WWW Wednesday 9/3/22

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

After feeling like I was getting back into the swing of things, I’m once more feeling pretty swamped with work and blogging, reviewing and to a large extent reading has all taken the hit again! Still, it’s been a couple of weeks since my last WWW so it at least looks like I’ve been reading!

Well I wrote that last month for a WWW post and I could have written it this morning, it’s very much still the case. I’m exhausted at the moment!

What are you currently reading?

Still Life by Sarah Winman

I’ve only read the first few pages and will blame the fact that I fell asleep after that on reading in bed while exhausted rather than as any kind of reflection on the book itself!! Will report more next week!

Libby and the Parisian Puzzle by Jo Clarke

I’ve not technically started this yet but it’s on my bag ready to start on my lunch if I’m not prepping storytime stuff…🤞

A Thunder of Monsters by SA Patrick, audiobook read by Stewart Crank

Well I managed to listen to the recap at the start of this before my headphones died so it’s on hold til I get some new ones! Though I’m hoping to listen to a bit while I’m doing the housework tomorrow. Hopefully I’ll get into it soon as I really enjoy this series!

What have you just finished reading?

Since my last WWW post I’ve read a fair bit, but most were mentioned in February’s wrap up here. Since then, I’ve finished…

The Gifts by Liz Hyder

This was an enjoyable enough read, but honestly I was a bit let down after absolutely loving her YA debut Bearmouth. This just didn’t have the power or originality that did.

The Block by Ben Oliver, audiobook read by Julian Elfer

After finally catching up with the Raybearer duology by listening to Redemptor, I decided to follow up by listening to another next-in-series read that has been languishing on my shelf! I’m so glad I did. Even though I didn’t like the narration I was glad to be back in the dystopian world of Happy – this is such a clever, plausible, terrifying and under-rated series.

While the Storm Rages by Phil Earle

Straight into my top books of the year for sure. I LOVED this, it more than lived up to When the Sky Falls and the characters once again absolutely made it. Full review to follow.

What will you read next?

I’m hoping Bitter by Akwaeke Emezi and Young Mungo by Douglas Stuart…!

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

  1. Sorry your reading is taking a hit again. It’s really hard to maintain the read, review, blog cycle! I’m finding that I can only write a review at the weekend. Work is so busy that I’m finding I can only read a few pages in the evening hence taking longer than I’d like to read Mort! I bought The Gifts last weekend as I really liked the blurb. I haven’t read Bearmouth so won’t have a comparison.
