WWW Wednesdays: January 14th

WWW WednesdaysWWW Wednesdays is a meme hosted by Should Be Reading that asks three questions:

What are you currently reading???

wuthering heights coverI’m still reading Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte. I’m about half way through it and I really like it so far. Everything is so dramatic and the characters are all so crazy- it’s like reading a soap opera!

great expectations coverI just started Great Expectations by Charles Dickens with my AP English class the other day, and I’m really excited about it. I’ve been wanting to read this one ever since I read A Tale of Two Cities over the summer for my assigned reading, and I’m really happy that my teacher chose to read it as a class.

I’m also still reading Harry Potter y la cámara secreta by J.K. Rowling (the Spanish translation of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets).

What did you recently finish reading???

gone girl coverI FINALLY finished Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn!!! It’s taken me forever to read this book, mostly because I started off listening to the audio book version. The audio book I was listening to is about 19 hours long, and I got about 2/3 of the way through it and just couldn’t take it anymore. My library’s copy came in at a convenient time, and I just couldn’t resist snatching it up and reading the rest of it. I never expected this book to go in the directions it went, and I really enjoyed the twists and turns that it had. A review will be up soon!

What do you think you’ll read next???

catcher in the rye coverI’m looking forward to doing some rereading of The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger in the near future with one of my friends. I read it in my freshman year English class but I don’t think I got a lot out of it. I’m really interested to see how I like it the second time around.

What are your answers to these questions? Let me know in the comments section below!

Yours,

HOLLY

  1. I’ve read all the books you mentioned here. I’m not a fan but I hope you’ll like them better than I do. Those Penguin editions though. So pretty!
    Happy reading!

    1. Penguin editions make everything better, haha. I’ve been reading my nice edition of the book for AP English at home and the ugly class copy at school. Such a difference! Thanks for commenting! 🙂

  2. You’ve got some great books on here! Wuthering Heights and Great Expectations are two of my favourite classics (with Wuthering Heights being the first classic I ever read and my favourite of all time). I really hope you get on with them. I thought they were very atmospheric with beautiful writing, but with plots that still stand the test of time too. 🙂

    I’ve always wanted to read Catcher in the Rye but I haven’t gotten around to it yet, I’ve heard that it’s a bit of a Marmite book!

    1. I’m really enjoying both so far, especially Great Expectations. Pip is so adorable, and I feel so bad for him! I’m loving the way Dickens writes, more so in this novel than in A Tale of Two Cities, which I read over the summer.

      I definitely agree with you about Catcher in the Rye- some people seem to love it, while others absolutely hate it. When I read it originally I don’t think I put enough effort into actually understanding and appreciating the story, so hopefully it will go better this time around.

      Thanks for commenting! 🙂

  3. Ah Catcher in the Rye is one of my favourites (people either hate it or love it)!
    I’m currently in the middle of The Poisonwood Bible (still), finishing some books on Wattpad, AND looking forward to starting the pile of goodreads giveaways I have unread on my shelf from last summer. o.O

  4. That’s awesome that you are getting to so many classics! I read Great Expectations last year in English; it wasn’t my favorite, although that’s probably due to the endless amount of dialectical journals I had to write and not the story itself. I would love to read Wuthering Heights – maybe in the summer! Happy reading 🙂

    1. I hate when classes ruin books because there’s so much work alongside it! That happened to me a lot earlier in high school, and I really want to go back and read those books to see if I would like them now. Thanks for commenting! 🙂
