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 Kushiel's Chosen by Jacqueline CareyMost actively, it’s just Kushiel’s Chosen by Jacqueline Carey, which is a reread. I’m juuust at the point where I kind of want to stop and bang Joscelin and Phèdre’s heads together for a solid minute until they stop hurting each other and communicate properly. Honestly, yeesh.

I’ve realised I can’t remember if all of Phèdre’s chevaliers make it through the trilogy, and I have a sudden bad feeling…

What have you recently finished reading?

Cover of The Black Tides of Heaven by JY YangI finally read The Black Tides of Heaven by JY Yang. I love the world, I’m really intrigued by all of it — the magic, the society, what happens next for them… I loved the twin that this book focuses on, and I’m a little reluctant to move on and spend time with the ‘main’ twin. I mean, his whole plot was about being a spare, and reading other reviews it’s like his story is just set-up for his sister’s. Bah.

What will you be reading next?

Cover of The Red Threads of Fortune by JY YangProbably The Red Threads of Fortune, though I might take a break and dig into another of the British Library Crime Classics, just for the sake of spending some cozy time with something relatively classic and predictable. My brain’s tired: so many deadlines.

Speaking of which, if I owe you comments, etc. I will get to them, I promise! Just, so much to do!

What are you reading?

  1. Aaaaaaah, Kushiel’s Chosen. Yes, there’s definitely a point where I just want to yell at them too!

    I really loved Red Threads, but I totally get your point that it makes Black Tides feel like a lot of set-up (it pretty much does).

    I’m racing through City of Brass, which is entertaining me enormously by being a lot of familiar tropes in the unusual setting of a city of djinn. I just realised I should stop and read the first half of Daggerspell instead though – either that, or I’m packing a trade edition to take to the US with me which sounds… heavy 😉

  2. I can’t remember my last reread for fun! In the last few years my rereads have been functional, y’know, having to read the first one to refresh my memory before continuing a series. I might have to do a Harry Potter reread to get out of my slump…

    • I think that sounds like a great idea! I’m trying to “let” myself reread whenever I feel like it, because it really is pure fun.
