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?
Now, on with this weeks W… W… W… Wednesday.
I am currently reading Fever: A Novel of Typhoid Mary by Mary Beth Keane. I grew up hearing the “Typhoid Mary” term and have used it to tease people who come to work or social situations hacking/sneezing, etc. But, I never knew the real story of Mary Mallon. It is interesting to read about the science of the time (much of which seems to be theory and conjecture). I am liking this so far.
I just finished The Dead in Their Vaulted Arches by Alan Bradley. Flavia is back and her life changes dramatically. Because this just came out and I don’t want to spoil anything, I won’t go into detail. But, I will say that the ending opens up great new possibilities for Bradley to have a lot of fun with Flavia in future books.
I’m making good progress on the Catch Up Reading Challenge 2014 list. (see below) So, I will probably grab one of the books on that list as my next. Which would you recommend? Leave me a comment.
