What are you reading Wednesday

Posted February 23, 2017 by Nicky in General / 4 Comments

It’s only a little late! And hey, now I’m out of assignment hell… for now.

What have you recently finished reading?

Nothing, this week! The last thing I finished was a reread of Mary Stewart’s This Rough Magic, on… Thursday? Yes, I’m suffering withdrawal symptoms. I could probably do with another Mary Stewart reread, for something familiar — This Rough Magic is a total comfort read, like all Stewart’s books for me.

What are you currently reading?

On the Origin of Species is the book I’m reading most actively. So close to finishing it! It amazes me how right Darwin managed to be, given his limited understanding of genetics. I’ve also still got my reread of The Dragonbone Chair and the ARC of The Stars Are Legion on the go.

Oh, and I also newly started After Atlas, by Emma Newman, which I was devouring before my assignment took over everything. And I was also reading Brother’s Ruin, her new novella, which I got as an ARC. I’m enjoying that, too.

What are you planning to read next?

Once I’ve finished with Darwin, I’m going to focus on finishing The Stars Are Legion, After Atlas and Brother’s Ruin. Probably in the reverse of that order. I might also fit in a comfort read like a Mary Stewart book; I’m thinking maybe My Brother Michael, or Nine Coaches Waiting. After that, I’m not sure: the possibilities are endless.

  1. At the moment I’m reading a zombie book (surprise!) called Rise of the Dead by Jeremy Dyson. It’s decent enough but just lacking something to make it great. I’m planning some kind of apocalypse book when I finish it today. There is nothing like cuddling up to a nice comfort read…enjoy!

    I made heavy weather of On the Origin of Species but found it well worthwhile, nevertheless. One of the most remarkable features of the book, for me, at least, is Darwin’s understanding of the problems with his own theory and willingness to openly and honestly discuss them in the book, rather than trying to brush them under the carpet. Coincidentally I’ve just finished a short biography of Darwin.
