WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted by Taking On a World of Words. (Formally hosted at Should Be Reading)
The only rules are to answer the following three questions:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
Die Trying by Lee Child
I read a few more chapters of Die Trying this week. I’m enjoying the chapters from Reacher’s point of view but the other chapters are annoying me a bit. It’s taking a while to get to any action but it’s still good. I just wish there were more chapters from Reacher’s point of view because I enjoy reading his voice.
I have currently read 35% of this book.
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
No progress on this book this week. I am enjoying this book but the lack of chapters means that I can’t find a good place to put it down. I think I need a long, uninterrupted period of time where I can finish the book. I plan on dedicating one day to it in the next couple of days.
I have currently read 25% of this book.
The Girl in the Spider’s Web by David Lagercrantz
I read another chapter this week.
I am enjoying this book. It’s going very slowly though. I’d like to finish it soon though because I’d like to read the original trilogy again.
I have currently read 15% of this book.
The Hound of the Baskervilles by Arthur Conan Doyle
I did enjoy The Hound of the Baskervilles but I didn’t enjoy it as much as the other Sherlock Holmes stories that I’ve read. I will be publishing a full review on this book next month so look out for that!
What I’m reading next:
Metamorphoses by Ovid (Golding’s 1567 translation)
I’ve read a new translation of Ovid’s Metamorphoses but for my essay about translations of Ovid in the Renaissance period I need to read this translation. Golding’s translation was used by William Shakespeare, Edmund Spenser, and so many other famous writers of the early modern period.
I’m going to read this in one day. I need to.
The Mysteries of Udolpho by Ann Radcliffe
This is one of the books that is on the reading list for my Gothic module at university. I have read extracts of it before but I’m looking forward to reading the book in its entirety.
I’m starting it in January even though I’m not studying until the middle of February. I need to give myself enough time to get through it.
The Monk by Matthew Lewis
Another book that has been set for my Gothic module. I have read extracts of this one too because my BA ‘Romantic period writing’ and ‘Gothic’ modules were apparently fairly thorough.
This one isn’t due to be studied until March but I have other books to read for the module too so I need to get this one read before the module starts.
