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’m just about to start reading Jungledrop – just as soon as I write a review that I need to get done for tomorrow! I adore Abi’s writing, and absolutely loved the first book in the series, Rumblestar as well as the World Book Day release, Everdark. I’ve heard so many good things about this book, and can’t wait to get started – I think this is a book I will read in one sitting!

I’ve read four fantastic books this week. I finished Crater Lake which was a brilliant read: just the right amount of creepy edging on really scary with a good dollop of humour and heart. I then went completely ‘off’ my reading order and read two books that I’ve been wanting to read for ages. I read the e-book of The Magic Place via my library in one sitting, and it was a truly gorgeous read, if somewhat painful at times as Clementine was treated terribly by her ‘Aunt’ Vermilia and ‘Uncle’ Rufus – such awful characters! The ending was just wonderful – and I loved how Chris Wormell’s gorgeous black and white illustrations became colour! I’ve had The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane on my reading shelf for a while now. Oh my! This is such a beautiful story, and not at all what I was expecting. Edward’s transformation, and the terrible situations he faced, really tore at my heartstrings. Utter brilliance! The final book I read this week was TrooFriend. This was an utterly compelling and fascinating read which raises lots of questions related to AI. I could really sense ominous undertones as I read it, and wasn’t quite sure what way it would go which is a real testament to the talent of the author, Kirsty Applebaum. I will post my review in the next couple of days.

I’ve got quite a lot of books I’m really looking forward to reading on NetGalley, so I think I’m going to read a couple of those next. I’ve chosen The Vanishing Trick which I’ve heard so much about – I’m very excited to start this. I adored Malamander by Thomas Taylor last year, and have been eagerly anticipating the next book in the series from Eerie-on-Sea, Gargantis. Walker Books are now on NetGalley, and I couldn’t resist requesting this one! I’m having a real problem stopping myself from requesting ALL the fantastic middle-grade currently on there!

What are you currently reading? Have you read any of these?
