WWW Wednesday – 22 March 2023

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?

Judgement Day by Mali Waugh (Trade Paperback)

Judgement Day Cover

I’ve been a little neglectful this year when it comes to reading debut novels, so I decided to check out the intriguing legal thriller from new Australian author Mali Waugh, Judgement Day.  Following a detective as she investigates the murder of a prominent family court judge, Judgement Day looks set to be quite the compelling crime fiction read, and I have heard good things about it from some fellow reviewers.  I only just started Judgement Day today but so far it is proving to be a fantastic and interesting novel.  I will hopefully finish it off over the weekend and I am looking forward to seeing how it turns out.

Son of the Poison Rose by Jonathan Maberry (Audiobook)

Son of the Poison Rose Cover

I have been making some major progress with the audiobook version of the epic dark fantasy novel Son of the Poison Rose by Jonathan Maberry.  The sequel to Maberry’s epic and exceptional 2022 novel, Kagen the DamnedSon of the Poison Rose continues to follow Maberry’s doomed protagonist as he attempts to navigate a dark and deadly fantasy realm while seeking revenge on the man who took everything from him.  I have gotten about halfway through Son of the Poison Rose in the last week and I am still going strong.  The story has been pretty exceptional so far and I am really liking how Maberry is slowly developing his brutal fantasy setting while also throwing his protagonist into some desperate and insane situations.  I am hoping to knock Son of the Poison Rose off this weekend, especially as I am going to have quite a lot of audiobook listening time and I am very excited to find out how Maberry ends the second book in this outstanding series.

What did you recently finish reading?

How to Sell a Haunted House by Grady Hendrix (Trade Paperback)

How to Sell a Haunted House Cover

I finally finished reading How to Sell a Haunted House this week and it proved to be a very interesting horror read.  I am currently working on a review for it and I will hopefully get that up soon.

Going Zero by Anthony McCarten (ebook)

Going Zero Cover

I was in the mood for something different and exciting this week so I quickly powered through an early copy of the upcoming book, Going Zero.  An intriguing and fun standalone novel that saw a group of 10 people attempt to avoid an intense government surveillance program, Going Zero proved to be exceedingly addictive and I ended up finishing it off in a single day.  I had a great time reading this book and I will get a review for it up closer to its official release date.

What do you think you’ll read next?

Dead of Night by Simon Scarrow

Dead of Night Cover

I am hoping to dive into the awesome historical murder mystery Dead of Night by Simon Scarrow next, which should be a pretty exceptional read.  The sequel to Scarrow’s previous novel, Blackout, Dead of Night looks set to be an amazing book that follows an honest detective in Berlin during World War II who attempts to solve a murder against the wishes of his Nazi masters. Scarrow is already one of my absolute favourite historical fiction authors and I had a fantastic time reading Blackout.  As such, I have no doubt this will be an exceptional read and will probably be one of the top historical reads of the year.

City of Last Chances by Adrian Tchaikovsky

City of Last Chances Cover

If I manage to get through Son of the Poison Rose in the next week my plan is to start listening to another massive fantasy audiobook with City of Last Chances by Adrian Tchaikovsky.  Tchaikovsky is a very highly regarded fantasy and science fiction author who has created some elaborate and powerful stories over the years.  I really loved his Warhammer 40,000 debut last year, Day of Ascension, and I am very curious to see what happens in his new book.  The plot synopsis promises revolution, war and intrigue, and I cannot to find out what masterful tale Tchaikovsky has woven together this time.
