What Am I Reading? – WWW

I read one book and now I’m stuck in the midst of a reread. I don’t mind this in the slightest.

The WWW Wednesday challenge very simply involves answering three questions about your reading.

What are you currently reading?

Ship of Magic: Robin Hobb: Book 1 (The Liveship Traders): Amazon.co.uk:  Hobb, Robin: 9780008117450: Books

Ship of Magic – Robin Hobb

As with all series in this universe, I have the complete sets on kindle, which means I’m reading three (already very long) books as one, pretty much. But it’s difficult to read any book by Robin Hobb without reading all the sequels immediately!

Anyway, I’m currently on the first of The Liveship Traders trilogy which I’ve only read once, and I’m looking forward to seeing it with fresher (and older) eyes.

What have you recently finished?

Assassin's Quest (The Farseer Trilogy - Book 3): 3/3: Amazon.co.uk: Hobb,  Robin: 9780006480112: Books
This is quite an old version of the cover but at least it’s not the hideously terrible US one

Assassin’s Quest – Robin Hobb

I did say I’m stuck in a rereading blitz, didn’t I? I really went immediately from the last of The Farseer Trilogy into the next. I highly recommend, if I’m not obvious enough!

What are you going to read next?

Iron Widow: Instant New York Times No.1 Bestseller : Zhao, Xiran Jay:  Amazon.co.uk: Books

Iron Widow – Xiran Jay Zhao

Just for a change, I’ve stuck a different book here. I currently have this on loan (and if anyone has borrowed this book from the library, you’ll know the waiting list is immense), so I’m under a bit of pressure to read it immediately.

Are you a fan of rereads? What are you reading at the moment?

  1. I reread sometimes. Last year, I reread Pride and Prejudice, Wuthering Heights, Frankenstein, and Kafka’s The Metamorphosis, all books I’d read multiple times before. I think when a book is really good, you want to go back to it and read it again to see if you notice anything new or if the book hits a little different this time around.

    • Oh those sound like great books to reread! I really want to read Wuthering Heights again, because I don’t remember much of what I thought the first time around. I wonder if I’d still enjoy it?

      I think you’re exactly right – noticing new things on a reread makes the story even better.
