WWW Wednesdays is a meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. What you do is answer the following three questions:
What are you currently reading?
I've been reading For Keeps, by Aaron Paul Lazar, in preparation for my first ever book blog tour coming up the weekend of September 14. It's a mystery with a slight paranormal twist, and so far an enjoyable one. I'll just say that Lazar is a very good writer and a nice guy as well. You'll have to wait a week and a half to learn more.
What did you recently finish reading?
I finished Steven Lee Gilbert's A Lovely, Indecent Departure, and I've got to say that while I was on the fence for the first 70 pages or so, because there were some very good scenes early on, the book just didn't work for me in the end. I think the main problem is that the reader never finds out what motivates these characters to behave the way they do, and so they end up feeling lifeless and flat. Here's my review.
What do you think you'll read next?
A fellow blogger, Lianne, has invited me to join a Goodreads group where you read all of the books on the Goodreads compatibility test. This month is Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut. I listened to it on disc a year or so ago, but I liked it so much I'll look for a copy to re-read it.
