WWW Wednesday: 15 October 2014

WWW_Wednesdays icon I love a vacation from work—it gives me plenty of time to read and to focus on the blog. Therefore, I think that it is time for another WWW...Wednesday post.

MizB hosts the WWW...WEDNESDAY meme from her Should be Reading blog. Each week, MizB asks three simple questions:
   1. What are you currently reading?
   2. What did you recently finish reading?
   3. What do you think you’ll read next?

and bloggers all over the world post their answers and link back to her blog.

Here are my answers:

1:  I'm listening to a fascinating book about past-lives: My Name is Memory by Ann Brashares. This adult novel from the author of the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series is intended to be the first of a trilogy. I'm about 80% of the way through it, enjoying it immensely, but probably won't finish it for a couple of weeks since I don't see any prolonged time in the car alone.

I picked up a copy of V is for Vengeance at the library on Monday morning. The Kinsey Millhone mystery series by Sue Grafton is one that I earmarked this year to catch up on. After this book, there's only one more and then I can wait until the next is published.

Lastly, I'm reading Entwined Realms, Volume 1, a compilation of the first four Entwined Realms stories by Danielle Monsch. The first story, a novel, is Stone Guardian, and I'm about half-way into it right now. I received a complimentary copy of the book from the publisher in return for an honest review. I hope to post that review on the blog next week.

2:  In the past week, I've completed two books. First was The Undead Pool by Kim Harrison. It's the penultimate book in her paranormal and urban fantasy series The Hollows. I'm already mourning the end of the series, though it will be several months before I can read the final book. The second book came highly recommended to me: The Gauguin Connection by Estelle Ryan. I read a lot of mysteries—right at half of the books I read each year—and the character of Genevieve Lenard is one of the most memorable I've ever met. There are four more books in the series (so far) and I am sure I'll be reading all of them.

3:  In the next couple of weeks, I'm going to be focusing on books purely for pleasure. Nihal of the Land of the Wind and Sennar's Mission are the first two books in Licia Troisi's Chronicles of the Overworld. When I borrowed them from the library, I had intended to read them right away. I got distracted by other books, however, and I've had to renew the loan. Also at a high priority is A Rising Thunder by David Weber. It is te 13th book in the main Honor Harrington series. Like the other books in the series, it is well over 800 pages long. I'm glad this book is on my Kindle since the hardback would be so very heavy.
