WWW Wednesday: 3rd July 2019

The WWW Wednesday meme is 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 ReadingAnd Then She Vanishes

Wow, I can’t believe we’re into July already. This has been such a quick year. Anyway, I started reading Then She Vanishes by Claire Douglas at the weekend and made some really good progress with it. Unfortunately this progress came to a bit of a halt on Monday when I discovered my commute to work would be by replacement bus service rather than train. I get travel sick if I try to read on a bus (or car, or plane) and my commute is now three times as long so it’s proving difficult to get much reading done. It has been a great read so far so fingers crossed I can find some time to devote to it.

Recently Finished

Two books finished again this week, both very different reads but both enjoyable.

The Binding99% Mine

  • The Binding by Bridget Collins – Have to confess I picked this up largely because of the cover, I’m not sure I even read the blurb, but thankfully this turned out to be good decision as I loved it. It wasn’t exactly what I thought it would be, it’s more of a love story than a fantasy, but the writing and descriptions are wonderful and the central concept of being able to remove memories and bind them into books is brilliant.
  • 99% Mine by Sally Thorne – As someone who absolutely loved The Hating Game this was one of my most anticipated reads of this year but after seeing a few not so great reviews I’d been putting it off. I couldn’t however resist when it popped up on NetGalley and read the whole thing in pretty much a day. It’s a very different book, with very different characters from The Hating Game but it had to be and I loved it. I think I just really liked main character Darcy and found her very relateable. The romance could have had a bit more heat but the whole thing just made me so emotional I couldn’t not adore it.

Reading NextThe Lady's Guide to Petticoats and Piracy (Montague Siblings, #2)

I finally got around to posting my Summer TBR at the weekend so I feel like I should maybe try to stick to it for at least the next week or so 🙂 Despite this however it is looking likely that my next read will be The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy (which is not on my TBR) as I got it on Libby and it’s due back in a few days.

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 ❤

    • I think waiting to read it worked in my favour. I’d seen a lot of not so great reviews by then and my expectations were lower. It’s probably not one I’ll reread multiple times (like I have with The Hating Game) but I enjoyed it. Weirdly I cried a lot while reading it.

    • Have to admit it’s not wowing me. It’s not bad, but I’m struggling to connect to any of the characters or the story. I do seem to be in the minority based on other reviews though.

  1. I can’t believe I still have to read Gentleman’s Guide! Hopefully I can remedy that later this month if I have time. I hope your commute will return back to normal soon! Replacement bus services are the worst. Happy reading! xx

  2. Oh man, that sucks about the commute! I inexplicably get sick trying to read on my way home from work but not on my morning journey.

    I really need to get onto reading Mackenzi Lee. i’ve heard the audio book is good and I think I’m going to need a break from the Diviners before the next book so I should grab Gentleman’s Guide this month, perhaps!

    • I’m really hoping things are back to norm next week. More often than not it’s in the morning I get travel sick even on the train.

      I’ve got a hold on the Lady’s Guide audio too so may end up listening to it instead. My loan is fast running out on the ebook and I still haven’t started it. I need to get back into the Diviners series too, I’ve just not been in an audio mood.
