WWW Wednesday – 17 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 am still getting through 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 a bit over halfway through this brilliant book at the moment although I was hoping to have made a bit more progress by now.  Still, this is proving to be a pretty epic read and The Book That Wouldn’t Burn is proving to be 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 week and I cannot wait to see how the entire novel turns out.



Warhammer 40,000: Shadowsun: The Patient Hunter by Phil Kelly (Audiobook)

Warhammer 40,000 - Shadowsun Cover

I was eager to dive into some of the more recent Warhammer 40,000 novels so I decided to start listening to the intriguing Shadowsun: The Patient Hunter by Phil Kelly.  Focusing on the intriguing T’au faction, Shadowsun is a pretty cool read that sees a legendary T’au commander face off against the forces of Nurgle. I have only just started this audiobook but it looks set to be an action packed outing which I am always eager for.


What did you recently finish reading?

The Lake House by Sarah Beth Durst (Audiobook)

The Lake House Cover Better

I managed to finish off the exceptional young adult thriller, The Lake House by Sarah Beth Durst in the last week.  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.  This was an extremely good novel and I loved how Durst was able to weave together such a captivating and fun story.


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.
