This fun weekly meme is hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words and all you need to do to participate is answer the following three questions:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
What are you currently reading?
I started Horrid over the weekend and I am obsessed with it. I read Summer of Salt last year by Katrina Leno last year and it was one of my favorite books of 2019 so I knew I couldn’t pass up her newest release. This book is very creepy and really lives up to its cover.
I started Nemesis back in August and then I started slumping so I put it down. I picked it back up last night and I have flown through the last 200 pages of this book. I guess I can officially say my slump is over because all I want to do is sit and read the fifty or so pages I have left. Nesbo has such a creative mind and his stories are so complex that I am in awe. I know that I will finish this as soon as my kids are in bed and I can get some uninterrupted reading time in!
What have you recently finished reading?
I will have individual reviews coming this month for each of these books but I thought I would give you a one sentence review of each book so you know what I thought of them.
Snow Blind: An Agatha Christie inspired Nordic Noir locked room mystery that I enjoyed a lot and will be continuing on with the series.
White Is For Witching: This was a gothic and weird haunted house story involving generations of women from the same family and I was mesmerized. Huge trigger warning for anorexia.
Shirley: I was so in love with this story until the the last ten or so chapters and then Charlotte Bronte deviated from her characters and the narrative that we had been following for the majority of the book.
Invisible Girl: I am in the minority here but I hated this book and it has the distinction of being my only one star read of the year.
What do you think you’ll read next?
I bought this last year around this time to read during the holidays and then I never got around to it. It has been starting at me the past year begging to be read so I’m finally going to read it this week. Cozy mysteries that involve food are one of my favorite comfort reads and I think we can all agree that we could use a comfy escape this week.
