WWW Wednesday #5

Bonjour tout la monde: welcome to WWW Wednesday, a weekly meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words in which we ask three simple questions:

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

So, what have I been up to this last week, I hear you ask? Well, let’s see …

What I’m currently reading.

I started TWO GIRLS DOWN by Louisa Luna last night, a new series and a new author to me. I read 130 pages but, to be honest, I’m not loving this one, but who knows, maybe it will surprise me.

“When two young sisters disappear from a strip mall parking lot in a small Pennsylvania town, their devastated mother hires an enigmatic bounty hunter, Alice Vega, to help find the girls. Immediately shut out by a local police department already stretched thin by budget cuts and the growing OxyContin and meth epidemic, Vega enlists the help of a disgraced former cop, Max Caplan. Cap is a man trying to put the scandal of his past behind him and move on, but Vega needs his help to find the girls, and she will not be denied.

With little to go on, Vega and Cap will go to extraordinary lengths to untangle a dangerous web of lies, false leads, and complex relationships to find the girls before time runs out, and they are gone forever.”

What I recently finished.

If you follow this blog regularly, you’ll already have seen my review on Louise Penny’s latest Three Pines mystery, ALL THE DEVILS ARE HERE—her sixteenth entry into this long running series. It also has to be my first entry on this year’s Best Of Reads and what will be one of my Top Ten best reads of all-time.

Yes, it was that good. Don’t believe me? Go read my review and if you’re not convinced, go read it yourself!

What will I read next?

Ah, that’s always one of the big questions as, each time I finish one book, I never know what I might read next. I can be something of a mood reader so like to keep several choices to hand. But, I’m leaning towards the next book in Barbara Nickless’s excellent Sydney Rose Parnell series, AMBUSH. The first two were both excellent reads and you can check my reviews to learn what I thought, in detail. But Nickless is now one of my Go-To authors.

“Railway cop and former Marine Sydney Parnell is on the hunt. So is a killer she knows only as the Alpha. They’re in a race to find Malik, an eleven-year-old Iraqi boy with secrets to guard. Sydney wants to help him. The Alpha wants him dead.

From the dark alleys of Mexico City to the mean streets of Denver, Sydney and her K9 partner, Clyde, use their wits and determination to chase down the ruthless killer. But when their path collides with his, Sydney realizes just how far-reaching and sinister the Alpha’s past is. And how far he’s willing to go to save his secrets.”

And you, what are you reading and what are looking forward to reading next?

    Oh, no! I hope the Luna book improves for you.

      I’m seriously thinking of DNFing it, as it’s taken me two nights just to read 165 pages. I don’t know what it is about the book, but I think it’s the author’s style of writing. It feels disjointed to me, and the characters are just not coming together for me.

    Wow! All the Devils Are Here sounds amazing. How fabulous that you’ve already had such an incredible read 🙂

      This has been, for me at least, one of the most amazing reads, especially in this series that has just gotten better with each book. If you get a chance to read the series, do. It’s amazing.
