WWW Wednesdays

WWW Wednesdays is a weekly event hosted by Shouldbereading.wordpress.com


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



What did I recently finish reading?
Two things, Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James and The Wind Through the Keyhole by Stephen King
I must say, this book lead me down a stray path of false security. The book started off well enough and interesting, then slammed me against a wall and assaulted my mind. Ha, I kid with metaphors, but in all honesty, it's not the book I thought it was. Thank goodness I only borrowed it (via kindle) from my library.



The Wind Through the Keyhole confused the heck out of me. In the beginning Stephen King writes a letter to his readers saying that we could definitely jump into the middle of the Dark Tower series with this book; I disagree. I was confused from beginning to end. The cover illustration is absolutely beautiful, I must say, and was the main reason I picked up this book from my library. I'm not too sure I'll start on his Dark Tower series anytime soon, but when/if I do, I keep this book in mind as #4.5 of the series.
What am I currently reading?
The Dirty Secret by Brent Wolfingbarger was sent to me by the author for review, and so far, so good. I haven't been this much involved in politics and law since my AP Government class in high school. Granted, I'm not the most affluent when it comes to politics, but I can really get into it when given the right motivation. The book follows several stories that connect through the conferred differences with an upcoming election, including scandal, blackmail and faulty voting. Here is the summary taken from goodreads.com:
The difference between victory and defeat in the Electoral College comes down to 259 votes in West Virginia.

A state senator desperately fights back against a lawsuit that is pushing his family’s company toward bankruptcy.

A vice presidential candidate’s adulterous affair threatens to explode in his face and burst into the world’s headlines with devastating consequences.

A ruthless billionaire will stop at nothing to avoid facing justice for his crimes.

A small town prosecutor stumbles upon a plot to win the election by any means necessary: High-tech manipulation of electronic voting machines, creative interpretation of arcane election laws, bribery, blackmail and even murder.

And Rikki Gudivada and Dave Anderson – two star-crossed former lovers from opposite sides of the political fence – are drawn back together as the battle rages for West Virginia’s 5 electoral votes, racing to solve a murder that imperils the very heart of America’s constitutional system while each struggles over the same question:
Is anything more important than winning the White House?
What do I think I'll read next?
Well, as you may have seen in a previous post, I have just borrowed a lot of books from my library. I also have some ebooks on request from my library's digital borrowing site. If I finish The Dirty Secret before any of my books come to me from my request list, I believe I'd like to start on City of Ashes (The Mortal Instruments #2) by Cassandra Clare.
I recently read the first in the series (City of Bones) and I quite enjoyed it. I know I'll get lost in City of Ashes, just as I did in the previous book, and I'll get through it fast before starting on the third in the series, City of Glass. I also want to read and finish these books because I don't believe I can renew this, since they are popular and in high demand at my library.



So now that you know more about my current reading situation, what about you?
