Currently Reading: The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black. Loving this modern-day fairy tale so far!

Recently Finished: I finished Sixteen Sixty-One by Natalie Lucas which was a mixed-bag for me. I’m trying to get ahead of myself as far as reviews are concerned so non-ARC reviews such as this one are going to be a bit delayed. However, I also finally finished Mr. Miracle by Debbie Macomber which I should have reviewed ages ago (sorry), so that one will be up soon.

Up Next: So many to choose from! I can’t wait to start on all the books I got for Christmas and my birthday (which I’ll be posting about soon), and I have Red Queen from Netgalley which looks so awesome!

Leave a link to your post and I’ll come have a gander! 🙂

Happy Christmas Eve to you all!

As I’m sure is the same for most of you, reading has taken a bit of a back seat the last few days. I arrived home for Christmas and have been spending time with the family, and friends and the like. I was hoping to have finished the festive ARCS I have by now, but I’m a bit behind. Oh well.

Currently Reading:
I’ve only just started on Mr. Miracle by Debbie Macomber, but hope to finish it in the next few days. I also started reading A Christmas Visitor by Anne Perry on the train home. Liking it a lot.

Recently Finished:
I just finished Snow Angels, Secrets and Christmas Cake which was a bit slow to start with, but I liked it in the end. I’ll try to get my review up after Boxing Day. I was reading The Girl With the Glass Feet too but found it way too pretentious and slow so I didn’t bring it with me. I very much doubt I’ll pick it up again when I get back to London.

Up Next:
I honestly have no idea – it depends what I get for Christmas. I’m itching to start The Ghosts of Heaven by Marcus Sedgwick which was a present that I’ve already opened, (thanks Dora!) but I didn’t bring it with me because it’s a bit too bulky.

Currently Reading:
I’m reading Snow Angels, Secrets and Christmas Cake by Sue Watson and I also picked up The Girl With the Glass Feet by Ali Shaw which I’ve had sitting on my shelf for a couple of years. Oh boy is it pretentious. Not sure if I’ll get through it at this stage!

Recently Finished:
The last one I finished was A Christmas to Remember by Jenny Hale which I really liked. My review is here.

Up Next:
Definitely Mr. Miracle by Debbie Macomber! 🙂

10.12.2014…ALREADY! It’s only ten days until I go back oop north for Christmas with the fam!! Ahhh!

Anyway, here’s what I’ve been up to this week gone by.

Currently Reading:
I’m reading A Christmas to Remember by Jenny Hale. Liking it so far, but waiting for it to give me that warm fuzzy festive glow…who am I kidding, I’ve had that since November!

Recently Finished:
The Barefoot Queen by Ildefonso Falcones. I had mixed feelings about this historical fiction book but I’m really pleased I read it. My review went up yesterday.

I also finished The Maze Runner which was good but I kinda preferred the film. Shh. A mini review will be up at the weekend. Hopefully.

Up Next:
Obviously I’m going to continue on my festive reading rampage so I have either Mr. Miracle by Debbie Macomber, or Snow Angels, Secrets and Christmas Cake by Sue Watson which are both Netgalley reads.

Currently Reading:
I’m struggling through The Barefoot Queen, which is a really interesting read about a Cuban slave, but too bogged down in unnecessary details for my liking. And it’s soooooooooooo long, but something is making me want to finish it! I CAN DO IT!

Recently Finished:
The last one I finished was Dying For Christmas by Tammy Cohen which I really liked, and reviewed here.

Up Next:
I can’t wait to start my festive reads – I have Mr Miracle by Debbie Macomber, A Christmas to Remember by Jenny Hale and more! And, I want to read Maze Runner by the end of the year too. Ahhh.

Currently Reading:
My mum was visiting at the weekend so I didn’t get any reading done. I’m therefore still reading Dying for Christmas by Tammy Cohen but hoping to blaze through it today, I’ve enjoyed it so far!

Recently Finished:
The last one I finished was Poison by Chris Wooding. Loved it! My review will be up on Saturday.

Up Next:
The Barefoot Queen by Ildefonso Falcones, and then I’m all over some cosy Christmas reads!

Welcome to another WWW Wednesday!

I hope you are all having a good week. I’m still trying to catch up after my Horror October frenzy, but I’ll get there. Here are my answers this week:

wwwcoll

Currently Reading:
I’m reading Back to Blackbrick by Sarah Moore Fitzgerald. I’m liking it so far, it’s a little strange, much like her other book The Apple Tart of Hope which I really liked.

Recently Finished:
My last read was Wakening the Crow by Stephen Gregory which I had mixed feeling about. My review will be up tomorrow. I also finished and reviewed Killer Spiders, here.

Up Next:
So many to choose from as always. I have loads of ARCs and review request books to get through before the end of the year! Dying for Christmas by Tammy Cohen is one I’m particularly looking forward to!

I’m quite sad that this is the last WWW Wednesday of Horror October.

I hope you’ve been enjoying some creepy reads this month as much as I have!

Currently Reading:
I’m reading Wakening the Crow by Stephen Gregory, which is a gothic tale about a family who open a horror bookshop in a church after being given a box with Edgar Allan Poe’s tooth in it. So far, I’ve found this odd in the very best way, and it’s getting more and more disturbing as it goes on.

Recently Finished:
The last one I finished was Killer Spiders by Lex Sinclair. EEK. Review should be up by the end of the week.

Up Next:
The possibilities are endless. But, I’ll probably take a break from the horror reads for a while and go with Back to Blackbrick by Sarah Moore Fitzgerald.

 

What about you guys? Leave a link to your answers and I’ll come take a look!

Currently Reading:
I just started Killer Spiders by Lex Sinclair…I HATE spiders so I don’t know why I’m doing this to myself. Oh yes I do, Horror October of course! Not much to report yet other than it being very King-esque. There is a large cast of characters and it’s very descriptive. I’m yet to be hooked in though.

Recently Finished: I finished Ice Massacre by Tiana Warner which was a gruesome, action-packed Mermaid story. I really liked it. Check out my my review here.

Up Next:
I actually got through my Horror October reads quicker than I expected…I’m just a bit behind on the reviews, but watch this space. The books on the list that are left are An English Ghost Story by Kim Newman, and Wakening the Crow by Stephen Gregory, which is an ARC. They both look great!

I’ve just started Ice Massacre by Tiana Warner. Not much to report so far but I’m really intrigued by the premise.

A mermaid’s supernatural beauty serves one purpose: to lure a sailor to his death.

The Massacre is supposed to bring peace to Eriana Kwai. Every year, the island sends its warriors to battle these hostile sea demons. Every year, the warriors fail to return. Desperate for survival, the island must decide on a new strategy. Now, the fate of Eriana Kwai lies in the hands of twenty battle-trained girls and their resistance to a mermaid’s allure.

Recently Finished:
I’ve been on a bit of a Horror October roll and have finished Doll Bones by Holly Black, Printer’s Devil Court by Susan Hill and Dark Satanic Mills by Julian and Marcus Sedgwick this week. All reviews will be up soon, Doll Bones, hopefully tomorrow.

Up Next:
More Horror October madness in the shape of Killer Spiders by Lex Sinclair (shudder) or Wakening the Crow by Stephen Gregory.
