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 Detective Jane Phillips sequel Deadly Craving by OMJ Ryan; I’ve followed this series since book one, so I couldn’t resist getting an ARC of book eight even though the deadline was tight. I will also be starting Nordic noir sequel Blackout by Ragnar Jonasson.
- WHAT DID YOU RECENTLY FINISH READING?
1. Fallen by Karin Slaughter (4/5 stars) REVIEW 08/10
This was one of the series I was finally going to catch up with this year, but this was until I realized I was going to have to deal with a certain character AGAIN and I decided to abort that mission. I still wanted to at least read Fallen though, and especially since I had a physical copy waiting on my shelves… And this sequel is probably the strongest of the series yet.
2. Keep It In The Family by John Marrs (4/5 stars) REVIEW 13/10
It’s no secret that I consider John Marrs to be one of my absolute favorite authors, and I always feel a little giddy inside whenever a new title becomes available. I knew that I simply HAD to read Keep It In The Family even before I knew what the story was going to be about… But once I learned about the house of horrors and serial killer angle, I was even more excited to read it. And I definitely liked what I found! True, it’s not my favorite story of his and there were a few things that niggled me, but there is no doubt that Keep It In The Family is a dark thriller that will chill you to the bone.
3. When Life Gives You Vampires by Gloria Duke (2/5 stars) REVIEW 03/10
Right… Let’s get cracking, shall we? First of all I have to say that When Life Gives You Vampires probably has one of the most original contemporary romance premises I’ve come across this year. With the focus on body positivity and the promise of a romcom with a paranormal twist, there was just something about this debut that made me forget all about my usual allergic reaction to anything vampire related. I’ve been excited to read it, although I confess that I was worried about the lower rating and mixed reviews… Sadly, I do understand why this is the case now. More about why this story didn’t work for me in my review.
- WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’LL READ NEXT?
I still have a lot of October ARCs, and next up is How To Kill Men And Get Away With It by Katy Brent. Afterwards I’m scheduling in a meeting with Eddie Flynn no matter what, and I’m going to read The Accomplice by Steve Cavanagh. Then it’s back to ARCs with The Second Stranger by Martin Griffin… My TBR jar pick The Most Beautiful Girl In Cuba by Chanel Cleeton will have to wait until October; I blame my beginning reading slump.
