WWW Wednesday 7/06/11



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 skipped last week because there just wasn't much of a change, but I'm back this week!

I'm currently reading:

Free image hosting at imagecave.comRadiant Shadows (Wicked Lovely #4) by Melissa Marr -- My current audiobook, and another excellent teen paranormal series. This one is about fairies, but these are not cute flitting and glittery fairies, they're seductive and dangerous. Another highly recommend!
Free image hosting at imagecave.comNarcissus in Chains (Anita Blake #10) by Laurell K. Hamilton -- Still working on this one, will probably finish it up this week as it's my primary read at the moment. Does anyone else just want to slap Richard? He's so hot and cold and moody! Every time he almost comes around, he does something low that you just want to throttle him for! I've always liked Jean-Claude better!


In the last 2 weeks I finished reading:

Free image hosting at imagecave.comMy Soul to Keep (Soul Screamers #3) by Rachel Vincent -- Teen Paranormal featuring Banshees, very good! This one tackles drug addiction and loss of control, but in a great paranormal setting. Highly Recommend this series!
Free image hosting at imagecave.comNylon Angel by Marianne de Pierres -- I've already passed this one along to a friend, as I recall the cover of the book called it a cross between Mad Max and Blade Runner, and I can see that. It was good, but doesn't really stick out for me. It's a gritty, violent and action packed story set in a future Australia.
Free image hosting at imagecave.comThe Golden Acorn (Jack Brenin #1) by Catherine Cooper -- Jack Brenin is sent to live with his granddad after his mother dies, and while an initial encounter with some not so nice boys makes him doubtful of his future there, his life changes drastically when he finds a golden acorn, and a secret world is opened to him. I would recommend this for young fans of Narnia and Harry Potter, it's a good children's fantasy with talking animals, some mythology and some time travel. I enjoyed it, and got it free for Kindle on Amazon
Free image hosting at imagecave.comKraken by China Mieville -- I had to give up on it, there are just too many other things I'd rather be reading.


Probably up next:

Free image hosting at imagecave.comAssassin's Apprentice by Robin Hobb -- This is the July read for Fantasy Faction, and I think it will be a lot more to my taste than Kraken was!
Free image hosting at imagecave.comKiss of the Rose by Kate Pearce -- Druids and vampires in the time of Henry VIII... interesting, no?

  5. Kraken sounds positively ridiculous -- so I'll probably pick it up. :)

    I'm a huge fan of the fantasy genre. Are you enjoying your foray into it?
