WWW Wednesday #1

WWW Wednesday is hosted at Taking On a World of Words, participating in this after ages and ages… I do love getting back to blogging!

The three Ws are:

1. What are you currently reading?

I am currently about halfway into the Witcher series by Andrzej Sapkowski – yes, after having watched and liked the show; instead of the other way round. I have kind of binge-read the books, right now I am on The Tower of the Swallow. Hoping to finish the books soon!

2. What did you recently finish reading?

Just before I started this series, I’d read Maybe You Should Talk to Someone by Lori Gottlieb. Got this book after glowing recommendations from two people.. and found it interesting. There are things that really resonated with me, thought provoking, sad, some things that I was a little surprised by or at times disappointed.. It was an overwhelming read, and not always in a good way.

3. What do you think you’ll read next?

Books on my shelf that I want to pick up but haven’t – The Mirror and the Light by Hilary Mantel, The Hot Zone by Richard Preston, Home Fire by Kamila Shamsie. Here’s hoping I make time for these! Also, I wish I had something more comforting to read.. would love to finish one fantasy series and hop right onto another!

What about you – what have you been reading? What do you recommend I should read next? Any fantasy recommendations?

WWW Wednesdays #2

WWW Wednesdays is a meme hosted at MizB’s Should Be Reading. To play along just answer the following questions:

1. What are you currently reading?
2. What did you recently finish reading?
3. What do you think you’ll read next?

1. What are you currently reading?

I am on the verge of finishing Frankenstein by Mary Shelley with only the last twenty pages remaining. I started reading The Great Gatsby by Scott Fitzgerald. I am also reading the short story Ms. Found in a Bottle by Edgar Allan Poe.

2. What did you recently finish reading?

I read Carrie by Stephen King a couple of days ago. I also finally finished reading Helter Skelter – The True Story of the Manson Murders by Vincent Bugliosi. My first true crime novel, and I have been reading it since June! I read Poe‘s short story Metzengerstein today.

3. What do you think you’ll read next?

After The Great Gatsby, I plan on reading Mark Twain‘s A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court. I also want to read Peter Straub‘s Ghost Story this month!

What are you reading?

I am reading too many books together right now. And this week I am going to have a lot of free time on my hands. So I decided to participate in this meme this once!



1. What are you currently reading?


I’m reading John Connolly‘s The Book of Lost Things – it’s the first time I’ve read anything by him, and I think I’m definitely going to read more books by him. I’m also reading The Killing Floor, the first book in the Jack Reacher series by Lee Child – I had heard a lot about Lee Child before I picked up this book, but it isn’t quite up to my expectations yet. I am also reading a book of short stories called Nightmares and Dreamscapes by Stephen King.


2. What did you recently finished reading?


I read Stephen King‘s Cujo last week. I loved the book, which is no surprise, as it is Stephen King we are talking about. And finally finished reading The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn – I am still ashamed I never read Mark Twain till now. The last book I read was Bossypants by Tina Fey.


3. What do you want to read next?


Now that I am finally completely free for a week, I’ve decided to read three books that have been sitting in my TBR pile for a long time – Terry Pratchett‘s Nation, Neil Gaiman‘s Stardust and Diana Wynne Jones‘s Cart and Cwidder. That sounds like an awfully ambitious plan, I know, but I am hoping I can at least finish two of the three! I am particularly looking forward to reading Cart and Cwidder – it’s been such a long time since I read anything by Diana Wynne Jones!
