The WWW Wednesday meme is currently hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words and is a great way to do a weekly update on what you’ve been reading and what you have planned.
To take part all you have to do is answer the following three questions:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
Here’s this weeks WWW.
I started reading Traitor to the Throne by Alwyn Hamilton at the weekend. It’s the sequel to Rebel of the Sands which I read and really enjoyed last year. I was very lucky to have my wish for it granted on NetGalley (I’ve never had a wish granted before) so I couldn’t resist starting immediately. I currently around halfway through and I think it may actually be better than the first book. Loving it.
I’ve also started listening to the audiobook of Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins. I had forgotten just how much I loved the original books so I’m enjoying working my way through them again. I have to admit however there are times when I want to speed it along a bit to get to the good bits 🙂
The first book finished this week was Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough. This was a thriller I received from NetGalley about the relationship between seemingly perfect couple, David and Adele, and single mum Louise who gets caught in the middle of it.
It’s a twisty tale that keeps you guessing more or less to the very end and, while I wasn’t sure about a certain plot element that I can’t go into (spoilers), once I got into it I found it very addictive reading. I also liked some of the characters, something which is rare for me in a thriller.
The second book finished this week was New York, Actually by Sarah Morgan (it seems like there are Sarah’s everywhere at the moment) which I also received from NetGalley. I love Sarah Morgan books, they’re just so funny, romantic and kind of hot and it was just the type of read I was in need of.
This is the fourth book in her From Manhattan with Love series but it can be easily read as a standalone. The story follows Molly, a blogger and writer who gives relationship advice despite her most meaningful relationship being with her dog Valentine, and Daniel, a divorce lawyer who isn’t looking for a serious relationship. They meet when he borrows a dog to try and catch her attention in the park and sparks fly.
It’s a common storyline but Sarah Morgan does it so well and there are a few surprises and laughs in there. I read the whole thing from cover to cover on Saturday. It’s like settling down to watch your favorite rom-com.
Sooo, I may have gone a little bit nuts on NetGalley recently (when I’m stressed I request) but there are just so many good books coming out soon. I still don’t think I’m going to have a lot of reading time over the next week but I do want to try and make a dent in my shelf. After my current read I think I’m therefore going to pick up The Breakdown by B.A. Paris (I like to switch between genres so it’s time for another thriller).
Have you read any of the books above or have any other book you’d recommend? Leave comments and links below and I’ll respond when I can.
Happy Wednesday everyone.
