WWW Wednesday is a book meme run by Taking on a World of Words.
The Three Ws are:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
Due to some current travel and misuse of reading time over the weekend I’m still about 100 pages shy of finishing Guards! Guards! by Terry Pratchett. Regardless, it is quickly becoming one of my favourite of the Discworld novels I’ve read thus far. I had already expected to really like it, but it has taken some unexpected turns that have made it even better. A figure I thought was only going to be a plot device became a key player in the plot and I love where it has gone thus far. I should have it finished soon, with a review up within the next week.
I started reading the final volume of the Guardians of the Galaxy run I’ve been going through, Through the Looking Glass, but was disappointed to find that once again half of the issues in the book tied into an event. I’ll be damned if I read chapter 2 and 7 of a story without filling in the holes, so I put the book down to pick up the event comic and read it at a later date. It’s a shame Marvel never let this series stand on its own much at all.
It’s been a slow week, unfortunately, so nothing finished for this week. I’m hopeful this will be a lull in an otherwise busy month.
Since I haven’t dug into any horror just yet, here’s the third book I have planned for reading this month: It Devours! by Joseph Fink & Jeffrey Cranor, which will be released on October 17. I’m a big fan of Welcome to Night Vale and loved the first novel, so I’m really excited to see what strange and intriguing places this book goes to.

I’ve never heard of any of these books, but I like the sounds of the Guardians of the Galaxy. Hope you are able to get them all one day!
I have read “The Color of Magic” and “Equal Rites” from the Discworld series and loved them. I need to repick up the series and continue with it. I have several of these on my physical shelf so I really should.
Mort is especially good. It’s the fourth Discworld novel, and the first one about Death.
I know that there are multiple story threads in the series, so I take it they don’t necessarily have to be read in order right? I want to read the second book because it did seem like a rather direct sequel to the first. I think I have a copy of Mort!
Yes the second book is essentially part 2 of The Colour of Magic, but there are subseries that stand well on their own, as well as standalone books.
Heck, the first book I read was Men at Arms, the 15th book in the series and sequel to Guards! Guards!, and I found it perfectly accessible.
