Is it really Wednesday? It doesn’t feel like it to me – busy busy few days, feels like it should be Thursday at least. But the calendar says it’s Wednesday, so I’m going to give this meme a shot! It comes from shouldbereading, though I found it through BVC.
All you have to do is answer these questions: What are you currently reading? What did you recently finish reading? and What are you planning to read next? (I totally read those questions in the Monty Python “what is your favourite colour?” voice. I hope you did too.)
- ROYAL ASSASSIN by Robin Hobb – second book in the trilogy; I really liked the first book, so far I’m not in love with the second, but I’ll reserve judgement until I’m finished the trilogy.
- The Complete Works of Shakespeare – I’m on the poetry section
- Dracula by Bram Stoker – started reading this ages ago mostly because I felt I should, and it’s really not grabbing me. We’ll see if I push through (I’m not that far in, maybe it gets better?) or abandon ship.
- Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by JK Rowling – a Christmas/souvenir from her trip to England present to me from my sister 🙂
- Shakespeare’s Sonnets – holy angst batman! Okay love poetry is usually pretty high up the angst scale already, but I was not expecting these levels. For some reason. Not sure why.
plan to read next
- Shakespeare’s The Tempest – can you tell I’m starting to work my way through my Complete Works of Shakespeare? Once I finish the poetry section, I think The Tempest will be the first play I read. Both because it’s the first play in my copy, and because I have a dvd of Stratford’s production starring Christopher Plummer that I haven’t watched yet.
- Le Torrent par Anne Hébert – as mentioned in my 2013 goals post, I want to read more in my 3 non-English languages this year, to make sure I don’t lose them
- Livy book 1 – see above
- Homer, Iliad book 1 – ditto
- as for science fiction/fantasy…. I’m not sure what I want to read when I’m finished Royal Assassin. The top two contenders are HEART SECRET by Robin D. Owens, and THE SERPENT SEA by Martha Wells, which I just got as Christmas and birthday presents respectively from my dad.
How about you?
