WWW Wednesday

WWW Wednesday – October 21th 2020

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.

  1. I very much approve of the cute dog 😁 And best of luck with all your big books!
    Also – can I just say THANK YOU for pushing me to read the Winternight trilogy? I just finished The Girl in the Tower and I literally can’t stop reading… I love Vasya and Morozko 😊 I want a horse like Solovey! And my Russian knowledge is proving really useful! I am so obsessed. Why didn’t I read these sooner?

    1. I’m so happy that you’re loving it!! And yes, Vasya and Morozko’s chemistry is everything. I will never get over how perfect those characters are. I don’t know all that much about Russia myself, but it’s great to hear that you’re loving that part as well. I was more in learning-mode when I was reading it, but that was also great πŸ˜€ Can’t wait to hear your thoughts after the last book!

      1. Well, you won’t have to wait long – I spent all day reading and just finished it 😁 I’ll probably be posting a series review sometime next week, but let’s just say that I think the third book is probably my favorite! Though I will never forgive Katherine Arden for that huge Solovey twist – why did I spend all morning bawling my eyes out for nothing??

      2. You read fast! Lol and I was thinking about that Solovey thing when you said you loved him and wondered how you were going to react πŸ˜„ But it’s brutal. I also “hated” Arden for a long time. I’m so excited to read your review!
