This was a post I saw circulating that I thought looked really fun to do. It’s a weekly meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words, where you answer the three W’s:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What are you planning on reading next?
I’m currently reading She Who Became the Sun by Shelley Parker-Chan, a book described as The Song of Achilles meets Mulan. So far I’m almost 200 pages into it and thoroughly enjoying it!
I’m also (very slowly) reading The Grace of Kings by Ken Liu. I’m less than 15% through the Kindle version so can’t say too much about the plot as I’ve gone into it not knowing anything about it, which is how I like to approach most of my books. I’ve enjoyed what I’ve read so far, though!
Recently Finished Reading
The last book I finished was Jade War by Fonda Lee and… I’m not okay. The Green Bone Saga is officially one of my all time favourite series. Both Jade City and Jade War were full of twists and turns, jaw dropping revelations, and gasp-out-loud moments. I’m going to wait until I write my full review for both books in the series to gush about them in depth, but Jade War is *chef’s kiss* and if you haven’t read it then what are you waiting for?
I’m trying to stick to my October TBR so I think the next book I’ll pick up will be The Space Between Worlds by Micaiah Johnson, a sci-fi book that I believe involves time travel (or something along those lines). There’s a lot of books not on my TBR that I’m really in the mood for so I might also pick up another one to read alongside it as I do like to have two books on the go at once to switch between. I think that book will be Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia, a book full of horror and gore making it a perfect book for spooky season!
