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 listening to Emily the Strange: the Lost Days by Rob Reger not long after Wednesday’s WWW. It was amusing, but very bizarre. I’m still not sure what it was actually about. Due to my confusion, I’m not planning to write a proper review of this one.
I finished The Extremely Inconvenient Adventures of Bronte Mettlestone by Jaclyn Moriarty about an hour ago. It was sweet but sort of wore thin after a while… the cutesy, whimsical style didn’t really work when there were nearly 500 pages. I’ll have a review up soon.
Two reviews this week: His Name Was Walter by Emily Rodda and Enchantee by Gita Trelease.
What are you currently reading?
I started The Toymakers by Robert Dinsdale because That. Cover. Some of the reviews are comparing it to The Night Circus and I can see why. I actually started the audio book first but the narrator’s voice was annoying me so I switched to the ebook. But I really like the magical descriptions of Papa Jack’s Emporium so far.
What do you think you will read next?
I don’t really know what I’m in the mood for at the moment, but I just realised that The Red Labyrinth by Meredith Tate comes out on June 4, so I probably need to pick up the ARC pretty soon. Particularly considering I don’t know how much reading time I’m going to have over the next week or so.
What are you reading this week? 🙂

The Toymakers sounds really interesting. I will have to add it to my TBR. Happy reading!

Look forward to your review of Bronte Middlestone. I have The Night Circus, but I haven’t read it yet, so I can’t really use that as a mental comparison, but The Toymakers sounds extremely interesting! Added it to my TBR. You know, it seems like every time I come here, my TBR suffers … I hope you’re happy. 😛
Here’s my WWW post.
This is the second post I’ve seen today mentioning The Red Labyrinth. I finished it a couple of weeks ago, and really enjoyed it. I’ll be looking for the sequel when it’s released. Happy Reading, Emily! https://teripolen.com/2019/05/22/www-wednesday-what-am-i-reading-amreading-25/
I so distinctly recognize Emily the Strange, yet I don’t believe I’ve read anything to do with that book or character before. It’s a little uncanny. Your account of the book as bizarre actually has me more curious about checking it out though. Have a good week!
She was a brand mascot (I can’t remember what for) in the 90s and early 2000s, her image was everywhere! You probably saw her on backpacks and stuff!
If you like stuff like Welcome to Night Vale, I think you’d like the book.

Oh yes, you’re right! I do recall seeing her on backpacks and stuff.
Also I love Night Vale, so I should definitely check it out then.
The Toymakers sounds absolutely fascinating! I’ll be looking forward to your review on that one. Have a wonderful week and happy reading!
Nice choices. I’ve looked at The Toymaker a few times but never gotten around to reading it.
