WWW Wednesday – 4th November 2015

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words. It’s a simple meme where you just have to answer three questions:
– What are you currently reading?
– What did you recently finish reading?
– What do you think you’ll read next?

I think it’s a great way to share my recent reads as my reviews are always way behind what I’m actually reading.

So here’s my answers!

What am I currently reading?tokyo heist elenasquareeyes
Tokyo Heist by Diana Renn
I love anything to do with heists. I love true stories about heists (as long as no one got hurt) and I love books and films about heists so this book is right up my street. It’s all about a missing painting and I’m pretty much bang on half way through and I do like it even though the main characters dad is the absolute worst – he is really not a good parent and he bugs me whenever he appears.

What did I recently finish reading?Fairest elenasquareeyes
Fairest by Marissa Meyer
Though it’s not a proper part of The Lunar Chronicles (Re)Readalong I wanted to read Fairest before Winter came out this month. As Fairest is a prequel it was interesting to see what Lavana was like when she was younger and what made her so evil or if she was always like that. It was a quick read and now I’m really looking forward to see what happens in Winter.

What do I think I’ll read next?the house of hidden mothers elenasquareeyes
It depends on when I finish my current read. Either I’ll read The House of Hidden Mothers by Meera Syal, a book that seems like it’s a family drama but also has some humour in it, or if it’s out I’ll go straight to Winter by Marissa Meyer because I can’t wait to see how the series ends.

Night Rise by Anthony HorowitzNight Rise ElenaSquareEyes
As it’s the ReReadathon I’m rereading The Power of Five series. Night Rise is the third book of five and even though I only started it yesterday and it is 400 pages long I’m making good headway with it. It’s a bit odd being with new characters as in the previous two books the focus has been on Matt so not following him was a bit strange to start with but that being said it’s great to learn about Scott and Jamie who are two of the Five.

What did I recently finish reading?Evil Star ElenaSquareEyes
Evil Star by Anthony Horowitz
The second book in The Power of Five series is my favourite so far and it’s actually the one that I could remember the most about even though it’s been almost 10 years since I first read it. The last third in the Nazca Desert is action-packed and what happens with the Nazca lines was pretty scary and one of the things that always stuck out about this series.

What do I think I’ll read next?
Necropolis by Anthony HorowitzNecropolis ElenaSquareEyes
And continuing the ReReadathon with the fourth book in the series! I really want to power through these now, even though they are now getting longer and more complicated with more characters, because I’ve never read Oblivion (the fifth and final book in the series) and really want to see how it all ends.

The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger
This is a short book and a pretty accessible classic but I’m finding it slow going because I’m really not a fan of the protagonist. He’s cocky, a liar and just a bit of an insensitive prat. Hopefully I’ll finish it today though – only have about 60 pages left.

Cinder by Marisa Meyer
I really enjoyed this fairy-tale retelling. It has a cool world, great characters and while I did guess what some of the “big reveals” were going to be half way through the book I still found it a fun and fast read.

Scarlet by Marisa Meyer
I think I’m going to continue with The Lunar Chronicles and therefore #TLCReadAlong with Scarlet. Red Riding Hood is one of my favourite fairy-tales so I’m intrigued at how it’s going to be adapted for this world.

The Hounding of David Oluwale by Kester Aspden
This is a non-fiction book about the true story of David Oluwale, a homeless black man in Leeds who was found dead in the river. It then looks at how and why he ended up there and how the police were involved. It’s a short book but because it’s quite a tough read it’s taking me a while to read it, I do find it interesting though.

Slashback by Rob Thurman
I really enjoyed this book – I always feel like returning to the Cal Leandros series is like returning home – a home full of violence and monsters. It’s a world I know well and it’s comforting and easy being around familiar characters.

Secret Avengers Vol. 3: God Level by Ales Kot and Michael Walsh
I’ve been really looking forward to seeing how this run of Secret Avengers ends. It’s definitely been one of my favourite comics I’ve read so far – the characters are great, it’s funny, the art is quirky and it’s just a lot of fun. I have a lot of love for this series.

Crash and Burn by Michael Hassan
I’m not sure what I think about this book at the moment. Crash is telling the story leading up to when Burn takes their school hostage and how Crash stopped him and saved the school. There’s certainly a gallows humour in it which is weird for a book about a school shooting and I am intrigued about both Crash and Burn but at the same time the characters aren’t that likable. I’m half way through it now so I kinda feel like if I give up on it now I’ll have wasted so much time on it – I guess I’ll keep powering on.

X-Men: Days of Future Past by Chris Claremont and John Byrne
While the actual Days of Future Past storyline was only across two action packed and fast paced issues, the rest of the collection had the lead up to that event so you knew more about the characters and the stakes that they’d be facing. I’m glad I’ve now read this iconic comic.

Techbitch by Lucy Sykes and Jo Piazza
I saw this book in WHSmith and had to pick it up. Mainly because the similarity between the front cover and the Fifty Shades of Grey movie poster made me smile and I hope that’s been done deliberately. It’s all about how social media and the internet is changing the magazine industry and as someone who works in PR I’ve seen those changes and how some embrace them and some resists them so I’m interested to see what the main character in this does to survive the changes.

Scarlet by Stephen R. Lawhead.
This is the second book in the King Raven trilogy and its focus is on Will Scarlet. I like how it’s told, as it begins with Will in jail and telling his story to a priest as he waits to be hanged after being caught by the Sheriff. I like how you slowly are seeing the events that lead up to his capture.

Runaways Volume 2 by Brian K. Vaughan, Adrian Alphona and Takeshi Miyazawa.
I loved this book. The next chapter in the Runaways lives was just as interesting and heartfelt as the previous volume. There were new characters and old faces and there was a lot of twists and turns too. And what an ending!

What do I think I’ll read next?FullSizeRender (85)
I’m not sure. If I feel compelled to finish the trilogy immediately then it’ll be Tuck by Stephen R. Lawhead. Otherwise I might take a break from long books and catch up on some comics like Ms. Marvel Vol. 3 by G. Willow Wilson, Elmo Bondoc and Takeshi Miyazawa and ODY-C Vol. 1 by Matt Fraction and Christian Ward.
