WWW Wednesday

This is a meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words.  It asks three questions:

1.      What are you currently reading?

2.      What did you recently finish reading?

3.      What do you think you’ll read next?

I’ve just been approved on NetGalley to read this, and it has jumped straight to the top of my TBR. I absolutely adored the Widdershin sisters in A Pinch of Magic and can’t wait to join them again.

This week I finished The Mercies which is Kiran Millwood Hargrave’s first adult novel. I don’t read very many adult books nowadays as I spend most of my time reading middle-grade, but I couldn’t resist this one when I saw it on NetGalley. And I was not disappointed: it is a powerful, brutal, earthy story of the strength of some to endure the manipulation of others, based around the Vardo witch trials in Finnmark in the early 17th century. This is being released in the UK on 6th February. If you are a fan of historical fiction, witchcraft and character-centred stories, this is definitely one for you! I’ve just finished reading Where the World Turns Wild by Nicola Penfold which is a dystopian environmental middle-grade, which tore at my heart. THE most amazing book which was utterly compelling. The two main characters, Juniper and Bear are perfectly written: completely believable and sympathetic. This is being released in the UK on 6th February. I think this will be another bumper release date for books I want!

I have just received a Proof of this one to read from the publisher on behalf of a Book Review site. I don’t read a lot of middle-grade sci-fi, so I’m really looking forward to this! And it has been recommended by the wonderful Lily over on her amazing blog at Lily and the Fae so I know just know I’m going to love it!

  1. Oh Orion lost is REALLY good and I’m not a huge fan of SF either! It’s like a claustrophobic isolation mystery wrapped up in the cloud of imposter syndrome – a whodunnit/ what’s going on sort of thing under the SF veneer.
