A Haven for Book Lovers

I am just a girl who loves reading and talking about books

WWW Wednesday #September 13th

This meme is currently hosted by Sam @ Taking on a world of words. To take part all you need to do is answer the following questions:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you’ll read next?

So here’s my 3 W’s for the week.

Recently Finished

I had a good reading week. I read a thriller and a historical fiction and enjoyed both.

The Girl Who Came Back by Kerry Wilkinson is a character-led psychological thriller. You can read my review here.

The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah is historical fiction set in Paris during the WWII. A wonderful, beautiful but totally heartbreaking book. My review will be up tomorrow.

Currently Reading

The Surrogate

The Surrogate by Louise Jensen

I am halfway through this book and loving it so far. It is so unsettling. I know something bad is about to happen especially after reading the prologue. Now I am just waiting for the when and how. This is an addictive read that I can’t wait to see how it goes.

Reading Next

If the Creek Don’t Rise by Leah Weiss – I have read mixed reviews for this one. I can’t wait to see how it goes. 

creekIn a North Carolina mountain town filled with moonshine and rotten husbands, Sadie Blue is only the latest girl to face a dead-end future at the mercy of a dangerous drunk. She’s been married to Roy Tupkin for fifteen days, and she knows now that she should have listened to the folks who said he was trouble. But when a stranger sweeps in and knocks the world off-kilter for everyone in town, Sadie begins to think there might be more to life than being Roy’s wife.

As stark and magnificent as Appalachia itself, If the Creek Don’t Rise is a bold and beautifully layered debut about a dusty, desperate town finding the inner strength it needs to outrun its demons. The folks of Baines Creek will take you deep into the mountains with heart, honesty, and homegrown grit.

 

The Obsession by Nora Roberts

ObsessionNaomi Bowes lost her innocence the night she followed her father into the woods. In freeing the girl trapped in the root cellar, Naomi revealed the horrible extent of her father’s crimes and made him infamous. No matter how close she gets to happiness, she can’t outrun the sins of Thomas David Bowes.

Now a successful photographer living under the name Naomi Carson, she has found a place that calls to her, a rambling old house in need of repair, thousands of miles away from everything she’s ever known. Naomi wants to embrace the solitude, but the kindly residents of Sunrise Cove keep forcing her to open up—especially the determined Xander Keaton.

Naomi can feel her defenses failing, and knows that the connection her new life offers is something she’s always secretly craved. But the sins of her father can become an obsession, and, as she’s learned time and again, her past is never more than a nightmare away.

I haven’t read any books by Nora Roberts in quite a long time. The Obsession was released in 2016 and has received a lot of good reviews although there are some not so good ones on goodreads. I have read the first chapter already and it does start off as a fast, addictive read. I can’t wait to read the entire book.

So, what are you reading? Let me know in the comments section.

Happy Reading!

    Ah so nice to hear you loved The Nightingale too.. It’s still on my readlist but I expect to completely love it as well! I think I’ve read only one Nora Roberts novel and it was slow so it’s great to hear that this one kicks off as a fast and addictive read. Happy reading this week!

        I read her books a while back too! What would take me back to reading her books would be a book club read.
