WWW Wednesday – 10th November 2021

Hello hello and welcome or welcome back to my little bookish corner of the internet. Wednesday has rolled around again, and it’s time for WWW Wednesday again. I always warned myself – probably via the posts I was writing here – that November was going to be a difficult, chaotic month but I don’t think I was quite prepared for it to actually be November.

One of the things I have done is absolutely burrowed into my blanket fort with my books (nearly typed boobs there, whoops, those are there too) and am getting some reading done. I’ve even picked up my crochet hooks once or twice and started making some Christmas presents. I won’t be making many this year, but I’m going to make a couple, where I can.

Anyway back to Wednesdays!

As always WWW Wednesday is about looking at recent reading habits with 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 book was T.I.G.E.R.S, book four in the S.T.A.G.S series. I absolutely loved this book and I can’t wait for book five already! One of the best things about this series is that it just keeps going in unexpected directions, and this wasn’t any different. Here’s the synopsis:

The alluring yet corrupt STAGS society, where the rich and privileged play fast and loose with the lives of others, is revealed to be terrifyingly global …

Shafeen’s father, Prince Aadhish, has had a heart attack and is close to death. Desperately worried, Shafeen and Greer race from STAGS to Rajasthan. But Prince Aadhish is in a coma and unresponsive and they begin to realise that the Prince received a terrible shock, triggered by a decades-old guilty secret.

But as Shafeen and Greer attempt to unlock the secret, they come to believe the answer lies with the de Warlencourt ancestor Colonel Montgomery, founder of the T.I.G.E.R. shooting club, which horrifyingly pursued low-caste Indians instead of tigers. It appears that ‘Monty’ brought the Order of the Stag to India, and the hunts may still be going on...

What are you currently reading?
As always there are multiple books happening!
My audiobook is The Devil Makes Three. At time of writing this, I’ve only got an hour left to go, and while I’ve found the book to have a few issues, I’m still really enjoying it, and I can’t wait to see how it all winds up. The book is told from alternating perspectives, Tess and Eliot, with the ocassional chapter from a completely different, not entirely human, character…

I’ve also nearly finished my physical copy of Sisters of the Lost Marsh which was sent to me recently, and is such a beautiful middle grade read, inside and out. Lucy Strange writes such beautiful children’s fiction, and is genuinely a credit to the industry.

My ARC on the go is You’ll Be The Death Of Me by Karen M. McManus. I’m so ready for the upcoming blog tour! I’ve loved every book by this author, and this one is proving to be no different. It’s a bit of a slower start than some of the others but I’m intrigued by what’s coming next already.

What are you planning on reading next?
I need to read Killer Content for an upcoming blog tour and I’m looking forward to digging into that one when I’m done with You’ll Be The Death Of Me. Described as a mix of One Of Us Is Lying and Knives Out, I think it’s going to make for interesting reading.

Other than that one ready to go, I’m not actually completely sure what’s next for me! I’ve got several audiobooks downloaded on my phone ready to go, and I think I’ll just pick one at random when I finish The Devil Makes Three.

Thanks for stopping by today. Who knows where we’ll be this time next week, book wise, and house wise! Come back again soon. x

  1. Hooray for picking at random! I feel like I’m on a conveyor belt of challenges this month and that December will all be Christmas reads, so I might have to have a Randomary January or something! I’m currently reading Saga Land by Richard Fidler and Kari Gislason, a great book about Iceland and the sagas, and The End of Bias by Jessica Nordell, which gives concrete examples of how organisations are working against bias.
