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?
Frozen by Melissa de la Cruz and Michael Johnston
2. Go to page 34 in your book or 34% in your eBook and share a couple of sentences.

Taking slaves, selling ’em to the outlaw territories.” He shook his head. “Besides, remember what happened to Joe? Bounty hunters find out you’re itching to jump, they’ll turn you in for the reward for snitching.” That was what everyone believed – that Joe had been turned in for blood money. Jumper watt, someone had snitched. “Besides, you need mucho credit to pay a runner.”
3. Would you like to live in the world that exists within your book? Why or why not?
It’s several generations into the future. The world is in a major freeze falling what I assume was a nuclear war. Either way, the world’s polluted and everyone’s struggling to survive. Yeah… not my type of place to live.
