WWW Wednesday

26 Jun

W…W…W…Wednesdays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should be Reading. 


  1. What are you currently reading?
  2. What did you recently finish reading?
  3. What do you think you’ll read next?


What are you currently reading?

I’m reading A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving. It’s taking me a while to get through, which usually happens with books that have really long chapters because I find it harder to concentrate on books. It’s enjoyable though and i’m interested in the story line, and it’s written in a digestible way.

A Prayer for Owen Meany - John Irving

What did you recently finish reading? 

I’ve finished two books since my last WWW Wednesday – A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry, and A Judgement in Stone by Ruth Rendell. One I loved, one I didn’t – check out the reviews to find out which was which.

What do you think you’ll read next?

The next book on my list is A Tale of Two Cities  by Charles Dickens – a classic which I haven’t read!

I would love to hear your thoughts on any of these books, although no spoilers please for the ones I haven’t read yet!
