I’ve seen a lot of bookish memes and list ideas here on the book-blogging circuit, and I wish I could do all of them! One of my favorites has been a trend of bloggers posting their current reads on Wednesdays.
This week I’ll be taking inspiration from Taking On a World of Words, and trying out their “WWW Wednesday!”
The Three Ws are:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
What I’m currently reading:
The Last Time I Lied by Riley Sager
I’ve had such a fun Riley Sager Summer with Lock Every Door releasing this month. I caught the itch. I’ve read the first two of Sager’s novels before, Final Girls and now The Last Time I Lied, but I’m so excited to read them again and review them this time. And I’m in such a thriller mood right now, so this is hitting all the right notes. I’ll be reviewing this soon and definitely recommend for anyone looking for a creepy read.
Midnight in Chernobyl by Adam Higgenbotham
I just started this but I’m really enjoying and looking forward to the rest. I loved the Chernobyl mini-series on HBO, which I finished recently, and even though it was hard to watch at times, I found it moving and very well-done. I saw that it was somewhat informed by this Non-Fiction title and since I enjoy some NF now and then, I thought I’d dive in a little further. I’ll report back when I’m finished! This has some great reviews.
Spinning by Tilly Walden
I bumped into this title without knowing much about it at my library but I’m so glad I did. I’m not very far into this story, but so far it is sweet and a little bit sad and so relatable. This Graphic Novel is a coming of age story about the author’s life growing up through all sorts of life’s questions and I’m really enjoying it so far.
What I’ve recently finished:
Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling
I LOVED rereading this series. I had such a fun, emotional, fulfilling time and these stories totally held up over the years. I can’t believe its over honestly, reading it again after all that time made all the thrills feel new and the nuances feel extra-special.
Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake
I finally finished it! Haha I don’t know why but this was the book that was always on my TBR and never read. I got it done though! I read this for Reading Rush this year and I enjoyed it a lot. The intrigue, the drama, the twists, I’ll definitely be checking out the rest of this YA fantasy series.
Mother Knows Best by Kira Peikoff
This was good, and I expected it to just be okay. Super happy. This science thriller came to me by way of BookishFirst and I enjoyed it a lot. It was fast-paced, complex, thrilling and multi-layered, all the things I love in a good thriller. This one hits shelves in September and I’ll be reviewing it fully before then, so keep an eye out!
What I think I’ll read next:
I’m in the mood for something thrilling!!
The Swallows by Lisa Lutz
I’ve been meaning and wanting to get to this book for a long time and I’m only now accomplishing it. This is an ARC from Netgalley and its release is quickly approaching! I’ve got until just before August 13th to read and review this little gem and I’m really excited. The Swallows is an adult thriller and I’ve been feeling that call to read something thrilling!
The Killing Gene by E.M. Davey
I’m genuinely looking forward to this. This came to me by way of a review request through my site and when I looked into it- I was very pleased to see that it has some really good reviews. Part science, part action-adventure, part thriller, I’m hoping that The Killing Gene can satisfy my thriller-itch this week. Look for more about this book in a review next week!
The Chain by Adrian McKinty
This looks really crazy and really interesting. I’ve been seeing it everywhere lately! The Chain is essentially about a “chain” of people committing kidnap and blackmail in this twisted cycle and of course all the insanity that comes with, during, and after that. I got to know this author, a Belfast native, when I lived in Belfast and I’ve really enjoyed his other books. I have high expectations! Fingers crossed.
