This meme is hosted by Sam over at Taking on a World of Words. All you have to do is answer the following three questions in a post and then put a link to that post in the Comments over at Taking on a World of Words.
The questions are:
1. What are you currently reading?
2. What did you recently finish reading?
3. What do you think you’ll read next?
Currently Reading –
So if you haven’t been reading my posts lately you may have missed that I’ve been in a reading slump lately. I have no idea why. I’ve been reading some pretty good books but I’m still in a slump. So I decided to pick up the next book in my re-read of the Harry Potter series.
I started my latest re-read of the Harry Potter series earlier this year. I think. I haven’t re-read these books in a couple of years according to Goodreads. Which is weird. I usually try to read them once a year. Anyway, I’m up to Goblet of Fire and I can read my new editions too. I put my original copies away in a box because they are getting old and I needed the shelf space. What gets you out of a reading slump?
Recently Finished –
So I didn’t get to post my WWW Wednesday last week because my laptop decided to upgrade Windows and it took half a day so when it had finally finished I just couldn’t be bothered with it. But luckily for me with my reading slump I haven’t actually read that much in the last two weeks so this isn’t going to be a long post.
Anyway, I’ve finally finished Wonder Woman: Warbringer. It took me a lot longer than I thought it would but it wasn’t the books fault. I really enjoyed Warbringer. It was just my slump or the mood I’m in. I don’t really know. But I will hopefully be reviewing this soon. If you love Wonder Woman then you should definitely pick up a copy. This is the first book in the DC Icons series. I think the next book is a young Batman written by Marie Lu and comes out next year.
The other book I managed to read in the last two weeks was I Am Traitor. I was really looking forward to this because I love alien invasions but it was just okay. I’m not sure if there’s going to be a sequel but I don’t think I’ll be picking it up if there is.
I’ll be posting a full review of this soon-ish so I don’t really want to go into it too much here but I found some of the characters kind of annoying and I just wasn’t really invested in the humans or their story. Or the aliens either. It was just a little weird.
Reading Next –
I’m thinking my next read will be Because You Love to Hate Me. I’ve wanted to read this ever since I first heard about it. I love retellings and even though I’m not into villains I’m still interested in reading this book. But if there’s some retelling of Snape and how he’s misunderstood you can forget about it. There will be no changing my mind about him.
See, even though I didn’t post do one of these for a week I didn’t manage to read very much. If you have any tips about how to get out of reading slumps then leave me a comment.
