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 Daughter of Mystery by Heather Rose JonesReally truly actively, I think I’m down to Michael Coe’s book on Angkor Wat, and Heather Rose Jones’ Daughter of Mystery. This book on Angkor is more satisfying than the other one was — the other one ended up feeling like a list of names with descriptions of temple architecture, while this one deals a bit more with people (though it’s also a bit broader, looking at the Khmer civilisation in general).

Daughter of Mystery is proving a bit of a slow burn, but I’m fascinated with where it’s going to go! I love Barbara and her protectiveness of Margerit.

Cover of The Lost Plot by Genevieve CogmanWhat have you recently finished reading?

I finished Genevieve Cogman’s The Lost Plot while having a bit of a lie-in on Tuesday morning (this morning as I’m writing, yesterday morning as this is posted!), and I did enjoy it but am not sure how I feel about the resolution. I also finished rereading Rebel of the Sands, which is good fun: I want to go ahead and read the rest of the trilogy now.

Cover of One Way by S.J. MordenWhat will you be reading next? 

I really should finish S.J. Morden’s One Way, and then I have a bunch of books due back at the library, including Jeff Vandermeer’s Area X trilogy (I wanted a reread) and books on the ancient Celtic and Sumerian civilisations. Not sure which I’ll pick up, but I have been trying to read more fantasy/sci-fi after reading so much non-fiction for a while, so maybe I’ll get on with that reread!

How about you?

  1. Honestly, I’m reading less than I expected for having stopped work, but I think that’s because I’m still in shock about finishing work 😉
    I’m currently chugging through Hallowdene (a supernatural whodunnit), which is as entertaining as Wychwood (the first book in the series). Good scare season popcorn!

    On the blogging side, I am catching up on my overdue reviews tho – I might even manage to get ahead of myself next week if I keep it up!

  2. I just finished reading THE CITY OF BRASS (review up on the blog) and have been reading A MAN CALLED OVE, which is wildly different, to say the least. And next up? Hmm … maybe THE WHISPERER, which is crime fiction with over tones of horror.
