WWW Wednesday | 30/09/2020


 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 finished Dispel Illusion by Mark Lawrence yesterday which is the third and final book in the Impossible Times series. I'm very torn with this book as I just didn't enjoy it as much as the first two but that may be my own fault. It's been over a year since I read the first two and I had forgotten a lot of what had happened and I just found so much of it confusing. I still love Mark Lawrence's writing but I just think I would have enjoyed this more if I'd read it closer to the other two books.

What are you currently reading?

I'm still reading Rebecca by Daphne De Maurier but I do only have around 70 pages left so it will definitely be finished today. I adore Daphne De Maurier's writing, she's such an incredible storyteller. I can understand why so many people love this book, it's so atmospheric and a little unnerving. The ending might change this but I have a feeling I'm going to be giving this five stars!
I've also just started Milkshakes for the Almost Dead by Lulu Wood which I wasn't actually planning on reading but my Kindle Unlimited runs outs on October 2nd so I thought I'd try and squeeze this one in before it does. I don't know too much about this as I'm only like 5 pages in, but I think it involves zombies and it's set by the seaside? One of my favourite booktubers mentioned it and I just thought it sounded interesting!

What do you think you'll read next?

I'm going to properly kick off my October TBR with The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson. I'm very excited to read this and then finally watch the Netflix adaptation although I'm now realising that the two are quite different!
It is the story of four seekers who arrive at a notoriously unfriendly pile called Hill House: Dr. Montague, an occult scholar looking for solid evidence of a "haunting"; Theodora, the lighthearted assistant; Eleanor, a friendless, fragile young woman well acquainted with poltergeists; and Luke, the future heir of Hill House. At first, their stay seems destined to be merely a spooky encounter with inexplicable phenomena. But Hill House is gathering its powers—and soon it will choose one of them to make its own.

Have you read any of these? What were your thoughts? What are you currently reading and hoping to pick up next? Leave a comment or link your own WWW Wednesdays below for me to check out!
