This 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?

My last book pick for this round of The Final Book Support Group is a short story collection from Agatha Christie, A Deadly Affair. I don’t know if this even technically counts as a sequel but it has stories with Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple plus some of her other protagonists. Honestly, this is a book I wanted to get to last month since the theme for all the stories is romance so I’m going to count it. I’m roughly 40% in and so far I’m enjoying it. I love how quick and engaging all the stories are.

I took a bit of a break from reading Percy Jackson because I didn’t enjoy the last one but I’m looking forward to the big battle all the books have been leading up to. I just picked this up today so I’m very early into it.

I’m almost done with The Perfumist of Paris for my blog tour review tomorrow. I didn’t get through this one nearly as quickly as I did the last book in the series. Parts of this story I really enjoy and other parts I am bored. But I love these characters and I’m sad that this is the last book in the series.

What have you recently finished?

Over the weekend I read The Promised Neverland Vol.5-9. I love this manga series so much and I can’t wait to get my hands on more volumes. At the same time I don’t want to rush through it since I only have 11 more volumes to go. I love the story, the characters, and the twists and turns that happen.

Ice Planet Barbarians, The Ten Thousand Doors of January, and The Battle of the Labyrinth were all ok reads. I will definitely be picking up more books in the Ice Planet Barbarian series since I rolled and landed on Sci Fi again. I am looking forward to it though because in the author note she did say that the tone of the other books in the series is different. Although for me I didn’t like how rushed the ending was and the convenient way to communicate. I actually dnf’d Well Played at 80%. The romance in this book is quite possibly the worse romance I have ever read. The hero violates her trust so many times and he never has any consequence for it. I will eventually read the last book in this trilogy since I did enjoy the first one a lot.

What do you think you’ll read next?

The publisher was kind enough to send me a finished copy of this book and it sounds incredible and I can’t wait to read it. It comes out on April 25.

After posting a negative book review, a woman living in a remote location begins to wonder if the author is a little touchy—or very, very dangerous—in this pulse-pounding novel of psychological suspense and terror from the critically acclaimed author of No Exit and Hairpin Bridge.

Emma Carpenter lives in isolation with her golden retriever Laika, house-sitting an old beachfront home on the rainy Washington coast. Her only human contact is her enigmatic old neighbor, Deek, and (via text) the house’s owner, Jules.

One day, she reads a poorly written—but gruesome—horror novel by the author H. G. Kane, and posts a one-star review that drags her into an online argument with none other than the author himself. Soon after, disturbing incidents start to occur at night. To Emma, this can’t just be a coincidence. It was strange enough for this author to bicker with her online about a lousy review; could he be stalking her, too?

As Emma digs into Kane’s life and work, she learns he has published sixteen other novels, all similarly sadistic tales of stalking and murder. But who is he? How did he find her? And what else is he capable of?
