#WWW Wednesday – August 01, 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?

I finished reading The Other Alice by Michelle Harrison on Thursday, despite saying I should finish my other reads first. This was an interesting read but I felt some of the world-building wasn’t quite fleshed out enough. I posted a review here.

I then finished Alive! by Loren D. Estleman, which was fine. I was reminded that there is a difference between thrillers, which I love, and straight crime fiction, which I find less exciting. This is definitely crime fiction. One for the film buffs, though.

I also posted me review of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time here.

What are you currently reading?

At time of writing this post (Tuesday morning), I am a few chapters into Beauty and the Werewolf by Mercedes Lackey. I’m pretty sure this is going to be incredibly predictable, but in a cute way that I can forgive. I do like that the titular werewolf isn’t muscular and strong and arrogant, but shy and nerdy and he wears glasses.

I have returned to Station Eleven by Emily St John Mandel on audio. It’s an interesting story but I’m waiting to see how all the story threads come together, and at the moment it’s trudging along a bit. I think part of that may be the narrator, though? Anyway, I think I’m about halfway through at this point, so I should get through it in the next week or so.

What do you think you will read next?

Whether or not I read the other Mercedes Lackey book I have from the library will depend on how I feel at the end of Beauty and the Werewolf. In the meantime, my other library book is Behind the Scenes at the Museum of Baked Beans: an Odd-ysey by Hunter Davies, which explores the weird and wonderful museums of the UK. So that should be fun and interesting.

    Ok I really want to read Behind the Scenes now. I hadn’t heard of it and am not aware of many weird museums in the UK but I’m gonna have to investigate.

    Station Eleven has been sitting on my kindle forever but I’ve never gotten around to reading. Will be interested to hear what you think.
