What Am I Reading? – Chapter Three

Hi Everybody,

I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I sure did! While I wasn’t feasting, I did other things like finish The Gown by Jennifer Robson! Woo hoo! Look for that review sometime during next year’s wedding season 🙂

As I have mentioned before, I’m a slow reader. As of now, I’m still reading What Was Your Name Downriver?: Tales of the Shattered Frontier by Anthony Lowe and White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism by Robin DiAngelo.

As a result, I only have one novel that I have on the reading block this time around. It’s over 600 pages, so don’t expect a review of this one until the second half of next year because I will be reading this for a quite awhile.

You still want to know what it is?

Here it is!

Blowback by Brad Thor is the fourth book in the Scot Harvath series that was originally published in 2005. In this novel, Harvath’s counterterrorism career has crashed and burned, but wait, the president brings him back after the war on terror takes a chilling turn. Underneath an Alpine glacier, a weapon that was designed to destroy the Roman Empire has been discovered. It’s up to Harvath to retrieve this ultimate weapon of mass destruction before another organization takes it and uses for America’s downfall.

Judging by the summary and from I’ve read of it so far, it seem like it’s one of those action packed thrillers that one needs to pay attention to. About a month ago, I finished another one of these books – Nighthawk by Clive Cussler. All I will say of that title is that it was captivating as long as one stayed awake to catch all the details. This is why I’m going to take my time with Blowback.

And that, we come to the end of the third chapter of “What Am I Reading?”

I work at a public library southeast Michigan, and I facilitate two book clubs there. I also hold a Bachelor's degree in History and Theatre from Aquinas College in Grand Rapids, MI; a Master's degree in Library and Information Science from Wayne State University in Detroit, MI; and a Graduate Certificate in Archival Administration also from Wayne. In my downtime, I love hanging out with friends, play trivia and crossword puzzles, listening to music (like classic rock and K-pop), and watching shows like "Monty Python's Flying Circus"!
