WWW & Wishlist Wednesday (14/05)

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!

grimmdiariesWHAT ARE YOU CURRENTLY READING? | At the moment, I am only reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. I have decided to save The Trials of the Core for later, because I just can’t get myself to read any further in it. It’s not that I don’t like it, I like it very much, but I haven’t been feeling very well the past couple of weeks (lots of headaches, tiredness) so I decided to limit myself to one book at a time. And sometimes a short story, when I feel like it.

WHAT DID YOU RECENTLY FINISH? | Since last week, I finished The Half-Blood Prince, and three novella’s, Beauty Never Dies, Laddle Rat Rotten Hut and Mary Mary Quite Contrary. I have written a review about them, which you can find here.

WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’LL READ NEXT? | After I finish Deathly Hallows, I want to reread The Tales of Beedle the Bard, Quidditch Through the Ages and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Not sure which one I’ll start with, perhaps with Fantastic Beasts, because we just got a date for the first movie (18 November 2016)!

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.

geheimekamerTitle: Harry Potter en de Geheime Kamer (Chamber of Secrets) (Goodreads)
Series: Harry Potter #2
Author: J.K. Rowling
Release date: November 2000

Harry can’t wait for his holidays with the dire Dursleys to end. But a small, self-punishing house-elf warns Harry of mortal danger awaiting him at Hogwarts School. Returning to the castle nevertheless, Harry hears a rumour about a chamber of secrets, holding unknown horrors for wizards of Muggle parentage. Now someone is casting spells that paralyse people, making them seem dead, and a terrible warning is found painted on the wall. The chief suspect – and always in the wrong place – is Harry. But something much darker has yet to be unleashed.

Yes, maybe a bit strange to have a Harry Potter book on my wishlist, but when I moved from one room to the other, both my Dutch Chamber of Secrets and Prisoner of Azkaban books disappeared. I suspect my dad threw them away because they probably looked awful (I had owned them for a very long time, read them about a thousand times, of course they’d look awful). I really really want my collection to be complete, so I am going to look for secondhand copies of both books soon. I’d rather have secondhand because they would probably look a bit like my other books, and because they are a lot cheaper. A new book still costs about 10/15 euros.

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)!
