Hello, sweet peas!
Will I continue with those ridiculous alliterations in my WWW posts? Why yes. Yes, I will. 😂
Okay, we all know I will be out of ideas until the end of the month.
Anyway, it’s time for Sam’s WWW Wednesday again. I didn’t have any time last week but I also hadn’t read that much so that post would just have been a repetition from the week before.
The Three Ws are:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
I’m currently reading Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods by Rick Riordan. I found it at the library. Of course I was aware of the book but I never felt like reading much about the Greek Gods specifically since that was what my thesis in school was about and I pretty much thought I know everything about them. Well, the stories I’m reading now are not new but I still love Rick Riordan’s writing. It might also give me the boost I need to finish the books by him that are still unread.
One of them was a graphic novel called Be Prepared by Vera Brosgol. It made me think of a summer camp I went to when I was nine. It was not Russian and it had not anything to do with camping but I was just the same age as the protagonist back then and it was also similarly segregated by age and gender… and I hated it too. I don’t have many fond memories of it. Although now that I think of it, my mom was very heavily pregrant with my sister at the time and maybe needed some downtime.
Ha, you see, a graphic novel that takes you down memory lane. And it’s full of feelings too.
The other book I recently finished was Woodwalkers by Katja Brandis. It was different from what I expected but still good. I liked the characters and the different classes the kids had to take. I might read the other books as well.
It’s probably going to be this here – Too many curses by A. Lee Martinez since I got that from the library as well. I like Martinez’ books. They are hilariously funny and I’m sure this one will be no exception.
To be quite honest, I haven’t read a graphic novel ever but I am very inclined to read some this year. I think it’s a genre I would enjoy a lot, too!
There are so many genres with graphic novels. I can highly recommend. 🙂
I love Rick Riordan too! I have done so much research and so many papers on Greek Mythology – I love to read anything with mythology in it ❤️
Have you read the Greek Gods book? I mean, I know most of the tales but the way he narrates it is hilarious. 😀
I’ve read most of the Percy Jackson series but I don’t think I’ve read the Greek Gods book. I’ll have to pick it up 😊
I can’t tell you the last time I read a graphic novel, but it’s coming up in my book club in a couple months. Happy Reading! https://teripolen.com/2020/02/12/www-wednesdays-what-am-i-reading-amreading-9/
Oh, I hope you pick a great one. There are so many out there and I feel like I still haven’t even scraped the surface. 🙂
Be prepared looks so cute! Thanks for bringing that too my attention. I’m sorry about the bad summer camp memories though, that sucks! Have a great week 🙂
Thank you. I also have some better summer camp memories but not from that year. 😅 Be prepared is really sweet but somehow also kinda sad. 🙂
Enjoy these tempting books! Thanks for sharing, and here’s MY WWW POST
Thank you! I definitely will. 🙂
That Woodwalkers cover is strangely mesmerizing! I am another one who hasn’t read a graphic novel in a while – I should! I usually enjoy them when I do 🙂
I know, they are very pretty. The rest in the series also look somewhat like them but with different characters and animals on them. 🙂 I hope you find a graphic novel that piques your interest. 🙂
I’ve actually somehow not read a Rick Riordan book? I need to do that this year, though! Woodwalkers has a really interesting cover! Almost reminds me of the old Animorphs covers. I want to read it, but I can’t seem to find it in English. What a shame. D: Happy reading!
Here’s my WWW post.
I first thought it was an American author too, but she’s German. Too bad that you cannot read them, they are quite fun. :/ And yes, there is Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods and one with Greek Heroes! They are insanely fun. It’s absolutely pulling me out of my slump. <3
