Hello Hello! How are you all?

Monday was a typical Monday and I ended up giving up early and going to write more of my novel for NaNoWriMo and managed to jump over the 30k line, whoop whoop! I’m writing this Tuesday morning, so I could have made more progress by the time this post goes up tomorrow morning!

I’m struggling with my health a little bit at the moment, I have so many things to do for university and I just want to lay in my reading nook with a big fluffy blanket and books, but hopefully, the Christmas holidays are not far away!

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam over at Taking On A World of Words.

WWW Wednesday is based on 3 questions:

What are you currently reading?

What did you recently finish reading?

What do you think you’ll read next?



The Dire King (#4 Jackaby) by William Ritter

The Dire King (Jackaby, #4)

Candyce and I have been reading this series for the past few months and I’ve fallen in love with it, it’s such a great series! We are going to be finishing the last chapters in this book today (Tuesday) and I really don’t want it to end, I want to have another 100 adventures with Abigail and Jackaby, I don’t know how this is going to wrap up in 4 chapters, ARGH!


Shadows of Winterspell by Amy Wilson

Shadows of Winterspell

I’ve been reading this book for the Middle Grade Marvels book club and we are all really enjoying it. It’s very whimsical and magical, it has a lot going for it. I like that we know things almost straight away and don’t have to be guessing all the time because it’s a short book and I’m already over halfway through, hoping to read the 3rd section in the next few days!


To Sleep in a Sea of Stars by Christopher Paolini

To Sleep in a Sea of Stars

I managed to get in a big chunk of this book this weekend and although I’m not fully loving it, I have to say it’s so interesting and when I am reading it, I can’t seem to put it down. It’s very different from anything I’ve previously read, it’s a proper space and aliens kind of science fiction and it’s fun, I feel like it’s getting really interesting as more things are happening.


Five Feet Apart by Rachael Lippincott, Mikki Daughtry and Tobias Iaconis

Five Feet Apart

I started this on Monday and I’ve already nearly finished it, I’ve only got about 70 pages to go and I’m pretty sure it’ll be done tonight. This isn’t the best-written book that I’ve read and it’s not really giving me feels (I think The Fault in Our Stars ripped my heart out and I still haven’t gotten it back), but I know the ending is going to be hard. I’ve been reading this for my thesis and it currently has more stick notes than the stick notes pack aha!



I’ve not actually finished any books since last week, but as I’m writing this, I’m sure I’m going to be finishing The Dire King by William Ritter for the buddy read I’m doing with Candyce, we’ve been loving it and don’t want it to end. And I’m pretty sure I’ll also finish Five Feet Apart by Rachael Lippincott too. I’ve just flown through this one.



The Girl in Red by Christina Henry

The Girl in Red

This is another book I’ve got on my list for my thesis, I’ve wanted to read it since the start of the year and I’m really hoping that I can get to it as soon as I finish another book. I know this one is horror so I’m a bit scared, but maybe if I stick to reading it in the day I’ll be okay? In any case, I’m really looking forward to finally jumping in.


The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton

The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle

Candyce and I have decided that we are going to start this book once we finish The Dire King. I actually purchased it right when it came out and even started it quite a while ago, but I wasn’t in the mood to read a mystery so ended up putting it down. I know that it’s going to be easier to get into it if I’m buddy reading it, and I’ve heard so much about it, so I can’t wait to give this one another shot.


That’s all for now, I hope you enjoyed this post, see you soon, stay safe,

    1. Thank you Jules! It is quite slow, I’m about 230 pages in and it’s only now actually getting going but a lot of things happen before so it’s still enjoyable and it doesn’t really drag in my opinion!

  1. Ooo, I’m interested to see how you feel about the Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle. I’ve been so intrigued by the synopsis but still haven’t picked it up 👀 Great post, Ellie!
