WWW Wednesday – 12 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?

Fairy Tale by Stephen King (Trade Paperback)

Fairy Tale Cover

I just started reading the new Stephen King novel, Fairy Tale, today, which is so far proving to be quite an impressive read.  An intense coming of age story that will see its teenage protagonist and his dog venture into a dangerous fairy realm, this book is pretty awesome so far and I am quite intrigued to see how this entire novel unfolds.

In the Shadow of Lightning by Brian McClellan (Audiobook)

In the Shadow of Lightning Cover

I had several awesome audiobooks to start up this week, but in the end I went with In the Shadow of Lightning by Brian McClellan, mainly because of how much I enjoyed his previous book, Promise of Blood.  I have made a fair bit of progress on this audiobook already and it is proving to be just as epic as I thought it would be.  Set in a new fantasy realm where magic is contained in glass, In the Shadow of Lightning has a great blend of intrigue, politics, action and character development, and I am already very hooked.  I can’t wait to see how this book continues and at the rate I’m going with it, I’ll probably finish it off by this time next week.

What did you recently finish reading?

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

Star Wars - The Princess and the Scoundrel Cover

An excellent Star Wars novel that did a wonderful job capturing the romance between Han Solo and Princess Leia.  I deeply enjoyed this cool book and it ended up being quite an intriguing read.

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

Storm of Iron Cover

This has to have been one of the better Warhammer 40,000 novels I have read recently, especially as it had a brilliant and dark story to it.  Depicting a massive siege of formidable fortress, this was a very exciting book, and I loved the cool directions that McNeill took the story. I am hoping to get a review up for this soon in a Throwback Thursday article, but this is a must-read for all Warhammer fans.

What do you think you’ll read next?

Seventeen by John Brownlow

Seventeen Cover

My plan, after I get through the massive brick that is Fairy Tale, is to dive into some of the intriguing thrillers I have sitting in my to-read pile.  The first one of these that I need to check out is the compelling debut, Seventeen by John Brownlow.  Set to feature a bunch of awesome assassin characters duking it out, Seventeen sounds pretty incredible and I look forward to seeing what happens in it.
