WWW & Wishlist Wednesday (28/05)

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme organized by MizB from Should Be Reading. It has you answering the following three questions: What are you currently reading; What did you recently finish and What do you think you’ll read next? To see my previous WWW Wednesday posts, just click this link and it’ll take you to the right page!

dw02WHAT ARE YOU CURRENTLY READING? | At the moment, I am reading The Dalek Generation by Nicholas Briggs. I bought this book at the Waterstones last Thursday, mainly because it’s a Doctor Who book written by Nick Briggs, who’s Mr. Dalek himself (he voices the Daleks in the show, and a lot of other creatures as well). So far, I’m really enjoying it!

I have also (re)started The Trials of the Core by Michael E. Thies again. I told myself last week that I’d pick it up again if I managed to get halfway through Paper Towns by this Wednesday, and I actually finished it within three days! I haven’t read much yet, but I am going to try to read a lot tonight!

WHAT DID YOU RECENTLY FINISH? | Like I said earlier, I finished Paper Towns by John Green. I didn’t love it as much as I loved the Fault in Our Stars, but it was enjoyable. I have posted my review here.

WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’LL READ NEXT? | I’m not sure which book I want to start next actually.. I’ve got quite a lot of books on my to-read shelf, and I’ll probably just pick a random book. Maybe I’ll give Half Bad by Sally Green another chance. Or I might start Runelight by Joanne Harris. I’ll see…

Wishlist Wednesday is a book blog hop hosted by Pen to Paper, where I’ll post about one book per week that has been on my wishlist for some time, or just added, that I can’t wait to get off the wishlist and onto my shelves.

losthero1Title: The Lost Hero (Goodreads)
Series: The Heroes of Olympus #1
Author: Rick Riordan
Release date: 12 October 2010

Jason has a problem. He doesn’t remember anything before waking up in a bus full of kids on a field trip. Apparently he has a girlfriend named Piper and a best friend named Leo. They’re all students at a boarding school for “bad kids.” What did Jason do to end up here? And where is here, exactly?

Piper has a secret. Her father has been missing for three days, ever since she had that terrifying nightmare. Piper doesn’t understand her dream, or why her boyfriend suddenly doesn’t recognize her. When a freak storm hits, unleashing strange creatures and whisking her, Jason, and Leo away to someplace called Camp Half-Blood, she has a feeling she’s going to find out.

Leo has a way with tools. When he sees his cabin at Camp Half-Blood, filled with power tools and machine parts, he feels right at home. But there’s weird stuff, too—like the curse everyone keeps talking about. Weirdest of all, his bunkmates insist that each of them—including Leo—is related to a god.

I loved the Percy Jackson series, and immediately after finishing the last book in that series, I added the first book of this series to my to-read list. But I still haven’t purchased it yet, mainly because there are just so many books I want to read.. But I am definitely planning on buying this book asap. I just want to read more about the Demigods and I just want to read more stuff written by Rick Riordan!

What are you reading, what did you recently finish, what do you want to start reading, and what’s the first book on your wishlist? Share your answers in a comment (a link to your blog or just your answers if you don’t have a blog)!
