WWW Wednesday – 03 July 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?

Better results this week than my last couple of WWW posts.

 I finished Beau and Bett by Kathryn Berla and… I don’t even know what I felt. It wasn’t a bad book. It was readable. But it was just sort of… there. I didn’t really feel like it did anything particularly interesting or different. So I have to really think about this one before I review it. Maybe I won’t give it a rating? That might help.

While I’ve been staying with my parents this week, I finally read The Lion, the WItch and the Wardrobe by C. S. Lewis for the first time. I watched the BBC series a lot as a kid but never got into the books at that point. I intended to read the whole series ago and never got any further than the Magician’s Nephew. Maybe now I’ll finally get back to it properly.

What are you currently reading?

Iam reading an ARC of Mother Tongue by Julie Mayhew, a YA novel set around the events of the Beslan School Siege in 2004 (look it up). So far it seems it’s more about the personal effects on a family, rather than the wider political situation, which I appreciate.

I am still going with Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray on audio. I haven’t actually listened to it much at all this week because I’ve been staying with my parents and being sociable. 😉

What do you think you will read next?

All right, you lot! Hold me to The Horse and His Boy by C. S. Lewis. I will finish the Chroncles of Narnia before the end of the year!

What are you reading this week? 🙂




P. S. If you’re keen to read an excerpt of my current WIP, come on over to my writing blog to see what I’m working on.

      They are rather lengthy! I’m debating whether to launch straight into the next one or read a couple of other things first. I think maybe a gap might be wise.

    I’d been very tempted by Beau and the Bett but it sounds like my decision not to request from NetGalley may have been the right one. I’ve read a few books like that, not bad just not particularly stand out.

    I never read the whole Narnia series either! I had a copy of all the stories in one book when I was younger, but it was just too heavy to pick up and I never did finish it because of that haha. Have a wonderful week and happy reading!

      My partner has a combined edition like that! He has been reading it recently, and it just looks so uncomfortable. I don’t know how he does it. I’m sticking to the individual copies of each story, they’re much more manageable.

    I hope you’re enjoying the Narnia series! I never did finish it, either, even though I now have the complete series (well, it’s hubby’s, but I’m sure he’ll share), and I keep meaning to read it again. xD

    Boo to being sociable, but yay for seeing your parents? I mean, maybe. I assume you like them, if you were willing to go visit. xD Enjoy!

    Here’s my WWW post.
