WWW Wednesday – May 22, 2019


WWW Wednesday is a weekly book meme run by Sam over at Taking on a World of Words. Check out her post and others over on her blog! Feel free to leave a link to your own down below as well.

The Three Ws are:

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

Currently Reading

Mutiny at Mon CalaLast night I decided to start reading the next volume of Marvel’s ongoing Star Wars series that I need to get to, which is Volume 8: Mutiny at Mon Cala by Kieron Gillen, Salvador Larroca, and David Marquez. I’ve been an especially big fan of Gillen’s work in the new Star Wars comic books and this book continues that trend. Previous volumes in this series have been all right, but always left more to be desired. In this volume the crew of the Millennium Falcon are trying to rescue the Mon Calamari king from prison, hoping this will help in getting them to pledge some of their fleet to the Rebel Alliance. I’ve reached a critical point where their plan has been compromised and I’m excited to see where things go.

Recently Finished

On Earth as it is in HellOver the weekend I finished reading On Earth As It Is In Hell by Brian Hodge, the third Hellboy novel. I should hopefully have a review done before the end of the week. I’m having such oddly mixed feelings about this book. On the one hand I think it had the most intriguing plot of all the Hellboy novels I’ve read so far, but on the other I was pushing myself to finish it finally. I did not feel a natural drive to power to see what happened next. I liked the story, yet I was largely motivated by my desire to move past the book entirely. I’m a little vexed by this, but hopefully I can get these feelings fully sussed out for the review. All the same, there were really good things about this book I hope the novels that follow it have taken cues from.

Reading Next

The Hidden Life of TreesI’ve decided the next book I will read shall be The Hidden Life of Trees by Peter Wohlleben. This is pretty close to my previous science read, but I loved the last book so much that I’ve decided to just take the plunge with this book. It’s a topic I know almost nothing about, yet I’m curiously fascinated by it all the same. I do hope that it doesn’t disappoint.

Feel free to leave a link to your post below.

Until next week, thank you for reading!

  1. This is completely super random, but Wohlleben is an awesome name, even though I don’t know how to pronounce it. The way I pronounce it in my head sounds very Australian. And I pronounce it with an Australian accent. Is that weird? xD

    I never thought that a book about trees would be all that interesting, but it really does sound like a good read! Quite eye-opening, maybe. I look forward to seeing what you think once you’ve finished it. Hopefully, it lives up to your expectations.

    • No, I don’t think that’s weird lol Though I believe the author is German. I’ve since started reading it and it has been quite eye-opening so far.

      • I think the way it looks like it’s pronounced evokes the word wallaby, so I don’t think it’s that much of a stretch lol

  2. I’m intrigued by The Hidden Life Of Trees! I hope you will enjoy your books this week and happy reading.

  3. Enjoy your reading!
    I’m currently reading The three musketeers and Midsummer’s mayhem!


    • Yeah, I have to push myself to read nonfiction most of the time. I’m finding scientific nonfiction is the easiest for me to get into so far.
