The WWW Wednesday meme is hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words and is a great way to do a weekly update on what you’ve been reading and what you have planned.
To take part all you have to do is answer the following three questions:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
As expected I haven’t quite managed to finish Imaginary Friend by Stephen Chbosky as yet but I only have around 10% left to go so I should be done today or tomorrow. I’ve never read Perks of Being a Wallflower so this is my first book by Chbosky and I’ve been really enjoying it. Given it’s a horror I get the impression it’s very different from Perks but I do like his writing style. At over 700 pages it is a lot longer than the books I usually read but it’s kept me pretty much hooked throughout (to the extent that I almost missed my stop on the train twice). I have read some not so great things about the ending but fingers crossed it doesn’t let me down.
On audio I’ve been listening to Nevernight by Jay Kristoff. I’ve had a copy of the book for a couple of years now and have tried to read it more than once but somehow never made it past the first few pages. The audio does seem to be working a lot better for me, the narrator is brilliant and really brings it to life, but I suspect I’m going to switch back to the book at some point as I’m going to see Kristoff at the start of September and I take too long with audios to have it (and hopefully Godsgrave) finished in time.
No books finished this week unfortunately, I blame the cat.
I just realized at the weekend that it’s just over two weeks till I go see Jay Kristoff and I’ve read exactly one of his books (or given he co wrote Aurora Rising, half a book). I’ve therefore decided to make the next two weeks a Kristoff-athon. I for sure want to finish Nevernight and Godsgrave but I also have Lifel1k3 lined up too.
Have you read any of the books on my list this week? Any others you’d recommend? As always please feel free to leave comments and links below.
Happy Reading ❤
