In another bow to Book View Cafe’s WWW Wednesday, I’m going to snatch the idea and post it here.
The meme is simple:

What are you currently reading?
A Hidden Witch (The Modern Witch #2) by Debora Geary. I’m enjoying this series, despite it’s simplistic nature. In fact, that’s part of the fun. I like characters I’d be comfortable with at a picnic, and this crew of witches definitely fits that idea. So far, nothing much actually happens in these books – it’s sort of a Walden Family Witches. There’s a close-knit extended family with lots of kids and a tight community of witches that stay in contact through the internet and an online game. Everybody loves everybody else and there’s lots of sharing and teaching going on. It’s exactly the kind of thing I’d like to be part of. Except for the gaming part. Trust me. I can’t even handle Second Life.
What did you recently finish reading?
Lyon’s Legacy (Catalyst Chronicles, #1) by Sandra Ulbrich Almazan. I gave this novella 3 stars on Goodreads, which is my default rating. I liked it well enough, although I found it hard to take seriously. Honestly, we discover a wormhole to a parallel universe slightly behind us in time, and we turn it into a tourist playground? Then send someone over there to steal DNA from a famous rock star so we can clone him?
The good thing about this is that it’s so ridiculous you go along for the ride. The characters are well-drawn, especially the MC. There’s no serious action in this book either, but there’s lots of angst.
What do you think you’ll read next?
I think I’ll go with Timeless by Gail Carriger. I loved the Parasol Protectorate series, and I’ve never managed to read this last book. But I’ve finally bought it and it should be up next!
