What Are You Reading Wednesdays #WAYRW is a weekly feature on It’s A Reading Thing. Everyone is welcome to participate.

Grab the book you are currently reading and answer three questions:

  1. What’s the name of your current read?
  2. Go to page 34 in your book or 34% in your eBook and share a couple of sentences.
  3. Would you like to live in the world that exists within your book? Why or why not?

Just a note before I do the WAYRW prompts: I know my WWW Wednesday post from earlier said I was currently reading the second book in the Cold Awakening Trilogy, but I just happened to check my account at the public library shortly after making that post and discovered that Frostblood is due back tomorrow with a couple people already having it reserved. So, if I want a chance to read it without having to wait at least a month, I have to read it now. I’m about 35% in so far according to Goodreads and if I’m lucky I can get it all done in time for the husband to return it for me tomorrow. Then, back to Crashed and the Mech-heads!

  1. Frostblood by Elly Blake (Frostblood Saga, book 1)
  2. “His palsied hand trembled as he tried each key, until one of them opened my ankle cuff with a decisive snick.”
  3. I’m a little less than halfway through at this point and I still haven’t decided… I like the fantasy aspect and would enjoy living in a world with that, but it doesn’t seem like a world it’s own inhabitants would choose at this point. Not to mention, knowing myself and my husband as I do, I’d be a Frostblood in love with a Fireblood and I don’t see that going well for the two of us in the current state of upheaval! (Also I’d be forced to kill anyone who tried to turn him in for being a Fireblood, and I’m not sure I’d even feel guilty about it. So best that we stay out of that world for now, huh?)

  1. Skinned by Robin Wasserman (has been republished as ‘Frozen’)
  2. The doctor’s voice was cold. “There’s nothing to put back. There’s no body to go back to. The body of Lia Kahn is dead. Be grateful you didn’t die with it.”
  3. I’m only about halfway in. I wouldn’t mind living in that world, as long as I didn’t have to associate with Lia’s friends and family… I’d love to chill with Quinn. And I’d probably be one of the people who volunteered for the download.

  1. Psych Major Syndrome by Alicia Thompson
  2. “Andrew was right. We probably wouldn’t have any problems if I didn’t go out of my way to create them.”
  3. No. I do not want to live in Leigh’s little world… Any of her little worlds. Also I do not want to live anywhere Andrew lives. I almost didn’t do WAYRW this week because I was still on page 19 of the book, but now I’m glad I did because I can point out that I was COMPLETELY RIGHT TO HATE THE BOYFRIEND ALREADY!

  1. The Tale of Elske by Cynthia Voigt (Tales of the Kingdom, book 4)
    Also published as Elske
  2. “On this road they saw some other men, fishers and farmers Elske was told; some of the men were accompanied by women whose hair was wrapped around with colored cloths. These men and women stared at Elske, in her fur boots and wolfskin cloak, but when she stared back and them they looked away.”
  3. Yes! But no. But yes, but no, but yes. God I love the Kingdom so much, and I love the characters, but everything south of the Kingdom is so brutal and I find it fascinating, but I would totally not survive because I cannot control my mouth!

  1. Prophecy of the Sisters by Michelle Zink
  2. “There is no ladylike way to tell him to push all he wants, that his mouth and body on mine are the only things keeping me from losing my hold on a reality I never questioned until these past days.”
  3. I mean, at this point it seems nice enough even with the weird mystery, so sure… But only if I can be one of the girls with powers!

  1. The Singer of All Songs
  2. “Calwyn felt suddenly very solemn and serious. Usually during lessons and lectures she felt only a fierce desire to be elsewhere or an irresistible urge to fidget, but now she sat as still as a statue, sensing that what Marna was about to tell her was more important, and certainly more interesting, than herb lore or weaving patterns.”
  3. I think I might, but only if I could be just a regular little background character doing my own thing, just enjoying my magic, while they went on the dangerous adventures.

  1. Library of Souls (Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children, book 3) by Ransom Riggs
  2. “If she let it feel everything, she’d be wrecked. So she had to tame it, shush it, shut it up. Float the worst pains off to an island that was quickly filling with them, where she would go to live one day.”
  3. Who knows, maybe I already do….

  1. The Tale of Oriel (Tales of the Kingdom book 3, previously published as ‘The Wings of a Falcon’)
  2. He held the whip that and made those marks, and drawn that blood, and he was ashamed. He held the whip that could make more marks on the flesh of Nikol’s back. While Nikol begged.
  3. Not in Oriel’s book! No way! I don’t want any of Oriel’s adventures, not at all. He works so hard to find a place they can be safe and free, not have to hurt anyone or be hurt themselves, but this is not an easy task outside of The Kingdom, and I want no part of it.

  1. The Tale of Birle (Tales of the Kingdom book 2, previously published as ‘On Fortunes Wheel’)
  2. What he was doing, creeping through the world like a thief – where he was going to, in secrecy – what he might be fleeing from – those questions also she didn’t know the answer to. But she did know that only the Lords went beardless.
  3. Ha! I like the Kingdom, but I wouldn’t live in any of the places they travel to in this book, not on your life.

  1. The Tale of Gwyn (Tales of the Kingdom, book 1; previously published as ‘Jackaroo’)
  2. Behind the mask Jackaroo wore, there could be a face of bone, its flesh long since eaten away. Jackaroo could fight as a trained soldier, with swords and shield; he could ride a horse like a Lord; and he had the knowledge of letters which only the Lords held.
  3. Nah, I really like technology and indoor plumbing. Okay, but seriously, I might consider living in the Kingdom universe. It’s got pretty much the same problems as modern day America, but it the Kingdom I could disappear to a farm and be anyone, maybe stay out of all the awful crap.
