WWW Wednesday: January 8, 2020

By: Christoper Bartlett

Happy New Year, and welcome to 2020 here at Functionally Fictional and the second WWW Wednesday of the new year. WWW Wednesday is a weekly reading update hosted 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?

Most other columns would welcome fireworks and all that, but we are a website about reading along with writing so that is kind of a fire hazard.

What’s not is jumping into The Hollows Series since last I heard Kim Harrison was thinking of doing another read-along of the whole series before the next book comes out in 2020. She started back in October, but there is still time to join in. I am in the middle of an anthology with a short story that is part of her series at the moment. As well as planning on catching up with the rest of the series. Along with her Science Fiction series the Peri Reed Chronicles.

And while Veronica Roth was not the most liked author at the end of her first and most noteworthy trilogy so far, Divergent, I am going to be catching up on her works as well.

At the same time, I am still working on keeping up with my magazine reading as I study the future of cities from the April 2019 issue of National Geographic Magazine. Along with finishing up a couple of other books for review. One of which was requested, it just took longer than expected since I am looking at it through duel lenses from both the literary and sociological perspectives.

I’ll probably also end up watching two seasons of The Handmaid’s Tale back to back since I want to finish reading Margaret Atwood’s original version of it before diving back into the televised world of it.

I’ll also be diving into pre-World War 2 Paris with Hemingway in A Moveable Feast, which I received for Bookmas. Bookmas is a take on Iceland’s tradition of giving books to each other on Christmas Eve for me and the writers over at Coffee House Writers.

All in all, 2020 looks quite interesting reading-wise already. What are some of the books you got over the holidays or coming out this year that you are most looking forward to reading?
