|| WWW Wednesday || 8th September 2021 || What are you reading this week? ||
Hi there bookworms and welcome to another WWW Wednesday post!
WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words.
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?
The Wolf Den by Elodie Harper; I started this Monday night and have found myself racing through the pages. A historical/Greek mythology about a woman sold into slavery and forced to work in a Pompeii brothel.
She Who Became the Sun by Shelley Parker-Chan; I have had this e-ARC for a long time and just haven’t been able to make the time to read it so far. I decided to spend this months Audible credit on it and so far so good. The narration is great, it reminds me a lot of The Poppy War audiobooks… maybe it’s even the same narrator, I’ll have to check!
The Witch’s Heart by Genevieve Gornichec; I’ve not written a full review out yet (I am actually behind on all my reviews again somehow) but this was a really enjoyable audiobook about Norse gods, a forgotten witch who falls in love with the trickster Loki and their monster children. (3.5 stars)
The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller; Absolutely beautiful, achingly sad and gorgeously written. (5 stars)
Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard; I had so much fun with this book and read it in one day. I am really looking forward to continuing the series. (4 stars)
The Doll Factory by Elizabeth McNeal; Deliciously dark gothic historical fiction set in Victorian times (my favourite). It was sinister and I could not put it down! (5 stars)
The Shanghai Wife by Emma Harcourt; Okay, so this wasn’t on this months TBR pile but when the invite for this book tour dropped in my inbox I couldn’t resist it. My date is the 16th so I’ll be reading this as soon as I’ve finished The Wolf Den!
