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 another June ARC: The Family Tree by Steph Mullin and Nicole Mabry. I love a serial killer angle in my thrillers so I have high hopes for this one. I’m also starting Shipped by Angie Hockman as I’m in the mood for a romance read… I’ve heard mixed things, but I’ll see how things go I guess.
- WHAT DID YOU RECENTLY FINISH READING?
1. Take Me There by Carolee Dean (3/5 stars) REVIEW
This was a TBR jar pick and I honestly didn’t even remember I had in on my shelves… I was in the mood for a romance read though and I like road trip stories, so I thought I was going to have a great time reading Take Me There. Imagine my surprise when I ended up finding a completely different story instead, and both the cover and the blurb are mostly false advertisement. Trust me, this is NOT a romance read.
2. The Adventures Of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle (3,5/5 stars) NO REVIEW
I’ve decided to not review this title as it’s hard to review short story collections in the first place… Some stories were stronger than others and some were surprisingly predictable, but as a whole I still had a great time reading them.
3. Hostage by Clare Mackintosh (4,5/5 stars) REVIEW 11/06
I admit that it was hook, line and sinker as soon as I first read the blurb of Hostage. I mean, having what is basically a locked room type of story with a plane setting and hijacking element? How would I be able to resist such a story?! I’m glad I didn’t, because this turned out to be exactly the thriller dose I was craving and I literally couldn’t stop reading until I finished it in the small hours. Highly addictive, suspenseful, lots of action as well as a more personal angle… Oh yes, Hostage was without doubt a success for me.
4. The Last Train To Key West by Chanel Cleeton (4,5/5 stars) REVIEW 23/05
I had high expectations for this historical fiction story based on the true event of the 1935 Labor Day Hurricane, and I’m happy to say that my expectations once again were more than met. Chanel Cleeton‘s stories are simply a delight to read and I couldn’t stop reading once I met the three woman in the spotlight in this story.
5. The Mist by Ragnar Jonasson (3/5 stars) REVIEW 23/05
After feeling disappointed by the second book, I hoped the third and final book would be better for me… But sadly enough once again there was just something about the story that didn’t work for me. I think that already knowing what happened to the main character in the end kind of put a damper on things, as I wasn’t as invested in her past knowing where it would all end. The descriptions of the Icelandic setting are great though.
- WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’LL READ NEXT?
I will most likely pick up Every Vow You Break by Peter Swanson next as I’ve been curious to see how I will react to it considering there have been a lot of mixed reviews. It’s also time for another Kim Stone adventure with Lost Girls by Angela Marsons… And I’m trying to get all my June ARCs out of the way, so I’m also hoping to read blog tour ARC In Dark Water by Lynne McEwan. I’ve decided to keep my newest TBR jar pick Every Single Secret by Emily Carpenter on hold until next month, as I already finished two TBR jar picks this month in the first place and there are other mystery/thriller titles I want to read first.
