WWW Wednesday – 9/18

Trying out something new today! WWW Wednesday is hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words, and I’ve seen a lot of fellow bloggers doing it, so I figured I would take a stab at it as well. There are three W questions to answer, so here they are along with my answers!

What are you currently reading?

I’m actually doing two books right now: listening to the audiobook for Patron Saints of Nothing, by Randy Ribay (I love it so much so far!!), and reading my eARC for The Water Dancer by Ta-Nehisi Coates (which I can already tell will be a powerful read once I get into the real meat of the story).

What did you recently finish reading?

Just two days ago I finished “Shadows for Silence in the Forests of Hell,” a Cosmere novella by Brandon Sanderson. It was exactly what I would expect from Brando Sando: creative, a little dark, full of badass characters, and with stellar worldbuilding. I really hope he writes a full novel in this particular world at some point!

In terms of full books, The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow was a beautiful and magical read. Would recommend; check out my review here.

What do you think you’ll read next?

The next two books I’m looking forward to reading are Crier’s War by Nina Varela and The World That We Knew by Alice Hoffman. Just yesterday, I read a glowing review of the latter that has me even more excited about it. And the former just sounds right up my alley.

So what about you? What are you reading now? Read any of these? What did you think of them? Let me know in the comments. And if you have your own WWW, feel free to share that link as well!

All for now,

Kathryn (“K-Specks”)

      Thank you! I actually ended up starting The World That We Knew last night (wasn’t in the mood for The Water Dancer, not sure why) and so far, it is excellent!

      But seriously Patron Saints of Nothing has captured my heart. It also made me acutely aware of how few Filipino characters there are in popular books. Like, I can’t think of a single one off the top of my head.
