What I’m Reading Wednesday

14/11/2018

Hey!

2018 has been a very very slow and slumpy reading year for me so far and I’ve only read one five star read so far, which isn’t great considering it’s November. However, I think I’m reading two possible five star reads right now.

Miss Peregrine

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children – Ransom Riggs

Goodreads

Page: 270 of 352

Thoughts so far: I am absolutely flying through this book! I love every single one of the characters, I love the world and I love the way in which the photographs have been incorporated into the story. I especially love the beautiful imagery Ransom Riggs uses throughout the novel. This is looking to be a five out of five star read.

A Discovery of Witches

A Discovery of Witches – Deborah Harkness

Goodreads

Page: 120 of 688

Thoughts so far: I think this is going to be my second five out of five star read of the month!  Although I’m not far through this loooong book, I have watched the first season of the TV show and I absolutely loved it. I loved the romance and I hope it is as good in the book. I really enjoy the different creatures and their stereotypes and the way they have specific talents depending on the type of creature. I adore the setting of Oxford.

silent companions

The Silent Companions – Laura Purcell

Page: 39 of 364

Thoughts so far: I’m finding this book quite slow at the moment and I feel like I’m taking SO long to read it. It’s also not as creepy as I expected it to be. However, I have faith that this book will pick up as I read further into the story as I have a feeling the slow pace may be to build up tension.

 

Let me know if you’ve read any of the above books and what you thought of them. Thanks for reading!
