WWW Wednesday #3

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words
WWW stands for three questions: 

1. What are you currently reading?
by Harper Lee


Atticus Finch gives this advice to his children as he defends the real mockingbird of this classic novel - a black man charged with attacking a white girl. Through the eyes of Scout and Jem Finch, Lee explores the issues of race and class in the Deep South of the 1930s with compassion and humour. She also creates one of the great heroes of literature in their father, whose lone struggle for justice pricks the conscience of a town steeped in prejudice and hypocrisy.

This is a re-read for me. After doing The Zombie Apocalypse Book Tag (where I got Atticus as the team medic) I felt like rewatching the movie and once I did, the book called for me again from my shelf. It's high time for me to review it anyway, since I didn't write anything about it the first time around.

2. What did you recently finish reading?
by Lecia Cornwall


Laire MacLeod’s father has married a mysterious widow who is a vain beauty that deals with potions and spells. Laire does not drink them with the rest of her family and is the only one who could see through her stepmother’s games. When Laire flees to find help from her Uncle the Lady’s huntsman follows her with orders to kill. Laire must survive in a dangerous new city and find the antidote to a poisonous potion before it is too late.

Iain Lindsay is cursed. He is bound for seven years to be the hunter of a Lady who uses him to bring back birds to use in her potions. When Laire MacLeod escapes the Lady’s nets, Iain tracks her to Edinburgh, where she’s found shelter with an unusual band of thieves, but he cannot bring himself to harm her. Instead, he finds himself falling in love with the MacLeod beauty.
But a Highlander’s oath is his bond, and the price for helping her is death, both his own, and of those he loves.

And I loved it! But hey, guys, the cover is soooo misleading. I mean... why would you put a girl in a red cloak on the front of a Snow White retelling?? The cover shouts Little Red Riding Hood when the story is actually Snow White. Weird.

Look out for the review, it'll be up soon!
3. What do you think you'll read next?

Okay. So. As you know, I wanted to read Girl in Disguise next, but for some reason they don't send me the e-copy, even though I'm supposed to review the book by March 25. I already sent them two polite e-mails, but I don't get a reply. They are either not going to send it to me or they are going to send it in the last minute and that's not good news, since I'm not a very fast reader... Oh, well. 

Since Girl in Disguise is not an option now, I'll show you what I planned to read after that:
by Jennifer Rose McMahon


'When your dreams become reality, being cursed can be a real nightmare.'

Like a punch in the face, eighteen-year-old Maeve O'Malley's visions knock her off her path. The Pirate Queen stalking Maeve in her dreams, killed her mother years ago, and now is coming for her.

Maeve's decision to ditch Boston College takes everyone by surprise as she packs her bags, leaves Boston, and heads to the west coast of Ireland to chase her dreams – and end them.

Maeve uncovers an ancient family curse that refuses to remain silent until she accepts her predestined role in what many thought was only legend. Her Irish history professor – a man she shouldn't be falling for – is the only person who understands the origin of the tormenting events.

Maeve's journey becomes a medieval treasure hunt through Ireland's castles and ruins as she tracks the wrathful Pirate Queen who has her marked for vengeance...
