3W Wednesday – 23rd Feb

What are you reading?

Claws of the Genestealer – Cavan Scott

This came about due to a conversation with BooshHammer on Instagram – they posted about the first book in this series. I offered to read the second one along with him, as these books are actually pretty great introductions to the Warhammer 40k setting for youngsters. I read the first one a while back and have been dawdling over reading the rest of them, well, I’m now pretty attached to these kids and am really eager to read more of their adventures.

What did you read last?

Fear to Tread – James Swallow

Book 21 in the Horus Heresy series, another buddy read, this one with Dave. I do feel guilty for finishing this one already and leaving Dave behind. But, once the words got flowing and the story kicked in I couldn’t put it down. One of the better books in the Horus Heresy series, centering around the Blood Angels and their… problems. Very characterful book that just fits well with the rest of the series. Nice to revisit James Swallow again, I loved Flight of the Eisenstein and hated Nemesis. I’m very glad to see him back on track with his stories; he writes this sort of thing very well and his descriptive work is fantastic. Full review for this one is pending.

The Handmaids Tale – Margaret Atwood

I’ve been watching the TV series that is based on this book and when the book I was looking for wasn’t available in the local library, I thought I’d pick this up instead. It’ll be interesting to see how the two differ. I mentioned this book to Dave during my Livestream, and he said it was unlikely he’d ever read Atwood, I don’t think I got a reason why, so I’m also interested to see if there’s anything dreadful in here that I have been lucky to avoid until now! Obviously, this reading projection might change overnight, but it’s good to have ideas!

  1. I was hesitant to read Fear to Tread when it was first released, as the duology Swallow wrote about the Blood Angels was IMO terrible. He really made strides as an author though, and this one was a great read.


  2. Was going to say you left me in the dust, but I just hav not been able to get into reading as often or quick as you have flown through Fear to Read. Well done. I hope that I’ll like the novel as well as you did.
