WWW Wednesdays November 28th

Happy Wednesday!  Play along with MizB at Should Be Reading and answer the following questions:  What did you just finish, What are you currently reading and What are you reading next?

I haven’t finished much because of the holiday.  In fact…I only finished one book, Legends of Darkness by Georgia L. Jones, a warrior vampire book which was a fun deviation from the normal urban fantasy vampire book.

I am currently reading Dark Halo by Christopher Kokoski which is a mile a minute, good vs evil, apocolyptic storm craziness that has totally grabbed me.  I am also reading The Paris Wife by Paula McLain which I am really loving (they are now living in Paris and hanging with Gertrude Stein) and Grave Mercy (His fair assassin #1) which I just picked up at the library.  That is fun but I am currently bogged down in a politics heavy section so the action of Dark Halo has had a stronger allure.

Next up will be Vine: An Urban Legend by Michael Williams and maybe a mystery.  I haven’t read a pure thriller/mystery in a bit, maybe a JD Robb, I think I am up to #4.  But who knows!

What goodies are you guys reading this week?

About ocdreader

I love to read! I always have a book or four going, I have more books in my to-be-read pile than I can read in a year and yet I continue to haunt the bookstores. I have a problem, but I somehow soldier on. I enjoy talking books, so pass on your recommendations and thoughts - I would love to hear them.

  1. Interesting titles you have here. I’m always on the lookout for vampire/Gothic stories and just recently bought “The Wordsworth Book of Horror Stories” (over 1,000 pages!) and I’m enjoying it a lot so far. Also reading the last pages of “The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake”, which I also like, even if not as much.
    Your comment about “The Paris Wife” reminded me of Hemingway’s “A Moveable Feast”. Have you read it?

      Ooh, those books sound good, I love the lemon cake title!! I haven’t read A Moveable Feast, but after Paris Wife I am going to try to pick up some of his earlier works that would coincide with this story, I am also going to pick up Midnight in Paris, the Woody Allen movie that includes all the big names from this time – should be fun 🙂

      • I hope you’ll enjoy “A Moveable Feast” I know I did – all that “dolce vita”, just going out to eat in little cafes and drink wine and just talk…a beautiful book… I’ve watched “Midnight in Paris” and loved it! Now I want to watch “To Rome with Love”, another one of Woody Allen’s films.

        Oh I am so excited 🙂 Thank you!

  2. I don’t think I’ve heard of any of these books! But Dark Halo sounds interesting!

  3. Those books sound right up my alley! I hope you’re enjoying all of them. Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Dark Halo sounds good, I’ve not read much fantasy lately but I definitely want to. Thanks for commenting on my WWW 🙂

    I have The Paris Wife out from the library at the moment, but am having trouble finding a copy of A Moveable Feast (I really wanted to read them together). I’m looking forward to getting to read it soon, though! Enjoy.

    • ocdreader says:

      Delia just recommended A Moveable Feast too – I am going to have to check out the library today to see if I can read them together too! Sounds like a must 🙂

    I loved The Paris Wife. I knew little about Hemingway’s life so wasn’t sure how accurate the novel was, but a friend who knows a lot about him said it’s an exceptionally well-researched book. I also loved Grave Mercy–just finished it today. I think I’m a little bit let down by finding out that rather than a trilogy, it’s three books following three different girls. But I’m sure I’ll like the others, too.

      I am almost finished with it and am rivited! I heard the second one is about Sybella – and that should be interesting cause her character fascinates me!! I don’t know much about Hemingway’s life either, but it is well done and I am enjoying it a ton!

    The Paris Wife I saw it nominated by Goodreads, is it good?
    Thanks for visiting!

    I’m up to my eyeballs in paperwork – car stuff, house stuff, insurance stuff … I’d much rather be reading a novel (you lucky thing) 😉

  9. WooHoo, Grave Mercy is amazing. Can’t wait to see what you think. I too have been busy with holiday stuff.
