Pausing for WWW Wednesday 13/03

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

What are you currently reading?

I’m currently reading an ARC of Viper by Bex Hogan (Hachette/Orion April 2019) which is absolutely brilliant. I’m gutted that I haven’t finished it already but I think I can be forgiven for a slow pace considering Tinyfae didn’t sleep between midnight and 7am yesterday which meant I didn’t either.

Littlefae has been embracing the picture books again currently and is reading her way back through the Jill Murphy collection.

What did you recently finish reading?

In the early hours of yesterday whilst Tinyfae refused to sleep to maintain our sanity she watched Puffin Rock and I finished Scavengers by Darren Simpson (Usborne 2019) which made me all wobbly over on twitter with its tale of a boy raised in a bleak landscape with a scavenger’s rules to keep him alive and safe from the Outside and what happens when he starts to question the rules.

Tinyfae is enjoying being reread the Princess in Black stories again. We just finished The Princess in Black and the Bunny horde (Walker Books 2018) which is her absolute favourite.

What do you think you’ll read next?

Next up on the list is Enid Blyton’s The Secret Seven Mystery of the Theatre Ghost by Pamela Butchart (Hodder Childrens 2019) I really enjoyed the first one Mystery of the Skull as a read aloud with Littlefae. I’m hoping she will let me read aloud again as she has been flipping through it.

I am also looking forward to really embracing the Spring books and as we are so lucky to have a garden I hope to look at some gardening projects with the Fae such as in National Trust Busy Bees: Sunflower Shoots and Muddy Boots by Katherine Halligan and Grace Easton (Nosy Crow 2019)

After all Audrey Hepburn said ‘ To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.’

Have you read any of these?

What are you reading?

  1. I just impulse bought Scavengers at the weekend even though I’m generally not the biggest fan of dystopia (mostly because I thought the dedication was gorgeous and it made me cry) so I’m glad you enjoyed it 💜

  2. I’ve got a copy of Scavengers waiting to be read here, this has made me bump it up the pile a bit!
    Love Jill Murphy so much!
    And sorry you’ve had no sleep! We’ve got teething troubles here so I’ve had barely any either, but more than you’ve managed so I feel for you! Hope you get some soon!

    1. Oh goodness it’s no fun, Littlefae just used to rub her ear in the afternoon and in the morning a new tooth was there- angel.
      Tinyfae I’ve PAID for every single tooth my goodness!
      Scavengers is very different, shocking and upsetting in places- it’s a very thought provoking book which is what I loved about it

    2. Yes, I wasn’t sure what to make of Scavengers but from what you’ve said it sounds right up my street.
      Peapod was fine with his first tooth, an absolute chompy drool machine but otherwise totally not bothered but this second one has caused no end of bother! He’s still grizzling even now it’s through, so thinking there might be more on the way too 😭

    3. Oh Tinyfae has everything and anything in her mouth at the moment -she’s not a mouther so this is the clue for teeth. I hope Peapod gets better with future teeth!!
