WWW Wednesdays (27 Oct)

A new (to me) weekly meme! Yayyy!! =)

Hosted at Should Be Reading. To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…

* What are you currently reading?
* What did you recently finish reading?
* What do you think you’ll read next?

My answers:

What are you currently reading?

Angela Carter’s Book of Fairy Tales. It’s a collection of fairy tales from around the world, some familiar, some not so, and many are quite sinister and gory. I’m really enjoying it so far! I think it’s a great read for fairy tale lovers!


What did you recently finish reading?

Well… I’ve read quite a lot of books since I touched down in Calgary, actually, but not all are good reads, so I’ll just mention a few of the ones I really liked:

Stephen King’s Under the Dome was great and one of my favorite reads of the year! It was so engrossing and I thought about the story and the characters long after I finished reading it. It’s similar to and as good as King’s The Stand, but it definitely has its own novelty. Loved it! Would recommend it to anyone who loves horror, thrillers, and apocalyptic stories!

L J Smith’s Dark Visions trilogy. I read this YA trilogy many times and many years ago. It was one of my favorite books as a teen, and although I thought now that I’m all grown up, it might have lost its charm for me, but I love it more now than ever.

The Secret of Ka by Christopher Pike. He’s one of my favorite authors ever since I read my first book by him when I was 11 years old. This is his newest book, which I liked, but I *loved* his older books a lot more!


What do you think you’ll read next?


Most probably Sheri S. Tepper’s The Waters Rising because I have it on loan from the library, but I might read some other non-fiction books I borrowed on herbs and gardening instead.

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own WWW Wednesdays post, or share your answers in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks!

Blogging from Canada!

Well, I’m finally back posting on my bookblog!! I’ve missed my blog so much, I’m so glad to be back!

We’d been so busy with finding a place to live, buying furniture, getting a job, getting my school stuff done, basically just getting on from day to day, that I just thought I shouldn’t blog until we were settled… but we’ve been in Canada a couple of months now and I think we’re probably as settled as we’re ever going to be!

Of course, we still need to buy more winter clothes, and firewood, and I need a car!!! I’m enjoying walking and taking public transport, but not when it’s cold out and I’m freezing and carrying heavy groceries!

Other than those minor stuff, I’m really loving it here! The air is fresher, the people are wonderful, I’ve got everything I ever wanted! =)

And the library, oooooohhhh, the library!!!

As some of you know, I sold a lot of my books prior to coming, but I’ve also kept a lot of my treasured books which I left behind in Malaysia. I was thinking that I’d miss them so much, but the library is so amazing that I hardly miss my books at all!

I’ve got books galore, courtesy of the library!

Well, of course, I can’t keep them and I can’t bookcross them, but I’ve got plenty of books to read and more!

In Malaysia, I buy all the books I have because the libraries suck, but here… I’m in booklovers’ paradise! =D

Anyway, I’m looking forward to blogging regularly again! We’re still really busy with everything, but we’re settling as fast as we can! I’ve missed everyone in the blogosphere!
