The Three Ws are:

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

Lately, the books I’m reading seem to take much longer than I expected. I like the books but they seem to be a bit slow. I don’t know if it’s me or the style of writing– heck it could be my crazy life.

What are you currently reading?

Dangerous to Know (Lady Emily, #5)As usual, I’m reading two books. In print I am reading, Dangerous to Know by Tasha Alexander, but 5 in theLady Emily series. I could not remember if I’ve read this book, when picked it up at the library. After starting it, I remember I have but I love her writing so I’m going to reread it. My goal is to read them all 🙂

 

 

Cry of the Sea (Juniper Sawfeather, #1)On my Kindle, I am reading Cry of the Sea by D.G. Driver, book 1 in the Juniper Sawfeather series. I’ve only just started this book but i”m really enjoying it. The plot holds a special place in my heart. The story starts with an oil spill on the Washington (i think) coastline. Our beautiful Gulf Coast suffered a terrible oil spill in 2010, so reading a similar story brings back lots of terrible images.

 

 

What did you recently finish reading?

One of my reading goals this year was to read a wider variety of mystery novels. Not just the light, fun cozies I love. Also not just Southern mysteries. With that in mind, I just finished reading Snakeskin Shamisen by Naomi Hirahara. I loved Mas and the other characters but I had to make sure I gave the book my total attention or I would get lost.

Snakeskin Shamisen (Mas Arai, #3)Few things get Mas more excited than gambling, so when he hears about a $500,000 win–from a novelty slot machine!–he’s torn between admiration and derision. But the stakes are quickly raised when the winner, a friend of Mas’s pal G. I. Hasuike, is found stabbed to death just days later. The last thing Mas wants to do is stick his nose in someone else’s business, but at G.I.’s prodding he reluctantly agrees to follow the trail of a battered snakeskin shamisen (a traditional Okinawan musical instrument) left at the scene of the crime…and suddenly finds himself caught up in a dark mystery that reaches from the islands of Okinawa to the streets of L.A.–a world of heartbreaking memories, deception, and murder.

What do you think you’ll read next?

MaliceAnother book out of my comfort zone, Malice by Keigo Higashino, book 4 in the Kyoichiro Kaga series. I don’t know much about it but it has a pretty cover 🙂
