#WWW Wednesday – 20 February 2019

It’s time for WWW Wednesday! This blog hop is hosted by Sam over at A World Of Words. Link up with us by commenting on Sam’s post for this week, and just answer the three questions.

First of all, a bit of a plug!

So do you remember in my last WWW post, I mentioned I was contemplating starting a Booktube channel to talk about Australian authors? Well, I didn’t think about it for too long and I started one! I’ve already put up two videos, so check it out if you feel inclined.

I now return you to your regularly scheduled WWW post.

What have you recently finished reading?

Only one thing finished this week: the ARC of Second Star by J. M. Sullivan, which actually ended up frustrating me a lot. It had a strong start but didn’t live upt to it.  My review goes up on Friday.

My review of In Another Life by C. C. Hunter went up on Monday and you can read it here.

What are you currently reading?

I started The Dying Flame by R. L. Sanderson, who is a friend of mine! And I am a terrible friend for taking 18 months to read this. But hey, at least this way, the sequel is already out for me to get straight onto. I have read her YA Contemporaries but this is her first fantasy. It is not disappointing because she is a tremendous writer and you should all read her books.

I’m also reading Out There: A Scientific Guide to Alien Life, Antimatter, and Human Space Travel (For the Cosmically Curious) by  Michael Wall, who is a senior editor at space.com. I’m trying to read more non-fiction and this stuff is interesting, though I don’t find myself engaged… I think because I don’t speed through non-fiction  the way I do through fiction,I get frustrated, but I’m trying to push past that because learning is good.

Okay so Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor. Guh. This book. It’s just… there’s just so much… detail. And scope. Like the world just got a million times bigger about halfway through this. A lot of the mythology that’s set up Strange the Dreamer is actually playing a much bigger part here.

Can those of you who said you need to get onto reading this do so soon because I have a feeling I’m going to get to the end and want to talk to people about this. (I’m only sort of joking). I’m also no longer sure this is just a duology because I’m around 70% of the way through and I feel like there’s no way she can satisfyingly tie everything up in 30%. I may be wrong, though.

What do you think you will read next?

As it was last week, this is a very good  question. I’ve very much been mood reading lately. I’ll probably try to find another Australian title.

What are you reading this week? 🙂

    I am one of those who said they really needed to start Muse of Nightmares but I’m afraid it’s unlikely to happen any time soon as I just don’t have the concentration for it. I really struggle with books that are heavy on descriptions and detail at the best of times.

      That’s all right. You definitely have to be in the mood for it. And I think that’s partly my problem because I’m not really in the mood, but also I’m committed enough to finish it now. It’s a weird one because it’s so long and detailed but only takes place over about three days. And the pacing is weird. And other there are other things I will save my for review rather than ranting at you personally about. XD
