WWW Wednesdays is a weekly meme that is hosted by Taking on a World of Words. The “rules” are simple – answer the 3 questions below:

1. What are you currently reading?

I’m currently reading Finders Keepers by Stephen King, as well as The Mayor of Casterbridge by Thomas Hardy; if you’ve been following my other WWW posts you’d know I’ve been planning to read this particular Hardy book since February. I only have two books on the go at the minute, which is allowing me to get through both books at an excellent pace.

2. What did you recently finish reading?

If I remember rightly, I finished reading two reads: Lady Chatterley’s Lover by D.H. Lawrence, 11.22.63 by Stephen King. However, I’m sorry to say I’ve also given up on not one, but two books. I’ve abandoned To The Lighthouse by Woolf (in fact, I’m not at all sorry for giving up on this one, it was a disastrous book for me to try and get into) as well as The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer. Whilst I had read some the stories and found them amusing, I just wasn’t engaged enough to want to commit top reading the entire thing just yet.

3. What do you think you’ll read next?

I honestly don’t know – at present I don’t have a burning desire for any other books in particular, but I’m sure that’s bound to change.

 What are you currently reading?

      1. It’s hard to say just yet as the beginning is a bit of a mystery. Basic premise is that ten strangers find themselves mystically transported to some sort of game preserve. From what I’m reading so far it seems they’ll have to work their way out of there but it’s too early to be sure. It has a very Stephen King Langoliers feel.

  1. I’ve been thinking about reading Chatterley for a while just because of the hype around it to this day. How was it? Happy reading and thanks for participating in WWW Wednesday!

    1. I only read the first few stories, and they were witty and rhymed (in my edition) but I just didn’t feel as attached to it as the rest of my reads. My reading Chaucer stemmed from my university course reading, which I think has convinced my brain not to enjoy it as much as a “regular” book because it was originally for study.

      1. It is about a young girl growing up in the 80’s who has just lost her uncle to AIDS. The understanding of AIDS in the 80’s was very little so dealing her uncle dying is really hard in her. Not to mention its kind of embarrassing for her. There is only one way for her to cope with it and that is by confiding in her uncle boyfriend who is also dying of AIDS.

  2. Wow you’re reading both books at the same time, I really couldn’t handle that.. although it helps if they’re really different genres and scenes. If I would read two police procedurals I would probably mix up more easily. I’ve got a sense you always like to do things in pairs, seeing you also gave up on two ;-). Nice reads you’ve got going !
