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 The Cruel Prince by Holly BlackWhat are you currently reading?

The Cruel Prince, by Holly Black, which… I’m quite tempted to ditch, actually, because it is not striking me as particularly fresh or original, and I’m honestly dragging through it at 50 pages a day, merely for obligation’s sake. I’m told it does pick up and become quite surprising, but I’m not sure I’m interested.

I’m also reading Late Eclipses, by Seanan McGuire. Which is probably a bad combo with The Cruel Prince, since the October Daye books are a long-running adult fantasy series with Fae and The Cruel Prince is a first-of-a-series young adult with Fae. Plus, Late Eclipses is a reread, so has the benefit of being familiar — though honestly, I’ve forgotten a lot of the details.

What have you recently finished reading?

I just finished Darwin Comes To Town, by Menno Schilthuizen. It was really fascinating — I love studies into natural selection in an urban environment, and there are some fascinating stories here. I wanted to eat it right up, though I ended up taking a few days over it.

What will you be reading next?

Don’t know! Probably The Fated Sky, by Mary Robinette Kowal, as that’s on my July TBR and probably a nice quick read after the way I’m struggling with The Cruel Prince.

  1. I would definitely have DNFed the Holly Black book if I’d had that feeling for it! At the moment I’m on the last bit of a trilogy about apocalypse weather extremes but the MC is ruining it for me a bit!
