WWW Wednesdays #7 – August 6th

wwwwednesdays

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

  • What are you currently reading?

theknownworldI just started The Known World by Edward P. Jones as part of the Dusting Off The Shelf Read-A-Thon… This one will fulfull the challenge of reading a book set in the past; it’s about a black farmer and former slave in the US. I cannot say much of it yet besides that it is nice to have a little time out of the horror genre.

 

 

  • What did you recently finish reading?

fliesI was able to finish Lord Of The Flies by William Golding today, and boy those were some screwed up kids! Definitely not what I was expecting of this classic… I’ve also finished The Shining by Stephen King, and both are part of the Dusting Off The Shelf Read-A-Thon. Reviews will be up before the weekend! (As well as the review of The Middle Passage by V.S. Naipaul I finished last week…)

 

  • What do you think you’ll read next?

mountainsIt’s probably going to be either And The Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini or The Name Of The Wind by Patrick Rothfuss… It depends on my mood when I finish the book I’m currently reading. For now I cannot decide between the magical world of the Kingkiller chronicle and another surely mindblowing tale written by Hosseini… Any suggestions which I should read first?

    • Same here! I’ve been having The Name Of The Wind on my TBR list for way too long now… With the read-a-thon I have finally a great excuse to pick this one up before other books. 😉

  1. Oh those are tough to pick between! King Killer is really good, but then so is And the Mountains Echoed. Tough decisions! They’re both pretty heavy, but Mountains is more emotionally heavy and might make you cry a bit. (I know I did). So if your not in that kind of mood, maybe fantasy is best. Can’t wait to see what you end up going for 🙂

    • I’ve heard great things about both books, and I guess I haven’t read neither because they are considered ´heavy´. I’m still not decided which to read, and might end up just picking one with my eyes closed. 😉

    • Thanks! After reading The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, I know I will love And The Mountains Echoed… It’s been on my shelf since December, and cannot explain exactly why I left it unread so long.
