What I'm Reading Wednesday


1. The Passage by Justin Cronin. FINALLY. I got tired of having this still on my list, so I just sat down on Monday and finished the last couple hundred pages. It picked up a bit, but I hated the ending, especially when I realized it was just setting up for the next books. I'm not bothering with those. I went and read summaries to satisfy my curiosity about this one's ending, and I really don't think I'm missing anything by not finishing the series.
2. Edge of Survival by Toni Anderson. I ended up not liking this one as much as I thought I would. I loved the hero and heroine, but the mystery/killer part was kind of lame.


1. Sin in the Second City: Madams, Ministers, Playboys, and the Battle for America's Soul: I've gotten a bit further in this, but not much since I concentrated on finishing The Passage. I'm enjoying it, though. It's fascinating and the writer is making the people really come to life.

2. Reading behind Bars: A True Story of Literature, Law, and Life as a Prison Librarian by Jill Grunenwald: The story about a woman whose first job as a librarian was in an Ohio minimum security prison. I almost gave up on this early on. It really needs a better editor, and I got very annoyed by the fact that she misuses who's for whose twice before the end of chapter two. But I'm curious, so I'm going to stick with it a for bit longer.

3. The Wild Girl by Jim Fergus: A historical novel about a teenaged boy who heads west and joins the 1932 Great Apache Expedition, only to encounter a jailed Apache girl who he develops feelings for. This has really good reviews, but I'm still in the I'm not sure about this phase of reading. It hasn't convinced me yet it's worth going all the way to the end. We'll see.
