WWW Wednesday

Posted August 5, 2020 by Nicky in General / 4 Comments

It’s Wednesday again! So here’s the usual check-in. You can go to Taking On A World Of Words to chat with everyone else who has posted what they’re reading right now!

Cover of A Scream in Soho by John G. BrandonWhat are you currently reading?

Probably a bunch of stuff that I’ve accidentally put down when I didn’t mean to… but primarily, I’ve just started A Scream in Soho, by John G. Brandon. There’s so much period-typical racial stereotyping (largely about Italians, but Germans too), and the murdered person is… well, the way the story puts it is that it’s a man disguised as a woman. Which the plot will probably bear out, given they’re probably a spy. Still, it’s not exactly aged well in various ways.

Cover of Lock In by John ScalziWhat have you recently finished reading?

I devoured a reread of John Scalzi’s Lock In, and then followed it up with the sequel, Head On. I’ve been meaning to read it for ages, and I didn’t really need the reread of the first book… but it was nice. I still need to sit down and do my review of Head On and think through it, but I tore through both books.

Cover of The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet by Becky ChambersWhat will you be reading next?

Goodness knows! I want to reread The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet for a Habitica book club readalong, so there’s that… but I also just got my replacement ereader and I had a bunch of books part-read on Libby that I need to get into the queues for again. If they’re not currently reserved, maybe I’ll be able to grab them and restart on those.

But as usual, it could really be anything.

  1. I’m having a bit of a rollercoaster week. I reread The Poppy War (which packs less of a punch second time around, because fore-warned is at least braced for impact; it’s still a helluva punch) and inhaled Gideon the Ninth (AAAAH) and then treacled through David Mogo Godhunter. Now, much to my surprise, I’m enjoying Adrian Tchaikovsky – with The Doors of Eden he seems to have finally written a book I can subjectively like rather than objectively appreciate. Yay! I’ve got a 4 day weekend this weekend, so planning to finish it and get back to Rebecca Kuang before I pick up my last two Subjective Chaos finalists.

    • I really should read The Poppy War, but I’m also so not ready to be punched in the feels. And ack, I need to read Gideon the Ninth, too!
