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?
Strictly speaking, I haven’t started reading this one yet, but I will be later this evening. I came home today to find I had been sent this, and a proof of the author’s latest book, A Key to Finding Jack which will be published in June this year. I’m really excited to read both of these.
I had the rest of half-term this week, so I managed to get five books read. I will be taking part on a Blog Tour for The Word-Keeper later this week, and will post my review then. This was a really quirky story, celebrating language which I really enjoyed. I also read Slugboy Saves the World which was brilliant fun – like a comic book in narrative form! I will post my review this weekend. Boot: The Rusty Rescue is the second book in the series and is such a wonderfully endearing story about friendship with plenty of action. I will be posting my review tomorrow. I’ve been eager to read The Girl Who Stole an Elephant since Christmas and I’m so glad I’ve now read it. I am currently reading it to my class, and they are loving it. I wanted to read one of my TBR historical books, so I picked up The Skylarks’ War. Why haven’t I read this before? It’s an astounding story that had me reading much later than I should on a school night! The storytelling is incredible and I absolutely lost myself in this narrative, really investing in the characters. Just brilliant!
Next, I hope to read Viper’s Daughter. This is one I was sent by the publisher, due for release at the beginning of April. It is the seventh book in The Chronicles of Ancient Darkness series, but can be read as a standalone. I love stories set in a prehistoric world, so can’t wait to read this one.
What are you reading? Have you read any of these?
