WWW Wednesday – 5 April 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? 

Fatal Legacy by Lindsey Davis

Fatal Legacy Cover

I was in a historical fiction mood this week, so I started reading Fatal Legacy by Lindsey Davis.  The latest book in one of my favourite historical crime fiction series, Fatal Legacy sees determined investigator Flavia Albia attempt to resolve a tricky legal situation in ancient Rome.  I haven’t made too much progress with Fatal Legacy yet but so far I am enjoying Davis’ usual blend of humour, historical detail and crazy characters.



City of Last Chances by Adrian Tchaikovsky

After finishing Ogres this week, I decided to get another fix of acclaimed author Adrian Tchaikovsky when I started listening to the audiobook version of his latest novel, City of Last Chances. Set in an occupied city, City of Last Chances follows several unique characters as they get into all manner of trouble in some weird and funny stories.  I haven’t gotten too far into this audiobook yet, but I am rather enjoying the intriguing mixture of stories, all written in Tchaikovsky’s unique style.  I look forward to seeing where Tchaikovsky takes this awesome book and I have a feeling it is going to be one of the top books of 2023 for me.



What did you recently finish reading?

Dead of Night by Simon Scarrow (Trade Paperback)

Dead of Night Cover

I managed to finish off the outstanding historical murder mystery Dead of Night by Simon Scarrow this week and it proved to be a fantastic and captivating read.  The sequel to Scarrow’s previous novel, BlackoutDead of Night told a powerful story that combined a murder investigation with compelling and dark insights into the Nazi regime.  An amazing novel, I will hopefully get a review up for it soon.



Ogres by Adrian Tchaikovsky (Audiobook)

Ogres Cover

A very entertaining and distinctive novella from a real talent.  Make sure to check out my recent review for Ogres.



Warhammer 40,000: Necropolis by Dan Abnett

Warhammer 40,000 - Necropolis Cover

After having so much fun with the first two Gaunt’s Ghosts novels, First and Only and Ghostmaker, I just had to see what carnage occurred in the third entry, Necropolis.  This powerful and action-packed novel was quite the exceptional read and I had an epic time getting through it.  I’m actually putting up a Throwback Thursday post about it right after this, so make sure to check it out.



The Investigators by Anthony Hill (Trade Paperback)

The Investigators Cover

A fascinating and highly detailed historical novel that follows an iconic voyage around Australia. 


What do you think you’ll read next?

The Last Orphan by Gregg Hurwitz

The Last Orphan Cover 2

I am hoping to finally get around to reading the latest Orphan X novel by Gregg Hurwitz next, The Last Orphan.  I have deeply enjoyed this exceptional series over the last few years and I cannot wait to see what happens in this next, ominously named book.



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.
