WWW Wednesday (9)

And here we are again for another WWW Wednesday, my favorite meme. (I have given up explaining why I don't post here as much as I really wish I could, school and life have been crazy, and with NaNoWriMo having started Novemeber first, I've barely had time to sleep).

So WWW Wednesday is hosted by MizB at Should be Reading and she asks that you answer 3 questions:
  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you'll read next?

Still way too many things, as always.

Read: (I'm doing since my last WWW Wednesday post, there'a lot because I listened to a bunch of Doctor Who audio books so I'm going to just list them this time, adding a link to a review if I have one up).

  • This Books Is Not Good For You (Secret #3) by Pseudonymous Bosch (5/5)
  • This Isn't What It Looks Like (Secret #4) by Pseudonymous Bosch (5/5)
  • The Light Fantastic (Discworld #2) by Terry Pratchett (5/5)
  • Preludes and Nocturnes (Sandman Vol 1) by Neil Gaiman (author) (5/5)
  • Equal Rites (Discworld #3) by Terry Pratchett (5/5)
  • Amulet, Book 1: The Stonekeeper by Kazu Kibuishi (4/5)
  • Doctor Who: Dead Air (audio) by James Goss (5/5)
  • Doctor Who: The Last Voyage (audio) by Dan Abnett (4/5)
  • Spiderwick Vol 1 (audio) by Holly Black
  • Doctor Who: The Hounds of Artemis (audio) by James Goss (3/5)
  • Doctor Who: The Jade Pyramid (audio) by Martin Day (3/5)
  • Solid (Solid #1) by Shelly Workinger
  • Doctor Who: The Empty House (audio) bySimon Guerrier (5/5)
  • Doctor Who: The Day of the Troll (audio) by Simon Messingham (4/5)
  • Doctor Who: The Forever Trap (audio) by Dan Abnett (5/5)
  • Doctor Who: The Runaway Train (audio) by Oli Smith (4/5)

First, to address how I rated the audio books, mostly on the actual story. I mean, the narration was really good in all of them, the weird voices in Spiderwick had me almost wanting to tune out or skip those parts, they were just so gratting sometimes. I don't know why.

The Doctor Who ones rated 5/5 were my favorites, they were good for different reasons. For example, The Empty House was so short, but I actually really liked the story that happened in that time, it was really interesting.

Also, Sandman comic, I've started reading the 2nd, but it's been put on hold for now. And people say that the 1st one isn't the strongest, but I still loved it. A lot. I thought it was fantastic and original and creepy and I truly loved it, I wish I could give it more then 5/5.

To-Read Next:
I have a reading pile that could probably wrap around the world and I tend to go by mood, trying not to promise to read too many books (school not counting) because reading for me is something I love to do and I can't force myself to read. I have done it, though, when I'm in a slump and I have reading to get done, and I feel like I've been in a 3 month slump and that's what I've kind of been doing.

Anyway, I've been really dying to read Paradise Lost, if you're wondering about classics, and I have some books to work to for school it would be good to do, too.

Also, during Novemember, I tend not to get any reading done. I wish too and I hope for it, but it's so busy I never really get around to it. So what are YOU reading is the real question? Any books that you've read lately that I need to read immediately, I'd love to hear about them!

I hope your week is lovely and hopefully I'll see you here before December. If you're doing NaNoWriMo, too, I wish you the best of luck. (If you want to check out my progress, my writing blog resides here).
