WWW Wednesdays

WWW Wednesdays is a weekly bookish meme formally hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm, and revived by Sam of Taking on a World of Words. This meme consists of answering the following three questions:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you’ll read next?

What am I currently reading?

Last night I started reading the eighth book in the Kitty Norville series, Kitty Goes to War, by Carrie Vaughn.  I’m already about halfway done and I’m liking it. Not quite as much going on in it as the last couple, but not every book in a series can be chalk full of stuff. Plus, the overall plot is actually fairly interesting in itself so I’ll give it that.


What did I recently finish reading?

65111I finished up reading Kitty’s House of Horrors by Carrie Vaughn, the seventh book in the Kitty Norville series. And I finally (FINALLY) finished reading the eleventh book in the A Series of Unfortunate Events series, The Grim Grotto by Lemony Snicket. Like I mentioned last week, this one’s been taking me awhile but that’s my own fault…so yeah. Only two more books in this series and then I’ll be all ready to watch the upcoming show Netflix is basing on this fun and grim series! Still not quite sure when it’s actually going to air though. Has anyone heard anything?


What do I think I’ll read next?

Next up I’ll be reading the twelfth book in the A Series of Unfortunate Events series, The Penultimate Peril, by Lemony Snicket. As mentioned above, this is the second to last book in this series and I’m really hoping all of the major questions that have come up throughout the books – and there’s quite a lot of them – will be answered! Maybe not in this book, but at least by the end of the series.

I just finished two books last night, so at this exact moment I’m not reading anything. But I’m planning on starting the eighth book in the Kitty Norville series, Kitty Goes to War by Carrie Vaughn, tonight, so I’ll just do a teaser from that.

My teaser:

I sat at my desk, my monitor and microphone in front of me, maps and notebook paper spread over the whole surface. I was writing down addresses and marking points on the map as people called in.
“So you’re saying it burned down and nobody could find out why?” I asked Pam from Lexington.
“That’s right,” she said. “My friend Stacy who’s kind of a witch said it’s because it’s on a crossroads, and something demonic must have happened there, one of those deal-with-the-devil-type things, and the energy overflowed and incinerated it. Could she be right?”

65111I am currently reading Kitty’s House of Horrors by Carrie Vaughn, the seventh book in the Kitty Norville series. I’m also still….STILL reading The Grim Grotto by Lemony Snicket, the eleventh book in the A Series of Unfortunate Events series. I really need to get my ass in gear and finish up this one. It’s good, but like I’ve mentioned, the Kitty Norville series is drawing me in a bit more at the moment….xD Plus, as I mentioned in my TT post, I’ve also been happily binge watching the anime, Gintama. It’s super good.


What did I recently finish reading?

4894646Kitty Raises Hell, by Carrie Vaughn, the sixth book in the Kitty Norville series. I finished this one up just the other day. This one, like the one before it, had a lot going on and the overall plot is steadily growing and growing. Once again, I’m excited to see where Vaughn takes this series and if I’ll actually like the ending – because a lot of the times I don’t.

 


What do I think I’ll read next?

I’ll be continuing with the eighth book in the Kitty Norville series, Kitty Goes to War, by Carrie Vaughn.  After I finish up the seventh book I’ll be about halfway done with this series. Hopefully the books just keep on getting better!

I am STILL currently reading the eleventh book in the A Series of Unfortunate Events series, The Grim Grotto by Lemony Snicket. Yes, I’ve been plugging away at this book for awhile now but, the Kitty Norville series has still been holding my interest at the moment, plus I started watching the anime series, Gintama, so I’ve been binge watching it whenever I have free time. There’s just so many episodes to watch… @_@

“I don’t feel very lucky,” Klaus said. “I feel trapped. How will we get out of here?”
“There’s only one way, Violet said. “The only path back to the Queequeg leads through those mushrooms.”
“If we go through the mushrooms,” Fiona said, “we’ll most likely be poisoned. One spore could easily slip through our suits.”
“Antidote?” Sunny asked.
“I might find the recipe for a cure,” Fiona replied, “someplace in my mycological library. But we don’t want to take that chance. We’ll have to exit another way.

What am I currently reading?

65111I am currently reading Kitty and the Dead Man’s Hand by Carrie Vaughn, the fifth book in the Kitty Norville series. I’m also still reading The Grim Grotto by Lemony Snicket, the eleventh book in the A Series of Unfortunate Events series. I’ve been drifting more toward the Kitty Norville series at the moment, so I’ve put this one on a slight hold. I need to get back to it, though. Before I forget what I’ve already read….^^;

What did I recently finish reading?

1624920Kitty and the Silver Bullet by Carrie Vaughn, the fourth book in the Kitty Norville series. Last week I mentioned how I enjoyed certain books in the series and how others were just okay. This one was definitely one of the better ones. It had a fairly big impact on the plot as a whole and you got to learn a bit more about some other characters that had popped in earlier.

 


What do I think I’ll read next?

by Carrie Vaughn, the sixth book in the Kitty Norville series. I’m almost finished up with the fifth book, so I should be starting the sixth tonight. Once again, I’m looking forward to see where this series goes.

I am currently reading Kitty and the Dead Man’s Hand by Carrie Vaughn, the fifth book in the Kitty Norville series.

My teaser:

 

A man strode down the far left aisle, making his way to the microphone near the stage. Beside him stalked a hip-high leopard. The animal was sleek, muscles sliding under fur and skin. His tail flicked behind him. His head held low, he glared forward with yellow-green eyes. Some human awareness glinted in those eyes – a lycanthrope.
