#WWW Wednesday – 21 September, 2016

It’s time for WWW Wednesday! This is a blog hop hosted by Sam over at A World Of Words. Link up with us by commenting on Sam’s post for today, and just answer the three questions.

wwwwednesday

nameofthewindcoverWhat have you recently finished reading?

As promised, I read The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss while I was on holidays. It was a very satisfying book, in spite of a few small niggles I had (mostly about characterisation, as the world-building was pretty perfect). You can read my full review here.

Iwhereaminowcover also read Where Am I Now?: True Stories of Girlhood and Accidental Fame by Mara Wilson, who you might know as the girl who was in such movies and Matilda and Mrs Doubtfire in the early 90s. I tweeted that I was reading it and she liked my tweet and I had a total fangirl moment. She’s a great writer; I recommend this to everyone. My review will go up on Friday.

What are you currently reading?

therookcoverI’m back to reading The Rook by Daniel O’Malley, which to be honest I’m a little bored with, but I want to see it through because so many people highly recommended it to me, and maybe it will pick up a bit.

What do you think you’ll read next?

illkeptoathcoverI still haven’t properly started the ARC I have of The Ill-Kept Oath by C. C. Aune and it came out on September 27, so I should probably get onto that. After that, I also have ARCs of Immortal Writers by Jill Bowers and The Infinity of Me and You by J. Q. Coyle, both of which are released in the first week of November. I’m not worried about not getting them handed in on time. I just handed in my last assignment for the year, so now I have all the reading time in the world! (Except for the time when I need to write).

Let me know if you’ve any thoughts on any of these! 🙂

See you all later!

    Hmm, sorry to hear you’re not enjoying the Rook. I heard such great things about it I bought it a couple of weeks ago but haven’t had a chance to read yet.

    I have read the Immortal Writers and kind of enjoyed it but had a few niggles. Hopefully you’ll fare better.

      I think it’s mostly style issues for me. It’s quite clever, but I’m just not quite digging it. I’d be interested to hear your thoughts when you get around to it.

      I read a few reviews of Immortal Writers and there were a few with similar thoughts to you. Fingers crossed.

    Welcome back from your holiday!

    I’m glad you enjoyed The Name of the Wind. Like you, I’m waiting until there’s a publication date for book 3 before tracking down book 2. Also, I feel like it’s the sort of series you need to take a break between books. It wasn’t hard to read, but it was slightly draining… I’m not sure I can explain why!! 🙂

    I am the opposite! My first assignment of the year is due in a couple of weeks and then I will be doing assignments constantly! So I know my reading time is about to go down! The Name of the Wind looks like something I would enjoy – will have to check out your review!
    Here’s my WWW Wednesday

      I think my issue is I’m finding The Rook a bit gimmicky – it worked for a while but now it’s continuing in the same style and the novelty has worn off a bit. But yes, Name of the Wind was very awesome. 😀

      She’s very honest about what it was like and how much she really understood about being famous and the expectations of being “cute” and the responsibility that comes with being such a big part of so many childhoods. I think you would definitely enjoy it.
