WWW Wednesdays #8 – August 13th

wwwwednesdays

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

  • What are you currently reading?

thenameofthewindI’m reading The Name Of The Wind by Patrick Rothfuss as part of the Dusting Off The Shelf Read-A-Thon… I haven’t read as many pages as I would have wanted to… An eye infection is keeping me from reading for long periods at a time, boo! Until now I’m loving the story though, and I’m glad I finally picked up my copy of this one. I hope to finish The Name Of The Wind before the read-a-thon ends!

 

  • What did you recently finish reading?

Itheknownworld finished The Known World by Edward P. Jones a few days ago, but haven’t had the time to write a review yet. The idea of the book is interesting; a story about different slaves and their owners in the US of the 19th century. It was a slow read though and the many different POV’s made it confusing sometimes to keep reading and understanding the bigger picture. Not one of the best books I’ve read, but still worth it if you like the historical fiction genre.

 

  • What do you think you’ll read next?

mountainsIt’s probably going to be And The Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini… Although it depends on if I’m in the mood to read a ‘heavy’ book. I still have Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka on the read-a-thon list as well, which is a relatively short book, so depending on my readingspeed, I might choose the second one to see if I can finish another book before the challenge ends.
