#WWW Wednesday – 28 November 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?

Only one book finished  this week: Girl Reporter by Tansy Rayner Roberts. This is a superhero series and this book is from the perspective of a YouTuber/journalist, Friday Valentina, whoses mother broke the first story of superheroes in Australia back in the 80s. It was cute but I think I liked this author’s other stories more. Here’s my review.

I also reviewed All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrill. Click here to read that one.

I ended up DNFing Outrun the Wind by Elizabeth Tammi. The anachronisms were bothering me and I hadn’t connected to the characters after about 30% of the book, so I decided it was time.

What are you currently reading?

I started Truly , Devious by Maureen Johnson a couple of days ago. This is a YA murder mystery with parallel storylines in the present day and the 1930s. So far it’s just fine. I’ll get through it pretty quickly but I am not expecting to be wowed by it.

Still going with Wundersmith by Jessica Townsend and I hate to say it, but I think it’s going on a bit too long! I’m over 250 pages in and still have 200 pages to go and not much has really happened! But I still love the world of Nevermoor and a lot of the characters. I wish Jupiter was around a bit more, though.

I’m also still listening to The Midnight Watch by David Dyer. I was considering DNFing this one today, though I decided against it in the end. I am not a fan of one of the POV characters, and the pacing is very slow. I won’t DNF but I am thinking I might put it on hold for a while and listen to something else. 

What do you think you will read next?

This hasn’t changed from last week. I’m still planning to pick up Olmec Obituary by L.  J. M. Owen next. Cozy historical mystery!

What are you reading this week?

      It’s very much a series-opener. I’m around page 140 now and it’s mostly just been introducing us to the characters at the school and establishing the main character. The flashbacks to the 1930s are more interesting to me but they are less common.

      I loved Nevermoor, the first book in the series. I’m not sure if it’s planned as a duology, trilogy or what, but I’m hoping this is just a case of Middle Book Syndrome.

    I’m disappointed to hear that about Wundersmith! Maybe it will (quickly) pick up. I actually feel very free when I DNF a book (although, this is new for me). I don’t do negative reviews so when I come across a book which is nothing but negative I set it back into the world. There are too many wonderful things out there to read to waste our time on something we don’t enjoy! Here is my WWW: https://silverbuttonbooks.com/2018/11/28/www-wednesday-november-28-2018/
