WWW Wednesday: 16th October 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 ReadingMonstrous Heart

I’ve been having trouble trying to decide what to read over the last few days but after starting and stopping about four different books I think I’ve finally settled on Monstrous Heart by Claire McKenna. This was an ARC I received from NetGalley a few weeks ago and it’s not out for ages so should probably be further down my reading list but it just seemed the kind of book I was in the mood for. I only started on Monday so very early days but I think I’m enjoying it. I have to confess I’m a little confused about what’s going on but I am liking the writing style and am still at the intrigued stage.

On audio I started listening to Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray. Again I only started it at the weekend so not made a lot of progress but so far so good and it seems like an appropriate read for the season.

Recently Finished

The Curse of Tenth Grave (Charley Davidson, #10)When Strangers Marry (Vallerands, #1)Blood Bound (Mercy Thompson, #2)

Three books finished this week, two of which were actually from my Spooktober TBR (three down, 9 to go) so I’m pretty happy with that. First up was The Curse of the Tenth Grave by Darynda Jones. This is the tenth book in the Charley Davidson series and I forgot how much I loved these books. It’s been a good six month since I read the previous book but it was very easy to fall back into the story. My biggest difficulty has been resisting going off to read the rest of the series.

After Charley Davidson I was still in the mood for something light and fluffy so decided to go for historical romance When Strangers Marry. I did kind of enjoy it but I don’t think it was anything special. It did make a nice change to find one that’s set in New Orleans.

The third book finished was Blood Bound, the second Mercy Thompson book, by Patricia Briggs. It’s been a few months since I read the first in the series so I did have my doubts about this but really, really liked it. I think it first came out in 2007, so I was worried it would be a bit dated but it’s really not. It also made for a pretty fantastic Halloween read with ghosts, vampires, werewolves and other creatures. It’s light on the romance and also genuinely creepy in a couple of places. I’m kind of tempted to read on.

Reading Next

I’m still planning to keep plugging away at my Spooktober TBR (I’m determined I will read everything on it) and I think I’m going to try and pick up The Wych Elm by Tana French next. With the Dublin Murders starting on TV, I’m in the mood for one of French’s books. I’d also like to pick up Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell. I’ve been really looking forward to it so not sure I’ll be able to resist for long.

Happy Reading ❤

    • That’s great to hear. Some of the reviews I saw of it were mixed so I’ve been putting it off a bit.

      I’ve watched the first couple of episodes of Dublin Murders and really enjoying it. I think it’s helping that I don’t remember the first couple of books that well .


    • I had never heard of that but having just googled I can imagine it’s very easy to get lost in all of the different theories. Apparently it’s the inspiration behind the book so maybe the author has an idea.


      • I watched episode 4 tonight. I like it although there’s really a lot crammed into it and I can’t get any grip on it other then that Jonathan, Shane etc have a big secret. 😆 If someone’s out for revenge (after so many years) I don’t know why they only picked Jonathan then to suffer. Very very strange and confusing.
