WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted by Taking on a World Of Words that simply asks three questions.
What are you currently reading?
As of typing this I have not selected my next book as I finished my last book about an hour before this!
What did you recently finish reading?
I’ve had a rather slow week. The girls have not been themselves over the weekend, a little overwhelmed by our trip out to see Claire Barker, tired from trick or treating then turning rather poorly so I have not had as much reading time as normal.
Hollow Pike- Juno Dawson
I read this partially as there is to be a television adaptation of the book and it has references to witches and it certainly has a rather British The Craft meets Mean Girls but in rural Yorkshire feel about it! Fantastic story-craft by Juno who really captured the fears, frustrations and isolation of a bullied teenage girl.
Cogheart– Peter Bunzl
This was my first book of Believathon and I’m going to have to get my backside in gear if I’m going to meet this challenge at this rate!!
The steam Punk historical fiction adventure of a young girl whose father has disappeared presumed dead and the perilous machinations of desperate men who are prepared to kill for whatever it was he was hiding.
Mr Penguin and the Catastrophic Cruise- Alex T Smith
I think Alex T Smith is simply marvellous as everything he creates my daughters adore! Mr Penguin is back in anxious collywobbles this time on board the Saucy Sandra where there are whispers and shadowy rendezvous suggesting something terrible is about to happen!
Review coming soon as this book is published November 14th.
The Other Alice – Michelle Harrison
My second prompt of Believathon being for magic. This is a wonderful standalone filled with bookish wonder and imagination as a young writer’s imagination unleashes the characters from her stories into the real world.
What do you think you’ll read next?
Well I have the rest of Believathon to be getting on with BUT I also have other books wanting to be read too!
So it’s between letting Littlefae pick my next prompt (and as I’m typing this during another insomniac night with Tinyfae that’s not going to for a few hours yet!) or going for The Great Brain Robbery by PG Bell, Shadows of Winterspell by Amy Wilson or The Stars at My Window by Onjali Rauf.
