Welcome to WWW Wednesday! This meme was formerly hosted by MizB at Should be Reading and revived on Taking on a World of Words. Just answer the three W’s!
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: Empire of Storms (Throne of Glass, book 5) by Sarah J. Maas
So I’ve been working on this book for like 3 weeks now, which is frustrating since it’s the first one of the series that I haven’t read before, but I feel like I’m finally getting back to making some progress on it.
I’m about a quarter of the way through, and my main thought right now is “oh no, Manon!” so we’ll see where that goes. I’m pretty worried right now.
I’m hoping to finish this within a week so I can move on to the next one.
Wives and Daughters by Elizabeth Gaskell
I’ve only barely started this one, but I’m aiming to take it a chapter or two at a time so I’m doing pretty well.
I learned when I read Persuasion last year that I pay a lot better attention to the minutia of a classic text when I read it really slow. Not to mention, a lot of them have a very dense feeling to them because of how people spoke and wrote at the time, and reading them slow helps to not get sick of that.
So far I’m really liking it, even though nothing much has happened yet. Mostly just a girl met some ladies. But I’ve seen a screen adaptation of this so I know when things will start happening and I’m not discouraged in the least.
Recently Finished: The Twilight Saga // Stephenie Meyer
I hate myself for rereading these, but they served their purpose.
I explained the purpose in this post, but basically I wanted to punish myself for being stuck on Empire of Storms for weeks.
Of course I also had an ulterior motive. That is, I am a lot more likely to make a post complaining about something I hate than I am to make a post about something I like. Because the things I like I’m engrossed in, and the things I hate I want to procrastinate on! So I hoped that reading a book I knew I’d want to complain about would make me blog more.
Oh look, it totally did! Success!
Reading Next: Tower of Dawn (Throne of Glass, book 6) by Sarah J. Maas
To be honest, I’m not sure what to expect here so there’s not much to say. I’ve heard both good and bad things, but I’m hopeful.
If anyone has read this and has an opinion I’d love to hear it.
