WWW Wednesday

I’m going to start reading The Chessmen Thief this evening and am really looking forward to it. I have been listening to Anne of Green Gables on Borrowbox. I can’t believe I have never read this before. I adore Anne with an e!

I read three books this week, including one adult book for a change! I really enjoyed Dragon Legend which is another action-packed, fast-paced adventure in this series with plenty of danger and is one I found a little darker than the last one. I am currently writing my review. After a comment from Rachael at Bellis Does Books, I just had to jump Starfell – Willow Moss and the Vanished Kingdom to the top of my TBR, and I am so, so glad I did. I have really fallen in love with this magical series which has adorable characters and such wonderful world-building. AND it’s got Oswin, ‘I is not a cat’, the kobold! If you’ve read this series, you’ll know exactly what I mean! I also read The Midnight Library which I read over the course of Sunday. I just kept coming back to read it at every opportunity as I was so drawn to the story. Nora makes a decision that she no longer wants to live and, at midnight, finds herself in the midnight library where the librarian is someone who supported her when she was younger. She has a huge book of regrets and is given the chance to undo these by stepping into her other lives, lives of ‘what ifs?’. What if she had made different decisions? What if her choices affect what happens to others? What if the life she is living has so much more potential? I found the idea of parallel lives in different universes utterly fascinating, and this story is ultimately an uplifting one, and just so beautifully written with moments that really made me stop and think.

I was sent an early copy of BigFoot Mountain which is due for release on 29th April, so I’m hoping to read it next.

What have you read this week? Have you read any of these?

  1. Yay! I’m glad you enjoyed Starfell! I’ve never read Anne either. It’s never really appealed but, before going off on one, I was trying to listen to some more classics so maybe I should try it. Did you like the narration?
    I’ll be interested in your thoughts on Bigfoot Mountain – I hope you like it more than I did!

    1. I loved it! I think it’s a series that is such a feel-good read! The narrator in the version I listened to is Liza Ross, a Canadian voice actress, and I really liked it. I hadn’t realised the author is Canadian! I’ve just reserved the second book, Anne of Avonlea. I’m hoping to have at least started reading BigFoot Mountain by the start of next week. I’ll let you know what I think.

  2. I really liked Matt Haig’s book ‘Reasons to Stay Alive’ so I’m looking forward to reading ‘The Midnight Library.” I also like “Anne of Green Gables” but ohmygod the cover you included in your post makes her look creepy! :O
