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.
I only just started reading the latest epic piece of historical fiction from bestselling author Ken Follett a couple of hours ago but I am already 100 pages into it and I only stopped so I could put this post up. The Evening and the Morning is an impressive and well-written novel that serves as a prequel to Follett’s iconic The Pillars of the Earth. I am deeply enjoying this excellent novel and I don’t think it is going to take me too long to get through all 800+ pages.
I finally got around to listening to Assault by Fire, the action packed solo debut novel from H. Ripley Rawlings IV, who previously cowrote last year’s awesome action thriller, Red Metal. This is an exciting and fast-paced military thriller that is set around a Russian invasion of the United States. I have made substantial progress on this book and should finish it off in the next day or so.
Battle Ground by Jim Butcher (Audiobook)
Battle Ground was a heck of a read and easily one of the best books of 2020. Review to follow soon.
Hidden in Plain Sight by Jeffrey Archer (Trade Paperback)
