We are halfway through the week already and I hope you are all having a great one so far. I know that I definitely am, as I’ve had a couple of job offers. Before I make a decision on which one I want to accept, I have to wait to hear from one more (the one I actually want). Fingers crossed that it is before Friday as that is my deadline for telling the others my choice.
My other good news is that I have my mojo back! For a little while my writing was struggling. I was rewriting my story, changing it from first person POV to third person and it was draining me. Then, the other night, all these light bulbs went off in my head and the ideas just kept coming. I managed to write a full document detailing the beginning, middle and end of my novel with a total of 2,000 words. I have to say, I felt very productive afterwards and now that I have finished the rewriting part, I can get to the fun bit.
What Are You Reading Wednesday was created by Rhianna, Marissa, and Kendall. The idea of What Are You Reading Wednesday is to create an online space for bookworms to chat, discuss and recommend their current reads. All you have to do is answer a few questions and link up with one of the host’s sites. So easy!
Share the book/s you are reading with their author, maybe even the cover, and then answer these questions for at least one of them
- Why did you decide to pick up this book–cover or content?
- Who is your favourite character so far, and why?
- Will you finish this one?
- Finish the sentence: This book reminds me of…(other books, movies, tv shows…)
- What type of read is this one? (slow but interesting, cannot put it down…)
My Current Read
This is the second instalment in the Red Queen series by Victoria Aveyard.
1. Why did you decide to pick up this book – cover or content?
Definitely the content, as I read the first book not that long ago. Although, the covers of this series do look beautiful as well (especially the fourth book, War Storm).
2. Who is your favourite character so far, and why?
After having read the first novel, I still think that Mare is my favourite character for lots of reasons. She is stubborn and witty, getting stronger every day even when others would have crumbled.
3. Will you finish this one?
I wasn’t so sure in the beginning because I was struggling to get into the story again. But I’m only 100 pages in and I have to give it a chance to get better. After the last chapter I read, I will definitely be trying to finish it (I have the third one of my shelf, one that a lot of people liked).
4. Finish the sentence: This book reminds me of…(other books, movies, tv shows…)
In a way it reminds me of lots of dystopian books (The Hunger Games and Divergent for example) with the different factions, how people are separated and the war stricken world. They have a lot of the same features, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
5. What type of read is this one? (slow but interesting, cannot put it down…)
I am finding the second book a little slower than the first and it definitely seems more serious to me. I don’t want to give away too much in case someone hasn’t read it, but I am hoping that there will be more action later on as it started with a couple great chapters.
