So here’s my 3 W’s for the week.
I was able to predict the twists in this book a few chapters ahead of the reveal which hindered me from enjoying this book as much as I thought I would. Lie to Me by Jess Ryder is about secrets, obsession, lies and betrayal. You can read my full review of the book here.
Last Breath by Robert Bryndza– The DCI Erika Foster series remains my favourite series to date. Each book keeps getting. I don’t know how Bryndza does it since he releases two to three books each year but he just keeps getting better. I loved this book so much that I sacrificed my sleep on a weekday and read it up to 2am in the morning. Today is the publication day for this book. My review will be up later on tonight.
One Perfect Lie by Lisa Scottoline
I just started reading this book yesterday. It started really strong and I do hope that it will remain the same to the end.

An Extraordinary Union by Alyssa Cole
I am slowly making my way through this one. The setting and characters are wonderful. I like the two MCs. However, the romance is heavier than I expected and this is my main issue with the book. I hope to finish reading it soon though.
