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 read another chapter of Thermopylae by Paul Cartledge since last week, but that’s it. Not really enough for me to comment any further on the book. I was much too fixated on reading what I recently finished.
Over the last week I spent most of my time reading through Solutions and Other Problems by Allie Brosh, the follow up to Hyperbole and a Half. This is one of the funniest reading experiences I’ve had in a long time. Her art style is so abstractly evocative that so many relatable sensations come across through her illustrations alone. There are certain chapters and moments from the book that can still get me laughing just by thinking about them. It touches upon some rather heavy topics too, sometimes managing to find an appreciably humorous side to things like existential dread. There could occasionally be a bit of tonal whiplash between chapters, but I highly recommend checking it out. I should have a fully review up sometime soon.
I feel I should go off of my to-read list a bit for October, since I didn’t actually add many horror novels to it, despite the fact that I love reading spooky books around Halloween. I guess I thought I’d have a better handle on this list.
In any case, I’ve decided that once I finish with Thermopylae I’m going to read The Night Will Find Us by Matthew Lyons, an ARC I recently received. I’m not familiar with any of the author’s work, so I’m excited to check out some new horror. I’m also going to check out Alien: Sea of Sorrows by James A. Moore, to give one of these new Alien novels a shot after I didn’t quite like the last one.
Until next week, thank you for reading! Feel free to share your own post down below.

I did not realize there were Alien novels! That’s cool. I’m looking forward to changing my TBR up for the upcoming season as well – it’s going to be a fun month!
Yeah, usually they’re branded Aliens, though I didn’t love the first one, Alien: Out of the Shadows, all that much. I’m hoping that I’ll enjoy this next one more, though, since based on premise it shouldn’t have the same problems.
Aahhh I’m really looking forward to Allie Brosh’s new book. She manages to be hilarious and memorable and also really put her finger on some things. Glad to hear it’s good!
Here’s my WWW post.
I hope you enjoy reading it too 🙂
Enjoy your reading!
