It’s that time again! Check out Taking On A World Of Words to chat with everyone else who has posted what they’re reading right now!

Cover of Grave Importance by Vivian ShawWhat are you currently reading?

Non-fiction: No progress since last week!

Fiction: I’m 60% of the way through Grave Importance (Vivian Shaw), and honestly, I’m mad every time I have to put it down and double mad I didn’t get to read it at all today. Maybe a liiiittle before bed? Anyway, this series is solid comfort for me: despite everything bad that goes on, Greta does her best to be a doctor, to take care of people whether she likes them or not, whether they’re even good people or not. And she has such a good found family around her, though I’m afraid Ruthven is my favourite forever and ever. And I love the little details like the baby screaming skulls and 3D printed replacement bones for mummies.

I’m also 30% of the way through Network Effect (Martha Wells). Obviously I couldn’t just say no to my wife reading it too, so I’m waiting for her to catch up. All I have to say so far is oh nooooo.

Cover of A Treacherous Curse by Deanna RaybournWhat have you recently finished?

Er. I’m not sure. It was during the readathon on the weekend, probably, so… A Treacherous Curse (Deanna Raybourn)? Always solid fun, though I can’t quite view them as proper historical fiction with everything Veronica gets up to (without even the good taste to have more money than God in order to excuse her peccadilloes).

Cover of Goldilocks by Laura LamWhat will you read next?

Who knooooows? I probably want to finish up Goldilocks (Laura Lam) and The Ten Thousand Doors of January (Alix E. Harrow). I’m annoyed I stopped reading The Ten Thousand Doors of January, because I was inhaling it, and it’s not even that I’m not in the mood — I just got distracted.

    Oh, this reminds me that I want to read Strange Practice! I have it on my kindle, I love the concept of a doctor for everyone, monsters included.
    I’ve taken a break from fantasy and I’m reading some novellas by Nikolai Leskow right now… I love the writing and, let’s say, the absence of lengthy descriptions, compared to other russian works 🙂

  2. I need to reread Strange Practice and see about the rest of this series. I was irritated by the romance at the end of SP, but I’ll forgive a lot to hang out with Ruthven some more.

    After a few days of not reading at all, I went back to Kingdom of Souls last night and am restarting it from scratch. My head seems to be in a slightly better place, so hopefully I won’t get too distracted by The Goblin Emperor when I pick that up on Sundayish for the read-along 😉

    • If the romance is a dealbreaker, it is actually a bigger and bigger thing through Dreadful Company and Grave Importance! I don’t know what annoyed you about it, though; for me, I think I kinda rolled my eyes the first time because really? With all this awesome stuff we need a romance thrown in??? But I don’t know, I’ve been won over, it’s cute (and doesn’t waste a ton of time going will-they-won’t-they, and it’s good for both characters).
