MizB hosts WWW Wednesday on her blog 'Should Be Reading'.
The rules are simple:
To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…
(1) What are you currently reading?
I'm currently about 6 chapters into an advance reading copy of Bitter Greens by Australian author Kate Forsyth.
Juliet Marillier, author of Daughter of the Forest and Heart’s Blood declares "History and fairytale are richly entwined in this spellbinding fairytale. Unputdownable!"
I'm loving it so far and would certainly recommend it to lovers of French historical fiction, although it's too early yet to give you many details about it.
(2) What did you recently finish reading?
I've just finished reading the biography on Australian rock band Powderfinger. It has been a huge disappointment.
I've loved Powderfinger for nearly 2 decades so I knew their bio would not have any major scandals to reveal. They're just 5 nice guys doing something they love.
But the writing is appalling - it has been a chore to get through it.
The best bit was the photographs and memorabilia...and of course the CD that came with it.
(3) What do you think you’ll read next?
Next on my list is a teen book.
"Three of them will go on the trip of a lifetime. Only one will come back."
172 Hours on the Moon has won the prestigious Brage prize for children's literature in Norway.
A huge global marketing campaign will coincide with the April release date. Judging by the number of blogs who have this title on their Waiting for Wednesday/In My Mailbox list suggests that they're doing a good job of getting the message out there so far...I just hope it lives up to the hype!
