WWW Wednesdays (25th July)

25 Jul

WWW Wednesdays is a weekly meme held over on Should be Reading. To play along just answer the following questions.

What are you currently reading?

In book form I’m currently reading The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum. I read this as a child and really enjoyed it so i decided to re-read it as an adult to see if i enjoyed it as much. Its safe to say that i am!

On my kindle I’m reading Dracula by Bram Stoker. I am so surprised as to how much I’m enjoying this book, its fantastic and so creepy in a good way though!

What did you recently finish reading?

Over the past week I finished Across a Bridge of Dreams by Lesley Downer. I got sent this book from the publishers Transworld as part of the Hardback Historical Challenge.I loved it, i just love the culture and all the differences to my life in the book.

What do you think you’ll read next?

Next up off my massive TBR is The Dresskeeper by Mary Naylus. This is a young adult book and ive been looking forward to it for a while.

    I never read the Wonderful Wizard until college, I had to write a paper about the possible political allegory. They say it was written to disparage the losing of the gold standard and going to a bi-metal standard of silver and gold. Whether he meant to do it or not, it is still an amazing story!! πŸ™‚
