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 Requiem for a Mezzo by Carola DunnI think the only thing I’m actively reading is Requiem for a Mezzo, which I haven’t picked up in a couple of weeks! I need to get back to reading more, but work seems to have taken over my head — that and Stardew Valley multiplayer. Oh, and I do have Adam Rutherford’s A Brief History of Everyone Who Ever Lived on the go, but I’m kind of meh about it. Almost nothing in it is new to me, so it’s boring me.

Cover of Samurai by John ManWhat have you recently finished reading?

Samurai, by John Man: it’s mostly about Saigō Takamori, but of course it talks about the samurai tradition that led to him. It’s amazing how wrong my mental calculations of Japanese chronology are: he only died in 1877, despite samurai still being armed with swords. And of course, the manga Rurouni Kenshin is set in the Meiji period, around the same time. Whaaaat.

Cover of The Mortal Word by Genevieve CogmanWhat will you be reading next?

Well, I just picked up a copy of Genevieve Cogman’s The Mortal Word… but I also just finally got my copy of Lies Sleeping, Ben Aaronovitch’s new book, so I guess those two are going to have to battle it out for which one I start next. Or I might be contrary and read something else altogether. It’s difficult to know; I’m far too driven by whim!

(Which is not a bad thing, to clarify; vive la whimsy.)

  1. I seem to have stopped reading again which is annoying as it means SF month was as unsuccessful as horror month overall! I’m just hoping to start ploughing into some books next month that I have doubts I’ll like or have mixed or bad reviews, in the hope I get some DNFs to clear a bit of shelf space!

  2. Oooh PC Grant vs Irene the Librarian – tough pick!

    I’ve just finished Kelly Robson’s Gods, Monsters and the Lucky Peach and finally got stuck into Record of a Spaceborn Few. I’ve got an overwhelming set of choices for what next, but it will probably be one of the 2 library reservations I’m going to pick up today as I really ought to finish them before next weekend! (Children of Blood and Bone and City of Lies)
