WWW Wednesday - On Thursday (8)


~ I am about 100 page into The Comet Seekers by Helen Sedgwick. This was a book I heard about back when everyone was sharing their BEA loot, but then never actually heard that much about after the fact. It sounded like something that I would like, though, so I pre-ordered it. I am very happy with this decision so far! I have some other essay collections and short story collections started, but I don't download them to my device and no internet for three days put me behind in electronic things.


~ I grabbed a copy of The Book of the Unnamed Midwife off of Audible because an editor on there mentioned it and I was indecisive on what to listen to next. I honestly have not heard of it before, but it is a different take on very common themes in books at the moment and I am liking it so far. My reading is usually so planned out nowadays, so it was nice to just listen to something that was not planned at all. I am also in the midst of Everything, Everything, but that is another electronic thing that I am behind in at the moment.


~ I actually have been doing really well on the reading since my last post. I settled in and finished The Girl from Everywhere. It took me a bit of time to get into it, but I think that was just my mood. In the end I really enjoyed it and can't wait for the sequel. Then, I spent an evening finally finishing Feedback by Mira Grant. It was not as good as the previous books I listened to, but still enjoyable. I really just blame a cold for why I was so slow with it. I then finished Behind the Throne by K.B. Wagers and really enjoyed it! It only came out in August and the sequel will be here in December. I am excited! Last weekend, I settled in with The Marvels because I bought it at the end of last year and it was still sitting here unread. I have loved Brian Selznick for years and this was no different. I followed my audio listening up with The Magician's Elephant, which was an Audible deal last week. I didn't love it, but still a good author. And then, lastly, I finished The Evil Wizard Smallbone this morning. I really enjoy Delia Sherman, and this was no exception.


~ The question I always have the hardest time with. It is also Thanksgiving Weekend, which in Canada just means sales. I all ready did my annual audio shopping this morning. I am hoping for some good e-book sales over the weekend as well. So, we will see where reading takes me as we finish out 2016!
