Hello Hello! How are you?
We are halfway through the week again and it’s time to check in with what books I’ve been reading, have finished or have planned on my TBR. I’m slowly getting back into my reading vibes so I’m just taking it slowly and generally mood reading at the minute!
WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam over at Taking On A World of Words. WWW Wednesday is based on 3 questions:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
Everyone In My Family Has Killed Someone by Benjamin Stevenson
I only just started this book and I’m buddy reading it with Candyce from The Book Dutchesses and I’m already really enjoying it! I really like the humour and the way it is written. I didn’t know what I was expecting going in, but it’s an easy read and really effortless to read. We are reading a section every two days so I think it’ll be done fairly quickly as it’s not a very long book!
A Second Chance (#3 The Chronicles of St Mary’s) by Jodi Taylor
I’m about 150 pages into this third instalment in this series and I’m having the best time reading it. I fell in love with this series as soon as I started reading it after Fiona from Fi’s Bibliofiles recommended it to me, and even my husband is obsessed with these books. I’m so happy to have the time to continue the series, as I love all the books so far. I’m glad to be back in these worlds and see my favourite characters again. I still love the humour just as much as it feels like such a warm hug to read this book. This one is mostly set in Troy — also a part of history I adore — and I can’t wait to continue it this week.
Paradis perdus (#1 La traversée des temps) by Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt
The last book I’m currently reading is a really chunky French book and the first one in a historical series. It’s a bit hard to explain but this author basically researched for 30 years on like sociological, medical, archaeological, historical, and political elements about life from the very first human until today. And he has planned 9 books so far going from the Stone Age to contemporary times, but only the first 3 are written/published so far. I already like this author’s writing and the story is intriguing, although quite hard-going to read, so I’m going to take my time with it and see how I enjoy it!
99% Mine by Sally Thorne
I read this book in only two days and would have read it in one single sitting if I didn’t have to adult and go to work and sleep. OMG I binged it and loved every minute! It was my first time reading a book by this author and I felt all of the characters’s feelings and emotions so strongly. There is a great dose of humour, sarcasm, and omg the chemistry between these characters just jumped off the page. I loved it so so much and I will have to pick up The Hating Game too! I gave it 5 stars and I’ll hopefully have a review up on the blog in the next week or two!
Grim, fils du marais by Gaël Aymon
I still haven’t started this book but I am keeping it on my list because it’s one of my holds from my library and I know I have to read it fairly quickly, even though no one else is waiting for it after me. I can’t remember what it’s about, but it’s MG/YA fantasy story about a young boy and his quest. I’m excited to start it and have a good feeling about it. I also love the cover, so I have high expectations and hope that it meets them!
That’s all for now, I hope you enjoyed reading this post.
See you soon, stay safe,
