I have not opened a book since last week as I am on a self imposed hiatus. I was getting burnt out and reading was just making me annoyed. Instead, I am working on finishing the outline for my own book. Many readers have dreams of becoming a writer, it is time to make those dreams come true.


 

What did you recently finish reading?

Constable & Toop by Gareth P. Jones

This book was a bit of a let down. The premise was interesting…

Something mysterious and terrible is happening throughout Victorian London: Ghosts are disap­pearing. When this reaches the attention of the Ghost Bureau, the diligent but clueless Mr. Lapsewood, a paranormal paper-pusher, is sent to investigate, and what he discovers is grave. The Black Rot has arrived—a voracious spiritual infestation whereby empty haunted houses suck in unsuspecting ghosts and imprison them. Lapsewood’s investigation weaves through the plotlines of several other memorable characters—both living and dead—including an undertaker’s son who can see ghosts, a serial throat-slasher reminiscent of Jack the Ripper, an evangelical exorcist, and many more. The living and dead must work together if they hope to destroy the Black Rot—before it destroys both the ghost and human worlds. – from Goodreads

…but it ended up not following through entirely. The story jumped around between different POVS and it was hard to follow what characters you were supposed to be with. You’d get a chapter with who you thought was the main character and then not see them again for another three or four chapters. Good book, but not great. Full review coming on July 28th.


 

What do you think you’ll read next?

As I said, self imposed reading hiatus, but I have a few books to choose from when I decide to pick one up again. Could grab any of them depending on my mood at the time, although, I have to admit, A God in the Shed is pulling at me.


 

Please leave your own WWW Wednesday links in the comments, I’d love to check out your posts! Happy Wednesday and happy reading.

  1. I absolutely loved Roar! Definitely a good book, in my opinion!
    I’ll probably be reading Daughter of the Burning City after I finish ACOMAF, but I’m not sure yet, haha. Too many books on my TBR..

    Good luck and have fun writing your own book! 🙂

      1. Hope you pick it up soon and love it as much as I did, then. The Stormhunter world that Carmack created is wonderful and I honestly can’t wait for the sequel, whenever that’s going to appear.
        I’ll keep them crossed for you!
