WWW Wednesdays

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 are you currently reading? I am currently reading The Poisoner's Handbook: Murder and the Birth of Forensic Medicine in Jazz Age New York by Pulitzer Prize winner Deborah Blum. Although the subject matter is somewhat dark, this book explores a very fascinating subject/place/time in our country's history.

What did you recently finish reading? The last book I read was The Killer of Little Shepherds by Douglas Starr. Absolutely fantastic book! I haven't read anything this good since The Devil in the Windy City by Erik Larson. For anyone interested in historical true-crime thrillers, this is a must read! 5 Stars

What do you think you'll read next? The last two books I've read were nonfiction, so I think I'm going to read a fictional story next - but the subject matter will stay the same. I've heard great things about The Alienist by Caleb Carr. I've wanted to read it for some time now, and I just got a copy of it from paperbackswap.com, so I'm very excited. Can't wait to get started!

  1. I do enjoy a good mystery and some true crime as long as it's not too graphic. I'll check back for your review of The Alienist.

  2. The Poisoner's Handbook is somewhat graphic, even for me. It's made me wince more than once.

    But I'm really looking forward to reading the Alienist and I can't wait to write a review for it!
