Mods – What we’re reading! Pt 1

Ever wanted to know what the mods have read, are reading, want to read? Well your dreams are about to come true with the first part of this semi-regular feature on what we are reading! 


What I read last: Courtiers: Secret History of the Georgian Court by Lucy Worsley – this was an entertaining read, the way she writes ensures it’s not dry recitation and in parts I even sniggered at some of the quotes of people of the time. I only really knew about the Georgian period from Georgette Heyer’s regency romances so this was good to get some background on the period.

Currently reading: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Only 49 pages in but it’s interesting – full thoughts will have to wait until I’ve finished it!

What I’ll read next:… well I’m not sure yet! Depends on how I feel, but it might be either Ack-Ack Macaque, The Strange Affair of Spring Heeled Jack or The Owl Killers.


What I read last: I just finished The Three Body Problem and this really brought out my problem with keeping names straight. I have a hard enough time with names that are used consistently in my culture but the Chinese names are very tough for me.

Currently reading: I am currently reading White Night, because who doesn’t love some Harry Dresden and Bob the skull!

What I’ll read next: I actually have no idea what I’m going to read next, maybe The Black Prism in preparation for the fourth (and hopefully final) book. I had no clue the book was a quartet so was expecting a conclusion at the end of the third book, that was a tough ending for me.


What I read last: I just finished reading the Sci-Fi BotM –  The Three-Body Problem. It seems to really be dividing everyone but I absolutely loved it. It was so unpredictable and I thought it was very clever!

Currently readingTheft of Swords by Michael J. Sullivan. The group has given this book, and this author, a lot of love so i thought it was time to pick it up and have a read. Really enjoying it so far!

What I’ll read next: Potentially Red RisingWool, or Prince of Fools – will see how I feel after I finish Theft of Swords! But all these are way up on my radar.


What did you last read? What are you reading now? What are you planning to read next? 

Look out for pt2 of this feature next week!

  1. Nice idea for a feature. To answer the question at the end: last book I read was The Long Tomorrow ny Leigh Brackett, currently reading Owl and the Japanese Circus by Kristi Charish, next will be probably be Linda Nagata

        Thanks Paul, it ended up being Ack Ack Macaque in the end as I kept being about to start it and then I would get distracted by another book! But it was a good call, totally weird but really cool so far.


  2. I recently read Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson. (Was really good!)
    Now I’m trying The Three-Body Problem but I don’t know how I feel about it yet.
    Next, if I don’t complete the current book, then probably try another sci-fi novel as that is what I’m in the mood for. Probably either Morning Star or Old Man’s War.
