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?
Since last week I’ve had an unexpected amount of free time again, and I used some of that time to get a start on Thrawn: Treason by Timothy Zahn, the third book in his trilogy of Star Wars novels focused on the titular character. I’m only about 86 pages in, so I haven’t exactly powered through it or anything. I haven’t had a lot of motivation to do so, as it seems is often the case this time of year. I am enjoying the book just fine so far, at any rate, though it’s not clear where the story is heading as of yet. I really like Thrawn as an anti-villain, which is unique to these books compared to his depiction in the Rebels TV show, so with hints to his continued use in the franchise from some other media I have to wonder whether he will be given a more villainous twist if he appears again.
Over the weekend I read through The Legends of Luke Skywalker: The Manga by various. This was meant to be the last book I read in 2021, but I didn’t end up having enough time. In any case, I actually liked this book a lot more than I was expecting. I’m not sure how canon it is meant to be, especially with my least favourite story playfully retconning some circumstance behind the events at Jabba’s palace in Return of the Jedi, but most of them were nevertheless a lot of fun and allowed themselves to be more experimental than I was expecting. I especially liked that a few of them seemed to conspicuously take place after the events of the original trilogy, really capturing the idea that these are the further adventures of Luke.
I still don’t quite know what I’m going to be reading next in a broad sense. I’ve almost got a list together for my challenges in 2022, but I haven’t fully cemented it yet. There should be a post up detailing everything soon, though. In the meantime, perhaps I will finally start reading the Scott Pilgrim: Color Edition Digital Omnibus by Bryan Lee O’Malley, which I’ve been meaning to start for months. That doesn’t necessarily mean I will start it soon, but I can try to try, can’t I?
Until next week, thank you for reading! Feel free to share your own post down below.
