WWW Wednesdays #267 – May 6th

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 need to get cracking on my May blog tour reads, and I’m currently flying through Ash Mountain by Helen Fitzgerald. I really hope to finish it today! I’m also starting Tweet Cute by Emma Lord as I still seem to be in the mood for cute contemporaries.

  • WHAT DID YOU RECENTLY FINISH READING?

1. The One-In-A-Million Boy by Monica Wood (3/5 stars) REVIEW 08/05
I’ve been curious about The One-In-A-Million Boy ever since I first heard about it a few years back, and both the cover and blurb had me convinced I was going to enjoy my time with this story. Sadly, I somehow ended up having mixed thoughts instead… I’m not sure if it’s just the wrong time for me to read this story, as my reading taste has been all over the place in these strange times, but the fact is that I somehow expected more of this story.

2. Pet Sematary by Stephen King (4/5 stars) REVIEW 14/05
I’m planning on slowly making my way through Stephen King‘s backlist and as I’ve been wanting to watch the new movie adaption I decided to pick up Pet Sematary first… And I ended up having an excellent time reading this story. While I expected the story to be more creepy and full-scale horror than it turned out to be, as a paranormal thriller with psychological horror elements Pet Sematary still aimed to please.

3. Swipe Right by Stephie Chapman (3/5 stars) REVIEW 11/05
I’ve been in the mood for a good romcom and I thought that I had hit the nail on the head with Swipe Right… It’s by no means a bad read and I think romance fans will have a great time with this one, but there were a few things that bothered me enough to end up having mixed feelings about this one. And yes, that includes having more than one love triangle in the mix and basically an overload of cliches…

4. Reconstructing Amelia by Kimberly McCreight (3/5 stars) REVIEW 14/05
I’m not sure if the unpopular opinion curse has struck again, but the fact is that somehow Reconstructing Amelia and me didn’t get along as well as I thought we would. My reading mood has been all over the place lately, so this might just not have been the best time for me to read this story… But the fact is that I ended up having mixed thoughts about Reconstructing Amelia.

  • WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’LL READ NEXT?

I have one May blog tour read left: This Is How I Lied by Heather Gudenkauf. Afterwards, I will probably either start my Eddie Flynn series binge-read with The Defence by Steve Cavanagh or read Running Barefoot by Amy Harmon depending on what genre I’m in the mood for. I also have a new TBR jar pick: Evil At Heart by Chelsea Cain. I already wanted to continue this series some time soon, so I guess my TBR jar selecting this title is a sign I should do so! Probably not until after I finish the Eddie Flynn binge-read though.
