Wednesday Catch-Up 8th June 2016

Every Wednesday we are linking up with WWW Wednesday. WWW Wednesday is hosted at Taking on a World of Words and asks 3 questions: What are you currently reading?, What did you recently finish reading? What do you think you'll read next?

Clare:

Currently Reading:
Omens (The Cainsville Trilogy)Framley Parsonage (Chronicles of Barsetshire #4)
I am currently about halfway through Omens by Kelley Armstrong and not sure how I feel about it so far. I love Kelley Armstrong's books (especially her Otherworld series') and I am not as immediately engaged with this one but I do like the plot and I think by the end I will probably be enthusiastic about continuing the series. I am just starting my Classic read for June (a little late because I was revising for my exam) which is Framley Parsonage by Anthony Trollope. I really enjoyed the previous book Doctor Thorne and this one doesn't appeal to me as much as that one but it still sounds like a good read.

Recently Finished:
Only Beloved (The Survivors' Club, #7)Marrying Winterborne (The Ravenels, #2)The Invisible Library (The Invisible Library #1)
The first book I read this week was Only Beloved by Mary Balogh which was the last book in the Survivors series a series I have greatly enjoyed. This was emotional and romantic with some comedy thrown in. The characters were great and I thought it was a good ending to the series. Marrying Winterborne was even better than I had expected and nearly threw me into a reading slump because all I wanted to do was re-read it! I am very excited for the next book in the series! I found The Invisible Library a little disappointing - although whether that was because I was distracted by Marrying Winterborne is possible! It was enjoyable but I found there was so much explanation for the world that kind of detracted from the story.

Planning to Read Next:
At First SightThe Fixer (The Fixer, #1)Struck (Struck, #1)
Next I am planning to read At First Sight and The Fixer by Jennifer Lynn Barnes, I really enjoyed Every Other Day by her and these appeal to me even more so I am excited to read them. I will then be reading Struck by Joss Stirling which I know will be a fast and fun read!


You can also find us on Goodreads (Ann and Clare) to keep up with what we are reading

  2. I think a lot of people found The Invisible Library disappointing. I liked it, but thought it was a bit confused. The second book in the series is a bit better. The plot is a lot stronger and there's less info dumping about the library etc. I think this could be a series which gets better with each book.

    1. That was exactly my problem! Will definitely be reading the second book since I have it, so I am glad to hear the series improves!

  3. Oh, it's funny because looking at the covers, The Invisible Library really caught my eye! Interesting how a lot of pretty covers contain flimsy stories. What's that saying again? Never judge a book... ;)
    Happy Reading and thanks again for stopping by :)

    1. The covers are even prettier in real life! So at least they will look good on my shelves!

  6. I didn't love The Invisible Library either, could definitely tell it was the first in a series with others lined up!

    1. Yeah, I am probably going to continue the series but it was only an OK start to a series that will hopefully improve!
