WWW Wednesdays: 22nd February 2017

I missed last week’s WWW Wednesday post because I didn’t do a whole lot of reading. I’ve gone into a general slump since the resolutions I made in the New Year, but I’m trying to get back on track. I probably would have read more this week, but the family descended over the weekend, so I’ve taken my time. I did finish Eileen though! Hooray!

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 know I intended to read Eleanor & Park after I finished reading Eileen but I’m fickle. I find that once I’ve bought it book and had it around for a couple of months, I’m much more relaxed about when I read it. So I end up pushing it back for other books. I rewatched the first season of Bitten on Netflix last week and remembered that it was based on a series of book’s by Kelley Armstrong. I’ve been craving more fantasy based books recently, so I picked it up from the library. It’s interesting to see how the TV adaptation has moved away from the book.

Eileen. I’ve had it waiting patiently to be read since November. I think part of the reason I was holding off is because it’s signed and to me that’s the equivalent of a Fabrege egg in the book world. It wasn’t a disappointment. After reading Eileen, I’m tempted to get Moshfegh’s short story collection. Her prose is just flawless. The characters have so many idiosyncrasies that they feel three-dimensional. The mundane life of an unremarkable young woman is changed irrevocably by her friendship with a new colleague and the events that follow.

What do you think you’ll read next?

I’m going to say Eleanor & Park (again) knowing that I’ve reserved Diana Athill’s Stet: An Editor’s Life from the library. Wishful thinking, but who knows?

    1. It’d pretty good so far! The TV show is quite different to the book in parts which I kinda like because it’s not all expected, but there are moments where I prefer the TV version to the book. That might be because I watched it first, but I like how the show builds up the tension!

    1. It is so good! I’ve watched the first two seasons (I binged watched) in about a week. I wasn’t ready to let the characters go, and now I’ve found the books I don’t have to! I’m interested to see how the second book compares with season 2!

  1. I’ve never seen or read Bitten, but I love Netflix, so I need to try it out! I’m like you – I hardly ever read a book immediately after getting my hands on it. It’s like I need to admire it for a bit before getting started! LOL! Have a great Wednesday! 😀

    1. I stumbled across it one day and just got sucked in. I kind of like that none of the characters are the quintessential good guys- they all have shades of grey! Exactly! Especially if it’s a pretty book. I think it’s an occupational hazard for a book- lover! Thanks, you too!
