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 The Vanishing Trick which I have been approved to read by the publisher via NetGalley. This sounds like it will be a darker read, so I’m really looking forward to it.

Any attempt at planning my reading seems to have gone out the window! I decided to read a couple of books that I’be had on my TBR pile for a while. The Star Outside my Window is such a powerful, beautiful and sensitively written story that tore at my heart, but I just couldn’t put it down. I also read Dragon Daughter which I enjoyed, but I didn’t love as much as I thought I would. I took part in the Blog Tour for Brittle’s Academy for the Magically Unstable which was a very short, but fun magical read. Finally, I’ve just finished Gargantis which I devoured in a day – the first book I’ve read via PDF as Walker Books approved me to read it via NetGalley but there was no Kindle option! I absolutely loved it – a wonderful return to Eerie-on-Sea for another edge-of-the-seat adventure with the brilliant Herbert Lemon and Violet Parma.

I’m hoping to read The Peculiar Peggs of Riddling Woods next. This one has been on my TBR for far too, long. I’ve just looked at the blurb again – it sounds exactly my kind of book.

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

  1. Intrigued by The Vanishing Trick. I really enjoyed Peculiar Peggs, I think you will too.
    I didn’t plan my reads this month either and have been trying to get straight with both reviews and life. I’m hoping to start May feeling a bit more with it and with more of a plan!

    1. I think The Vanishing Trick plays on the Victorians interest in spirits! So many books have had publication dates changed – I think Jungledrop is now October! I’m debating whether to take part in Believathon 2!

      1. Oooh, yes! I forgot about Believathon. I enjoyed it last time so I’m going to have a look and try to join in again. Thanks for the reminder.
        I can’t keep track of publication dates at the best if times. I have no chance at the moment 😂

      2. I bought The Compendium so the prompts are:
        The Poacher’s Pocket Inn – read the first book in a series.
        The Yellow Brick Road – read a book that you should have read years ago.
        Baba Yaga’s House – read a book featuring a family relationship.
        The Wonderfalls – read a book featuring a disability.
        100 Acre Wood – read a book with yellow on the cover.
        The Deepwoods – read a book that was published before the year 2000.
        Mermaids’ Lagoon – read a book featuring a female bond – sisters, friends.
        The Brolly Rail – read a book featuring transportation or with it on the cover.
        Orion Lost – read a sci-fi book or one related to space.
        Black Ice Bridge – read a book that features an expedition or an adventure.
        The Book-Keeper’s Stronghold – read a book that is the next in a series.

        There is a video on Gavin’s YouTube vlog where he talks in detail. I now need to decide on all the books I want to read!

      3. Aaah, thank you! That’s a huge help. I can start pondering what to choose now too! I recall seeing the compendium mentioned and thinking I’d go back to look properly then never did, will see if it’s still on his twitter somewhere…

  2. I have Vanishing trick to read and I LOVED Peggs. It was my first ever review for a reason!!! The Peggs has everything, dark twisted magical realism- adjacent fantasy, danger in the edge of are they goi g to survive, creepy folklore & superstition OH it’s marvellous, my review did not do it justice.
