WWW Wednesday – 7 September 2022

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words, where bloggers share the books that they’ve recently finished, what they are currently reading and what books they are planning to read next. Essentially you have to answer three questions (the Three Ws):

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

So, let’s get to it.

What are you currently reading?

No Country for Girls by Emma Styles (Trade Paperback)

No Country for Girls Cover

I just started reading the fantastic Australian crime fiction debut, No Country for Girls by new author Emma Styles.  Set in the Western Australian outback, No Country for Girls is an intense and compelling novel that sees two strangers embark on a deadly road trip after becoming accomplices in a crime.  I’ve made a bit of progress on this book already and it is turning out to be an excellent and fun read.  I look forward to seeing how it turns out in the end, but I can already tell you that this is going to be one of the more interesting Australian books of 2022.

Glacier’s Edge by R. A. Salvatore (Audiobook)

Glacier's Edge Cover

I was really hoping to have finished Glacier’s Edge by now, but a few things got in my way this last week.  However, I am nearly finished this sequel to Starlight Enclave, and should knock it out in the next day or so.  I am really getting into this amazing book, and it is proving to be an outstanding addition to the larger Drizzt Do’Urden series (which includes TimelessBoundless and Relentless). I look forward to seeing what happens in Glacier’s Edge’s final moments, and it will be interesting to see how Salvatore leads into his next epic novel.

What did you recently finish reading?

All of Our Demise by Amanda Foody and Christine Lynn Herman (Trade Paperback)

All of Our Demise Cover

I managed to knock off All of Our Demise this week and it proved to be just as good, if not better, than the first novel in this duology, All of Us Villains.  The impressive team of Amanda Foody and Christine Lynn Herman did a remarkable job with All of Our Demise, and I had an exceptional time seeing how this series came to an end.  There are some big twists, epic surprises, and so much damn amazing character work, that you will come away from this book shocked, moved, and deeply satisfied.  This really is one of the best young adult books of 2022, and it comes very highly recommended.  Review to follow soon.

What do you think you’ll read next?

Dark Rooms by Lynda La Plante

Dark Rooms Cover

Based on my current collection of books, I think that the novel I will read next is Dark Rooms by leading crime fiction author Lynda La Plante.  The latest book in the bestselling Tennison series (which has included awesome reads like Murder MileBlunt Force and Unholy Murder), Dark Rooms looks set to contain another fantastic and thrilling murder mystery which I know I will get very wrapped up in.  I have no doubt that I am going to love Dark Rooms, as La Plante’ captivating writing style has never disappointed me before.

Act of Oblivion by Robert Harris

Act of Oblivion Cover

In the next week I will also try and read Act of Oblivion by bestselling author Robert Harris.  I have deeply enjoyed some of Harris’s historical fiction novels in the past, and he can create some gripping and extremely addictive reads, especially if he bases it on an exceptional historical event.  Well, his new novel, Act of Oblivion definitely has one of those, and I am extremely hopeful this will result in a particularly good read.  Act of Oblivion follows the hunt for two of the men responsible for the execution of King Charles I and will see the two fugitives flee to the American colonies whilst being pursued by the British.  This novel has so much potential, and I can’t wait to see how Harris portrays these epic historical events.

Essex Dogs by Dan Jones

Essex Dogs Cover

I am also hoping to read the very intriguing historical fiction debut, Essex Dogs, in the next week.  The first book from new author Dan Jones, Essex Dogs sounds like a fantastic and fun medieval adventure that I know I am going to enjoy.  Following a group of mercenaries who get drafted into the Hundred Year’s War, Essex Dogs has an amazing plot behind it, and I can’t wait to see what happens to this close-nit band of fighters during this conflict.  I have been meaning to read this book for a while, and I am very excited to finally be able to read this debut.
