WWW Wednesdays #255 – February 12th

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 Unlikely Pilgrimage Of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce, and basically the only reason I haven’t finished it yet is that we went on an impromtu camping trip these last few days and I didn’t have much time to read. I fully expect to finish it today though! Afterwards I’m finally starting my first series binge-read with Deep Down Dead by Steph Broadribb. I loved my first encounter with Lori and I definitely can’t wait to (re)read all books in order!

WHAT DID YOU RECENTLY FINISH READING?

1. Perfume by Patrick Süskind (4/5 stars) REVIEW 28/02
This story had intrigued me ever since I first watched the movie years back, but somehow it took me a long time to finally make time for the original story. I’m definitely glad I finally did read the book! Patrick Süskind has a way with his words that really makes the descriptions come alive and Grenouille’s story is both horrifying and absolutely fascinating at the same time. I already knew what was going to come as I’ve seen the movie muliple times, but even so I highly enjoyed reading this modern classic.

2. Death Deserved by Jørn Lier Horst & Thomas Enger (4,5/5 stars) BLOG TOUR REVIEW 20/02
Look out for my full review during my stop of the blog tour!

3. Things In Jars by Jess Kidd (4,5/5 stars) REVIEW 17/02
I won a gorgeous hardback copy of Things In Jars in a giveaway last year, but somehow it took me way longer than expected to actually read it… I’m kicking myself now, because it was an absolutely brilliant read. The wonderful prose only enhances that Victorian London feel of the plot, I loved the hint of the surreal and the Irish folklore and this is definitely magical realism and Gothic mystery at its best. The unique and diverse cast of characters, the folklore, the plot, the writing, the suspense… There is so much to love!

  • WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’LL READ NEXT?

After finishing my current reads, I’ll continue my series binge-read with book two and three of the Lori Anderson series: Deep Blue Trouble and Deep Dirty Truth. I might even read the fourth book too depending on if I feel like writing a blog tour review haha. I also can’t wait to finally pick up my ARC of Amy Harmon‘s newest story Where The Lost Wander. I absolutely love her work and I fully expect this one to be another favorite! My latest TBR jar pick is still The Way Back To You by Michelle Andreani & Mindi Scott, which I’ll probably pick up soon as I love roadtrip stories and it would be a perfect break in between my thriller series binges. 😉
