A Haven for Book Lovers

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

WWW Wednesday #April 10th

WWW Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by 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?

What I Finished Reading:



I read two different but very interesting books,  The Girl in the Painting by Renita D’ Silva and My Lovely Wife by Samantha Downing. I really loved The Girl in the Painting. It’s a poignant story about three women set in two time periods, in the 1920s and the 2000s. My review will be up on Saturday as part of the blog tour. My Lovely Wife is so dark but also so so entertaining. I almost feel guilty for enjoying it so much. Almost!


What I’m reading now:

i want you gone

I just started reading I Want You Gone by Miranda Rijsk and I am captivated so far. The premise is kinda spooky. Imagine waking up to find R.I.P messages on your facebook page and a notice of your death in the dailies. That is the nightmare that our MC finds herself in. Can’t wait to see how this one unfolds.


What I’ll probably read next/soon:

I am not very certain about what I’ll read next but it will probably be one of these three titles:


If you’ve read any of these, help me pick. Which one should I start with?

So that’s it, what are you reading this week? Share your link in the comments below so that I can come and take a look!

Happy Reading!

    The Girl in the Painting sounds like my kind of book although I’m always a bit wary of dual timeline books because for me it’s how the author handles the modern day story. Frequently I’m more drawn to the story set in the past.

      We are the same. I always find myself enjoying the past timeline more than the modern day narration. In this one, both are important but I liked the 1920s more 😀

      Thanks for visiting and for the link Cathy.

    I love the cover of My Lovely Wife. Your comment about feeling guilty for enjoying it so much made me go look it up and I discovered one of my goodreads friends has given it a glowing five star review… so two good words for it means it’s definitely going on my TBR.

    Here’s my WWW.

    The Girl in the Painting sounds interesting! Glad you liked it. I Want You Gone sounds fantastic, too, and super creepy (which I’ve been in the mood for lately). Might have to see if my library has that one!

    Here’s my WWW Wednesday post.

      The Girl in the Painting is wonderful. Renita has some really nice titles, most of her stories are set in India. Definitely do check out one of her titles if you ever get the chance.

      Thanks so much for visiting my blog 🙂

      Oh I remember Adultery, read it some years back. I didn’t like it as much. I hope your next reads will be much better.
