WWW Wednesdays

I’ve been watching some of my favourite book bloggers do this meme every week, and I love reading their lists. So I thought I’d give it a go!

Welcome to WWW Wednesday!

This meme is hosted by Taking on a World of Words.

And it goes like this:

You answer the “Three Ws”, and then leave a link to your post over on Taking on a World of Words for others to look at.

The Three Ws:

(1) What are you currently reading?

(2) What did you recently finish reading?

(3) What do you think you’ll read next?

If you get a second, check out some of the other awesome WWW posts. My favourites so far today are…

What are you currently reading?

One Foot in the Grove was recommended to me by Angela @ Books and Opinions and so far I’m enjoying it! It’s a cozy mystery set in Southern Georgia, a little bit cheesy, very un-like my usual taste in classic British mysteries, and very relaxing.

The Sentinal’s Reign is an ARC which was very kindly given to me by the lovely author, Suzanne Rogerson. I’ve just started it, and since I loved the first one have high hopes for the second! It comes out on Friday (29th June), so I’ll post the review up then.

What did you recently finish reading?

I received an ARC of Tower of the Arkein from the publisher, and reviewed it on GoodReads. I didn’t particularly enjoy it because it was very male-centric, a little bit sexist – lots of naked slave girls, that kind of thing. That being said, it was very well-written and the worldbuilding was excellent – so I didn’t feel I could be too harsh.

I received an ARC of The Clash: All the Albums, All the Songs from the publisher and you can find my review here. It was good. Very much for the fans, if you know what I mean, but the images were stellar.

Why Mummy Drinks was awesome. I loved it. Laugh out loud funny. I highly recommend it! And you can find my review here.

I received an ARC of How to Be Successful Without Hurting Men’s Feelings from the publisher, and thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s released on 30th October, so my review will be up then!

What do you think you’ll read next?

I received an ARC of Pyre at the Eyreholme Trust from the publisher, and am looking forward to reading it. It’s released on 4th July, so my review will be up then!

I also received an ARC of The Great Illusion: An Informal History of Prohibition from the publisher. It’s released 18th July, and I’ll either review it here or on Goodreads.

Everyone has raved and raved about Circe. So, I’ve cracked, I’m going to read it. My friend and I are starting our own mini book club, which we will be blogging about on here. And that starts 1st July, so expect to here more about that then…

Why Mummy Swears, the follow-up the Why Mummy Drinks, comes out 12th July. I wish I had an ARC, but I am just not important enough. So I’ve pre-ordered it. Having to pay for own books… What nonsense is this?! I will definitely be reviewing it – I would expect that post on the 13th July, because I have every intention of dropping everything else I’m doing to read it!

  3. I’ve been keeping my eye on Pyre as well! (That art deco cover!) Look forward to your thoughts on it. 🙂 And my brain interpreted “Why Mummy Drinks/Swears” as a book about an Egyptian and not a mother “mum”…

      Hahaha i feel like that would be an excellent book. I can see the blurb now: “A swearing mummy upsets an entire coach of tourists at the British Museum. They threaten to send him back to Egypt if he doesn’t mind his language”. Brilliant!

      Same! Everyone raves about it. So I’m both apprehensive and excited, weirdly…
