WWW Wednesday | 14/10/2020

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?

Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater is my most recently finished book. I finished it a couple of days ago and to be honest it didn't leave much of a lasting impression. I thought it was just a fairly average paranormal romance, it was cute but forgettable. I am still going to read the rest of the books in the series because I own them but I don't think it's one that I'll be holding on to after I do finish.

What are you currently reading?

I'm currently reading Joyland by Stephen King as my physical read. I've fallen ever so slightly behind with my October TBR just by how many pages I should be reading. I actually should have finished this by now but I'm still only just over 100 pages in. I am enjoying it though, I'm loving the setting and the writing although the horror aspect hasn't emerged yet. I'm hoping I can get most of the way through this today and get back on track.

One of Us Is Next by Karen M. McManus is my current ebook read, it's a library hold that I knew I wanted to get to in October. I have read One of Us is Lying and Two Can Keep a Secret and thought they were ok. I'm surprisingly really enjoying this one though, I think McManus's writing has improved a lot. I'm invested in the characters and the plot, I'm just hoping the ending isn't lacklustre.   

I also just started Daja's Book (Circle of Magic #3) by Tamora Pierce on audio. I've only listened to one chapter so I have no idea where the plot is going to go but I've been enjoying this series so far and I'm excited to continue. 

What do you think you'll read next?

The Woman in Black by Susan Hill is going to be the next book I pick up physically. I'm hoping to smash this one out in a day because it's super short and hopefully super creepy. I have seen the film but a lot of people do say the book is far better.
Set on the obligatory English moor, on an isolated causeway, the story has as its hero Arthur Kipps, an up-and-coming young solicitor who has come north from London to attend the funeral and settle the affairs of Mrs. Alice Drablow of Eel Marsh House. The routine formalities he anticipates give way to a tumble of events and secrets more sinister and terrifying than any nightmare: the rocking chair in the deserted nursery, the eerie sound of a pony and trap, a child's scream in the fog, and most dreadfully--and for Kipps most tragically--The Woman In Black.
