WWW Wednesday – 2.13.19

Welcome to WWW Wednesday! This meme was formerly hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm and revived on Taking on a World of Words. If you participated in your own post, please feel free to leave a link in the comments, so I and others can see! Otherwise, feel free to leave a comment with your responses. I’m always happy to hear what other people are reading.

The Three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

Things have been busy, so here’s an update!

What are you currently reading?

I’ve started Obsidio by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff, and it’s already surprised me because of who the main characters are. I’m excited to get to know them and also see how this insane trilogy is going to possibly conclude.

I’m doing it. I’ve officially started back on reading Gun Moll and Vision of the Future. The former, I started over from the beginning, and it is going to take a pure act of will to finish it because the writing is…a lot worse than I remember. And the romance is completely contrived and painful to read, and I don’t say that lightly. I was too far into Vision of the Future to start it over, so I’m hoping I’ll remember the smaller plot points I’ve forgotten about as I read. Already, though, I’m enjoying seeing Han, Lando, and the Imperial characters on the page again. It’s refreshingly Star Wars at its best.

What did you recently finish reading?

I finished the ARC of The Night Tiger by Yangsze Choo, and it was such an enjoyable experience, full of interesting characters, an immersive setting, and gorgeous prose. I loved how Choo tied the mystery within the novel to the five Confucian virtues, thereby weaving all of the characters together in an intricate web that always kept the reader guessing. If you love historical fiction with the right dash of magical realism, you will not want to miss Choo’s sophomore novel. [Review]

I also finished an ARC of A Dangerous Collaboration by Deanna Raybourn, the fourth novel in the Veronica Speedwell series. Unlike with some mystery series, I do encourage you to read this one in order, simply because the relationships between the main characters build and develop even as the mysteries change from novel to novel. I really liked the setting and build-up of this mystery, but it’s the evolution of Veronica and Stoker’s relationship that truly fueled me here. They continue to be so entertaining to read about. [Review]

What do you think you’ll read next?

I have an ARC of White Stag that I’ve been meaning to get to, so I’m going to be focusing on that first as far as ARCs are concerned, unless something changes.

I want to roundoff the Warcross duology by finally reading Wildcard by Marie Lu. I loved the first book, but I’ve heard some vague, mixed things about the second. I’m going into it with an open mind.

Finally, I’m going to read Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi, not just because it’s Black History Month, but because I’ve had this book for far too long, and It’s Time. I’d say of the three books here, this one is the one I’m most hyped for!
