Hello, friends! How’s your reading coming along? 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?
Now onto this week’s 3Ws…
I’m still toiling away at The Passage and I am literally reading at a snail’s pace. So slow that I can only make progress by 2 to 3 percent every day. How depressing is that lol
The thing is, it’s really dense in every sense of the word – from the character buildup to the world setting… Justin Cronin’s depictions are thorough and I don’t want to miss a thing, so I am taking my sweet time (I’m putting a positive spin here) trying to wrap my head around what is going on in the book.
As a matter of fact, I had a bit of a hiccup with this book when I plunged into Part Four (or Five?) where I had so many new characters popping up and the story went on about First Colony – a society (more like a sovereign state?) founded after the pandemic of lethal virus. There was just too much to absorb and process, I was completely at a loss and felt stuck. So much so, I was a bit demoralized and actually set this book aside for a while, this explains why I haven’t made much progress 😦
But I’ve started reading this again and hopefully I can get through this book in another couple of weeks!
I’m also listening to The Perfect Neighbors and reading The Public Image by Muriel Spark.
Some of you might know this, but I recently won a Muriel Spark Giveaway hosted by Mementomori and as you can see, I was officially entrusted with the important mission of spreading Muriel Spark love! lol Hence this book.
I finished these books since last Wednesday.
Click the title to read my thoughts 🙂
The winner of the week is definitely Footprints in the Frosting. It was a fast-paced, entertaining cozy-mystery!
I think I’ll continue to be plugging away at The Passage for some time and I am not quite sure if I can handle any serious, heavy reads in the meantime.
So, I think I’ll read mainly cozy-mysteries and if I can, I’ll read either Memento Mori by Muriel Spark or The Collector by John Fowles. Winning the giveaway seemed to have put me in a Modern Classics mood so I think I’ll pick up some books from that genre.
My TBR is completely thrown out of the window… scratch that lol
This is a curse of a mood reader, is it not?
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?
