WWW Wednesday: April 10, 2019

IMG_1384-0

I’ve been looking for more consistent weekly posts to do (Top Ten Tuesday and Top 5 Wednesday more often than not have prompts that don’t really inspire me – though I do still like reading the posts of others that participate in them) and several blogs I follow do WWW Wednesday, hosted by Taking on a World of Words. When I first started blogging I had my only little feature called Monday Minutes that basically accomplished the same thing, but instead of bringing that back, I’m going to go with this WWW Wednesday.

I started Keep Her Safe by K.A. Tucker last week, but because I was also pretty sick last week I haven’t gotten very far in it. I’m also trying to decide if I want to finish it or not. I like the main male character, but the main female character is rubbing me the wrong way so far. I’ve also become distracted by other books.

I just got Before She Knew Him by Peter Swanson from the library and am enjoying it so far. I’ve seen lots of favorable reviews on it, so my hopes are pretty high.

What did you recently finish reading?

Defy Me (Shatter Me #5) by Tahereh Mafi. The Shatter Me series is one of those series I loved when I first read them and then it doesn’t really hold up when I go back and revisit them. However, when the author announced 3 more books in the series (that was originally a trilogy), I knew I’d read them anyways. I absolutely hated the 4th book in the series, but thought this one was much better. I am super annoyed that it kind of makes everything from the original 3 books obsolete, but at least something happened in this book besides relationship drama, so I’m ok with it.

What do you think you’ll read next?

I’m not sure yet, but I think I need to get back to my NetGalley books and might go with How Not to Die Alone by Richard Roper.

  1. I have wanted to read Keep Her Safe. I’m sorry it’s not giving you what you need. I hope it gets better for you if you go back to it. It looks like you have plenty of other books that are working better for you. I still can’t believe you’ve read the Shatter Me books and I haven’t. LOL.

    • I think it’s just because I was sick when I started Keep Her Safe that I’m not going to go back to it before it expired from the library. I’ll try it again someday, though. Shatter Me was one of the first ebooks I ever bought! I’m not really sure whether I would recommend it to you or not. I used to love it, but now it’s a little iffy. You would probably like the romance, though. And Warner is still one of my favorite ever characters.

  2. I’m happy you’re doing these posts!! This is pretty much the only post I do these days. 🙂
    I have been wanting to read Keep Her Safe – now I’m wondering if it’s worth it. I have that new Peter Swanson book on audio hold. I probably won’t get it for a few months, and hopefully the audio is good.

    • I know I’m not going to finish Keep Her Safe before it goes back to the library, but I will probably try it again sometime instead of marking it DNF. I think a big part of it is that I was sick when I started it and just my headspace at the time. The Swanson book was pretty good, but the ending ended up being a little underwhelming for me.

    • Swanson has some pretty addictive writing. I enjoy his books, but I don’t like them quite as much as a lot of people seem to. I’ve only read one other KA Tucker book recently and it made me want to read more of her.
