WWW Wednesday [35]

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Books to do a little reading plan update.

The Three Ws are:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

Currently Reading:

   

I read Brave New World back in high school, and remember it not being a particularly good read, but definitely thought provoking. This time, I’m feeling a lot more horror than I remember feeling last time. It’s still thought provoking. Definitely disturbing. I laugh a little at the “technology,” but hey, it was written in the 30’s.

I’m really just getting into Interview With the Vampire, so I don’t have much to say yet. Not really feeling the interviewer interrupting all the time.

Recently Finished:

     

I absolutely LOVED Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking! As an introvert, I related to so much of what was written about, and even from just the introduction, it made me feel validated as a person. Always great. I definitely recommend it!

I finally finished Under the Dome! I think I started this one before my hiatus (my loan expired)… I mean, it’s pretty Stephen King. Horrible stuff happens, and it’s told in pretty gruesome detail. The ending was pretty anticlimactic, but I guess I can’t think of anything that would have been better.

Spinning Silver was great! I absolutely loved the lady power in this one. The only things that kept it from five stars was I got kind of bored during some of the daily life scenes, and some of the POVs were really rambley, which I understand is actually really accurate to real thoughts, but I don’t love reading.

Up Next:

     

More Stephen King! I feel like I’ve gotten into his books all out of order. I recently finished The Wolves of Calla, and according to other people on Goodreads it spoils the end of ‘Salem’s Lot. Luckily I don’t remember anything other than the obvious character surviving, so Imma read it! (Okay, so Google has I’ma in the dictionary. Is it actually a real word?!)

If I manage to get through ‘Salem’s Lot, I’m going to try to finish Waking Gods finally. This is another one that my loan ran out halfway through. 😦

And after Brave New World, I think I’ll read Telegraph Avenue. Or maybe not. Idk.


What about you? What are you reading? What have you recently finished? What’s up next?
