I decided to do a mash up of these two, because…. well…. I WANTED TOO!
WWW Wednesday is a weekly event that involves talking about three books, hosted by Taking on the World of Words past, present and future reads , if you are anything like me, you could name the three books for the present read!
ok! Let’s plough!
The three ‘W”s do not stand for the World Wide Web this time, but for ‘What’
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
Question One –
what am I not reading…is the question *giggles*
I normally have a book by my bed, A book on my Kindle and an Audiobook on the go, so these are the three I have currently, I have linked the GOODREADS page, if you are interested in knowing more about them… I know… I am so good to you guys!
Beside my bed I have DAUGHTER OF THE PIRATE KING by Tricia Levenseller, this was brought to attention by booktube, my resolve wavered and ordered it, the trouble of having amazon books on speed dial….yeah…
I am not that far in, and as a bedtime book is lighthearted and easy to read, even if i doze off, it is easy to catch up and, who does not like pirates, especially a kick ass REDHEADED PIRATE!
I am hoping to read this quickly though as have the sequel all primed and ready to go:)
On my Kindle I have an advanced copy of THE POISON BED by Elizabeth Freemantle, I just adore this author and sooooo excited to get stuck in, I am afraid the aforementioned might get bumped to my night-time reading as well for this!
The cover is amazing, I cannot wait to get my hands on the print copy when it comes out.
This is her first venture into the Jacobean world and am looking forward to reading more.
My audiobook is UNEARTHED by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner, a new YA sci-fi fantasy, the story is quite entertaining, yet the female narrator has an annoying accent /tone / drawl /croak …. someone pass her a strepsil!
I swear I will scream if she says MULLLTIE TOOL once more ….
Awesome cover, I think the publishers have cottoned on that book lovers, like myself will buy a book for a beautiful cover, because we are shallow bitches, that want pretty looking shelves….. don’t hate me, you know I am right:P
I really like that the cover conveys a lot of the book, as the main characters are in a cave ALOT, yet, i love the sci-fi neon effect on the rocks ( bottom righthand corner)
Goodness only on question two? this is going to be longer than I thought :p
Question Two –
I have just finished Labyrinth Lost (Brooklyn Brujas #1) by Zoraida Córdova a nice twist on a witch book, not the typical pointy hat ugly wart type of with but of South American vein with magic, mystery and teenage learning curves about love and family, there are others in this series, but as of yet, have no intention of reading them. It finished with a lilt towards a sequel but I think it wrapped the story up nicely for me.
I have written a review for it already, so if you want to read it, click here and it is done:)
This had been on my radar for a while and thought it was about time I got it read, now I feel achieved!
I am a mood reader and am terrible if I make a TBR list, because I know, I will have broken it, before I can say “TBR”
However, there are several that I want to pick up, mainly from my kindle, as they have sitting there waaaay to long-
I collect quite a few samples, so I want to clear my list of those and then i can decide whether I will get the whole thing –
- Carve the Mark | Veronica Roth ( was not that keen on the Divergent series, thought I would try her again)
- This Fallen Prey | Kelley Armstrong
- Gingerbread | Robert Dinsdale
- The Midnight Queen |Slyvia Hunter
- To Die For | Sandra Byrd
- Secret Keeper | Sandra Byrd
You only get the first few chapters, so should not take me long at all … famous last words (phew that took a lot of linking)
I just wanted to mention that I am really looking forward to these tow books, I am looking forwards to LOADS but have chosen to spotlight these –
Fawkes by Nadine Brandes
Thomas Fawkes is turning to stone, and the only cure to the Stone Plague is to join his father’s plot to assassinate the king of England.
Silent wars leave the most carnage. The wars that are never declared, but are carried out in dark alleys with masks and hidden knives. Wars where color power alters the natural rhythm of 17th century London. And when the king calls for peace, no one listens until he finally calls for death.
But what if death finds him first?
Keepers think the Igniters caused the plague. Igniters think the Keepers did it. But all Thomas knows is that the Stone Plague infecting his eye is spreading. And if he doesn’t do something soon, he’ll be a lifeless statue. So when his Keeper father, Guy Fawkes, invites him to join the Gunpowder Plot—claiming it will put an end to the plague—Thomas is in.
The plan: use 36 barrels of gunpowder to blow up the Igniter King.
The problem: Doing so will destroy the family of the girl Thomas loves. But backing out of the plot will send his father and the other plotters to the gallows. To save one, Thomas will lose the other.
No matter Thomas’s choice, one thing is clear: once the decision is made and the color masks have been put on, there’s no turning back.
Publish Date – Expected 10th July 2018
Sounds like fun, do you not think? WELL I DO!
Six Tudor Queens: Jane Seymour, The Haunted Queen: Six Tudor Queens 3 (Six Tudor Queens #3)
by Alison Weir
Jane Seymour: The Haunted Queen by historian Alison Weir, author of the Sunday Times bestsellers Katherine of Aragon: The True Queen and Anne Boleyn: A King’s Obsession, is the third enthralling novel in the Six Tudor Queens series. A fascinating look at Henry VIII’s third wife.
THE WOMAN HAUNTED BY THE FATE OF HER PREDECESSOR.
Eleven days after the death of Anne Boleyn, Jane is dressing for her wedding to the King.
She has witnessed at first hand how courtly play can quickly turn to danger and knows she must bear a son . . . or face ruin.
This new queen must therefore step out from the shadows cast by Katherine and Anne – in doing so, can she expose a gentler side to the brutal King?
THE THIRD OF HENRY’S QUEENS
Acclaimed, bestselling historian Alison Weir draws on new research for her captivating novel, which paints a compelling portrait of Jane and casts fresh light on both traditional and modern perceptions of her. Jane was driven by the strength of her faith and a belief that she might do some good in a wicked world.
History tells us how she died.
This spellbinding novel explores the life she lived.
The first two Katherine of Aragon and Anne Boleyn were great, I just cannot wait until I have all six on my shelves <3
I think that these covers (UK ones) are the best!
Publish date – Expected on May 17th 2018
