WWW Wednesday 6/22/11



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?

Then head on over to Should be Reading and leave a comment with a link to your post so others can see!

I'm currently reading:

Free image hosting at imagecave.comNylon Angel by Marianne de Pierres -- Fantasticfiction describes it thusly "Quentin Tarantino meets Blade Runner in an ultra-violent future world controlled by the media" Sounds fun and action packed, we shall see!
Free image hosting at imagecave.comThe Golden Acorn (Jack Brenin #1) by Catherine Cooper -- Jack Brenin's life is changed when he finds a golden acorn, could he be The One? A children's fantasy downloaded free from Amazon for Kindle, it still was free on Sunday, so check it out if you're interested.
Free image hosting at imagecave.comNarcissus in Chains (Anita Blake #10) by Laurell K. Hamilton -- It's been awhile since I've checked in with Anita, and I've got quite a few to catch up on now!
Free image hosting at imagecave.comKraken by China Mieville -- I picked this up to read along with the Fantasy Faction Book Club for June, it's the first by this author for me, and not something I normally would have chosen. I'm still struggling with this one, not even halfway yet. At this point I'm starting to consider not finishing it. It's not bad, it's just not really for me. We'll see.


Since last Wednesday I finished reading:

Free image hosting at imagecave.comImperium by Robert Harris -- The story of Roman Senator Cicero as told by his slave and secretary Tiro. I liked Pompeii by the same author, and also enjoyed this one, but I think more because I listened to it then read it. It is historical Roman political fiction, and I think it might have been a challenging read on it's own. Simon Jones is a wonderful narrator and really brought life to the characters, something I don't think I could have done in my head. I do recommend it, the story is good, but especially the audio version.
Free image hosting at imagecave.comAn Uplifting Murder (Josie Marcus, Mystery Shopper #6) by Elaine Viets -- A fun cozy mystery series where the main character is a mystery shopper by profession, and along with her friend Alyce, gets in all kinds of scrapes on the job. This time she's mystery shopping an upscale lingerie store where she runs into her old gym teacher, and receives another blast from the past when a not so friendly girl she went to school with appears, and is later found murdered.


Probably up next:

Free image hosting at imagecave.comKiss of the Rose by Kate Pearce -- Druids and vampires in the time of Henry VIII... interesting, no?

  1. There for a while, I was reading Anita Blake as fast as she could write them. Then, I don't know. It's like I hit a wall with her and just could not go on. I am curious how your return to her books go. And I can completely understand how you feel about the book "Kraken." I have not read it, but I have felt that way before. Stubborn me, after I get so many pages in, I feel like I've invested too much to just stop reading and never know how it ends :-) Still, there have been a few books I put down because they just were not right for me.

  5. The Mystery Shopper series looks interesting. I do enjoy a good cozy every so often.

    I leave and return to Laurell K. Hamilton but think I may be done now. There's so many other books I'd rather read.
