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 trying to get rid of my pile of most pressing ARCs so I can hopefully read more of my own books again in May… I’m currently reading The Final Chapter by Jerome Loubry, an original French thriller with a fascinating blurb. I’m also finally continuing with my Karin Slaughter reads with the Grant County sequel Kisscut.
- WHAT DID YOU RECENTLY FINISH READING?
1. Bridge Of Souls by Victoria Schwab (4,5/5 stars) REVIEW
It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Victoria Schwab‘s writing, and I’ve read just about everything she has written so far… I was originally going to save Bridge Of Souls for Halloween, but as that ment waiting for six months to finally read a most anticipated release of course I ended up caving in long before. Bridge Of Souls was everything I hoped it would be, and I will be keeping fingers and toes crossed that we will have more Cassidy Blake books in the future!
2. Silent Scream by Angela Marsons (4,5/5 stars) REVIEW
I’ve been meaning to start this series for years now, and somehow I never did until now… I guess the sequels quickly piling up made the series more and more daunting to start, but I’m still kicking myself for not scheduling a meeting with DI Kim Stone sooner. Silent Scream without doubt ticked all the boxes for me and I can’t wait to dive into the sequel ASAP.
3. The Great Greek Escape by Sue Roberts (3/5 stars) REVIEW 21/05
I’ve been craving more uplifting romance reads and I always love a story that takes me to a foreign destination, so I thought I was going to hit the jackpot with The Great Greek Escape. I mean, a Greek setting and the promise of a summer romance with a local? That sounded exactly like what I was looking for to take a little break from my darker reads. I’ve been looking forward to dive in, and to my surprise I ended up having mixed thoughts instead… And the fun, laugh-out-loud and sizzling romance read that was promised might have been just a tad false advertisement. More in my review…
4. Deadly Obsession by OMJ Ryan (4,5/5 stars) REVIEW
I’ve been following the Detective Jane Phillips series since the beginning, and I always seem to have a great time with each book. It’s no surprise that I wasn’t able to resist book number five Deadly Obsession, and I’m happy to say that it turned out to be one of my favorites of the series so far. An engaging writing style, a fascinating plot and serial killer character, lots of plot twists and suspense to keep you on the edge of your seat… Oh yes, if you enjoy detective thrillers you will be in for a treat with this one.
5. Ariadne by Jennifer Saint (3/5 stars) REVIEW 30/04
I had very high expectations for this one as I love a good mythology retelling and I kept hearing fantastic things about this one… I’m not sure if I simply wasn’t in the right mood to read Ariadne, but while the writing was good and I liked how it included multiple Greek mythology characters, I felt the so-called spark was missing for me.
- WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’LL READ NEXT?
I need something light next so I decided to turn to my ARC pile and pick up How Sweet It Is by Dylan Newton. I also want to continue the DI Kim Stone series and read First Blood soon… And I really should finally continue with the Rivers Of London series and read Whispers Underground. My copy has been collecting dust on my immediate physical TBR pile for ages! xD My latest TBR jar pick is still My Dark Vanessa by Kate Elizabeth Russell; I probably won’t be able to pick it up this month as I haven’t been in the mood for such a dark read after too many thriller ARCs.
