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 Demonglass by Rachel Hawkins, both because I wanted a proper Halloween themed read and because I want to try and finish as many started series as I can. I’m also starting Before Her Eyes by Jack Jordan, a book I’ve been really looking forward to since I highly enjoyed this other books.
- WHAT DID YOU RECENTLY FINISH READING?
1. One Dark Night by Tom Bale (4/5 stars) REVIEW 23/10
There is no doubt that One Dark Night is a superfast, entertaining and action-packed thriller, with a few scenes so intense and graphic it almost borders on the horror genre. The situation of the family is horrific, and the story definitely has a Hollywood action movie feel about it. I had my doubts about the credibility of it all, but overall I still enjoyed the ride. And what a rollercoaster it was!
2. Rebel by Amy Tintera (4/5 stars) REVIEW 19/10
I’m happy to say Reboot was a success for me. First of all, a big round of applause for not having a love triangle! There are romance scenes of course, but somehow they didn’t bother me as much as I liked them together. The writing style is spot on for me and I’m definitely looking forward to read more of Amy Tintera‘s books after this. The writing draws you right in, and the dystopian world Reboot is set in is quite interesting. Not all that original perhaps with the virus and all, but entertaining enough anyway.
3. The Darkness by Ragnar Jonasson (3,5/5 stars) REVIEW
The Darkness both has an interesting setting and a strong main character to build a story around. I really appreciated to finally have an older main character, and Hulda is without doubt a very interesting one to follow. The mystery around her past and the cold case she is investigating will keep you on your toes, making the slower parts less noticeable. And what a shocking ending! I definitely didn’t see some of the reveals coming. Talk about ending things with a blast… I will be looking forward to book two.
4. They Both Die At The End by Adam Silvera (4/5 stars) REVIEW 19/10
There is just something about Adam Silvera’s writing style that draws you right in and keeps you invested until the very end. I was expecting another contemporary romance read, so I was more than pleasantly surprised by the science fiction like twist of this story. Of course I knew there were going to be sad moments because as the title suggests, both main characters will die before the story is over. But I really liked the idea behind the Dead Cast, Last Friend App and how they spend their last day together. Sci-fi with a romantic lgbt twist, and a whole lot of carpe diem before they kick the bucket.
5. Snowy Nights At The Lonely Hearts Hotel by Karen King (3,5/5 stars) REVIEW 13/10
While I have to confess I’m not really a Christmas person (especially since I’ve been living in Argentina; having to celebrate with 30+°C temperatures just doesn’t do it for me xD), I do like reading a Christmas-themed story or two every year. There was just something about this one that caught my eye… It’s without doubt an entertaining read and I think contemporary romance fans will love this one. It was a little too cliche and all for me, but that is probably just me and not the book.
- WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’LL READ NEXT?
I’m trying to make a dent in my enormous pile of ARCs and need something different, so I might pick up Dear Mr Pop Star by Derek & Dave Philpott next. I also need to read Before She Falls by Dylan Young some time soon… And I want to read the sequel Rebel by Amy Tintera while my memory is still fresh, and it also means crossing off another series on my unfinished list. My current TBR jar pick is still An Officer And A Spy by Robert Harris… I’ve become really good at posponing that one. xD
