WWW Wednesday – March 1, 2017

WWW Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Sam at Taking On a Word of Words. Yes folks, it’s already March! Can’t believe how fast this year is already going. Missed a few days of blogging because I had the plague. Thankfully, I’m feeling much better now. On with the show!

What are you currently reading?

Started up with The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien last night. This one will take a while, so I’m just going to savor it. I also need to watch The Two Towers movie – I haven’t done that since finishing the book.

Also got quite a bit of progress on RoseBlood by A.G. Howard. I’m . . . well . . . I’m still on the fence on this one. It’s a bit strange and I don’t know how I feel about it yet. It’s definitely caught my interest, so I will keep reading to the end. I want to see where she’s going with this.

Still also reading Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

What did you recently finish reading?

Nothing new to report here. The last thing I finished was The Two Towers and haven’t finished anything else since then.

What do you think you’ll read next?

Still planning on reading Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo to finish this series.

That’s my status for the week. Please leave your WWW in comments!

WWW Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Sam at Taking On a World of Words. Three questions, three answers. Let’s go!

What are you currently reading?

This answer has only changed slightly since last week. I read a bit more in RoseBlood by A.G. Howard, which has been a bit odd so far. This is the one that was inspired by the Phantom of the Opera, if you remember. Well, I am very protective of my Phantom stories, more so than any other fandom, so it’s been a bit weird seeing such a different take on it. I’m still not sure what I think, although I’m not even half way in yet. So we’ll see.

Also working on Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, although I missed posting about it this Monday. Might try to do that tomorrow.

You might notice something missing from this part. That’s because . . .

What did you recently finish reading?

I finally finished reading The Two Towers!! And I mean just finished, because I literally closed the book about ten minutes ago. I waited to make this post so that I could say that I finished it instead of continuing to plod through it. So yay!

What do you think you’ll read next?

Definitely will be reading The Return of the King, because of course. After that, I think I will stop reading with Mark Reads just for a little while and start working on some of the series I need to try and complete. I challenged myself to complete five of them from my list, so I should probably think about that. To that end, I will say that I will also read Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo, book #2 in The Grisha series. I read the first book, Shadow and Bone, at the end of last year, although it was during my blogging slump, so I never actually reviewed it. I should probably do that at some point.

WWW Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Sam at Taking On a World of Words. Three questions, three answers. Go!

What are you currently reading?

Still working through The Two Towers. It’s been my bedtime book, just because I find it very flowing and relaxing. I am also reading RoseBlood by A.G. Howard. I loved her Alice in Wonderland series (Splintered), and this new book is inspired by the Phantom of the Opera.

What did you recently finish reading?

Tonight I finished The Circle by David Eggers. Got this one through my local library’s digital collection, but first heard about it after seeing a trailer online for the upcoming movie staring Tom Hanks and Emma Watson. It looked interesting and, well, let’s just say that I finished it in less than a day’s time.

What do you think you’ll read next?

The Return of the King, eventually. Other than that, I have no firm plans. I have so many books on my TBR, I’m almost paralyzed by it. So many too choose from!! Can’t decide!! Maybe I’ll set up a poll and let you guys pick for me.

Holy cow, it’s February already! How did that happen!

WWW Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. Three questions, three answers. Let’s go!

What are you currently reading?

Still reading The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien, although I’m pretty close to finishing it. They’ve left Rivendell, they’ve gotten stuck on Caradhras, they just need to get through Moria. At least, I think that’s it, from what I can remember. Anyway, I’m almost done. I should finish in the next couple of days.

What did you recently finish reading?

I finally read The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood and it was so good! Seriously, everyone who told me I really needed to read that book was absolutely right. I tackled it in about a day and a half. I also re-read Looking for Alaska by John Green. After reading it, I realized that I never actually reviewed it here on the blog, so that review will probably go up tomorrow.

What do you think you’ll read next?

Definitely The Two Towers and The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien. I need to finish the trilogy and then have a massive movie marathon. I dearly loved the movies and became a huge fan of that whole cast. I saw an article where some of the cast had a mini reunion and they took some really funny pictures. Good stuff.

