#WWW Wednesday – 10 May, 2017

Hello friends. I hope you don’t mind me start this post with a non-book-related topic, but as this is the most visited blog post of my week, it makes sense to add it here. If you’ve followed my last few Sunday Summary posts, you would know that I recently registered to take part in the UN  Women Trek for Rights 2018. Money raised for this event will go towards helping women survivors of the 2015 Nepal earthquakes.

I am aiming to raise $3500 AU over the next twelve months and I’m hoping you can help me. If you are willing and able, please click the banner below to go to my fundraising page and make a donation. Any donation, no matter how small, is appreciated!

And now we return to your regularly schduled WWW Wednesday post. This blog hop is hosted by Sam over at A World Of Words. Link up with us by commenting on Sam’s post for this week, and just answer the three questions.

What have you recently finished reading?

The only thing finished this week was a re-read: How the Aliens from Alpha Centauri Invaded my Maths Class and Turned Me Into a Writer… and How You Can Be One, Too by Jackie French. I actually read this when I was around the target age (it’s more MG/very YA). I honestly still remember some of the advice given, so I thought it was time for a refresher when I found it on the library shelves. I was actually looking for Stephen King’s On Writing, which wasn’t there, though the catalogue claimed it should have been. Another day, then.

What are you currently reading?

haven’t made much progress with  Dracula by Bram Stoker over the last week. I think this will be one where I read a bit here and there in amongst other reads.

I have finally returned to Heart of Brass by Felicity Banks, which has been sitting on my on-hold shelf for the last three months. I’m not finding it that engaging (partly why it got put aside in the first place), but it’s only short, so I’m going to finish it this week.

What do you think you’ll read next?

Not sure at the moment, though since I’m trying to finish things on my on-hold shelf, The Devil’s Prayer by Luke Gracias might be next. I read about 5% of it on my phone when I didn’t have whatever physical book I was reading on me at the time, but again, it’s been weeks since then.

I do have a bunch of things on my Kindle that I want to read despite them not even being on my immediate TBR list. But I’m trying to ignore them.

What are you reading this week? 🙂

    I’ve been meaning to read Stephen King’s On Writing too! Dracula took me a while to get through when I read it a few years ago. I don’t think I really got into it properly but it was an interesting read. It’s a shame Heart of Brass isn’t engaging. Hopefully the next book you pick up will be! 🙂

      Thanks! I have finished Heart of Brass now, though Dracula will be a slow-and-steady one, I think. I am back at the library studying today and On Writing was back on the shelf, so i’ve picked it up. Should be my next read. 😀

      Thanks! I picked it up today I have a vague feeling I started it years ago just sitting in the library while I was waiting for someone, but it was before I was really serious about my own writing, so I wasn’t too worried at that point. I’m looking forward to sitting down with it properly.
