#SciFiMonth: WWW Wednesday

Just to catch up on my reading schedule (ha, what reading schedule!) and let you know what I’ve been reading and plan on reading next, I’m doing WWW Wednesday, a weekly meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words in which we answer three simple questions:

  • What are you currently Reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you’ll read next?

What am I currently reading:

Well, in truth I’m not currently reading RED NOISE by John P. Murphy … yet! But I will be starting it tonight. I have had this one sat on my TBR pile for weeks waiting for #SciFiMonth to start but then, when I got my book mail last week, I skipped it in favour of book two of Michael Mammay’s Planetside series. But now, I get to savour it and enjoy a very different kind of read:

Caught up in a space station turf war between gangs and corrupt law, a lone asteroid miner decides to take them all down.When an asteroid miner comes to Station 35 looking to sell her cargo and get back to the solitude she craves, she gets swept up in a three-way standoff with gangs and crooked cops.”

What have I just finished:

Well, I think anyone that’s been following the blog even for the last few days knows the answer to this one, SPACESIDE by Michael Mammay. This is book 2 in his Planetside series. And boy, was it as much twisted fun as book one was. I’m really enjoying not only the cleverly written plots, but the main character, Col. Carl Butler, is so well written I feel like I served with him, in my time in the military! If you haven’t already done so, may I humbly suggest you check this series out.

What I plan on reading next:

Ah, that’s always the question. I did have THE SOLDIER by Neal Asher lined up to be next in line, but then, given all the feedback I got over on twitter about the author, well, now I’m not sure I even want to read the book. Though it’s true, many said the book was a decent read, it was just the author that was problematic. But still, I hate buying books from authors that are, well, problematic. I don’t feel the need to support them. So I might skip The Soldier and buy one (if not ALL) of the following that I have scheduled to buy later this month:

  • HELLA by David Gerrold
  • THE CHIMERA CODE by Wayne Santos
  • NUCLEATION by Kimberly Unger
  • FEARLESS by Allen Stroud
  • AN UNNATURAL LIFE by Erin K. Wagner

Damn, I think I’ll bring up THE CHIMERA CODE. What do you think? Which would you choose out of all these? Decisions, decisions, decisions!

    I’m trying to get to Red Noise this month too. But the month is slipping away faster than I’d like!

      I know, I had it all planned on which books when, and then? It all went out the window and I’m already behind. Oh, and will let you know how RED NOISE pans out.

    Oh, I’m reading An Unnatural Life for SciFi Month too! Rly liked the premise of A.I. civil rights

      I know, right. It sounds so unusual. And right now, most of the books I’m choosing are because they have an unusual premise.

    Chimera Code seems to be getting some good feedback!
