WWW Wednesday – 4

WWW Wednesdays is a weekly meme hosted over at Should Be Reading…it just takes a few minutes: to play along, just answer the following three questions…

What are you currently reading?

What did you recently finish reading?

What do you think you’ll read next?
———————————————-
What are you currently reading?
The Passage by Justin Cronin – as it’s a pretty big book I’d put off starting it in March because I had a lot going on at the time and needed to meet my target of reading five dystopian books for a Goodreads challenge – so even though (I think) it is going to be dystopian-ish, it would have killed my chances in the challenge. Now I just have to read it and give it back to my friend at work and so I’m jumping right in now!
What did you recently finish reading?
Shadowland by C.M. Gray – fantastic YA/adult historical adventure (the male protagonists are both young men). It’s a fast paced, interesting read set in Arthurian England and has some nice twists and turns, mystical elements as well as action. It’s also really well written, lovely description and scene-setting, in-keeping with the historic setting, as well as plenty of witty dialogue between the boys.
What do you think you’ll read next?
I’m really need to start Zed – the zombie with a brain – by Stephen Herfst, as a broken kindle held me up last week (now replaced by the lovely peeps at Amazon) and then I’ve got some other lovely books I can’t wait to get to (but you’ll see those in Friday Finds over on Aside from Writing!) 🙂

      I know – but I’ve read the sample and it sounds good – I also like the idea of a thinking zombie

      Hopefully it will not be as random as Zombicorns!

    I would definitely call The Passage dystopian. I hope you enjoy it. I’m going to add Shadowland to my queue, you make it sound so good!

      Thanks 🙂 The author has some 50% offers I think at the moment for readers, check him out on Twitter and I think you’ll find them

      And I’m glad The Passage is dystopian – it might count towards a reading challenge

  2. I’ve never heard of Zed, but I’m a huge zombie fan, so I’m definitely looking forward to your review!

    Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I read The Passage a couple years ago – definitely a dystopian. Unfortunately, for me, I didn’t like it much. But I hope that doesn’t deter you from enjoying it!

    Shadowland is definitely going to find it’s way on my TBR shelves, now. As well as Zed. Great books this week!

    Thanks for visiting the Daily Bookmark!

      I have to admit I’m not 100% on THe Passage – the friend who loaned it me said, they liked two thirds of the book, but not another one…I’ll persevere but don’t expect to love it 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by

  4. Shadowland sounds really interesting – I’ve just added it to my to-read list on Goodreads as the reviews pretty much give it a thumbs up too 🙂

    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog earlier!

  5. Your books sounds cool, I’ll be checking them out, especially Zed, I love me some Zombies!
