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 the fourth Tracy Crosswhite book The Trapped Girl by Robert Dugoni… And I will be starting book five Close To Home straight after. If I continue at this pace, it looks like I might actually catch up before the ARC of book nine is due!

  • WHAT DID YOU RECENTLY FINISH READING?

1. The Wild Girls by Phoebe Morgan (4/5 stars) REVIEW 29/07 
I’ve been meaning to try one of Phoebe Morgan’s books for quite some time now, and with the Botswana setting it was The Wild Girls I wanted to get to first. The blurb sounded SO good with the remote lodge setting and apparently at least one of them not making it to the end… And I’m happy to say that I most definitely enjoyed my time with this story. There is just something about the writing style and pace that makes it extremely easy to keep turning those pages, and I simply couldn’t put it down.

2. The Man Who Died Twice by Richard Osman (4/5 stars) REVIEW 29/07
I remember enjoying the first book of the series, and I’ve been meaning to pick up book two The Man Who Died Twice ever since it was published last year… It took me longer than expected, but I’m definitely glad I finally did do so. This sequel was definitely even more successful than the first book for me!

3. Third Wheel by Nick Spalding (2/5 stars) REVIEW 19/08
There was just something about Third Wheel that had me intrigued immediately. Between the fun cover and blurb I was looking forward to what sounded like a hilarious social media focused story, and I fully expected to have a great time with it. Sadly the complete opposite happened, and I ended up struggling considerably with this story… Up until the point I started to wonder whether I should simply DNF it. Oh yes, there is no doubt that this story and me weren’t a right fit after all.

4. Stay Awake by Megan Goldin (4,5/5 stars) REVIEW 09/08
I had a fantastic time with Megan Goldin‘s previous two books, so of course I couldn’t resist the invitation to read her newest story Stay Awake. The fact that the blurb itself is fascinating and that it promised an amnesia angle AND murder only made me want to read it even more… I had such high expectations for this book, and I’m happy to announce that they were more than met. I was hooked as soon as I started reading, and I couldn’t put it down. I literally finished it in one sitting!

5. The Beach Party by Amy Sheppard (3/5 stars) REVIEW 16/08
There was something about the blurb of The Beach Party that spoke to me with its beach setting and one of the people attending the party ending up dead. I was curious to see where the story would go and what happened to Lacey, and I’ve been looking forward to read it. Somehow, this book ended up being a mixed bag for me instead, and unfortunately it wasn’t as good as I hoped it would be. More about the why in my review.

  • WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’LL READ NEXT?

I will most likely read Carrie Soto Is Back by Taylor Jenkins Reid next because I don’t want to wait any longer. I have such high hopes for this book because I tend to love her work! I also finally want to read Every Last Secret by A.R. Torre, and I should probably continue with my Tracy Crosswhite series read with book number six A Steep Price by Robert Dugoni. My latest TBR jar pick The Ladies Of The Secret Circus by Constance Sayers will have to wait until mid August at least because I have a pile of other titles I need/want to get to first.
