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?
Pardon the brief hiatus from last week, I was out of town until late into the week visiting family for my birthday and Canadian Thanksgiving. I read another year’s section in A Carnival of Snackery by David Sedaris in that time, though I’ve since put the book aside to focus a little more on horror. Not that I’ve actually started anything else, but you live and hope.
I’ve been continuing to make my way through Pet Sematary by Stephen King, though I’ve not been able to make as much progress as I’d have liked over the last two weeks; I never truly am able to get reading done when I visit home, no matter how much I hope I may. Last night I reached the end of the first section of three in the novel, which takes up the majority of pages. I’m sure people with even a passing awareness of the book know what happens in it, but I was surprised to find that King outright tells you in the book too before anything actually goes down. I have to wonder if it was him giving fair warning to his readers, as the tragedy may be too much for some, giving them an opportunity to back out before they are too upset by it.
Another Halloween read I have lined up that I’m actually confident I will be able to read this month is Black Paradox by Junji Ito, a newly published story of his in English by VIZ media. I just picked up my preorder of it, which I wasn’t sure would arrive before Halloween or not, so I’m happy I’ll be able to read it for the season. I’m not sure I’ve ever heard anything about this story before, so I suspect it is another newer work rather than a translation of something older, but we’ll see. At any rate, it’s rather shorter than some other collections, so it won’t take me too long to get through. I’ve experienced diminishing returns with his work, so I’m only cautiously optimistic about this book.
Until next time, thank you for reading! Feel free to share your own post down below.
