#WWW Wednesday – April 25, 2018

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 slow reading week. The only thing  I finished  was a very short audio book, The Best Bear in All the World by Paul Bright, Brian Sibley, Jeanne Willis and Kate Saunders. This was written for the 90th Anniversary of Winnie-the-Pooh. Each author wrote a Winnie-the-Pooh story set during one of the seasons. They did a pretty good job of capturing what I love about the original books.

Last night I finally realised how much I was not enjoying The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon and decided to DNF. It was taking me far too long to read and I was looking for distractions. I actually wish the book had been more about Paige’s gang. I really liked Jaxon, Nick, et al. Didn’t care so much for Warden, and half the time I couldn’t keep track of the other characters because they were referred to by their numbers.

What are you currently reading? 

I am finally reading Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie. Why didn’t I read this book long ago?! I kept putting it off because I thought it would be dated and dry, but I am nearly halfway through it, having really only started it this morning. I’m trying to keep track of all the little details which will no doubt be key to the resolution, but I have no real hope of solving this case and I will wait patiently for the denouement.

What do you think you will read next?

I’m not quite sure just yet. I have set up my May-June TBR but I’m not really feeling like any of the titles on it right now. I’m just looking over my Australian Women Writers TBR shelf on GoodReads and thinking maybe Galax-Arena by Gillian Rubenstein might be a good option.  It’s aimed at an older-MG/lower-YA audience, so should be fairly digestible.

What are you reading this week?~ Emily

      I remember watching the version with David Suchet that was part of the TV series. But that was years ago, and I was glad I had forgotten the ending! I don’t think it would have been the same going into it knowing the outcome.

    I put off reading Murder on the Orient Express and ended up DNF. I have decided that I might just not like Cristie (I can’t believe I wrote that!) I cannot wait to read The Best Bear in the World though – I love Winnie the Pooh.

      That’s fair! I am pretty sure I’ve picked up some of her other books before and they have not grabbed me at all, so I totally get it. I am such a Pooh fan, too! I hold all the tribute-type books up to a pretty high standard. This one is probably the one that’s come the closest.

      I associate David Suchet with the role of Poirot so much I am not sure how I feel about the new movie, though I have heard good things. The book was very good, though!

    Yesterday the David Suchet version of Murder on the Orient Express was on the telly but I didn’t watch it because I was too sleepy. I saw the new movie with Sir Ken Branagh in December, I liked that one. I read the book years ago and enjoyed it but by the time I watched the movie I didn’t remember the ending, which made the experience all the more suprising for me. Happy reading!
