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 still in the middle of Thrawn: Treason by Timothy Zahn, just over halfway through in fact. I haven’t gotten any great amounts of reading time in the last week, but I have managed to chip away at it a little anyway. I’m finding that I’m enjoying it a lot as a comfort read, but at the moment I’m still really not sure what the core conflict of this book is. Their little skirmish with the Grysks is interesting, but they feel more like an obstacle than something the characters are sincerely struggle against. I suppose questions of treason will have to come into things, I’m just not entirely certain what that will be yet. Knowing Thrawn’s ultimate fate, I wonder what sort of balancing act that might entail or if he will betray his own people for the Empire. At any rate, I am enjoying this book for the writing and its characters, at least, but I hope it doesn’t disappoint.
I’m slowly making my way through the Scott Pilgrim: Color Edition Digital Omnibus by Bryan Lee O’Malley, which continues to be a fun nostalgic romp. Although I knew how much longer the comics are than the movie, revisiting it is really highlighting just how truncated the film is. It works, but it really isn’t the ideal way to experience this story. I’m loving the slower moments and how they contrast with the over-the-top action and cartoony elements. I’m especially wondering this time around just how literal we’re meant to take the more absurd elements of the story too, though I’m sure I’m thinking about it too much. One shouldn’t always search for perfect sense, it can spoil the fun.
I still plan to read We Were Liars by E. Lockhart next, but think that is still a way’s off since I’m only a little over halfway through Treason. In the meantime, I really ought to pick another graphic novel or something to stay on top of my reading challenge; I’m two books behind schedule already. I know that’s not the end of the world, but it feels like an inauspicious start to the year.
Until next week, thank you for reading! Feel free to share your own post down below.
