WWW Wednesday – 5 October 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?

Star Wars: The Princess and the Scoundrel by Beth Revis (Trade Paperback)

Star Wars - The Princess and the Scoundrel Cover

I didn’t make as much progress with the new Star Wars release, The Princess and the Scoundrel by Beth Revis, this week as I would have liked.  Still, I am about halfway through it at the moment, and I will make an effort to finish it off in the next day or so, especially as this is proving to be quite an interesting read.  Set immediately after the events of Return of the Jedi, this book explores the relationship between Han Solo and Princess Leia in the current Star Wars canon.  Featuring both their wedding and their turbulent honeymoon, this is a must-read for all Star Wars fans, and I am already having a great time getting through it.

Warhammer 40,000: Storm of Iron by Graham McNeill (Audiobook)

Storm of Iron Cover

I was in the mood for some classic Warhammer 40,000 adventures so I decided to check out the awesome sounding Storm of Iron by Graham McNeill.  An older Warhammer 40,000 novel, Storm of Iron depicts a massive siege that see the infamous Iron Warriors Chaos Space Marines use all their craft to attack an impregnatable fortress.  I have only just started listening to this book, but I know I am going to have an outstanding time with Storm of Iron.

The Martyr by Anthony Ryan (Audiobook)

The Martyr Cover

I absolutely powered through the new Anthony Ryan book, The Martyr, in the last week and it really lived up to all my expectations and more.  One of my most anticipated books of the year and the sequel to the impressive 2021 novel, The PariahThe Martyr is a brilliant fantasy adventure about a young bandit turned scribe who finds his fate bound to a bold and pious warrior woman, who is set to bring real change to an intriguing fantasy realm.  This second novel sees his quest get even more dangerous and complex, as he begins to understand the full implications of everything he is involved with, while also finding himself thrust into several deadly wars.  This was a deeply captivating, powerful and exciting read that I had such an exceptional time getting through.  A perfect follow-up to The Pariah, The Martyr is one of the best fantasy books of 2022 and comes highly recommended.  Review to follow soon.

What do you think you’ll read next?

Fairy Tale by Stephen King

Fairy Tale Cover

I am still planning to read the new Stephen King novel, Fairy Tale, next, which should prove to be pretty epic.  An intense and dark novel about a dangerous fairy realm, this book is going to be awesome and I can’t wait to see how it all unfolds.

Nona the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir

Nona the Ninth Cover

I am also hoping to read the next book in the epic Locked Tomb series by intriguing author Tamsyn Muir, Nona the Ninth.  Part of an awesome series about damaged necromancers in a desolate far future, Nona the Ninth follows on from the impressive Gideon the Ninth (one of my favourite debuts of 2019) and Harrow the Ninth (one of my favourite books and audiobooks of 2020).  I have no doubt this is going to be one of the more unique and captivating books of 2022 and I can’t wait to read it.
