WWW Wednesday 24/2/21

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:

The Storm Keeper’s Battle by Catherine Doyle

I’m really enjoying being back on Arranmore. Finn is such a brilliant main character, I love how he has remained the underdog, a ‘hopeless case’ right through the trilogy.

The Fountains of Silence by Ruta Sepetys

I was so excited for this and I’ve been drawn straight in and don’t want to put it down. You can read my full review as part of the blog tour in a couple of weeks.

The Skylarks’ War by Hilary McKay, audiobook read by Katherine Press

I read this and loved it when it came out (my review is here). It is definitely one of my all-time favourites. I wanted to re-read it before reading the new, companion novel The Swallow’s Flight and luckily the narration is perfect so I’m listening to it and loving it every bit as much as I did first time round.

What have I just finished reading?

A Tangle of Spells by Michelle Harrison

I loved this (there was never any question of me not doing really was there?!) and I’m so thrilled there’s going to be another Widdershins adventure to come! Full review to follow.

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

This was a really well told and very moving wartime adventure. Just the right balance of emotion, tension and realism with some very believable and likeable characters. I especially liked the first half of the book as we saw Kristellnacht unfold, Anna’s journey on the Kindertansport and her first impressions of England.

What’s next?

I’m so thrilled to have been approved to read The Swallow’s Flight by Hilary McKay so that will be my next netgalley read, once I finish rereading Skylarks’ War.

My next physical book will probably be The Weather Weaver by Tamsin Mori, though I have accrued something of a backlog again all of a sudden so I definitely need a TBR sort soon!

Have you read any of these?

What are you reading at the moment?

  1. So excited to read Storm Keepers’ Battle soon, and so happy you enjoyed Anna at War! I really want to reread Skylarks already because I loved it so much, but it’ll probably be after Swallows Flight I end up actually getting to it! Can’t wait to hear your thoughts on it soon, and I’m very much looking forward to the Weather Weaver as well x

  2. I’m so glad you enjoyed Anna at War – it was the ending that got to me most. I hope you enjoy The Weather Weaver – I thought it was great! I have a copy of The Swallows’ Flight too, and am looking forward to it as I loved The Skylarks’ War. I got sent a copy of Circus Maximus unexpectedly. To be honest, I probably wouldn’t have picked this one up if I hadn’t been sent it, but I would definitely have been missing out on a great story. I started reading it at the weekend and was totally immersed in it. I think it’s part of a series.

    • That’s good to hear as I probably wouldn’t have picked it up either but you and Amy have encouraged me to bump it up the pile after both enjoying it.
      I’m loving listening to Skylarks again, so looking forward to diving into Swallows!
