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? “Bleeder (Apocalypto,#3) by L.K. Rigel-3rd book I have read on my Kindle….all 3 are in one big book together with the first two more novella length; Amazon has a membership thing kind of like NetFlix that you can get or try called Amazon Prime, I will not be buying it, but the first month is free so I have the first month so I could check out a book with their lending library. I checked out this Apocalypto series cause it sounded interesting and so far, it HAS been. Very Science Fiction, even though that’s usually not my thing…..they call this genre apocapunk, I believe….it took me awhile to get into the first one cause I’m not used to this genre, but once I did, it pulled me and hooked me. This is not a book I would have typically ever picked up and read if I didn’t have my Kindle…

What did you recently finish reading? “Space Junque”(Apocalypyto, #1) and “Spiderwork”(Apocalypto, #2), both by L.K. Rigel-These are both novellas, considered prequels to “Bleeder”, which I assume means you could just read the 3rd, but you would be very lost….The prequels really help you understand what’s going on in the 3rd

“11/22/63” by Stephen King-Stephen King at his best, if you ask me! I LOVED this book….I wanted to give it more than 5 stars on Goodreads. Within a couple hundred pages of the ending, I was really worried that he wasn’t going to be able to finish it without rushing through everything or making a sequel….at almost 900 pages, the fact that I was worried about him not finishing the story obviously clues you in on how much this story covers…there were seriously a million different ways he could have gone with the story line, but he ended up working things out nicely and neatly without any rushing and I was thrilled at how he did it…….It was an amazing book…..If you haven’t read it, you need to! Here is a premise for you: “If you could stop the assassination of J.F.K., would you? and how far would you go to do it?”

What do you think you’ll read next? I would love to give you a definite answer here, but I’m not sure…I might read another book on my Kindle, but I have about 30 saved on there, 99% of them free :)….I have 2 more books from Goodreads coming, but not sure WHEN and I have a few books I am wanting from the library that I might get sometime this week, so….I don’t know…you’ll have to wait until next week, I’m afraid!

• What are you currently reading? On Writing by Stephen King. I’m learning a lot. 🙂

• What did you recently finish reading? The Walking Dead Compendium One. It’s the first 48 issues of the comic book, and it was so good. I also finished Dark Places by Gillian Flynn. It was a good, but not always enjoyable, read.

• What do you think you’ll read next? I don’t know. I have several “real” books that I need to read, but the Kindle still has the new gadget appeal that is making it hard to pick up those real books. 🙂

“On Writing” is an awesome book by him! 🙂 I have it somewhere at my parents…..I didn’t know you could find a Compendium of the Comic Issues, where did you find yours? I would be interested in reading that. I LOVE the show and thought about reading the comics, but the idea of trying to locate ALL the comics that have already passed didn’t sound too fun…..
Never heard of Gillian Flynn, but that tile sounds intriguing, what’s it about? 🙂

Paula says:

I borrowed The Walking Dead from my cousin. I think he said that he bought it at Books-a-Million. 🙂 Dark Places is about Libby Day, whose mother and two sisters were killed when she was a child. Her brother went to jail for the murders and it was Libby’s testimony that helped to put him there. There is a Kill club (they are obsessed with real-life murder mysteries) that believes her brother is innocent, so Libby is investigating to find out the truth. It was really good.

Ok…I’ll have to look for it whenever I go out of town and can get to a bookstore that isn’t Walmart or Target….
Dark Places sounds interesting…might have to check it out! 🙂

Paula says:

I know how that is! It’s an hour or more to get to a bookstore from where I live. Thank God for Amazon! 🙂

I know! Same here! Too bad they don’t have it on Kindle! Darn!

I WILL have to read King’s book but I think I’ll wait a little. I’m not too ready to go after 900 pages right now.

It’s definitely a time consuming challenge, but so worth it when you’re ready! 🙂
