WWW Wednesday and Goodreads Giveaway

Hump day means it's time for another round of WWW Wednesdays, hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.

To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…
  1. What are you currently reading?
  2. What did you recently finish reading?
  3. What do you think you’ll read next?   

 What are you currently reading?

Really enjoying both of these so far!

What did you recently finish reading?

I received a review copy of this book through the Knights of the Round Table group on Goodreads. I'm glad I did as it's a creepy and suspenseful read and I'm looking forward to reading more from Renee.

What do you think you'll read next?

I'm really excited for next week's launch party for Boomtown Craze, the third volume in the Backworlds series by M. Pax. Yay, Mary!  

Have you read any good books lately? What's on your TBR list?

Finally, since we're on the subject of books and reading, I wanted to share that I am holding my first Goodreads giveaway and will be giving away three paperback copies of Polar Night. If you'd like to enter, just go here:

  12. @LD, that sounds like a good one. I am going to check that out, I haven't heard of Sharon Short.

  13. Ooh lots of good reads there! Haven't had time to pick up a book, but i have been listening to my audiobooks regularly :)

  15. Hi Julie,

    Thanks for stopping by Fiction Books today. I love 'meeting' new people and always appreciate visits and comments.

    I quite like the sound of 'One Good Dog' and have added that to my reading list, so thanks for highlighting that one.

    I also love the premise for your own book 'Polar Night' and wish you every success with it. Unfortunately, I am not in the US, so am not eligible for the 'Goodreads' giveaway, however I shall be keeping an eye open for a copy of the book.

    I see from your bio., that you enjoy the 'Thomas Lynley books by Elizabeth George, so we have somwthing in common there. I don't know if it has ever aired in the US, but many of the stories were adapted for television here in the UK and I have watched them time and time again without tiring of them.

    I hope that your week is going well,


  16. I have entered. But how do you make one of those on Goodread? The enter to win thingie?

  19. I am reading Every Day, by David Levithan and just finished Daughter of Smoke and Bone, by Laini Taylor. Loved Smoke and Bone :) Looking forward to the movie next year.

  20. I just finished the third book in the Brotherband Chronicles by John Flanagan, I'm reading about five books at once but the one that's holding my attention is a loan from a friend called The Prophet. Next . . I'm not sure yet.

  21. I'm reading A Fallow Heart by Linda Kage, a contemporary romance that I'm enjoying very much.

    I just finished a Chicago mystery by Libby Fischer Hellmann titled Easy Innocence that I liked a lot.

    Not sure what I will read next, but I'm thinking either Unearthly by Cynthia Hand or Born of Fire by Heather McCorkle.

  22. I'm hooked on Vikings at the moment. Reading about Vikings in Ireland, 9th century. Can't help it, historical fiction is my favorite genre to read.

    And, wow, Mary has another release coming? She's a very busy writer. :)
