WWW Wednesday – 2nd September 2015

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words. It’s a simple meme where you just have to answer three questions:
– What are you currently reading?
– What did you recently finish reading?
– What do you think you’ll read next?

I think it’s a great way to share my recent reads as my reviews are always way behind what I’m actually reading.

So here’s my answers!

What am I currently reading?FullSizeRender (98)
The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger
This is a short book and a pretty accessible classic but I’m finding it slow going because I’m really not a fan of the protagonist. He’s cocky, a liar and just a bit of an insensitive prat. Hopefully I’ll finish it today though – only have about 60 pages left.

Cinder by Marisa Meyer
I really enjoyed this fairy-tale retelling. It has a cool world, great characters and while I did guess what some of the “big reveals” were going to be half way through the book I still found it a fun and fast read.

Scarlet by Marisa Meyer
I think I’m going to continue with The Lunar Chronicles and therefore #TLCReadAlong with Scarlet. Red Riding Hood is one of my favourite fairy-tales so I’m intrigued at how it’s going to be adapted for this world.

  1. I want to read Catcher in the Rye at some point. We missed it in high school so I feel like I missed out. Happy reading and thanks for participating in WWW Wednesday!

    1. I’ve never read them before but with all the fuss about the next book coming out in December and there being a readalong, I thought it was the perfect time to give them a go – I’m looking forward to where the series goes.
      Thanks for stopping by 🙂

    1. What I think is the last book in the series is out in December so I’ve joined a readalong to get through them all where we’re reading a book a month. It works quite well for me really as I like reading books in a series close together but sometimes I get a bit bored if I read them back to back. Cinder was definitely a quick, fun read so I’m looking forward to the rest of the series.
      Thanks for dropping by and happy reading! 🙂

    1. Haha! It’s my first time reading the Lunar Chronicles and I’m liking it so far, I can definitely see it being a potential favourite of mine.
      Thanks for stopping by and happy reading! 🙂

  2. It’s great that you liked Cinder. Lunar Chronicles are one of my favourite fairy tale retellings. And I haven’t read Catcher in the Rye yet. Can you believe it? Ugh! I just don’t really read many classics. They are just too slow paced for me. Happy reading!

    1. I don’t really read that many classics either but I’ve been making the effort to read a couple this year – classics can certainly be daunting and off-putting. I have to say The Catcher in the Rye is quite an accessible classic though, I mean the language and the way it’s written it could have been easily written in the past few years. That being said I really wasn’t a fan at all.
