It was Felling night, and the usual crowd had gathered at the Waystone Inn.First line in The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
Hi, guys. I hope you’re all doing great. Today I’m using WWW Wednesday to give you a reading update. WWW Wednesday 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?
Absolutely nothing. Here’s a cute dog instead:
What are you currently reading?
I’m still working on the beast called The Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss because for all of my efforts, I’m only 36% in. There has been a shift in the story which I’m grateful for. Not that it has gotten incredibly exciting, but at least we’re doing something new. Since last week’s update, I’ve experienced being immensely frustrated with Kvothe as a storyteller a couple of times. Whenever we seem to be getting close to some exciting events, we jump forward and barely dedicate a page to those events. WHAT?!? We have to hear about every single menial thing of his everyday life, and when something finally happens, HE SKIPS IT?? I’m sorry, I just don’t understand. But well, the writing is still great so it isn’t difficult for me to continue reading. But it’s going very slowly.
The second big book of the week is still Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, but I only have about 150 pages left of that one. Those are going to go by quickly, I expect.
What do you think you’ll read next?
It’s crazy, but I finally got The Shadow Rising from the library! The timing is horrible because I’m really not feeling another huge book right now. But I’m going to start it and see how it goes.
