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?
The Silmarillion by J. R. R. Tolkien
I have finally stared this book! Hooray!
I started reading The Silmarillion on Monday and I’m enjoying it so far. I love The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings series so learning more about the world those books are set in is fascinating. I hope to have this book finished by Friday and then I’ll probably review it next week.
Infamous by Sherrilyn Kenyon
I think that I should have re-read the first two books before reading this one since it has been four years since I last delved into the Chronicles of Nick. I genuinely have no idea what’s going on at the moment but I am only on the second chapter so I’m sure that I’ll remember the premise of the previous books soon. I want to have this book finished by Saturday but I may have to put it down until I’ve re-read the first two. We’ll see.
Paradise Lost by John Milton
I love epic poems and Paradise Lost is no exception. I have read it before but I’m trying to read it more thoroughly this time (rather than just skimming it before referencing it in an essay) and I’ve been taking actual notes. I might share a photo of those notes when I’m reviewing it.
If you don’t know anything about Paradise Lost it’s a poem first published in 1667 about the Fall of Man.
The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan
I liked this book a lot. I thought that it was an interesting direction to go with the Percy Jackson world and it was nice to read a book from a god’s perspective for once. Apollo is also one of my favourite Greek gods (and one of my favourite Riordan characters) so I was happy with Riordan’s choice of god.
He, She and It by Marge Piercy
I really enjoyed this. It was great and I need to read more cyberpunk novels now that I’ve completed this one. Marge Piercy is a fantastic author and you just get absorbed into the world that she has created. Utterly fantastic.
Review will be up tomorrow.
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
I have read this book many times before and it gets better every time I read it. It was the first crime novel that I ever read and I’m determined to read more Swedish crime novels because they’re just amazing. Please recommend me some!
I’ll be reviewing this book when I’ve re-read the whole original trilogy.
What I’m Reading Next:
The Girl Who Played with Fire by Stieg Larsson
I’m re-reading this book (and the final book in the original trilogy before I reattempt to read The Girl in the Spider’s Web. I was going to start if after finishing The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo but I got too caught up in other books. I’ll start it when I have completed one of the three books that I’m currently reading. I know that I love this book though so I’m very much looking forward to re-reading it.
The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle
I’m finally preparing to read the final book in my Sherlock Holmes collection. I loved most of the other Sherlock Holmes stories that I’ve read and I’m sure that I’ll love these too.
I’m planning on reviewing this book at the same time as I review The Valley of Fear and His Last Bow so I need to read this book before I post the reviews of those two books.
What are you reading this week?
