The WWW Wednesday meme is hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words and is a great way to do a weekly update on what you’ve been reading and what you have planned.
To take part all you have to do is answer the following three questions:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
I’m having some trouble deciding on my next read so have been rereading bits of my fave books until I do.
On audio I’m still making steady progress on Before the Devil Breaks You by Libba Bray, Think I listened to a good three or four hours. I do still have quite a way to go though and with the fourth book sitting waiting on my kindle I do feel like I need to get a shift on.
Last week was my first week back at work after the Christmas break and wow, that was a shock to the system. I did however manage to finish three books, all from my backlist, the first of which was Shades of Wicked by Jeaniene Frost. I do love Jeaniene Frost’s books and her writing but I am a little on the fence about this new spinoff series. Main character Ian has never really been my favourite in the other books and it really took a while for me to warm up to him in this. It does have an absolutely stunning ending and I’m totally going to read on but I miss my Vlad.
Despite saying last week that I would have zero concentration for books and would probably be best sticking to romcoms I did for some reason decide to read This is How You Lose the Time War by Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone. It’s been sitting on my TBR for a while and I was very much looking forward to it but it was definitely not the right time to read it. It is a wonderful book, original, unique and if you can give it your full attention incredibly engaging and beautiful. But, as someone who was tired, stressed and whose brain was all over the place this was a difficult read. The language is flowery and if I’m honest difficult for me (I had to look up a few words) and the concept not the easiest to get your head around particularly as there’s little explanation and you have to just pick it up as you go. I did like it but I think I’m going to have to read it again at some point in the future when I can give it the attention it deserves.
As you can probably imagine after that book I needed something much, much easier so went for The Bromance Bookclub by Lyssa Kay Adams and boy this book was everything I needed. Funny, cute and very, very sweet. I loved the whole idea of this group of successful men reading regency romances to sort out the problems with the women in their lives.
I made the mistake of going to a bookstore on Saturday where I noticed that quite a few of the books sitting on my NetGalley shelf are actually out in the world already. I feel like I need to maybe make some progress with my ARCs over the next couple of weeks. I’m therefore hoping to pick up the following:-
Have you read any of the books on my list this week? Any others you’d recommend? As always please feel free to leave comments and links below.
Happy Reading ❤
