Hello and welcome to my March 2020 reading status! I hope you are all well in this tumultuous times and that you stay safe, preferably at home as much as possible.

This is a WWW Wednesday post, hosted by Sam@Taking on a World of Words about the past, current and future reads.

1| What are you currently reading?

I am reading “The Labyrinth of the Spirits” by Carlos Ruiz Zafón and it is absolutely magic! As a big fan of “The Cemetery of Forgotten Books” series, I’ve been patiently waiting to read this book for a couple of years. And now that I am reading it, at high-speed because it is so captivating, I don’t want it to finish too soon … #bookwormproblems

2| What did you recently finish reading?

I finished reading “An Artist of the Floating World” by Kazuo Ishiguro. It is a book I received as Christmas present from my brother – a well-thought present, as I enjoyed a lot reading “Never Let Me Go” and “The Remains of the Day” by the same author. The book was more similar to “The Remains of the Day” – slower pace and frequent flashbacks.

 

3| What do you think you’ll read next?

After finishing the 800+ pages book by Zafon I want to read a shorter book – most probably “Homegoing” by Yaa Gyasi. I bought this book because I was inspired by Stephanie from Adventures of a Bibliophile to start reading authors of color. And this is the first book I picked to join the initiative!

 

‘Till next time … happy reading and #stayhome!

      1. Hamlet is interesting, it looks like the first Star Wars: oldies but goldies. Seriously now: in Hamlet you find a lot of themes and motifs known before from the ”younger” literature; you know them and reading Hamlet you discover these themes are coming from Shakespeare! And Hamlet is also interesting because of the very clever dialogues and because of their deep senses, very modern … but they are still coming from the 16th century…

      2. I can totally understand your point regarding motifs – during the online course about Shakespeare, where I learn about the stories on a very high level, I also identified some themes that sounded very familiar … and I realized that Shakespeare was first!
