W…W…W…Wednesdays is a weekly reading prompt hosted by MizB at Should be Reading.
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?
I am currently reading The Doctor and the Rough Rider by Mike Resnick. It is an alternative history novel that mixes in a good measure of steampunk and a dash of magic, just to make it interesting. Historically, I have shied away from alternative history. But, Resnick mixes things up a bit to make it fun.
This week I finished City of Thieves by David Benioff. I really, really liked it. The interaction between the two main characters, Lev and Kolya, is more like that of the stereotypical older/younger brothers than prisoners that just met and have to work together to accomplish a task. I am terrible about going into depth with book “reviews” because, inevitably, I will drop a huge spoiler without even realizing it. So, I will just say, “If you have not read it, read it.”
I am not sure what I will be reading next. I did receive a copy of Mousetrapped by Catherine Ryan Howard. After reading this line, “Three big dreams, two Mouse Ears and one J-1 visa. What could possibly go wrong in the happiest place on earth?” on her blog, Catherine, Caffeinated, I couldn’t help but order it. There is a high probability that it’ll be next.
Until next week…
