To play along, just answer the following three questions:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you'll read next?
I am currently reading 'Vanity Fair' by William Thackeray and I am about a third through. I never really wanted to read this book, but I felt I should. I am really happy I started it though because I am really enjoying it.
Thackeray is an intrusive author, which means he is constantly commenting on his characters, the plot and how it stands in comparison to literature. I am absolutely loving it. His comments are funny, the characters are great and he very gently mocks literature.
What really makes em want to finish this novel is that I want to watch the movie desperately. The trailer is so colourful and it has Jonathan Rhys-Meyers in it and I cannot resist that man!
I had taken 'The Glass Palace' to Barcelona, but also packed my Kindle and I could simply not resist! I read 'Wuthering Heights' and 'Pride and Prejudice' and then started 'Vanity Fair'. I really love 'Wuthering Heights' and rereading it was great. Heathcliff is a great character and I think Emily Bronte is an amazing writer. But the highlight for me was probably 'Pride & Prejudice'. This is the second time, only, I have read it. The first time was when I was 14 and I read it within 24 hours and was in love with Jane Austen, Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy ever after. I had a massive, ridiculous grin on my face, every time Darcy talked to Lizzy and felt like a little teenage girl all over again, in a good way. I also finished 'Hideous Kinky' by Esther Freud', hop over here for the review.
I honesty don't really know what I will be reading afterwards. There is a whole selection of books I want to start reading. 'Moby Dick' by Herman Melville, 'Ulysses' by James Joyce,
'Paradise Lost' by John Milton and I want to re-start 'The Picture of Dorian Grey' by Oscar Wilde.
