WWW Wednesdays: What are you reading?

Two posts in one day?  You lucky things.

WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. It’s open for anyone to join in and is a great way to share what you’ve been reading! All you have to do is answer three questions and share a link to your blog in the comments section of Sam’s blog.

The three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?

What did you recently finish reading?

What do you think you’ll read next?

I found this meme on Rather Too Fond of Books.  Thanks for sharing!

What are you currently reading?

I’ve bitten off a little more than I can chew and am reading three things (soon to be four, as I have a train journey later and forgot to bring my book!)

A Closed and Common Orbit by Becky Chambers

Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

The House of Mountfathom by Nigel McDowell

I absolutely loved The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet, so I knew I had to get the sequel.  It’s great so far, but I haven’t had much of a chance to read it yet. This weekend will probably be spent tucking into this book.

I couldn’t resist reading Crooked Kingdom right after I finished Six of Crows.  I’m not usually one to read series back to back, but I had to know how it ended!  I’m nearly done, I should be finished by Friday.

The House of Mountfathom is an advance copy from the publisher.  The gorgeous cover drew me in and the description sounds amazing.  I’m only about 15% in and don’t have a good idea of what I think.  It flies by so I should be finished soon!

 

What did you recently finish reading?

Luna: Wolf Moon by Ian McDonald

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

Luna: Wolf Moon was an advance copy I received from the publisher.  It is the second book in a series and the first, New Moon, caught my eye in the bookshop.  When I got approved for this, I went ahead and bought New Moon and I’m so glad I did!  Both books are just fantastic and feel different from a lot of the sci-fi I have read in the past.  The pacing is much slower and while there is a lot of action, the book focuses on the political underhandedness of these family corporations.  I highly recommend them!

Six of Crows is a book that most people here probably already know about.  I had seen it here and there and finally broke down a bought it.  I’m fairly new to the YA genre and hadn’t found anything that completely blew my mind until I read this.  I’ve got Shadow and Bone on standby for when I finish Crooked Kingdom!

 

What do you think you’ll read next?

Red Sister by Mark Lawrence

Northern Lights by Philip Pullman

The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon

I really like Mark Lawrence as an author and as a person.  He’s incredibly interactive with his fans and is a great and diligent writer.  Red Sister is the first book in a new trilogy and I’m so thrilled I got my hands on an advance copy!

I managed to get through a very bookish childhood without reading these books. We even had a full set of them on the shelves!  In anticipation of his new book releasing in October, I’ve decided to read all three of the His Dark Materials series.  Plus I live in Oxford, so I feel like that’s just even more reason to read them.

I have been seeing The Bone Season everywhere for years, but never bothered to pick it up until now.  I know literally nothing about it except for the fact that it’s the first in a series and the newest one just came out.  We’ll see how it goes!

 

What are you guys currently reading or looking forward to reading?  Have you finished something recently that you loved?  Let me know if you’ve done this meme, I’d love to check it out!
