W...W...W... Wednesdays


It's Wednesday, and that means it's time for the Wednesday meme from the ShouldBeReading website.

Here is how it works. To play along, you 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?


Post the answers on your blog and send a link in a comment to today's post on the ShouldBeReading site. Or, if you don't have a blog, just post your answers directly in the comments box there.




And here are my answers:
Scott - Ouroboros (Stargate SG1)

• What are you currently reading?

Ouroboros
by Melissa Scott
This is a book in the science-fiction book series spun off from the Stargate SG1 television series that was so successful for 10 years on Showtime and The SciFi Channel. The name Ouroboros comes from Greek mythology. It refers to a serpent shown biting its own tale so that it forms a circle; an ancient symbol of unity or cyclicality. The book is a lighter read than most of what I've been reading lately, but I am currently writing a Stargate SG1 book, and I'm trying to immerse myself a little deeper into the Stargate world, to push through my current chronic case of writer's block.

Zusak - The Book Thief• What did you recently finish reading?

The Book Thief
by Markus Zusak

This bestselling novel is the story of Liesel Meminger, a girl trying to copy with the horrors of Nazi Germany by stealing books and learning to read them. Liesel and her little brother are taken from their mother (whom she later learns was sent to a camp — from which she apparently never returns — because of her Communist leanings) to be given to a foster family. Liesel's brother dies en route, and she arrives alone at Himmel Street. Her new mother, Rosa, seems harsh and cantankerous, but her new father, Hans, is an accordion-playing sweetheart who always seems to understand just how she feels. Rudy, the yellow-haired boy next door who wants to be Jesse Owens, becomes her best friend and biggest admirer. The violence and deprivations of war make life uncertain enough, but things become a lot more complicated when a Jewish man, Max, shows up at the door, asking Liesel, Hans, and Rosa to risk their lives to hide him from the Nazis. Interestingly, the narrator of the book is the personified figure of Death, who is actually one of the most symphathetic characters.

Rinaldi - Amelia's War
• What do you think you’ll read next?

I'm not completely sure. One of the books I'm considering:

Amelia's War
by Ann Rinaldi

From one war to another.... I'm always a sucker for a good Civil War story, and for anything by Ann Rinaldi. So this one sounds great, and it's set in nearby Hagerstown, Maryland.
