t’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 had a good week this week, polishing off two books from my April-June TBR. I’m not quite going to get everything ticked off but I’ll come close! The books I read were The Mystery and Maplemead Castle by Kitty French, which was just plain fun, and Beneath the Apple Blossom by Kate Frost, which was a lot heavier, but I couldn’t put it down.
I also posted reviews of Ensnared by Rita Stradling and Beneath the Apple Blossom. Click the titles to read them.
What are you currently reading?
No movement on Dracula by Bram Stoker this week. I’ll get back to it in July.
I have listened to the majority of The Prestige by Christopher Priest now. I was a bit worried that the second half was going to drag (I thought it was heading towards the climax then realised that I was only at 45%) but it is still interesting and I’m about two-thirds of the way through now.
And I have finally started reading The Ship Beyond Time by Heidi Heilig, the sequel to The Girl From Everywhere, which I read about 18 months ago and reviewed here. I haven’t had much time to read so I’m still only at about 15%, but it’s starting to get going. I am worried it might be focusing more on the romance than the time travel, but some of the reviews assure me this is not really the case, so fingers crossed.
What do you think you’ll read next?
I’m going to try reading The Bloodshade Encounters/The Songspinner by K. C. Finn. This is two novellas in one volume, they are prequels, I guess? to The Book of Shade, the first part of the Shadeborn series. I’ve read about 10% and I have a bad feeling this is going to suffer a bit from it’s-been-too-long-since-I-read-the-first-one syndrome; I can’t really remember who the characters are so reading their backstories isn’t meaning much. But I did buy it so I’m going to give it a bit more of a go.
