WWW Wednesday – 9th October ’19

It’s a slow start to October

Welcome to my WWW Wednesday meme post, originally hosted by Taking in a World of Words. All I need to do is answer the three questions below which all start with a W.

The three W’s are
  1. What are you currently reading?
  2. What did you recently finish reading?
  3. What do you think you’ll be reading next?

What I’m currently reading?

The Dragon Republic by R. F. Kuang – Just started this and I’m only 2% in but I’m so happy to be back! I do have problems remembering how the first one ended and the exact details of the first book, so I’m a little confused. But the author gave a quick summery of what had happened between the end of the first book and the start of the second within the first chapter which helped my memory a bit. Again the writing is great and the characters a funny. Very happy to be here 🙂

The Complete Maus by Art Spiegelman – I’m almost finish with this, but it’s not an easy read. It’s brutal but also doesn’t dwell on the brutality that much which makes it easier to read. Then again it’s a true story so it’s harder hitting anyway. I though as a comic it would be a quick read, but it’s too heavy for me to be a quick read. I only have 30ish pages left so I’ll be done by the weekend.

Gone With The Wind by Margaret Mitchell – It’s a surprisingly easy and entertaining read. But it’s over 1000 pages so I hope to finish before Christmas… Progress so far: started on 2nd September, 4th Sep on 3% (iBook page 118/4503), 11th September on 5% (iBook page 243/4503), 18th September on 14% (iBook page 614/4503) – Well, hello Rhett…!. 25th September on 16% (iBook page 718/4503), 9th October on 27% (iBook page 1226/4503) – the long gazes #swoon.

What I just finished?

Angel Mage by Garth Nix – Review to come! It was a very entertaining read. It was fun and full of adventure with a very original magic system and refreshingly diverse.

What I’m reading next?

I’ don’t know yet. I’ve got another 600 pages of Dragon Republic to get through before I pick my next read so let’s chill a bit.

until next time
