WWW Wednesday (1-29-14)

WWW Wednesday 1-29-14The day began with sour milk and just got worse.”  Fever: A Novel of Typhoid Mary by Mary Beth Keane.

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:

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

    I’m really liking the look of Fever too, may have to check that one out. Also as a huge Stephen King fan you should definitely pick Mr Mercedes in my opinion! Here’s my link http://wp.me/p32hC2-yh
