Welcome to this week’s WWW Wednesday!
WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words, the revamped take on of the meme hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm. It’s open for anyone to join in and is a great way to share what you’ve been reading!
The Three Ws are:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
What am I currently reading?
So you’ll notice my current read isn’t festive. Well I received a unintentional boot up the backside about my Netgalley shelf by a post from one of my favourite publishers saying “some figures through from NetGalley to say that around one third of people who request and are approved for books leave reviews.”
I’ll hold my hand up, I’m guilty of going a tad request crazy in the beginning of my membership of Netgalley and having a shocking feedback ratio for a good while. I am working on this but after reading that post, I decided rather than read some more festive books that I might not review here (you don’t want reviews of Christmas book in January right?!), I’d be better clearing more of my Netgalley shelf. So here we are, me reading a 6 year old book… here’s the blurb:
You won’t be able to put it down.
Just remember to breathe.
Alex is sinking. Slowly but surely, she’s cut herself off from everything but her one true love – drink. Until she’s forced to write a piece about a coma ward, where she meets Amy.
Amy is lost. When she was fifteen, she was attacked and left for dead in a park. Her attacker was never found. Since then, she has drifted in a lonely, timeless place. She’s as good as dead, but not even her doctors are sure how much she understands.
Alex and Amy grew up in the same suburbs, played the same music, flirted with the same boys. And as Alex begins to investigate the attack, she opens the door to the same danger that has left Amy in a coma…
What have I recently finished reading?
My festive reading came to a killer end with Alexandra Benedict’s The Christmas Murder Game. An absolutely brilliant locked room murder mystery – you can catch my review from yesterday here.
I then squeezed in another long-standing resident of my Netgalley shelf, Sister Dear by Hannah Mary McKinnon. I whizzed through this thriller. I’ll be reviewing in the new year.
And finally this week I took a trip north of the border to Heartcross for the latest instalment of the Love Heart Lane series from Christie Barlow, The Hidden Secrets Of Bumblebee Cottage. I’ll be reviewing this on New Year’s Eve, when it’s published.
What am I reading next?!?
January is looming so I’m going back to my blog tour reads after a good few weeks off (which I have enjoyed). First up for 2023 is Ronnie Turner’s second novel, So Pretty. Im joining the tour on Monday 9th with publication day 10 days later. The Netgalley shelf will get another look in as well – I’m just trying to be more organised with my committed dates.
So guys, what have you been reading??
Oh dear I’m guilty of that as well, although if I love a book and have made notes I’ll leave my review pretty much straight away! I’ve got a low percentage rate but they keep sending me widgets and approving my requests. What can you do? 😂 xx
