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.

Cover of Endless Forms Most Beautiful by Sean CarrollWhat are you currently reading?

Too much at once, as ever! Most actively, I’ve just got started on Endless Forms Most Beautiful, by Sean Carroll — it’s alll about Evo Devo, i.e. what embryology and development tells us about evolution. I bought it as a sort of knowledge top-up back before I actually read a bunch of papers on Evo Devo for my degree. It’s still interesting, but not surprising or as necessary to top up my knowledge anymore!

Cover of Legion by Brandon SandersonWhat have you recently finished reading?

I just finished reading the whole collected Legion: The Many Lives of Stephen Leeds. I’m still digesting that ending, and I’m not sure it’s what I wanted, but it sure is a fascinating concept and Sanderson is a great writer. Before that, I think the last thing I finished was Christie’s And Then There Were None, which I just gulped down, rather to my own surprise. Christie’s a better writer than I remember, every time.

Cover of The Lake District Murder by John BudeWhat will you be reading next?

I should focus on something I’ve got on the go, so probably I’ll reread more of Under Heaven, or really dig into John Bude’s The Lake District Murder. Or maybe Bernard Capes’ The Mystery of the Skeleton Key, since I do seem to be in the mood for Golden Age crime fiction! Or there’s always some library books, like Cameron Johnson’s The Traitor God.

      • If you’re looking for a horror(ish) book to read, I can highly recommend Hekla’s Children by James Brogden.

        In terms of my own reading, I’m trying (for the second time, apparently, according to the way I shelved it on Goodreads) to read The Girl in the Road. So far, it’s full of action and empty of engagement, which is not a great start, but I will try to persevere a little more this time.

        Yes, another book with “The Girl” in the title. Maybe I should write a book called “The Girl In The Title” just to confuse people.
