Currently Reading

The Cabinet of Dr. Leng by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child
A direct follow on from the last Pendergast novel, Bloodless, The Cabinet of Dr. Leng follows Constance into an alternate timeline 1880 New York. Meanwhile, at the Natural History Museum in the 21st Century, Lieutenant D’Agosta and Special Agent Coldmoon team up on a case.
I usually enjoy books by these two writers, but the last few novels have left me wondering if they’re even writing them anymore. I’m struggling to finish The Cabinet of Dr. Leng and really only continuing out of pig headedness.

Recently Read

The Usurper King by Zeb Haradon
Set in an alternative world where Ted Bundy is a politician, biological viruses travel through phone apps, and divination by reading animal entrails is a highly paid career path, The Usurper King provides a weird history take on the 2016 US presidential elections.
There were some things I loved about this novel, while other aspects left me feeling uncomfortable. Altogether, it was an original, well written, surprisingly thoughtful novel that I’m glad I read.

Reading Next

When I Save Us by Ellie Sabine

What I gathered from this book’s description is that a wife goes back in time to save her marriage.
I don’t read much romance, but I enjoyed the author’s other books, and I know that she writes science fiction and imaginative plots well. Looking forward to reading this one.

What are you reading at the moment? Any recommendations?

  1. Ah, it’s been a while since I’ve done a www post, maybe I’ll rectify that soon. Didn’t know you were reading romance! That is one of my least favourite genres and I don’t have any recommendations. My latest read was the beautifully written Our Wives Under the Sea. It is strangely poetic but includes a decent amount of horror as well. Don’t know if you would enjoy it.

    1. You should return to WWW Wednesday! Yeah, I don’t like romance, but I’m hoping this book is more time travel science fiction like the author’s other books. Horror, you say? Yes please. I’ve heard good things about that book.
