WWW Wednesday: 2010-05-19

WWW_Wednesdays icon It's Wednesday again and time to answer MizB's WWW ... WEDNESDAY meme from her Should be Reading blog.

  1. What are you currently reading?
  2. What did you recently finish reading?
  3. What do you think you’ll read next?

1. I'm reading Blue Diablo by Ann Aguirre, The Unbearable Lightness of Scones by Alexander McCall Smith, and Dead Witch Walking by Kim Harrison. Blue Diablo, which I'm reading in paperback, is the first book in a series starring Corrine Solomon, a psychic handler who can touch something and know its history. I'm reading Dead Witch Walking on my Kindle. It's also the first in a series, this time starring Rachel Morgan, a bounty hunter (and a witch) who decides to quit her job with the Inderland Runner Services and discovers that someone has put out a contract on her. To offset these two paranormal books, I'm listening to The Unbearable Lightness of Scones on audio CD. It's the fifth in McCall Smith's 44 Scotland Street series and every bit as zany as the earlier books.

2. On Monday, I finished reading King's Son, Magic's Son on the train from NYC to Tarrytown on Monday afternoon. This fantasy novel by Josepha Sherman has been on my bookshelf for a very long time, and I just hadn't gotten around to reading it. Let's face it—I had gotten to the point where I didn't really enjoy fantasy, so I wasn't reading it. But sometime last year, I stumbled across a couple of really good fantasy novels and was beginning to read more and more of it. So, I offered King's Son, Magic's Son in a swap over at BookObsessed and I'll be sending it off to Kanaye over the weekend.

3. I plan to start reading The Next Thing on My List by Jill Smolinski. I picked it up at Barnes & Noble last week when I just went "browsing" but wound up buying four books. The blurb on the back sounded good, making me think it's somewhat like The Bucket List. I should start it tomorrow, so I'll soon know if it's any good.
