It’s time for WWW Wednesday! This is a blog hop hosted by Sam over at A World Of Words. Link up with us by commenting on Sam’s post for today, and just answer the three questions.
- What are you currently reading?
- What have you recently finished reading?
I finished Edge of Darkness by K. L. Schwengel on a bus on Friday. It was a good conclusion to the series!
I followed this up with Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine. I’m glad that it’s only a few weeks until the sequel comes out! I want to spend more time in this world. I also want a book about Scholar Wolfe and Commander Santi as young men, but I don’t think that is likely, and that is a shame.
I also finished the audio of The Lost Life by Steven Carroll and good lord, I’m glad it was short. It had some pretty language and the story could have been really interesting, but it didn’t really go anywhere and it got quite repetitious at times. It’s kind of awkward reading a love scene where the two characters are described as having their mouths “glued together” multiple times in a few minutes.
- What do you think you’ll read next?
Sadly, I have not been able to read a book a day on my week off like I had intended, but that is because I have been preoccupied with other things I wanted to do, so there’s that. My next read will probably be I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga to see what all the fuss is about. 😛 Then I’ll probably read Nightshade by Maryrose Wood.
Borrow Box tells me that the audio of The Reluctant Assassin by Eoin Colfer will be available for me tomorrow, so I’ll make a start on that, too. Hope the audio is good!
And now for WIPpet Wednesday. This is another blog hop in which writers share excerpts from their current WIP that somehow relate to the date. Clicking the blue guy on the right will take you to the linkup for this one. This week, we’re back with Eli, who is getting some bad news that could land him in a lot of trouble.
“What is it?” Eli asked.
Maisie caught her breath and then said, “It’s the Princess, sir. She’s… she’s gone, sir.”
“What do you mean, gone?”
“She wasn’t in her bed, sir. I looked in some usual places, the library, and her parlour, but I couldn’t find her anywhere.”
“Is there anything else to suggest she’s disappeared? Maybe you’re just not looking hard enough.”
Maisie nodded her head, as if agreeing with his assessment, but then she added, “She’s taken clothes with her sir. And the secret door at the end of the passage, the one behind the tapestries? The one you never let her remember? It was open.”
Sometimes, Eli thinks this Princess might be more trouble than she’s worth. 😛
That’s it from me, see you on your blogs!
