WWW Wednesday: 14th November 2018

Welcome my WWW Wednesday for November, it’s a weekly thing, but I’m doing it monthly, as that works better for me at the moment! Hosted by Sam over at Taking on a World of Words, if you’d like to join in, just answer the three questions below and pop your blog link on Sam’s weekly post in the comments.

So, this week…

What are you currently reading?

I was very excited when I got an email saying that The Doll Factory by Elizabeth Macneal was now waiting for me on my NetGalley shelf! I’d heard a lot of buzz about this book, plus I just love the cover (I know, I know, you shouldn’t judge etc BUT this cover did make me want to read the book, what can I say?) and so far it’s got me very intrigued. I’m not very far into it yet, so the (19th century) scene is still being set, but so far we’ve met a taxidermist and twins that work in a doll making shop. How their lives link are yet to be seen, but it’s definitely a story I want to immerse myself in.

What did you recently finish reading?

In my last WWW Wednesday post I raved about the book I was then reading, The Hunting Party and I’m here to tell you that it lived up to ALL my expectations and was such a fantastic read! It’s out in January, you MUST get yourself a copy! You can see in greater detail why I loved it so much here.

What do you think you’ll read next?

Hhhmmm, my TBR stack is quite tall at the moment, so this is a tricky decision! But I think it’s a toss up between Last Ones Left Alive by Sarah Davis-Goff or Cuckoo by Sophie Draper. Last Ones Left Alive is a dystopian novel set in Ireland with some Walking Dead vibes and Cuckoo is a psychological thriller about a girl uncovering secrets about her stepmother once she has died. I do like a psychological thriller, so hoping this is a good one! As you can see, they’re quite different, so if anyone’s read either of them, let me know which one I should read first!

    1. Thank you! I saw on Twitter that The Doll Factory cover is actually a photograph of a real bell jar that they filled with illustrations – how amazing!
