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?
I am only reading one book at the moment and that is Beauty Queens which I am really enjoying and so far I am really liking the characters. It's sort of like Lord of the Flies only way more enjoyable.
Recently I finished Lord of The Flies which I really didn't enjoy at all but I had to read it for English homework.
Planning to Read Next:
Next I am planning on reading The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic which I am very excited to read and will hopefully get through quickly. I read and loved I've Got Your Number last year so I am sure I will enjoy this one.
I haven't actually started it yet but After Alice is next on my review pile and will be my definite next read for bus journeys. My current e-book read is The Hypnotic City. I am only a couple of chapters in but so far I really like Philomena's perspective although it does lack the threat that made The Heartless City so great.
The first book I read this week was You and Me, Always by Jill Mansell which was such a lovely, heart-warming read. I loved the characters and I was kept reading by the engaging story. I then read In the Month of the Midnight Sun by Cecilia Ekback. There is an excellent sense of quiet menace present in this, although not a lot is happening (apart from the triple murder at the beginning) its a very tense read and definitely gripping. Of the three perspectives I definitely prefer Magnus. He offered a rational and reassuring viewpoint amidst the otherworldly eeriness.
Planning to Read Next:
Next up I will be reading two very appropriate for Halloween books (I am already in the Halloween spirit). The Unseeing has a creepy cover and a promise of murders and mystery within. I am definitely very excited for this one. Slightly more ambiguous is Fell, the plot of which I am a bit unsure of but the cover is definitely Halloween-y in my opinion so it works. Finally, as a break from all the murder and creepiness I am planning to read Don't Let Go by Jaci Burton which looks like a light and fun read.
