WWW Wednesday: 13th of May 2020


WWW Wednesday is a weekly book tag hosted by Taking on a World of Words that is all about what we’re currently reading.

Disclaimer: I tend to read a lot of books at once across e-books, physical books, and audiobooks. It helps me battle reading fatigue and slumps because I always have various different formats and genres to choose from to suit my mood. However, I realize 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.big-blue-divider-hi

Currently Reading:

  • Watson on the Orient Express is an ARC I was sent and it’s been a delightful read. Full review to come once it’s finished!
  • The Portable Dorothy Parker is one I’ve been going back to here and there, but it really does deserve a block of time dedicated to it.
  • Tomb of Gods is an ARC I’m going to be on a blog tour for so watch this space! As an archaeologist who never outgrew her Egypt phase, this book is right up my alley.
  • I’m so excited yet also so sad to be reading the final Diviners novel, The King of Crows. These books are the absolute cat’s pajama’s so I’ll be hard to be leaving these characters behind. On the plus side, though, it’s a lengthy installment so I won’t be saying goodbye just yet!
  • I was nearly finished with The Night Watchman when my library loan was up. Arghhhh. I’m eagerly back on a waiting list for it so hopefully I’ll be able to finish it soon. What I’ve read has been quite touching and powerful so I’m itching to read more.
  • A buddy read with a fellow Trekkie, Rivers of London was not what I was expecting at all. But that’s a good thing! It’s rare that a book makes me laugh out loud but this one has managed to do it several times.


  • Overall I liked Ninth House, however it took about two thirds of the book for me to start to feel that way. I think this is down to it being the first book in what looks like is going to be an intense series. Because of that, its pages are pretty information heavy so it’s hard to find your footing amidst the non-stop scene setting as it all comes flying at you. I would hesitate to recommend this book to anyone who doesn’t want to get invested in a new series. I, on the other hand, am really looking forward to what’s coming next.
  • A Thousand Moons was a lovely piece of historical fiction that I’ll be reviewing on my blog this week so keep an eye out.
  • I finally did it! I finished Dragon’s Egg! It was such an impressive work of hard science fiction! I’m geared up to read the sequel now, but it’s not an easy book to get a copy of. Which is weird because I would expect something like this to be more popular in sci-fi circles. It did inspire my favorite episode of any Star Trek series after all!
  • It’s not often that a book utterly destroys me, but boy did The Invincible Summer of Juniper Jones come at me right in the feels. I’ll be posting a full review here soon, but just know that this book will move you in that way only the best of books can. I haven’t been this affected by a book since The Book Thief and now I’m going to have to change the subject before thinking about those books turns me in a puddle on the floor.

Up Next

I’ve got some stellar military science fiction heading my way with some ARC’s Flame Tree Press and Angry Robot sent me. The City Among the Stars, The Bayern Agenda, and The Aleph Extraction are three books I’m looking forward to starting. In my opinion, military sci-fi is the best genre to fully lose yourself within and right now I think that’s something we all need!


Have you read any of these or have plans to? What made it to your WWW this week? Let me know in the comments!

    1. I was really enjoying it so I was pretty bummed out to have to return it back to the library. I should be getting it back in about a month, can’t wait to finish it.


  1. I’m happy to hear you are enjoying Rivers Of London! It wasn’t what I expected for me either, but I really enjoyed my time with the Peter Grant series so far. Happy reading! Here’s my WWW.

    1. I’m not sure what I was expecting, I just bought it because I’d noticed people mentioning it on various reviews. So I already had a copy when my friend suggested we buddy read. I didn’t even look at the blurb on the back, I just started reading it. “Oh okay, so there’s ghosts and wizards, cool!” haha
