WWW Wednesday meme is by hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Wordsand is a great way to do a weekly update on what you’ve been reading and what you have planned.
To take part all you have to do is answer the following three questions:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
I am currently read Some Kind of Wonderful by Giovanna Fletcher. I have fallen into a trap again where I started reading a book at the end of 2017 and finishing at the start of 2018. I will be counting this as the first book I’ve read in 2018.
This has been a slow start for me which does tend to happen when I read the first 15% of a book. Also I haven’t been in the mood to read since I started back work but today, I have read 2 chapters in two weeks. Hopefully I get back into a reading habit soon.
I have recently finished reading A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. My goal for the year ahead is to read at least 4 classics. It’s not a genre I have read or have a lot of interest in but I want to give it a chance.
Unfortunately I didn’t enjoy the book and ended up giving it 2 stars. There were parts of it I did enjoy and other times I didn’t understand the reason behind things. I have seen the film once and found it interesting. I was hoping to get more out of the book but I prefer the film.
I have many reasons for picking up this book next.
Firstly it has been sitting on mybookshelf for a year. Secondly it will be a good read to kick start my Beat the Backlist challenge. Finally it is coming up to a year that I read the first book and if I don’t read it soon I may not end up carrying on with the series.
