What I'm Reading Wednesday

What are you currently reading?
I picked up the next volume of The Losers, but didn't end up getting any further in it, as I was distracted by other things. I shall attempt it again, starting tomorrow.

What have you recently finished reading?
I just finished On Conan Doyle by Michael Dirda, which was entirely charming. It's definitely a fun read for the super Doyle fan, and it is an interesting combination of biography, memoir, lit-crit, and pure on fannishness. The ending kind of got a little off-track as Dirda spent more time describing his own works as a Baker Street Irregular more than anything else, but otherwise, all sorts of fun.

I also finished another volume of Ultimate Spider-Man, which was also very solid.

What do you think you’ll read next?
As mentioned above, I need to finish The Losers, and as previously mentioned last week, I also have Heart's Blood by Juliet Marillier out of the library, and I need to give it a read.

I'm reading a bunch of stuff right now.

I've finally gotten around to reading Neil Gaiman. WTF was I waiting for?! I started with American Gods and then went to the library and got The Sandman gn (which I'm still reading) and Neverwhere. Then I bought and read The Graveyard Book and Coraline. I am officially smitten haha

I'm also reading East of Eden by Steinbeck, The Picture of Dorian Gray by Wilde, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Angelou, and The Return of the King by Tolkein.

Next will probably be (I say probably because my mood changes often) Joyland by Stephen King, The Last of the Mohicans by Cooper and Shardik by Adams.

The best book I've read so far this year is NOS4A2 by Joe Hill. So much fun. Couldn't put it down. I read it in 2 days. Well, technically 3 but only because I forced myself to stop when I had 40 or so pages left because it was so good I didn't want it to end. It's dark but written in a really fun way so you can't help but keep turning the pages. :)
