You just answer these three questions:
What did you finish reading?
What are you currently reading?
What are you planning to read next?

What did I finish reading?

Lizzy Speare and the Cursed Tomb by Ally Malinenko (review)
      Quite the adventurous book! Not only is it fun to read, it teaches Shakespeare and Mythology. View my Interview with the author!

Takers Economy: An Inquiry into Illegal File Sharing by Christopher Stewart (review)
      Very informative essay/book. Do you really know the truth and repercussions behind illegal downloading?

Torment (Fallen #2) by Lauren Kate (review)
      As we continue the story of Luce and Daniel, we're finding that Luce is evolving. Could things dramatically change and could she be happy without Daniel in her life?

What am I currently reading?

The Face Thief by Elli Gottlieb
      I'm only 15% through the book. The beginning started with Margot in present time, and then continues (with interruptions of the present) with the past as it shows how she got to where she's at and what happened to end her up in the hospital.

Play Him Again by Jeffrey Stone
      I'm 8% through this book. I was given this book by the author, as I do love a great historical fiction. The beginning started off very interesting and I really want to find out what happened to Danny and why he was killed. Taking place in the prohibition era, a.k.a the Roaring Twenties, this book set in California is (to me at least) reminiscent of Steinbeck and I can't wait to read more.

Coffee, Tea of Murder (Murder, She Wrote #27) by Donald Baine
      I'm 67% finished with this audiobook. So far it's a great Murder, She Wrote mystery done in true Jessica Fletcher style. An Airway owner is murdered with a knife to the back and as a man who was hated by so many, including his wife, how is one to go about solving his death? Jessica Fletcher, along with her buddy from Scotland Yard, George Sutherland, are on the case!

A Dance with Dragons (A Song of Ice and Fire #5) by George R.R. Martin
      I'm 3% (31 out of 1016 pgs.) done with this book. I love GRRM and the Song of Ice and Fire series dearly. I really hope this book makes me forget about the previous book (A Feast for Crows) which I didn't find all that stimulating. So far, Tyrion and Daenerys are back, so that's a good sign!

What am I planning to read next?

      I have almost 14 library books (in physical form) and 2 other library e-books checked out. (I'll post my most recent library run post later on.) I suppose the next few books I'll start on will be:

Partials (Partials #1) by Dan Wells

The human race is all but extinct after a war with Partials--engineered organic beings identical to humans--has decimated the population. Reduced to only tens of thousands by RM, a weaponized virus to which only a fraction of humanity is immune, the survivors in North America have huddled together on Long Island while the Partials have mysteriously retreated. The threat of the Partials is still imminent, but, worse, no baby has been born immune to RM in more than a decade. Our time is running out.

Kira, a sixteen-year-old medic-in-training, is on the front lines of this battle, seeing RM ravage the community while mandatory pregnancy laws have pushed what's left of humanity to the brink of civil war, and she's not content to stand by and watch. But as she makes a desperate decision to save the last of her race, she will find that the survival of humans and Partials alike rests in her attempts to uncover the connections between them--connections that humanity has forgotten, or perhaps never even knew were there.

Dan Wells, acclaimed author of "I Am Not a Serial Killer," takes readers on a pulsepounding journey into a world where the very concept of what it means to be human is in question--one where our humanity is both our greatest liability and our only hope for

Ultraviolet (Ultraviolet #1) by R.J. Anderson 

Once upon a time there was a girl who was special.

This is not her story.

Unless you count the part where I killed her.

Sixteen-year-old Alison has been sectioned in a mental institute for teens, having murdered the most perfect and popular girl at school. But the case is a mystery: no body has been found, and Alison’s condition is proving difficult to diagnose. Alison herself can’t explain what happened: one minute she was fighting with Tori—the next she disintegrated. Into nothing. But that’s impossible. Right?

      I started on Ultraviolet a month or so ago, but had to turn it back into the library because it was due, and somebody else had it on reserve. I really loved what I was reading, so I just had to pick it up when I saw it in the library again!

The Emerald Storm by William Dietrich

The year is 1803. Swashbuckling, ribald, and irreverent hero Ethan Gage has outsmarted wily enemies and survived dangerous challenges across the globe, from the wilds of the American frontier to the pyramids of Egypt. Now the rakish hero finds himself in the Caribbean with his wife, Astiza, on a desperate hunt to secure the lost treasure of Montezuma—a legendary hoard rumored to have been hidden from Cortés's plundering Spanish conquistadors. Hot on his heels are British agents who want the gold to finance a black slave revolt in Saint-Domingue, robbing hostile France of its richest colony. The French, too, seek the treasure for the secrets it contains, the key to an incredible new means of invasion that can ensure Britain's defeat—on its own land.

Caught between the French and the rebel slave forces, Ethan and Astiza are in a race for gold and glory that will thrust them into the center of a bloody struggle for freedom as they try to rescue their son. And this time, Gage's luck may be running out.

Brilliantly combining science, history, mythology, and wit, William Dietrich has woven a larger-than-life tale that sees Ethan embroiled in the Napoleonic era's ideals, opportunism, and inventions, which gave rise to the modern world. Filled with intrigue, voodoo, a hurricane, violent political unrest, and unexpected passion, The Emerald Storm is Dietrich's most captivating work to date.

    Happy Reading!

    Here's my WWW Wednesday

  3. Lizzie Spear sounds like a fun read. I do love a good book that deals with Shakespeare. =)I'm also hopelessly behind on my George RR Martin books...I wish they weren't so time consuming and that I wasn't distracted by other shiny books.

    My WWW Wednesday is here.

  4. Am I totally an idiot? I had no idea that 'Murder She Wrote' was also a book series. I remember watching it as a kid and loving it!

  5. lol! No not at all! I remember thinking the same thing when I first saw the books in my library... same goes for Perry Mason too! Now if I could only find a Matlock book series :D
    -Novel Reveries

    p.s I'm watching Murder, She Wrote on Hallmark channel as I type, lol!

  6. I'm laughing to see I'm not the only one who has to keep track by % read instead of page number!

    Came here with WWW Wednesday and am glad I did. I love the cover and premise of Play Him Again, Sam, and also the Lizzie Speare book!

  7. haha! Yes sometimes it makes me feel a little better to see my progress in percentage rather than pages :D Thanks!
