WWW Wednesday is a book meme run by 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?

Currently Reading

I started reading What If?: Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions by Randall Munroe this past week, though I only read one entry. I’m excited to get into it, though I intend to have it as a supplemental book to what I’m mainly focusing on, so my progress on it will be slow. I love the mix of humour with the stick figure illustrations and the deeply thought out scientific information, so I may get through it faster than I think.

Recently Finished

Over the weekend I finally powered through the last of Hearts in Atlantis by Stephen King, so that book is finally behind me, so I can move on to The Dark Tower without any loose ends behind me. The final short story in the book ties things together nicely, where otherwise I’d found everything after “Low Men in Yellow Coats” to be a little bit weaker, though admittedly I’m biased toward the Dark Tower connections.

I also read Hellboy: The Crooked Man & Others. It was a good collections of stories, though at this point in the series I’m much more interested in where Hellboy’s story is going, especially after the events of The Wild Hunt, rather than these miniseries or one-shots that take place in the character’s past. I really like the design of the Crooked Man, he was quite memorably grotesque, and that story itself was really good despite Hellboy being more of a passive participant to the whole thing.

Reading Next

I’m putting most of my energy for the time being into getting through The Dark Tower (Dark Tower VII) by Stephen King. I know I’ve talked about this book every entry I’ve done, but I’m finally gonna get to it in the next day or so. Other than that, it’s continuing Hellboy, of which I only have two numbered volumes left to read.
