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 most anticipated release Book Lovers by Emily Henry… I keep hearing great things and I’m excited to be reading it myself! I will also be starting upcoming July blog tour ARC The Librarian Spy by Madeline Martin; a WWII historical fiction story with a bookish angle. The premise of this story sounds fantastic, so I have high hopes for it.

  • WHAT DID YOU RECENTLY FINISH READING?

1. The Mutant Mushroom Takeover by Summer Rachel Short (4/5 stars) REVIEW 21/07 
I confess that I only decided to read this title because it had the (apparently VERY difficult to find!) mushrooms on the cover I needed for one of the prompts for the Beat The Backlist Bingo challenge. I don’t usually read a lot of MG books, but between the blurb and comparison to Stranger Things I was hoping this story would work for me. And The Mutant Mushroom Takeover ended up being such a pleasant surprise! I had so much fun reading this story and I loved the science and naturalist focus.

2. Her Final Breath by Robert Dugoni (3,5/5 stars) REVIEW 21/07
I accidently requested a copy of book number nine without realizing it was part of a series not that long ago, and I’ve decided that I’m going to try and catch up with the whole Tracy Crosswhite series before it’s due in August. Madness or not, Her Final Breath is book number two and my fourth time of meeting up with main character Tracy Crosswhite after reading the first two novellas. And I’m definitely starting to understand why this series is so popular!

3. Nine Lives by Peter Swanson (4,5/5 stars) REVIEW 23/07
I have more than one Peter Swanson book on my favorites list, but I’ve been a bit hesitant to pick up his newest title Nine Lives after a total miss with his previous book. I became even more worried when I saw the mixed reviews popping up… But when I decided to pick up my copy anyway, I ended up having an excellent time with it. I guess it’s a reverse unpopular opinion this time around? I do get why Nine Lives isn’t for everyone, because there are so many different POVs and characters to keep track of and it can be a bit of a struggle in the beginning.

4. The Locked-Away Life by Drew Davies (3/5 stars) REVIEW 22/07
There was just something about the blurb of The Locked-Away Life that intrigued me immediately. It probably had a lot to do with the promise of an older main character as well as two completely different characters becoming unlikely friends… I tend to enjoy both in a story, and I fully expected to have a great time with this contemporary. Somehow I ended up having mixed thoughts instead, although I still can’t put my finger exactly on the why. It might simply not have been the right time for me to read this story, but the fact remains that I didn’t enjoy this story as much as I thought I would.

5. The Line by Rachel Lynch (4/5 stars) REVIEW 19/07
I can never resist a thriller with an international setting, and I admit I was sold as soon as I first read the blurb of The Line. The setting on Cyprus and the diving angle alone were enough for me to convince myself I wanted to read this story, although I confess I didn’t realize at the time it was actually the second book of a series. Thankfully I’ve had time to catch up before reading this sequel, and both books have brought this series firm on my radar.

6. Finlay Donovan Knocks ‘Em Dead by Elle Cosimano (4,5/5 stars) REVIEW 23/07
I had such a fantastic time with the first book last month that I simply couldn’t resist picking up the sequel Finlay Donovan Knocks ‘Em Dead ASAP for another dose of Finlay and Vero. And I have to say that I knew this was going to be another winner for me almost as soon as I started reading it. There is just something about the writing style, tone and humor that is spot on for me, and the fact that both Finlay and Vero are such brilliant characters helps a lot of course. Sure, the plot is completely bonkers, not exactly credible and way over the top, but it is ment to be this way and I loved every single minute of it.

7. Killed by Thomas Enger (4/5 stars) REVIEW 24/07
I’ve been slowly working my way through the Henning Juul books these last couple of months, and Killed is book number five and the final book of the series. Which means that I’ve finally managed to cross another pending series off my list again! And what a finale it was… There is no doubt that this series ended on a strong note and Killed is probably one of the best books of the series. The ominous feel of the previous books grows even stronger and the sense of danger is sky high while you race through the pages of this final book. What a way to end the series with a bang!

  • WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’LL READ NEXT?

I need to work on my August ARCs, so I will probably pick up Daisy Darker by Alice Feeney next. I’ve been looking forward to this one! I’m also going to try and see if I can catch up with the Tracy Crosswhite series by Robert Dugoni before the ARC is due, which means six more books including In The Clearing before book nine is published August 23rd. I might end up doing a series binge-read, but I do have a bunch of other books I want to read first… Including another original 20 Books Of Summer title: Meet Me In Paradise by Libby Hubscher. My newest TBR jar pick The Ladies Of The Secret Circus by Constance Sayers will probably have to wait until August because I have a pile of other titles I need/want to get to first.
