Hello everyone! I’m wondering if you could do me a favour? Next year I’m going to be trekking through the Himalayas to raise money for the UN Women National Committee and their work in Nepal assisting women and girls who were displaced after the 2015 earthquake. I’m only $40 away from my first milestone of $1000 raised. Could you donate and help me reach that first target? Any amount would be very much appreciated!
I also have a Facebook page set up where you can see updates of my preparation and fundraising journey. I’d love to see you there!
It’s time for WWW Wednesday! 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?
It’s been a bit of a slow reading week this week. I’ve finished one print book and one audio. The print book was The Year of Freaking Out by Sarah Walker. It was sweet but a bit dated. I reviewed it here.
I also finished The Art of Purring by David Michie. This is the second book in the series The Dalai Lama’s Cat which teaches Buddhist methods of mindfulness and paths to happiness through the perspective of HHC, His Holiness’ Cat. It was cute but not quite as good as the first one, I thought. Though this could be because David Michie was also the narrator and he wasn’t as good a narrator/performer as he is a writer.
What are you currently reading?
My main read at the moment is 1984 by George Orwell. This is a re-read for me; I’m going to see the critically-acclaimed stage show next week and I wanted to refresh my memory.
I am still reading Dracula by Bram Stoker and The Ship Beyond Time by Heidi Heilig, though there has been little movevment on any of them recently.
What do you think you’ll read next?
I really should get back to the two books I just said I’ve had little movement on, but I’m really tempted to start some of my ARCs. Particularly Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody, which looks awesome! Check out that cover. (Actually, my ARC has a way less pretty cover, but I’m just ignoring that).
What are you reading this week? 🙂
P.S. If you feel so inclined, head on over to my writing blog, Letting the Voices Out, where I’ve shared an excerpt from my current WIP today.

I have seen Daughter of the Burning City everywhere lately! I can’t wait to hear your thoughts.

I think it’s going to be a good one, but I don’t want to psych myself up about it too much and ruin it!
Re-reading 1984 would be an interesting journey…I’m considering it. Thanks for sharing, and here’s MY WWW POST
It certainly is. I think I’m appreciating it a bit more than I did when I was younger.
I read Daughter of the Burning City last week and really enjoyed. Much darker than I expected. I hope it lives up to expectations.

Ooh, some darkness is good. I have a feeling I will start it before I finish 1984, particularly as it is released next week.
