WWW Wednesday | 30.11.16

Happy Wednesday, friends!

Hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words, this is one of my favourite weekly blog hops! I love being part of the a great community of readers.

All you have to do is answer three questions!

  1. What are you currently reading?
  2. What did you recently finish reading?
  3. What do you think you’ll read next?

It’s been a busy week, what with finally getting Eléonore up for pre-order and my nightly opportunities for quiet have slimmed, but I still managed to find some time to read 🙂


CURRENTLY READING

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince (Harry Potter #6) by JK Rowling

93124

Blurb

It is the middle of the summer, but there is an unseasonal mist pressing against the windowpanes. Harry Potter is waiting nervously in his bedroom at the Dursleys’ house in Privet Drive for a visit from Professor Dumbledore himself. One of the last times he saw the Headmaster was in a fierce one-to-one duel with Lord Voldemort, and Harry can’t quite believe that Professor Dumbledore will actually appear at the Dursleys’ of all places. Why is the Professor coming to visit him now? What is it that cannot wait until Harry returns to Hogwarts in a few weeks’ time? Harry’s sixth year at Hogwarts has already got off to an unusual start, as the worlds of Muggle and magic start to intertwine…

This is definitely one of my favourite books in the series and I am glad to be reading it now as I publish my own book because JK Rowling was a huge inspiration for me when I was younger. I’m hoping to be done this one tonight and then round off the series reread in December with Deathly Hallows. 🙂

RECENTLY READ

Fay Storms (The Storms Trilogy #1) by A.A. Frascati

32796029Blurb:

Thief by trade. Half-breed by blood. Fifer is part-Fay and all pluck.

When her partner goes missing and she is abducted by demanding clients, Fifer finds herself trapped in a plot she wants no part of. By fulfilling her contract with the Aestus, the brotherhood of powerful and secretive warriors, she will discover that she’s not what she thinks.

The Aestus need her—even though Arkadius, Master in training, can’t see it. In order to stop the Aestus clans from warring among themselves, Arkadius must rely on Fifer to steal a powerful magical artifact. But how can a woman save the mighty Aestus? When he discovers the answer, the fate of the Empire will rest on the edge of his sword.

A decent debut to be sure. Definitely a lot of potential for the series. There were some developments near the end that left me wanting, but for the most part, I enjoyed the story and the characters. A full review will be up soon. I’ve fallen terribly behind in those so expect a whirlwind in December 😜

READING NEXT

The Girl from the Sea by Shalini Boland

30657197Blurb:

For fans of Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train

A chilling suspense story of wounded hearts and dark secrets.

Washed up on the beach, she can’t remember who she is. She can’t even remember her name. Turns out, she has a perfect life – friends and family eager to fill in the blanks.

But why are they lying to her? What don’t they want her to remember?

When you don’t even know who you are, how do you know who to trust?

One of my NetGalley reads. I’ve had it on my shelf for a while but I’ve fallen behind. Time for catching up!

Infernal Alliance (Infernal Hunt #4) by Holly Evans

32868656Blurb: (heavily edited to avoid spoilers)

A rebellion is brewing, threatening to tear down all that the hunters have worked for.

I fell in love with this series by Holly. She’s an amazing writer and a huge inspiration behind my debut novella. I’m excited to read it, but also nervous. I don’t want this series to end.

But she has a new series in the work, so there’s that to look forward to 🙂

Also, isn’t this cover gorgeous 😍

May inspiration flow like ink upon your quill,

  1. Rereading HP is always so much fun! I love the sixth book as well. And The Girl From The Sea is such a good read; Shalini Boland is without doubt one of my favorite new authors this year. I hope you will enjoy your books this week!

  2. Congratulations on publishing! What a great accomplishment. Enjoy Potter. HBP was my favorite movie, but GoT was my favorite book. Happy reading and thanks for participating in WWW Wednesday!

  3. I’ve been thinking for a while I ought to do a Harry Potter re-read. I actually much preferred the earlier books to the later ones, which is actually what has been putting me off, since they are the bigger ones and I’d have to push through them. Still, I think it would be good to revisit that world.

  4. Harryyyyy!! I’m not much of a series re-reader, but I was on a HP movie binge recently because one of my cable channels was doing a series marathon the weekend before Thanksgiving. And then of course I watched a couple of the movies on DVD, too. 🙂

    Right now I’m reading Tolkien’s Unfinished Tales, which has been really interesting so far (in a good way, too). The Dispossessed by Ursula K. Le Guin will probably come after that.

  5. I’ve fallen behind on my reviews, too. That’s what happens when you only post one a week and read a bunch of short books in short succession!
    I need to catch up with Holly’s series, too. Infernal Alliance is going to be a January read, I think ^-^
