WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme created by A Daily Rhythm and
currently hosted by Taking on the World of Words.
I’ve never participated in this feature before, but it looks like fun so I thought I would give it a go. It’s super easy too. WWW Wednesday is just about answering 3 questions: What are you currently reading? What did you recently finish reading? What do you think you’ll read next?
I’m currently reading Seven Blades in Black by Sam Sykes, and I’m absolutely loving it.
Sal the Cacophany was once a highly respected mage, but now she’s a vagrant traveling through The Scar, a ravaged land between two warring empires. But, she was done with all that bullshit. She went to The Scar with a list of names, a magical gun, and a sword named Jeff ready to find her vengeance.
But, as our story starts Sal has been captured by the Revolution, and awaiting her execution. So now all she’s got left is her story. And she’s going to make sure it’s a damn good one.
“My story,” she said. “What I tell you, you write down. Down to the fucking letter, you write it. You tell it. You remember it. You let it be known what Sal the Cacophony did before she went cackling to hell and left this dark earth to all you dumb motherfuckers.”
I recently finished Queen’s Shadow by EK Johnston, and I enjoyed it so much more than I was expecting to.
Queen’s Shadow is the first canon novel about Padmé Amidala Naberrie. It takes place between The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones following Padme after her second term as Queen and during her first term as a Senator for Naboo.
In many ways this is such a quiet novel. It’s introspective and focuses on a less flashy kind of strength; it’s full of kick-ass female characters and friendships. I’ll be doing a full review of it soon.
Also, after that Epilogue, I’m gonna need a Sabé focused novel like yesterday.
“They’ll stall you,” Organa said. “I know it’s a horrifying situation, but you can’t fight every evil in the galaxy.”
“Evil? ” Padmé said. “I’ve fought evil and it was easy: I shot it. It’s apathy I can’t stand.”
The next book I’m hoping to read is One Word Kill by Mark Lawrence.
I absolutely loved the Book of the Ancestor trilogy, so I knew I wanted to read more of Mark Lawrence’s work. And this novella series seemed like an excellent place to start.
One Word Kill is a fantasy/sci-fi story about Nick Hayes, a 15 year old boy genius who has just been diagnosed with cancer. Nick and his DnD friends meet a new girl named Mia and things take a turn for the weird. Soon a mysterious stranger arrives, who has some kind of supernatural ability, and tell’s him that Mia is in danger, and she needs Nick’s help.
From Goodreads: He [Nick] finds himself in a race against time to unravel an impossible mystery and save the girl. And all that stands in his way is a probably terminal disease, a knife-wielding maniac and the laws of physics.
Now, if you read this blog post and thought to yourself: “But, Kristen. None of these books were on your October TBR?” You’d be right. Because what is the point of a TBR if you don’t throw it out the window the moment you see something you’d rather read instead? *insert the facepalm emoji here*
What are your WWW books? Anything I need to add to my TBR?
Happy Reading ♥
