WWW WEDNESDAYS is a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On A World Of Words and is all about answering the three questions below.


I’m currently reading the ARC Life And Otter Miracles by Hazel Prior. I loved one of her penguin books, and I’ve been meaning to read more of her work ever since… It was cover love at first sight and I really liked the sound of the blurb. I will also be starting The Birthday Reunion by Claire Seeber; I really do hope that this one will work, because I hadn’t realized I read one of her books before and that one was a total miss. xD


1. Eight Work Late by Larkin Shaw (3/5 stars) REVIEW 09/04
There was just something about the blurb of Eight Work Late that caught my attention immediately. This story is marketed as an office murder mystery, mixing corporate life with murder and (dark) comedy. It’s not something I come across every day, and since I do love a good murder mystery with a locked room vibe, I simply couldn’t resist adding Eight Work Late to my shelves. And while I’m not sure my expectations were actually fully met, I can’t deny it was still a solid read.

2. The Last Heir To Blackwood Library by Hester Fox (3,5/5 stars) REVIEW 31/03
I love a good gothic historical story, and add a bookish element and there is no way I’m going to be able to resist reading it. This is probably why it is easy to understand how The Last Heir To Blackwood Library ended up on my shelves, because this newest story by Hester Fox offers both. I’ve enjoyed her work in the past, and there was just something about the blurb, the Blackwood abbey and its secrets that made this story sound irresistible. And while there were things that didn’t work as well as expected for me, as a whole it turned out to be an interesting enough story.

3. The Coach Trip by Izzy Bromley (2,5/5 stars) REVIEW 04/05
I love stories with a focus on older main characters as well as stories with a travel element, so I truly thought that I had hit the jackpot with The Coach Trip. The blurb sounded like so much fun with the two friends going on a coach trip with a bunch of septuagenarians, and I’ve been looking forward to read it. Sadly, I didn’t exactly have the reading experience I was hoping for, and I ended up struggling considerably with this story. More about the why in my review.

4. The Sittaford Mystery by Agatha Christie (3,5/5 stars) REVIEW 04/04
I can always count on Agatha Christie to help me complete the Reading Through The Centuries challenge, and this time I decided to turn to a stand-alone mystery I’ve been meaning to read. As much as I do love my time with Hercule Poirot, I was curious to see what I would make of The Sittaford Mystery. Especially with the blurb mentioning a seance and a winter countryside setting… And as a whole, this turned out to be a solid murder mystery.

5. Dregs by Jørn Lier Horst (3/5 stars) REVIEW 08/04
I’ve been meaning to read one of his books ever since I loved the first book of the Alexander Blix and Emma Ramm series he wrote together with Thomas Enger… Dregs is actually the sixth William Wisting book, but somehow the first five books have never been translated into English (I really don’t understand why publishers do that to be honest). Anyhow, I did feel that something was missing by not having read the previous books, and I struggled to connect to the main character as a consequence. I also thought the pace was quite slow and the story dragged in points; something I was very surprised by as the series he writes with Thomas Enger is super engaging.


I need to catch up ASAP with my April and early May ARCs before we go on vacation in April… First up is probably either Fire With Fire by Candice Fox or Something Bad Wrong by Eryk Pruitt. I also need to start listening to the audio ARC of The Bone Shard War by Andrea Stewart, because it’s almost 20! hours long and the deadline is coming up. I’m picking up my TBR jar pick The Confession by Jessie Burton first though as soon as I finish my current reads.
