#WWW Wednesday – 24 May 2017

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

What have you recently finished reading?

I finished On Writing by Stephen King, though I wasn’t really that into it, to be honest. Long story short, I’m not really a King fan or a craft book fan and so I was destined to never really like this one. My review will go up on Friday with more detail.

I have posted two reviews this week, Heart of Brass by Felicity Banks, and The Devil’s Prayer by Luke Gracias. Both were 3* reads for me.

What are you currently reading?

“I don’t like vampires,” she says, then proceeds to read Dracula by Bram Stoker (which continues to be enjoyable, unlike most classics I try to read) and listen to Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice on audio concurrently. The guy who narrates this has the most soothing voice! It’s kind of long but I’m at about 20% going to have a few solitary car trips over the next couple of weeks so I should get through it then.

I have just today started Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder. I’ve been really looking forward to starting this series, but as often happens with books I own, I kept putting it aside for library books, ARCs, etc. If nothing else, the covers on these editions are really stunning, but I’ve flown through the first quarter with no trouble today and plan on reading more before bed.

What do you think you’ll read next?

I still have The Dalai Lama’s Cat by David Michie from the library, so I should probably pick that up before too long. But at the same time, if I want to continue the Study series straight away, I’ll do that.

What are you reading this week? 🙂

    I keep saying I’m fed up with vampire books then end up really enjoying them. I remember reading all of Anne Rice’s books a long time ago and absolutely loving them so I hope you enjoy.

      Yes, I’ve been doing the Beat the Backlist challenge with a specific goal of reading books I own for the same reasons. I’m pretty up-to-date with my ARCs now so I can start focusing more on these.

    Sorry to hear you weren’t a fan of On Writing! I love King in general and I enjoyed learning more about his approach to the craft 🙂
    Also, I love Poison Study, though the rest of her books sort of don’t hit home as well. I hope you enjoy it.

    Happy Reading 😀

      To be fair, the only other King books I’ve read have not been any of his big hits and it’s possible I’ve just been reading the wrong ones but I have so much else to read that getting to Carrie or The Shining is pretty low on my priority list 😛

      Yeah, I’ve seen a lot of reviews to that effect. I have the first, third and fourth books and the second one is at the library, so I’ll probably read the four and then see how I’m going.
