WWW Wednesday | 09/12/2020

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?

Forever by Maggie Stiefvater is my most recently finished book, I finally finished it on Monday. It took me a little longer to read this one then the others, I think but that may be because I've been kind of slumpy and putting off reading. This is the final book in the Wolves of Mercy Falls series (if you don't count the companion novel, Sinner) and again, this was a three star read just like the other two books. The series as a whole is fine, it's enjoyable for someone who loves paranormal romance but I'm just not really that person. This did kinda wrap things up nicely and was a decent conclusion to the series but I still have some unanswered questions left. 

What are you currently reading?

I decided to borrow Are You Sleeping by Kathleen Barber from my library's ebook app totally on a whim a couple of weeks ago even though I'd heard absolutely nothing about it. Big suprise, I'm really enjoying it. It's a physchological thriller that follows the daughter of a murder victim ten years after the murder and how her life is turned upside down after a podcaster begins to reinvestigate. This is incredibly readable so far and I'm loving the podcast elements included in between chapters and snippets of the interviews and such. It's really good so I'm just hoping the ending isn't a disappointment!

The Girl in the Tower (Winternight Trilogy #2) by Katherine Arden was one I was trying to get started on over the weekend but it didn't end up happening. I still haven't technically started it yet but I will be hopefully reading a chunk today to make up for lost time. I loved the first book so I have high hopes for this one too.

What do you think you'll read next?

The Snow Rose by Lulu Taylor is going to be my next physical read after The Girl in the Tower. My sister lent me this book a couple of months ago but I've been saving it for when the cold weather hit. I don't know too much about this book or author but my sister is a big fan. I think this is a mystery/thriller that follows a mother and daughter on the run and they end up squatting in an empty house before other people start showing up. Maybe? That's what I'm getting from the synopsis. 
Kate is on the run with her daughter, her identity hidden and her destination unknown to her husband and family. She's found a place where she and Heather can be alone and safe, a huge old house full of empty rooms. But it turns out she's not alone. There are the strange old ladies in the cottage next door, Matty and her blind sister Sissy. How long can Kate hide Heather's presence from them? And then the newcomers arrive, the band of eccentrics led by the charming and charismatic Archer. Kate begins to realize that she is involved in something strange and dangerous, and the past she's so desperate to escape is about to find her . . .


One Snowy Week in Springhollow by Lucy Knott is another library download that I decided to borrow because I was in the mood for some Christmas romance and this was the first one that I spotted. It's childhood best friends to lovers (I'm guessing) and it does sound pretty cute and wintery. It's a new release so it doesn't have too much feedback but hopefully it will give me all the feels. 
Tomboy Scarlett thought Devon would be her best friend forever. He was the only person in Springhollow who supported her ambitious artist dreams. But then one winter, Devon and his parents disappear without warning to start a new life in NYC and a devastated Scarlett is left alone to face her high-school bullies and overbearing mother.

Fast-forward ten years: Scarlett is playing it safe in her childhood village with a dull PA job and a wardrobe that passes her mother's old-fashioned standards. Meanwhile, Devon is a Hollywood heartthrob, starring in the latest superhero blockbuster. And he's finally coming home for Christmas...
