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:
|Nylon 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!|
|The 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.|
|Narcissus 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!|
|Kraken 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:
|Imperium 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.|
|An 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:
|Kiss of the Rose by Kate Pearce -- Druids and vampires in the time of Henry VIII... interesting, no?|
