It’s Monday! What Are You Reading is a weekly meme hosted by BookJourney. We share what we read last week and what we plan on reading this week!
Last week was busy with Birthdays of loved ones and other really fun and exciting stuff. I did read quite a lot, but I didn’t finish many books. I was reading five books at a time. So the plan for this week: Finish some of those books I started.
So, what else is new? Well, since you asked – I got a Kindle Touch! Yay! And I really, really love it so far. The Kindle Touch was just released last month here in Germany and I saved up for it and got it a short while after it came out. I thought about getting an eReader before, but what finally convinced me was the touchscreen and the build in mp3-player. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not looking for a tablet, but listening to music while reading is what I often do, especially while I’m on the train or bus, and having just one instead of two devices makes sense to me.
What I read last week
No Exit by Jean-Paul Sartre – I read this while I was on the train to visit my mom on her birthday and on my way back. It’s a play and it deals with people define themselves through relationships with others and how bad relationships can be your personal hell. I really liked it a lot, it’s thought-provoking and I really liked the way the themes was presented. I’m really into these kind of plays and will read – and hopefully someday see – more of those! I gave No Exit 4 out of 5 stars.
Warrior Women Of The Wastelands by Carlton Mellick III – I know, I know. This title sounds just awesome. And it was. This is the first book I read in the bizarro fiction genre and I really liked it a lot. Beware – this is not for everyone. It’s bloody, it’s crazy, it’s weird, it’s sick. A lot. And I mean that. You have been warned. You’re not put off? Then give it a try. I loved it. I will read more books of that genre. Review to come!
What I’m currently reading
As I said, I’m reading a lot at a time currently. So here we go:
Wither by Lauren DeStefano – I’m reading this on my kindle. I read a few reviews of this now and they made this sound really really good. I’m a little more than half way through now, and I like it. I would have finished it my now, but Warrior Wolf Women Of The Wastelands got in the way.
The Magician’s Guild by Trudi Canavan – I’ve been meaning to read this for a while now. I’ve read one fifth of the book now and it’s really good so far! I really love the writing style. I can’t quite say what it is about this style of writing, but I really enjoy it.
Name Of The Wind by Patrick Rothfuss – Nothing new here. Still not finished. Sad but true.
What I plan on reading this week
I really just plan on finishing some books of those that I’m currently reading. And apart from that, I plan on reading things that I enjoy.
