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’m happy to report that I’m between books. More on that in a moment. I’ve once again left Hope is the Thing with Feathers: The Complete Poems of Emily Dickinson to languish for another week. I guess that reading surge was a lot shorter than I was hoping. I’ll pick it back up again soon, maybe. There’s always hope.
It almost didn’t happen, but last night I managed to power through and finish Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. I did want it finished before the end of July, but that become a physical impossibility over the weekend. Oh well, I’m at least happy I have it done for today’s post. I’m in a weird spot with this book, because it really does feel like I’ve read a slightly abridged version of the story I beheld in the miniseries. Since it came after, of course, the miniseries is really more of an expanded version of events, but I’m working backwards here. So, as I said last week, it didn’t have much in the way of surprises in store for me. My only real gripe, though, is that I like Aziraphale and Crowley the best and they are featured noticeably less in the book. Otherwise, as expected, I thought the book was fantastic.
What is this, three weeks in a row I’ve talked about reading Hellboy: The God Machine by Thomas Sniegoski next? Well, I still intend to do it. There’s not much more I can say about that. Honestly, I’m mostly wracking my brain about what comics I want to read next. I suppose the easiest option, it has just now occurred to me as I write this, is to read the next volume of The Immortal Hulk by Al Ewing et al, which I bought a couple of months ago. So there, the next book I finish will likely be The Keeper of the Door. It has been too long since I continued that series.
Until next week, thank you for reading! Feel free to share your own post down below.
