#WWW Wednesday – 24 August, 2016

It’s time for WWW Wednesday! This is a blog hop hosted by Sam over at A World Of Words. Link up with us by commenting on Sam’s post for today, and just answer the three questions.


What have you recently finished reading?

thissavagesongcoverI finished This Savage Song by V. E. Schwab and while I liked the plot, I never really warmed to either of the main characters, so that let it down for me. I’ll go into more detail in my review, which will go up on Friday.

My reviews of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J. K. Rowling et al and Tallow by Karen Brooks both went up in the past week.

What are you currently reading?

birdmanswifecoverMy main focus at the moment is The Birdman’s Wife by Melissa Ashley, which I received from NetGalley. This is historical fiction based on the life of the illustrator Elizabeth Gould. I’m about a third of the way through and John Gould’s demands and taking for granted of his wife are making me frowny, but the fact that she was so overshadowed by her husband is partially why the author set out to the write the book, so I am glad this book exists.

I am still going on Votive by Karen Brooks and The Rook by Daniel O’Malley. I have about five hours left of Votive, so I’ll probably finish it in the next couple of days. I am still enjoying it but it’s way too long! I didn’t relaly feel like returning to the world of the Rook immediately after This Savage Song, hence checking out The Birdman’s Wife first.

What do you think you’ll read next?

paperandfirecoverPaper and Fire (The Great Library #2) by Rachel Caine is waiting for me at the library, so that will be next. The reviews have been mixed but I hope I like it as much as I liked the first one. After that, back to my extensive list of ebooks and physical books that I own and need to get through.

That’s all from me today. I’ve decided to take a bit of a hiatus from WIPpet Wednesday while I’m editing rather than writing. See you on your blogs!

      I actually didn’t mind August too much at the outset, but I ended up getting annoyed that he was trying to push past going dark when there was the possiblity of it putting so many people in danger. I just wanted him to get over his aversion to feeding!

      Great Library is good! I have a feeling from the reviews that Paper and Fire is another case of Middle Book Syndrome but I’m looking forward to revisiting these characters regardless.

    Not connecting with the characters can be a killer. Sorry it didn’t work for you with the Schwab. Happy reading and thanks for participating in WWW Wednesday!

    I really enjoyed Ink and Bone, although I found the war zone at the end a little too intense. I had no idea Paper and Fire was out already, so I’m definitely going to see if I can get it at my library.
    The birdman’s wife looks intriguing, I’ve added it to my goodreads tbr (there are about 70 books in there!)