WWW Wednesday – January 18, 2017

WWW NewWWW Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. Three questions, three answers. Go!

What are you currently reading?

Um.

Well.

Actually.

*whispers* I’m not currently reading anything.

I know, I know, that’s weird, right? But I actually finished the book I was reading last night and I haven’t even picked out a new one, let alone started it. I used to read several books at a time, but lately it’s so much easier to read just one. My brain can only handle so much these days.

What have you recently finished reading?

Several things! Since last Wednesday’s post, I finished reading The Hobbit (review can be found here). I also read and finished The Plantation by Stella Samiotou-Fitzsimons. It was pretty good. I’m a little on the fence about continuing with the series though. Hard to explain why. The book that I just finished last night was The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton. Yes, I know that book wasn’t listed anywhere on my last WWW post. I ended up reading it because A). it had been sitting on my shelf for a while, and B). I needed it to help complete a Seasonal Reading Challenge task.

What do you think you’ll read next?

Oh boy, not sure at this point, and of course, it might change by next week. I have been reading along with the reviews over at Mark Reads, going back to when he started his own website. I love his reviews and didn’t realize how many books I had missed reading with him. He’s the reason I read The Hobbit this time around. He is taking a break before continuing into The Lord of the Rings by reading Looking for Alaska by John Green, which is a book that I adore. So I might do that. I might go ahead and read the next book after The Plantation if I can track it down; it’s called The Dark Legion. I also still want to read The Handmaid’s Tale, as I said last week, so it’s pretty much a toss up. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Still chipping away at The Hobbit, but I am hoping to finish it tonight. I did start The Plantation by Stella Samiotou-Fitzsimons, but just barely. I’ll be able to devote more attention to it once I am done.

What have you recently finished reading?

Nothing new here, since I haven’t actually finished anything yet. Grrrr.  No reading slumps this year! Please! If you’re curious, you can see my post last week.

What do you think you’ll read next?

Now that’s a good question. I had originally planned to start reading The Lord of the Rings trilogy after finishing The Hobbit, so I will probably do that. I’ve also really wanted to read The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Attwood, since there has been a lot of buzz with the new miniseries coming out. It’s been on my TBR for ages, but I’ve never actually read it. Maybe that should change. 🙂

WWW Wednesday – January 4th, 2016

WWW NewBack on track now!

WWW Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Sam at Taking On A World of Words. Three questions, three answers. Go!

What are you currently reading?

the-hobbitAs I said in my last post yesterday (or today – whatever), I am currently reading The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien. I am currently almost halfway through it. As a side note, I went on GoodReads to try and find an edition with the same cover art as my copy and boy-oh-boy does this one have a lot of covers! It’s kind of crazy.

What did you recently finish reading?

If I StayThe very last thing I finished was a re-read of If I Stay by Gayle Forman. Such a beautiful book. I remember the first time I read it, I got so lost in it that I read it almost in one sitting (I think I got up to get food or something, but that was it). I basically did it the same way this time too. I also wrote a review of this a while back, which you can find here.

youre-never-weird-on-the-internetI also read You’re Never Weird on the Internet (almost) by Felicia Day. I absolutely adore her! This is a fun, quirky memoir that also tackles some pretty serious stuff, like her issues with anxiety and depression, or her experiences with Gamergate. I will have to write a proper review on this one at some point, but for now I will just recommend that you watch The Guild so that you will understand why I love her.

What do you think you’ll read next?

the-plantationI’ve mentioned before that I enjoy reading along with the GoodReads Seasonal Reading Challenge. It forces me to be more creative with my reading instead of just re-reading the same stuff over and over (which I am very apt to do – I want to re-read Harry Potter so bad right now!). So the next thing I will read, for one of their goals, is The Plantation by Stella Samiotou-Fitzsimons. I got this one for free on Book Bub and don’t know much about it, so it should be interesting.

There are my answers for this week! Please let me know what you are reading so I can add even more books to my never-ending TBR mountain!
