WWW Wednesdays #12 – October 1st

wwwwednesdays

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

  • What are you currently reading?

blackrosesI just started reading Black Roses yesterday, and I’m not that far into the story at all yet. But until now I like this novel set in the thirties of Germany and written by Jane Thynne. I’m having high hopes for this one! It’s also my first actual book after various ebooks, so I’m enjoying every minute of having a real book in my hands again. Although I have to admit it feels strange after reading so many ebooks.

  • What did you recently finish reading?

mrmercedesI finished Mr. Mercedes yesterday, and I still have to write a full review. What I can say for now that Stephen King definitely didn’t deliver with his newest novel. I just couldn’t like it, and I kept wondering if he really did write this one… Too bad; I had high hopes with this book as I normally enjoy his work. Back to the King‘s oldies it is! (I have The Dead Zone and Joyland still lined up for reading.)

 

  • What do you think you’ll read next?

Ifloodtide have to return some books to a friend before the 21st, so I have moved A Matter Of Honour by Jeffrey Archer and Flood Tide by Clive Cussler up my TBR list and made them into my next reads. They are not books I normally choose, but I’m going to give them a go anyway. Anyone read any of these two titles?

    • I’m only about 50 pages into the story so far, so I cannot properly judge Black Roses yet. But what I can say is that until now I’ve read better. I’m not convinced by the prose and the characters feel a bit flat so far. If you are looking for a great historical fiction novel, check out The Dance Of The Spirits by Catherine Aerie. I’ve finished this novel recently and absolutely loved it. 🙂

    • Maybe I had to high expectations, but I definitely feel his earlier work is way better than Mr. Mercedes. But who knows, you might end up loving this novel anyway!

  1. I haven’t read any of these books. It’s good that you’re trying books you don’t normally, I keep meaning to do that and failing. Maybe Mr King had a ghostwriter or something, I guess everyone can have an off time. I hope it’s not a sign of things to come for those who enjoy his books.

    • It’s been hard to leave the YA genre alone, but I’m liking the diversity and I’m willing to take a less pleasant read or two if it means I can explore less-read genres. And I was thinking the exact same thing; maybe he did have a ghostwriter with this one… Luckily King has written so many previous books that I will have quite a few older books left to read before I have to worry about the newest books. 😉
