Feel free to join in the fun and let the world know what you are reading.

The Three Ws are:

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

What are you currently reading?

Death at the Voyager HotelIn print, I am reading, Death at the Voyager Hotel by Kwei Jones-Quartey. I found this tiny book in the library as I was walking the stacks. Bonus points: it’s set in Ghana. I’ve never read a book set in Ghana before. I’m on page 88/156, so far so good.

 

 

Cry of the Sea (Juniper Sawfeather, #1)

I am also reading, Cry of the Sea by D.G. Driver. A YA fantasy novel. I was reading this last week as well. It’s really good. I’ve been so busy I haven’t had much time to read it.

 

 

What did you recently finish reading?

Dangerous to Know (Lady Emily, #5)Set in the lush countryside of Normandy, France, this new novel of suspense featuring Lady Emily Hargreaves is filled with intrigue, romance, mysterious deaths, and madness.

Returning from her honeymoon with Colin Hargreaves and a near brush with death in Constantinople, Lady Emily convalesces at her mother-in-law’s beautiful estate in Normandy. But the calm she so desperately seeks is shattered when, out riding a horse, she comes upon the body of a young woman who has been brutally murdered. The girl’s wounds are identical to those inflicted on the victims of Jack the Ripper, who has wreaked havoc across the channel in London. Emily feels a connection to the young woman and is determined to bring the killer to justice.

Dangerous to Know by Tasha Alexander, book 5.

I love this series. It’s one of the few historicals I enjoy.

 

What do you think you’ll read next?

Good question. I have several reading challenges I’m doing but only 1 ends in December. The others are long term. I need a time travel book. I think I will read either:

TimelineTimeline by Michael Crichton: In an Arizona desert, a man wanders in a daze, speaking words that make no sense. Within twenty-four hours he is dead, his body swiftly cremated by his only known associates. Halfway around the world, archaeologists make a shocking discovery at a medieval site. Suddenly they are swept off to the headquarters of a secretive multinational corporation that has developed an astounding technology. Now this group is about to get a chance not to study the past but to enter it. And with history opened up to the present, the dead awakened to the living, these men and women will soon find themselves fighting for their very survival — six hundred years ago.

 

or

The Eyre Affair (Thursday Next, #1)The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde- Great Britain circa 1985: time travel is routine, cloning is a reality (dodos are the resurrected pet of choice), and literature is taken very, very seriously. Baconians are trying to convince the world that Francis Bacon really wrote Shakespeare, there are riots between the Surrealists and Impressionists, and thousands of men are named John Milton, an homage to the real Milton and a very confusing situation for the police. Amidst all this, Acheron Hades, Third Most Wanted Man In the World, steals the original manuscript of Martin Chuzzlewit and kills a minor character, who then disappears from every volume of the novel ever printed! But that’s just a prelude . . .

 

Which should I read?
