Hosted by ‘Taking on a World of Words’, every Wednesday we ask and answer the 3 W’s:
It’ll be a short one this week as I’ve not managed much reading at all. I don’t know where this week has gone!
What are you currently reading?
I pre ordered this, having been ridiculously excited about it since it was announced. I picked it up early, at the end of September. And up until today, I still hadn’t started it! I think I’d built it up so much I haven’t quite been able to bring myself to begin! So, I’m taking the plunge today…
What have you just finished reading?
I didn’t know what to expect from this and hadn’t realised at all when I requested it that it was predominantly poetry, but it was a pleasant surprise – especially in light of my recent decision to read more poetry and dedicate Thursdays’ posts to it.
I enjoyed it, though it felt a bit like a book of two halves and I definitely preferred the first half. The latter part of the book did feel a bit ‘filler’, but on the whole it was a really creative and interesting take on the fairytale-retelling that seem very popular at the moment.
Full review to follow.
What are you planning on reading next?
I’m probably going to go on an MG spree, but as I’ve only just opened The Way Past Winter, I’m not sure yet, so instead of what I’ll read next, I’m asking/answering
What books were added to your TBR this week?
I received an absolutely bumper bookpost parcel from OUP this week and am very excited to dive into these, especially the Michael Morpurgo Myths and Legends.
I also received these gems from Harper Collins – I’m especially looking forward to Hubert Horatio.
I ordered both of these after seeing them on Read It Daddy and they both look fab!
And this is a treat to myself! I absolutely love it when a book has a map in it, so I just couldn’t resist!
Did you get any exciting book deliveries/purchases this week?
Have you read any of the books here? What are you reading at the moment?
