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 my final September ARC: Ashes In The Snow by Oriana Ramunno… Which is a WWII fiction translation set in Auschwitz. I will also be starting Heartstopper: Volume 2 by Alice Oseman because the first volume ended in the middle of the story and I want to know what happens next.

  • WHAT DID YOU RECENTLY FINISH READING?

1. The Lucky One by Jessica Payne (4/5 stars) REVIEW 19/09
I have a weak spot for thrillers with a serial killer angle, and I couldn’t resist the temptation to add The Lucky One to my shelves when I discovered the story offered exactly that. I’ve been looking forward to read it ever since, and I have to say that this psychological thriller definitely ended up delivering for me. Suspenseful, engaging, fast-paced and filled with danger and twists: The Lucky One is perfect for those who like their psychological thrillers on the dark side.

2. Heartstopper: Volume 1 by Alice Oseman (4/5 stars) REVIEW 25/09
I’ve been curious about the Heartstopper books for a while now… I don’t really read graphic novels all that much, but I needed one for the Beat The Backlist Bingo challenge and I decided it was the perfect excuse to finally try the first volume. Especially since I’ve enjoyed Alice Oseman‘s writing in regular novels in the past. And I definitely understand why so many love this series! This is such an adorable read and I had a brilliant time getting to know Charlie and Nick.

3. Sometimes People Die by Simon Stephenson (DNF 12%; 0 stars) REVIEW 20/09
Right… I certainly didn’t expect this to happen when I first heard about Sometimes People Die. I don’t read medical thrillers often enough, and the promise of a murder mystery with a medical angle sounded fantastic. I fully expected to have a brilliant time with this story, and it might just have been my fickle reading mood acting up again, but the fact is that somehow Sometimes People Die and me REALLY didn’t get along. More about the why behind the DNF in my review.

4. A Familiar Stranger by A.R. Torre (4,5/5 stars) REVIEW 26/09
Holy wow, A.R. Torre has done it again!! I’ve highly enjoyed her thrillers in the past… There is something strangely addictive about her writing style, and she somehow manages to make me forget about certain bookish pet peeves and blow me away with her stories. The truth is that I was a tad worried about A Familiar Stranger, because I’m never a fan of a cheating angle (and less if it’s actively happening on the page). I couldn’t resist the temptation to spend more time with her writing though, and I’m glad I didn’t because I ended up having an absolute blast with this story.

5. The No-Show by Beth O’Leary (3,5/5 stars) REVIEW 25/09
I’ve enjoyed Beth O’Leary‘s work in the past, although her previous book was a bit of a miss for me… And I honestly wasn’t too sure what to make of The No-Show either with the blatantly cheating angle being presented in the blurb. Still, I was too curious to stay away for long, and I ended up giving in and reading this title anyway. I’m glad for those warnings to stick with this story even though it doesn’t immediately speak to you, because I don’t think I would have gotten to the good part otherwise. It took me a LONG time to warm up to this story, but in the end it’s worth it.

  • WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’LL READ NEXT?

I need to start with my October ARCs, and first up are legal thriller City Dark by Roger A. Canaff and most anticipated release Keep It In The Family by John Marrs. After that, I will probably pick up Happy Endings At Mermaids Point by Sarah Bennett to switch genres. I also hope to read my newest TBR jar pick The Most Beautiful Girl In Cuba by Chanel Cleeton some time before the end of the month.
