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?
Actively, Laura Lam’s Pantomime. And I’m probably going to finish it today! For some reason I didn’t really get into it before, but this time I’m tearing through it. Right time, I guess? That and I have a challenge to read two books from my currently reading pile for one new book (whether that’s actually new or a reread). It’s actually working really well for me, for once; I’m down to eight, counting Pantomime.
What have you recently finished reading?
Zika: The Emerging Epidemic; I found it really interesting, although it’s by a science reporter rather than a scientist who has actually been researching Zika directly. Sometimes I didn’t quite fall in with the tone — he goes a bit Not All Men for a while about women’s worries about pregnancy through rape — but I didn’t disagree with his campaign to get the CDC, etc, to issue the advice that women should delay pregnancy if possible. I’ll probably write more about this in my review, but yeah. I totally agree with the advice and if anyone reaaaally needs me to explain why, I can always do a post on my science blog.
What will you be reading next?
I think I’ll target finishing Raven Stratagem next. I think I only stopped reading it because I forgot to take it on the plane to Canada, or something like that, and I’m now in the same place as my copy again. My copy that I bought urgently after finishing the first book. Oops.
Other than that, for a Habitica challenge I’m going to read Castles: Their History and Evolution in Medieval Britain, by Marc Morris. I’ve been meaning to read this for a while and it fits into the Dewey Decimal category for this month, so it’s the perfect excuse.
