WWW Wednesdays #6 – July 23rd

wwwwednesdays

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

  • What are you currently reading?

throneofglassI’m currently reading Throne Of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. I wasn’t going to read YA for a while, but since I’ve set a goal for myself to use the TBR cup to randomly draw the next read for at least what’s left of this month, I’m sticking with this title. I’m not that far away yet in the story, but until now it is definitely promising!

 

 

  • What did you recently finish reading?

testimonyJust as I started reading Throne Of Glass, I realized I had some books waiting to be returned next week, and I decided to read Testimony by Anita Shreve first. It is not a book I would normally read, and I thought the writing was a bit poor and lacking creativity. The overall story makes you wonder about the facts described, the lies and the consequences… I will be writing a review shortly.

 

  • What do you think you’ll read next?

5848Like I said above, I have some books waiting to be returned next week, so I will read The Middle Passage by V.S. Naipaul next. It is a non fiction travel story which gives us a portrait of Trinidad and four Caribbean societies. It’s not my typical read, but the book sounds interesting enough to not want to give it back unread.

    • Thanks for your link! I haven’t had much time to read Throne Of Glass yet, mostly because of the books I have to give back next week and I don’t want to rush… I think I will read The Middle Passage first and start Throne Of Glass from the beginning so I can enjoy the book better. 🙂

  1. Looking forward to your take on The Middle Passage! I haven’t read it, but I actually live in one of the countries it focuses on, Guyana. I know a lot of it’s history even though I wasn’t born here, so if you feel like talking about anything, don’t hesitate to drop me a line!

    P.S. I saw in the GR blurb of it that he follows a “racially charges” election campaign at one point. I find that a little amusing, because down here, there’s pretty much no difference between racism and politics. Only the young kids, like my generation and those coming up, haven’t been immersed in it from young.

    • I’m going to start reading The Middle Passage today, and I’m excited about it. It will be interesting to compare the information of the book with your experiences in Guyana… Especially since it’s hard for a non fiction book to be completely neutral and for the writer to have full access to information. 🙂

  2. The Middle Passage sounds very interesting! I love travel non fiction, and I need to read more. Can’t wait to see what you think about it.

    • I will be starting The Middle Passage today, and I will have it finished before the weekend… I don’t read enough travel non fiction either, so that’s why I’m putting Throne Of Glass on hold for a little while. 🙂
