WWW Wednesday(2)

WWW Wednesdays is hosted by MizB over at Should Be Reading. If you do a WWW Wednesday then please post your link in the comments and if you don't have a blog, you can just post the answers. And she asks that one answers these three questions:


  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you'll read next?


Currently Reading:


Fool Moon by Jim Butcher
Book 2 in the Dresden Files and I'm about 1/2 way through it and it is just as good as the first!

The Magicians by Lev Grossman
This book is really... weird. I don't quite know what to make of it yet. I'm really not that far into it, so we'll see what the rest brings.

This book has been described as an adult Harry Potter, or what would really be happening in Hogwarts, as it were.  And while I really don't like that kind of tag line, I do enjoy books with magic. And I'm reading it for Sword and Laser, so I have to get a move on with it.



Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers
Still reading this one, I was going to finish it yesterday, but I was too tired to stay awake any longer. I'm
65% through it so far and loving it. I love Ismae and how she wants to know if she can kill everyone, I've become of the same mind, why can't she just kill some of those people?







Recently Finished Reading:


American Gods by Neil Gaiman (5/5)
I really enjoyed this book and it was one of the few that I couldn't even think of reading anything else while I read this one. It was amazing and my full review can be found here.

The Colorado Kid by Stephen King (5/5)
This is the book that the SyFy show Haven is based on and I've been really wanting to read it but it took me forever to find a good copy of it. Anyway, though, I really loved it and this is the first book I finished during the Read-A-Thon.

Storm Front by Jim Butcher (5/5)
This is the first book in the Dresden Files series and I read it years ago, but couldn't remember anything that had happened. I loved it, this is one of those series that I can't wait to get through but also I don't want to finish them!

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (5/5)
It took me a while to finish this one just because I love the first paragraph of this book so very much. I read The Sign of Four and A Study in Scarlet earlier in the year and have been wanting to read this one for a while, now when can I read the next one...?

(It seems I read books I knew I'd like since all of them I gave 5/5 stars, but I did really enjoy them all).





Want to Read Next:

The Selection by Kiera Cass
I've heard amazing things about this one, as well. And I read Kiera's self-published book when it first came out. (It's called The Siren, and it had me sobbing, and I loved it to pieces). Anyway, I'm really excited to read this one. Also, I'm going to see her on Saturday for a book signing and I'd like to have it read for then.
The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa
I've been hearing amazng things about this one and I got it in the mail on Saturday and I've just been staring at it, wanting to read it. And, while I've only read one of Julie's other books, I really liked it. (Also, if you have the hardback, have you taken off the dust jacket? It's gorgeous, isn't it?)

  1. Some good choices. I try to read through the Sherlock Holmes collection every so often. AND, I also wasn't crazy about The Magicians, even though everyone loved it so!

    1. I'm not that far into it but so far I'm EH about it.
      Sherlock Holmes, though, love all the ones I've read and sure I'll love the ones I've yet to read. :)

    1. People seem to love it or just kind of be a little 'whatever' about it. So we'll see... :) (I don't even know yet!)

  4. I read The Magicians, and can't say I loved it - but it was probably because of the depressing main character - he's never happy is he?!

    2. I'm only 35 pages into it and I already noticed that! It is a bit annoying...
