WWW Wednesday – 15 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.

First of all, sorry if I linked you to my writing blog rather than this one last week! I do blog hops on both blogs on a Wednesday and totally wasn’t paying attention to which link was on my clipboard!

What have you recently finished reading?

I finally finished Enchantee by Gita Trelease! My review will be up on Friday. I enjoyed it enough and I thought it tied up really well, but overall it was a three star read. Might have been partly because it took me so long to get through?

I also finished His Name Was Walter by Emily Rodda. I spent the whole book feeling a bit reading slumpy and thinking this would be a three-star read at most, and then things sort of all tied together in the last few chapters and got me right in the feels. To the point I teared up a little. So that was nice.

Only one review posted this week: The Things That Will Not Stand by Michael Gerard Bauer.

What are you currently reading?

I have started reading The Extremely Inconvenient Adventures of Bronte Mettlestone by Jaclyn Moriarty (yes, sister of Liane for the curious). Jaclyn is an author I keep going back to, even though I don’t always enjoy her books. So far, this one is giving me Nevermoor vibes in that it’s quite lighthearted and whimsical and a bit nonsense (in the best way), but I suspect it will also get me in the feels at some point.

I also started listening to Emily the Strange: the Lost Days by Rob Reger on a whim. It’s rather bizarre, kind of a Lemony Snicket/Welcome to Night Vale mashup. Strange things happen but it’s all delivered with a completely straight face. I think Emily might be a clone or something?

What do you think you will read next?

Not sure what I’m in the mood for. Also Bronte Nettlestone is quite long so there’s a good chance I won’t finish it this week with everything else I’ve got going on. I’ll also finish Emily the Strange pretty soon but I have no idea what I fancy audio book-wise, either.

What are you reading this week? 🙂

    All these books are new to me. Emily the Strange does sound interesting, I hope it turns out to be good read for you. Enjoy your books this week, Emily. Happy reading.

      I finished it today and I’m still not quite sure what it was about, but it was an entertaining bus riding listen, definitely. I’d be interested to hear what you think!

    Glad to see that His Name Was Walter turned around at the end!

    Oh, look what you’ve gone and done. You mentioned Nevermoor, and now I’m *required* to check this book out. D: Blatant abuse of blogger powers to inflate my TBR! xD It sounds like a really cute book.

    Here’s my WWW post.

      Do you know, I thought of you as I was writing that! XD There is no Jupiter equivalent in this one, though! (though that is mostly because the focus is really on the women of Bronte’s family, which I am down with). But it’s still quite cute!

        Oooh, that’s very tricksy of you. xD Though, I’m sure I’m not alone in seeing that comparison and needing to read it. It seems like almost everyone I’ve talked to about Nevermoor so far has loved it lol.

        That sounds interesting, though! To be honest, I don’t read many books with a Jupiter-esque character. xD That’s what makes him so exciting.


Talk to me! :)
