WWW Wednesday (May 1)

WWW Wednesday May 1W…W…W…Wednesdays is a weekly reading prompt hosted by MizB at Should be Reading. 


  1. What are you currently reading?
  2. What did you recently finish reading?
  3. 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…


About Paul H-C

Just an avid reader in the little town of Bangor, Maine (Yes, that Bangor...home of Stephen King). When I'm not reading and drinking coffee, I sell cell phones by the sea shore.
