WWW Wednesday: November 8th, 2017

Hello, friends! It’s time for another WWW Wednesday!

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam@Taking on a World of Words.
To participate, just answer the three questions below and link back to her or put the link to your post in the comment section of her blog so that others can look at your answers!

 

The Three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next? 

 

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë  and Coraline by Neil Gaiman.
I’m 129 pages into Jane Eyre and 60% in Coraline. I initially enjoyed Coraline an awful lot and couldn’t stop turning pages, but from a bit over halfway in the book, my interest got somewhat deflated lol  I simply got a bit tired and don’t feel like picking it up right now.

On the other hand, I am so addicted to Jane Eyre. I’m loving this book SO MUCH!! This is my very first Charlotte Brontë and I have never read Jane Eyre before so I didn’t expect it to be so raw and emotionally charged to be honest. The first several chapters knocked me off and I was literally stunned by the vivid and strong descriptions of bullying Jane goes through.  The portrayal of her life in Lowood is captivating, too! I love that this book is narrated in first person which was a bit of a surprise for me, and it makes this book even more enthralling and gripping for me 🙂
I think I’ll set aside Coraline for the time being and see if I feel like going back to it again.

I recently finished Make me Yours by Rebecca Brooks.

I got this eARC from NetGalley and although I started this book with lower expectations, I ended up enjoying it a lot.
This book is not a mere romance book with hot, steamy sexual scenes but it packs a lot of elements – friendship, parenting, responsibilities, love, and second chance.
I think the underlining theme of this book is ‘second chance’ and ‘trust.’ You can read my thoughts by clicking the link below.

Make Me Yours

Since the book I’m currently tackling is massive with 652 pages, I don’t think I’ll get to finish this book anytime soon. Honestly, I don’t feel like reading anything but Jane Eyre right now. That said though, should a miracle happen and I get to finish it, then I think I’ll jump into The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Brontë,  Yes, I am going to read all Brontë sisters’ books! 😀
As usual, I know almost nothing about this book, but I personally think that’s the best way to go into a book.

(Yikes, I’m already digressing from my November TBR… the curse of a mood reader!!)

That’s it for today.
What are the books that you’re currently reading?
Have you finished any books recently? What books are you planning to read next?
Let me know in the comments below so that we can have some fun chatting about books!

Thank you so much for reading as always and I’ll see you all in my next post! 😉

  1. Mood readers for the win, haha!
    I’m trying to stick a BIT to my November TBR but it’s been a huge endeavor. Wanted to get my currently reading-shelf to 1 but it’s been going between 5 and 6 all the time. All those books I started and are.. waiting on my nightstand.. They’re getting on my nerves!

    Anyway! Yay for you for taking on some classics. Those really aren’t my cup of tea, although I keep trying one once in a while. Maybe one day I’ll find one I completely fall in love with.. Who knows!

    1. Thanks, Kathy! Yes, mood readers for the win, no doubt! lol But sticking to my TBR is indeed a huge commitment!! and wow, do you usually have 5 to 6 books in currently reading shelf? Incredible!

      1. I know the feeling, haha. I’m having a problem with my TBR as well this time. Pretty sure it’s the first time since I started setting myself a TBR..

        That escalated because of books I didn’t feel like reading anymore, throwing them aside, picking up something else and then stop reading them after a couple of chapters as well.. For some reason I’m having an impossible time picking them back up and actually finish reading.. :’D

        1. Aww, I feel you! Because that’s what I think is going to happen with Coraline… :’-) and when that happens, I sometimes worry if I have gotten into a reading slump… thank goodness I haven’t!!

          1. It’s always such a pity when that happens! For your sake, I hope it doesn’t happen with four to five books like I have.. :’)
            Ugh, totally get your point. Every time I’m eyeing that stack of currently reading I feel like a reading slump, simply because I can’t find the motivation to pick them up anymore.. :’) Or I can just throw them off of my “currently reading” and back to my TBR-pile.. That’s another option, although an unfair one, haha.

            1. Ooops, I’ve done that unfair thing a lot lol When I just didn’t get myself back in the mood for picking it up again, I put it back in my TBR shelf to slim down my currently-reading shelf… haha!

                  1. Yep, indeed! Just checked my CR and November goals and I can move two books to my TBR again without any trouble. Two books that I really don’t feel like reading right now anyway. Still have to finish one before the end of the year and the other two.. We’ll see.
                    Because You Love To Hate Me [Ameriie] might be a DNF since I really don’t like a lot of the stories I’ve read so far..

    1. Yes, Alex!! I am so in love with Jane Eyre right now!! Likewise you, I just can’t put it down once I start reading it! I can relate to you that you flew through it… I was a bit intimidated by the writing style for it being Classics, but surprisingly, it was easy enough to follow, which was really a nice surprise for me!

  3. My daughter and I loved Coraline! I need to reread it as it’s been years. The movie is played in our house a lot and it’s my four year olds favorite. There are definitely some strange parts, lol. 😆

    I haven’t read Jane Erye, but have a copy There are so many classics I still need to read. So glad you are enjoying it and can’t wait for your review! 🖤

    1. Thank you, Mischenko! Yes, the first half in Coraline is definitely creepy!! But for some reason, it also cracked me up quite a lot. I thought Neil Gaiman’s wicked sense of humor is seeping out of his sentences if that makes any sense.
      I haven’t watched the movie, either but now that one of my fellow blogger vehemently recommended that I watch the movie, I’ll look for it on NetFlix! lol
