Happy Wednesday! If you’re unfamiliar with WWW Wednesday, it’s a weekly blog meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words. The three W’s are simple:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
I am more than halfway through my ARC of By Any Other Name by Lauren Kate. This is mostly cute although I was a little annoyed by a bit of the setup. We’ll see if the end can focus on the cute part.
I finished two books this week.
First, I was in the mood and finally finished my reread of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I love this series and will continue to reread it when I need an easy book to pick up. I haven’t reached for the second one yet but I’m sure I will soon.
Then I finished my ARC of Bright Ruined Things by Samantha Cohoe. This book just didn’t work for me but I know there are people that will like it (and are already liking it on Goodreads). I found the plot slow, the fantasy elements underwhelming and the main character annoying. I gave it 2 stars and you can see my full review here.
I have two more ARCs with March 1st publication dates. I think I’ll pick up Tell Me an Ending by Jo Harkin next since the other is a contemporary and I’ll just be finishing a contemporary romance, I prefer to mix my genres. So this one is a dystopian and sounds promising, here’s the blurb:
Dystopian debut about a tech company that deletes unwanted memories, the consequences for those forced to contend with what they tried to forget, and the dissenting doctor who seeks to protect her patients from further harm.
What if you once had a painful memory removed? And what if you were offered the chance to get it back?
Tell Me an Ending follows four characters grappling with the question of what to remember—and what they hoped to forget forever.
Finn, an Irish architect living in the Arizona desert, begins to suspect his charming wife of having an affair.
Mei, a troubled grad school drop-out in Kuala Lumpur, wonders why she remembers a city she’s never visited.
William, a former police inspector in England, struggles with PTSD, the breakdown of his marriage, and his own secret family history.
Oscar, a handsome young man with almost no memories at all, travels the world in a constant state of fear.
Into these characters lives comes Noor, an emotionally closed-off psychologist at the memory removal clinic in London, who begins to suspect her glamorous boss Louise of serious wrongdoing.
