Background

WWW Wednesday is a weekly MEME hosted by Taking on a World of Words. The three W’s are as follows:

What did you recently finish reading?

What do you think you’ll read next?

And I’m adding my own section to this list:

Recently Reviewed

 

Recently Finished

 

Currently Reading

  • Queen of Attolia by Megan Whalen Turner (audiobook, reread)
    • As soon as I finished The Thief, I put a hold on the audio of book II and got it a few days later. I’m loving it much more, this time around; the twisty foreshadowing is much more apparent than it was when I was a younger reader.
    • Ever since enjoying McKinley’s The Blue Sword last year (5 STARS! You can check out my review right here!), I’ve been eager to read this “sort of prequel.” I’m loving it even more than The Blue Sword, amazingly!
  • The Collapsing Empire (The Interdependency #1) by John Scalzi
    • I’ve been wanting to read this ever since I heard of it, as John Scalzi has been on my tbr for a long time. I won it in a giveaway from the terrific spec fic blog, Book, Bones & Buffy. (Thank you so much! :D) So far, it’s just as hilarious and compelling as I’d hoped it would be.

 

TBR Next

  • Shadow’s Edge (Night Angel #2) by Brent Weeks

    • I completely loved The Way of Shadows last year and I’m finally getting a chance to read more of Kylar Stern’s story, thanks to my newfangled “2017 tbr” Goodreads shelf.
  • Full Fathom Five (Craft Sequence #3) by Max Gladstone

    • The first two Craft Sequence books ranked among my favorite books of 2016, so it’s high time to enjoy book three.
  • Arslan by M.J. Engh

    • Open Road Integrated Media has distinguished itself by republishing digital versions of older works, and I’ve enjoyed a few of them in the past. This 1970s dystopian sci-fi has a big reputation, so I’m excited to dig in during the next few weeks.

 

And that’s all for this roundup! Have you read or heard of any of these? What have you been reading lately? Link up to my post if you’ve done a roundup recently so I can see! 🙂

    I bought the omnibus of The Craft Sequence the other day. I only have the last book to read, but I may just have to shotgun the whole series again. Gladstone is awesome.

      Do it, do it 😀 Yeah, he is. I was soo tempted to buy the bundle, but I’m planning to get them in hard copy, so I resisted. Barely. Lol

  3. Aah, ‘Shadow’s Edge’ 🙂 I got so upset about Kylar doing stupid things in it, I haven’t picked it up again for ages 😀

  4. Well, that’s an impressive roundup! Way to go… way to go… 🙂
    Portal of a Thousand Worlds caught my attention some time ago, but reading your comment just moved it up the “next” list: how can I resist something “political, crude and hilariously clever”?

  5. I’m really loving the new covers for the Queen’s Thief series!

    Also I just got the audiobook for Way of Shadows from the library and should be starting in shortly so we’ll be reading it around the same time! There are a few mixed reviews for it, so it’ll be interesting to see what it’s like. Most of the reviews do say the second half picks up so hopefully it’s good.

        I know, those new covers = ❤ I'm so glad they updated them. The others worked well, but these are stunning!

        Oh good, we can be reading buddies for Shadow's Edge 😀 I'll keep an eye out for you GR updates!

        • I need to try and finish the one I’m currently reading that is due tomorrow, then I might start or I might finish off the other audiobook I’m reading, I haven’t decided yet. For way of Shadows I did a read and listen together thing for some of it and I would like to be able to do that for this one ttoo if I want so I think a stop at the library is in order.

            That’s how I do large books, too, reading by book and via audio. It’s just so hard to find the hours and hours required to finish it, otherwise! But at least you finished Way of Shadows- I know that was an important goal since it was on your currently-reading shelf for a while 😀

    • Christy Luis says:

      Yes, thank you so much for sending it 😀 I really enjoyed my first Scalzi *fistpump*

      Thanks Lol Audiobooks help a lot…and it helps that I haven’t done a “roundup” post since early Feb- so this is two months worth of reading for me!
