WWW Wednesday: 20th February 2019

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 Reading

Working Stiff: Two Years, 262 Bodies, and the Making of a Medical ExaminerBecomingThe Hundred Lies of Lizzie LovettThe Dying Game

If last week was bad with two thrillers on the go, this week seems to have gotten even worse. I’m finding it so difficult to settle on any one book so am currently juggling about five and not making a huge amount of progress with any of them. Work seems to be using all of my concentration and energy so despite some great books I can’t seem to focus on any of them. I have at least managed to step away from the romances, I think I overdosed, but it’s possible I’m going a little too heavy on the thrillers.

Recently Finished

TwistedMy Lovely Wife

Two books finished this week both of which were absolutely brilliant. The first, Twisted by Steve Cavanagh, is all about a thriller writer who’s famous for writing books with a twist that no one sees coming but who keeps his true identity a secret to cover up his past misdeeds. The title pretty much sums up the story as there are quite a few twists and turns along the way making it  an addictive and often shocking read. I’ll leave it there for fear of spoilers.

The second book, My Lovely Wife by Samantha Downing is one the publishers very kindly sent me a NetGalley widget for on Valentines day and I am so happy they did because I absolutely loved it. It’s another thriller but this time about an everyday couple with two children who have a very dark secret (or two). I was hooked from more or less the first page and finished the whole thing in a day. I can usually find something or other that niggled me but on this occasion I’m seriously struggling, even the ending was perfect… hmm.

Reading Next

I have so many books at the moment I’m starting to get a bit panicked about how I’m ever going to manage to read them all. Despite my best intentions I’ve been going a bit nuts on NetGalley (I was stressed) and have also been requesting loads of books from the library (which all seem to have come in at the same time). Given I’m already all over the place I have no clue what I’ll pick up next so instead these are the books I’ve gotten my hands on in the last week. They all look so awesome I’ve no idea where to start.

The CorsetThe Wicked King (The Folk of the Air, #2)Two Can Keep a SecretLady Smoke (Ash Princess Trilogy #2)The Au PairStepsisterOne Summer In ParisEve of Man

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 ❤

    • There’s a fair chance I’m DNFing Working Stiff. I didn’t realise how detailed the descriptions of autopsies would be and I’m finding it a bit much. Yesterday morning’s reading about the uses of pruning shears and soup ladles may have tipped me over the edge 🙂

  1. I hope you enjoy The Wicked King! I thought it was much more engrossing from start to finish than the first book. And I had no idea that Jennifer Donnelly had a new book coming out! I read These Shallow Graves last year and loved it so much. I’ll definitely need to look into this one as well as her other novels.

  2. I’ve been thinking I need to pick up some thrillers soon, as I’ve been reading so much fantasy. I will add Twisted to my TBR, it sounds really awesome. I’m going to have to get my hands on Stepsister – it sounds awesome!

    And of course, all the library books come in at once! It’s always the way.

  3. I’m with you on not being able to focus on one book right now. I have no desire to read the two I just started and will probably pick up another one today. AND, I need to decide on a better audio book (the one I started yesterday is meh). I hope you get some reading mojo back. Becoming is fantastic. I really hope you enjoy it! Also…I just saw a Steve Cavanagh book was Read Now on Netgalley…after seeing you enjoyed one of his books, I grabbed it!

  4. Twisted sounds so good! I recently received an ARC of Thirteen and I can’t wait to discover this author. I’ve read Two Can Keep A Secret of your next reads and really enjoyed it… I hope you will enjoy your books this week and happy reading!
