#WWW Wednesday – April 25, 2018

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? 

It’s been a slow reading week. The only thing  I finished  was a very short audio book, The Best Bear in All the World by Paul Bright, Brian Sibley, Jeanne Willis and Kate Saunders. This was written for the 90th Anniversary of Winnie-the-Pooh. Each author wrote a Winnie-the-Pooh story set during one of the seasons. They did a pretty good job of capturing what I love about the original books.

Last night I finally realised how much I was not enjoying The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon and decided to DNF. It was taking me far too long to read and I was looking for distractions. I actually wish the book had been more about Paige’s gang. I really liked Jaxon, Nick, et al. Didn’t care so much for Warden, and half the time I couldn’t keep track of the other characters because they were referred to by their numbers.

What are you currently reading? 

I am finally reading Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie. Why didn’t I read this book long ago?! I kept putting it off because I thought it would be dated and dry, but I am nearly halfway through it, having really only started it this morning. I’m trying to keep track of all the little details which will no doubt be key to the resolution, but I have no real hope of solving this case and I will wait patiently for the denouement.

What do you think you will read next?

I’m not quite sure just yet. I have set up my May-June TBR but I’m not really feeling like any of the titles on it right now. I’m just looking over my Australian Women Writers TBR shelf on GoodReads and thinking maybe Galax-Arena by Gillian Rubenstein might be a good option.  It’s aimed at an older-MG/lower-YA audience, so should be fairly digestible.
