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.
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 took a major detour from my reading plan last week (more below) but I’m back on track and currently reading Yesterday by Felicia Yap. This popped up on NetGalley and as soon as I heard it was about memory I couldn’t resist requesting. I’m not sure why but I find stories about amnesia and anything to do with memories absolutely fascinating.
At the moment I’m around 20% through and have to admit I’m not entirely convinced about the combination of murder mystery and alternate reality.
So it’s safe to say I went a little bit off track with my reading last week and decided to just read whatever I felt like (it was bound to happen eventually). I seem to have been reading a lot of thrillers and YA fantasy so I needed something completely different. It was also way too tempting having Artemis by Andy Weir sitting on my NetGalley shelf.
I haven’t read The Martian but it’s definitely one of my favourite films. I get the feeling that Artemis is another book that would work incredibly well as a film. The story is set in a city on the moon (Artemis) and follows smuggler Jazz as she attempts to pull off a major heist. It’s a very clever book with a main character who may not be wholly likeable (she’s rude, morally grey and alienates everyone) but is brilliant fun to read. It’s too early for a review but I’d definitely recommend.
After Artemis, which did require a bit of concentration (it’s kind of techie), I felt the need for a bit of romance and a story that would let me more or less just turn my brain off. I’ve been participating in a group challenge on GoodReads and a few of my teammates recommended Ilona Andrews so as I already had Burn for Me it seemed like a good idea. Unfortunately it was possibly too good an idea as I blasted my way through both it and the second book in the trilogy White Hot. I do have a tendency to get addicted to paranormal romances.
I’ve really got to get back on track with my NetGalley reads and I have a few more book signings coming up so next up will probably be The Scandal by Fredrik Backman or Maresi by Maria Turtschaninoff. I’ve also been very tempted to finally pick up Now I Rise by Kiersten White. I bought it a few weeks ago but haven’t had a chance to read it yet and I really, really want to.
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 Wednesday Everyone!!!
