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?
I started reading I Know Who You Are by Alice Feeney on Monday and seem to be making pretty good progress with it. I was a big fan of the author’s previous novel, Sometimes I Lie, so I had high expectations for this one. I did initially find it a little hard to focus on but I think that’s more down to real life stuff (work, house, animals, lack of sleep etc) than the book but once I got used to the writing I was hooked. As I write this I’m around the 80% mark so I will no doubt be finished it all too soon.
On audio I’m back on The Diviners by Libba Bray as my library hold finally came in. I’m pretty sure I first started listening to this way back in November, and I’m still only around halfway through. Here’s hoping I manage to finish it this time before I lose my hold again (apparently there are 5 people waiting – so if I don’t it’ll be a while before I get it again).
Yet again I seem to be feeling a little bit slumpy so only one book finished this week, Blood Heir by Amelie Wen Zhao. As the author has decided not to publish due to issues raised over some of the themes I’m not going to review (and I’m definitely not commenting on the controversy) but I will say that I hope she does manage to get her writing out there. Blood Heir is not perfect but I thought the world building and descriptions were wonderful and I really liked the character development. Hopefully there will be some re writes and this will be published (or if not this something else).
It’s my birthday this coming weekend so as I’ve mostly requested vouchers (no one’s brave enough to buy me actual books) I’m hoping I can go on a spree (as obviously I have nothing to read). I’ve already pre ordered Holy Sister by Mark Lawrence and I’m kind of tempted to grab a copy of Other Words for Smoke by Sarah Maria Griffin. ARC wise I’m thinking my next reads will likely be Wolfunter River by Rachel Caine or Close to the Edge by Toby Faber
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 ❤
