or 34% in your ebook) and answer these three questions:

The Questions are:

  1. What’s the name of your current read?
  2. Go to page 34 in your book or 34% in your eBook and share a complete sentence. (or two!)
  3. Would you like to live in the world that exists within your book? Why or why not?

Now for my answers this week…

My book club is discussing The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katarina Bivald at the end of the month. I’m about halfway through it right now – it was kind of slow going to start but the further into it I get, the more invested in the story I become. Here’s a quote from page 34:

25573977“The only thing there seemed to be an abundance of was corn. At that time of year, the end of August, it towered around them in enormous fields. The bright sunlight transformed these fields into a swirling sea of gold and green that dazzled Sara, blazing in her eyes until Broken Wheel appeared almost as a relief. ”

This book’s universe pretty much is my universe in the sense that it’s not science fiction or fantasy. Do I want to live in a very small town in Iowa that is clearly suffering financially and is filled with largely reluctant readers? No probably not. We’ll see what Broken Wheel looks like by the end of the book though. Maybe Sara will end up doing them some good.

What are you reading?

    I’m interested to hear what you think of this book when you finish. I liked some of the characters, but the plot didn’t ever pick up enough for me.

      Finished it over the weekend. I liked it but didn’t quite love it. I almost loved it but I felt like I was kept at arms length emotionally if that makes any sense which is odd for a book with so much internal dialogue.
