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?
Oh yes, I’m still reading The Stand by Stephen King, but that is mostly because I realized I was starting to fall behind with my June TBR/ARCs and I was in the mood for other genres as well, so I’ve been mostly focusing on other books. I’m 67% into the story right now, so it won’t be too hard to finish it by the end of the month still I guess. I’m currently reading another July ARC The Girl Behind The Wall by Mandy Robotham, which I hope to finish today. And as far as mood reading goes, I was in the mood for some romance so I will be starting People We Meet On Vacation by Emily Henry right after.
- WHAT DID YOU RECENTLY FINISH READING?
1. Float Plan by Trish Doller (4/5 stars) REVIEW
I love a travel angle in my stories, so I couldn’t resist adding Float Plan to my wishlist as soon as I read the blurb. The promise of a story about a sailboat journey as well as second chances sounded right up my alley, and I’ve been looking forward to dive in ever since. I ended up having an excellent time with this story and I can recommend it to anyone who enjoys a well written slowburn romance that combines a travel element with darker elements as well as a dose of hope.
2. Sunshine Over Bluebell Castle by Sarah Bennett (4/5 stars) REVIEW
After enjoying the first book of the Bluebell Castle trilogy last month, I knew I wanted to return to the castle and its characters sooner than later. They are a delightful bunch and I’ve been looking forward to see Arthur’s sister Iggy and her gardening skills in the spotlight this time around. And I definitely ended up having a great time with Sunshine Over Bluebell Castle!
3. The Lucky Eight by Sheila Bugler (4/5 stars) BLOG TOUR REVIEW 22/07
Look out for my thoughts during my stop of the blog tour!!
4. Play Dead by Angela Marsons (4,5/5 stars) REVIEW 18/06
I know that it took me long enough to finally start this series, but now that I’ve met Kim Stone I’m not letting go. Play Dead is already book number four and my fifth DI Kim Stone adventure, and this sequel has once again proven to me that the series is a worthy new favorite. Play Dead is another dark one and I loved the incorporation of the body farm into the plot.
5. The Right Side Of Reckless by Whitney D. Grandison (3/5 stars) REVIEW 08/07
I had high hopes for this one as the blurb sounded brilliant, but I ended up having mixed thoughts instead… There were things I liked, including the premise, the Mexican influences, second chances and dogs. BUT. I felt that the story was overlong and I wasn’t a fan at all of the whole cheating and love triangle angle.
6. The Good Lie by A.R. Torre (4,5/5 stars) REVIEW 12/07
I’ve been meaning to try her books for a while now, and I’m definitely kicking myself for not doing so sooner! I absolutely loved my time with this story; it was dark, suspenseful, highly addictive and definitely my kind of read. I loved the mix of legal thriller and the psychology angle as well as a more domestic approach on top of the serial killer element. Such a perfect thriller cocktail! I will definitely be reading more of her books soon.
- WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’LL READ NEXT?
Next up is another July ARC: The Hollows by Mark Edwards. I really enjoy his writing so I have been looking forward to it! Then it’s finally back to my original 20 Books Of Summer TBR with The Beekeeper Of Aleppo by Christy Lefteri and Broken Homes by Ben Aaronovitch. My newest TBR jar pick Red Winter by Dan Smith will probably have to wait until next month as I have other physical copies I want to get to first.
