#WWW Wednesday – July 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.

wwwwednesday

I didn’t post last week because it would literally have been a repeat of the week before’s post. This has not been a great reading month! Oh well.

What have you recently finished reading?

I read The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime by Mark Haddon over the weekend. I had intended to read it before we saw the stage show at the start of July but never got around to it. It’s a really fascinating book. I kinda wish I had made time to read it before the show since I knew exactly what was going to happen, but I still flew through and really enjoyed it.

What are you currently reading?

My reading has been a bit all over the place recently so I’ve got a few things on the go at once when I wouldn’t normally.

I am nearly halfway through the fourth Frey & McGray audio book, The Loch of the Dead. One of the issues I had with the third book, namely that Frey and McGray spend a lot of time apart and therefore aren’t bantering or bickering, is also an issue here. But this plot is at least a bit more interesting than the third one was.

I am also halfway through Alive! by Loren D. Estleman, which I picked up from the library purely because of the cover. And also because I’m an archivist and the main character is an archivist. The mystery is fairly straightforward but it is a good one for classic film buffs with all the trivia peppered through it.

I also started The Other Alice by Michelle Harrison just this afternoon while I was out and forgot to take Alive!, so I needed to read something on my phone. I think I will really enjoy this one. I am going to try to finish Alive! before I really commit to this one, though.

I am technically still reading Blackwing by Ed McDonald and All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque but they’re on hold for a bit..

What do you think you will read next? 

I still have Beauty and the Werewolf  by Mercedes Lackey out from the library, so I think that will be next.

What are you reading this week?~ EmilyP.S. If you’re  interested, head over to my writing blog, Letting the Voices Out, to read a snippet of my current WIP.

      I think it would be a huge challenge! The gimmick of the show is that Christopher turned his book into a play for school and we are watching the performance of it, and there are lots of fancy lighting effects and projections, but it’s pretty much all down to the actors to really sell it.

      Nope, you just use the Kindle app and it syncs between devices. This occassion I didn’t have my tablet because my main reads at the moment were all physical books so I was caught out.

      The play is quite conceptual so I think it would be entirely possible to enjoy one without necessarily enjoying the other, depending on what you tend to prefer in a story. I was fortunate enough to enjoy both.

    Thank the good Lord for the Kindle app on my phone! There have been many a time that I have found myself stuck and without a book (nightmare). That means I can continue whatever book I already started on my Kindle. None of your books have crossed my desk but I have several myself that I have to put on pause and get some finished. Have a great week! Here is my WWW: https://silverbuttonbooks.com/2018/07/25/www-wednesday-july-25-2018/
