WWW Wednesday #5

WWW Wednesday is hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words! All you have to do is answers the following three questions: What are you currently reading? What did you recently finish reading? What do you think you’ll read next? Currently Reading Well, actually, I’m not currently reading anything. But I am planning on starting BLINDSHOT by Québec author, Denis Coupal, tonight. It’s a thriller set in Québec which should be fun. Just Finished I finished reading THE WOO-WOO by Lindsay Wong, last week, which I really struggled with. It was the wrong kind of read for me—a memoir about a dysfunctional family, but I didn’t like the flippant way the author treated her mother’s mental illness. It was all a bit crass.

RESURRECTION BAY by Emma Viskic — It’s not often I pick up a debut novel by a new (to me) author, and am totally blown away on just about every level, not just by good writing, but thoroughly absorbing characters.

My April Reading Plan

Yes, there’s a plan. There’s always a plan. But sometimes, the plan doesn’t always work out, and then? You need a Plan B. Doesn’t everyone have a plan B? And … eh, where was I going with this? Oh, yeah, the books I’m planning on reading in April, since March was such a bust. My books from Indigo arrived yesterday and, when I took them out to look at the covers, I discovered they all feature water. Either the sea or a lake, and all stormy looking … hmm! Anyway, here’s my proposed list having already finished THE LIAR: KINGDOM OF THE BLIND by Louise Penny THE GOLDEN TRESSES OF THE DEAD by Alan Bradley US AGAINST YOU by Fredrik Backman RESURRECTION BAY by Emma Viskic THE DARK LAKE by Sarah Bailey SALT TO THE SEA by Ruta Sepetys TWISTED by Steve Cavanagh And you, what reading, if anything, do you have planned, or will you just wing it?
