It’s WWW Wednesday. This meme is from shouldbereading.

• What did you recently finish reading?

THE CLOCKWORK CROWN by Beth Cato.  It’s the follow-up to her debut THE CLOCKWORK DAGGER, and I got my hands on an advance copy.

Spoiler: I liked it.  A lot.  The steampunk aspects are blended really well with the more magical/mythical elements, the characters have breadth and depth (my favorite character is actually a horrible, horrible human being, but you know why they’re horrible, and it’s not okay but you accept that about them), and the…whoops, that would be an actual spoiler.

I don’t know that Beth’s going on my autobuy list just yet, but she’s definitely on the “pay attention” list.

 

• What are you reading now?

Kathy Reichs’ DEJA DEAD.  It’s one of the 24 bought-but-unread books I packed and brought with me when I moved, and came up on rotation.  It’s interesting, having watched BONES on and off again for years, to finally read the source material….

• What do you think you’ll read next?

*eyes the “bought-but-unread” shelf*  I probably should get to ANCILLARY JUSTICE soon, before I’m the last person in skiffydom who hasn’t read it…
