Hey guys! Today I am sharing with you a WWW Wednesday post. I’ve deviated from my TBR this month (surprise, surprise) but only because I’ve been reading a lot and can throw in a few other books! I’ve read seven books so far and I’m confident that I can easily read a ton more.
WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted by Sam over at Taking on a World of Words.
To take part, all you have to do is answer the following questions:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
Are You Watching? by Vincent Ralph: I picked this up spontaneously and I’m so glad I did because it’s actually really suspenseful! It has such a unique plot and the chapters are so short and punchy. The main character Jess applies to be part of a YouTube reality series where once a week she allows herself to be filmed, from the minute she wakes up until midnight. She’s hoping that with the help of the thousands of people watching, she can catch her mother’s killer, who was murdered by the Magpie Man ten years ago. It’s been pretty gripping so far and I’m looking forward to seeing how it progresses!
One by One by Ruth Ware: I wasn’t planning on reading this just yet but I got approved for an eARC and I couldn’t wait any longer! One by One is about a group of shareholders and directors of Snoop, a new music app, gathering for a make or break corporate retreat at a ski resort. But when an avalanche cuts them off and a board member goes missing, they’re forced to ask if someone would resort to murder to get what they want.
Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty: This is my second one star rating of the year, sadly. It was just terrible and I don’t know how I managed to finish it. Nine strangers basically go to a retreat and for like 90% of the book everything is fine and dandy so it was super boring. Finally stuff starts happening in the last 10% but it wasn’t good enough to redeem the overall story. I thought some of the characters would be connected or something, but the only ones keeping secrets from each other are the family members and I honestly did not care. Partly I think it was because the characters who had the most POV were in their early fifties and I drastically differed to their circumstances, so I couldn’t connect with them at all. I’ve heard Liane’s other books aren’t great either so I’m steering well clear of her in the future.
She by H.C. Warner: After struggling to get into this, I picked it up on the weekend and flew through it! It was so gripping but the plot was really so disturbing. It definitely needs to be represented more though and even though it was really uncomfortable to read at times, I’m glad I did pick it up. The ending felt a bit rushed though and I would have liked it to be have been more drawn out.
What I’ll read next
Auxiliary: London 2039 by Jon Richter: I spoke about this on my TBR post and I’m looking forward to read it! I don’t read much sci-fi but I couldn’t resist killer AI. I’m expecting it to be a very interesting story!
Queenslayer by Sebastien de Castell: This is the fifth book in the Spellslinger series and it’s about time I read it! As much as I love this series and would love for it to last as long as possible, I need to finish it before I forget what happened again!
I’m really happy with how June is going and I’m looking forward to reading all these awesome books! How’s your month going? I hope you enjoyed this post and thank you so much for reading!
