WWW Wednesday: 25th January 2017

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.

WWW Wednesday

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.

Currently ReadingTraitor to the Throne (Rebel of the Sands #2)

I started reading Traitor to the Throne by Alwyn Hamilton at the weekend. It’s the sequel to Rebel of the Sandsย 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Recently FinishedBehind Her Eyes

The first book finished this week wasย Behind Her Eyesย 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.

New York, Actually (From Manhattan with Love, #4)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 Loveย 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.

Reading Next

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 upย The Breakdown by B.A. Paris (I like to switch between genres so it’s time for another thriller).

ย In the unlikely event I get that finished I’m going to try and make a start on either Sweetpea by C.J. Skuse, The Best of Adam Sharp by Graeme Simsion or The Ninth Rain by Jen Williams.

Happy Wednesday everyone.

  1. It seems like you had a good reading week. The two books that you read both sound great and I am glad to hear that you enjoyed them. Looking forward to hear about The Break Down. Happy reading!

    • Really. It’s usually the other way round and you can’t get anything in the UK. You’ll get it eventually. At the moment I’ve been very jealous that Strange the Dreamer seems to be available for request in Australia.

      • It works that way in pretty much every genre, except for thrillers! I was going through the genre on Netgalley and every single time a book interested me, it was only available in the U.K. You guys get all the cool thrillers. And yes, I want Strange the Dreamer so bad; lucky Australians. ๐Ÿ˜

  2. I am so eagerly anticipating Behind Her Eyes and The Breakdown…and I may have to grab one of those Sarah Morgan books. They look like fun. I’m curious about Graeme Simsion’s newest…I read The Rosie Project and The Rosie Effect.

    Enjoy! Thanks for sharing, and here’s MY WWW POST

  3. I keep reminding myself to read Miracle on 5th Avenue by Sarah Morgan!! And Behind Her Eyes surely sounds interesting so I’ll check that one out.
    I’m currently reading Behind Closed Doors by B.A. Paris and while there’s something about it that keeps me reading, I’m a bit frustrated by how slow things are going. So I’m still not sure if I’m going to pick up Paris’s next book.
    Happy reading! ๐Ÿ˜€

  4. I do the same thing when I’m stressed: buy books or request NetGalley ๐Ÿ˜›
    I haven’t read Rebel of the Sands yet, but I hear good things so I hope you enjoy the sequel.
    And I’ll have to keep an eye on Behind Her Eyes too.
    Happy Reading ๐Ÿ™‚
