WWW Wednesday 6/2/19

WWW Wednesday is hosted by ‘Taking on a World of Words’ every Wednesday’:

What are you currently reading?

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by JK Rowling. Read by Stephen Fry.

I’ve been saying for over a year now that I’m going to re-read the Harry Potter books and I still haven’t – there’s just too many new books clamouring to be read in a TBR pile that just keeps growing!

I’ve also kept saying I was going to give audiobooks a try since having Peapod and finding I have a lot less time to pick up a book.

So, this morning I decided to combine the two and try the audio version of Harry Potter And the Philosophers Stone. The fact that it was read by Stephen Fry gave me high hopes and so far I’m really enjoying it – it’s a totally new (to me) way of reading but it was brilliant – feeding a wriggly worm? Still reading! Pushing a sleeping sausage round in the pram? Still reading! Preparing our breakfast with a hungry horace in his highchair? Still reading!

I’m only a couple of chapters in but so far this is getting a massive thumbs up from me!

What have you just finished reading?

A Pinch of Magic by Michelle Harrison. Cover design by Melissa Castrillon.

I really enjoyed this it had aspects of lots of different story types I enjoy all rolled into one – magic and fantasy, history and adventure. I had a proof copy of this to read for review, but I’m going to be buying one of the beautiful finished copies – the artwork is fantastic (and as for those purple sprayed edges!) Full review will follow this week or next.

What are you planning on reading next?

As ever, I’m not sure! Either Little Bird Flies by Karen McCombie, The Midnight Hour by Benjamin Read and Laura Trinder or Monsters by Sharon Dogar.

As for audiobooks, it’ll either be Chamber of Secrets and I’ll binge HP before reading anything else, or Mary Poppins as that is another book I want to read this year and it’s read by Olivia Colman who I’m a huge fan of.

Have you read any of the books here?

Which book should I choose next?

  1. So glad you enjoyed A Pinch of Magic! Have you seen the news aboit the sequel? I’m so so pleased.
    For your next read I’d recommend Little Bird Flies, though I have also read The Midnight Hour and it’s quite good as well. I’m on the fence about reading Monsters, so I’d love to hear what you think about that to helo me decide, especially since we tend to have quite similar opinions on books.

    • Yes, I’m really intrigued by the sequel as it’s not one of those stories where it’s clear to see where the sequel will pick up or what the thread of the story will be.
      I ended up starting Monsters, mostly because I couldn’t decide so thought I’d switch from MG to YA for a change. I’ve only read the first few pages but I think I’m going to enjoy it, I like it a lot so far. But Little Bird Flies will follow soon!x

    • Ooh, good to hear I’ll enjoy it when I do start it. In the end I went for Monsters just as it was something really different to what I’d just finished. I’m not far in yet but enjoying it so far.
