WWW Wednesday – 29 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?

Dead of Night by Simon Scarrow (Trade Paperback)

Dead of Night Cover

I just started reading the awesome historical murder mystery Dead of Night by Simon Scarrow, which looks set to be a pretty exceptional read.  The sequel to Scarrow’s previous novel, BlackoutDead of Night 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 I can’t wait to see how this book turns out.

Ogres by Adrian Tchaikovsky (Audiobook)

Ogres Cover

I had planned to listen to the Adrian Tchaikovsky audiobook City of Last Chances next but instead I decided to listen to another Tchaikovsky audiobook, Ogres.  An intriguing standalone read that envisions a world where ogres rule over the humans, this is a great audiobook that I am having a ton of fun with.  I have made a fair bit of progress with Ogres so far and I am hoping to knock it off in the next day or so.

I put in a ton of effort over the weekend and finished off the audiobook version of Son of the Poison Rose by Jonathan Maberry.  The sequel to Maberry’s epic 2022 fantasy novel, Kagen the DamnedSon of the Poison Rose was an exceptional read that had me hooked from start to finish.  One of the best audiobooks of 2023 so far, I had such an incredible time with Son of the Poison Rose and I am hoping to get a review up for it soon.

Kill Team by Gav Thorpe (Paperback)

Kill Team Cover

After really enjoying the first Last Chancers novel by Gav Thorpe, 13th Legion, I decided to quickly break up my reading schedule and check out the second novel, Kill Team.  Following the doomed members of the 13th Penal Legion as they embark on another suicide mission, Kill Team was a great read and I am hoping to get a Throwback Thursday review for it up soon.

I had been meaning to read the cool James Patterson book, 3 Days to Live for a while and I finally got a chance earlier this week. Featuring three short stories by Patterson and three over great authors, this was an excellent and easy read that I had a ton of fun with.

I’m in a real historical fiction mood this week so the next book I am hoping to check out is Fatal Legacy by Lindsey Davis.  The latest book in one of my favourite historical crime fiction series, Fatal Legacy will see determined investigator Flavia Albia attempt to resolve a tricky legal situation in ancient Rome.  Bound to be funny, clever and addictive, I cannot wait to get into this book.
