WWW Wednesday (November 23 2022)

Welcome to WWW Wednesday, which consists of answering three questions:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

That’s it. WWW Wednesday is hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words so credit to her. Now lets have a look at things

WHAT ARE YOU CURRENTLY READING?

The Dragonbone Chair by Tad Williams – I have really, really slowed down on everything – in fact, barely read the last couple of weeks – but I’ve slowed down on this more than anything. It started jaunty and amusing and now it’s just plodding along tediously.

Death’s Master by Tanith Lee – Getting into this a little more, might be the next to one pick up momentum

Queen’s Assassin by James Barclay – Will probably quit this the next I open it up. Yes I know I’ve said that a lot

Tigana by Guy Gavriel Kay – Still utterly fantastic and one I make happy leisurely progress through.

Irenicon by Aidan Harte – Probably a DNF next time I open it up.

Jurgen by James Branch Cabell – Amusing in small doses but beginning to outstay its welcome and there’s a lot of book left.

The Stardust Thief by Chelsea Abdullah – Really struggling to catch my attention. If it wasn’t the big fantasy adventure hit of the year, I’d probably be DNFing.

The Fisherman by John Langan – Enjoyable in small doses

The Fall Is All There Is by CM Caplan – It’s out which means I should finish this ARC! Uhm… problem is I like it, but only in small doses. Which means its not going quick.

Light from Uncommon Stars by Ryka Aoki – Another nibbler

The House of Cats and Gulls by Stephen Deas – Nibbling away. Long paragraphs don’t help someone short on attention.

Gaudy Night by Dorothy Sayers – I needed something different and this is different. Also good.

Indian for Everyone by Hari Ghotra – I’m not very far into this but it’s doing an excellent job of explaining underlying philosophy which makes it A+ in my book

Titus Groan by Mervyn Peake – A friend wants me to read it for a potential podcast join. Stay tuned…

Alamut by Judith Tarr – Wanted something old school, this had good recommendations, so far reasonably interested

Borderlands ed by Terri Windling – Kicking it with the beginning of Urban Fantasy

A Betrayal in Winter by Daniel Abraham – Either I like it and all is good, or I don’t and I can cast spite on someone I know. Win-win. I don’t love the beginning; Abraham’s capacity for getting me intrigued with stuff and then switching to someone else is near unparalleled, and usually it’s something I don’t care for.

Forgotten Lore ed by Rhonda Parrish – A friend is in it, so I am reading it! Liked one, didn’t like one so far.

Salt Acid Fat Heat by Samin Nosrat – Mayri at Bookforager reminded me I should get back on this, so I got back on this. My sort of food book. Teach me how the fundamentals work.

If you look at that list and think I have lost control and sanity, you’re probably not wrong. Even for me, that badly needs pruning, and the DNF plank is going to see some action.

WHAT DID YOU RECENTLY FINISH READING?

The Amazing Maurice and his Educated Rodents by Sir Terry Pratchett – Thanks I hate it

The Shining Company by Rosemary Sutcliff – So beautifully poignant and powerful and evocative

The Outcast of Redwall by Brian Jacques – Not the best Redwall

The Pegge and the Pendrel by Christopher Bean – A beta read for a friend that I ended up really enjoying, despite noy liking Victoriana at all

WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’LL READ NEXT?

I don’t have much urge to start anything new right now, but when I do (say twelve hours from now)

Raybearer by Jordan Ifueko – Still on the list

My New Book Haul – I honestly can’t remember what’s in it a few hours after buying it and I’m so excited to have a little haul it’ll get its own post, but yay! Actual hard copies!

Novellas and Comics – I need somethign light adn fast moving with that

There we go. WWW Wednesday.
