What are you reading Wednesday?

I can't believe this is my first WAYRW for 2013. This is my favourite kind of post to make, I love hearing what everyone else is reading!

I pre-ordered a bunch of books that were released yesterday on January 29th. I bought three, 'Til The World Ends, The Archived, and the newest Flavia de Luce mystery, Speaking From Among The Bones. I think this is some kind of record. I might break it on August 15th though, when two Isabelle Arsenault books will be released, as well as a Stan Rogers picture book (he was a famous Canadian folk singer for those of you non-Canucks) and a new Stella story.

Have you ever pre-ordered multiple books on the same day? What's your record?

I decided to go with the Flavia de Luce book today! I recently read through the first four books and there is so much to savour in each one.  This one is off to an excellent start, much like Flavia's precocious self.

The cover worries me as it looks like one of my favourite supporting characters, Gladys the bicycle, may be injured.

I bought Silverlicious so long ago but we just read it tonight. I loved how they went through so many holidays- and the notes Pinkalicious wrote were pretty cute.

What are you reading this cold Wednesday?


  1. I just finished Scarpetta, which I read throughout my holiday. Today, I read about 4 pages of Knit Two, A Friday Night Knitting Club, so I'm not sure how it's going to stack up. I read the first one a few years ago and liked it for the craft angle!

    Missed your WAYRW's!

  2. I am reading the Lonely Planet's guide to the Canaries, does that count?

  3. I am so excited to read the Bradley book, and will be interested to know what you think about it. I just finished Rachel Joyce's The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Joyce and thought it was fabulous. My daughter is reading three Froggy books simultaneously and my son is starting the Spiderwick Chronicles.

  4. I've just started "the Farseekers" the second book of Isobelle Carmody's The Obernewtyn Chronicles. I love the series, I first read them as a teen but because there was a MASSIVE gap between some of the releases I haven't actually read the last few, so I'm going over them all. The series is going to be my February read for my Australian speculative fiction authors challenge.

    I'm also reading the fourth edition of "The Elements of Style" (Shrunk and White) to hone my writing skills.

    Xander is in love with picking up any book he can and pretending he's reading all by himself. It's so cute. There's no particular favourite right now though.
