The WWW Wednesday meme is hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words and is a great way to do a weekly update on what you’ve been reading and what you have planned.
To take part all you have to do is answer the following three questions:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
I seem to be mostly in a sci fi mood at the moment so started reading Skyward by Brandon Sanderson at the weekend and am absolutely loving it. So much so that I expect I’ll probably finish it today. I’ve been wracking my brains trying to figure out what it reminds me of (there’s something reassuringly familiar about the story) and I think I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s kind of Top Gun with maybe a dash of Enders Game thrown in. It’s all about a girl training to become a fighter pilot and while it has many of the usual competition/YA clichés it’s an incredibly enjoyable read and a completely immersive experience.
Between a really busy week at work and being ill I haven’t had a lot of time for reading or the energy to focus on anything (staying awake has been enough of a struggle). I did however manage to finish Aurora Rising by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. This was my first book from either of these authors and it was a really fun one. Kind of reminded me of Firefly with a ragtag group of misfits whose first mission goes a little awry. There’s loads of action, a lot of banter and a few surprises along the way. It is told from multiple pov’s which is not my fave but I will most definitely getting the next book in the series (and probably reading the authors’ other books in the meantime).
I’m still a little all over the place reading wise at the moment so rather than committing to anything I’m just going to list the books I’ve bought, borrowed or received in the last week.
Have you read any of the books on my list this week? Any others you’d recommend? As always please feel free to leave comments and links below.
Happy Reading ❤
