WWW Wednesday | 12/06/2019

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words that highlights three questions:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

What did you recently finish reading?

I've had a pretty slow reading week so I didn't get as much reading done as I would have liked. I just finished Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson yesterday and I enjoyed it so much. It's definitely one of my favourite books I've read this year (so far at least!), I loved the writing style and the characters and I especially loved how cleverly everything unfolded. It did end on a massive cliffhanger and actually not much got resolved so I'm really excited to pick up the next book - The Vanishing Stair.

What are you currently reading?

I've hardly made any progress with Skycircus by Peter Bunzl which is a shame cause I am enjoying it but I've just been so busy and I've been more focused on reading Truly Devious. I'm only about 30% in and it's not pulling me in as much as the first two books but I'm
going to try to get a big chunk read today.

What do you think you'll read next?

I'm going to be picking up The Life + Death Parade by Eliza Wass as my next physical book. It's quite short, just over 200 pages, so I'm hoping I'll speed through this and get back on track with my TBR for the month.

One year ago, Kitty's boyfriend Nikki Bramley visited a psychic who told him he had no future. Now, he's dead.

With the Bramley family grieving in separate corners of their home, Kitty sets out to find the psychic who read Nikki his fate. Instead she finds Roan, an enigmatic boy posing as a medium who belongs to the Life and Death Parade--a group of supposed charlatans that explore, and exploit, the thin veil between this world and the next. A group whose members include the psychic... and Kitty's late mother.

Desperate to learn more about the group and their connection to Nikki, Kitty convinces Roan to return to the Bramley house with her and secures a position for him within the household. Roan quickly ingratiates himself with the Bramleys, and soon enough it seems like everyone is ready to move on. Kitty, however, increasingly suspects Roan knows more about Nikki than he's letting on. And when they finally locate the Life and Death Parade, and the psychic who made that fateful prophecy to Nikki, Kitty uncovers a secret about Roan that changes everything.

My next Ebook will be Beau and Bett by Kathryn Berla which was available to read straight away through Netgalley. This is a beauty and the beast retelling and whilst I generally prefer my retellings to be a bit darker, this seems like it could be a nice fluffy contemporary romance.

After Beau LeFrancois's mother wrecks Bett Diaz’s luxury SUV, his family faces an impossibly large bill—with no car insurance to help pay it. To pay off the debt, Beau spends his weekends working at the Diaz Ranch.

Beau’s prepared to work, but he’s definitely not prepared for the infamous temper of Bett Diaz, also known as "The Beast" at school. As Beau learns the secrets behind Bett’s tough exterior, he finds himself falling for her . . . until he catches Bett in a lie.
