WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words.
The three W’s are:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
It’s been a hot minute, so I thought it would be a good time to share a WWW Wednesday!
I’m currently enjoying What the Wind Knows by Amy Harmon, a time travel novel set in Ireland a few years after the Easter Rising. It’s a bit of a slow burn, but the characters and the writing are lovely. I’ve had excellent luck with books set in Ireland this year and I have a feeling this will be no exception. The historical background is fascinating, the romance swoon-worthy, and the time travel elements are refreshingly unique.
Katherine Arden’s The Winter of the Witch was everything I had hoped it would be. A truly fitting end to the phenomenal Winternight trilogy. It was harder to say goodbye to Vasya (and Morozko) than I expected. Definitely think a re-read of the entire trilogy will be in order in the future!
I finally finished the second book in the Veronica Speedwell series: A Perilous Undertaking by Deanna Raybourn. I didn’t love it quite as much as the first, but it was still an entertaining read with characters I’ve grown to love. I’ll probably continue on with the series at some point, although I don’t think I’ll be in a hurry to pick up book three any time soon.
I’m still recovering from the book hangover I received from drinking in the luminous State of Wonder by Ann Patchett. Such a transportive, evocative, thought-provoking, and emotional read. I got utterly lost in her story and could practically hear, smell, feel, and taste the Amazon jungle. This was my second Patchett novel and, like its predecessor Commonwealth, it was a five-star read. I can’t wait to dive into more of her work.
I’m looking forward to participating in this weekend’s 24in48 readathon and am thinking about my tentative TBR list. I haven’t made any final decisions, but I may end up choosing a few of these books that have been calling to me lately:
Have you read any of these books? What have you been reading lately?
