It’s been a couple of weeks now since my last confession…..no, no, no since my last WWW Wednesday :0
Life has been pretty hectic and in all honesty I fell out of love with my blogging for a short while. I often feel like I’m doing the same thing, all the time and I got a bit bored. So I may just participate in WWW when I feel like I have something worthwhile to contribute rather than just going through the motions each week. I’m away on holiday next week and then I start my new job so busy busy….
This weekly meme is hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. It’s open to all to participate. Why not join in and let us know what’s on your reading list this week…
To join in, just answer the following three questions…
• What are you currently reading?
• What did you recently finish reading?
• What do you think you’ll read next?
If you wanna check out the blurbs, click the images 🙂
Waterland by Graham Swift
Our book club read for June and the actual look of the book just filled me with dread. Page after page of small heavy black type with no breaks. A book that you put off reading because you think it’ll take months to read. Shame it was filled with huge chunks of boringness about river beds and how silt works. We meet this evening to discuss and I’m not sure if I’ll finish it.
I recently finished
A Stitch in Time by Amanda James
An enjoyable rom-com with the twist of time travel. I preferred the historical parts more than the present day scenes. Some of the rom was just a little too fluffy for me but a fun read nonetheless.
I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga
I wanted a book that would excite me so I ditched my planned read of All Things Cease to Appear and picked up I Hunt Killers instead. Thanks to Claire at Art & Soul for the recommendation and the actual book. A very good read if you’re into serial killers. Reminded me of the John Grisham Theodore Boone series due to the explaining and the fact that the protagonist is 17 and manages to get himself included in murder investigation…..whaaaaatttt?
An Unfamiliar Murder by Jane Isaac
I met Jane at an author/blogger meet up back in March and she very kindly sent me her first book for review and I’m pleased to say I really enjoyed it. If you liked The Girl in the Ice and Someone Else’s Skin then this is another you should enjoy.
What’s up next?
The Murder at the Vicarage by Agatha Christie
The book that first introduces us to Miss Marple and a book that I started recently but put down to finish something else so will be glad to get back to it.
The Storied Life of AJ Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin
A book that has been on my radar for a while and I picked up a copy only recently. This will be my holiday read next week. I might be able to squeeze in another book but I’m not sure how much reading time I’ll have.
Have you read any of this week’s choices? Got any holiday recommendations?
Also, just out of interest, do you like to see the blurb in the post above, or would you click the cover to find out more?
Thanks for getting to the bottom…it’s been a very busy post! xx
