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?
Another week and another new book started on a Monday 🙂 This week I’m reading The Lost Man by Jane Harper, a copy of which I received from the publisher via NetGalley. I’m getting the bathroom in my house replaced this week so I haven’t had a huge amount of reading time but so far so good. I’m a big fan of Jane Harper, I loved The Dry and Force of Nature, so I’m really looking forward to seeing what she does with a different cast of characters.
Despite the fact that I really should be unpacking some more boxes and wotnot I have to confess I went on a bit of a reading binge over the weekend and consequently finished three books. The first of these was The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo and seriously, this book blew me away. I did find it a little bit slow in the beginning but by the end I was a big blubbering wreck. I suspect a lot of people probably won’t like Evelyn as a character much, she’s pretty selfish, ruthless and willing to do whatever, but I liked her a lot. Yes she does some not very nice things but she stands by her actions and refuses to regret them.
After such an emotional rollercoaster I needed something much lighter and funnier so switched back to the the Charley Davidson series and the fourth book Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet which I’d grabbed from the library. I am absolutely loving this series about a private investigator/police consultant/grim reaper. It’s a little bit silly but it’s fun and I love how the characters do develop over the course of it. I loved it so much that I also ended up reading book five, Fifth Grave Past the Light on Sunday. Thankfully I haven’t as yet managed to get my hands on books six and seven or I wouldn’t have been able to stop. It’s possible I may have an addiction.
Next up I think I’m going to finally pick up The Christmas Sisters by Sarah Morgan. Other than singing along with some of the songs on the radio I have been really struggling to get into the festive spirit so hopefully this will give me the kick I need. I’d also really like to pick up either The Beauty of the Wolf (a Beauty and the Beast retelling) or The Enchanted Sonata (a Nutcracker retelling). Both seem like they’d be perfect for the season – and they’re sitting on my NetGalley shelf.
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 Reading ❤
