WWW Wednesday

I had thought I’d read this at the weekend, but life – and reports!- got in the way! I’m just about to start it this evening, and am so looking forward to reading it.

I finished listening to Pride & Prejudice on audiobook, and absolutely loved it! Definitely one of my favourite classics. Elizabeth Bennett is a wonderful character, and I just can’t help but love her interactions with Darcy! I also finished reading Voyage of the Sparrowhawk at the weekend which I really enjoyed. It felt like such a classic adventure with characters who I really liked. I will be writing my review at the weekend.

I’m going to read Mystery of the Night Watchers next and listen to Hold Back the Tide on BorrowBox as it has now become available.

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

  1. Hope you’ve got your reports out the way now. Such a time consuming job, I hated it!
    I’ve just finished Night Watchers. I liked but didn’t love it, I think you’ll enjoy it more though. And I really hope you enjoy the audio of Hold Back the Tide as much as I did!

  2. Crowfall looks so great. I’m just so unsure of reading something by Vashti Hardy again. I have read one of her other books – was it the Griffinmap or something? – and I didn’t like her writing style at all. I’m not sure if that book was just aimed at much-much younger readers and was therefore a different read and the others might be better suited for me? (Or me for them?) What do you think? Do you have any experiences with her writing?

    1. I have read all her books. The Griffin Gate and Harley Hitch are both aimed at younger readers. I have used Brightstorm with my class and they have loved it – a great adventure. We also had a virtual visit which was fantastic. I think my favourite book of Vashti’s is WildSpark which is a standalone which won the Blue Peter Book Award in 2020. The main character’s brother has died and she is mistaken for him and taken to the City of Medlock where technology exists that allows the spirits of the dead to be brought back to life in animal-like machines. Prue wants to bring her brother back. This is a really powerful read which I absolutely loved!
