WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted by Taking on a World Of Words that simply asks three questions.
What are you currently reading?
Starfell- Dominique Valente (Harper Collins)
I’ve been wanting to read this forever and I was so pleased when my mum dropped hints for my husband to bring home the sprayed edges Waterstones exclusive home with him.
This story about a young witch who doesn’t feel her power is very important until it really is appeals to me greatly.
Rosie Revere & The Raucous Riveters – Andrea Beaty and David Roberts (Abrams)
We’ve been trying to get Littlefae to understand that it’s ok to not finish a book in one go, that it’s ok to put a book down and come back to it. She has been a little reluctant to read longer books for that reason so this is our ‘put it down’ book. She gets 3 bite size chapters a night and no more. fingers crossed 🤞🏻
What did you recently finish reading?
Rose Interrupted- Patrice Lawrence (Hodder)
This isuch you with Rose’s family have recently left her father behind in a controlling religious sect after an event and everyone is struggling to adapt to life above a kebab shop in Brixton and all the possibilities and peril that the worldly world creates.
The Golden Butterfly – Sharon Gosling (Stripes) *
This is such a wonderfully enthralling and mesmerising historical mystery with Stage magic and puzzle boxes and an awakening sense of self and social justice for our protagonist Luciana!
Midnight at Moonstone – Lara Flecker and Trisha Krauss (OUP) *
This is just gorgeous! A Night at the Museum style ‘exhibits come to life’ narrative with a ‘save the farm’ (or in this case Historical Manor with caretaker flat) plot is a lovely comfortable read for a quiet or rainy afternoon and is packed with historical detail as the author is a professional costumer.
Review pending check back soon
Malamander – Thomas Taylor (Walker Books)*
This is an absolute cracker of a salty tale, Herbert Lemon washed up on the shore of Eerie on Sea in a crate of lemons and was taken in by the town now living as the Lost and Founder of the Grand Nautilus Hotel. One day a girl comes through his snowy window and asks him to find her parents who went missing 12 years ago and possibly has something to do with the local legend of a half man, half fish , half something Malamander that prowls the winter shore.
Review pending check back soon
Littlefae & Tinyfae
Princess Poppy, Please Please Save the Bees – Janey Louise Jones & Jennie Poh (Eden Cooper)
Both girls have been on a Princess Poppy picture book kick since seeing me take this picture for the other blogpost today!!
What do you think you’ll read next?
I have a few books to look forward to including:
Mo, Lottie & The Junkers- Jennifer Killick (Firefly)
A Girl Called Justice- Elly Griffiths (Quercus)
Where the River Runs Gold – Sita Brahmachari (Orion/Hachette)
Plus my Tsundoku!
Stick and Fetch Investigate: The Wrong End of the Stick -Phillip Ardagh & Elissa Elwick
I thought we would check out this second outing of the duo as Littlefae adored the first set of adventures in these adorable ‘mystery’ but not really stories of misunderstandings and a very innocently keen little girl and her dog. The naivety in these stories is sweet and childlike but with funny consequences.
