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 yet another ARC: The Little Italian Hotel by Phaedra Patrick. I’ve enjoyed her books before and I do love an Italian setting, so I have high hopes for it. I will also be starting The Doctor by Annie Payne; I’m a bit worried about this one because it’s been receiving mixed reviews, but we’ll see how things go I guess.


1. The Final Party by A.A. Chaudhuri (2/5 stars) REVIEW
I’ve been meaning to try this author for quite some time now, and I couldn’t resist The Final Party after reading the blurb. I have great memories from visiting Sorrento when I was younger, and I was looking forward to revisit this magical Italian destination in this story. I was also intrigued by the premise, with one of the characters ending up dead and the mystery having that locked-room vibe. I fully expected to have an excellent time with this book… But sadly, it wasn’t ment to be. More about the why in my review.

2. A Darker Place by Rachel Amphlett (4/5 stars) REVIEW 29/05
After a recent bout of bad luck with my ARCs, I decided to take a quick break and turn to one of my favorite detective series instead. I loved the first nine Detective Kay Hunter books, but somehow not having the deadline of an ARC the previous sequels had made me fall behind… I hope to remedy this and catch up again this year. A Darker Place is book number ten, and without doubt another satisfying detective thriller.

3. Death’s Door by April White (4/5 stars) REVIEW 29/05
I was browsing books to read for the kindle challenge, and I couldn’t resist adding Death’s Door after reading the blurb. This novella had me as soon as it mentioned time travel and Edgar Allan Poe; while sci-fi isn’t my usual genre, I tend to enjoy books with a historical angle and time travel element. I’m so glad I stumbled across this novella now, because I ended up having a fantastic time with this kindle freebie!

4. The Revenge List by Hannah Mary McKinnon (4,5/5 stars) BLOG TOUR REVIEW 22/05
Look out for my thoughts during my stop of the blog tour on May 22nd!!

5. The Hook by Victoria Helen Stone (2,5/5 stars) REVIEW 21/05
I admit I do love a good revenge thriller, so it’s easy to understand why the premise of The Hook immediately called to me. I was intrigued by the sound of the boxing class bringing the women together, and how their instructor helps getting them revenge. I fully expected to have a fantastic time with this story… But I guess it just wasn’t ment to be in the end, and I ended up having mixed thoughts instead. More about what did and didn’t work in my review.

6. The Confession by Jessie Burton (2/5 stars) REVIEW 25/05
I can’t believe I’ve finally actually picked up my TBR jar pick after months of meaning to do so! Sadly, it wasn’t exactly a positive experience though. I already feared I wasn’t going to be in the mood for it, because slower stories haven’t really worked for me lately… But this wasn’t the main thing that didn’t work for me. Cringeworthy writing (‘her cunt a warm coal’; wtf?!), too pretentious, weak character development and overall lack of interest made it very hard to keep reading. Oh well, it least I can finally continue to the next TBR jar pick now.


I have two more early June ARCs due before I can take a quick break: A Killer’s Game by Isabella Maldonado and Cassandra In Reverse by Holly Smale. I have high hopes for both, so fingers crossed they will be good… Afterwards, it’s finally time to pick up Finlay Donovan Jumps The Gun by Elle Cosimano! After loving the first two, I fully expect to love this one as well. My newest TBR jar pick Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens will most likely have to wait until June though.
