WWW Wednesday – 7th July 2021

Hello hello and welcome or welcome back to my little bookish corner of the internet. Somehow it’s Wednesday again, and a week of the month has already sped past, seemingly at the same speed as this whole damn year. Seriously, where on earth have the last few months gone?! Last Wednesday I was on a blog tour so didn’t post my usual WWW Wednesday post, but today I’m back as normal.

As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I’m tackling two readathons this month: Path or Pantheon, and the Olympic Games, which is Percy Jackson themed. I’ve – still – not read the Percy Jackson series, but my son is a big fan, and I do love a bit of mythology so I loved diving into this world, even if it’s not a series I’ve yet read. With tackling two readathons, I had given myself quite a workload this month, but so far I’m making progress through my list, and I’m pretty chuffed with where I’m at. I also crossed the three quarters point mark with my reading challenge, finishing book 75 out of 100, which is not a bad place to be right now either.

Let’s get down to business.

WWW Wednesday as always is about looking at where your reading is at in a really simple way:

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

What have you recently finished reading?
In the early – spooky – hours of this morning, I finished reading the middle grade ghost story, The Haunting of Aveline Jones. For a novel that was supposed to be aimed at children, it managed to sufficiently creep me out, and I’m so here for it. It was scarier than some adult novels I’ve read, and I’ve been approved for the sequel on NetGalley, so I’m even more excited to get around to reading it now.

What are you currently reading?
I’m reading a couple of things (obviously) at the moment. My audiobook of choice currently is Carry On by Rainbow Rowell. I was lucky enough to be sent the third and final installment from Macmillan Children’s Books this week in the most beautiful package (check out my Twitter or Instagram to see the picture!) and as it’s been a while since I read Carry On, I decided to reread and refeash my memory. AND it fits one of my readathon prompts, featuring a school, so I don’t even have to feel guilty about it!

My paperback on the go at the moment is A Gathering Midnight, the second book in the Midnight’s Twins trilogy. I really enjoyed reading the first book in the series last month, and Hot Key Books kindly provided me with the newly published second book. After the events of book one, I’m really excited to be jumping back into the world created and I’ll be reviewing the first book here on my blog soon.

Finally, my ARC of choice this week is A Universe of Wishes which published yesterday, and I’m really pleased to be getting around to reading. It’s a We Need Diverse Books Anthology, and I already know I’ll take a lot away from it.

What are you planning on reading next?
Part of that depends on what I finish next, but I think I’ll be reading For The Wolf next. I have this in both paperback and audiobook formats, so depending of which book I finish first, I can decide where that will come into play.

I’m also really looking forward to getting around to reading Women of Troy, which I have as an ARC, after seeing some really wonderful reviews from other book bloggers recently.

So there we are! Be sure to pop back for daily posts ranging from reviews to book tags and everything in between.

  1. Some great reading here! I’m reading Johny Pitt’s “Afropeans” which takes a detailed and personal look at the lives of Black folk across Europe – something I know very little about, apart from in France. Germany’s massive Rasta culture, not so much. It’s brilliant, engaging and affecting so far, such a good read as well as an important one.
