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 seem to be heading towards a reading slump to combine with the already stubborn blogging slump… Sigh. I’ve decided to put all non-ARCs on hold and focus on finishing those pending ARCs due in the next two-three months, and take a break afterwards. I’m currently reading a cozy mystery set in the 1920s jazz world: A Baffling Murder At The Midsummer Ball by T.E. Kinsey. I’ll also be starting another Josie Quinn sequel Her Deadly Touch by Lisa Regan.
- WHAT DID YOU RECENTLY FINISH READING?
1. Starlight Over Bluebell Castle by Sarah Bennett (4/5 stars) REVIEW
I confess that I don’t usually read Christmas themed stories unless it’s December, but after highly enjoying the first two books of this trilogy, I didn’t want to wait five months until reading Tristan’s story.m Starlight Over Bluebell Castle has once again confirmed to me that Sarah Bennett‘s writing and me are a perfect match, and I love the way she writes her romances. This is such a sweet and adorable read!
2. The Devil’s Advocate by Steve Cavanagh (5/5 stars) REVIEW 23/07
This is probably one of my favorite thriller series and I’ve been highly anticipated this sixth book… And I have to say that it more than lived up to expectations! I always love my time with Eddie Flynn and the rest of the gang, and they have without doubt another dangerous and twisted case on their hands. Racial discrimination, white nationalism, violence, highly disturbing characters, innocent men being condemned to death… Oh yes, The Devil’s Advocate isn’t afraid to go dark and touch some pitchblack topics, but it is a brilliant read if you can stomach it.
3. The Second Blind Son by Amy Harmon (5/5 stars) REVIEW 15/07
It is no secret that Amy Harmon is one of my absolute favorite authors and I basically love just about everything she writes. I LOVED the first book set in Saylok, The First Girl Child, when I read it back in 2019, and this new story set in the same high fantasy world is just as brilliant. Norse mythology elements, fantastic character development, the return of old favorite characters as well as new ones, brilliant writing… And I can go on and on. Without doubt one of my highlights this year!
- WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’LL READ NEXT?
As I said before, I’m trying to get my upcoming ARCs out of the way so I can take a break, and the next four titles are just about the last I need to read. First up is probably The Library by Bella Osborne to take a little break in between thrillers, and afterwards it’s The Chateau by Catherine Cooper and The Noise by J.D. Barker & James Patterson. Last but not least is another romance written by fellow book blogger Claire Huston: Elle’s A To Z Of Love. I’ve been looking forward to this one!
