WWW Wednesday #28 – 11 August 2021

I moved into my home office this week. The reading room half is still a work in progress – bookcases are in short supply from all the home renovation taking place in lockdown – but at least I can sit on my laptop and type this instead of working off my phone.

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam A. Stevens on Taking on a World of Words.

The three Ws are:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you’re read next?

Rebel Ideas by Matthew Syed

No progress again, although I have at least unpacked it from a box now.

Near Mortal by Julia Alty

I’m reading this on online book club Pigeonhole. Or, rather I’m not reading this. I’m not getting into at all so finding any excuse to put off reading more. There’s a good chance I’m going to DNF this one.

You Can Run by Karen Cleveland

You Can Run is published at the end of this month. Currently reading an e-ARC of it via NetGalley and it’s pretty good. Undercover spy stuff with a former CIA analyst on the run teaming up with an investigative journalist to find out who is trying to ensure the USA goes to war with Syria.

The Rising Tide by Sam Lloyd

A rollercoaster thrill ride of a book. My review.

Dancing With The Dead by SA Dunphy

Published in early September so I’ll publish my review sometime in the next week.

The Devil’s Advocate by Steve Cavanagh

Another awesome instalment in the Eddie Flynn series. My review.

The Heights by Louise Candlish

An unreliable narrator driven to obsession by the death of her teenage son. My review.

Billy Summers by Stephen King

The Dark by Emma Haughton

Invite Me In by Emma Curtis

Billy Summers is still on my TBR pile, but that’s because I know as soon as I start it I won’t want to put it down, so delaying starting it is just delaying the inevitable finishing it and having to go back to waiting for a new Stephen King release.

Both The Dark and Invite Me In are both Pigeonhole reads. The Dark has already started on the app, but I haven’t joined in yet because I feel if I open the app I should really continue with Near Mortal. Invite Me In is due to start in the next few days. Once I force myself to try Near Mortal again I can make a decision whether to stick with it or DNF it, either way it’ll free me up to focus on these other two books, which do look good.

Have you read any of these? Do you have any recommendations for me to add to my TBR list? I’d love to hear from you in the comments.
