WWW Wednesday 7-24-13

One of my favorite prompts, from Should Be Reading.  

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?

 

I’m currently reading Sandman Slim, by Richard Kadrey. It’s the first of a series and I love a good series. Especially when the characters are fun. If you’re a fan of Harry Dresden I think you’ll like this one too.

 

 I recently (yesterday) finished reading Revenge: Stories, by Yoko Ogawa. A collection of loosely, oddly connected short stories. Creepy, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. I’ll definitely check out more of her stuff.

 

 Next I’ll be reading Rock on: An Office Power Ballad, by Dan Kennedy. I was turned on to this one by blogger friend and fellow music lover, Nancy Davis Kho, and I actually won a copy of this book signed by the author. In my Top Favorite Things of All-Time, music and books are essentially tied for #1, so this was doubly intriguing.

 

Be sure to link back to the original WWW Wednesday post and share yours with everyone.

 

100 Word Song – Mirrors

Written in response to this week’s 100 Word Song Challenge from Lance and Leeroy over at MyBlogCanBeatUpYourBlog.

I’m a fan of JT. I like a lot of his music, he’s a decent actor, is very funny, and seems to be quite intelligent. I will crank the volume up and sing along with this song in the car, much to the dismay of my family.

It makes me think of The Police’s “Every Breath You Take,” and how our reflection in a mirror is always there watching and mimicking us, whether we like it or not. The 1983 song was, I suppose, intended to be romantic, but it’s kind of creepy, yes? Thanks for bringing romance back too, JT.

Teaser Tuesdays, July 16

I found a new (to me) prompt today and so I figured I’d post some content to the ol’ blog. Been a while, Life is a bit crazy these days. Anyway, it’s called Teaser Tuesdays and it’s from MizB at Should Be Reading. Check it out and play along…

 

  1. Grab your current read
  2. Open to a random page
  3. Share two (2) teaser sentences from that page

BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)

Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
