#WWW Wednesday – 19 December 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.

I’m posting quite early this week, since I’m taking advantage of a shift on the reading room desk at work to get this written up. Tomorrow is my last day of work for the year and I’m already in holiday mode, so very little work is really being done!

What have you recently finished reading?

I finished Sixty Seconds by Jesse Blackadder. This was a 3.5* read for me. The plot, pacing and writing were good, but I never completely connected with the characters. Posted my review here

That’s the only thing I finished this week but I also reviewed Olmec Obituary by L. J. M. Owen. You can read that here.

Getting these two reviews up meant that I completed my 2018 Australian Women Writers Challenge, which was to read 20 books by Australian women, including two by Indigenous authors and two by LGBTQI* authors.

What are you currently reading?

I’m currently reading The Enchanted Sonata by Heather Dixon Wallwork. This is quite a sweet story. I love that the magic system is music-based! Though it does make me want to go and throw the Nutcracker retelling I started writing years ago in the bin, since this one is so much better than what I was doing.

I’m also listening to Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor. I’ve never read any of Taylor’s other books but everyone seems to rave about this one so I picked it up when Audible recommended it. So far my only real complaint is how few women there are compared to men. But Strange is a librarian and researcher, so he has kind of stolen my heart. ❤

What do you think you will read next?

I really need to finish Wundersmith by Jessica Townsend so I can pass it on to my niece at Christmas. I think I’m about halfway through it? I’m flying to my parents’ on Friday so my plan is for it to be my airport/plane book. After that, I’m not sure whether to read another Christmas-y book or start on my January ARCs.

What are you reading this week?

Have a great holiday season, everyone, regardless of what you celebrate!
