WWW Wednesday – October 4th, 2017

Welcome to WWW Wednesday which is currently being hosted by Sam @ Taking On A World of Words. It’s really just a place to do little update on what all you’ve been reading lately. Anyone is welcome to join, just leave a link to your post in the comments and be sure to give the appropriate credit to Sam!

The Three W’s are:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you’ll read next?

What are you currently reading?

  • Meddling Kids by Edgar Cantero – physical book
  • A Face Like Glass by Frances Hardinge – audiobook

I’m almost finished with Meddling Kids, probably by tonight actually. While the cover is what originally caught my eye, this book has turned into such an entertaining read! If you’re a big Scooby Doo fan and find yourself wondering what might’ve happened to the gang once they grew up, you’ll love this. It is an adult horror retelling so be aware that it’s not all rainbows and sunshine. Also, the image doesn’t do the cover justice – it’s so vibrant and gorgeous up against the white background. Cover porn, for sure!

I’m still listening to A Face Like Glass and am only about a fourth of the way through it. This is a really long audiobook and it’s been a little hard for me to focus on while listening to it at work. It’s very strange and whimsical, which requires a bit more attention than I’ve been able to give lately. Hopefully things will slow down so I can get back to it!

Artemis Awakening (Artemis Awakening, #1) by Jane Lindskold – 3/5 stars, REVIEW

This book was purchased on a whim from BookOutlet, but luckily it turned out entertaining enough to validate spending the money on it. I do own the sequel and plan on getting to it in the next couple of months.

What do you think you’ll read next?

  • One Dark Throne (One Dark Crown, #2) by Kendare Blake
  • One of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus

The next book I plan to pick up is going to be One Dark Throne. The first book in the series was alright, but I loved the cliffhanger it ended on and so I can’t wait to see where the story goes next. Then for my first read to start off the Halloween Readathon, I decided to go with One of Us is Lying. Sounds like such a page-turner!

  1. Meddling Kids looks awesome! I haven’t read the Kendare Blake series, but I’ve been meaning to pick it up. I’m mostly waiting to see how people will respond to the sequel. :p Happy reading!

  2. I absolutely love the sound of Meddling Kids but I’m wondering whether I really want to know what there up to or if would be better to use my own imagination. By now they must be in an old folks home surely 😂

    I’ve got the first book in One Dark Crown but have been wary as the reviews seemed lukewarm. I might wait to see how everyone gets on with book 2

    1. Haha! Well if it makes you feel better, it’s not actually the same kids. Basically more of a retelling inspired by the original tv show. It’s a lot of fun!

      Yeah, I can totally understand that. I’m hoping this second book actually dives more into the action and gets even darker!

    1. I know! I know a lot of people had figured out the twist but I wasn’t prepared for it at all… I think One of Us is Lying might be the book I’m most interested in starting. It sounds like perfect October book!
