WWW Wednesday – 12 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? 

The Last Orphan by Gregg Hurwitz

The Last Orphan Cover 2

I just started reading the latest Orphan X novel by Gregg Hurwitz, The Last Orphan, which is proving to be a lot of fun. I have deeply enjoyed this exceptional series over the last few years and so far, The Last Orphan is another outstanding read. This new book sees Evan Smoak, the titular Orphan X, forced to choose between his freedom and his principles when the President captures him to undertake a controversial assassination mission. The first 50 pages of The Last Orphan have been really exciting and I cannot wait to see what happens next.



City of Last Chances by Adrian Tchaikovsky

I am still listening to the audiobook version of the epic fantasy novel, City of Last Chances by Adrian Tchaikovsky, although I have made a ton of progress in the last week. Set in an occupied city, City of Last Chances follows a huge cast of unique characters as they get into all manner of trouble in some weird and funny situations.  I have really gotten into this amazing novel, especially as each new chapter presents the reader with a new, captivating, character-driven story. All these stories are coming together really well to form an elaborate and epic overarching plot, and I have had an incredible time with the entire book.  I really cannot wait to see where Tchaikovsky takes this awesome story next and this is already shaping up to be one of the top books of 2023 for me.  I will hopefully finish this audiobook off in the next few days, and I am really loving everything about City of Last Chances.


What did you recently finish reading?

Fatal Legacy by Lindsey Davis

I only managed to finish off one book this week, Fatal Legacy by Lindsey Davis.  Luckily this proved to be a particularly awesome book and one I had a great time reading.  Davis produced another exceptional historical crime fiction story in Fatal Legacy, and I loved the elaborate and funny mystery contained within.


What do you think you’ll read next?

Star Wars: Battle Scars by Sam Maggs

Star Wars - Battle Scars Cover

I think I might try and dive into this cool Star Wars books in the next week, especially as we are so close to the new Star Wars Jedi game coming out. I am very curious to see how Sam Maggs captures the feel of both the game and the extended Star Wars universe and this sounds like it will be a fun and interesting read.



The Tyrant Skies by David Annadale

The Tyrant Skies Cover

Another awesome tie-in book that has really caught my attention is the early copy of The Tyrant Skies I received on Netgalley.  Featuring a cool story about Doctor Doom taking on the Red Skull, The Tyrant Skies sounds like something I will have an outstanding time with and I am hoping to quickly knock it out in the next week or so.



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.
