WWW Wednesdays: April 8th

WWW Wednesdays tealWWW Wednesdays is a meme hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words that asks three questions:

Xenocide by Orson Scott CardWhat are you currently reading???

At the very beginning of this month I started reading Xenocide by Orson Scott Card. This is the third book in the Ender Quintet and it is incredible. The futuristic world in this series is so complex yet fairly easy to understand, and it deals with issues that are really interesting to think about. If you like aliens, time travel, or science fiction in general then you should definitely give this series a try!

King Lear by ShakespeareWith my AP English class I also started reading King Lear by William Shakespeare. I haven’t read much Shakespeare (just Othello and Romeo and Juliet) but I think I’ll like this play more than the others. It seems like it will have a more meaningful lesson to it, or maybe that’s just because I have such a great English teacher. We’ll see!

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???A Darker Shade final for Irene

I finally got off the holds list for A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab! I read a preview of it from NetGalley (click here to read my review!) but then to read the rest of it I had to put myself on hold for it. It was definitely worth the wait! This is the first book that I’ve read by V.E. Schwab, but I can already tell that it won’t be the last. I can’t wait to write a review of it!

Travelling to Infinity by Jane HawkingWhat do you think you’ll read next???

I recently watched The Theory of Everything, and that got me interested in reading Jane Hawking’s memoir Traveling to Infinity. This couple’s tragic and inspiring story has always fascinated me, but seeing it in the form of a movie has made me want to find out even more about it. This memoir has great reviews, so hopefully it’ll be good!

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

Yours,

HOLLY

  1. Oh, I’m so glad you loved A Darker Shade of Magic! I’m one of the few people who haven’t read it yet. I’ll definitely get to it when our local bookstore gets it in stock. 🙂
