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!
The Three Ws are:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
Progress has been a little slow on Little Heaven by Nick Cutter, unfortunately. For reasons I don’t completely understand myself, I’ve been a little put out as far as reading in general goes. My attention between books was also a little split too, with this having suffered less attention. I’m still enjoying the book, at any rate, though unfortunately I feel a bit iffy on the prologue chapters the further along I go. Much is still left vague, which is good, but I feel that certain developments that happen as the group of hired guns is making their way to Little Heaven would have been more impactful if I did not have prior knowledge of what they were dealing with. Things have been effectively creepy in the little town all the same, so I’m not complaining too much.
I finished reading Hellboy: Odder Jobs this morning, and it was all I could muster to finish that. I’m not usually so exhausted after a night shift, but lately I’ve just had trouble getting these out in the morning. Nevertheless, I’ve enjoyed this collection well enough, though none of it has wowed me the way Odd Jobs did. A stand-out aspect of this collection for me is that a few of them have focused on other characters as well. Abe Sapien gets a couple of stories about him, and there is another about Roger the homunculus. I love Hellboy, but it’s good to have the spotlight shone on these other characters too. I should have a review up within the next week.
I still very much intend to start reading Dreams of Terror and Death by H.P. Lovecraft, but there is something else I’ve neglected from my list for Frighteningly Good Reads: The Immortal Hulk by Al Ewing et al. I’ve got three volumes to get through with only eight days to do it, though I must say I’m much less worried about whether I’ll get three graphic novels done than I am the books on my plate. I must get to them soon, at any rate, so here’s me letting you know it’s coming. If I do things right, I’ll likely have a lot finishing next week.
Until next week, thank you for reading! Feel free to share your own post down below.

Sorry you’re a little off your reading at the moment hopefully things will turn around for you soon, or you’ll find a book that really grips you
Thanks. I’m not necessarily disinterested in what I’m reading. I think no matter what I’m reading right now I’d be coming at it the same way. I’m sure I will come back around. Just been in a weird sort of funk, I suppose.
Enjoy your reading!
I’m about to pick up The dragon republic and I’m listening to romanov 🙂
I hear you on the reading thing. I feel like I’m too tired to read lately. xD I feel like it probably happens to all of us from time to time.
Shame about the prologue. I sometimes think that with books, too, where the prologue was maybe a nice hook, but not necessary in the overall story and takes some of the surprises out of it. Oh, I’m looking forward to what you think of The Immortal Hulk! Hope this week gets a bit easier for you.
