WWW Wednesdays – 7th April 2021

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Taking on a World of Words, where you just answer three questions:

The Three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?


What am I currently reading?

I am currently reading Book 2 in Lyra Wolf’s Nine World Chronicles: Chaos Rising. It is out later this week and I will be taking part in a blog tour through Storytellers on Tour on April 18th. Watch this space for my review! I am thoroughly enjoying Loki and his deliciously witty banter! I also loved the first book in the series, Truth and Other Lies and would definitely recommend it – here is my review of that one. It was 5/5 stars for me!

Chaos Rising

Let’s start Ragnarok, they said. It’ll be fun, they said.

Nothing pisses off a trickster god more than being imprisoned for five hundred years and not being able to annoy Thor. There are other reasons, secrets, and promises behind Loki’s rage, but that’s for Loki to know and the gods to find out—preferably painfully.

When the chance to start Ragnarok presents itself, Loki feels the apocalypse is as good a way as any to burn Asgard to the ground. And, it is, until the gods reveal their own teensy, tiny little surprise for Loki.

Suddenly, Loki has every reason in the worlds to stop them from ending. But this is Ragnarok, and one does not simply stop the apocalypse.

Chaos is all well and good, so long as Loki is in charge of it. Except chaos isn’t about to start taking orders from anyone, not even the god of pot-stirring himself, and it has a universe to destroy…

What did I recently finish reading?

I just finished Backstories by Simon van der Velde at the weekend. It was a very intriguing concept – a collection of short stories where the main character is kept a mystery and you try and guess who it is as the story goes on. There is a final clue at the end of each story, which usually gives it away – but there were a couple of stories which I could not guess.

30% of all profits from Backstories goes to Friends of the Earth, Stop Hate UK and The North-East Autism Society.
See www.simonvandervelde.com for further details.

Here is my full review.

Blurb:

Dreamers, singers, heroes and killers, they can dazzle with their beauty or their talent or their unmitigated evil, yet inside themselves they are as frail and desperate as the rest of us. But can you see them? Can you unravel the truth? These are people you know, but not as you know them.Peel back the mask and see.

I also read The Vegan Charade by Simon Allinson at the weekend:

Blurb:

Fast-paced satire for fans of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld.

THE CHICKPEA CHRONICLES – VOLUME 2
Now established in People Town, George is enjoying his new, civilised life. However, back in Dragonville trouble is brewing. 
A war has been declared! Sworn enemies, the Ogreton Ogres have heard that a huge, poncho-wearing dragon refuses to eat people and also, that it won’t let the other dragons eat them either. There can be only one explanation for this nature-defying dietary-finickiness: They have all gone soft! 
Tasked with averting the conflict, George is dragged back from his idyllic existence. His only hope is to convince the ogres that they’ve got it wrong; that dragons are still mental monsters who will happily gulp down anything put before them without making a huge fuss. But actual people-eating isn’t an option, because he’s a vegan, you know! 
Fortunately, People Town’s largest resident isn’t alone in his laborious, meat-free charade. The members of the Amateurish Amateur Dramatics Society / Production Company are waiting for their curtain call.
Will George’s thespian abilities be up to the challenge? Will he be able to find his motivation? Will all terrifying losses of self-control be strictly as per the script? Tickets available now!

What will I read next?

I will be reading Murder It’s All In Your Head by Cynthia Hilston next for another blog tour on April 16th. This tour is through R & R Tours.

Someone has been getting away with murder for over 100 years in the small town of Hurston, Ohio. But the wrong person has been convicted of those murders every time. In 2018, Cassie Meadows is on her way to school when a bright flash comes out of nowhere, and she wakes in millionaire Randy Davis’s body with blood on her hands…the blood of Randy’s wife, who lies in a pool of crimson in the bathtub with her throat slit. Meanwhile, an old man everyone calls Jimmy Williams raves that he’s the real Randy Davis as he lives out his days in a ward for the criminally insane. In 1914, young Helen Hawkins is unloved and repetitively abused by her father, who is also the town’s pastor. Her only escape is in her dreams, where she wakes in others’ bodies, living other lives, but when her dreams turn out to be reality, the tables are turned on her father. In a story where no one is who they seem, how can Cassie, the latest victim accused of a murder she didn’t commit, end the cycle?
