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

Dark Lord of DerkholmI’m still tootling along in Dark Lord of Derkholm by Diana Wynne Jones; there’s a lot left, but I made some decent yet modest progress over the weekend all the same. The story has outdone itself in terms of surprising me with its darker elements, though I won’t get into exactly what happens. I thought it was handled with fairly deft tact though, I just hope it isn’t completely swept under the rug going forward. The endeavour to march these dark soldiers across the land still hasn’t quite wrapped up yet, so I’ve yet to get the further momentum I was hoping for in the story. I’m only a little over halfway through, however, so I’m still invested. It seems the plot to end the tours has progressed a little too, though I hope it doesn’t all come down to a breach of contract on the part of the true villain.


Recently Finished

Once again, I have failed to read Paper Girls or anything else.


Reading Next

A Carnival of SnackeryLike I’ve been saying repeatedly, I’m going to start reading Paper Girls by Brian K. Vaughn et al. soon, but I’ve been saying that for a couple of weeks now, so who can say how soon that will really be. At the moment, I’ve decided that the next book I want to start reading is Carnival of Snackery by David Sedaris. It’s not on my yearly to-read list, but I’m hoping it can make for another decent supplemental read. Those usually don’t work out great for me, but I feel like I need to try and have more than one book on the go at a time anyway. I’ve been waiting a while for the sequel to Theft by Finding too, so it’s time I finally started it.

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