Welcome to my first Book Blogger Hop weekend! The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly link hosted by another book blog so that book bloggers everywhere can meet and share their love of books. This week's topic is: TELL US ABOUT THE BOOK YOU ARE CURRENTLY READING!
Well, I have two answers to that one. Last night when I went to bed I felt like reading something that wouldn't take too long so I started but did not finish "Down In The Ground Where The Dead Men Go" by Caitlin Kittredge, published in the anthology Huntress.
Ever since I read Street Magic by Caitlin Kittredge, I've pretty much bought every book that has a Jack Winter story in it. Jack reminds me so much of Spike from BTVS minus the fangs and homicidal tendencies that I just can't resist him. I was mildly disappointed that this story didn't have Pete Caldecott in it; I love the interaction and sexual tension between Jack and Pete. This short story is set in 1990, probably before Jack knew Pete and her sister. Jack is in Scotland, playing with his band, The Bastards, when he approached by an American woman who needs his help to kill a demon. Needless to say, she is not what she appears and Jack gets wrapped up in her mission. As I mentioned, I haven't finished yet but I'm enjoying it.
The full-length book I'm currently reading is C. L. Wilson's King of Sword and Sky, book three in her Tairen Soul series. (Look right for the cover.) I'm on page 156 but I'm not as engrossed with this one as I have been with the first two. Wilson's made this a five book series so I'm thinking it's inevitable that the middle book may drag a bit and I find my mind wandering to other things while I'm reading this one. Let's hope it gets better. This book is on my one book challenge list I signed up for this year and I'd like to finish it sometime soon.
Have a great weekend! Stay cool :)
