WWW Wednesday | 08/09/2021

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 the audiobook of Locke & Key by Joe Hill & Gabriel Rodriguez yesterday and it was definitely fantastically produced with some incredible actors (Haley Joel Osment and Tatiana Maslany!) and overall an immersive listen that had me on the edge of my seat. I will say I agree with some reviewers though that this is probably best as a companion listen to the original graphic novels as it can be difficult to follow at times, it occasionally feels like you're watching a film without the visuals. 

What are you currently reading?

My reading pace isn't what I was hoping it would be but I am around 150 pages into Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid. I was hoping to love this and I absolutely do! I love the way this novel is written and how we're getting the timeline of events through interviews with the characters and getting to see how differently they remember things happening. I'm already hooked so I can't wait to see where the story goes as we progress through the years. 

I'm almost halfway through To Break a Covenant by Alison Ames and really liking it. It's a bit slow as I still don't feel like the plot has really got going yet but I love the atmosphere of the town and the characters and the building sense of uneasiness about the mine and the mysteries surrounding it. I'm glad I'm enjoying because it's always a chance when it comes to books you're reading for blog tours!

What do you think you'll read next?

I'm going to pick up Hereafter by Tara Hudson after Daisy Jones to fulfil the ghosts/paranormal prompt for the Magical Readathon. I've had this book for years and just never felt the urge to pick it up but I'm trying to prioritise books that have been on my shelf for forever.  
Can there truly be love after death?

Drifting in the dark waters of a mysterious river, the only thing Amelia knows for sure is that she's dead. With no recollection of her past life—or her actual death—she's trapped alone in a nightmarish existence. All of this changes when she tries to rescue a boy, Joshua, from drowning in her river. As a ghost, she can do nothing but will him to live. Yet in an unforgettable moment of connection, she helps him survive.

Amelia and Joshua grow ever closer as they begin to uncover the strange circumstances of her death and the secrets of the dark river that held her captive for so long. But even while they struggle to keep their bond hidden from the living world, a frightening spirit named Eli is doing everything in his power to destroy their newfound happiness and drag Amelia back into the ghost world . . . forever.
