This is my first post joining the WWW Wednesday, hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. WWW Wednesday is simple: just answer these three questions:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
My answer to question one may sound like a “flex” at first, but it’s really because I have no self-control and some possible attention problems. Other than that, I’m perfectly happy with my slightly uneven five books at a time. So, what am I currently reading?
- The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker
- Reserved for the Cat by Mercedes Lackey
- In the Valleys of the Noble Beyond: In Search of the Sasquatch by John Zada
- Sixteen Horses by Greg Buchanen
- Island Queen by Vanessa Riley
What did you recently finish reading? I’m so glad you asked. It wasn’t that recent, a few weeks ago, mostly because of some gnarly migraines, but the last books I finished were two Mercedes Lackey novels from the Elemental Masters series (the same series Reserved for the Cat is from).
What do you think you will read next?
Interesting question, seeing as that can change from one moment to the next, although I have picked up some new books from the library that I am very interested in. I suppose, since I usually read five at a time, I’ll pick five possibilities (possibility being the key phrase, here, as I am apt to change my mind).
Home from the Sea is another novel in Mercedes Lackey’s Elemental Masters series, and as I’m completely loving the series, I will definitely be continuing it. Dark Archives: A Librarian’s Investigation into the Science and History of Books Bound in Human Skin is one of my choices as I attempt to add more non-fiction to my reading. However, as should be clear, I’m not into completely mundane subjects as far as non-fiction goes, as here I would be going from John Zada and Sasquatches (In the Valleys of the Noble Beyond) to books made out of human skin. I mean, I was trying to find something interesting.
Mossflower by Brian Jacques is a return to one of my all-time favorite series’ as a child, and I have not read since, as an adult. I find myself looking forward to this in almost the same way I did as a child. It will definitely be like visiting old friends.
Speaking of old friends, Kate Daniels is one of those to me, and Magic Bites by Ilona Andrews will also be a re-read. Much like my yearly forays into the Mercy Thompson series or the October Daye series, the Kate Daniels series has also become a yearly or bi-annual favorite.
The Last Hours by Minette Walters is about the Black Death or the Black Plague pandemics in the 1300s. It sounds fascinating and seems to have some compelling characters to boot. Plus, I do like reading historical fiction and non-fiction, so it definitely scratches that itch.
