W...W...W... Wednesday!

W...W...W... Wednesdays is hosting at Should Be Reading.


To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…
* What are you currently reading?
* What did you recently finish reading?
* What do you think you’ll read next?
What am I reading? Currently I am reading a number of books, but I am only listing two here:
The Hidden Queen by Alma Alexander

Amazon Product Description:

The life Anghara knows has ended; everyone she loved is dead or doomed. And now she must flee far from her home or die at the hands of her half-brother Sif. A defenseless child is adrift in an unfamiliar world, pursued by the minions of a false king whose brutality knows no bounds. But Anghara has a great destiny that reaches beyond the borders of the troubled realm she must one day rule -- and a miraculous gift to be awakened in secret and fortified in a distant desert land at once beautiful, mysterious, and perilous: an awesome and frightening power called Sight.

 and
The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner: An Eclipse Novella by Stephenie Meyer.
Amazon Product Description:
Fans of The Twilight Saga will be enthralled by this riveting story of Bree Tanner, a character first introduced in Eclipse, and the darker side of the newborn vampire world she inhabits. In another irresistible combination of danger, mystery, and romance, Stephenie Meyer tells the devastating story of Bree and the newborn army as they prepare to close in on Bella Swan and the Cullens, following their encounter to its unforgettable conclusion.



What did I finish reading lately? I have finished a few books lately, the last two are:
Pleasure Unbound: A Demonica Novel by Larissa Ione

Amazon Product Description:

In a place where ecstasy can cost you your life . . .
She's a demon-slayer who hungers for sensual pleasure-but fears it will always be denied her. Until Tayla Mancuso lands in a hospital run by demons in disguise, and the head doctor, Eidolon, makes her body burn with unslakable desire. But to prove her ultimate loyalty to her peers, she must betray the surgeon who saved her life.
Two lovers will dare to risk all.
Eidolon cannot resist this fiery, dangerous woman who fills him with both rage and passion. Not only is she his avowed enemy, but she could very well be the hunter who has been preying upon his people. Torn between his need for the truth and his quest to find his perfect mate before a horrific transformation claims him forever, Eidolon will dare the unthinkable-and let Tayla possess him, body and soul...

and 
Leader of the Pack: Tales of an Urban Werewolf by Karen MacInerney

Amazon Product Description:

WILDLY INDEPENDENT, SHE’S NOT ONE FOR PACK MENTALITY.

On the outside, Sophie Garou is living every woman’s dream: she has beauty, brains, and a big-time position in Austin’s most respected accounting firm (not to mention a very sexy, very successful new boyfriend). But there’s one Sophie would rather keep under wraps: she is a werewolf.

Sophie’s life gets a little more hairy when her long-estranged father, Luc, arrives in the Live Music Capital to attend the werewolves’ annual Howl and reconnect with his daughter. But Luc’s plans fall apart after he’s accused of murder and arrested by his archrival, Wolfgang, leader of the Houston pack (and one notoriously dirty dog). Wolfgang drools at the thought of Luc’s impending execution, but Sophie won’t let her father die without a fight. Determined to prove his innocence, she and her friends set out to find the real killer. Along the way, Sophie must deal with taboo attractions, Machiavellian intrigues, sinister agendas, and hair-raising betrayals.

What do I plan to read next? I have a TBR stack that rivals Mount Baker, but I am hoping to finish all of the books I am currently reading and then read the rest of the books in both of the series I just started.  The Tales of an Urban Werewolf series, as I started mistakenly with book 3 and the remaining books in the Demonica series as well.

Waiting on Wednesday is hosting by Breaking the Spine.

Amazon Product Description:

It’s a good thing Dru Anderson is fast. Because the sucker chasing her isn’t slowing down—and he won’t rest until he has tasted her blood and silenced her heart . . .
Dru’s best friend, Graves, and her strange and handsome savior, Christophe, are ready to help her take on the ultimate evil. But will their battle for Dru’s heart get in the way of her survival?

I'm not a twilight fan, but I have become strangely interested in the Bree Danner book.

And Jealousy - I'm glad it comes out soon - it's one of the few YA series that I just really look forward to (being close to 50 year old LOL)

The Karen McKierney book sounds good too, I'm going to take a look at that one.
