WWW Wednesday – 8th August 2018

Happy Wednesday everyone!

It’s Wednesday again which means it’s time for WWW Wednesday. WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted by Sam over at Taking on a World of Words.

I’ve been super busy with work and personal life recently so I’ve had a slow reading week. I hope you still enjoy this update and don’t forget to enter my giveaway!

I’m nearly done with P. G. Bell’s The Train to Impossible Places! I’m really enjoying it and will post a review by the end of the week.

I’ve just finished Cassandra Parkin’s The Winter’s Child and reviewed it here.

This week I also read a graphic novel/memoir by Maggie Thrash called Lost Soul, Be At Peace.

Lost Soul, Be At Peace is part memoir and part ghost story. Maggie Thrash walks us through some of her experiences during her late teens and how they have come to shape her as a person and understand her family.

This is a wonderful graphic novel – I did not anticipate the ending at all and it made me quite emotional. Sometimes it’s easy to forget that those who love us most (or should love us most) also had their own childhood experiences that shaped them.

I also enjoyed the illustrations; the drawings have a beautiful flow and lots of depth and dimension. If you want to read something different, I recommend this book.

What do you think you’ll read next?

“The Clockwork Crow is a mysterious gothic Christmas tale set in a frost-bound Victorian country mansion.”

— Taken from Book Depository

Last week I received Catherine Fisher’s The Clockwork Crow from the lovely folks at Firefly Press. I am very excited to read this book and I’ve had to use all my willpower not to start it immediately. Mystery, gothic, Christmas, Victorian – what more can a book need?

Apologies for the slightly washed out photo, it does not do the cover justice.

  1. I love that you included a graphic novel. I don’t think they get enough love! The Clockwork Crow has a gorgeous cover 😍 I’m reading Scythe after just finishing Final Girls. No idea what I’m going to read after Scythe yet!

    1. I have to be honest, I’ve only recently discovered GNs and I feel like I’ve been missing out all this time! I’ve had some corkers from NetGalley recently, including: Sheets (Brenna Thummler, still available), The Music Box (Carbone/Gije – archived), and Lightness (Catherine Meurisse, archived). All worth checking out IMHO 🙂

      I would love to know what you think of Scythe, it’s on my TBR list!
