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?
I’ve gotten a decent start on Star Wars: Thrawn by Timothy Zahn since last week. I’m a little over 100 pages in at the moment. It really has been a nice change of pace after I was left a little frustrated by the last book I was reading. That being said, the pacing of the story has been surprisingly slow, though not in a bad way. More taking its time. Though I suspect it is all building toward something particular, for now it has been all about Thrawn’s induction into the Imperial Navy and the obstacles he deals with as an outsider. I particularly like how his perspective is written, as he is always reading the people he’s interacting with, so we get some insight into the expressions he observes in others and what he interprets about them.
As an additional cleanse of my reading palette I decided to properly read through Emotions Explained with Buff Dudes by Andrew Tsyaston. It is a collection of the author’s online comic strips Owlturd Comix, which you’ve likely come across yourself online at some point. Many, if not most, of the strips collected in this book I had definitely read online before already, but it’s nice to own a physical copy and show support for artists you enjoy when you can. This was mostly why’d I’d picked it up, admittedly, but I did have fun reading through properly. I’ve had it for a while, but for some reason put off reading it.
With only about a month left in the year I keep mulling over what I think I can get through with the limited amount of time I have. I’ve gone over the Christmas-themed graphic novels I’d like to get to, as well as Stardust by Neil Gaiman, but I want to fit in something more if I can. Perhaps I should see if I can squeeze in The Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood. I’ve been meaning to continue the MaddAddam trilogy for years now, yet each time I make a list I never get around to it. I can’t guarantee I will get to it, but perhaps I will try in December.
Until next week, thank you for reading! Feel free to share your own post down below.

Enjoy your reading!
I’m currently reading Capturing the devil and listening to This mortal coil!
So far, the only Atwood book I’ve read is The Handmaid’s Tale. I haven’t heard a whole lot about the MaddAddam books. Hope you enjoy the rest of the trilogy!
Thanks! Weirdly, I’ve read a few of her books but for some reason haven’t ever gotten around to The Handmaid’s Tale, even though that’s the one pretty much everybody familiar with her has read.
Emotions Explained with Buff Dudes looks so cute and funny. Hope you enjoy everything you pick up this week!
Thank you! And yeah, it was a nice, light read. Don’t know why I put it off for so long. Happy reading.
I have so many of those! Especially with manga and graphic novels. Everytime I pick something up I think ‘why has this been sitting on my shelf for so long?’ 😂
I can definitely relate with the graphic novels. I’ve got so many of those as well. They take a little longer to read than a collection of webcomics, but I have no idea why I let them languish so long lol
Happy reading, whether you go for a Christmas-themed graphic novel and/or if you manage to squeeze in The Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood! Here’s my WWW post for this week: https://thebookwormchronicles.wordpress.com/2019/11/27/www-wednesday-27th-november-2019/ 🙂
I hope you find time to get to The Year of Flood! So good!
Happy reading 🙂
Thanks, I hope so too. I’ve really let this trilogy lie for too long, though at least from what I understand The Year of the Flood is more of a parallel/prequel story rather than a direct sequel, so maybe it stands more on its own.
You’re right about it being a parallel/prequel story. I remember being slightly disappointed when I realized that, but it’s still great!
This may come as a surprise (or maybe not, since I live under a rock), but I’ve never heard of Andrew Tsyaston or seen his comics, so I had to look them up, and oh my gosh! How did I miss these?
They are a lot of fun, eh? I think I first came across them on Facebook, then I started seeing them everywhere lol
That’s usually how it works. Facebook is watching you. xD
