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

What are you currently reading?

The House on Hoarder Hill by Kelly Ngai and Mikki Lish

I’ve only read the first chapter but it’s drawn me right in, I have high hopes!

Witch by Finbar Hawkins

I feel like I’ve said I’m about to read this repeatedly for months, but this time I really, really am about to start it!

The Sinclairs Mysteries: The Midnight Peacock by Katherine Woodfine, audiobook read by Jessica Preddy

I’ve actually read this before but I don’t remember it very well and I couldn’t leave off the last book in the series (despite the bloody narrator!)

What have you just finished reading?

The Sinclairs 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.

Zombierella by Joseph Coelho and Freya Hartas

This is one I’ll definitely be recommending, as there was plenty to enjoy – I really liked the balance struck between ‘horror’ and humour.

Unfortunately there were other things I was less keen on, so I didn’t end up loving it as much as I’d hoped, but it will be one I recommend as, for its intended audience, I can see it going down a storm!

Pine by Francine Toon

Another I was sadly pretty underwhelmed by. I had high hopes and enjoyed the early part of the book, which really built up a chilling atmosphere amidst the remote Scottish Highlands in winter. However the second part of the book felt like stereotype followed by cliché followed by trope and the ending was disappointing to say the least.

A Secret of Birds and Bone by Kiran Millwood Hargrave

Let’s end on a high – I LOVED this! You can read my review here.

What will you read next?

October, October by Katya Balen is next physical book on my October TBR, and I have The Once and Future Witches by Alix E Harrow on netgalley.

Have you read any of these?

  1. Oh, there are so many books on your list that I have seen around but haven’t gotten to read yet. The House on Hoarder Hill sounds so great, that one I really wanna read. 🙂

  2. I loved The House on Hoarder Hill – hope you continue to enjoy it. I enjoyed Zombierella but I’m not sure if some more sensitive children might find it a bit much although I do know lots like gore! I will be putting it in my class library and will see what the children think!

    1. I’m really enjoying it – Stan and Doug are hilarious!
      I’d be interested to hear what your class have to say about Zombierella if some of them read it.
      I know what you mean about it being a bit much for some kids, but others would undoubtedly revel in it!
