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

What are you currently reading?

Crater Lake by Jennifer Killick

I’m liking this well enough, although it’s taken a more sci-fi turn than I was expecting. I don’t think it’ll end up being one I love, but it’s likely to be one I continue to recommend at work.

The Sinclair’s Mysteries: The Painted Dragon by Katherine Woodfine, audiobook read by Jessica Preddy

I’ve nearly finished this now and, while I guessed the who in the whodunit at the very start, I’m intrigued as to how they’ll reveal it and how things will play out.

What have you just finished reading?

The Ship of Shadows by Maria Kuzniar

I loved this, and was very excited to find out there’ll definitely be a sequel next year. You can read my review here.

The Girl With the Louding Voice by Abi Dare

I enjoyed this. Our narrator, Adunni, brings a voice of hope and humour to some otherwise heartbreaking experiences, and in doing so gives a voice to many young girls and women still suffering from similar cultural and traditional beliefs and customs.

The Beast and the Bethany by Jack Meggitt-Phillips

Erin from My Shelves Are Full very kindly sent me her copy if this to try. It was a quick and enjoyable read, with plenty of humour to balance its more macabre themes of a child-eating Beast and the 512 year old who’s finding one to feed it.
I think kids will love a lot about this, but for me I couldn’t help but wish it was darker, especially towards the end when it veered closer to silly than scary. A solid book I’ll recommend but dudbt love personally.

What will you read next?

I have put together a TBR for October here, but totally forgot about Kiran Millwood Hargrave’s new book (I don’t know how I forgot it either!) A Secret of Bird and Bone so that is jumping straight to the top of the pile!

Have you read any of these?
