WWW Wednesdays

W... W... W... Wednesdays is a bookish meme hosted by MizB from Should Be Reading. To play along you need to answer three questions.

What are you currently reading?

I'm reading Baltazar and Blimunda by Jose Saramago. I haven't read too much of the book yet, maybe 65 pages or so...but so far so good.

Here's the blurb:
Portugal, 1711: an amorous friar is pursued naked through the rubble-strwn streets of Lisbon; an enthusiastic procession of flagellants roars with pleasure over the damnation of adultery; a royal prince uses hapless sailors for target practice; and women dressed in colorful finery watch as lapsed converts and sorcerers are put to death by flames. In the midst of the terrors of the Inquisition and the plague, a seemingly mismatched couple discovers the wonders of love. This poetic tale, graced with exquisite historical detail and full of magic and adventure, is a tapestry of human folly and human will.

What did you recently finish reading?

I finished reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I loved it and I'm hoping that I will be able to get the second book of the series very soon.

What do you think you’ll read next?

As usual I'm not sure but there are several possibilities: One Dance with a Duke by Tessa Dare, The Apothecary's Daughter by Julie Klassen, All I Ever Wanted by Kristan Higgins, A Cottage by the Sea by Ciji Ware or Heidi by Johanna Spyri.
