It’s wednesday again and time to give an update! If you would like to know more about www wednesday, where you answer three questions every wednesday, it’s hosted by Taking on a World of Words.
What did you recently finish reading?
I started and finished Jade City by Fonda Lee this weekend, it was a good read and kept me turning the pages. Afterwards there were some things that irked me, but in all it was an exciting urban fantasy gang drama. With lots of action. I have a lot of thoughts, which will come in a later review (of course).
I’ve also read “Hver gang du forlater meg” (translation: everytime you leave me) by Linnéa Myhre, and it was okay. Kind of. The writing wasn’t horrible, at least, but I’m really glad I’m not in that character’s head. The plot was boring, even if it dealt with eating disorder which is important. Basically the girl was only waiting for the guy to return and sometimes tried to dig her way out, to gain some confidence. It included too little insight in her thoughts, and some weird elements like calling her hypnosis/therapist “Den vise” (translated The Wise One). I just didn’t understand most choices that were made.
What are you currently reading?
Not a lot of progress on the spanish Harry Potter e la pietra filosofale since last week. Jade city took all my reading time. On the other side I’m 13% through with 60 highlights for translation or just to mark funny words and great sentence structures, so there’s that. And I wondered why it took so long time to gain progress.
What do you think you’ll read next?
Continue on hp and read some of Emily Dickinson’s poems. I’m looking for books with martial arts, maybe I’ll start Bruised by Sarah Skilton.
