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?
Let’s see, what have I got in progress… I’m partway through Cherie Priest’s Brimstone, which I meant to read back when I got an ARC, but it always kept shuffling to the bottom of my pile somehow. I’ve got to 30% of the way through in a surprisingly short time; I’m definitely intrigued by the characters and how they’re going to come together.
I’m also still partway through An Accident of Stars, Kushiel’s Chosen and Too Like the Lightning. I know, I suck.
What have you recently finished reading?
Well, I just fled Brian Cox’s Universal, because though everything is really well explained, it still involves being able to clearly conceptualise numbers. If I have to, I can, but it’s not my favourite thing. So, that’s one book off the TBR.
In terms of actually finishing books, I think the last book I finished was my reread of Madam, Will You Talk? and before that, Sue Burke’s Semiosis, which I really need to put together my review of while it’s fresh in my mind. Short version: the narrative voices could have done with being more distinct, but otherwise I enjoyed the concepts explored.
I could tell you, but then I’d have to kill you. Well, no, obviously not, but I don’t really know where I’m going next. Maybe I’ll pick up Daggerspell for the Wyrd and Wonder readalong. (My mother is probably doing whatever adults do instead of a fistpump, having tried to make me read the Deverry books long ago. (I hope I’m misremembering the horrific homophobia, though I have read that there have been revisions now?)
