WWW Wednesdays #159 – January 17th

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 almost finished with The Silent Girls by Dylan Young, which is turning out to be a really good start of a new detective series. I’m about to start The New Hunger by Isaac Marion as well, a Warm Bodies novella I’ve been meaning to read for a while. I still have to get a copy of the sequel; hopefully some time this year… I’m not a big zombie fan, but I remember enjoying the first book.

  • WHAT DID YOU RECENTLY FINISH READING?

1. The Ends Of The World by Maggie Hall (3/5 stars) REVIEW 27/01
I picked up this title as part of my goal to finish more series this year… I really enjoyed the first two books of this trilogy so I was looking forward to it, but unfortunately The Ends Of The World ended up disappointing me. Too much focus on the romance and political background and the spark of the previous books was completely missing. The international settings saved this final book for me, but all in all not the thrilling ending I was expecting.

2. The Hating Game by Sally Thorne (4/5 stars) REVIEW 27/01
Oh yes, I definitely know why so many people love this book now. Because even though I’m not into romance and hate both sexy scenes and love triangles, Sally Thorne made me completely forget about that and I had a blast reading this one. Even though there are a lot of cliches in this book and the whole ‘gorgeous, gorgeous, I’m drooling’ thing can get annoying, somehow the dynamics worked and resulted in a highly entertaining read.

3. Deep Blue Trouble by Steph Broadribb (4,5/5 stars) REVIEW 22/01
I messed up and didn’t realise this was actually a sequel, but besides a few confusing first pages it wasn’t that hard to follow the story without the background info. This was one firecracker of a thriller and such a good read! I loved the bounty hunter angle and both the writing and plot are excellent. Highly recommended for sure.

  • WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’LL READ NEXT?

I did it again, misbehaved and requested another Bookouture thriller… And since the publish date is today, I want to read Vanishing Girls by Lisa Regan ASAP. As part of the whole finishing my series goal, I’m probably picking up The Last Star by Rick Yancey afterwards even though I’m not a big fan of the first two books… I want to read The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater for the same reason, but I might wait a little until I have time to binge-read all three books since I have a few other titles I want to get to as well. My latest TBR jar pick is still Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly.

  1. I need to read more detective books! I’m really into watching that type of stuff on TV, so I am sure I would love reading about it. Glad to see you really liked The Hating Game. I need to pick it up ASAP! Currently listening to the Dream Thieves now, but it’s been a slow start for me. Hopefully it starts picking up soon though. I checked out the rest of the books in the series from my library, so I’ll probably binge the entire series hopefully this month.

    • I love detective TV series as well! I’m a true addict haha, I gues it’s one of the reasons I read so many thrillers. 😉 I can definitely recommend The Hating Game! And I hope The Dream Thieves will pick up soon for you. 🙂

  2. I’m glad The Hating Game was as good as you hoped – it’s definitely a book I’ll be looking out for now. 🙂 The Silent Girls sounds like a great first book in a series so I might have to grab a copy of that too – I’m looking for some new detective series to start this year. Hope you enjoy the books you have coming up this week 🙂

    • If you are looking for a new detective series, The Silent Girls is a great one! The main character is a detective investigating cold cases and the first book is great. Definitely one that will be on my radar from now on!

    • Haha I was a bit surprised I ended up enjoying The Hating Game that much myself… But I guess I can enjoy a good romance novel if it’s the right story and author. (I’ve loved a few CoHo novels in the past as well as Julie Buxbaum’s books for example)
