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 listening to an audio ARC of The Secret Life Of Albert Entwistle by Matt Cain. I’ve been wanting to read this story ever since I first heard about it, so I’m excited to be finally doing so! I will also be starting Scarred by Thomas Enger so I will hopefully be able to finish another series soon.

  • WHAT DID YOU RECENTLY FINISH READING?

1. The Little Captain by Paul Biegel (4/5 stars) REVIEW 26/05
I must have read multiple books by Paul Biegel back when I was little… While I don’t remember if I actually read the adventures of The Little Captain in Dutch back then, I thought this new release of the English translation was the perfect excuse to try one of his books as an adult. What I didn’t realize was that this version is actually a bundle including all three books: The Little Captain, The Little Captain And The Seven Towers and The Little Captain And The Pirate Treasure. Not that I’m complaining of course, because it ment that I was able to read all three stories in one go! And I can definitely see why I enjoyed his books when I was younger, because this is a great story for both young and old.

2. The Song Of David by Amy Harmon (5/5 stars) REVIEW 19/05
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I consider Amy Harmon to be one of my absolute favorite authors and I’ve loved every single book I’ve tried so far. The Song Of David is one of my final pending backlist titles and already book number sixteen by this author; in a way I’m sad to be running out of new stories to read while I wait for her newest publication, but after loving the first book there was no way I was going to wait long before meeting up with the characters again. And I’m glad I didn’t, because I loved The Song Of David even more than the first book!

3. The Guilty Couple by C.L. Taylor (3,5/5 stars) REVIEW 14/06
I tend to enjoy C.L. Taylor’s writing, and I’ve been looking forward to read The Guilty Couple ever since I first heard about it. The blurb sounded intriguing with the wrongful conviction and the wife deciding to bring down her husband, the man who framed her; definitely perfect building blocks to build your psychological thriller around. And while there were a few things that prevented me from giving this story the highest rating, as a whole it definitely turned out to be a highly entertaining and suspenseful ride.

4. Of Light And Darkness by Shayne Leighton (2/5 stars) REVIEW 24/05
I decided on a whim to browse my kindle freebies and read an older title or two to help get rid of the backlist… The cover of Of Light And Darkness intrigued me and I was in the mood for some fantasy, so I decided to go in blind and just read it. I guess I probably should have read the blurb first, because vampire stories and me don’t tend to get along… This didn’t even end up being my main issue with this story though. More in my shorties review.

5. Deadly Motives by Ann Girdharry (3,5/5 stars) REVIEW 24/05
I remember getting a copy of Deadly Motives during a Bloodhound Books Christmas promo back in 2020, but somehow it had slipped between the cracks of my TBR mountain until now. I do love a good detective thriller and having a serial killer angle always earns extra points, so when I was browsing backlist titles to read I couldn’t resist finally picking it up. While I do have to say it took me a little while to get in the groove and get used to the writing style, once I did I ended up having a great time with this one.

  • WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’LL READ NEXT?

I put Broken by Karin Slaughter temporarily on hold last week because I wasn’t in the mood to deal with Lena… But since I probably never will be, I want to pick it up anyway after my current reads. I also should read The Murder At The Vicarage by Agatha Christie so that I can get my first title in for the Reading Through The Centuries challenge… After that, I might pick up my final (for now) June ARC and blog tour read The German Wife by Kelly Rimmer. My latest TBR jar pick Master Class by Christina Dalcher most likely will have to wait until the end of May because I have a bunch of other titles I want/need to read first.
