This meme is hosted by Sam over at Taking on a World of Words. All you have to do is answer the following three questions in a post and then put a link to that post in the Comments over at Taking on a World of Words.
The questions are:
1. What are you currently reading?
2. What did you recently finish reading?
3. What do you think you’ll read next?
Currently Reading –
I started Six Four on Sunday. It’s a little over 630 pages so I think it will take me a few more days to get through. I’m almost halfway.
Anyway, so far there’s been a few things going on, an unsolved kidnapping, a cover up inside the police department, crap going on with the media, a cop’s daughter running away. And that’s all before I get halfway. I’ve no idea what’s coming next. But so far I’m liking it.
I received a copy of Six Four from Hachette New Zealand to review. The cover of my copy doesn’t look like this, I have an ARC which looks pretty cool, which I’ll be using for my review. That’s why I’m mentioning it here. Although I do like this cover too.
Recently Finished –
I read Radio Silence over the weekend and once I started I couldn’t put it down so it didn’t take me long to read it.
I’m going to be doing a full review of this on my blog so I don’t want to say too much here. But this book has a lot of diverse characters which I loved. There is also a friendship between the main character, Frances, and a boy that doesn’t turn into a relationship. Which I was really happy about.
I like reading books with diverse characters, I don’t think I read enough of them actually. But I’m glad I got the chance to read this.
I received a copy of Radio Silence from HarperCollins New Zealand to review.
Follow Me Back is another book I read over the weekend. This one I read in one sitting it was that good. It’s a a mix of contemporary and thriller and Nicci wrote the story in a way that it took me most of the book to figure out what happened, but I did. Eventually. Just before it was revealed but still.
Follow Me Back takes place after Aiden’s old friend Lizzie is reported missing and Aiden is questioned by the police. Which is the first time he hears Lizzie is missing.
What follows is a twisted story and you can’t trust anyone. Aiden’s life is turned upside down and will never be the same.
But that’s all I’m going to say. You’ll have to wait for my review to hear more, unless you pick up a copy 😉
I was sent a copy of Follow Me Back to review from Allen and Unwin New Zealand.
I have loved both Red Queen and Glass Sword when I read them so when I had the opportunity to review Cruel Crown I was really excited.
I’ll say here that I liked Queen Song more than I liked Steel Scars but you’ll have to wait for my review to know why 😉
If you didn’t already know, one story is about Coriane – Cal’s mother. The other is about Captain Farley. I don’t know if I like Farley which may be why I didn’t like her story as much as Coriane’s.
I received a copy of Cruel Crown from Hachette New Zealand to review.
I’m just going to put this out there now, Maestra was not what I was expecting at all. I probably should have researched it before I read it but it’s a bit late now.
I’m not saying it was bad, just a bit graphic in places for me. This is not for young readers. It has a lot of graphic sex scenes in it. And one, that I’m not mentioning here or in my review, that made me feel kind of sick…
I’ll be doing a full review on here soon, with the good and bad parts for me. Again, the story wasn’t bad but I’m just not into these kind of graphic scenes and if I’d known they were in there I probably wouldn’t have read it. Or requested it in the first place.
I received a copy of Maestra from Allen and Unwin New Zealand to review.
Reading Next –
I’m not going to put a photo here because I’m not sure if I’ll be reading Book of Lies by Teri Terry or Dreaming the Enemy by David Metzenthen. If you want to help me choose leave me a comment and pick a book 🙂
