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…

1. Reading Up a Storm by Eva Gates (Read my recent interview with her here)
Reading Up a Storm (Lighthouse Library Mystery #3)
Lighthouse Library Mystery #3

2. “Forgot about the differences between common sense an a darn fool, sounds like,” Josie whispered to me. I kept my face impassive. That they could have been killed, and that the coast guard rescuing them were putting themselves in danger, seemed not to matter to Marlene.

3. Cheating a little – I already answered this question when I featured Booked for Trouble (book # 2) on WAYRW! My answer then – “Definitely – the Bodie Island Lighthouse sounds like a beautiful place to work (and live).” I still agree with that assessment.

What Are You Reading (and listening to) Wednesday

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?

I’m going to give you double the answers this week…one book I’m reading, and the 2nd is the audiobook I’m currently listening to while commuting.

I’m Reading:

1. Rest in Peach by Susan Furlong
Rest in Peach (Georgia Peach Mystery #2)

2. Sorry, left my book at home today without getting my quote from page 34, so here’s something from another page….

“She just called her a backstabbing snob, that’s all. That’s not the same as threatening to stab someone”.

3. I think I would like to visit Georgia, especially during peach season, but the times I’ve visited it’s been a little too humid for me to want to live there.

I’m Listening to:

1. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

2. Again, no quote form page 34….since it’s an audiobook, I’ll have to give you a random quote (or three). These do a decent job of illustrating the protagonist’s thought process.

Metaphors are lies.

I find people confusing.

And then I thought that I had to be like Sherlock Holmes and detach my mind at will to a remarkable degree so that I did not notice how much it was hurting inside my head.

3. This story takes place in what feels like a typical small town, but seeing it through Christopher’s eyes, I’m not sure I’d want to live there. I can’t even put my finger on the reason why, but the place makes me feel a little uneasy.

How about you? What are you reading (or listening to) this week?

2. As good as the book has been so far, nothing too exciting is happening on page 34! 🙂

Lucky finished laying placemats along the countertop, then unlocked the front door and flipped the sign over. The Spoonful was open for the day.

3. A small Vermont skiing town actually sounds perfect! I’d like it even better in the off-season when all the tourist had gone home. As long as murder wasn’t a regular occurrence, I think Snowflake would be a great hometown.

2. As Chessa lifted the items, her body trembled with grief. Zach. How could you? She pushed the painful thought from her mind, slipped inside the guest bathroom, and took her first full breath since the sheriff’s department had arrived.

3. It very much depends…I would not have a problem living in Lake Tahoe, but if i had to take off like Chessa, then no thank you! 🙂

So tell me, what are you reading this week? Let me know in the comments, and feel free to leave a link if you have a post to share.

3. This is the story of Pru, a Texas-born gardener who has relocated to a beautiful estate in the English countryside. I think I’d be quite happy in her surroundings. 🙂

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?

Now for my answers this week…

1. The Library at Mount Char by Scott Hawkins
The Library at Mount Char

2. I’m going to deviate a little and take my quote form the beginning of the book instead of page 34. I think that after reading the first paragraph of this story, you will either be sucked in with an immediate need to know why (like I was), or you will run the other way, comfortable in the knowledge that this book is not for you. As a little taste of what I’m talking about, here is the opening line….

Carolyn, blood-drenched and barefoot, walked alone down the two-lane stretch of blacktop that the Americans called Highway 78.

3. I’m not that far in yet, which makes it hard to tell. Right now, the story is taking place in the American south, which would be ok, I guess, as long as I wasn’t actually near any of the Librarians in the story. I have a feeling by the end of the book I’ll want to change my answer to a resounding NO!
