It’s Wednesday again. We’re already half way through February which I’m pleased about as that means we’re getting closer to Spring. I don’t like the dark Winter months and am always glad when March arrives.

Wednesday means that it’s time for WWW Wednesday. This is one of my favourite memes and I love taking part in it and reading everybody else’s posts. It’s currently hosted by Sam and it can be found on her blog Taking on a world of words which can be found here.

The idea of WWW Wednesday is just to answer three questions about what you are reading, have just finished and are about to read so here goes for this week.

What I’m currently reading

This is brilliant so far. It’s set on a small island off the coast of Sweden and is about a young detective, Hanna, who returns to her home town after working in Stockholm. The problem is that her father was a convicted murderer and not everyone thinks that she ought to have returned.

So many of my favourite crime novels are set in small isolated communities. I think it’s because you can have a smaller pool of characters and really create a society for them which is harder in a big city setting.

What I have recently finished reading

Anything Could Happen by Lucy Diamond was a lovely book. The story of Lara being reunited with her one night stand of 18 years ago when her daughter insisted on meeting her father was both amusing and touching. Another great book from one of my favourite authors.

The Last Graduate by Naomi Norvik is the sequel to A Deadly Education and I think I felt the same way as I did about the first one. Both books have had sections that have really bored me especially when there is masses of information about the monsters that are seeking to get the students. But then, I did love the plot and the characters so a bit of a mixed bag.

The Justice of Kings by Richard Swan I’m attacking the March releases on my NetGalley shelf at the moment. My review for this book can be found here

Wild and Wicked Things by Francesca May was another NetGalley ARC. I really enjoyed this gothic tale about witchcraft on a small island just after the first world war.

What I am intending to read next

I really think that it’s time that I read this classic. .

That’s the current state of my reading at the moment. How’s your Wednesday looking?

  1. I hope you love To Kill a Mockingbird. After you read it, try and find the movie, both were so good. But, I’m glad I read the book before the movie.
