WWW Wednesday – 2nd November 2022

Hello hello, and welcome or welcome back to my little bookish corner of the internet. It’s the first Wednesday of November, and I thought it would be a good time to do a WWW Wednesday as it’s been so long since I did one.

WWW Wednesday is a common post on book blogs, one that you can follow and join in with easily, by answering three easy 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?
In the final hours of Halloween, I finished reading the latest Aveline Jones book, The Vanishing of Aveline Jones. I absolutely love this middle grade mystery / horror series, so was thrilled to be approved for an eARC of book three. I absolutely devoured it, as I have the previous two, and read it in two sittings in the midst of a storm with a hot cup of tea. Perfect. My review will be coming up soon, but in the meantime, here’s my reviews of the first two:
The Haunting of Aveline Jones
The Bewitching of Aveline Jones

What are you currently reading?
I’ve carried two books over with me from October, one being an ARC and one a physical book I had hoped to enjoy for spooky season. The ARC on the go at the moment is The Mysterious Case of the Alperton Angels from best seller Janice Hallett (you can read my reviews of her previous books, The Appeal, and The Twyford Code, as well my interview with her). It’s taking me a bit longer to work my way through it as I’m fighting my instinct to just absorb it. Hallett has an absolute skill of making the time disappear around you when you’re reading, so I’m limiting myself to when I pick this one up, as sadly there are way too many practical things I can’t avoid at present. What I’ve read, however, confirms that this will remain an auto-buy author forever for me.

What are you planning on reading next?
With it being NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month – when you write 50K words in the month of Novemeber, for those of you not familiar) I’m not setting myself too many challenges reading wise this month, especially as we’re also supposed to be moving as long as everything falls into place! However, I do really hope that I can pick up Marple now I’ve (finally) got my hands on it. This collection of Agatha Christie inspired short stories by modern crime writers is a book I’ve been highly anticipated, and when it went missing in the post I was devastated! But – it is now on my bedside table, ready to go.

Thanks for stopping by today! It’s so nice to jump back into doing these posts. While I’m going to have a bit of an intense month ahead of me, I’m aiming to post at least three times a week for now, and you can make sure you don’t miss a single post by following my blog.

Are you doing NaNo this year? What are you reading at the moment? Let me know in the comments.

  1. Hope your move goes well and good luck with NaNoWriMo. I used it to finish a nonfiction study I was writing one year, very handy! I just finished “Follow the Rabbit-Proof Fence” by Doris Pilkington / Nugi Garimara and am reading “Black Victorians” by Keshia N. Abraham and John Woolf. Not sure what I’m picking up next!
