Express Yourself: Whatcha reading?

Welcome back to Express Yourself hosted by Jackie at Bouquet of Books and Dani at Entertaining Interests! This week's question is: What are you reading?

I am currently in the home stretch of my favorite author Robert Olen Butler's The Hot Country. It is his first thriller as well as the first in his new Christopher Marlowe Cobb series, and it is set in pre-WWI Mexico, during its revolution. It's very intriguing, and Kitt Cobb is a complex journalist who reveals a big story that could also change the history of the United States!

I am also beta reading an interesting vampire fiction. I like when people have different takes on the vampire mythos (I've been using this word a lot. Am I using it right?), and this writer does a very good job of painting a picture of this supernatural world a poor supposed-to-be-in-college kid is sucked (no pun intended) into.

Stop by Jackie & Dani's pages to get the other participants, or to join this weekly bloghop! :)


  1. I really enjoy different takes on vampire mythos, too. (Yes, you're using that word correctly!)

    As for Robert Olen Butler, don't think I've ever heard of that author before. Glad to hear this book of his is good so far!

  2. Nice! I'm reading LOTR right now.

  3. Love beta-ing .. reading fun stuff and helping someone at the same time! :)

  4. The Hot Country Sounds like an interesting read. I just finished reading a novel set in WWI based in Australia. It was interesting too and I added my post about it to the list here #22.
