It’s WWW Wednesday, a tag hosted on Taking on a World of Words It’s easy to do, just answer the three questions below!
What are you currently reading?
My current Buddy Read with Bae (TM pending) is a reread of The Way of Kings. I first read the Stormlight Archive books in 2018, right before I started this blog. And due to some library hold mishaps, I only had 21 days to finish all 3 massive, 1000+ page books. So to say the details of this series have slipped my mind would be quite the understatement. So, I’m so happy to be back in this world and actually knowing what’s going on all the time. That’s what kept me from giving TWOK a full 5 stars the first time (it took too long to feel like I knew where the story was headed). I imagine it’ll be promoted upon this reread.
What did you recently finish reading?
Full/mini reviews for these coming soonish
H is For Hawk: A nonfiction/memoir following a woman who is grieving the death of her father and loses herself in training a hawk. Lots of great ruminations about life and nature in here, so I’m glad I finally picked it up after it sitting on my shelves for so long. Finished this one up Monday morning
These next two were buddy reads over the long weekend: How to Defeat a Demon King in Ten Easy Steps, by Andrew Rowe, and The Last Emperox, the last book in The Interdependency series by John Scalzi. Both of these were pretty great, on different calibers. The Last Emperox was an explosive conclusion to the already great sci-fi series. Then the Audible Original novella was just so fun, a LitRPG straight out of a Legend of Zelda game. It has all the great humor that you can expect from a Rowe novel, great for gamer fans.
What do you think you’ll read next?
Since I did so terribly at reading from my shelves in the past few months, I decided to do something similar to “try a chapter” tags, just downloading the audiobook of a bunch of books I have on my shelves, trying them out and then putting them on the unhaul pile if they aren’t working for me. So I’m planning to keep doing that for the rest of May, before I shift focus to clearing out my digital shelves for June. Next on the tryout bench include All The Birds in the Sky, The Philosopher’s Flight and A Study in Honor.
