WWW Wednesdays #108 – October 26th

wwwwednesdays

WWW WEDNESDAYS is a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On A World Of Words and is all about answering the three questions below.

  • WHAT ARE YOU CURRENTLY READING?

I’m currently reading The Good Sisters by Helen Phifer and I’m loving every minute of it so far. It’s without doubt a proper Halloween read complete with haunted house and everything! I can’t wait to continue reading it later today to find out what happens next… I’ve also started The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson, but I couldn’t really get into it. I’m only a few pages into the story so far, but I’ve decided to keep it on hold until I’m in the mood for it.

  • WHAT DID YOU RECENTLY FINISH READING?

* I first finished Faithful by Alice Hoffman, which turned out to be a really interesting read despite my initial doubts. I know this book has mixed reviews, but I found it both well written and intriguing. The characters are well developed and feel real, and even though Shelby is not exactly likeable, you grow to love her anyway. Interesting story on how grief and guilt can change a person and how hard it is to move on.
* I then read The Adventures Of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain, and I can’t say I fell in love with this classic. I already knew the basic story and I’m not saying it’s a bad read, but I didn’t enjoy it as much as I thought I would. Too many religious references and I just couldn’t get a proper feeling for the story.
* The last book I finished since last week is Worth Killing For by Ed James, and I think I enjoyed this sequel even better than the first book. Fast-paced and packed with action scenes; this crime thriller is definitely a great choice for any fan of the genre. And that ending! I will be waiting for the third book to come out to find out more…

  • WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’LL READ NEXT?

The Scholl Case by Anja Reich-Osang has been on my Netgalley list for a while now, so I should really read that title next… Although I might read Bad Girls Don’t Die by Katie Alender first since I have been neglecting my Halloween TBR way too much this month. Anything For Her by Jack Jordan is also on my to-do list, and my nex TBR jar pick will be A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman. I’ve heard so many great things about this novel that I can’t wait to finally pick it up!

    • The Good Sisters was SO good!! It’s definitely a paranormal horror read; without revealing too much, it’s basically a haunted convent… Mostly psychological and really well written.

  1. I’m going to be kicking myself for not requesting the Good Sisters but I really can’t add anymore NetGalley books to my tbr mountain. Very glad you enjoyed Faithful as it’s one of the books I haven’t gotten to yet. I think the reviews made me wary.

    • I hope you will enjoy Faithful! I started with low expectations because I have seen mixed reviews as well, but I ended up enjoying it. And The Good Sisters was so good!! Definitely the perfect creepy Halloween read, although I can understand not wanting to request more Netgalley titles. I kind of should have done the same haha. 😉

    • Same here; I got it a while back and somehow ended up neglecting it for way too long because I kept seeing mixed reviews… I end up really enjoying Faithful though. I hope you will as well!

  2. I remember enjoying The Unexpected Everything but too bad it’s not working for you. But I hope you find it more interesting the next time you read it. I also have A Man Called Ove in audiobook but haven’t had the time to listen to it yet. And yes, there are a lot of good reviews about it! 🙂
