“Books burned so easily.”First line in Ash and Quill by Rachel Caine
Hi, guys. Hoping your week is going great so far. As it is Wednesday, you get a little reading update from me through WWW Wednesday. It’s a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words, and it’s meant to give you all a little insight into my reading this week. I’ll answer the 3 questions:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish?
- What do you think you’ll read next
What did you recently finish?
Pumpkinheads by Rainbow Rowell and Faith Erin Hicks. This was my first time reading a graphic novel and it was just delightful. I was surprised that I was able to connect to the characters the way I did for such a short read. I mean, I need Deja in my life. Awesome character.
I know people say graphic novels are quick reads but it still took me by surprise HOW quickly I finished it. A part of me feels like I cheated, you know. That number on my Goodreads challenge went up when I hadn’t done the work required for it. It’s so silly and I’m of course not say that you’re cheating when you’re reading graphic novels. It’s only a personal feeling. I’ll stop rambling.
I technically also finished another book: Words of Radiance (part one) by Brandon Sanderson. Not counting it until I’ve read part two though.
What are you currently reading?
My commute book is Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman which I’m very close to finishing. It’s making me feel so nostalgic because I remember spending so much time reading and learning about these stories in school when I was like 10 years old. That means this isn’t really new to me but it’s still quite fun to read.
Speaking of stories I already know, I’m also reading Peter Pan by J. M. Barrie. Let’s just say I’m enjoying myself. I’m also experiencing a new found love for the live action version from 2003 because I’m realizing how many small details they incorporated from the book. I’m probably watching that again after I finish reading.
What do you think you’ll read next?
I hope to start both Autoboyography by Christina Lauren and The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima.
