WWW Wednesdays - 29 Jan
WWW Wednesdays is hosted by Miz B over at ShouldBeReading.  If you'd like to join in here is what you need to do - answer these three questions:
* What are you currently reading?
* What did you just finish reading?
* What are you going to read next?
What are you currently reading?
I'm still working my way through both The Children's Book by A.S. Byatt and Accidents & Incidents by Riley Graham.  Hopefully I'll have finished A&I by the weekend.  I'm also listening to Cocaine Blues by Kerry Greenwood, which I'm quite enjoying, I've seen a couple episodes of the tv series which I've also enjoyed.  I'm also reading a few books on project management, which is for uni - and I need to get my butt into gear as I've got another assignment due and I need to finish it!!
What did you just finish reading?
I just finished the graphic novel versions of Alpha & Omega: Cry Wolf by Patricia Briggs*.  While I enjoyed the story, and I'd like to read the book as well, I didn't really love the illustrations.  The covers were beautiful, but a different artist completed the story artwork.  It didn't gel with what I had in my mind - and I know they can't get it perfect, it's my interpretation after all, but these were completely different.  I also listened to Just Annoying by Andy Griffiths and Two Weeks with the Queen by Morris Gleitzman - both of which are on my 1001 children's list so booyah!!    
* I'm going to do a full review of Alpha & Omega, hopefully that'll be up on the blog by the end of the week.
 What are you going to read next?
Okay, so I'm still about to start the first Percy Jackson, but I'd also like to get a few off my currently reading list on goodreads, there are a few which have been hanging around for a bit now and it's getting ridiculous!  I also have a few challenge and group reads to begin in February. The Invention of Hugo Cabret and Flotsam are both from the 1001 children's list, I haven't picked my book from the 1001 adult's list yet.  But I do think it's safe to say I've missed the boat on White Teeth by Zadie Smith, which was January's read.

So that's my WWW Wednesday for this week, feel free leave yours in the comments below or if you have a blog, leave me a link so I can check it out!  Happy reading :)



  1. This is a pretty interesting list. Are you planning on watching the Lightning Thief movie after you've finished the book (if you haven't already)

    1. I've watched both already and really enjoyed them, which just cemented that I need to read the series!

    1. Two Weeks with the Queen was certainly a pleasant surprise. I try to read a bit of everything - I work in a library, so it helps to read it all - or at least as much of it as I can! I'm going to start PJ tomorrow - very excited.
