WWW Wednesday: 31st 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 Reading

Ummm….

Well I said I’d have a lot going on this week so I’d either be reading tons or nothing and it seems I’ve ended up on the nothing side. I’m getting a lot of building work done in the house so have been staying at my parents off and on since Sunday (for some reason they expect me to speak to them and not spend all my time reading). Have also been having both horse and cat issues so yeah… been struggling to find the time or focus to read anything.

Recently Finished

I had a few days off work at the end of last week and the weather was a little too hot for me so did manage to get a couple of books finished before the house/animal chaos started.The Girl in Red 

First up was The Girl in Red by Christina Henry, a book I’d been looking forward to for ages and it totally lived up to all expectations. Inspired by red riding hood it’s a post apocalyptic story about a girl called Red who’s making her way across the country to get to her Grandma’s cabin in the woods. From the very first page I was hooked and I can’t remember the last time I flew through a book like this so quickly. It reminded me a little of The Walking Dead (albeit without the zombies) and Red is such a brilliant character.

I also took Deanna’s at A Novel Glimpse’s advice and picked up Max Munroe’s Banking the Billionaire, the second book in their Billionaire Bad Boys series. I really enjoyed this but I have to admit I still liked the first one better.

Reading Next

Building work looks like it’s going to continue until the middle of next week so not sure if or what I’ll be reading next but I did manage to get a couple of books from NetGalley (I know, so much for the ban) that I’m really excited about. Both Adam Silvera and Tess Gerritsen are favourite authors.

Infinity Son (Infinity Cycle, #1)The Shape of Night

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.

I will apologise in advance if I’m slow in coming back. I don’t really have access to my laptop and don’t have wi-fi at my parents so am dependent on my phone’s data which isn’t always that great.

Happy Reading ❤

    • It was so good. Been a while since I’ve devoured a book so quickly. I do love Henry’s writing.

      I’m looking forward to Silvera’s book. I would probably read just about anything he writes though and he does tend to go down some interesting routes. I loved They Both Die at the End, such a brilliant concept.

    • I think I just like the You’ve got mail vibe in the first one. With Banking it all fell into place a little too easily for me. I do love Thatch though.

      Thanks, cat is causing me so much stress. He was throwing up half the night. Not much sleep has been had.

  1. I know all about horse issues 😂 I feel like I need to start a subscription to my vet. Hope everything calms down for you soon, so you can get back to reading 🙂

  2. I hope life grants you more time to read soon! 😉 I can’t wait to get a copy of Infinity Son… I’m so curious to see how he tackles the fantasy genre! Have a wonderful week and happy reading. xx

    • Me too. I seem to be spending all of my time dealing with crisis after crisis.

      Very excited about Infinity Son, I’m putting it off at the moment as concentration is shot to hell but as soon as I get some proper time I’ll be diving right in
