WWW Wednesday Nov 23



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?



Happy Wednesday before Thanksgiving (for some of us!).  Yay!  

1)  What are you currently reading?
This is a very interesting book, and I'm having a hard time putting it down.  I'm hoping I can finish it before I go for Thanksgiving dinner at my family's house!  
Inga manages to escape from a "house of terror" where she was held as a captive along with other girls who were kidnapped. She is chased into the woods and runs onto the road, almost falling under the wheels of an approaching car. She thought, it would be better to die that way than to return to her captors. The driver of the car, to her surprise, saves her. He brings her to his house and introduces her to his family: his mother, his father and his younger sister. He gives Inga a key to a separate room and brings her food. She appreciates his help and calls him her knight from the road. All she needs now is a phone to make a call to her mother. Her savior, Alman, says they don't have one in the house. He's also not in a hurry to take her from his house in the woods to the town where she can talk to police. And Inga began to doubt the noble intentions of her savior. After some time she starts to think this house is worse than the one she was imprisoned in before, if that was possible. 


2) What did you recently finish reading?
This weekend I read two books/novellas from Naomi Clark, Ungrateful Dead 
PI Ethan Banning wouldn't normally touch a haunting case. Mostly because he doesn't believe in ghosts. But when Charlie Mullen asks him to spend the night at a supposedly haunted morgue, Ethan figures, why not? He's broke and Charlie's offering double his normal rate, and that's good enough for Ethan.

But when a troublesome ghost really does show up, Ethan realises he's going to need more than a good supply of alcohol to get through the night

PI Ethan Banning is smoking too much, sleeping too little, and hearing voices. One voice, to be exact: the voice of the demon that possessed him on his last case. A voice that urges him to hurt, rape, kill, and Ethan doesn't think he has the strength to ignore it much longer. 

When his latest missing person case turns into a murder investigation, Ethan finds himself fighting not just demonic urges, but black magic, an incubus with a hidden agenda, and a client who just won't pay up. Luckily, Ethan's got a few friends on his side, like Detective Anna Radcliffe, and his trusty dog, Mutt. If Ethan can ignore the demon long enough, he might just solve this case before it kills him.


I loved both and you can find my reviews for them Here (Ungrateful Dead) and Here (Domonized)


3) What do you think you will read next?
Next up is Voodoo Dues by Stephany Simmons


From the beginning of Figg’s employment, there is something not quite right about the bar. There are few customers, a parade of neighborhood psychics and pentacle adorned visitors, all coming to hold court with her enigmatic boss. Figg is not sure what is going on, but she is determined to find out! 

When the local voodoo queen shows up, and the next morning her grandson ends up dead outside the bar things get interesting. 

Figg pesters Lian into telling her the truth about his former life, and is thrust into a world where the things that go bump in the night are real. There’s a murder to solve, zombies to lay to rest and a villain that neither of them saw coming. 





So what are your picks?  Let me know in the comments below, or leave me a link to your WWW!

  5. Chrissy,
    Oooh, I've added The Sentinel to my TBR. Sounds very different! And I agree on Dearly Departed, that one has been on my list since I first saw the cover. That TBR list just grows and grows!

    Monaliz,
    The Ethan Banning files are fantastic! If you read those you should also check out Afterlife (also by Naomi Clark). Afterlife is in the middle of those two books on the timeline, but it doesn't focus entirely on Ethan Banning. But it was one of my favorite books this year without a doubt.

    Thank you for stopping by Louisa and Diaryofadomesticgoddess!
