Wednesday Words: Three Parts Dead

Happy Wednesday!

I can't remember a Wednesday where I wasn't reading On Writing, but finally here we are! This week, I am reading Max Gladstone's Three Parts Dead. The cover intrigued me. Rarely do I see a cover with a black woman on it that isn't in the African American Literature section of the bookstore. This was in my library in the Science Fiction/Fantasy section.

So, I'm really enjoying this book so far and don't want to spoil anything for myself. Therefore, I'm glad when I put the page numbers in, they gave me page 15. Let's see what's there for me to share with you.

They were buried without coffins, so the soil would reclaim their bodies faster and leech the poison magic from them. Tara hadn't even needed to bring a crowbar. Pulling the corpses out of the hole was harder than she expected, though.

Yeah, that was an interesting page. lol

What are you reading?

I know what you mean about covers! I did see a gorgeous one the other day (and read the book): Nobody's Goddess. Such unique concept and involved story. What am I reading? Goodness. An inspirational magazine, a friend's book for critiquing, and Ann of Green Gables for a book club. What can I say? It's a slow month.

The premise looked interesting. I added it to my To-Read Shelf.
