WWW Wednesday! June 20, 2018

Hi all! I’m at the beach and on blog hiatus (sorta?) until July, but I still wanted to participate in WWW Wednesday, so I can keep track of what I’ve been reading throughout the month! I hope everyone is having a great week!

WWW Wednesdays is a weekly meme hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. Here’s how it works: all you need to do is answer the following three questions and link back to her, or you can put your answers in the comments on her blog!

The three WWW questions are:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

Currently, I’m reading:

I’m listening to The Cuckoo’s Calling (Cormoran Strike #1) by Robert Galbraith on audible when I get a chance, which has not been as much as I would like now that I’m at the beach but so far, it’s really good! J.K. Rowling under her pen name of Galbraith has written an excellent detective novel and Strike is such an intriguing character. Last weekend I binged the 1st season of C.B. Strike (thank you, Annie, for the recommendation!), the show that the book series is based on, and it was fanastic. I’m wondering how the book will compare to its screen version!

All Your Perfects by Colleen Hoover has been one of my most anticipated reads since I heard that it was being published! I just started it today, and I have a feeling that I will have it finished very quickly…if I can find time to read today, agh, it has been frustratingly hard, lol! But I have no words for how amazing this book is so far…CoHo has outdone herself.

Since last week I finished reading:

Somebody’s Daughter by David Bell was my 1st book by Bell and I don’t know, I guess I just expected more after all I’ve heard about his books. It was good and I read it in a day, but it was predictable and I figured out what had happened a few chapters in so it was a just a 3 star read for me. I’m going to read his other books to see what I think of those since they have such high reviews.

The rest of the books that I read last week were all 4 star reads so while I didn’t have any 5 Star books last week, I was happy to have some really great reads!

I was on a roll with several 4 star psychological thrillers and suspense novels that kept me glued to the pages. Every one of the following were page-turners that I read in one sitting and highly recommend!

Her Pretty Face by Robyn Harding is just wild! I couldn’t stop reading this once I picked it up!

Believe Me by JP Delaney is wow! I loved this dark, twisted book…it is probably my favorite of the week. It’s more a 4.5-star read, maybe.

I think Megan Abbott is brilliant at writing about the darker side of female relationships, especially teenagers. She has done it again with Give Me Your Hand and I love the thrilling, atmospheric vibe throughout the book.

The Subway Girls by Susie Orman Schnall is a wonderful historical fiction novel that was quite a departure from all the suspense I’d been reading! It took place in the 1940s and present with alternating perspectives, and I loved the history of The Miss Subways but really loved the entire premise. Fascinating story.

I See Life Through Rose Colored Glasses by Lisa Scottoline and Francesca Serritella is such a humorous read by the mother-daughter duo about everyday life! I read this my 1st day on vacation, and it is seriously the perfect vacation read or even staycation read. I love Scottoline anyway, but she is honest and funny, and so is her daughter. I laughed and cried with this one!

Next, I plan on reading:

Pieces of Her by Karin Slaughter is my most anticipated read of 2018 since it’s well, by Karin Slaughter. Anything she writes is going to be the book I want to read most of all, and I’ve been holding my ARC of the book for 3 months now just to be able to enjoy it at the beach…it’s been soooo hard! A #20booksofsummer challenge read…will be book 6!

Dreams of Falling by Karen White is another most anticipated read of the year, and I wanted to make sure to save it for the beach so I could savor it while relaxing! Another #20booksofsummer challenge read…book number 7!

Every Time You Go Away by Beth Harbison will be my 1st book by Harbison, but I’ve heard good things about it…and to have tissues handy!! Sounds like a good vacation read!

Well, that’s what my reading currently looks like! How about yours? What good books are you reading this week or have you recently finished? What wonderful books do you plan on reading next? I’d love to hear what you’re reading so I can have more ideas for my ever-growing TBR pile! 🙂

    1. I love Karen White’s books, so I’m very excited to read this one! The slower pace will be perfect for sitting on the beach the next 10 days…though I’m sure I’ll be done with it before then!! Glad you enjoyed it!
