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…

Welcome to this week’s WWW Wednesday!

I have book club this evening, where we’ll be discussing Blood Wedding, so will catch up with your comments and WWW posts as soon as possible.

I’m reading The Feed by Nick Clark Windo

My first impression, after the first few pages, was confusion.  I’m not a fan of books that confuse me and don’t explain what’s going on.  This may be fine when books use typical English language, but when ‘new’ words specific to the book’s plot are introduced well…..I’ll persevere!

The blurb

Your knowledge. Your memories. Your dreams.
If all you are is on the Feed, what will you become when the Feed goes down?

For Tom and Kate, in the six years since the world collapsed, every day has been a fight for survival. And when their daughter, Bea, goes missing, they will question whether they can even trust each other anymore.

The threat is closer than they realise…

 

 

 

 


I recently finished Alex by Pierre Lemaitre

As with Alex, this is a dark, very twisted and cunning tale!

The blurb

Sophie Duguet-young, successful, and happily married–thought at first she was becoming absentminded when she started misplacing her mail and forgetting where she’d parked her car the night before. But then, as her husband and colleagues pointed out with increasing frustration, she began forgetting things she’d said and done, too. And when she was detained by the police for shoplifting, a crime she didn’t remember committing, the confusion and blackouts that had begun to plague her took on a more sinister cast. Her marriage started to come apart at the seams.

Now Sophie is in much deeper water: the young boy she nannies is dead while in her care, a tragedy of which she has no memory. Afraid for her sanity and of what the police will do to her when the body is discovered, Sophie goes on the run, changing her identity and appearance to evade the law. Forced to lead a very different kind of life, one on the margins of society, Sophie wonders where everything went wrong.

Still, with a new name and a new life, she hopes that she’ll be able to put her demons to rest for good. It soon becomes clear, however, that the real nightmare has only just begun . . .


What’s up next? Ordeal by Innocence by Agatha Christie

It’s been a few months since I read a Christie and with the recent BBC drama just finishing, which I’ve not yet watched, I’m going to read this one next.  I believe that the ending in the TV adaptation was changed so this makes me more the curious.

The blurb

Evidence that clears the name of a boy sentenced for killing his adopted mother arrives too late to save his life – so who did kill her?

According to the courts, Jacko Argyle bludgeoned his mother to death with a poker. The sentence was life imprisonment

But when Dr Arthur Calgary turns up a year later with the proof that confirms Jacko’s innocence, he is too late – Jacko died behind bars from a bout of pneumonia.

Worse still, the doctor’s revelations re-open old wounds in the family, increasing the likelihood that the real murderer will strike again…

    I haven’t read any of these, but Blood Wedding sounds very good. I just finished ‘Time for Penance’. Its a crime thriller with a touch of time travel. I wasn’t sure I would like it because of the time travel, but it was very good. Happy reading.

      I love crime thriller but am usually unsure of time travel. However, since I read The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle am open to this genre a bit more, may check this one out 🙂

    I hope you persist with The Feed …

    We recorded Ordeal by Innocence and finished last night. Would be interested to hear what the ending is in the book Lindsay (and from the blurb there’s another difference too). I don’t usually watch this type of thing but thoroughly enjoyed it. Fab acting.
