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’ve been struggling to read anything sci fi or fantasy lately but when a publisher sent me a widget for Every Sky a Grave by Jay Posey I figured this may be the book to get me back into the genre. I started reading it on Monday and haven’t made much progress, but I’m still hoping that once I sit down and focus it’ll hook me. I do love the idea of words having a power and the start was pretty action packed.
On audio I’ve been listening to Red Rising by Pierce Brown. I keep meaning to get back into this series, I’ve read the original trilogy but no further, so thought it might be fun to do the audio to remind myself of everything that happened before starting Iron Gold.
It’s been a few months since I last did a WWW Wednesday post but don’t worry I won’t list all of the books I’ve read in that time here (although I may do a post with my faves some point soon). These are the books I’ve read over the last week and a bit (I haven’t been tracking my reading and time is weird right now).
- There’s No Such Thing as an Easy Job by Kikuko Tsumura – This was a book I picked based purely on the cover, there’s just something very relateable about it 😀 It’s also been a while since I’ve read any Japanese fiction and I’ve kind of missed it. If you do enjoy Japanese fiction this is a really enjoyable read. It’s quite quirky and different and while lacking a little in terms of emotion is very engaging.
- East of Hounslow by Khurrum Rahman – The company I work for have relaunched the book club so this was last week’s read. I’m not generally a reader of spy thrillers and struggled to get started on this but once I got into it I found myself flying through it and the ending in particular was edge of the seat stuff. I’ve been tempted to keep going with this series
- Obsidio by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff – I finished the Illuminae Files!!! I am both very happy and completely devastated. It’s an absolutely brilliant trilogy and works so well on audio despite the weird format of the book.
- Love the One You Hate by R.S. Grey – I like Grey’s writing and this was another enjoyable read from her. There’s nothing especially stand out or memorable but there’s a real summer feel to it which makes it the perfect bit of escapism.
I posted a Summer TBR a couple of weeks ago so I’m going to try and knock a couple more books off that, maybe Take a Hint, Dani Brown or One to Watch (I’m in a contemporary romance kind of mood). I may however wander off a little with YA fantasy Fable.
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 🙂
