Welcome to WWW Wednesday, a meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words in which you answer three simple questions about what we’re reading:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
What I am currently reading:
I picked up a copy of THE PHANTOM TREE by Nicola Cornick yesterday, only to discover that it’s book 2 (typical) in a series. But, what the hell, so far, it’s been an interesting read.
Browsing antiques shops in Wiltshire, Alison Bannister stumbles across a delicate old portrait—supposedly of Anne Boleyn. Except Alison knows better… The woman is Mary Seymour, the daughter of Katherine Parr who was taken to Wolf Hall in 1557 as an unwanted orphan and presumed dead after going missing as a child.
The painting is more than just a beautiful object from Alison’s past—it holds the key to her future, unlocking the mystery surrounding Mary’s disappearance, and the enigma of Alison’s son. But Alison’s quest soon takes a dark and foreboding turn, as a meeting place called the Phantom Tree harbours secrets in its shadows…
Now, doesn’t that sound intriguing to you?
What I just finished reading:
Well, actually, I haven’t just finished anything. Not of late, anyway, as many of you know, I hit a brick wall having tried to read both A LIFE TO KILL and FORTY WORDS FOR SORROW, and DNF’d both of them. Though, technically, I set both books aside in the hope I might pick them up at a later date to finish. We’ll see.
What I plan on reading next:
I’m hoping to read TWISTED by Steve Cavanagh—which is, I believe, a standalone from his earlier Eddie Flynn series—and either a book I’ll love because, well, it’s twisted, or hate. Depending on who’s read and reviewed it. So I’m not going in with any expectations other than I hope it’s as much fun to read as his other books.
BEFORE YOU READ THIS BOOK
I WANT YOU TO KNOW THREE THINGS:
1. The police are looking to charge me with murder.
2. No one knows who I am. Or how I did it.
3. If you think you’ve found me. I’m coming for you next.
After you’ve read this book, you’ll know: the truth is far more twisted…
Let’s hope TWISTED is as twisted as it sounds!
And you, what are you reading at the moment, anything gripping?
