WWW Wednesday – July 12, 2017
Currently hosted at Taking on a World of Words, I’m taking my first crack at the WWW Wednesday meme! It’s an easy meme, but seems like a lot of fun. So let me cut to the chase before you make a move for that back button.
The Three Ws are:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
Hex by Thomas Olde Heuvelt
This book is knocking my socks off. It’s unique, creepy and keeps me turning pages. I don’t want to get too far into it, because I want to do a full review post when I’m done (which will be very soon at the rate I’m going!
Whoever is born here, is doomed to stay ’til death. Whoever settles, never leaves.
Welcome to Black Spring, the seemingly picturesque Hudson Valley town haunted by the Black Rock Witch, a 17th century woman whose eyes and mouth are sewn shut. Muzzled, she walks the streets and enters your homes at will. She stands next to your bed for nights on end. Everybody knows that her eyes may never be opened.
The elders of Black Spring have virtually quarantined the town by using high-tech surveillance to prevent their curse from spreading. Frustrated with being kept in lockdown, the town’s teenagers decide to break their strict regulations and go viral with the haunting, but in so doing send the town spiraling into the dark, medieval practices of the past.
A Memory of Light by Robert Jordan & Brandon Sanderson
For those of you that count audiobooks, I’m listening to the final book of the Wheel of Time series, A Memory of light. All of the WoT are super long. The complete audio book was something like 48 hours, and I don’t get a ton of time on a daily basis to listen, so I’ve been working on this one for some time, and it’ll still be a while before I can manage to finish it, but that’s okay. This is the last book in a long series. And though I am looking forward to hearing the ending, I’m dreading the end. In the meantime, I’ll revel in each moment while it lasts.
Soultaker by Robert J. Duperre
Really cool concept and universe about Eternal Knights that wield both sword and firearms, both with a little twist of magic.
While this book didn’t do everything I was hoping it to do, I was entertained and the ending was good.

We Are the Ants by Shaun David Hutchinson
I’m not 100% sure this is going to be the next thing I’m going to read, but it’s very likely. It’s one of the books that isn’t only on my TBR, it’s on my actual bookshelf.
There’s also a good chance that I’m going to re-read Red Rising so I can finally get going with the rest of the series.
