Welcome to my first WWW Wednesday! This meme/tag (not sure exactly what the difference is) is hosted by Taking on a World of Words. To participate, you just answer the three questions below and leave a link to your post in the comments of other people’s for them to look at. If you don’t have a blog, you can just leave a comment with your responses. Onto the questions!
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
I’ve recently discovered the wonderful world of NetGalley and reading eARCs on my iPad. Because of this, and because I’m saving most of my monthly TBR books for next week’s Buzzwordathon, all of my current reads are actually eARCs.
I am currently reading a delightful little book called Things My Son Needs to Know about the World by Fredrik Backman. This book is a collection of short essays written by Backman intended for his infant son to read in the future. I have already read A Man Called Ove by Backman, and this is a really great way to get to know him better as a person and a father. The essays I’ve read so far are very sweet and actually pretty funny.
On Sunday I finished a book called Not All Migrate by Krystyna Byers. I wish I had good things to say about this book.. but it was just NOT for me. It’s a story about a man who recently lost his wife and two daughters in a car accident caused by his wife. The autopsy report comes back saying that his wife was on some unknown drug, so the man decides to go hunting for the drug itself and the person who sold/gave it to his wife. This sounded like an interesting premise to me, but in reality the book was confusing, graphic, and all-around strange. I could go on about the things I didn’t like about it, but I think that’s unnecessary – I’ll be posting a more in-depth wrap up at the end of the month with all of my thoughts. I’m sure there are readers out there who would actually enjoy this book, but it left me feeling extremely confused and uncomfortable.
The next book I’ll be picking up is a thriller called He Will Kill You by Charlie Gallagher. I don’t know much about the plot, as I like to go into my thrillers blind, but I’m hoping it’s more straightforward than my last read and that I really enjoy it! I plan to post a full review of it on Friday, as March 15th is the book’s publishing date.
Thank you to NetGalley and the publishers of these books for providing me with the electronic Advanced Reader’s Copies in exchange for honest reviews!
Let me know if you think any of these books look interesting to you, or if you participated in this meme and have a link to share!
