WWW Wednesday

I haven’t actually started either of these yet, but I’m going to be later this evening and tomorrow morning. I really enjoyed Tiger Heart by Penny Chrimes so, when I saw this on NetGalley, I was eager to read it. I’ve seen lots of wonderful recommendations for The Silent Stars Go By so I reserved it on BorrowBox and it has now become available. It will be keeping me company on the drive to and from work over the next while.

This week I finished reading The Ocean Squid Explorers’ Club which is the most fun, imaginative adventure. The world building is brilliant. I am taking part in a Blog Tour later in the month, so will post my review then. I also read 44 Tiny Acrobats which is an adorable read for younger children. I am currently writing my review and hope to post it tomorrow – depending on how late I finish work! I also finished Uki and the Swamp Spirit which I absolutely loved. This is such an incredible adventure series that feels like a classic quest. The main characters, Uki, Jori and Kree have a wonderful bond and are such a brilliant, and brave, team. The ending has left me desperate for the next book for very different reasons than I had anticipated! Finally, I finished listening to The Light Jar which was amazing. For so much of the book I was on edge as I just didn’t know what to expect. It is such a cleverly written story with a wonderfully sympathetic character in Nate who I adored. I definitely need to read more books by Lisa Thompson as I really enjoyed the writing style in this one.

I have been sent a proof of The Abbey Mystery which is being published on 23rd April. I love Jane Austen’s books, so am really looking forward to a mystery with a young fictional Jane. I love the cover of this one too.

  2. I’m so excited to read Ocean Squid Explorers Club, it’s going to be my next read after the Gift of Dark Hollow (which I’m loving). The last book I finished before that was a reread of State of Sorrow, which I loved even more this time 😊

    1. I really need to read some Melinda Salisbury! I have Hold Back the Tide which Lily loves! I’m blown away by Alex Bell’s imagination- Ocean Squid is just brilliant fun! I’m so glad you’re enjoying The Gift of Dark Hollow – this is such a brilliant series. I’ve finished both Uki stories over the last two weekends – so fantastic!
