W...W...W... Wednesdays & What Are You Reading Wednesdays

W... W... W... Wednesdays
W...W...W... Wednesdays is a weekly meme hosted by Jenn at A Daily Rhythm. Be sure to link up to her so others can see what your reading.

To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions..
1.What are you currently reading?  
2.What did you recently finish reading? 
3.What do you think you'll read next? 

1.What are you currently reading? Jane by April Lindner - Goodreads
2.What did you recently finish reading? Cursed by Fire by Danielle Annett - Review
3.What do you think you'll read next? The Secret Diamond Sisters by MIchelle Madow - Goodreads

What Are You Reading Wednesdays
Hosted by It's A Reading Thing

How it works

Grab the book your currently reading and answer the following questions.

1. What's the name of your current read?
2. Go to page 34 in your book or 34% in your eBook and share one complete sentence. 
3. Would you like to live in the world that exists within your book? Why or why not?

1. Jane by April Lindner - Goodreads

She motioned me to hurry in. “Nico’s back,” she told me, sotto voce. “Usually he lets us know when he’s coming home. This time… total surprise!” She looked and sounded flustered. “Usually I have days to make sure the house is in order. The cook isn’t even here.”
Can’t he make himself a sandwich? I wanted to ask. “It’ll be all right,” I told her, but she looked at me strangely. “Right. I don’t know the first thing about him — but until now you’ve made him sound like a pretty understanding boss.”
“I know it’s your day off, and I’ll really owe you one, but can you please take care of Maddy so I can track down the cook?”

3. Well I don't know if I would want to be a nanny for a rock star but it could be fun. Living in a beautiful mansion. 
How about you? How are you coming on your reading?

  1. Not a blogger, but I'm bored, so I'm gonna comment anyway :D Besides, the post looks very lonely. Gotta give it some company! Okay, enough nonsense, onto the questions!

    1. What are you currently reading? I'm reading Dearly, Beloved by Lia Habel (so sad that book 3 is indefinitely postponed, but it's good that she's getting to a better state emotionally)
    2. What did you recently finish reading? The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson (*dying* for book 2, but I'm on the waitlist for it from my library)
    3. What do you think you'll read next? Probably At the House of the Magician by Mary Hooper. I have two other books that slightly interest me more, but they're not as close to the return date for the library. Liv Forever by Amy Talkington and Pieces of Me by Amber Kizer

    Second part of this - my current read is Dearly, Beloved
    2) The bony woman's cracked lips curled back in a sneer. "You'll know soon enough. On that note, how are you and that little piece of meat getting along? What was her name? Nora?"
    Anger started to sting my lips and cheeks - my skin trying to flush. Another clap of thunder rang out, as if the atmosphere itself sympathized. "Meat?"
    (I did put more than a sentence, but this stuff won't make much sense without a little more context. And if anyone's wondering, it's a zombie novel. The piece of meat mentioned is his girlfriend.)
    3) I'd at least go check it out. It sounds like a really interesting world, this time in the future after severe weather changes and war destroyed so much. .The society chose to model their culture on Victorian England, with all the social constraints of the time. But, it's more of a steampunk version of Victorian England. New Victoria. All sorts of cool technology in place - they don't even really build homes to be pretty, instead using projections onto the surface for looks. It would suck being at risk because of the zombie/human conflicts (or just zombie/zombie), taking out casualties. But I'd still want to at least visit and check it out. In this world, zombie doesn't not necessarily mean the mindless creatures we usually think of. Those tend to get killed right after reanimation. The zombies living either turned somewhere that a bullet to the head wasn't a possibility or they came back with their senses and personality mostly intact (the longer the brain's dead, the more changed they can end up being upon reanimation). It's like anything else though - there are good people and bad people. Good or bad zombies, there's still a choice in how to behave and if remorse is felt for anything done in the name of survival. (I really like this series, can you tell? :D)
