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.
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?
After quite a bit of dithering, I decided to read NetGalley ARC Foul is Fair by Hannah Capin. I only started it on Sunday but after a bit of a wobbly start when I wasn’t sure if I liked the writing style I am now flying through it. I can be a bit dense at times so didn’t realise this was a YA contemporary retelling of Macbeth despite the clue being in the title. I studied Macbeth at school and while that was a really long time ago this is bringing it all back (in a good way). It may be a little obvious at times (the characters are Mack, Duffy, Duncan, Banks etc) but it’s very cleverly done and I can’t wait to see if the ending’s the same.
I’m also slowly but surely working my way through Joe Hill’s collection of short stories, Full Throttle. I’ve read three of thirteen which were pretty good but nothing stand out as yet. I suspect this one will be on my list for a while.
And, speaking of books on my list for a while, I’m still listening to Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray. I have made some progress, think I’ve managed another couple of hours, but it’s a long one so will probably take a while. Thankfully I’m enjoying it and not in any rush.
Only one book finished this week and really I had it finished last Wednesday so I don’t know what I’ve been doing with my time. I think I just had too many books and couldn’t decide what to read so didn’t really start anything till Sunday.
Anyway, the one book I did finish was A Wedding in December by Sarah Morgan. I do love Sarah Morgan’s Christmas themed books and this was no exception. I did occasionally wonder if it was a little too sweet and fluffy, I wanted a bit more heat and conflict, but it is the perfect read for the season. Unfortunately I am now going to have to move to Aspen so I too can enjoy a romantic white Christmas. Not sure how good the wifi is there so this may be my final post 🙂
I’m persevering in my plan to read predominantly ARCs this month so I think I’m probably going to pick up either The Alibi Girl by CJ Skuse next or maybe Into the Crooked Place by Alexandra Christo. It’ll probably depend on my mood although I suspect something lighter and less murdery will be needed after Foul is Fair.
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 ❤
