Time for another Wednesday! The problem is with writing regularly on a Wednesday is that the year feels like it’s spinning away from you before you can even really take it in. So odd.
While August was a very successful reading month, September so far has been a bit less so. My health has been a difficult card to negotiate, and that’s had a huge impact on how many books I have been able to really take in.
What is exciting to be able to write about is my new position with Hot Key Books as one of their Ambassadors. Along with nine other fabulous and utterly lovely people, we’ll be working throughout the year with Hot Key, and to start us off we were all lucky enough to receive a pile of books big enough to keep us busy for a while! They said it would be like Christmas and my goodness were they right.
So – WWW Wednesday. As ever, WWW Wednesday asks three questions about your reading:
- What have you recently finished reading?
- What are you currently reading?
- What will you be reading next?
If you’ve been around my blog before, you’ll know I’m always awful with that last question but GUESS WHAT – I actually have an answer this time!!
What have you recently finished reading?
I’ve mentioned the Christmas-come-early from the lovely Hot Key Books, and my recently finished read was one of the books they sent my way. S.T.A.G.S by M.A. Bennett is a young adult thriller, with the opening line being “I think I might be a murderer”. Needless to say, I was gripped from the word go, and I loved every page. Fast paced and taking twists you really won’t see coming, S.T.A.G.S is the first in a trilogy, and I can’t wait to jump into book two.
What are you currently reading?
Released yesterday, the latest book in the Strike series by Robert Galbraith is Troubled Blood. I’ve been waiting for this book to be released since the last page of the previous book, and I sat twitching by the front door for a large portion of the day, hoping it would arrive quickly (it didn’t, it arrived about 5pm, at which point I retreated to my craft room and closed the door). I’m already utterly absorbed and really had to drag myself away just to write this post.
What are you planning on reading next?
I told you, for once I have an answer! My next read will be May Day by Josie Jaffery. I’m taking part in the blog tour for the book next week, and I’m looking forward to digging in. I know that people that are already part way through are really enjoying it, and it has sparkling reviews, so I’m excited to try out something a bit different. I also have an ARC of Josie’s soon to be published The Wolf and The Water, so it will be great to have a second book by the author to jump into, even if it’s from a different series.
So there we go! That’s how things are looking this Wednesday in the middle of September (I have no idea how that has happened). Here’s to many good books this month!
