I feel better, so let’s get on with it!
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 American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History by Chris Kyle (with Scott McEwen & Jim DeFelice). I always find it intriguing to read about people that have the mental fortitude to go through grueling military training. I realized very early in life that the military would not be for me. It’s not that I wouldn’t fight for my country, I would if required. But, I don’t take being yelled at very well. So, the men and women who can endure this and make a career out of making the world safer for the rest of us, have my eternal gratitude.
In this book, Chris Kyle tells us about his training and service as a sniper in the Navy SEAL. These guys are badass! No doubt about it. They are highly trained machines and it amazes me how they do the job required of them.
I really enjoyed the stories he tells and the fact that the book includes passages from his wife that give the reader insight into her thoughts and concerns.
Last week, I finished The Death Cure by James Dashner — the last book in the Maze Runner series. I liked the series. Although, I thought some parts in the 2nd and 3rd books dragged a bit. I am, eventually, going to read the prequel. But, I have a bunch of other books to read first.
Speaking of other books, I am not sure what I will read next. Last Sunday, I went to B&N and picked up 3 new books. I got the next two “Ender” books by Orson Scott Card and a new-to-me steampunk book by Guy Adams. But, I also have The Perfect Nazi by Martin Davidson sitting o the TBR shelf. We’ll see what mood I am in, I guess.
Have a good week…
