WWW Wednesday: 19th December 2018

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 Christmas Sisters: The perfect feel-good and romantic read to curl up with this winter!

Holidays are coming so I’m getting in the festive spirit by readingย The Christmas Sisters by Sarah Morgan (and listening to Aussie Christmas Carols – why am I only discovering these now?). I do love Sarah Morgan’s writing, it’s just so easy to sink into, so I’ve only been reading since Monday and am already well past the halfway mark. It is a little more family drama than romance (I love Morgan’s romances) so it’s probably not going to be my favourite book from her but it’s an enjoyable story.


Recently Finished

The Devil Aspect

Only one book finished this week butย The Devil Aspect by Craig Russell was a good one. It’s a horror story set in Czechoslovakia in 1935 and is told from two point of views. The first is a young psychiatrist Viktor who has a new job treating six of the country’s most feared serial killers. The second is a detective based in Prague who is on the hunt for a new serial killer known as Leather Apron. I found it quite a slow read (hence only one book finished) as there’s a lot of detail and history (something I always struggle with) but I did like the mystery and investigation. It’s not out till March so I do unfortunately need to hold off on a review but if you’re a fan of Silence of the Lamb type stories I think you’ll enjoy.


Reading Next

Only three days of work left and then the reading binge can begin ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m not entirely sure what I’ll be reading but I’d like to still keep clearing my Netgalley shelf, read some of my physical books (that are too heavy to carry around), and catch up on the odd guilty pleasure book so probably some of the following.

VerityDaisy Jones and The SixA Place in the SunSixth Grave on the Edge (Charley Davidson, #6)Kingdom of Ash (Throne of Glass, #7)Nevernight (The Nevernight Chronicle, #1)

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. I am having issues with my phone at the moment (the battery dies if I use wifi/data for more than 10 mins) so I may be a little slow responding but I’ll get there.

Happy Reading and (if you celebrate it) a Merry Christmas โค

    • There’s a pretty strong possibility I’m going to be reading A Christmas Carol at some point too. It’s been a couple of years since I first read it and it’s a nice quick read. I keep saying I need to read more classics but never seem to get around to it.

      I have so many books waiting to be read it’s frightening, think I have a whole bookcase of them (albeit a small one) but I like to break from the should really be reading and pick up what I fancy.

    • I really like Sarah Morgan’s books. They used to be really heavy on the romance but they seem to be shifting more into the family relationships area. I am liking this one as it’s set in the Scottish Highlands.

      Hopefully Verity and Daisy will live up to expectations for both of us ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. What do you think of the one sister (the stay-at-home mom one)? She drove me nuts in the book. Something about her just rubbed me the wrong way. I loved everyone else, and overall enjoyed the book.
    What a line up of great books!!! I loved Verity and Daisy. I need to read A Place in the Sun. Enjoy! And Merry Christmas!

    • I didn’t mind her at the start and could totally understand her feelings but as the story’s going on she is getting a little on my nerves. She just never seems to be happy (even when she’s getting everything she wants). It’s funny, my views of all of them seem to be shifting.

      Really looking forward to all of the books I have lined up. There’s possibly too much choice.

      Thanks and to you too.

  2. I’m excited to read Verity by Colleen Hoover!! She’s one of my favorite authors so I’m really looking forward to it!! I haven’t read a single Sarah J. Maas book (can you believe it?) but I’d like to try one sooooon. Also, I don’t remember everything about Nevernight but that one is bloody! Hahaha. Anyway, happy reading! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I can be hit or miss with Hoover but I’ve heard loads of great things about Verity.

      I’ve only read that one series by Maas as I generally try to avoid reading more than one series by the same author at the same time. I loved the first couple of books but the more recent ones haven’t been as great.

      I keep picking up Nevernight, reading the first couple of pages then going off and reading something else. But, I managed to get my hands on the audio so hopefully that’ll help me get into it. I have no problem with bloody books ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I hope you can squeeze it in. Sarah Morgan’s books are always good and it’s just a nice relaxing read, perfect for the season.

      Really looking forward to Daisy Jones. I loved The Seven Husbands so very excited to read something else by that author.

  3. Basically I want to read most of the books on your next list as well, although I still have to get copies (or wait until it’s out) for at least half. xD Have a wonderful week and happy reading!
