Missing Presumed By Susie Stenier

Black Widow by Chris Brookmyre

Currently Reading

edieWatching Eddie by Camilla Way

Beautiful, creative, a little wild… Edie was the kind of girl who immediately caused a stir when she walked into your life. And she had dreams back then—but it didn’t take long for her to learn that things don’t always turn out the way you want them to.

Now, at thirty-three, Edie is working as a waitress, pregnant and alone. And when she becomes overwhelmed by the needs of her new baby and sinks into a bleak despair, she thinks that there’s no one to turn to…

But someone’s been watching Edie, waiting for the chance to prove once again what a perfect friend she can be. It’s no coincidence that Heather shows up on Edie’s doorstep, just when Edie needs her the most. So much has passed between them—so much envy, longing, and betrayal. And Edie’s about to learn a new lesson: those who have hurt us deeply—or who we have hurt—never let us go, not entirely…

I am almost done with this book. It is not what I expected although its an interesting read nonetheless.

Reading Next

I don’t intend to read any other book soon after the one that I am currently reading. My end of semester exams will be starting soon so I am just going to focus on academic reading/revision until after September 6th. This means that I will not participate in the next 2 or 3 WWW Wednesday features also. Good news is that this is my final semester at uni attending classes and taking exams. I will start my Masters Thesis next semester and embark on off-campus research for a year.

So how about you, any interesting books that you have read lately? What are you reading now? What do you plan on reading next? Feel free to leave your WWW links in the comments section.

    This is the first time I’ve heard of any of these, but Watching Edie seems interesting and more than a little frightening because of the cover. Good luck with your revision! I also want to focus on school but can’t give up books completely, haha.

      haha I know what you mean. Its only that with the exams my schedule forces me to give up on my books completely for the time being. Watching Edie is dark though not too scary.

      Thanks for stopping by. Happy reading 🙂

    Oh, that dreaded exam period. I am not looking forward to reliving this soon! I hope everything goes well. Remember to take care of yourself during that time! 🙂 I’m enjoying the rest of the holidays by reading and blogging as much as possible because I’ll be so busy when uni starts again that I won’t have time to read as much.
    I’m curious about Watching Eddie but I can’t decide if I want to read it.
    Good luck with the exams!

    Best of luck with your end of semester exams. It’s always hard to balance reading for pleasure when there’s studying to get done! Hope everything goes well for you 🙂
    And how exciting! May I ask what your pursuing for your Masters?

    I like the sound of Missing Presumed. I prefer police procedurals and mysteries to dark thrillers – I find them less stressful! 🙂
    The best of luck with your revision and exams and I hope you can squeeze a bit of reading for fun in there somewhere.
    Thanks for visiting my WWW post (https://clairehuston.wordpress.com/2016/08/17/www-wednesday-17th-august-2016/) and happy reading (and good luck again!).
