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 Lent by Jo WaltonWhat are you currently reading?

A couple of things at once, as usual. First of all, Jo Walton’s Lent, as predicted! I started it while I was in the hairdresser, and read a massive chunk all in one go. It’s interesting to be experiencing a likeable (in many ways) and relatable Savonarola, after he’s kind of a complete power-hungry asshole in Assassin’s Creed 2. I am interested to see where this goes, and I do wish I could keep this period of history a little straighter in my head. Who did what, why, when? Totally muddled by first Assassin’s Creed and then Jo!

I’m also reading Storm of Locusts, by Rebecca Roanhorse. I’m side-eyeing just about every character a lot and not trusting anything much.

Cover of All Systems Red by Martha WellsWhat have you recently finished reading?

I reread Martha Wells’ All Systems Red, and it was just as fun a second time. I love poor Murderbot, struggling with having feelings and being treated like a person. I also finished off my reread of The Voyage of the Basilisk; it’s funny remembering reading it the first time, with noooo idea where things would go. It’s kind of exciting reading it again, knowing where Isabella is wrong and where she’s guessing right, and what happens on a personal level.

Cover of Revenant Gun by Yoon Ha LeeWhat will you be reading next?

Revenant Gun, I think. I need to read it for my June TBR, and for sorting out my Hugo voting, and my wife loved it. I loved it when I read the first quarter or so back during my exams last year… I just didn’t pick it back up afterwards, out of my usual mood readery pain in the buttness. It’s going to be good!

I am also partway through The Bitter Twins (Jen Williams), and I should get back to that.

What are you currently reading?

  1. We’re reading the same books 🙂 I’ve just finished All Systems Red (and enjoyed it even more the second time around), and I’ve just started The Bitter Twins (gosh, those opening chapters are dark). Both far more to my taste than Space Opera. I’m going to retrospectively revise my assessment of Palimpsest just not suiting me because I had a headache now I have evidence that yes, Cat Valente CAN give me a headache whilst I’m perfectly healthy. Hrm.
