WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme formerly hosted by MizB at Daily Rhythm and now hosted on Taking on a World of Words.
The three Ws are:
This week has been quite similar to the previous one, but I have managed to make some progress in my reading.
I have only a few pages left to complete, and I am hoping to finish it tonight!
The London Séance Society by Sarah Penner
Murder Mystery, Fantasy
Two women investigate a murder mystery through communicating with the deceased via a séance led by renowned spiritualist Vaudeline D’Allaire. Lenna Wickes overcomes her skepticism to join Vaudeline as an apprentice, but they begin to suspect they are caught up in a web of deceit.
I’m really looking forward to getting back into this after finishing The London Séance Society. I am excited to go back to the sea!
The Isles of the Gods by Amie Kaufman
A girl named Selly is left behind by her father in Kirkpool. A magician boards her ship and assigns them a risky mission to navigate the Crescent Sea undetected. The mission involves rebellion, fear, and dangerous gods. This captivating fantasy series is full of magic, romance, and adventure, written by the bestselling author of the Aurora Cycle.
I am thinking about reading “Ithaca,” the first book in the series, before continuing with this one. However, I haven’t made a final decision yet. We’ll see!
House of Odysseus by Claire North (The Songs of Penelope #2)
House of Odysseus is a YA retelling of ancient Greek myth, giving voice to the women who stand strong in a world ruled by ruthless men. The story takes place in the palace of Odysseus, where Queen Penelope tries to prevent her home from being crushed by two mad kings, Orestes and Menelaus, with the help of Elektra and Helen of Troy. The goddess Aphrodite watches over them all, with her own plans in mind.
Recently Finished Reading
Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to finish any books this week. However, I am almost done with “TLSS”. So progress has been made!
Have you read this book yet? I am eager to dive back into it and determine if it would make a good recommendation for Autumn.
Weyward by Emilia Hart
Historical fiction, Fantasy.
“Weyward” by Emilia Hart is a novel that intertwines the stories of three women from different centuries who display remarkable resilience and a deep connection to nature. Kate flees to her great aunt’s ramshackle cottage to escape her abusive partner, only to discover a hidden secret from the witch hunts of the 17th century. Altha is accused of witchcraft and must use her unique magical abilities to maintain her freedom.
