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 Venom by Bex Hogan as I wanted to read the sequel while memories of the first book were still fresh… I’m also starting upcoming ARC All The Murmuring Bones by A.G. Slatter, a dark gothic mer fairy tale I’m super excited about.
- WHAT DID YOU RECENTLY FINISH READING?
1. The Lost Apothecary by Sarah Penner (4/5 stars) BLOG TOUR REVIEW 04/03
Look out for my thoughts during my stop of the blog tour!
2. The Songbook Of Benny Lament by Amy Harmon (5/5 stars) REVIEW 11/03
It’s no secret that Amy Harmon is one of my absolute favorite authors, and I’ve been eagerly anticipating The Songbook Of Benny Lament ever since I first heard about it. I already knew this was going to happen, but I ended up being completely bowled over by this story! Don’t expect the full review to make much sense, as I’m now officially a fangirling blubbering mess. There is no way you can make me pick a favorite between her books, but what I can say is that The Songbook Of Benny Lament is among her best! Absolutely stunning and breathtakingly good.
3. The Enemy by Sarah Adams (4/5 stars) REVIEW 12/03
I really enjoyed my time with her writing in The Match recently, so I decided to pick up the sequel quickly when I saw in the mood for the genre again. And I most definitely liked what I found! If you are looking for something light and fun with a focus on food as well as friendship, a budding relationship and banter, The Enemy most definitely won’t disappoint.
4. Blindsighted by Karin Slaughter (4/5 stars) REVIEW 09/03
My goal this year is to finally catch up with the Karin Slaughter series, and I’m currently starting the Grant County books before I continue with the Will Grant series… Blindsighted has been a great start, and I quite like that the focus here is on medical examiner Sara instead of having your typical detective focus. Sure, there is still a lot of investigation going on, as Sara’s ex-husband and Police Chief Jeffrey plays a key role in the plot, but I like the balance between the two. And Karin Slaughter most definitely isn’t afraid to go dark, gruesome and twisted with this one!
5. These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong (3/5 stars) REVIEW 09/03
This was a buddy read with Kelly @ From Belgium With Book Love and we ended up having a great time with this one! I think I definitely enjoyed the story a lot more because of our buddy read and discussing what was happening along the way… Because the fact is: I ended up having mixed thoughts about These Violent Delights. There were things I loved, and other things that didn’t work for me that well… Although as a whole it was still entertaining enough for me to read the second book of the duology when it comes out.
6. The House In The Cerulean Sea by T.J. Klune (5/5 stars) REVIEW 14/03
People keep raving about this book and I most definitely understand the love for this story now! It was love at first sight with the writing style, and I enjoyed ever single moment with The House In The Cerulean Sea.
- WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’LL READ NEXT?
I’ve been slacking with my mystery/thriller reads so I’m going back to the genre for a bit… First up is upcoming ARC The Jigsaw Man by Nadine Matheson, which sounds like a promising (and twisted) serial killer thriller. I also want to finally pick up both Three Hours by Rosamund Lupton and One Of Us Is Next by Karen M. McManus… Although I will probably read TBR jar pick Inborn by Thomas Enger first.
