Happy Wednesday Everyone!
Man, I am just hitting the blogging hard today, aren’t I? Forgive my blabbing! I feel that since Nano is over, I really want to get back into the swing of things.
I haven’t been able to post as much as I’d like because of it, and I’m raring to read a ton o’ books and talk your ear off about how great they are!
In the next week, I plan on hitting the books hard. If I could afford to, I’d leave on a vacation somewhere, but alas that is not in the cards for me just yet (I have a writer’s retreat planned for October/November, so stay tuned on that). So a vacation of the mind it is!
Blabbing aside, let’s get things going with another round of WWW Wednesday!
This meme is a challenge that is currently handled by Taking On A World of Words, and anybody can participate.
Simply read the 3 W questions below and answer them:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
Following the Quake of ’79, a terrible force came to the city of St. Charles. This was the Living Poison.
In Lilac Chambers, it may have found the perfect host. As she finds herself changing, becoming increasingly dangerous to everyone around her, it becomes apparent that her state of being is no accident of nature. She is becoming a prime vehicle for the Living Poison’s destructive swath through the streets of St. Charles.
Detective Brandt McCullough has seen the Living Poison’s brutality. John Sutterfield, ringmaster of Sutterfield’s Circus of the Fantastic, is discovering its malignancy festering within the very circus he founded. These two are the only ones who might stand in the way of a force greater than anything they have ever known, one which threatens to wash the streets in red and swallow the city into chaos, but the stakes may be higher than either of them can imagine.
St. Charles—indeed, the world—may tremble.
Opinion so far:
I haven’t actually started this one quite yet since I finished Carnage this morning (and I forgot to bring it to work with me).
Still, I’ve been psyched about this book long before I ordered it in the mail. Tommy B. Smith and I met at Crypticon, and he was great to talk to.
I’ve also got an interview with him planned to go along with my book review, so that’s something to look forward to in the next few days.
Terrorist groups such as Abu Sayyaf and Jemaah Islamiyah have flourished in recent years with new recruits joining them and ISIS-affiliates at an alarming rate. Blended operations by various Asian countries have forced the groups to work together to identify a new operational base.
They seek an island nation to call home, one where they can plot against countries who oppose their ideals. They found a target, a small nation-state, perfect for their needs: The Republic of Singapore.
Before anyone can respond, the ambassadors of the United States, Great Britain, and Australia are kidnapped from their residences in Singapore. Right index fingers of each victim are sent as a warning. Any attempt to recover the ambassadors will result in the removal of additional body parts.
Bedlam Charlie team leader, Evelyn Evinrude, leads the group to rescue the ambassadors and capture the local leaders of Abu Sayyaf and Jemaah Islamiyah. Can Bedlam succeed or will events escalate, resulting in more deaths?
I just finished this book this morning, and it was my favorite in the Bedlam series. I feel like I’m more invested in the overall story now, and I hope the adventure will continue past this book!

My Thoughts Up Front
I have a few books on my list for this month, and I seriously hope I get to all of them.
For starters, I need to keep up with my Animorph reads.
Then I plan on reading Middlegame since I ordered it from the library.
I’m involved in the blog tour of The Devil’s Apprentice, and I’m super excited to give this new author (new to me at least) a read.
Then I’ve got Teri Polen’s The Gemini Connection, which I got in the mail last week.
There’s a lot of great interesting stuff, I just have to get to it.
That’s a Wrap!
All right everyone, that’s my WWW Wednesday for this week.
What’s your WWW Wednesday look like? Have you read any of the books on my list? Do you have any opinions or feedback on the books I chose? Feel free to share in the comments, and don’t forget to subscribe or follow my bookish journeys!
