WWW Wednesday!

Hey guys! It’s been over a month since my last Top 5 Wednesday post and since I’ve been reading quite a bit recently I thought I’d update you all on where I’m up to with my books! Even though I work forty hours a week now I still find time to read on the train journey to work, on my break and then I get in a few hours before I go to bed. I’ve been told by so many people that they quit reading when they got a full time job and I’m determined not to do the same. I love reading and won’t let a job get in the way of that! So let me share my recent reads with you all!

If I Die Before I Wake by Emily Koch: This book is just insane! Insane! I’m sure I’ve already spoken about it but basically the main character is in a coma after he was involved in an accident and his family are debating withdrawing life support. He’s aware of everything that’s going on around him but he can’t move or speak. He can’t do anything, he can only listen. He begins to suspect the accident that put him in hospital wasn’t an accident and that someone actually tried to kill him. So now he has to try and solve his own murder before his family decide to let him go. This is such an amazing and creative idea for a story??? I’m just blown away by it??? I’ve nearly finished this book and I’m so excited to see how it all ends! I have no idea what’s going to happen, I’m completely in the dark and I love it! I’m completely hooked on this story and I can’t wait to write a review for this book!

Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood by Oliver Bowden: I read the first Assassin’s Creed book in April which honestly seems like a lifetime ago now! When I started this I hadn’t realised how much I’d actually missed Ezio and how much I’d miss this world. I sat down with this book before bed and when I went to turn my light out I realised I’d already read 100 pages which is just insane. This is just a book you can truly get lost in and I can’t wait to lose myself some more in these pages!

WWW Wednesday!

Hey guys! I’ve been so busy this week with work that I haven’t really had as much time to dedicate to my blog as I’d have liked. With that being said, I hope you don’t mind me doing a WWW Wednesday post today just because it’s quick and easy to do! I also have an update post coming for you on Friday because there might be a slight change to my blogging schedule next month. I’ll explain why in that post but for now lets get into today’s post!

The Cost of Living by Rachel Ward: This was kindly sent to me by the publisher for review and I’m also taking part in a blog tour for it! I’m in a mad dash to finish it this week because the blog tour takes place when I’m on holiday. I want to have my review written up and scheduled to post so even if I only have a little free time I’m shoving my nose in this book! It’s really good so far but it’s very slow and not a lot is happening. I like the characters and I like that they work in a supermarket. It’s so normal and really relatable, especially if you work in retail.

Welcome to the Slipstream by Natalka Burian: Admittedly, I’m not very far in this book yet but what I have read is quite good. I’m liking it so far and hoping to give it my full attention when I finish The Cost of Living! This was also sent to me for review and it focuses on mental illness which was what drew me to it. I have only read a few books about this but I loved them both so hopefully I love this one too!

Hey guys! It’s been nearly a month since I last did a WWW Wednesday post so I thought I’d bring it back again. I’m so excited to share with you all some of the books I have been reading recently! Hope you enjoy!

Spellslinger by Sebastien De Castell: This was a very spontaneous read! I just grabbed it off my shelf and dived right in. I’m already over halfway through and I’m hoping to finish it by the end of the week. This book has some sassy characters and I like it. I love Kellen so much, he’s such a cute character.

Here and Gone by Haylen Beck: I was approved to read this on NetGalley and honestly I’m kind of struggling with it. I thought the cover looked really intriguing and the synopsis made me immediately want to start reading it. I’m 40% in and it’s not really grabbing me like I wanted it to. I don’t like any of the characters that much and the plot is annoying me, it’s very strange. I’m going to try and push through because so far I have read and reviewed every book this publisher has approved me for. I don’t want to let them down with this one now!

Emma in the Night by Wendy Walker: I received an ARC of this via NetGalley and I’m currently only 20% in so far. It’s very interesting but also quite strange. I like it but I’m not quite sure what’s going on at the minute. The synopsis made the book sound really good so hopefully the more I read the better it will get.

A Betrayal in Blood

Currently reading:

Sherlock Holmes: A Betrayal in Blood by Mark A. Latham: I am halfway through this and I’m really enjoying it! I love reading Sherlock Holmes books and this one actually involves Dracula too! It focuses on what happened in Dracula by Bram Stoker, mainly Lucy Westenra’s death and the aftermath of it all. Holmes believes those hailed as heroes are not what they seem and he and Watson find themselves targeted at every turn. I can’t wait to write a full review for this!

Hey guys! Before I get into this post I just want to celebrate my blog being a year old today! On 24th May 2016 I created this blog and published my first post and my first review which was Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare! Looking back that review is really terrible and my reviews have vastly improved since then as I’ve grown more confident sharing my writing online. When I first started this blog I only thought I’d last a few months before I quit but I can happily say I am still here and don’t plan on going anywhere! I love blogging so much! It’s so fun and I love talking to other bloggers who are passionate about reading! Thank you so much for sticking with me and I hope you continue to do so!

Today I am sharing with you all another WWW Wednesday post! WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted by Sam over at Taking on a World of Words.

Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher: I recently finished the TV show and I was surprised to find that I actually really liked it. The acting was superb and it was a very addicting show to watch. It gripped me from start to finish and it was heartbreaking watching it all unfold. I wasn’t planning on reading the book mainly because I heard it romanticises and glorifies suicide. But then NetGalley had ebooks for request so I thought why not give it a try and if I don’t like it, it doesn’t really matter since I didn’t pay for it. So far it’s good but not very gripping, everything is going by really fast but the characters, especially Clay, aren’t as interesting as they are in the TV show. I definitely prefer the TV show but I will finish this book because it’s really easy to read and isn’t very long.

Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare: I finally have this beautiful and glorious book in my hands! Make that THREE copies in my hand! I pre-ordered the Waterstone’s paperback and hardback and then popped into WHSmith yesterday and purchased their edition! So three copies of Lady Midnight and three copies of Lord of Shadows. No regrets! Guys, this book is so BEAUTIFUL! It’s just mind-blowingly gorgeous. The spine is so pretty, spine beauty right there. I’m not very far in yet because I’m trying to finish Thirteen Reasons Why first but I’m so excited to get fully invested in the story! How have we waited over a year for this?! Its been torture at times.

Evil Star by Anthony Horowitz: If you want to know why I am randomly reading the second book in a series all of a sudden, I explain in the recently finished part! It was very spontaneous and this series is not on my TBR but since I am flying through them, I doubt it will affect my TBR much! I am nearly 100 pages into this already and it’s enjoyable. I want to unhaul some books and this series is part of that but I want to read it first before I unhaul it.

If We Were Villains by M.L. Rio: I finally started this ARC yesterday! It was sent to me by Titan Books and I was so excited to be given the chance to read it! I read the synopsis and knew immediately that I wanted to read it. Admittedly, I’m not really a fan of Shakespeare but this book sounded really interesting and like the perfect spooky crime thriller. So far I like it which is a good sign!
