WWW Wednesday – 21 December 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?

Hunting Time by Jeffery Deaver (Trade Paperback)

Hunting Time Cover

I just started reading the interesting thriller novel, Hunting Time by Jeffery Deaver.  Bringing back his established protagonist Colter Shaw, Hunting Time features an elaborate fugitive narrative as a desperate woman attempts to outrun Shaw, her abusive cop husband, and several hitman.  I have only made a little progress on Hunting Time so far, but I am really enjoying it, especially as it has a compelling story behind it.  I am hoping to finish it off in the next few days and I can’t wait to see how everything comes together.

The Voyage of the Forgotten by Nick Martell (Audiobook)

The Voyage of the Forgotten Cover

I finally got a chance to start listening to one of my most anticipated books of 2022, with The Voyage of the Forgotten by Nick Martell.  The third and final book in Martell’s The Legacy of the Mercenary Kings trilogy, The Voyage of the Forgotten continues the adventures of reluctant hero Michael Kingman, who finds himself in the middle of a secret war between hidden immortals.  I only just started this audiobook a few minutes ago, but I am having a great time with it, especially as there are some outstanding details up front.  I already know that I am going to love this book, especially after I have had such an incredible time with this series and both of the preceding books, The Kingdom of Liars (one of my favourite booksaudiobooks and debuts of 2020) and The Two-Faced Queen (one of my favourite books and audiobooks of 2021). I have very little doubt that The Voyage of the Forgotten is going to be one of the top books of 2022 and I cannot wait to explore all its mysteries, revelations, and inevitable tragedies in the next week.

Star Wars: The High Republic: Convergence by Zoraida Cordova (Audiobook)

Star Wars - Convergence Cover

The second phase of The High Republic looks set to be one of its strongest, especially if we have more outstanding books like Convergence by Zoraida Cordova.  An epic and powerful read, this was one of the best Star Wars novels and audiobooks of 2022, and I am extremely glad I listened to it.

The Perfect Assassin by James Patterson and Brian Sitts

The Perfect Assassin Cover

I absolutely powered through the new James Patterson novel, The Perfect Assassin, this week.  Co-written by Brian Sitts, The Perfect Assassin had an excellent and fast-paced story that takes the reader on a wild ride.  Compelling, exciting, and featuring a great connection to some old-school pulp novels, this was a lot of fun, and I am hoping to get a review up of it soon.

What do you think you’ll read next?

Khaos by Jeremy Robinson

Khaos Cover

I’m not entirely certain what physical book I’ll read after finishing off The Hunting Time, but I do know that the next audiobook I will be listening to is Khaos by Jeremy Robinson.  The intriguing follow-up to his awesome books, Tribe, The Dark, and Mind Bullet, Khaos will bring together the protagonists of these three novels and force them to travel to the ancient Greek hell of Tartarus and summon the banished Gods and Titans to war.  I am very excited to listen to this crazy book next and I am sure it will be an ultra-fun and highly compelling novel.

That’s it for this week, check back in next Wednesday to see what progress I’ve made on my reading and what books I’ll be looking at next.

One thought on “WWW Wednesday – 21 December 2022

  1. I’m glad you are trying to finish Nick Martell’s trilogy. I enjoyed “The Kingdom of Liars,” too; but, I haven’t been able to finish the series (I own all 3 books). I’m glad to hear Books 2 & 3 are as good as Book 1!
