WWW Wednesday July 27

Welcome to Wednesday which means that it’s time for WWW Wednesday. This is one of my favourite memes and I love taking part in it and reading everybody else’s posts. It’s currently hosted by Sam and it can be found on her blog Taking on a world of words which can be found here.

The idea of WWW Wednesday is just to answer three simple questions about what you are reading, have just finished and are about to read so here goes for this week.

What I’m currently reading

Daughter of the Moon Goddess by Sue Lynn Tan
A gorgeous retelling of Chinese legends. I remember using the legend of the 10 suns in an assembly with my pupils many years ago. I’m loving this book so far.

Spring Cannot be Cancelled by David Hockney and Martin Gayford
I love David Hockney’s art and have been to several exhibitions. I was bought this for my birthday a couple of weeks ago. It’s basically a long conversation by email between David and Martin and covers so many things about his art work, other artists, nature and life itself. It’s so interesting to get such an insight into an artist’s mind.

What I have recently finished reading

I really enjoyed all of these although I can’t remember the last time that I went a whole week without reading a crime novel!!!!!

I loved being able to read the complete duology by Elizabeth Lim. I didn’t think that The Dragon’s Promise was quite as good as Six Crimson Cranes but it was still a good read.

What I am intending to read next

Madonna of Bolton by Matt Cain
This cover caught my eye at the library last week and then I realised that it’s by the author of The Secret Life of Albert Entwhistle which I loved. A nine year old boy is given one of Madonna’s singles and promptly Mfalls in love with her. She then becomes a sort of spirit guide for him as he deals with life’s problems. I’m expecting a sort of feel good coming of age story but I could be totally wrong!!

That’s the current state of my reading this week. What does your WWW Wednesday look like?

  1. Daughter of the Moon Goddess is one that I am so excited about!! It’s been sitting on my cart for months. lol I’m reading Dragon’s Promise next!

    1. Hope you enjoy Dragon’s Promise. I’m loving Daughter of the Moon Goddess and I’ve just discovered there’s a sequel due out later this year

      1. Thank you! I know, I saw the sequel and I requested the ARC. I was declined for Daughter of the Moon Goddess so expecting the same. Although, if I put off DofMG then I might get the second book approved. haha

      2. There doesn’t seem to be any pattern in which requests I get declined for. I guess it probably depends on how many requests they get😳

  2. I’m glad you did enjoy Dragon’s Promise. I’m still slowly plugging away at it one chapter per day. Your current read is very intriguing. Happy reading!
