WWW Wednesday #25

Hello my fellow bookworms! I hope you are having a fantastic day! It is time for my weekly reading update, WWW Wednesday. WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On A World of Words.

The Three W’s are:

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

Let’s get started!

All covers are from Goodreads

What I Just Finished:

I finished The Bridge of Little Jeremy last night. It was a an okay story with good characters, but I thought it was a bit too long. My review should be up, hopefully, sometime later this week!

I also finished Keep You Close by Karen Cleveland and really liked it! The mystery was intense, and the conspiracy plot a lot bigger than what it originally seemed. My review should be up next Monday! (07/22)

Finally, I also finished Look For Me by Lisa Gardner. I loved the characters, the mystery kept me guessing, and the ending was neatly wrapped up. My review should be up, hopefully, by next Friday! (07/26)

What I’m Currently Reading:

I haven’t actually started reading Hell’s Corner by David Baldacci yet, but I plan on doing so later today.

I’ve gotten through the first chapter of Captive Witness and it’s hilarious because Nancy and the story are kind of old fashioned. Hopefully, I will still enjoy the mystery!

What I Plan To Read Next:

Next up, I want to read Hunting Prince Dracula by Kerri Maniscalco. Hopefully, I’ll have finished both of my current reads first, and caught up on my reviews before I start this!!

That’s it for this Wednesday. What are you reading? Have you read Hunting Prince Dracula? What did you think? Let’s chat in the comments below! (Be sure to link to your WWW’s so that I can check them out!)

Top Five Tuesday ~ K-L-M-N-O

It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve done a Top Ten Tuesday. However, this time, I’ve decided to try Top Five Tuesday! Top Five Tuesday was created and is hosted by Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm.

Today’s topic is: Books that start with the letters K, L, M, N, and O.

This is actually part of a series that started the first Tuesday in July, starting from A and it will continue to the last week of July and end with Z. However, I still wanted to join in.

Let’s get started!

K is for Keep You Close by Karen Cleveland

I read this last week, and it was an amazing, edge of your seat kind of thriller! I was a bit confused by the end and would have loved it to be wrapped up more neatly, but I still enjoyed it! I felt so much for Agent Maddox and for all the trouble and pain that she’s been through in life. Also because it’s an FBI book and I absolutely love FBI or CIA or MI5/MI6 or basically any intelligence/law enforcement organization centered book!


L is for Look For Me by Lisa Gardner

I read this over the weekend and loved D.D. and Flora!! The mystery was great and I loved D.D. and Flora’s relationship. It was also interesting to read about Flora’s vigilante work and her survival group, and to know what it’s like to be a survivor. I was also glas because the book was easy to read as a standalone, and this happened to be book nine… so I’m definitely going to go back, and start from book 1!


M is for My Lovely Wife by Samantha Downing

This was a great mystery, with a bit of an annoying narrator, but I still really enjoyed it at the end. The POV was new and unique and I loved watching the story unfold. It’s an amazing debut novel and I’m going to be on the lookout for whatever the author publishes next!!


N is for No Exit by Taylor Adams

I’ve been recommending this book to all my friends who I think would be able to stomach the gore and the pain that is in this book. Because besides that, it’s a great story, and it’s also kind of like a short movie in book format. The plot is quick, there’s a lot of action, pain, and it is the very definition of a thriller! So if you think you can handle a good amount of gruesomeness, please please do try this out!!!


O is for One of Us Is Lying by Karen M. McManus

When I first heard about this book, I said nah, I’ll pass. Fastforward a couple of years, to when I joined GR, and everyone was talking about the author’s second book. That seemed more interesting to me, so I read it first, really liked it, and then decided to just give this one a try.

I loved it. The plot was interesting, the characters were amazing (Nick and Maeve were my favorites! Nick and Bronwyn together were so cute!!!!), the ending shocked me even though I’m pretty sure I’d read a spoiler beforehand, but I was completely blown away! It was the second mystery book that I gave 5 stars too (the first one being The Fixer) and I definitely highly recommend it!

That’s it for this Tuesday! Have you read any of the books I mentioned above? Did you enjoy them? Who are some of your favorite authors? Let’s chat in the comments below!

WWW Wednesday #24

Hello!! How are you? I hope you are having a fantastic day! It is time for my weekly reading update, WWW Wednesday. WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On A World of Words.

The Three W’s are:

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

Let’s get started!

All covers are from Goodreads

What I Just Finished:

My latest read was Trust Me, I’m Lying by Mary Elizabeth Summer. This was predictable and a bit implausible. I also didn’t like Julep so this was a 2.75 star. Review will be up next Monday.

What I’m Currently Reading:

I’m 36% into The Bridge of Little Jeremy, which I’m reading for review. I was given a copy of this by Estelle, a friend of the author. So far, it’s okay. I’m getting bored, and just want to skip to the end to find out what happens so I’ve decided to take a quick break from it.

My hold for Keep You Close by Karen Cleveland came in two days ago. The summary is interesting and I plan on starting it today.

What I Plan To Read Next:

I went to the library yesterday!! And I only got 3 books lol. It’s been quite a while since I’ve been to the library and gotten real physical books so I’m kind of excited. I usually read e-books from the library.

I got Hell’s Corner by David Baldacci just because I had no idea what to get and I randomly pulled it off the shelf right before I left. Hopefully, I won’t be disappointed by this as I was with Long Road to Mercy.

I also randomly pulled Look For Me by Lisa Gardner off the shelf. It’s book 9 in the Detective D.D. Warren series, and I hope this can be read as a stand-alone.

Captive Witness by Carolyn Keene is the last book I got. I’m pretty sure I’ve read it, since I’ve read the ~30 other Nancy Drew books that my library has (and probably well over a 100 in my lifetime), but I snatched it anyway. I hope I still enjoy it!

That’s it for this Wednesday. What are you reading? Have you read any of the books I’m reading, just finished, or plan on reading soon? Do you know if Look For Me can be read as a standalone? Let’s chat in the comments below! (Be sure to link to your WWW’s so that I can check them out!)
