WWW Wednesday – November 25, 2020

www_wednesdays

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

Thrawn AlliancesI’m about 69% of the way through Thrawn: Alliances by Timothy Zahn, which is nice, though I wanted to have it finished by now, so not quite nice enough. I’ve slacked on reading during my days off, as per usual. I’m still enjoying the book quite a bit, though of the two eras it jumps between I’m definitely preferring one over the other, which isn’t to the novel’s credit. I just find the frictional relationship between Vader and Thrawn much more interesting. There’s an appreciable amount of intrigue to the story overall, though, as in both time periods I’m not certain what the characters will ultimately discover about their respective investigations, especially since one is implied to have led to a region of a planet becoming inhospitable. I look forward to finishing it, which I ought to do soon if I’m going to stay on schedule.


Recently Finished

Nothing this week!


Reading Next

Immortal Hulk Hulk is HulkI’ve already committed to starting Maskerade by Terry Pratchett next, so there’s nothing new there, but I suppose I ought to actually read some books from the graphic novel pile. I recently purchased the newest volume of The Immortal Hulk by Al Ewing et al, so I’ll probably read that soon to stay on top of the series. I’m still behind on my Goodreads challenge too and slacking on comics has definitely been the reason for that.

I’ve got three volumes of Berserk by Kentaro Miura just sitting on my shelf, and manga reads especially quickly, so I’ll probably get to those soon too. I really have so much to choose from, I don’t know why I let them languish.

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

  1. You’re making me want to get to more of my media tie-in novels on my TBR! They’ve been on my shelves for such a long time too and every now and then I just have the need to get to them. Enjoy your week!

    • I’ve got a bunch of Hellboy novels alongside all the Star Wars that I need to read through too. Media tie-ins can certainly stack up quickly. I hope you enjoy finally digging into those that have been waiting on your shelf 🙂

    • I’d love to give some recommendations if I can. Are you wondering about good places to start with superheroes, or are there other genres you’re more interested in?

      • I’m realizing I read a lot of horror on a regular basis lol Hmm. Well, All-Star Superman by Grant Morrison is quite a good Superman book. I’ve not read much Superman myself, but really loved that. Rick Remender’s run on Venom was also a favourite of mine. I keep meaning to start Paper Girls by Brian K. Vaughn as well, but I hear great things and have several volumes already. Brody’s Ghost by Mark Crilley was really good too, which has dark elements but isn’t really scary, more of a mystery/thriller. Age of Reptiles by Ricardo Delgado is also excellent if you enjoy dinosaurs and 100% visual storytelling. To list some others worth checking out: The Unwritten by Mike Carey, Fables by Bill Willingham, and The Sandman by Neil Gaiman (which touches on horror, but is much more than that). I hope some of these are helpful, I feel like there’s a good chance you’ve heard of a lot of these already.

      • Thank you for the recommendations! I love Superman so I will probably start there. Also Venom!! definitively checking that one, I have been eyeing The Sandman in audible, the preview I heard sounded amazing!!! I will make sure to check these recommendations, sometimes we all need something different.

      • You’re very welcome 🙂 I’ve been meaning to check out the audio dramas for The Sandman too, though I still highly recommend starting with the original books themselves. They’re just so good.
