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 Humble Pie, the autobiography of famous TV chef Gordon Ramsay, and Desperation, yet another Stephen King on my bookshelf I want to read. I haven’t got very far in Desperation yet because I only started it the other day.
2. What did you recently finish reading?
This lets me catch up with the last WWW post, in which I had a giant list of books I wanted to tackle as exam revision.
- Alan Sillitoe,
The Loneliness of the Long-Distance Runner
- Irvine Welsh,
- Thomas Hardy, Tess of the D’Urbervilles
- Charlotte Bronte,
- Jane Austen,
- Arthur Conan Doyle,
selected Sherlock Holmes stories
- D.H. Lawrence,
selected short stories
I gave up on Tess of the D’Urbervilles (by which I mean, I never re-read it at all and just watched the very good BBC adaptation instead). I finally finished Shooting History by Jon Snow, and it was such a tough autobiography to get through. Certain parts were incredibly dense and, dare I say it, dull.
I also read Devil In The Countryside and Being Simon Haines – both of which new books by new authors I was given to review, as well as Lost In A Good Book by Jasper Fforde – the second in the Thursday Next series, following on from The Eyre Affair.
3. What do you think you’ll read next?
Lots of books, hopefully! I have the summer to read now and I have some classic novels on my list, as well as some more Stephen King novels.
