Wednesday Catch-Up 2nd November 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? 

Ann:

Currently Reading:
The Lovely and the Lost
I am currently reading The Lovely And The Lost which I have been reading for a while because I have been very distracted playing the x-box with my Mum and Clare but I will finishing soon!

Recently Finished:

I have not recently finished reading anything and I don't really have a reason other than I have been distracted with playing on the x-box!


Planning to Read Next:
The Female of the SpeciesThe Wondrous and the WickedBook of Lies
I will definitely be reading The Female Of The Species because I read half the blurb and loved it and am just so excited to read it! I then want to read The Wondrous And The Wicked so that I will have read the whole series! I may not get around to reading it but if I do then I will read Book of Lies which I have had for a while and still not read, so really need to read soon!

Clare:

Currently Reading:
The Female of the Species
I am just about to start reading The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis. I have heard nothing but amazing things about this one and I am so excited to read it! If it as good as I suspect it will be it may wind up being one of my favourite books of the year - although I am trying hard not to hype it up too much! 

Recently Finished:
With MaliceA Most Novel Revenge (Amory Ames Mystery #3)
The first book I read this week, With Malice, was a fun and engrossing read. I flew through it fairly quickly and enjoyed the format of the novel. I thought the depiction of how Jill was viewed - and how quick people were to judge her - was scarily accurate and really made me think about real life cases like this. The ending was left pretty open so although I had worked out most of it, it's open to interpretation what really happened. I then read A Most Novel Revenge by Ashley Weaver which is the 3rd book in the Amory Ames mystery series. I really enjoyed this one - more so than the 2nd book. I liked the relationship between Milo and Amory in this novel and I enjoyed the mystery - I did guess correctly who did it but I hadn't figured out why so it was still a lot of fun to read!

Planning to Read Next:
A Study in Scarlet Women (Lady Sherlock, #1)Stalking Jack the Ripper (Stalking Jack the Ripper, #1)Blackhearts (Blackhearts, #1)
I feel like reading Historical mysteries at the moment so next up I plan to read A Study in Scarlet Women by Sherry Thomas which looks like it could be a great story although I haven't yet seen any reviews for it - and then Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco which should be arriving in the next couple of days. This is one I am really excited for as I have heard great things. And then maybe I will pick up Blackhearts although I am less certain of this one - I do have some review books I'd like to get to as well. 

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

Sometimes we need a little break from reading to enjoy other hobbies. It is alright to have other interests :)

Book of Lies looks really interesting especially since I liked her Slate series. Those were fun! And I do need to get caught up on the Ashley Weaver books since I loved Brightwell but haven't read the next two yet. With Malice I've been seeing good things about...

Well two of those have really caught my eye A Most Novel Revenge and Stalking Jack the Ripper = but great choices all round - thank you for sharing.

Clare Stone said...

A Most Novel Revenge was a really fun read - I love that series, the mysteries and characters are just so great! And I am super excited for Stalking Jack the Ripper!

So many great books here, most are on my TBR! I've heard only amazing things about Female of the Species as well! Hope you enjoy your reads :)
Happy Reading :)

Yvonne said...

Your books look so good. Enjoy them!

Sam said...

I love that you both share books! I wish I had a friend to swap paperbacks with, haha. Happy reading and thanks for participating in WWW Wednesday!

Clare Stone said...

I completely agree! Forcing yourself to read when you really want to do something else is not a good idea!

Clare Stone said...

I only read the first in the Slated series although I have the others and really want to read them! With Malice was good - it just slightly underwhelmed me, partly I think due to its similarities to Dangerous Girls!

Clare Stone said...

We've both now finished it and its such a brilliant book although it broke us a little.

Clare Stone said...

Thanks for visiting!

Clare Stone said...

We've basically just joined our libraries together at this point! All my books are Anns and vice versa!
