WWW Wednesday – May 6th, 2020

Welcome to WWW Wednesday which is currently being hosted by Sam @ Taking On A World of Words. It’s really just a place to do little update on what all you’ve been reading lately. Anyone is welcome to join, just leave a link to your post in the comments and be sure to give the appropriate credit to Sam!

The Three W’s are:

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

Currently Reading

  • Tuesday Mooney Talks to Ghosts by Kate Racculia – audiobook
  • The Devil’s Thief (The Last Magician, #2) by Lisa Maxwell – physical book
  • Artemis by Andy Weir – physical book

I’m a little over halfway through Artemis. And while I’m enjoying it, I hate the extensive science lessons that Weir thinks we need to have every other paragraph. There’s a reason I didn’t read The Martian, dude. Please save your need to sound really intelligent for someone else.

I’m also a 1/4 of the way through The Devil’s Thief and loving it so far. I like how the different POVs are giving us insight into what’s happening from completely different perspectives. There’s a lot going on but I’m enjoying every second of it.

I hope to finish Tuesday Mooney Talks to Ghosts by tomorrow. It’s a fun story and has turned into something a little different than what I was expecting. I think this is actually about grief and that was something I had no idea was even going to be a topic when I first picked it up. I like that but I much prefer the game and mystery aspect more… Sorry!

What did you recently finish reading?

  • Descendant of the Crane by Joan He – physical book
  • Things in Jars by Jess Kidd – audiobook

Things in Jars was such a good book. It was entertaining and interesting and I never knew what was going to happen next. I highly recommend the audiobook version for it as well. The narrator did such an awesome job with all of the voices and accents. You won’t regret it!

Descendant of the Crane was a little bit of a letdown. It was an interesting story and I loved the actual plot, but I think the world-building could have used a bit more exploration. It didn’t feel complete to me and there wasn’t enough information given to understand it. The ending left a strong possibility for a sequel and so I’m hoping that those issues could be remedied with the second book.

What do you think you’ll read next?

  • The Last Equation of Isaac Severy by Nova Jacobs – physical book
  • The Oracle Year by Charles Soule – physical book
  • The City of Brass (The Daevabad Trilogy, #1) by S.A. Chakraborty – audiobook, reread

What are you currently reading? What books did you finish this week? What are you planning on reading next? Have you read any of the books on my list? If so, what did you think of them? Leave a link to your WWW Wednesday post in the comments below!

  1. I enjoyed Artemis but there was something about it that just didn’t hit all the right notes.

    The Martian is one of my all time favourites (the narrator for the audio book version was beyond perfect). So mayne I just expected far more than Artemis ever could have given.

      1. I did feel that Jazz felt a bit more male than not. I get the fact that a female lead/the thought of having diverse leads in your work is the sort of thing authors feel readers want. And I know some readers out there bizarrely only read books with female leads or, are written by females. But, myself, and a good portion of people I know just want a good story with characters we can enjoy. So I just feel authors need to write to their strengths rather than writing for what they think people want.
