WWW Wednesday – August 24, 2022

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

Dark Lord of DerkholmI’ve made more decent progress in Dark Lord of Derkholm by Diana Wynne Jones again this week, though not nearly as much as I probably should have. I had more incidental free time than I had been planning this weekend, but I just didn’t end up dedicating a lot of it to reading. With editing work requiring so much reading on its own, it really is harder to motivate myself to read for fun. I’m still enjoying the book a lot, and it looks like a proper shift in the story is coming. Derk had to play Dark Lord for his first batch of pilgrims, who actually seemed to be outsiders bent on exposing the whole scheme from the other side, and his son Blade has gone off to lead his own Pilgrim Party, so I’m hoping things will become all the more substantive from here on out.


Recently Finished

Yet again, I have failed. I’m not in the best state of mind as of late, however, so I hope you can forgive my more barren posts this last little bit.


Reading Next

PaperGirlsVol1I still want to start reading A Carnival of Snackery by David Sedaris soon, though I think I will have to make a more concentrated effort to read it at home, as it is a bit to big to be lugging to my typical reading haunt. I have a harder time getting myself to read at home, though, so I will have to figure things out. I still want to start Paper Girls by Brian K. Vaughn et al. too, I’ve just continued to neglect it. Maybe I will turn that around this week; I certainly guilt myself about not starting it enough. If I’m going to keep thinking about it, I might as well actually start it.

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