WWW Wednesday | 07/10/2020

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words that highlights three questions:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

What did you recently finish reading?

I finished Dread Nation by Justina Ireland last night and I really, really enjoyed it. I loved the alternate history aspect and the story progressed really well. The action was strong and this is coming from someone who doesn't normally care about zombies (never seen The Walking Dead!) but I liked how they were incorporated into the historical side. My favourite part though was Jane and Katherines friendship, they're a terrific badass team. There's some good asexual and bisexual rep in her as well.

What are you currently reading?

I've just started Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater and this is been a quick read so far although I am only around 30 pages in. This is a partial reread for me because I think I read a third of this book like ten years ago but I never finished it. And I now own the whole series for some reason so when paranormal creature prompts came up in the readathons I'm doing I knew I had to add this and finally get to this series properly. This is a paranormal romance between a human girl and a werewolf boy and although I'm not a massive fan of paranormal romances, I do really like Maggie Stiefvaters writing so hopefully me and this book get along.

I also began reading Mooncakes by Suzanne Walker and Wendy Xu which is a graphic novel about a witch and a werewolf and their relationship with a few supernatural goings on thrown in. So i'm actually reading two wolfy books at the minute! Being a graphic novel, I'm already 25% in and it's already so cute and super autumnal. I love the art style and I think i'm really going to like this. 

What do you think you'll read next?

I'm picking up Joyland by Stephen King next for the Spooktober Readathon and I'm looking forward to this because I've been enjoying Stephen King's writing and this one is set in a carnival which I absolutely love but actually, beyond it's setting I don't know too much about it!   
Set in a small-town North Carolina amusement park in 1973, Joyland tells the story of the summer in which college student Devin Jones comes to work as a carny and confronts the legacy of a vicious murder, the fate of a dying child, and the ways both will change his life forever.

Have you read any of these? What were your thoughts? What are you currently reading and hoping to pick up next? Leave a comment or link your own WWW Wednesdays below for me to check out!
