WWW Wednesday – 16th June

Hello hello and welcome or welcome back to my little corner of the internet. Wednesday has rolled around again, which means it’s time for WWW Wednesday, and to look at how my recent reading has been going. Last week, I explained the situation with my vision currently, which is having an impact on how much I’m managing to read, but luckily some reading has happened between then and now, partially thanks to audiobooks, and partially thanks to the appearence of clouds in the sky!

WWW Wednesday is a way of looking at your reading habits by asking three simple questions:

  • What have you recently finished reading?
  • What are you currently reading?
  • What are you planning on reading next?

What have you recently finished reading?
My most recently finished read has been Threadneedle. This was one of my most hotly anticipated reads for this year and it absolutely did not let me down. It was a whole new magic system created for the book, and I love books that do that; I even wrote a post about a few of my favourites previously here. This book would be one I added to that list without hesitation, with so many different strands of magic weaving together to create a whole universe. It was an addictive book that I loved every single word of, and was a wonderful audiobook too.

What are you currently reading?
I’ve got three books on the go at the moment, which is pretty average for me. Firstly, I’m reading Ace of Spades after my signed copy arrived in my first ever book box, a mini box containing the book, a bookmark, and a collectable pin. It’s not an easy read but it is an addictive one, and I’m sneaking in chapters wherever my eyes and brain can tolerate them. And my family!

My audiobook currently is House of Salt and Sorrows, a gothic-touched retelling of the fairy tale Twelve Dancing Princesses. So far the spook factor is just starting to ramp up, but I already know from reading reviews it’s just getting started. It’s beautifully written too, and is a pleasure to listen to.

Finally, I’m doing a buddy read of It’s Behind You by Kathryn Foxfield, author of Good Girls Die First, which I absolutely devoured in the space of a day. Pacing myself with this one is proving difficult because the same temptation rolls with it!

What are you planning on reading next?
For once I’m absolutely sure what I’ll be reading next! I’m on a blog tour for Kind of Sort of Fine coming up soon, so I’ll be reading that next. I have it as an eARC so I might even start it sooner than ‘next’ so I can space out the reading because of my eyes. I’m quite looking forward to it, having enjoyed the recent YA contemporary reads more than I previously have, so it should be a good read.

So there we are! Thanks for stopping by, and please come back again soon for daily blog posts, ranging from book reviews to book tags, and everything in between.

  1. I’m reading Gather Together in My Name by Maya Angelou, a buddy read a friend and I are doing of her whole set of autobiographies. So lovely to be back in her world again. Next up is Akala’s memoir of growing up Black in the UK, which comes highly recommended.
