Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray – #WAYRW

whatareyoureadingwed

What Are You Reading Wednesdays is a weekly meme hosted by It’s 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.

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?

Now for my answers this week…

2. Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray – Book #2 of the Diviners series
I’m listening to the audiobook, and January LaVoy is narrating again – yay! (See my review of the audiobook edition of The Diviners if you don’t know why I’m so happy about that.)
Lair of Dreams (The Diviners, #2)

2. Well, it’s an audiobook, so it’s hard to find page 34! 🙂 Here are a few random quotes instead….

For dreams, too, are ghosts, desires chased in sleep, gone by morning.

It was funny how one afternoon with a best friend could set a girl right.

This is how it is now. There is strength in acceptance, Ling. Your legs have been taken from you. But how you choose to live with that has not.

3. The story takes place in the 1920’s in New York City. I’d love a peek, but I wouldn’t want to stay. Couldn’t do without all of my more modern conveniences, or my right to vote!!

What’s everyone else reading this week?

  1. I just found your What Are You Reading Wednesdays. Not sure how I never saw it. 🙂

    I am currently reading:

    THE OTHER WIDOW by Susan Crawford

    I am enjoying the book.

    Page 34:

    “When her computer red-flags the accident on Newbury Street, Maggie’s reaction is mixed.

    Would I want to live inside the world in my book:

    No, I would not want to live in my book. Too much drama and too cold and snowy. 🙂 There are some books I have read, though, where I would LOVE to be a part of and live inside. 🙂

    Thank you for your post and great answers.

  2. Oh, Libba Bray is such a good writer. That’s a wonderful quote you chose. I have hardly any opportunity to listen to audiobooks, but after reading how much you enjoyed listening to The Diviners, I’ve been toying with idea of getting Lair of Dreams as an audiobook. The Diviners has a cinematic feel to it–I bet the series would be a blast to listen to.

  3. Equal Rites by Terry Pratchett – “The sun was a red ball above the mountains, and there were already a few early stars out” – “Time passed. Nothing happened” – “The candle guttered and went out”.

    Yes I would like to live in this strange Discworld, a lot of things happen simply by thinking about them. For instance, if you mockingly say “who are you, the God of Money or something” a god of money will fall from the sky and actually exist somewhere on the world. The only thing would be that life would be too chaotic and very unpredictable and I am a little too comfortable with the predictive.
