Pause for WWW Wednesday 20/02

WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted by Taking on a World Of Words that simply asks three questions.

What are you currently reading?

Littlefae is embarking on Abie Longstaff’s latest Trapdoor Mystery: The Thief in the Night with gorgeous illustrations as ever by James Brown. This series is a favourite of ours but is not as well known as it should be. I highly recommend starting with A Sticky Situation.

What did you recently finish reading?

I just finished StormHound by Claire Fayers and just posted the review this book is just so lovely and as a dog owner made me laugh and feel wobbly at the same time. I highly recommend!

We just finished The Boy who Grew Dragons by Andy Shepherd Illustrated by Sara Ogilvie with Littlefae! Also underappreciated on Good Reads, we loved this playful and heartfelt comedy genius even if it had a lot of poo which confused Littlefae greatly! Review to follow.

What do you think you’ll read next?

I have had a few grown up historical fiction ARCs arrive this week including the highly anticipated The Garden Of Lost and Found by Harriet Evans (Headline Review-18th April) and Becoming Mrs Lewis (Harper Inspire 16th May)

But I’ve also finally got my hands on a copy of Star Spun Web by Sinéad O’Hart. decisions decisions!

Tinyfae is going to have Princess Poppy Please Please Save the Bees by Janey Louise Jones Illustrated by Jennie Poh tonight as we have been anticipating this book for a while and got our local bookshop to order it in with Star Spun Web.

Have you read any of these?

  2. I don’t know the Trapdoor Mysteries but they sound great. The Boy Who Grew Dragons is great fun too.
    I’m interested to know what you make of Please, please save the bees – it looks like a book I’d avoid usually but…it’s bees 🐝!!

    1. Trapdoor Mysteries are lovely sort of Downton Abbey with magic but the little girl is the only sensible person in the whole place!
      I will let you know about Please please save the bees! I’ve high hopes for the follow up No Plastic Please later this year.

    1. I’m so pleased! They are fantastic stories full of magic and wonder. Littlefae very much enjoyed the first few chapters today, looks like this is as good as the previous two so far!
