Is it just me, or is this week going by a little too fast? With my release of Reaper: Aftermath on Friday, I’m definitely feeling the anxiety and pressure. I’m more stressed about finding time to practice my vlogging skills for the Facebook event, but I know I’ll end up doing a decent job.
All that aside, let’s get into 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?
Work at a funeral home can be mundane. Until you start accidentally bringing the dead back to life.
Cassie Black works at a funeral home. She’s used to all manner of dead bodies. What she’s not used to is them waking up. Which they seem to be doing on a disturbingly regular basis lately.
Just when Cassie believes she has the problem under control, the recently-deceased Busby Tenpenny insists he’s been murdered and claims Cassie might be responsible thanks to a wicked brand of magic she’s been exposed to. The only way for Cassie to get her life back to normal is to tame her magic and uncover Mr. Tenpenny’s true killer.
Simple right? Of course not. Because while Cassie works on getting her newly-acquired magic sorted, she’s blowing up kitchens, angering an entire magical community, and discovering her past is more closely tied to Busby Tenpenny than she could have ever imagined.
Opinion so far:
I’m right at 90% through and will definitely be finishing this read today. Overall I’m having a great time, though there are little things I’ve noticed that I don’t quite agree with. Keep your eyes peeled for the review! I’ll probably post sometime tomorrow.
Still traumatised by the events of Halloween in the tiny village of Basard, Vicky Murtagh has moved to the Irish city of Galway to forge a new life, but the ghosts of her past have followed her west.
Veterinarian, John Tighe, wants to find out why the city’s pets are viciously attacking their owners. As violence increases on the streets of Galway, he wonders if the conspiracy theories of the shut-in who lives in the apartment across from his might make sense.
The Better Living Program promises to revolutionise people’s lives, but Violet Casey is more interested in learning how to use its business model to become as successful as its creator. Could the company that has rejuvenated Galway also be responsible for its downfall?
Three people linked by a web of horror as their lives descend into 7 Weeks in Hell, to Hell or to Galway.
Overall this was a great continuation of Iseult Murphy’s series. I actually liked this more than the first one because the horror element really came through. The characters were three-dimensional, and the plot was captivating. Can’t ask for much more than that, and I highly recommend giving this one a go if you like horror.
Book Review: 7 Weeks in Hell
Next on my TBR:
Opinion so far:
Up next on the ole TBR is Starsight, the second book in the Skyward series by Brandon Sanderson. I enjoyed the first one, and this is the last available book to read in the series to date, so I figured I’d get as caught up as I possibly can. Hoping I enjoy it even more than the first book!
After that, I’ll be delving into my first read by D. Wallace Peach, Liars and Thieves. I have super high hopes for this one, but as always my continuation of this three-parter will depend on how much I love this first book. Sooo looking forward to the experience!
Last on the immediate TBR is Frank by Ece Gurler. I got this as a Christmas gift from my besties Stacy and Bryan. This is a middle grade scifi book, and hey, the kid on the cover is a ginger, so how can I not read it? I’m excited to see how this turns out!
Wish me luck on my reading journey, and best of luck on yours!
That’s a Wrap!

The covers for Starsight and Liars & Thieves makes me want to dive right in, they’re both so intriguing in different ways. Happy reading. Here’s my WWW https://wp.me/pcaKQr-1qh
So sorry for the late reply! WordPress keeps marking everyone as spam. What a headache! Yeah, Starsight was really great and I’m about to start Liars and Thieves either today or tomorrow, so I’ve got super high hopes.
Thanks for sharing your reads! Nice choices!
Hmmm….things you don’t agree with. You make it sound like I’ve written a political treatise 🤣😁😋 Can’t wait to see your thoughts!
Lol! I’m just trying not to give anything away, haha. Yeah, just ten percent left. The anticipation is killing me!
You read such a great variety of books. Of course, I’m on pins and needles. 🙂 Happy Reading.
Aw, thanks! Usually scifi and fantasy win out, but I try to keep it broad. Oh no, dont be! I’m sure I’ll love it!
Yes, this week is Zooming by! (“Zooming,” see what I did there? Heehee.) I haven’t read The Undead Mr. Tenpenny, so I’ll be looking forward to your review on that. Glad you liked 7 Weeks in Hell. I enjoyed it. Happy reading.:-)
Haha, cheesetastic, I love it!
I just finished Undead Mr Tenpenny, and while I wont speak at length just yet about it, I really enjoyed it! Tammie does it again!
Yeah, I actually liked the sequel better than the first one a little bit. We need more scary stories in the world!
Liars and Thieves! Loved the world-building, characters, and vivid descriptions. Guess you can say I enjoyed everything about it.
Thanks for putting your two cents in. It helps reinforce why I’m giving it a go. So hopeful for that one!
I have started The Dark Tower by Stephen King this week and I am so glad that it’s the final book in this series. I’ve also started Rilla of Ingleside by L.M. Montgomery and I Have Lost My Way by Gayle Forman. I’m not very far into any of them yet.
Ooo, I hope The Dark Tower is fun! There really are a ton of books in that series it seems, or maybe they’re just all really long.
Good luck with the others as well!
There are 8 including a novella and I think that was way too many books for this series. I really don’t understand the hype surrounding this series at all. I mean I’ve only hated one of the books that I’ve read and the rest of the have been 3-4 stars but I was over this series a long time ago lol.
Yeah, I don’t do well with long series. I always end up losing interest if it’s past 5 books. I don’t blame you at all! I crapped out at book 4 I believe.
Long series don’t bother me so long as they are good and hold my interest.
Fair point. The 6th Murderbot comes out soon and I’ll be doing that, and I rarely get past that point so it must be a good sign haha
