WWW Wednesday 8

This meme/link-up is hosted by Taking on a World of Words

What are you currently reading?
A friend and I are doing a long-distance book club, and our second book is Tender is the Night by F. Scott Fitzgerald

What did you recently finish reading?
Since my last WWW (and finals week, and one-week sembreak), I've read seven books. Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan and Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty were both fast-paced, gossipy books that were really entertaining reads. My Wish List by Gregoire Delacourt was about a woman who won the lottery and couldn't decide how to spend her winnings, and it really got me thinking. The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness was a little boring, but I felt I had to finish it because I'd already committed to it. For our LDBC, our first book was Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro, which has the least interesting narrator I've ever encountered, but the Norfolk parts were lovely. More interesting reads were The Thief and The Queen of Attolia by Megan Whalen Turner. They're full of twists I never saw coming, and I loved how the myths/literature of one culture was another culture's actual religion/reality.
What do you think you'll read next?
I plan on reading the next book in the series, The King of Attolia by Megan Whalen Turner. 


  1. One of my book clubs read Never Let Me Go and we couldn't wait to let it go. Happy reading!

  2. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness. It's on my TBR and I've read mixed reviews about it. I guess you're on the negative side of it.

    And thanks for visiting my WWW! :)

  3. I really loved Big Little Lies. My Wish List sounds like fun. Enjoy! Here's MY WWW POST

  4. Sounds like you didn't enjoy 'Never Let Me Go.' I'm sorry to hear that as it's a favorite of mine. I loved how Ishiguro messed with the reader's head and let on so slowly why the children lived in Hailsham. Happy reading and thanks for participating in WWW Wednesday!
