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?

I finished Pet Semetary by Stephen King on Monday and wow, what a read! I didn't have a solid grasp on what this book was about other than what the title suggests and it's definitely better to go into this one blind. I really like how Stephen King builds up his stories, he includes a lot of backstory for the first half and then really builds up the tension for the last 100 or so pages. It was a really tense read and I'm looking forward to reading more of his books as this was only my third to date.

What are you currently reading?

I'm about 23% into No Exit by Taylor Adams and I think i'm already hooked. This is one that a lot of people really enjoyed and I was really in the mood for a thriller as we enter the autumn months. This is about a college student who gets stranded at a rest stop in the middle of a snowstorm and finds a kidnapped child in the back of a car in the parking lot. I'm expecting plenty of twists and growing tension with this one!

I've also just started listening to Tris's Book (Circle of Magic #2) on Scribd and so far I'm really enjoying this fantasy middle grade series. Tris was my favourite character in the first book so I'm excited to learn more about her and her backstory. I will say that it threw me off slightly that they've changed some of the voice actors but I'll probably get used to it after a while.

What do you think you'll read next?

I'm picking up Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini as my next physical read. I've had this book for 5+ years and although my reading tastes have changed slightly as I've moved into my twenties, I'm still willing to give this a go. This a YA romance with greek mythology mixed into it so I am intrigued.

Helen Hamilton has spent her entire sixteen years trying to hide how different she is - no easy task on an island as small and sheltered as Nantucket. And it's getting harder. Nightmares of a desperate desert journey have Helen waking parched, only to find her sheets damaged by dirt and dust. At school she's haunted by hallucinations of three women weeping tears of blood... and when Helen first crosses paths with Lucas Delos, she has no way of knowing they're destined to play the leading roles in a tragedy the Fates insist on repeating throughout history.

As Helen unlocks the secrets of her ancestry, she realizes that some myths are more than just legend. But even demigod powers might not be enough to defy the forces that are both drawing her and Lucas together - and trying to tear them apart.
