WWW Wednesday 4/9/19

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

What are you currently reading?

A Spoonful of Murder by Robin Stevens (ebook)

I read this when it came out, so I already know I’ll enjoy it! I decided to read it again now that I’ve read the Murder Most Unladylike books before it and know the characters better.

The Deathless Girls by Kiran Millwood-Hargrave.

I’ve nearly finished this and I am LOVING it! Full review ASAP!

Once Upon a River by Diane Setterfield (audiobook)

This us the Fiction Book of the Month at work, and I did really like the sound of it but knew I’d never fit it in as a physical book so I’m listening to it. I’m enjoying it a lot, though I’m not very far in.

What have you just finished reading?

I, Cosmo by Carlie Sorosiak

A firm ‘unrateable‘ – this wasn’t really my cup of tea, but there were a lot of positives and for younger readers/dog lovers more into their contemporary MG it’s brilliant. Cosmo is a sweet, funny narrator and the way the author uses him to narrate is a great way to approach the family issues in the book. One I’m happy to recommend despite not loving it personally.

Cream Buns and Crime by Robin Stevens (ebook)

This is a really gun addition to the series with shorter mysteries from The Detective Society and The Junior Pinkertons, as well as recipes, code breaking puzzles and information about real unsolved crimes and authors.

My favourite parts have to be Daisy being a ghost which absolutely cracked me up and the chapter written by Beanie and Kitty – I loved hearing more from them.

Circe by Madeleine Miller (audiobook)

I FINISHED IT!! This has taken me SO long, but I finished it last week. There was lots I enjoyed about it, but I seemed to wax and wane a bit with it – it woukd really grab me for a while, then I’d lose interest a bit, then something woukd get my attention again etc. I think I’d have done better if I’d been able to listen or read in longer spells though. Still, I’m taking a certain amount of satisfaction from finishing!

Kevin’s Great Escape by Philip Reeve and Sarah McIntyre

I loved the first Kevin book – The Legend of Kevin: a Roly-Poly Flying Pony – so I was very excited to get a copy of this one! Even more so when I saw Neville and Beyonce on the first page (guinea pigs with a penchant for adventure!).

Just as much fun as the first – review ASAP!

Kitty and the Moonlight Rescue by Paula Harrison and Jenny Lovlie

OK, not exactly my ‘thing’ but a good one to know about for young readers, especially fans of Isadora Moon who I think will love Kitty!

What will you read next?


I think Once Upon a River will take me a while (though hopefully not as long as Circe!) so I’m not sure yet.


I’ll be working my way through the Murder Most Unladylike series!

Physical copy

Something from my Sequel September stack! I’m not sure which yet though…

… *edit* I know exactly what. Look what came into work today (and it’s part of a series so it even counts!!)

I also picked these up

so I’ll be squeezing them in too!

Have you read any of these?

What are you reading at the moment?

  1. Well done on finishing Circe!! I’m not sure if I’ll get to it any time soon, but I do plan to try and read it at some point. I’m so happy you enjoyed Cream Buns and Crime; chatting about it with you is what stopped me swithering (😉) about whether or not I’ll include it in my new ongoing reread of them. And I can’t wait for ASOM thoughts now you know the girls better! ALSO, this means you’re reading Death in the Spotlight next and I could actually SQUEAL with how excited I am for that. Someone else I got hooked on these sent me live updates as they read the dénoument and it brought me immense joy. And YAY that the new Podkin book is in for you!!

    1. Yay all round! I’m glad you’re no longer swithering 😉😂 I’m only a chapter or 2 in to ASOM but already loving it even more than the first time round seeing Daisy supporting Hazelin their own ways is lovely! I’m very excited for DITS!

  2. Well I’m officially starting my MMU Marathon after I finish Skeleton Keys!
    You lucky thing with the Deathless Girls!! Always been a big vampires fan ever since I wanted to be Kirsten Dunst in Interview with a Vampire (definitely saw that film too young 😬)

    1. Haha, I went through a spell of loving vampire films as a teen, that one and From Dusk til Dawn (for different reasons) were faves. I think you are going to love Deathless Girls! I finished it today and it’s fantastic.

      1. OH MY GOD I thought my husband and I were the only people to have seen Dusk til Dawn!!! Loved that!!! Can’t wait for Deathless Girls, the gothic side of myself rejoices!!

      2. Haha, I loved it too! I really want to watch it again now! Between that and The Craft the other week I’ll have a whole week’s worth of old films to rewatch soon!!

  3. I’ve read Once Upon a River, and I really enjoyed it, though it did take me a little while to get into it. Definitely an enjoyable read, though. I hope you like it, too. 🙂 Congrats on finishing Circe! It’s one I want to read, but I’m afraid it’ll end up being a slow read for me, too. happy reading!

    Here’s my WWW post.
