WWW Wednesdays: 1st March 2017

Today, isn’t just any old Wednesday, it’s St. David’s Day! It’s a big thing in Wales, and one of the times I miss home the most but I’ve bought myself some daffodils, so that helps!

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!

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?
