WWW Wednesday is a weekly book tag hosted by Taking on a World of Words that is all about what we’re currently reading. As I mentioned in my previous WWW, I tend to read a lot of books at once over several formats. It means I generally always have something ready to read and also helps battle reading fatigue and slumps because I have different formats and genres to choose from.
Still, though, reading a bunch of books at once isn’t for everyone so if my first “W” sends you screaming for the hills I totally understand.
The Three Ws are:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
Full Throttle by Joe Hill is a collection of stories mostly written by the author himself but at least one of them has been co-written with his father Stephen King. I’m listening to it as an audiobook because it features two of my favorite narrators, Wil Wheaton and Kate Mulgrew, plus a few other voices I’m excited to be hearing like Zachary Quinto. Notice a Star Trek theme here?
I’m listening to it one story at a time since I’m in the middle of so many books at the moment. I’ve only listened to two but both have been pretty interesting, especially the first one that he wrote with his dad.
Break No Bones by Kathy Reichs is one I’ve been reading for awhile, picking it up when I need to read something that doesn’t need too much concentration. It’s not my favorite Bones book so far but it’s still a comfort read for me. I love these characters!
Dragon’s Egg by Robert L. Forward was featured on my First Impressions Friday post last week. I’m still really digging this mind bending piece of sci-fi, but with the migraine I’ve been suffering from this week the book is a bit too hardcore for me to read at the moment. Hopefully I can get back into it soon!
The New Voices of Science Fiction edited by Hannu Rajaiemi and Jacob Weisman is another one I’m reading one story at a time. It’s an ARC so I really do need to get going on it.
Death in Her Hands by Ottessa Moshfegh is an ARC as well and I’m about a third of the way through. I wasn’t sure what to expect given that I was pretty creeped out by the author’s 2017 short story collection, but while also creepy, Death in Her Hands has been really compelling.
Prelude to Foundation by Isaac Asimov is technically on the backburner because the library copy I was reading had to be sent back- when I only had about 100 pages left no less! Arghhh. I should be getting another copy soon though.
I actually haven’t finished reading anything since my last WWW installment but a couple of the books I’m reading are nearly finished so watch this space!
An Orchestra of Minorities by Chigozie Obioma is a book I requested recently from my library and has just become available. Once I finish one or two of the books I’m currently reading I’ll start this one.
The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern is a very buzzy book at the moment. Even though I wasn’t over the moon with The Night Circus (sorry), I’m looking forward to this one.
Those are my WWW books! Have you read any of these? What are you currently reading? Let me know in the comments!
