WWW Wednesday | 16/12/2020


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?


 
Are You Sleeping by Kathleen Barber ended up being quite a surprising read for me. I hadn't heard anyone talking about it but I loved that it had a podcast element in it so I decided to borrow it from my library. It's an incredibly readable mystery/thriller with some interesting characters. Some parts were predictable (I did guess the ending around the halfway mark) but other twists came out of nowhere. I will say that I don't think the title and the tagline of this book match the contents very well, I wouldn't say the plot has much to do with sleeping or nightmares very much at all so don't go into this thinking that that's a main focus.
 

What are you currently reading?


 
I'm only less then 100 pages into One Snowy Week in Springhollow by Lucy Knott because I've just had such a slow reading week and I've been feeling pretty slumpy for some reason. I haven't felt the urge to pick anything up for the last few days. I'm not invested in this one yet so maybe that has something to do with it, I'm finding the MC annoying and the dialogue has been pretty off in some places. I'm going to keep going with it though and hope my reading picks up a bit.
 

I'm picking up 10 Blind Dates by Ashley Elston today in the hopes that I can get through it pretty quickly and actually finish a book! I'm hoping a cute YA festive romance is exactly what I need to pull me out of this slump. I love the premise, being set up on 10 blind dates by your family sounds choatic, and yeah, fingers crossed that I like it. 
 

What do you think you'll read next?


 
The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden was actually under my currently reading header on last weeks WWW Wednesday but I just have not been in the mood for it recently. I've only managed about 40 pages and I haven't picked it up since. I don't understand why because I loved the first book and I think i'll love this one too but motivation is just working against me at the moment. After 10 Blind Dates, I'm hoping that i'll be more inclined to pick it back up.  

 
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!
