WWW Wednesdays is a meme hosted by Should Be Reading that asks three questions:
What are you currently reading???
At the end of last week my school librarian recommended All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr to me, and so far I am a little over half way through it. OH MY GOODNESS, THIS BOOK IS AMAZING. I can already tell that it’s going to be one of the best books I’ve read this year.
I’m also still reading Harry Potter y la cámara secreta by J.K. Rowling, (which is the Spanish translation of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets) and listening to Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn.
What did you recently finish reading???
Over the weekend I finished reading 1776 by David McCullough, which I really enjoyed. I find that time period in American history really interesting to begin with, but the narrative style of McCullough’s writing made history come to life even more for me.
Yesterday my I finished reading the play Antigone by Sophocles with my AP English class. We recently read Oedipus Rex, and this play is a continuation of that story. I normally feel sort of lukewarm about plays, but I liked this one a lot. Antigone is such a great feminist character, and it makes you wonder whether or not Sophocles really felt that women should have more independence or if he was merely commenting on the oppressive society of the time.
What do you think you’ll read next???
I’ve been getting a flood of recommendations lately from friends and librarians at school and work, so I have quite a list of possible books to read next! Two of them are Life After Life by Kate Atkinson and The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. I’ll probably start reading one of those two in the next few days!
What are your answers to these questions? Let me know in the comments section below!
Happy holidays, everyone!!! 🙂
