WWW Wednesday

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam over at Taking on a World of Words.

The Three Ws Are:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

What are you currently reading?

After saying (and not actually starting) that I was going to tackle my backlog of requests, tours, and old TBRs, I finally started reading some of them. I have three books scheduled for May and currently reading two; one book is a backlogged request and the other for a blog tour coming up towards the end of the month.

Current Reads Book 1: Shards of Earth by Adrian Tchaikovsky

Blurb

The war is over. Its heroes forgotten. Until one chance discovery . . .

Idris has neither aged nor slept since they remade him in the war. And one of humanity’s heroes now scrapes by on a freelance salvage vessel, to avoid the attention of greater powers.

After earth was destroyed, mankind created a fighting elite to save their species, enhanced humans such as Idris. In the silence of space they could communicate, mind-to-mind, with the enemy. Then their alien aggressors, the Architects, simply disappeared—and Idris and his kind became obsolete.

Now, fifty years later, Idris and his crew have discovered something strange abandoned in space. It’s clearly the work of the Architects—but are they returning? And if so, why? Hunted by gangsters, cults and governments, Idris and his crew race across the galaxy hunting for answers. For they now possess something of incalculable value, that many would kill to obtain.

Current Reads Book 2: The Sheriff by David Scott Meyers

Blurb

Two years have gone by in the surrounding area of Fellowship. Huey Morgan continues to feel unappreciated in his role as the deputy for the sheriff’s department of Duck County. Playing second fiddle to Sheriff Absalom Holmes, a well-respected constable who has been getting too comfortable in his job and becoming lazier and lazier, Huey feels the weight of the work falling solely on his shoulders. Late one, hot summer night, Huey is awakened by a phone call, which leads to a gruesome discovery that will shake the foundations of this small town…

What did you recently finish reading?

I’ve was having a bit of a reading dry spell with my last read being “The Lore of Prometheus”, for a blog tour.

Review >HERE<

The Lore of Prometheus by Graham Austin-King

Blurb

John Carver has three rules: Don’t drink in the daytime, don’t gamble when the luck has gone, and don’t talk to the dead people who come to visit.

It has been almost five years since the incident in Kabul. Since the magic stirred within him and the stories began. Fleeing the army, running from the whispers, the guilt, and the fear he was losing his mind, Carver fell into addiction, dragging himself through life one day at a time.

Desperation has pulled him back to Afghanistan, back to the heat, the dust, and the truth he worked so hard to avoid. But there are others, obsessed with power and forbidden magics, who will stop at nothing to learn the truth of his gifts. Abducted and chained, Carver must break more than his own rules if he is to harness this power and survive. 

What do you think you’ll read next?

Up next after Sheriff and Shards is another backlogged request book that I’ve been meaning to start forever ago. I’ve it scheduled out in my calendar now and things that go into my bujo are things that get done!

River Queens: Saucy Boat, stout mates, spotted dog, America by Alexander Watson

Blurb

Two men and a spotted dog restore a vintage Chris-Craft motor yacht and launch across the American Heartland from Texas to Ohio. The restoration, the people they met along the way, and life in an America which few know exists are the story of River Queens: Saucy boat, stout mates, spotted dog, America.
