WWW Wednesday 7th March

It’s Wednesday and you know what that means it’s time for WWW Wednesday- the meme is currently hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words and is a great way to do a weekly update on what you’ve been reading and what you are planning on reading.

All you have to do is answer these three questions –

What are you currently reading? 

What did you recently finish reading?

What do you think you’ll read next?

So here’s this weeks WWW Wednesday!

What are you currently reading? 

I am currently reading The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith.

th cuckoo's calling book cover

Most of the time crime novels do pass me by but I have recently seen the BBC adaptation starring Tom Burke and Holliday Grainger and it really got my hooked in the series. I know a lot of people would read this series just caused it’s penned by J.K Rowling but I’m not one of those people. So far I’m really enjoying the first book and look forward to reviewing the BBC series soon.

What did you recently finished reading? 

dead poets book cover

I recently finished The Dead Poets Society by N.H Klienbaum I caught the film starring the late Robin Williams and if you haven’t seen it go and see it now it’s a classic and has some really inspirational things to say about books, poetry and literature in general.

Now the book unconventionally was written after the film and unfortunately you can tell. Most of the time films, tv, theatre ect they are adaptations and interpretations of the novel, sometimes good, sometimes bad but interpretations none the less.

N.H Klienbaum’s Dead Poet Society is a frame by frame re-write of the film, with all the magic sucked out. The great think about reading an original novel is that you get in the characters heads, you know what they’re thinking and feeling and some that can be lost in a film; it can be interpreted in different way like through facial expressions, a touch or glance or even music… Trying to translate screen to page would be possible if the author had a little imagination or flair or was allowed to deviate from the screen play just a little but copying basically verbatim?

I had to DNF  sometimes that’s just the way it goes.

What do you think you’ll read next?

I will probably read Still Me by JoJo Moyes I was lent this by a friend and can’t wait to jump into it and loved the first two novels! I have read the first couple of chapters and it was great to re-visit Lou and Nathan and I’m looking forward to reading about Lou’s next step and her New York adventure.

    1. So far the first one is really good and just goes deeper into everything we know and love from the t.v show. (And I know what you mean about having a bit of crush lol)

    1. If I do read crime which isn’t often my go to is normally Tana French she’s ace; although I’m really enjoying The Cuckoo’s Calling.
      Thanks for the comment 😊
