WWW Wednesday – 26 June 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?

This last couple of weeks have been really slow reading weeks. I can’t believe I’ve once again only got two books finished when there have been two weeks between posts.

I finished Get The Girls Out by Lucy Bloom, which is quite an inspiring memoir. Lucy goes against the grain and she isn’t ashamed to say it. I really enjoyed this one. Here’s my review.

Next I finished A Summer Escape and Strawberry Cake at the Cosy Kettle by Liz Eeles. The book was a sweet contemporary romance set in an English village. I reviewed it here.

Click to read my review of The Diviners by Libba Bray, which also went live since my last post.

I also ended up DNFing a book I had hoped I’d really love – David Mogo, Godhunter by Suyi Davies Okungbowa. This is an #ownvoices Nigerian urban fantasy, but I just couldn’t get into it. I didn’t engage with the characters and the various magic systems were confusing me.

What are you currently reading?

I am still going with Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray on audio. This is a lot more character driven than The Diviners. There is a mystery but there isn’t a race to solve it the same way there is in the first book. While I’m not enjoying it as much as the first book, I’m still over halfway through.

I am also reading an Australian modern classic, The Women In Black by Madeleine St John, which tells the story of several women working in the women’s clothing section of a department store in 1950s Sydney. This is sweet, but kind of on hold at the moment because ARCs.

What do you think you will read next?

I am going to start Beau and Bett by Kathryn Berla. This is a contemporary retelling of Beauty and the Beast. I am not familiar with this author so I have no idea what to expect. We’ll see how it goes.

What are you reading this week? 🙂

    Oh no, sorry to hear you DNF’d Mogo. I’m actually picking that up this week. Hopefully, I’ll have better luck with it, but we’ll see. I’ve heard some really mixed reviews about it. Glad to see you enjoyed The Diviners! I still need to pick up that series myself. Happy reading.

    Here’s my WWW post.
