Happy Hump Day!
How’s your week going? Good I hope!
I’m just plodding along, trying to work on edits and reading as much as possible. Anywho, back to the post!
Every Wednesday I participate in a meme called WWW Wednesday.
This meme is a challenge where you simply share what you’re reading, what you’ve recently finished, and what you hope to read in the near future.
The meme is currently handled by Taking On A World of Words, and anybody can participate.
Simply read the 3 W questions below and answer them should you want to:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
It is autumn 1981 when the inconceivable comes to Blackeberg, a suburb in Sweden. The body of a teenage boy is found, emptied of blood, the murder rumored to be part of a ritual killing. Twelve-year-old Oskar is personally hoping that revenge has come at long last—revenge for the bullying he endures at school, day after day.
But the murder is not the most important thing on his mind. A new girl has moved in next door—a girl who has never seen a Rubik’s Cube before, but who can solve it at once. There is something wrong with her, though, something odd. And she only comes out at night….
Opinion so far:
I just started reading this yesterday, so I’m only just past 10% through. I am enjoying the story overall, but I will say that there was a small part including pedophilia that I did not enjoy. I understand what the author is going for, but would rather have had them just insinuate it without going there, you know? Other than that, this is a fun story. Who doesn’t love vampires?
Amanda and Josh think the old house they have just moved into is weird. Spooky. Possibly haunted. And the town of Dark Falls is pretty strange, too. — But their parents don’t believe them. You’ll get used to it, they say. Go out and make some new friends. — So Amanda and Josh do. But these creepy new friends are not exactly what their parents had in mind.
Because they want to be friends…
Opinion so far:
Man oh MAN did I enjoy this book! Not only was this extremely nostalgic for me, but also just as entertaining as I recall the series being. Spooks and mystery made this a great first Halloween read. Definitely worth a look!
Next on my TBR:
Opinion so far:
Up next are more great Halloween reads! I dug into my Kindle purchases and made sure I drew my reading choices from books I already own. Gotta knock down that personal TBR!
I’m very excited to read the Travis Liebert’s anthology The Anomaly Archives. I haven’t been disappointed by any of his works yet, and I can’t wait to give this a try!
After that is The Darkest Touch by Joseph Sale. Iseult Murphy recommended this to me, and this has evil X-Men written all over it. So psyched!
Last but certainly not least is The Girl Who Wasn’t There by Nick Clausen. This is another purchase recommendation I received from Iseult Murphy. I bought this a while back and it kind of got buried under all my Kindle downloads, but this is the perfect time to give it a read!
Wish me luck on my reading journeys, and best of luck to you as well!
That’s a Wrap!
Okay folks, that’s my WWW Wednesday for this week.
