The three ‘W’s are what are you reading now, what have you recently finished reading, and what are you going to read next, and you can find this week’s post at the host’s blog here if you want to check out other posts.

What are you currently reading?

Cover of The Carpet Makers by Andreas EschbachI’m rereading Andreas Eschbach’s The Carpet Makers, because I’ve been meaning to and it was there when I couldn’t sleep and didn’t feel like starting something new. I’m also reading Pantomime, by Laura Lam, though I’m not very far into it, and The Bear and the Nightingale, by Katherine Arden. I’m about halfway through the latter and not entirely sure what I think. I’m finding it somewhat predictable so far. I’m still reading Assassin’s Apprentice, too.

Cover of Hengeworld by Mike PittsWhat have you recently finished reading?

Hengeworld, by Mike Pitts. It’s an examination of the whole ritual landscape in palaeolithic times, mostly in Wessex — Stonehenge, Avebury, Silbury Hill and other associated monuments. It’s pretty fascinating, and it digs deep into all the different digs which have gone on at those sites.

What will you read next?Cover of Kushiel's Dart by Jacqueline Carey

I think I’m going to embark on my reread of Jacqueline Carey’s work, starting with Kushiel’s Dart. It’s been ages since I read it, and I conveniently have copies of this trilogy available both at my wife’s and at my parents’ place, so I don’t have to drag them around while travelling.

  1. I’ve a feeling I borrowed ‘Hengeworld’ from the library, but many moons ago — is that my imagination or is it a new title?

    I’m reading Jenny Diski’s memoir ‘Skating to Antarctica’ from 20 years ago — brilliantly written so far, and very readable — and Ursula Le Guin’s ‘The Word for World is Forest’ which I was surprised I hadn’t read before as it seems very familiar (though it reprises anthropological and ecological themes that she has used elsewhere).

    • It’s from 2000ish, from memory!

      I do occasionally run across Le Guin books I haven’t read, and wondered how I missed them. She’s been surprisingly prolific!
