WWW Wednesdays 4/27

WWW Wednesday is a book meme run by Taking on a World of Words.

I’m trying to get more into the habit of writing on here and thought this blog hop might be a great way to do it. Every week I’m going to try to jump on here and talk about the week’s books. So let’s get to it shall we?

What are you currently reading? As usual, I can’t stick with one book so I have a few going on. I’m reading Lady Bridget’s Diary by Maya Rodale which is the first in a new series which seems to be taking place right after her Wallflower series. I also need to make some progress on When Everything Changed by Gail Collins. I got sidetracked and need to jump back in. I also started All the Birds in the Sky by Charlie Jane Anders during the readathon and I’m enjoying it so far.

What did you recently finish reading? After the readathon, I finished Borderline by Mishell Baker which was phenomenal. I’ve been reading urban fantasy for more than ten years now, this is something new. The main character Millie lost her legs in a suicide attempt as well as her career and while she’s recovering she gets a visit from Caryl who is part of the Arcadia Project who wants her to join them. If that organization name doesn’t make you suspicious, well, I’m gonna need you to watch Season 4 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (I know, not their best, but I’m making a point here). The plot was engaging and Millie is a character that’s not perfect, something that urban fantasy doesn’t like to do with their heroines, so it’s refreshing. I can’t wait to see where this series takes us. I also finished Winterwood by Jacey Bedford. With a main character who was a cross dressing lady pirate with magical mojo, who crosses paths with ghosts and shapeshifters, and other fantastical creatures in Mad King George’s England, what could go wrong? The sequel comes out in January and I’ll be preordering.

What do you think you’ll read next? Sex with Shakespeare by Jillian Keenan. Naughty with literature? Pretty much my brand. I also have to read Ancient, Ancient by Kiini Ibura Salaam for the book club.

 

What does your book life look like this week?

  1. I’ve never read any urban fantasy but I want to. I have a book idea that would fall into that genre so I need to see what others are doing with it. Happy reading and thanks for participating in WWW Wednesday!
