WWW Wednesday

WWW Wednesdays is a weekly meme hosted over at Should Be Reading…it just takes a few minutes: to play along, just answer the following three questions…

What are you currently reading?

What did you recently finish reading?

What do you think you’ll read next?
——————————————————–

What are you currently reading?

I started this retelling of Pride and Prejudice on Monday night and am already 50% done. Lots of fun, nicely written with good characters that are ‘shades of Austen’ rather than carbon copies. It’s good easy reading and would definitely suit people looking for some light, summer reading – it’s girlie enough (you’d probably guess from the cover) and expect plenty of boy talk, gossip and fun.

What did you recently finish reading?
I expected more from this, I have to say. The idea is strong and the writing is good enough, however the execution in plot and characters I found to be a bit lacking. I’d say 3* being kind. (Review is here if you’d like to hear more). I cannot imagine what happens in the subsequent books having found very little in this one (there’s something like eight books!)
What do you think you’ll read next?
I’m thinking either another ‘Angel’ book to get me along on the Heavenly Challenge or a Vampire one for the Olympic Goodreads Challenge (I’m all about the challenges this summer!) They’re quite good as they’re helping me tackle my burgeoning TBR pile. The two most likely candidates are below – perhaps I’ll go for ReVamped first: good reviews, lovely author and it’s a ‘Canadian’ book and so I’ll get a double-whammy reading it in July for Marie Landry’s Canadian Month! (It all depends on how quick I get through Fall For You).

    Interesting challenges you’re doing 🙂 Thanks for dropping by my WWW 🙂

  2. I haven’t heard of those challenges that you mentioned…but will have to look for them next year, they sound like they could be fun. Fall For You also sounds good. I love Pride and Prejudice so its always fun to see how others interpret that story.

    My WWW Wednesday is here.

  3. Cool art for those last two books.

    Here’s my WWW Wednesdays.

  4. Those darned “tbr” lists usually just keep growing! My list is at http://katybrandes.wordpress.com/2012/06/27/www-wednesdays-june-27/.

    last two are definitely not my kinda reads. i am going to write down the others. happy reading. http:/sidnereading.blogspot.com

  6. I agree with you – I expected a lot more from the Goddess Test – it had such a good premise! By any chance, have you read Everneath? I think that was a much better retelling of the tale of Persephone.
