Happy Wednesday Folks!
I hope you’re getting back into your work groove, or at least biding the time.
I can’t really complain this week since things seem light, so let’s get right into the post!
Every Wednesday I participate in a meme called WWW Wednesday.
This meme is a challenge where you simply share what you’re reading, what you’ve recently finished, and what you hope to read in the near future.
The meme is currently handled by Taking On A World of Words, and anybody can participate.
Simply read the 3 W questions below and answer them should you want to:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
We Need Diverse Books founder Ellen Oh returns with Spirit Hunters, a high-stakes middle grade mystery series about Harper Raine, the new seventh grader in town who must face down the dangerous ghosts haunting her younger brother. A riveting ghost story and captivating adventure, this tale will have you guessing at every turn!
Harper doesn’t trust her new home from the moment she steps inside, and the rumors are that the Raine family’s new house is haunted. Harper isn’t sure she believes those rumors, until her younger brother, Michael, starts acting strangely. The whole atmosphere gives Harper a sense of déjà vu, but she can’t remember why. She knows that the memories she’s blocking will help make sense of her brother’s behavior and the strange and threatening sensations she feels in this house, but will she be able to put the pieces together in time?
Opinion so far:
I just started this mid-yesterday and am a third through already. This book is a lot of middle grade fun, and I can’t wait to delve deeper into the mystery! This has a creepy vibe that I’m just eating up right now.
Jonathan befriends the new boy in class, but Jonathan has something sinister in mind.
A young boy tests his skills to continue his father’s legacy; a young woman goes to great lengths after a betrayal; a woman confronts her stalker. These stories, along with those of obsession, revenge, and teenage tragedy, explore the dark side of human nature.
This is my first read of Debbie Johansson, and I had fun! These short darker stories were just what I needed to get out of my temporary reading slump (more on that in a later post), and I’m looking forward to reading more from her.
Legacy and Other Short Stories Review
Next on my TBR:
Opinion so far:
Up next I’m looking forward to reading more Animorphs. I mean, who doesn’t like Jake? Such a great leader.
After that, I’m thinking a Stephen King book might do me good. This one’s been on my shelf for probably half a year. It’s been long enough since my last read of his that I can justify reading another. I try not to read too many of his too frequently since most of his have been reviewed to death and indie authors need a lot more love.
Last but not least is my Small Spaces buddy read with Iseult Murphy. I accidentally opened this the other day instead of Spirit Hunters, then freaked when I realized it. However, my first impression was a good one.
Wish me luck!
That’s a Wrap!

Ahhhh! So glad you realized your mistake with Small Spaces! I’m really looking forward to reading it.
You had a great week. I’m in a bit of a reading slump at the moment. Hope I get back into my stride soon.
Haha yeah I nearly threw the book when I realized. Very knee jerk reaction like AH!
thanks friend, i just recovered from a slump too so you’ll get there believe me. Maybe try something new!
I’m rooting for you!
That’s funny about accidentally starting Small Spaces.:-) I am reading The Resurrectionists by Michael Patrick Hicks. When I was reading this morning, the plot took a HUGE, cosmic turn. Really fun.
Haha yeah, the two books have similar vibes so it’s understandable haha.
Oh that sounds creepy. Do you love it so far?
I finished The Resurrectionists today. Yep, it was great! My only beef is it ended with a big set up for the next book. I would have liked a better wrap up.
Ah, I agree with you. A concluding of things and leaving it there for a moment is better in my eyes also. Glad you enjoyed it!
