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.
This has been a good reading week for me! I hit my GoodReads 2018 Challenge of 75 books. Some of them were shorter reads, but I liked them nonetheless.
I do have to apologise if I don’t get around to many of your posts this week. I’m doing an intensive course at uni this week, and while we’re over halfway, it’s still pretty full-on.
What have you recently finished reading?
I finished All Aces by Ellie Marney and thus the Circus Hearts series. I didn’t enjoy this one quite as much as the previous two but it was a good ending to the series. You can read my review here.
I then went on to read A Ghost in the Glamour by Elizabeth Hunter. This is the first installment in the Linx and Bogie series, which was recommended to me by a colleague. Bogie is the ghost of a LAPD investigator who was killed in action in 1952, and he is somehow attached to a medium called Linx, who is an artist in the present day.
Last but not least, I finished All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrill on audio. I liked this one! The time travel stuff wasn’t too complicated but at the same time, it told a really good story.
I also posted my review of Sugar Spells by Lola Dodge, the second in the Spellwork Syndicate series. I loved this one; I think it was one of those times when the perfect book comes at the perfect time.
What are you currently reading?
I finally started my ARC of Outrun the Wind by Elizabeth Tammi. I’ve had this for months so of course I’m risking not finishing it before the release date. I am only on Chapter 2 but it’s a queer retelling of the legend of Atalanta if that’s something you might be interested in.
I am also reading Wundersmith by Jessica Townsend because I’m currently doing a lot of screen time and needed a paperback to give my eyes a rest. I honestly don’t know how Jessica Townsend does it. This one is just as delightful as Nevermoor! I am just filled with joy and wonder every time I pick it up.
On audio, I have started The Midnight Watch by David Dyer. This is historical fiction about the SS Californian, which was nearby when the Titanic sank and did not go to assist. My mum recommended this to me months ago and so far it is really fascinating. The chapters alternate between a journalist after the fact trying to figure out why the ship never responded, and chapters from the perspective of the Californian crew immediately after the tragedy.
What will you read next?
I’ve just checked NetGalley and decided it will be ‘Twas the Knife Before Christmas by Jacqueline Frost, which I’m hoping will stand alone even though it’s a second in a series. I’ve realised it releases a few days before Outrun the Wind, and if I skip reading the prequel, I might just have them both read in time for their releases. And then I can read the prequel to this closer to Christmas.
What are you reading this week?

I am curious about All Our Yesterdays. Enjoy your week, and here’s MY WWW POST
I’m really intrigued by The Midnight Watch. It sounds really good. Can’t wait to hear what you think once you have finished it. Congrats on completing your Goodreads challenge! Here is my WWW post: https://greatmorrisonmigration.wordpress.com/2018/11/14/www-wednesdays-november-14-2018/
I’m so excited for Wundersmith! I was so jealous that it came out in the UK before it did in the States. Hopefully I’ll get mine soon!
Here’s what I’m reading instead: https://litlistening.com/2018/11/14/www-wednesday-weekly-wrap-up-nov-14/
I have Nevermore on my TBR and now I am so excited! Wundersmith looks perfect for me. Maybe I have time to read it before it comes out here. https://silverbuttonbooks.com/2018/11/14/www-wednesday-november-14-2018/
