WWW Wednesdays: 8th February 2017

I managed to finally finish Fates & Furies a couple of days ago and I’m looking forward to another week of reading. I’ve read 6 books so far in 2017, so I’m well on my way to completing my goal of 50 books this year!

WWW is hosted by Taking on the World of Words. Each Wednesday book enthusiasts share their read by answering three questions:

The Three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

I just opened the first page of Eileen by Ottessa Moshfegh this morning, so I haven’t had a chance to get to grips with it yet but I’m excited to read it. I’ve been meaning to for a while.

Fates & Furies by Lauren Groff. I did have a hard time getting into this book, but I’m glad I did. It’s split into two sections, Fates told from Lancelot’s perspective and Furies told from his wife, Mathilde’s. Their marriage takes on an almost mythic form, but they both have entirely different interpretation of their relationship. It seems that through twenty years of marriage, they are still strangers. It was such a brilliant read.

What do you think you’ll read next?

I’m thinking of reading Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell. I’ve read a couple of her

novels and they’ve all been really enjoyable so I’m expecting this to be another good read.
