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?

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?

    1. Oh my goodness – Skylarks’ War really was one of the best historical fictions I’ve read. Makes me really keen to read The Time of Green Magic which is also on my TBR. The premise of Girl 38 sounds really interesting so I’m definitely looking forward to it. Thought I’d start this evening but I went to the see Milton Jones’ show at the theatre so will start tomorrow.
