WWW Wednesdays #1 – June 18th

wwwwednesdays

Originally featured at Should Be Reading… WWW Wednesdays is all about answering the following three questions:

    • What are you currently reading?

atonement I started reading Atonement on Monday after various recommendations and I’m currently about halfway through and loving it. The way Ian McEwan writes just makes me want to read more and more, even if I don’t have a lot of time to read right now. I will be reading more of his work soon for sure! (Sweet Tooth and Saturday for example)

 

    • What did you recently finish reading?

extremely I finished Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer on Monday, and I loved the story about the quirky and curious boy called Oskar. Although the story is about grief and loss, the things that Oskar did or said were able to make me laugh at some points. Reading the story means entering the mind of a very special young boy, and it’s an interesting journey for sure.

 

    • What do you think you’ll read next?

pajamas There are a lot of interesting books on my TBR list, and it’s too hard to choose. So I followed littleonionwrites example and made a TBR cup from which I will randomly draw a next book. I got The Boy In The Striped Pajamas by John Boyne. I remember seeing the movie a few years back, and since I’m always interested in WWII themed books, I will enjoy this story for sure.

 

These are my answers; how about you?

    • When I saw littleonionwrites mentioning it, I went looking for my own cup/jar straight away. I like surprises, so the TBR cup is perfect, especially when I don’t know what to read next.

  2. I’ve been contemplating reading the Boy in the Striped Pajamas for years, but I’m just so afraid that it’s going to be overwhelmingly sad. I look forward to hearing your thoughts on it!

    • I understand what you are saying; the book is going to be sad for sure. But if the friendship between the two boys is anything like the movie, I think it will be worth it. I will be posting a review as soon as I finish it, probably next weekish… 😉

    • It’s a sad movie indeed and the book will be too for sure… But I think the story will make up for it. Thanks for visiting, I will be checking out yours in a second. 🙂
