W… W… W… Wednesdays

Image for weekly meme W... W... W...This weekly meme, hosted by MizB, over at ‘Should Be Reading’, is a snapshot of where I am at in my reading schedule.

To play along, just answer the following three questions…

• What are you currently reading?
• What did you recently finish reading?
• What do you think you’ll read next?

.

As I probably won’t be able to contribute every week, I have taken the liberty of adding in a couple more W…’s, which came to mind.

What are you currently reading?

‘Edge Of The Past’ by Jennifer Comeaux

Amazon ImageEmily’s skating career and personal life have never been more golden.

She and her partner Chris have won every competition they’ve entered this season, and she’s found the man of her dreams in her coach Sergei.

But when one of the biggest competitions of the year takes Emily and Sergei to Russia, Sergei’s past explodes into the present and makes Emily doubt everything in their future.

What did you recently finish reading?

‘Mags And The AARP Gang’ by Nancy Lynn Jarvis

Mags and her gang of renegade octogenarians have a deadline. They have to rob Bayside Community Bank, the bank about to foreclose on the mobile home park where they live, by a week from Friday so they can pay off the mortgage and save their homes. They’ve cased the joint, planned carefully, assembled their disguises, rehearsed their every move — what could possibly go wrong? Plenty.

Some people think they can take advantage of the elderly. They haven’t met Mags and the AARP gang or they’d know better. Sure, they’re older, but not too old for the adventure of a lifetime or to risk everything for the sake of friendship.

What do you think you’ll read next?

‘Dream Caster’ by Najeev Raj Nadarajah

Amazon ImageHaunted by memories of his massacred settlement, sixteen year old Weaver seeks cover in a hidden refuge among the remains of a ruined city once known as Toronto. In the midst of building a new life, Weaver discovers he can do something strange: cast dreams into reality. Convinced it’s just an anomaly, Weaver ignores it. That is until he learns of a mysterious man who harnesses the ability to animate nightmares into existence; the very man who ruined his world. The peaceful life Weaver hoped for begins to unravel as waves of chaos begin to break loose about him. In a race against time, Weaver must learn to cast aside his denial of being a dream caster to master the accursed ability that has befallen him, before his new home is destroyed and humanity’s pushed to the brink of extinction.

Life couldn’t possibly get any worse. Or perhaps, it could…

What was the last book you reviewed?

‘Bohemia’ by Veronika Carnaby

Amazon ImageDon’t miss out on Carnaby’s thrilling new read for the modern beatnik, in which she provides a wild, unrestrained account of ’60s counterculture youth bursting out of their creative shells. In her debut novel, Veronika Carnaby picks up where the Beat Generation left off. Set in 1960, Bohemia chronicles a group of twenty-somethings who defy the “ideals” of a mid-twentieth century society to seek creative fulfillment. In the process, they spotlight the creative path that artists of all mediums tread, all the while depicting the challenges faced by youth in the decade that changed the world.

In this gritty crime thriller a family vacation takes a vicious turn when a fishing camp is invaded by four armed men.  With nothing except her brains, her will, and the element of surprise on her side, Alison must kill or watch her family die – and then things get worse.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.

    • Hi Naida,

      I am still reading ‘Edge Of The Past’, although I am almost finished. I have thoroughly enjoyed this sequel to ‘Life On The Edge’ and look forward to reading the final part in the trilogy ‘Fighting For The Edge’. There is also an ‘adults only’ free on-line download of Sergei and Emily’s wedding night titled ‘Reaching The Edge’. All in all an excellent series, which I think you would probably enjoy.

      ‘Primal’ was right up my street and up there with my all time favourite psychological thrillers. It was true edge-of-the-seat reading, from the very first page to the very last. My review is started on this one, so shouldn’t be too much longer before publishing.

      Thanks for taking the time to stop by, it is always good to speak with you.

  • As a person who has vivid dreams I really like the sound of Dream Caster. And having heard a lot of mixed reviews I’m looking forward to reading what you made of ‘Mags And The AARP Gang’

    • Hi Tracy,

      Fantasy isn’t a gene that I read an awful lot of, however this one does sound quite intriguing, with both it and its sequel ‘Dreamweaver’, gathering some pretty impressive review and ratings stats.

      I don’t sleep all that well or for very long these days, so I very seldom dream, however when I do, the dreams are generally very vivid and never very pleasant, so I usually either wake up in tears, or hubbie has to wake me gently from a deep sleep and dream sequence.

      I actually really enjoyed ‘Mags …’ and despite some of the funnier, senior moments in the storyline, the underlying pathos of the groups situation I could totally relate to and sympathise with. The review won’t be too far away … I hope!

      Thanks for stopping by.

    • Hi You Again!

      I am on my way over now to take a look, I am never one to pass up the chance of a free read and the opportunity to promote an author and book.

      Thanks for the ‘heads up’.
