I’m participating today in WWW Wednesday!
The Three Ws are:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next, and/or what are you eagerly awaiting?
Currently reading: The Windup Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi.
Its a dark dystopian thriller which I’m enjoying. I’ve wanted to read it for so long after seeing so many great reviews. I have it in paperback so its taking me a while to read as I just read this one on an evening in bed. Its about Emiko the Windup Girl, she’s not human but an engineered being. Programmed initial to satisfy the desires of a businessman, but now abandoned to the streets of Bangkok. I’ve been thrust right into the middle of a bustling future full of shady characters. Still figuring out what is going on but the world-building is pretty amazing.
Recently Finished: Monsters Exist – Edited by Jesse Deadman & Theresa Braun
A fun book full of horror short stories. Really quick reads, loaded with monsters to haunt your nightmares. Mythological and cryptozoological critters. Stories that bring urban legends to life. That play on your fears. These are the monsters that lurk within your imagination, and the ones that live next door, or down the well in the woods. My full review of the book is here: Book Review: Monsters Exist
Reading Next: Doorways in the Sand by Roger Zelazny
This looks like a humorous sci-fi so I can’t wait to dive in. “Follow Fred on his adventures as he enters multiple realities, flipping in and out of alien perspectives, through doorways in the sand.” Looks fun!
