WWW Wednesday – March 4, 2020


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?

Currently Reading

Nothing at this moment. I’ve slacked a little bit on starting anything. I’ve got a fair amount on the docket, though, so this will be changing soon.

Recently Finished

Men at ArmsOver the weekend I finished reading Men at Arms by Terry Pratchett, my first reread in a long time. It’s actually been so long since I read this book that I forgot a lot of key plot points, which was great. In many ways it felt like reading it for the first time all over again. I may be a little biased, since this is the book that introduced me to the Discworld, but even after reading 14 other books in the series this is definitely one of the best. It does such a great job of encapsulating Ankh-Morpork as a city, making it feel like one of the characters itself. It also mashes up genres really well, with a fantasy-noir type of plot that plays with classic fantasy tropes of kingship and their right to rule.

Reading Next

MaddAddamI’ve talked about what I want to read next in the last couple of weeks already, but I suppose it bears running down again since I should actually be getting to all of them within the next week.

For my next novel I’ve got MaddAddam by Margaret Atwood, the final book in the MaddAddam trilogy. I also plan to read Star Wars: The Scourging of Shu-Torun by Kieron Gillen et al, to catch up on on the volumes I currently have. I also mean to read Bloodborne: The Veil, Torn Asunder by Aleš Kot et al, the 4th graphic novel based on the video game of the same name. Since two of these are comics, it’s likely I’ll have both finished by next week.

Until next week, thank you for reading! Feel free to share your own post down below.

  1. I have heard a lot of about Terry Pratchett but have never read any of his books. I should check him out. I have a few of Margaret Attwood’s too. I think Oryx and Crake was the last one I read by her. I’ll have to check the first one in this MaddAddam series out too.

    • As a matter of fact, Oryx and Crake is the first novel in the MaddAddam trilogy! If you liked it enough to continue, you’ll want to read The Year of the Flood next 🙂

  2. I really need to read more Terry Pratchett. I haven’t read MaddAddam yet but I plan to because everything that woman writes is amazing.

  3. I love the idea of rediscovering your first Discworld book again! Maybe I’ll plan on doing something like that next year, so then it’ll have been a couple years since I read Mort. :3 It’s interesting how your perspective can change with reading a bit more of someone’s work and then going back again after a little time.

    • It really is interesting to revisit things when given the opportunity. I actually read the book for a university class, too, so I wish I could experience those lectures over again too.
