It’s time for WWW Wednesday! This blog hop is hosted by Sam over at A World Of Words. Link up with us by commenting on Sam’s post for this week, and just answer the three questions.
What have you recently finished reading?
I finished Olmec Obituary by L. J. M. Owen. While it was amusing seeing all the references to the National Library (that’s where I work, and the main character’s workplace is based on it), I felt there was a bit much going on for one book and that it suffered for it. My review will be up on Friday.
I posted my review of The Midnight Watch by David Dyer and some thoughts about Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson (I realised I’d left it too long and couldn’t remember enough for a proper review, so that link just goes to my GoodReads review).
What are you currently reading?
Sixty Seconds by Jesse Blackadder is an exploration of a family’s grief after the youngest son drowns in the backyard pool. It also deals with social media and shady journalism in the light of such a tragedy. I’m really enjoying this… actually, “enjoy” probably isn’t the right word but it’s very gripping.
I’m also listening to Undead Girl Gang by Lily Anderson. This is about a Wiccan teenager who accidentally brings not only her best friend but two of the most popular students in her school back to life in an attempt to find out who killed them. I was expecting it to be a bit silly but it’s actually dealing with the main character’s grief in quite a realistic way. It does still have a sense of humour, though.
What do you think you will read next?
I’m not completely sure that it will be my thing, or that I’m in a fantasy mood right now, but since I have it from the library, I will pick up City of Lies by Sam Hawke. It’s due back on the 19th, so hopefully it will be gripping and I tear through it and don’t end up with any fines.
