“A history of the Six Duchies is of necessity a history of its ruling family, the Farseers.”First line in Assassin’s Apprentice by Robin Hobb
Hi, guys. Hope you’re all doing well. 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?
I finished Assassin’s Apprentice by Robin Hobb, and it was sooo good! So good that I had to write my review for it immediately so that one is already up. And since it’s such a popular book, I’ve included some of my spoilery thoughts for those of you who’ve already read it.
What are you currently reading?
Well, I’ve picked up the final book in The Remnant Chronicles, The Beauty of Darkness by Mary E. Pearson mainly because I want to know how it ends. I’m halfway through at the moment and already regretting my decision because everything is annoying. From Lia acting like a spoiled brat and calling it her “strengths” to every character turning into drama queens every time there is the slightest issue. Issues that often have very simple solutions, too. But I’ve set myself this task and I’m going to see it through, hopefully in the next couple of days.
Speaking of drama queens, I’m also reading Othello by William Shakespeare. I am not well-versed in Shakespeare, so I don’t have much to say. I’m just taking it in and enjoying the theatricality of it all. Currently, I’m almost done with Act II, and my main takeaway is that Iago has some serious issues, but he’s going about solving them all wrong.
What do you think you’ll read next?
I’m very much in the mood for some shorter books, so I kinda want to spend the rest of February on those as much as possible. The first one is going to be Lost Boy by Christina Henry. Since I read Peter Pan last year, I’ve really been wanting to read some of the retellings as well, and this one just screams dark fairy tale.
