WWW Wednesday: 1st May 2019

The WWW Wednesday meme is 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 ReadingSleep

I started reading Sleep by CL Taylor on Monday and am making great progress with it. It’s one of those “group of strangers stuck in an isolated location and one of them is a killer” type stories so I am of course loving it. I swear it’s one of my favourite thriller tropes and to make this one even better it’s set in Scotland 🙂 I’m already about 60% of the way through and it is sooo twisty.

I have to confess I put Night by Night by Jack Jordon on the back burner yet again. Not sure what it is about this book that’s making me keep putting it off. I’m sure if I just sit down and read it I’ll enjoy it but for some reason I keep finding other things to read instead.

It’s all change on the audio front this week too as my hold on Armada by Ernest Cline came in. I made it about a third of the way through the last time I got my hands on it so I’d really like to get it finished before it has to go back again.

Recently Finished

I’ve been taking part in a team reading challenge over on Goodreads for the last three months so as it came to an end today I had one last big push to finish books for tasks and managed to get through quite a few reads

Daisy Jones and The SixSorry I'm Late, I Didn't Want to Come: One Introvert's Year of Saying YesThe Rule of One (The Rule of One, #1)Evidence of the Affair

  • Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid – I got this from NetGalley around the same time as Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo but kept putting it off for some reason. I think it’s just not the type of book I go for but honestly I absolutely loved it and think it may be one of my fave reads of the year.
  • Evidence of the Affair by Taylor Jenkins Reid – When I finished Daisy Jones I went on the hunt for more by the author and came across this little shortie. It’s told in the form of letters between two people who discover their respective spouses are having an affair. It’s an okay read but probably a bit too short for any real depth or emotion.
  • Sorry I’m Late, I Didn’t Want to Come by Jessica Pan – Another random NetGalley pick (what can I say I loved the title). It’s non fic and is all about an introverts experiment to try and live like an extrovert for a year. I liked it. The writing style is warm and funny and the author is incredibly relateable. My only niggle was that I felt it was a little light on the mental health aspects. Pushing yourself out of your comfort zone is one thing, making yourself ill is another.
  • The Rule of One by Ashley Saunders & Leslie Saunders – So you know that challenge I mentioned, I needed a book with a yellow cover. This was actually one of those free Amazon prime books that I’d never gotten around to reading. It was an okay read but for me not particularly memorable. A lot was very similar to numerous other YA dystopians so it was pretty predictable.

Reading Next

Ummm… yep this is pretty much the same list as last week with the addition of Holy Sister. I have a long weekend coming up and Holy Sister in hardback so it seems like a good opportunity to finally read it.

The Bride Test (The Kiss Quotient, #2)I Heart New York (I Heart, #1)Archenemies (Renegades, #2)Holy Sister (Book of the Ancestor, #3)

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 ❤

  1. I’m happy to hear you loved Daisy Jones as well! And I’m dying to read Sleep myself… I had it on preorder, but somehow it’s almost a month after publication day and it still hasn’t shipped. :/ At least I have something to look forward to as it sounds fantastic. And aScotland setting is always a bonus. 😉
