WWW Wednesday 17/2/21

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

What are you currently reading?

What have you just finished reading?

What will you read next?

So, first up, my current reads:

A Tangle of Spells by Michelle Harrison

OK I technically haven’t started this yet, but I’m about to and I am SO excited for it! The only good thing about having left A Sprinkle of Sorcery for so long is being able to dive straight into this one!

Anna at War by Helen Peters, audiobook read by Louiza Patikas

I bought this when it was released but still haven’t read it! Amy mentioned it recently and it jogged me to look for the audiobook so I coukd finally read it! I’m only a chapter or two in but I think I’ll enjoy it.

What have I just finished reading?

Punching the Air by Ibi Zoboi and Yusef Salaam, audiobook read by Ethan Harisse

Really thought-provoking, this merged some really lyrical poetry, with very effective metaphor and imagery, with a very blunt, real subject. The real life experience of the authors clearly helped add realism and credibility; so much of its power was in the small details rather than the bigger events. There was no sensationalism, no perfect characters, no easy answers. This is a book about systemic racism, inequality, power, division, prejudice and expectation. It is also a book filled with hope and possibility.

A Sprinkle of Sorcery by Michelle Harrison

Loved it! Loved it! Loved it! Full review ASAP.

Picklewitch and Jack and the Sea Wizard’s Secret by Claire Barker

I was so thrilled to receive a surprise advance copy of this in the post this week. It was totally unexpected and saw me give a little cheer of excitement. I love this series and this is a brilliant addition to it! Review to follow.

The Incredible Record Smashers by Jenny Pearson

Jenny Pearson’s writing is brilliant. I really enjoyed this and I’m pleased to see she’s another book in the pipeline too! Full review to follow.

What’s next?

The Fountains of Silence by Ruta Sepetys is my next physical read, I loved Salt to the Sea so I’m really looking forward to this.

My next netgalley read is Storm Keeper’s Battle by Catherine Doyle, another I can’t wait for!

Have you read any of these?

What are you reading at the moment?

  1. Great books!!!!! Anna at War made me cry- lots. Like several times.
    (Whispers) I am very behind in my Michelle Harrison (in fact I talk about that in my 1st www post in over a year when it drops later – scheduled so not to overtake my feature post)
    And VERY JEALOUS of Picklewitch!!!

    1. It’s so good to ‘see’ you!
      I’m loving bring back with the Widdershins but we can discuss more Michelle later! I’m glad I’m not the only one a bit late to the party though!
      And new Picklewitch IS AMAZING! I’ll be reviewing later (or maybe tomorrow depending how organised I am!) it was so unexpected to get a copy, I was thrilled!

    1. I’m loving Anna. I’ve been listening to it today and I don’t want to stop. Can’t believe I left it so long – thanks for the nudge!
      I’m glad I’m not the only one who’s left Sprinkle so long!

  3. I still haven’t finished A Pinch of Magic but I know that Michelle Harrison’s books are devine. That’s the problem with having too many books to choose from. 🙈
    Picklewitch & Jack looks supercute.
    I wish you happy reading! Looks like there are amazing reads in your future! ❤

  4. I’m glad you’re enjoying being back in the company of the wonderful Widdershins sisters. So glad you’re loving Anna at War. I absolutely adored it, although it did make me cry – lots! The Incredible Record Smashers is getting close to the top of my TBR – really looking forward to it as I loved Freddie Yates.
