WWW Wednesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words. This meme involves answering three questions. What are you currently reading? What did you recently finish reading? What do you think you’re going to read next?
What are you currently reading?
I’m currently reading The Young Elites by Marie Lu that I started around the same time as The Martian. It’s a lot darker than I expected and I’m enjoying it. The main protagonist is a lot different from the ‘saviour’ types you usually see in YA fantasy and it’s really refreshing. All in all it’s an interesting book and I’m really glad I gave it a try.
What did you recently finish reading?
I finished The Martian today and I really liked it, I gave it 4.5 stars. I found it a bit confusing at times because of the frequent scientific explanations (I’m bad at keeping up with that sort of stuff) but the actual plot made up for it. It’s a very gripping book and once I started it I couldn’t stop reading. I definitely recommend giving it a chance if you’ve had any doubts and I can’t wait to see how it’s translated to film.
What do you think you’re going to read next?
Definitely Royal Assassin by Robin Hobb, it arrived today and I’ve been wanting to read it since I finished Assassin’s Apprentice last week. Assassin’s Apprentice left off on a really interesting note and I can’t wait to see how Fitz progresses and how his story develops after the events in the last book. I’m so excited to carry on with this series, it’s definitely one of my new favourites.
