It’s WWW Wednesday time! This weekly meme is hosted by Sam over at Taking on a World of Words – if you’d like to join in too, all you have to do is answer the three bookish questions below, pop your blog link on Sam’s weekly post in the comments and have a little look at what everyone else is reading!
So, this week…
/ WHAT ARE YOU READING NOW?
From my Kindle shelf: My Lovely Wife by Samantha Downing. I wasn’t sure what to make of it at first, but by about 20% in, I found myself hooked on this thriller. Narrated by… um, I either can’t remember his name or it’s not been mentioned (will work this out in time for my review!), but he and his wife have a most unusual and illegal pastime… I’ll leave any more details for my review but I can say it’s a gripping read and I really can’t guess the ending!
/ WHAT HAVE YOU RECENTLY READ?
I don’t think I’m being hyperbolic to say that The Colour of Bee Larkham’s Murder by Sarah J. Harris is one of my favourite reads of 2019 (so far). I recently devoured this thanks to it’s unique narrator; Jasper has autism, synesthesia (a condition where for every word, sound, object or person, he sees colours) and a complete inability to recognise faces. He is also the key witness to a murder and has to piece together what really happened in his own endearingly unique way. I’ve honestly not read a book like it – it was so, so good!
/ WHAT WILL YOU READ NEXT?
I have one or two lovely blog tour books to read this month, which I am looking forward to, so along with those I am very drawn to my latest NetGalley book, Never Have I Ever by Joshilyn Jackson, it’s a mystery / thriller from one of my new favourite publishers, Raven Books (‘for all those who like their books with a touch of the dark side’) – everything I’ve read from them so far, I’ve loved, so the bar is set high! Never Have I Ever is described as:
It starts as a game at a book group one night. Never Have I Ever… done something I shouldn’t.
But Amy Whey has done something she shouldn’t. And Roux, the glamorous newcomer to Amy’s suburban neighbourhood, knows exactly what that is.
Roux promises she will go away. She will take herself and her son, who is already growing dangerously close to Amy’s teenage stepdaughter, and she will go. If Amy plays by her rules.
But Amy isn’t prepared to lose everything she’s built. She’s going to fight back, and in this escalating game of cat and mouse, there can be only one winner.
Sounds good, right? I’d love to know what you’re reading this week, let me know below!
