WWW Wednesday – 10 May 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 Book That Wouldn’t Burn by Mark Lawrence (ebook)

The Book That Wouldn't Burn Cover

I have started reading the new Mark Lawrence novel, The Book That Wouldn’t Burn, which is proving to be a particularly epic read.  Set around a massive and elaborate library, this book follows two very different protagonists as they attempt to understand its mysteries.  I am about 100 pages into this brilliant book at the moment and I am already quite intrigued and addicted to the impressive narrative that Lawrence is setting up.  Based on what I have read so far, The Book That Wouldn’t Burn is something truly special that will probably end up being one of the best fantasy books of 2023. I am hoping to finish The Book That Wouldn’t Burn off in the next few days, although I’m going to have to buckle down a bit to achieve that.



The Lake House by Sarah Beth Durst (Audiobook)

The Lake House Cover Better

I have also just started listening to the interesting young adult thriller, The Lake House by Sarah Beth Durst.  Set around a very remote summer camp, The Lake House follows three teenage girls as they find themselves trapped in an unexpected and sinister situation. I am already quite familiar with Durst as an author thanks to her amazing fantasy novels, Race the Sands and The Bone Maker, and I was very interested in seeing her take on the classic teen slasher narrative.  I haven’t made too much progress with this audiobook yet, but it is so far proving to very compelling.  I look forward to unwinding the whole elaborate plot and I will probably finish off The Lake House before next week’s update.


What did you recently finish reading?

The Isles of the Gods by Amie Kaufman (Trade Paperback)

The Isles of the Gods Cover

I managed to get through the exciting young adult fantasy novel, The Isles of the Gods by Australian author Amie Kaufman in the last week and it proved to be an outstanding and inventive novel. I have already written a review for it here, and thanks to its great characters and captivating narrative, it comes highly recommended.



The Last Kingdom by Steve Berry (Audiobook)

The Last Kingdom (Steve Berry) Cover

I also finshed the latest captivating thriller from veteran author Steve Berry, The Last Kingdom this week, which was extremely awesome. Berry came up with another exceptional and elaborate conspiracy for this new novel which was so much fun to get through. Another outstanding novel to check out, I will hopefully get a review up for it soon.


What do you think you’ll read next?

Battle Song by Ian Ross

Battle Song Cover

If I get a chance in the next week my plan is to start reading the awesome sounding historical adventure, Battle Song by Ian Ross.  I have been in love with the plot of this cool novel since I first saw it and I really want to see what epic historical adventure Ross has come up with.



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.
