Good afternoon bookworms and welcome to another WWW Wednesday post!

For those who don’t know, the three W’s are:

  • What are you currently reading?

  • What did you finish reading recently?

  • What do you think you’ll read next?

thursday murder club by richard osman

The Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman

I am a little ashamed to admit that I am still working on this one. I am listening to the audiobook and while I am enjoying the laugh out loud narrative I am really not feeling very invested in the book and I am only listening to a few chapters a day. I am 95% of the way through now so I am confident I will finish over the next day or two.

these violent delights by chloe gong

These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong

I started this one last night and I am already 100 pages in. Not a lot has happened so far but we’ve been introduced to the main characters and a nasty backstory has been hinted at. We’ve also seen a little taster of a monster and plenty of violence so I am really enjoying it so far and I am confident this is going to be an excellent read!

harry potter and the prisoner of azkaban j.k rowling

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K.  Rowling

Still slowly but surely working my way through a reread of this magical series. It is a bedtime audiobook for me and so I am not getting through it very quickly but the narration by Stephen Fry is wonderful and I am really enjoying my bedtime Harry Potter fix!

harry potter and the chamber of secrets by j.k. rowling

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling

There’s really not much that needs to be said for this one that I haven’t already said 1000 times. Listened to the audiobook, narrated by Stephen Fry and it is just fantastic.

The Toymakers by Robert Dinsdale

This was a very, very special book. I enjoyed this so much that I struggled to put my feelings into words. I did my best though and you can see my review here.

once upon a dream by liz braswell

Once Upon a Dream by Liz Braswell

This is a retelling of Disney Sleeping Beauty and the second in a series of twisted tales. I didn’t love this one but Aurora is not a princess I have ever really liked so I didn’t expect to be wowed by it anyway.

invisible life of addie larue v.e. shwab

The Invisible Life of Addie Larue by V.E. Schwab

I feel like I have mentioned this book a lot. I really am going to read this next but because it is the Audible version that I have I just have to finish up with Thursday Murder Club before I can get started!

Two Wrongs by Rebecca Reid

I know this one was not on my January list but I was invited to take part in a very last minute Blog Tour with damppebbles and I am really excited to be involved as the book looks fantastic. Watch out for my review date on January 30th!

    1. I am finally starting Addie Larue tomorrow! It feels like I have been waiting so long and I am actually scared of being disappointed because I am going in with such high expectations!

    1. I just finished it this afternoon and it was good but I don’t think it lived up to the hype if I’m being honest. I hate to be the one with the opinion that is different to everyone else but I just didn’t love it! Starting Addie Larue tomorrow and very excited about that!

  1. You’ve got some great reads there. I read Harry Potter last year and enjoyed the series. I really want to read The Toymakers, heard so many great things about it and I’ve got Addie LaRue on my list too. Good luck with your reading this week 😊

    1. Thank you! The Toymakers is absolutely incredible and if you do pick it up at some point I hope you enjoy it. It’s really special and difficult to describe! Excited to be starting Addie Larue tomorrow!
