WWW Wednesday: 13th December 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?

Currently Reading

The Last RomeoI started a couple of books over the last few days as I couldn’t make my mind up what to read. I picked up The Girl Who Saved Christmas by Matt Haig first as I thought it would be nice to read a holiday themed book but I’m just not in the right mood so I also started The Last Romeo by Justin Myers. It’s very early on for both of them, I’m less than 10% in, but so far so good.

I also started a new audiobook during the week, The Monster Collection. It’s a collection of three classic gothic tales, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde (read by Richard Armitage), Frankenstein (read by Dan Stevens) and Dracula (read by Greg Wise). I’m currently around halfway through Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde and loving it.


Recently Finished

Everything Is Lies

Two books finished this week, the first of which was Everything is Lies by Helen Callaghan which I’d received from NetGalley. I really enjoyed Callaghan’s first book Dear Amy so was excited to see what she would follow it up with and it didn’t disappoint. I did think the balance of the two time periods that feature in the story was a little off but it’s a very addictive read with an engaging storyline and a few twists that took me by surprise. Definitely one for all thriller readers to keep an eye out for.

The second book finished was Still Me by Jojo Moyes, the third book in her Me Before You series. Still Me (Me Before You, #3)I’d been a little wary of more books in this series but I’m really glad we got this one. Me Before You is probably one of my all time favorites and while After You was incredibly sad I found so much I could relate to in it about the process of grieving someone you loved. It was therefore so good to see Lou finally starting to move forward with her life. The story is a little on the slow side and it’s less of an emotional rollercoaster than the previous books but I think it’s a fitting conclusion to Lou’s story.


Reading Next

I seem to be reading a lot of contemporary or thrillers at the moment so it’s probably about time for a little bit of fantasy. I have a few ARCs I was hoping to get to soon The Cruel Prince, Everless and Furyborn but I just haven’t been in a fantasy mood. Hopefully once things quieten down at work that’ll change.

The Cruel Prince (The Folk of the Air, #1)Furyborn (The Empirium Trilogy, #1)Everless

Have you read any of the books on my list this week? Any others you’d recommend? As always please feel free to leave comments and links below.

Happy Wednesday Everyone!!!

  1. I really like the sound of Everless. I had seen it around recently but hadn’t read the description until now. I’m definitely going to check it out.

    • I felt like a little too much time was spent in the past in the first half of the book and the present day was a little weak as a result. That being said I loved the parts set in the past and probably would have moaned if there had been more in the present 🙂

      Still Me was great. Like many Moyes books a little slow to get going but sneakily sucks you in.

    • Yeah you need to read After You before Still Me. Have your tissues at the ready. I think I cried the whole way through.

      I do recommend Everything is Lies. I really like Helen Callaghan.

  2. Oh, The Girl Who Saves Christmas sounds like a really cool holiday read! Too bad it didn’t capture your attention that much :/ Those audiobooks look absolutely awesome as well and I’m glad you’re enjoying them so far 🙂
    I hope you make the best out of your fantasy ARCs and they definitely seem like my type of book as well.
    Great post and have a lovely Thursday!
