I’m quite pleased that the books I’m reading have actually changed since last month. I have not had a lot of time for reading, lately, but clearly things aren’t too dire!
The WWW Wednesday challenge is hosted at Taking on a World of Words, and very simply involves answering three questions about your reading.
What are you currently reading?
Mansfield Park – Jane Austen
Previous readers of my WWW’s rejoice: I’m finally reading this book! It’s great so far. I have not yet become fully engrossed, but I’m confident that will happen, as with all Austen books, and I’m already very amused by the characters.
What have you recently finished?
The Vanishing Half – Brit Bennet
I planned to start reading this book only the other week, as it’s one of the novels shortlisted for the Women’s Prize for Fiction. And then I started reading and literally couldn’t stop. Clearly I should listen when everyone talks about what an excellent book this is.
It’s good!! It’s such an easy read, too; the writing just flows from one character to the next and it feels seamless.
What are you going to read next?
Shadow and Bone – Leigh Bardugo
I mentioned this in my post about fantasy in film, but now that Shadow & Bone is out on Netflix, I’m finally getting around to reading the Grishaverse. I loved Six of Crows so much though, I’m sceptical I have a spot on my #faves list for these characters.
