WWW Wednesday [07/2/2018]

Welcome back to WWW Wednesday, hosted by Taking On a World of Books.

wwwwednesday

The aim is to answer the following 3 questions and link up with other book bloggers:

  1. What are you currently reading?
  2. What did you recently finish reading?
  3. What do you think you’ll read next?

 


 

1. What are you currently reading?

Still stuck in my slump and trying my best to get out of it.

  • Wives and Daughters by Elizabeth Gaskell – 54%
  • Further Chronicles of Avonlea by L.M. Montgomery – I realised as I opened it that I bought it in 2008 (I write my initials and the month and year or purchase on the front page). So my TTT post from yesterday is all wrong!
  • Lady Death by Lyudmila Pavlichenko
  • Writing & Selling Short Stories & Personal Essays by Windy Lynn Harris

2. What did you recently finish reading? (You can read my reviews by clicking on the title)

I decided to DNF The Invention of Celebrity. It is extremely well researched and contains lots of interesting information, so it’s not bad by any means. But I found it is quite scholarly in tone and I’m struggling to get through it, I have been trying for about a month now. I do feel “freer” now I have made that decision.

I also read the first 90 pages of Outlander and found it quite badly written. I’ve seen most of the first season already so I know what happens and I really can’t be bothered with a book this size I don’t find well-written.

Women & Children First got DNFed too, as I got about 100 pages in and didn’t care for the characters at all. It’s another long book which I have no time for.

Finally, I tried reading A View Across the Valley, but I wasn’t interested in it anymore. That’s one of the problem with having so many books on my TBR and waiting so long to read them, I end up losing interest in some of them. So I’ll donate it, hopefully someone else will give it some love!

I do feel better now I got rid of some of the books that were weighing me down.

3. What do you think you’ll read next?

I haven’t thought about it yet.

I hope you all had a good reading week!
