WWW Wednesdays

WWW Wednesdays is a meme from Should Be Reading, where we answer three questions: What are you currently reading? What did you recently finish reading? and What do you think you'll read next? If you want to participate, answer the three questions, then put your link on the Should Be Reading Blog in the comment section. Happy reading!

Beautiful Malice: A NovelWhat I am currently reading: Beautiful Malice by Rebecca James - Pump Up Your Book! sent this one to me for review. It is described as psychological suspense, which I thought sounded like it would be the kind of book I might enjoy. Review to come on Friday.

Courting Morrow Little: A NovelWhat I recently finished reading: Courting Morrow Little by Laura Frantz - This one was a winner! I finally found another "prairie romance" that I really think is a very good example of Christian Historical Fiction. Review will be on this blog tomorrow. From Revell Books.

City of Veils: A NovelWhat I'll probably read next: City of Veils by Zoe Ferraris - A publicist for Little, Brown sent this one to me. Looks really intiguing. Here is the description of the book from Amazon's website:

Women in Saudi Arabia are expected to lead quiet lives circumscribed by Islamic law and tradition. But Katya, one of the few women in the medical examiner's office, is determined to make her work mean something.

When the body of a brutally beaten woman is found on the beach in Jeddah, the city's detectives are ready to dismiss the case as another unsolvable murder-chillingly common in a city where the veils of conservative Islam keep women as anonymous in life as the victim is in death. If this is another housemaid killed by her employer, finding the culprit will be all but impossible.

Only Katya is convinced that the victim can be identified and her killer found. She calls upon her friend Nayir for help, and soon discovers that the dead girl was a young filmmaker named Leila, whose controversial documentaries earned her many enemies.

With only the woman's clandestine footage as a guide, Katya and Nayir must confront the dark side of Jeddah that Leila struggled to expose: an underworld of prostitution, violence, exploitation, and jealously guarded secrets. Along the way, they form an unlikely alliance with an American woman whose husband has disappeared. Their growing search takes them from the city's car-clogged streets to the deadly vastness of the desert beyond.

In CITY OF VEILS, award-winning author Zoƫ Ferraris combines a thrilling, fast-paced mystery with a rare and intimate look into women's lives in the Middle East.

Sounds good, doesn't it?

So, tell me, what are you reading and what will you probably read next? What is your favorite read so far in 2010? What books are on your TBR list? Send me some links, if you can.
