To play along just answer the following three questions:
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What are you currently reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
Over the weekend I finally got a chance to read The Epic of Gilgamesh. I read it my freshman year of high school (so many moons ago), but you can never read a 4,000+ year-old story too many times. I’m still processing exactly how I feel about it, but I think it boils down to the idea that I love the themes and can’t stand hardly any of the characters.
I’m knee-deep in The Last King of Texas, by Rick Riordan. I recently read, loved, and reviewed Big Red Tequila, the first in the series; this book is actually the third in the series, but I couldn’t find the second at the library this past weekend, and it doesn’t seem to really matter if you read them out of order. I’m sure I’m missing some stuff, but the books don’t seem to intertwine too much.
Coming up next
Okay, I know that I said I was done with dystopian. It’s possibly my least-favorite genre; I hate just about every aspect of it. But I just can’t stop thinking about Veronica Roth’s Divergent. Hopefully the culture of the world Roth has created will distract me from the fact that I’ll probably want to fling the book against a wall by the end of it.
What are you reading this week? Have you read any of these books? What did you think?
