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?
April is quickly turning into an impromptu ARC April month, but I’m taking a little break to read Other People’s Houses by Abbi Waxman. I’ve been meaning to read more of her books ever since meeting Nina Hill last year. Afterwards it’s back to ARCs with Thirty-One Bones by Morgan Cry. I love the sound of the blurb and Spanish setting of this crime thriller!
- WHAT DID YOU RECENTLY FINISH READING?
1. The Runaway Bride by Mary Jayne Baker (4/5 stars) REVIEW 29/04
I’ve learned to enjoy a good romance read as a break in between my thriller reads especially in the past year. There was just something about The Runaway Bride that caught my eye immediately, and I’m glad that I gave the book a chance as I ended up having an excellent time with it. While heavier than initially expected, this story will take you on a journey that you cannot help but cross your fingers and toes for will end on a high note… Emotional, deep, sometimes even frustrating, but also hopeful, engaging and with just the right dose of humor.
2. Just Get Home by Bridget Foley (4,5/5 stars) REVIEW
I admit that it was hook, line, and sinker as soon as I read the blurb of Just Get Home. Between the earthquake and the promise of an action-packed disaster thriller with an almost dystopian feel, I knew I simply HAD to read this story. And my instinct didn’t lead me astray, as Just Get Home turned out to be an absolutely fanastic story that I was unable to put down until I reached that final page. It’s a story that crosses genre boundaries to create a plot that is both unique, intense and basically an emotional rollercoaster.
3. Facets Of Death by Michael Stanley (4/5 stars) BLOG TOUR REVIEW
Even though this series has been on my radar for quite some time, somehow it has managed to slip between the cracks of my TBR mountain until now… And I’m definitely kicking myself for not finding time for this series sooner now that I have had the chance to read this prequel! Although I guess Facets Of Death also ended up being a great way to finally introduce myself to Detective Kubu right at the beginning of his career. And I will most definitely come back for more in the future!
4. The Off Limits Rule by Sarah Adams (4/5 stars) REVIEW 17/04
I’m a fan of Sarah Adams‘ romantic comedies ever since I read the first one not that long ago, and every book so far has only confirmed to me that her style of romance writing and me are a great fit. The Off Limits Rule was yet another excellent read for me, and I literally found myself flying through it. Sure, I was a bit annoyed by the whole Cooper being absolutely gorgeous with the abs and everything, and Lucy’s whole ‘he’s so out of my league‘ being repeated endlessly… But as a whole, they were able to win me over and I really liked their banter and growing connection along the way.
5. Flesh And Blood by Caroline Mitchell (4/5 stars) REVIEW 15/04
I know I can always turn to Caroline Mitchell when I’m in the mood for a good detective thriller, and I’ve been really enjoying this series so far. This is already DI Amy Winter book number four, and without doubt another suspenseful and entertaining read!
6. The Source by Sarah Sultoon (/5 stars) BLOG TOUR REVIEW 18/04
Look out for my thoughts during my stop of the blog tour!!
- WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’LL READ NEXT?
Next up is Her Last Holiday by C.L. Taylor… I’ve been looking forward to this one as I always enjoy her books. I’m also finally going to meet DI Kim Stone with Silent Scream by Angela Marsons. No more excuses! My ARC of Ariadne by Jennifer Saint is due soon as well and I’m looking forward to dive into mythology again. My latest TBR jar pick is still My Dark Vanessa by Kate Elizabeth Russell; I probably won’t be able to pick it up until after I finish at least a couple more pending ARCs.
