WWW Wednesdays

WWW Wednesdays is a meme hosted at MizB's Should Be Reading. To play along just answer the following questions:
1. What are you currently reading?
2. What did you recently finish reading?
3. What do you think you'll read next?

I am reading too many books together right now. And this week I am going to have a lot of free time on my hands. So I decided to participate in this meme this once!

1. What are you currently reading?

I'm reading John Connolly's The Book of Lost Things - it's the first time I've read anything by him, and I think I'm definitely going to read more books by him. I'm also reading The Killing Floor, the first book in the Jack Reacher series by Lee Child - I had heard a lot about Lee Child before I picked up this book, but it isn't quite up to my expectations yet. I am also reading a book of short stories called Nightmares and Dreamscapes by Stephen King.

2. What did you recently finished reading?

I read Stephen King's Cujo last week. I loved the book, which is no surprise, as it is Stephen King we are talking about. And finally finished reading The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn - I am still ashamed I never read Mark Twain till now. The last book I read was Bossypants by Tina Fey.

3. What do you want to read next?

Now that I am finally completely free for a week, I've decided to read three books that have been sitting in my TBR pile for a long time - Terry Pratchett's Nation, Neil Gaiman's Stardust and Diana Wynne Jones's Cart and Cwidder. That sounds like an awfully ambitious plan, I know, but I am hoping I can at least finish two of the three! I am particularly looking forward to reading Cart and Cwidder - it's been such a long time since I read anything by Diana Wynne Jones!

Thanks for visiting my website!

I'm a big Stephen King fan as well, but I haven't read Cujo.

I have Stardust sitting on my TBR pile as well! I got in a few chapters but then I moved, book got stored at my parents' house, and then my sister stole the book for herself. Sigh! :)

Bossy Pants is certainly different to Mark Twain!! If it makes you feel better I've yet to read a Mark Twain book, but you've inspired me! Will put it on my TBR pile

Oh! Cujo freaked me out at age 16 enough to not look at the breed with same eyes again... LOL! I was quite naive at 16. ;)

Oh and I'm a new follower. :)

I have not read Huck or Mark and really have No plans to either. I know they are classics but I'm really not interested. How was Bossypants?

Clare - I won't call Cujo the best of his books, but it is pretty good! Haha, well my sister doesn't like Neil Gaiman, so that won't be a problem for me!!

Anya Miller - I love the Discworld series!!! But I haven't read much else by Pratchett! Thanks for stopping by :)

The Book Gatherer - Bossypants is SO much fun! You should definitely reading Mark Twain too, though yes, it is totally different!

Niina - Haha, I can understand! I just got over my dog fear a year ago, and now Cujo is going to change that!!

Sidne,The BCR - Bossypants was great! I love Tina Fey. You know, I don't read many classics, but Mark Twain is just awesome, and so funny! Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and taking a look at my books. Your books look interesting and varied. I am a huge SK fan - can't go wrong reading one of his books!

Happy reading!

I love Terry Pratchett. I've only read bits and pieces of the Discworld series, but I'm totally in love. Have you read Good Omens? Pratchett and Neil Gaiman wrote it together -- it's awesome! You should definitely check it out.

Here's my WWW. Happy reading!

Glad to know that you are enjoying 'The Book of Lost Things', Priya. Sorry to know that 'Killing Floor' is not meeting your expectations. I loved that book when I read it. Hope you start liking it as the story progresses. I haven't read 'Cujo' but have seen part of the movie. I found the movie quite scary. Maybe I will read the book and watch the movie on Halloween. Glad to know that you loved your first Mark Twain. Maybe you will like 'The Adventures of Tom Sawyer' too. It was one of my favourite books when I was a child, and I still love it. I haven't read 'Stardust' but I have seen the movie and I loved it. I hope you read the book sometime. Have you seen the movie version?

Vishy said...

Sorry, my last but one sentence should read 'I hope to read the book sometime' :)

Priya said...

Susan - Thanks for stopping by! I agree, am a big SK fan too!! :)

Couchpotatocritic - Good Omens is only the best book ever!! Gaiman and Pratchett together can't go wrong. Thanks for stopping by!

Vishy - I liked the book Killing Floor, but it is a bit you know, predictable and I also find it a bit like a movie script! I don't know, I am not done yet! I have to read the Adventures of Tom Sawyer, yes, but I am reading more essays and short stories by Twain for the time being. I haven't seen the Stardust movie, but it's impossible for me to not love a Neil Gaiman novel! You should read it too :)

I don't think I'll be reading Cujo, simply because I don't like scary books. Stephen King is amazing, but his books are too creepy for my taste.

Also, I’m a new follower—wonderful blog! Stop by my blog and follow me too? :) http://rachelbrookswrites.blogspot.com/
