WWW Wednesday: 29th March 2017

The WWW Wednesday meme is currently 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.

WWW Wednesday

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?

Currently ReadingThe Red Road

I’m currently reading The Red Road by Denise Mina which I need to finish by Friday for my RL book club. I’m around halfway through but have to admit I’m not particularly enjoying it. Nothing wrong with it I just don’t really know or care what’s going on. I think it’s supposed to be a mystery/thriller but there are a lot of characters and no particular storyline so far.

I’m thinking I might need to find a new book club as I don’t think there has been a good book yet. I kind of understand why this one was picked, it’s setting is relevant to where I work but it’s the fourth in a series so I don’t know what I’ve missed (and have no plans to read the first three). Anyway, rant over, I’m sticking with it in hopes I’ll finally get to pick a book. Mwah ha ha!! It’s going to be all zombie apocolypse 🙂

On audio I’m listening to Bound by Flames by Jeaniene Frost. This is the third and penultimate book in the series so I’m getting excited about how it will all end.


Recently FinishedSpring at Blueberry Bay

First book finished this week was Spring at Blueberry Bay by Holly Martin which I received from Bookouture via NetGalley. It’s set on the Isles of Scilly and is about a woman, Bella, who finds a homeless man on her doorstep and invites him in. It turns out however that homeless man Isaac is not all he seems and what follows is a sweet and funny romance which made me laugh out loud on more than one occasion.

I had a few niggles about it but overall found it a pretty enjoyable read and the light and fluffy type of book I needed. You can find my review here.

Endings (King Arthurs and Her Knights, #7)My next book finished, Endings by K.M. Shea, was also a light and really enjoyable read. It’s the seventh and final book in her King Arthur and her Knights series and a book I feel like I’ve been waiting on for ages. It’s a retelling of King Arthur and the Knights of the round table but in this story the real Arthur doesn’t want to be king so runs off with a shepherdess leaving Merlin to pull American teen Britt Arthurs from the future to take his place.

Like all K.M. Shea books, it has a strong heroine and a lot of humour. As it is the seventh and final book I won’t say much about what happens but I thought the ending was great.

Paris for One and Other StoriesI also managed to make some progress on my NetGalley backlist this week with Jojo Moyes’ latest book Paris for One and Other Stories. I’m not generally a fan of short stories (they’re too short) but I am a fan of Jojo Moyes so there was no way I could resist this book. There are 9 short stories (and I mean short  – 10-20 pages) in this collection together with two longer stories (around 100 pages) and while I enjoyed all of them I definitely liked the longer stories better. Paris for One was definitely my favourite but Honeymoon in Paris, a prequel to The Girl You Left Behind, was very enjoyable too. Moyes seems to be able to capture very real people and situations perfectly. Hopefully my review will be up in the next couple of days.On the Fence

The next book finished, On The Fence by Kasie West, was a random pick from my kindle mostly to avoid reading The Red Road. I’d spotted a lot of good reviews of this authors other books and it turned out they were correct. It was a very cute and funny and I think I finished the whole thing in around a day.

The final book finished this week was my audio, Twice Tempted by Jeaniene Frost. I’m really enjoying working my way through this series again.


Reading Next

Between library books, my NetGalley shelf and some recent acquisitions my TBR is completely out of control. I’m not positive what’ll be next but will likely be one of the following

Legion (Talon, #4)Last Breath (Detective Erika Foster, #4)He Said/She SaidThe Cornish EscapeWintersongAnd I Darken (The Conqueror's Saga, #1)The Crown's Game (The Crown's Game, #1)Guardian (Proxy, #2)

Have you read any of the books above or have any other book you’d recommend? Leave comments and links below and I’ll respond when I can.

Happy Wednesday Everyone!!!

    • I spotted a giveaway for He Said/She Said on both Goodreads and Twitter recently so you never know you may be lucky 🙂 I am looking forward to it too but I’ve been trying to read in release date order so haven’t gotten to it yet.

  1. On The Fence is probably my most favorite Kasie West book! I just loved that one and I’m so glad you felt the same! 🙂
    I like the cover of Spring at Blueberry Bay and it sounds fun so I’ll go and check it out. Enjoy your other books!

    • I actually hadn’t heard of On the Fence till I spied it on Amazon and recognized the authors name. I did really enjoy it. It’s so sweet and funny. Spring at Blueberry Bay was also really sweet and funny (laugh out loud at times). I hope you enjoy if you read it.

      • It’s a shame when that happens! You’re totally right bookclub books should really be titles that people are interested in, otherwise the whole bookclub idea and talking about books is a bit useless…

  2. I’ll be interested to hear your thoughts on Legion. I’ve had my eye on that series for a while because dragons. What are your thoughts on it? (Presumably positive, if you’ve got the 4th one on your list?)

    • I’ve been really enjoying the Talon series. It’s very definitely YA but like you say dragons 😁 Kagawa really develops the characters too and the ending of Soldier blew me away. I can’t remember the last time I read such an edge of the seat scene.
