WWW Wednesday – 01 May 2019

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 P Is For Pearl by Eliza Henry Jones, which is a lot more character driven than books I usually read. But the coastal town vibe was so well done and I really liked the characters so I still enjoyed it. I’ll have a review up soon.

Click to read my review of The Doll Maker, book four in Celine Jeanjean’s The Viper and the Urchin series. This was released yesterday and might be my favourite one of the series so far!

What are you currently reading?

Still listening to Enchantee by Gita Trelease. The last audio books I read were A Thousand Pieces of You and Ten Thousand Skies Above You by Claudia Gray and I was actively cleaning or folding laundry in order to have more time to listen. I… am not having the same desire with this book. It’s going to take me a little while to get through, I think.

I am also reading an ARC of Lucid by Kristy Fairlamb, about a teenager cursed to dream the final moments of the dying. I’m about 20% of the way through and there have been some interesting characters introduced and some pretty nasty dream descriptions, but I’m kind of waiting for the story to get going. There’s a weekend away with friends coming up so I suspect that might be where things start getting interestinig.

What do you think you will read next?

I have accidentally ended up with eight library books out at once! Though a few of them are ready to return, several are for my Children’s Book of the Year reading challenge, which I need to get back to. I think I’ll start with The Things That Will Not Stand by Michael Gerard Bauer.

What are you reading this week? 🙂

      I think it only came out fairly recently and there was a fair bit of hype for it. I had seen it around quite a bit which was why I clicked when I saw it on Audible.

    I saw Lucid on NG and thought about requesting it, but it just didn’t catch enough of my attention where I wasn’t sure if I would enjoy it. I’ll be interested to hear what you think when you finish it. 🙂 Sounds like a slow beginning.

    I have … slightly less library books out than you. But only slightly. xD And none of them are children’s books. Oh, dear. Hazards of wait lists, I suppose.

    Here’s my WWW post.

    I’ve been seriously tempted by Enchantee, based mostly on the cover, but the reviews I’ve spotted have been decidedly lukewarm. Hopefully it’ll pick up for you.

    Lucid does sound interesting, this is actually the first I’ve heard of it but I may go check it out.

      I hope so! It feels a bit like two different stories at the moment – the time the MC spends at Versailles and the friendship/romance blooming between her and a hot air balloonist. I’m assuming he’s going to turn out to be a revolutionary or something and that’s how everything’s going to come together and fall apart at the same time.
