WWW Wednesday: 9th August 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 ReadingYesterday: The thriller of the summer

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.


Recently Finished

Artemis

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.

Burn for Me (Hidden Legacy, #1)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.


Reading Next

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.

Maresi (The Red Abbey Chronicles, #1)The ScandalNow I Rise (The Conqueror's Saga, #2)

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!!!

  1. You’ve got me really tempted to read Artemis just to see if I like it more than The Martian (I think I might have said this to you last week, I thought the movie was far better than the book).

    I saw Yesterday on Netgalley but I wasn’t entirely convinced by the premise. I’ll be interested to see what you think in the end.

  2. There’s been a lot of noise about Yesterday but I’ve read a few mixed reviews from bloggers I rate so I’m wondering if it’s one of those books that won’t live up to the hype. I like that you’re getting up to date with ARCs – me too, I’m doing the ARC August challenge which is helping me focus.

  3. You have me seriously tempted with Yesterday now! I love any story with a memory theme involved as well. I can’t wait for Artemis to be published and The Scandal is on my list of anticipated releases as well… And Now I Rise is GOOD. I hope you will enjoy your books this week and happy reading! Here’s my WWW.
