WWW Wednesday: 22 July 2020

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 ReadingOur Little Cruelties

I’ve decided to put Every Sky a Grave on hold for the moment as I’m just not in the right mood for it and it was getting to the stage where I was avoiding all reading. I will go back to it but for now I’m going to read what I want in hopes of regaining my reading mojo. At the moment, what I want is Our Little Cruelties by Liz Nugent. I love Liz Nugent’s book, they’re always so dark and twisty. I’m only a couple of chapters in but so far so good.

I had to return the audio of Red Rising to the library before I managed to finish it but I’m not too fussed as I have a few other audio’s lined up. I also managed to get a copy of The Gentleman’s Guide to Getting Lucky by Mackenzi Lee from the library so am currently listening to it. It’s only around 2 hours long so I’ve made very good progress with it already.

Recently Finished

It’s been a pretty good reading week for me as I finished three books and loved every single one of them. I also managed to read a sci fi and a YA fantasy (well kind of), two genres I haven’t really picked up in months (I don’t count Illuminae files as listened to it on audio so felt more like watching a movie than reading a book).

Take a Hint, Dani Brown (The Brown Sisters, #2)All Systems Red (The Murderbot Diaries, #1)Fable (Fable, #1)

  • Take a Hint, Dani Brown by Talia Hibbert – As soon as I saw the cover and read the synopsis I had a good feeling about this story and I was so right. Danika Brown is absolutely fabulous as a character, romantic interest Zafar Ansari is the sweetest guy ever and who doesn’t love a fake dating story. There are a few more serious moments but this was just such a fun read and there was so much heat in that romance I’m surprised my e-reader didn’t go up in flames.
  • All Systems Red by Martha Wells – Everyone has been raving about the murderbot diaries and now that I’ve read the first novella in the series I know what all the fuss was about. I mean, it’s too bloomin short and I want more but what there was I loved. I probably related a bit too much to murderbot who tries to avoid those pesky humans and has a general couldn’t care less attitude to anything other than entertainment shows but I did love how it/they (?) developed over the course of the story. I loved the writing and the story and yep I can’t wait to read the next adventure.
  • Fable by Adrienne Young – I actually kind of regret reading this now. Not because it was bad but because it was really good and it’s the first in a series so now I have a bit of a wait for book two. Yes, it’s predictable and has a lot of the usual tropes but the writing was wonderful, there’s plenty of pirate style action and adventure, a smidge of romance and likeable characters.

Reading Next

I made the mistake of placing quite a few holds on library books and needless to say they all came in at the same time (why does this always happen). Anyways, given I now have around 16 days to read around 10 books *eek* I figure they are moving to the top of my reading list. First up I think will probably be The Shelf by Holly Acton or Watch Him Die by Craig Robertson, although I’ve just realised that’s book 8 in a series so maybe not. I also have a new book club book The Music Shop by Rachel Joyce that I should probably make a start on.

The ShelfWatch Him Die (Narey & Winter, #8)The Music Shop: From the bestselling author of The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry

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 🙂

  1. I only read the first book in Murderbot and I definitely need to revisit it because I’d love to read the rest of the series. I’ve also been curious about Fable and have been hearing really good things about it, so I’m glad you liked it too. Happy reading!

  2. Ha, I feel the same way about Fable. I want to read it SO BAD, but I don’t want to get stuck waiting. Happy reading!

    Here’s my WWW Wednesday post.
