WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. It’s fun and simple, you just have to answer the three W’s: What are you currently reading? What did you recently finish reading? What do you think you’ll read next? You can also join by answering and linking your blog post back on Sam’s post.
What are you currently reading:
On the back burners Committed by Elizabeth Gilbert and Silence by Shūsaku Endō
What did you recently finish reading:
Voyager by Diana Gabaldon (book #3 in the Outlander series) – this book was my long weekend, handed in a big assignment treat. And what a treat it was. There were a few things I was perhaps a bit disappointed in but overall I just love the passion between Jamie and Claire and all the adventures they manage to find themselves in and the characters they surround themselves with. I was just mostly disappointed with how the Jenny/Laoghaire/Claire issue was resolved. Diana amazed me with her plot creativity
I also finished The Luminaries by Eleanor Catton somewhat recently after a mammoth effort – the thing about audio books is you don’t know how big they are (page wise) when choosing and this one was a 700 pager!
What do you think you’ll read next:
The Messenger by Markus Zusak, our next bookclub book. I’m pretty keen to get into Outlander #4 too!
Which children’s book I liked:
Graeme Base’s Little Bug Books very cute, cool opening flaps and my 4 year old loved finding the bug!
