WWW Wednesday (7)

The book meme WWW Wednesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading.

The aim of WWW Wednesday is 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?

I seem to be in a bit of a reading slump at the moment. It's taking forever to get through my books which is very unlike me. But I guess we all go through these at some points. It is frustrating me though especially as I've committed to a number of group/buddy reads which have start dates and I'm feeling under pressure! That's not what reading should be a bout so I need to prioritise and let some slide...

What are you currently reading?
I am also still reading Shades of Grey by Jasper Fforde. I am enjoying it but I feel like throwing the book right now as it's taken me nearly a month to get through and I'm sick of the cover now! It's taking a while to read because the language is very clever, very subtle with plays on words, sarcasm and humour throughout and I don't want to miss anything.

I started reading Prince of Thorns by Mark Lawrence for a buddy read. One of the reasons I love fantasy books is because of the world building and the interesting characters. This book, which was the author's debut, has intriguing characters but it lacks the world building aspect so I feel the story is lacking somewhat. It is holding my interest though and I want to find out where the story is leading. It is the first book in the Broken Empire series.

What did you recently finish reading?
I finished reading Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden which was fantastic. I gave it 5 stars and it made it on to my favourites list. I can't believe I waited so long to read it. I highly recommend it if you haven't read it already.

What do you think you’ll read next?
In theory, I am supposed to be reading Hexed by Kevin Hearne for another buddy read. I really want to read it as I loved the first book in the series. However, the buddy read started today and I am nowhere near finishing the two books I am currently reading. We shall see...

Have you read any of these? And what did you think?


  1. I haven't read these books but all of them sound and look nice. Maybe in the future I'll read them. My www:
