Hello fellow Bookworms!! Today I’ll be doing WWW Wednesday. I have seen a lot of book bloggers doing this every Wednesday thta’s why I thought of doing it as well…
WWW Wednesday is all about What I last read, What I am currently reading and What I will be reading next.
WHAT I LAST READ
The last book I read was The Importance of Being Earnest. It was a re-read since I was going through a reading slump. I think that happened because of my internal examinations and presentations. But somehow I was able to overcome reading slump.
Oscar Wilde’s brilliant play makes fun of the English upper classes with light-hearted satire and dazzling humour. It is 1890’s England and two young gentlemen are being somewhat limited with the truth. To inject some excitement into their lives, Mr Worthing invents a brother, Earnest, as an excuse to leave his dull country life behind him to pursue the object of his desire, the ravishing Gwendolyn. While across town Algernon Montecrieff decides to take the name Earnest, when visiting Worthing’s young ward Cecily. The real fun and confusion begins when the two end up together and their deceptions are in danger of being revealed.
WHAT I AM CURRENTLY READING
So, currently I’m reading What We Talk When We Talk About Love by Raymond Carver. It is a collection of 13 short stories that talks about love, loss and companionship.
This powerful collection of stories, set in the mid-West among the lonely men and women who drink, fish and play cards to ease the passing of time, was the first by Raymond Carver to be published in the UK. With its spare, colloquial narration and razor-sharp sense of how people really communicate, the collection was to become one of the most influential literary works of the 1980s.
WHAT I AM PLANNING TO READ NEXT
The next book I am planning to read is Ruby Falls by Deborah Goodrich Royce. I got approved for the book on Netgally.
On a brilliantly sunny July day, six-year-old Ruby is abandoned by her father in the suffocating dark of a Tennessee cave. Twenty years later, transformed into soap opera star Eleanor Russell, she is fired under dubious circumstances. Fleeing to Europe, she marries a glamorous stranger named Orlando Montague and keeps her past closely hidden.
Together, Eleanor and Orlando start afresh in LA. Setting up house in a storybook cottage in the Hollywood Hills, Eleanor is cast in a dream role—the lead in a remake of Rebecca. As she immerses herself in that eerie gothic tale, Orlando’s personality changes, ghosts of her past re-emerge, and Eleanor fears she is not the only person in her marriage with a secret.
In this thrilling and twisty homage to Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca, the story ricochets through the streets of Los Angeles, a dangerous marriage to an exotic stranger, and the mind of a young woman whose past may not release her.
