WWW Wednesday – 24th July 2019

Hey all! *waves* It’s been a month and I’m finally back with another post. I’m going to work on posting more regularly but I’m not making any promises either yet.

Today I’ve decided to do WWW Wednesday. This is a meme hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words that I first saw over at Meeghan Reads and love seeing her posts so finally decided to give it a go.

The three W’s to be addressed are…

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

What Am I Currently Reading?

I am currently reading Brisingr by Christopher Paolini the 3rd book in the Inheritance Cycle. This is a series I’ve been meaning to finish for ages but this book is just so big and intimidating.

I’m at page 171 and plan to get to 218 before the end of the day so I can finish it before the end of July for The Book Junkie Trials. It might be a tight squeeze.

What have I read recently?

Since this is my first WWW Wednesday I’m sharing all the books I’ve read so far this month. So far I have finished:

  • The Outcasts (Brotherband Chronicles #1) by John Flanagan
  • Trigger Warning: Short Fictions and Disturbances by Neil Gaiman
  • Interrupted: Life Beyond Words by Rachel Coker (my quickest read)

I enjoyed all of these but love Interrupted: Life Beyond Words because it’s an old favourite of mine. I plan to do a mini review of these books next month involved in the Book Junkie Trials.

I also read My Hero Academia Volume 1 because Jesse the Reader started a Manga Monday Bookclub. I love BookTube. It was also easy to fit in around my reads because it was so quick.

3/4 Complete

What do I plan on reading next?

I imagine that for most of this week I will be working on Brisingr since I’m only at page 171 and the book is 763 long. But when I do finish it I will be up to the bookie grail for The Book Junkie Trials which is Stardust by Neil Gaiman. It is a considerably shorter book at around 250 pages which I hope I will be able to finish in a day or so.

What about you? What have you read recently?

    I’ve never read the Eragon series (Inheritance?) but it’s one that I always see and think “… maybe?” Is it worth it, Anna??
    I am also horrible at reading Gaiman’s books. I ADORED Neverwhere, but now I’m, concerned the others won’t live up to its hype (in my mind…)
    Also, I’m so glad you have joined us for WWW Wednesday!! And thank you for the link back to my post 💕

      I’ve enjoyed all the Inheritance Cycle books I’ve read so and think they’re worth it. However, they do get thicker and therefore more intimidating.

      I haven’t actually read many of Neil Gaiman’s works. Trigger Warning was left over from my Grade 12 English Writing class. I really enjoyed some of the short stories and definitely plan on checking out more of his works.

      You’re welcome. Thanks for commenting. 😀

      I haven’t seen the movie. Although, I have heard people say it’s better. Trigger Warnings is a collection of short stories I originally got for my grade 12 English Writing class. Some I loved some were not my favourite but overall I definitely enjoyed it. I’m thinking of checking out of some of his other works to. Starting with Good Omens.

      Thanks for commenting. 😀

    I read the first in Paolini’s series but never finished it. After so long, I’d have to start over! Good luck finishing it. Happy reading and thanks for participating in WWW Wednesday!
