What Are You Reading Wednesday

What are you reading Wednesday – 8/5/15

whatareyoureadingwed
What Are You Reading Wednesdays is a weekly meme hosted by Its A Reading Thing. To participate, open the book you are currently reading to page 34 (or 34% in your ebook) and answer these three questions. Feel free to leave your answers or a link to your blog post in the comments.

The Questions are:
1. What’s the name of your current read?

2. Go to page 34 in your book or 34% in your eBook and share a complete sentence. (or two!)

3. Would you like to live in the world that exists within your book? Why or why not?

1 – This week I have an advanced reading copy of House of Thieves by Charles Belfoure
House of Thieves: A Novel
Available September 15, 2015 from Sourcebooks Landmark

2 – When you present your calling card to the butler, Julia, you must wait to see if the lady of the house will receive you. If the butler tells you, “She’s not at home to callers”, that’s perfectly acceptable. Don’t take it as a slight.

3 – I love reading about 1880’s New York and the ins and outs of society, and I wouldn’t mind cruising around town in a horse drawn carriage. I don’t think I would want to stay forever though. I would miss too many modern conveniences, especially my air conditioning and my Keurig brewer…. 🙂

  1. I love the historical novels but agree I wouldn’t want to live in that time. People who think they want to live in ‘simpler times’ don’t stop to think what it was really like. I would not want to be without my air conditioner either.

  2. Oh historical fiction is always fun to read. I agree that I wouldn’t want to stay long in that time period though, I would miss my internets and Starbucks 😉
