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 ARC Angels Of The Resistance by Noele Salazar, which is due soon. I don’t think I’ve visited this Dutch city close to where I was born in stories yet, and I’ve been looking forward to see how I will react to the story. I’m also starting the newest Josie Quinn sequel The Innocent Wife by Lisa Regan. I love this series so I fully expect it to be yet another success!
- WHAT DID YOU RECENTLY FINISH READING?
1. Demon by Matt Wesolowski (4,5/5 stars) REVIEW 27/11
I’ve been an instant fan of the Six Stories books ever since I read the first book back in 2019, and this is a series that just keeps delivering one fantastic book after the other. Demon is already book number six of a series focusing on revisiting old crime cases in podcast style. And while not my absolute favorite, there is no doubt that it still delivered! There is just something about Matt Wesolowski‘s writing style that draws you straight in, and it’s always great to see Scott King tackling yet another intriguing case.
2. Lord Edgware Dies by Agatha Christie (3,5/5 stars) REVIEW
I’m slowly making my way through the Hercule Poirot books, although I confess that I don’t always read them in order. Lord Edgware Dies is one of the titles that slipped between the cracks, and I decided to finally read it partly to complete the Reading Through The Centuries challenge. And while not as well known, I do think this is one of the stronger Hercule Poirot stories out there. I never guessed the truth behind it all, and there are plenty of suspects, twists and secrets to keep you busy.
3. The Cutting Season by M.W. Craven (4,5/5 stars) REVIEW 03/12
It’s no secret that this series is on my list of absolute favorites, and I’ve been saving this novella for a rainy day. I was hoping this would be closer to the publish date of the next book, but I was craving a dose of Tilly and Poe and ended up giving in early. Whoops? Anyhow, as always I loved my time with this fantastic character duo, and The Cutting Season turned out to be another great success.
4. Remarkably Bright Creatures by Shelby Van Pelt (4,5/5 stars) REVIEW 27/11
Sometimes you come across a book and your inner radar starts screaming that you simply HAVE to read it. Remarkably Bright Creatures was one of those books for me. I have a weak spot for books with older main characters, and on top of that having one of the main characters being a real live octopus?! Of course I wasn’t going to be able to resist that. And I’m glad I finally read it, because it turned out to be an absolute gem.
5. So Long, Chester Wheeler by Catherine Ryan Hyde (4,5/5 stars) REVIEW 25/11
I’ve been meaning to try this author for a while now, and there was just something about the blurb of So Long, Chester Wheeler that I couldn’t resist. I’m glad I didn’t, because I ended up having such a great time reading this story. There is just something about her writing style that makes it really easy to keep turning those pages, and the character development is spot on. I definitely want to read more of her work now!
- WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’LL READ NEXT?
I need to get the final early December ARC out of the way before I can go back to my own titles for a bit: Last Circle Of Love by Lorna Landvik. The blurb sounds great and I love the cover, so fingers crossed. Then it’s (finally) time for my second Spanish read of the year: the Spanish translation of The Gunslinger (El Pistolero) by Stephen King. I’ve been meaning to start this series for YEARS, and I thought having a copy of the Spanish editions would be the perfect excuse to finally do so. Afterwards, it’s probably Deadly Summer by Denise Grover Swank because it sounds like a fun read. I also hope to read my TBR jar pick Meet Me In Monaco by Hazel Gaynor and Heather Webb before the end of the month… Although it might be the first days of December before I get to it.
