WWW Wednesdays #2 – June 25th

wwwwednesdays

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

  • What are you currently reading?

mazeI’m probably going to finish The Maze Runner by James Dashner later tonight, as I have only about 50 pages left…  The story itself about a post apocalyptic world where a bunch of teenagers have to find their way out of a maze sounds interesting. But although I know this is YA literature, the made-up slang and dialogue is annoying me quite a bit and distracts me from the story…

 

  • What did you recently finish reading?

pajamasI finished The Boy In The Striped Pajamas a few days ago and still have to post the review… I must say John Boyne was able to bring tears to my eyes with his story about a nine year old boy Bruno. Set during WWII, we get to know Bruno about the time his Nazi-father gets a job at the Auschwitz concentration camp. Bruno is too young to really understand what is going on at Auschwitz, and makes friends with a Jewish boy (prisoner at the camp)….

 

  • What do you think you’ll read next?

faultI know, I’m probably the last person on earth to read this book. I saw the movie trailer the other day, and knew it was finally time to tackle The Fault In Our Stars by John Green. In a way I’m a bit afraid to read it since it has created such an hype, but I guess I want to see for myself what this book is all about.

 

 

These are my answers; how about you?

    • I managed to finish The Maze Runner yesterday, and felt it wasn’t as good as I hoped… Although I might still read the sequel.
      I saw the movie before I read The Boy In The Striped Pajamas and the book is just as sad as the movie… But since the book has a great story behind it, I didn’t mind.
      I’m going to start with The Fault In Our Stars today, so I hope that it lives up to its expectations. 🙂

    • I’m reading The Fault In Our Stars right know and until now I’m enjoying it for sure!

      And I’ll have to see the movie again to properly judge, but what I can say is that I really enjoyed the writing style Boyne used and it made the story even more powerful. 🙂
