Welcome to my June WWW Wednesday post. This is a weekly (but I tend to do it monthly) challenge, hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words.
If you’re curious about what other people are reading right now too, join in! All you have to do is answer the three bookish questions below and put your blog link on Sam’s weekly post in the comments.
/ WHAT ARE YOU READING NOW?
I’m very excited to be reading Jessie Burton’s sequel to The Miniaturist, The House of Fortune. It’s historical fiction set 18 years after events in The Miniaturist and we meet Thea, as well as see what Nella is up to now. I’m about 1/3 of the way through and am loving it! It’s catapulted me right into 18th century Amsterdam.
/ WHAT HAVE YOU RECENTLY READ?
Double Booked by Lily Lindon is a fantastic, feel-good read about Georgina. A woman who realises she is bisexual – she’s attracted to a woman while in a long-term relationship with a man. The story is about Georgina exploring her sexuality and its told in such a funny, heart-warming way.
/ WHAT WILL YOU READ NEXT?
Last year I read Rizzio by Denise Mina and loved it, so I’m looking forward to trying her latest release, Confidence. Although, this is a sequel so hope I still get all the nuances in it. Will report back. Here’s the blurb:
Anna McDonald has made a terrible mistake. She has forced her blended family to vacation together. The weather is bad, her daughters are bored, and her ex-husband still insufferable. Oh, and Fin Cohen brought his latest girlfriend, too. So when news of a shocking kidnapping breaks, Anna and Fin do the responsible thing. They take off to solve the case.
Lisa Lee, a young YouTube star, has vanished after answering the door to what she thought was a pizza delivery. Police suspect her dad or the delivery guy, but in Lisa’s last known video she ventured into an abandoned chateau in France, where she uncovered a priceless artifact. Anna knows they must find this young woman before it’s too late. To do so, they need to track down that treasure, a casket that could hold answers to the greatest questions ever asked.
But Anna and Fin might have misunderstood the stakes of the game. Soon, they find themselves mixed up with some very dark characters, on another thrilling chase across Europe—and another race to save their own lives.
I’d love to know what you’re reading this week or plan on reading soon – let me know below!
