What are you currently reading?
I Shall Wear Midnight by Terry Pratchett, audiobook read by Stephen Briggs (cover art pictured by Laura Ellen Anderson)
I am gulping down the Tiffany Aching books. I’m nearly at the end of this now, just a chapter to go.
Tiffany’s trip to the city has made me keen to return to Ankh Morpork too – looking forward to (re) reading the other Discworld books!
The Nowhere Emporium by Ross McKenzie (eBook)
I keep my ebooks for the dark lonely hours of night wakes and feeds but Peapod’s sleep is even more unpredictable than normal at the moment so I’ve either actually managed to get a bit of sleep or the complete opposite where I’ve been up nearly all night but either too tired or too busy wrestling am unsettled bubs to read!
Long and short of it is that I haven’t got very far with this yet!
What have you just finished reading?
Owen and the Soldier by Lisa Thompson, cover art by Mike Lowery
I was really pleased to see Lisa Thompson had written this fir Barrington Stoke, I hope she’ll do more, I think her style is a great fit for them.
This was a great, quick read with her usual depth of understanding and a believable voice that her target audience should find easy to relate to. Review to follow.
No Ballet Shoes In Syria by Catherine Bruton, cover art by Kathrin Honesta
I really enjoyed this. Yes, there were a couple of things that grated on my cynical old self but not enough to put me off the book as a whole and for children, they provide a good balance to some of the harder parts.
I liked that there was a satisfactory ending without something happening that could have happened. Though, if I’m being nit-picky, the other thing that could have happened and did happen I’d have preferred to be left not knowing about too. (Sorry, vague I know but I don’t want to spoil it for anyone who’s not read it!)
Overall though, I really enjoyed it and I loved the writing style and the use of flashbacks, memories and conversations to tell Aya’s story. Review to follow.
What will you read next?
The Shepherd’s Crown – the last of the Tiffany Aching books.
Murder Most Unladylike.
I’m taking part in the #PinkRabbitReadalong on Twitter so I’ll be re-reading that next.
Im not sure what else I think I prob need to crack on with some of the YA I have waiting – Deathless Girls is a strong contender!
Have you read any of these?
