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

What are you currently reading?

Orion Lost by Alastair Chisholm

I admit I had reservations about this. I not a sci-fi fan. But I’m about a third in and really enjoying it.

That Time i Got Kidnapped by Tom Mitchell audiobook read by Jot Davies

This isn’t my usual cup of tea either but I do think Tom Mitchell’s books have been much needed in finding something for fans of funny books to move into as they move out of MG and into teen. It may not be the sort of thing I’ll ever love but I’m glad to see it available and I’m still dying yo see how it ends!

What have you just finished reading?

Moonchild: Voyage of the Lost and Found by Aisha Bushby

I didn’t dislike this but neither did I love it. I wanted to with its mythical inspirations, and I did enjoy elements of it, especially as the real action and stories began, but I don’t know…it just felt a bit lacking in parts; I can’t quite put my finger on it but it didn’t quite do it for me.

Taylor and Rose – Secret Agents: Villains in Venice by Katherine Woodfine, audiobook read by Jessica Preddy

I really enjoyed this, and while I coukd see certain revelations and twists coming from two books ago, I didn’t mind! A great setting and an even better ending!

The Mask of Aribella by Anna Hoghton.

I didn’t think I was going to like this, but in the end I really did! And I loved the Venice setting (especially as it completely coincidentally dovetailed with my reading of Villains in Venice!)

Full review coming, hopefully later today.

What will you read next?

Up next is Katya Balen’s The Space We’re In. I really enjoyed October, October by her so I have high hopes for this.

Have you read any of these? What are you reading at the moment?

  1. I’m so glad you’re enjoying Orion Lost. I definitely think there’s a market for more what I’d call ‘classic’ sci-fi in middle grade. I enjoyed The Space We’re In even though I found it emotionally difficult as I was not prepared for some events. I also think it’s more of a book for secondary school, so I’m really looking forward to seeing what you think. October,October is on my wish list for Christmas so I’m hoping my husband has taken the hint. I’d love …. long list of books! 😂

    1. I’ve just finished Orion and I LOVED it! I don’t consider myself a Sci fi fan but I’d definitely snap up more by Chisholm.
      I’ll let you know what I think of Space Between. I hope you get October, October and all your other bookish Christmas wishes!,
      I have to buy my own – no one will buy me books!

      How’s your sister doing now?x

      1. I’d definitely buy another book by him! My poor husband is resigned to adding to my TBR! My sister is feeling much better – very tired still but definitely on the mend thank goodness. x

  2. Glad to hear you liked Orion Lost more than I did (although it wouldn’t have been hard I suppose!), and yay for Mask of Aribella and Villains in Venice 😊
    Sorry you didn’t enjoy Moonchild as much as you’d hoped though. Looking forward to your thoughts on your current read, and to getting to October, October!
    I’m currently reading Frostheart (I like it but uni deadlines and getting distracted with other books mean I’ve been reading it almost 2 weeks so am slightly losing will to live with it…), last thing I finished was Glassheart and I’m not sure what I’ll be reading next, but you’ll be pleased to hear Podkin is one of my options! And Forest of Shadows and Snow Foal

    1. Oh no, did you really hate it?!
      I’ve just started The Space We’re In and it’s breaking my heart but brilliant!
      I didn’t get on with either Frostheart or Katharine Orton’s first book, so I’ve no plan to read Glassheart, but I hope you get your deadlines out the way and have chance for more sustained reading and enjoy both more than me!
      So excited to hear your thoughts on Podkin! I really hope it’s not a huge disappointment!!

      1. I REALLY didn’t like it, it was my last book of the year and I was honestly losing the will to live reading it, it just wasn’t my thing at all 😂. Down to just 4 and a bit deadlines now (I’d forgot one the last time I mentioned them to you) so I’m feeling a bit calmer, so excited they’re almost finished with x
