WWW Wednesday 6-4-2014

Yes, it’s Wednesday, but first I’ve just got to share this amazing news. My book, This Crumbling Pageant, just got a 4.5 star review from RT Book Reviews. “Fantastic story!” I’m over the moon! RT doesn’t give 5-star reviews so…. yeah. Color me stardust & moonglow blissed!

Now, back to WWW Wednesday. This meme is from shouldbereading.

To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…

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

• What are you currently reading?

fitzosbornes at warI’m reading the third book in the Montmaray Journals,  The FitzOsbornes at War. What a terrific series. In the first book we find a tiny island nation off the coast of Spain with only a handful of inhabitants. A mad king who spends most of his time behind closed doors, a prince and two princesses, their housekeeper [madder than the king, truth be told] and her son, all living in a castle filled with relics of an earlier age, and in dire poverty and scraping along as best they can with less food and comfort than the handful of ‘subjects’ who still live on the island.

This doesn’t do it justice.

All I can say is World War II, Nazis, more name-dropping of major players of that time period than you can begin to list, all the pangs of young love, London, balls, the Blitz… all told through the three journals of Her Highness Sophia of Montmaray, Princess, and in this book, employee of the office that oversees food rationing in England. Honestly, I can’t describe these books. But I do like the heck out of them.

• What did you recently finish reading?

Miss Mabel'sI don’t think I mentioned this book when I was reading it, and I finished it recently. Miss Mabel’s School for Girls (Network Series #1). First off let me say that the magical world building is dark, intense and solid. However, I just am so distracted by the term “Network” in this context. It is just an “off” term in the context of a magical world, but oh well, minor in the general scheme of things. Good book, and I’m looking forward to more in this series.

It’s a very unusual cover. I like it.

 

• What do you think you’ll read next?

Hey, don’t judge. It’s research!

It’s odd that for a long time I could post whatever I wanted and not worry about it, but now there are people trying to figure out what happens next in The Fury Triad and I certainly don’t want to tip my hand here.

Just to be safe, if you’re reading the books and don’t want spoilers, close your eyes, stick your fingers in your ears and say, “La la la la la!” and pretend you never saw it. Deal? Deal!

 

What about you? What have you been reading lately? Put the link to your WWW Wednesday entry in comments, or just tell us!
