What Are You Reading Wednesdays #WAYRW is a weekly feature on It’s A Reading Thing. It’s fairly straight forward. Just answer a few simple questions about the book you are currently reading and the post it. If you use the image above, please make sure you link it back to It’s A Reading Thing.
How to participate:
Grab the book you are currently reading and answer three questions:
1. What’s the name of your current read?
Cross Justice by James Patterson
2. Go to page 34 in your book or 34% in your eBook and share a couple of sentences.
I spotted three people on the porch. A tall man with iron-gray hair wearing a blue suit and a blond, sharply dressed woman in her fifties were engaged in a furious argument with a sandy-haired younger woman in cutoff shorts and a red T-shirt.
The younger woman sounded drunk when she shrieked: “That’s bullshit! You never gave a shit about him alive! Leave my house and stay the hell out of my life!”
3. Would you like to live in the world that exists within your book? Why or why not?
Yes and no. Yes, because I would totally be responsible for murdering Nana Mama. If you haven’t read the series, you may not understand this, but she is Alex Cross’s grandmother. I know that sounds terrible, but she is by far the most racist character I have ever read in a book that’s not geared towards racism. She’s constantly putting down any caucasian characters that exist, with the exception of Cross’s foster daughter who magically turned white in the last book. Also, she does nothing and I mean, nothing, but nag him about his job and how many hours he spends doing it. If he were a lawyer or corporate type, I’d understand. But seeing as he started off the series as a police detective, give me a freaking break.
So yeah… here’s where the no comes in… If I murder poor annoying, racist, nagging Nana Mama, then I have to worry about Alex Cross magically figuring out how I did it and either dying or being thrown in jail. Thus making me look like the world’s biggest bad guy, when in truth I would be doing it a huge favor.
Yes, it would be very hard not to at least push her off the porch… 🙂
Here’s my WAYRW post.
