HUMP DAY READING: A GREAT WEEK…

Today I’m participating in Sam’s WWW Wednesdays Here’s how it works:

 

The Three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next, and/or what are you eagerly awaiting?

***

CURRENTLY READING:

The Widower’s Wife (e-book), by Cate Holahan, is “One of those rare thrillers that really will keep you reading all night.”
Kirkus starred review

EAGERLY ANTICIPATING:

I just discovered a book coming out on July 25 from a new favorite author of thrillers:  The Lying Game, by Ruth Ware…

 

 

Blurb:  On a cool June morning, a woman is walking her dog in the idyllic coastal village of Salten along a tidal estuary known as the Reach. Before she can stop him, the dog charges into the water to retrieve what first appears to be a wayward stick, but to her horror, turns out to be something much more sinister…

The next morning, three women in and around London—Fatima, Thea, and Isabel—receive the text they had always hoped would NEVER come, from the fourth in their formerly inseparable clique, Kate, that says only, “I need you.”

The four girls were best friends at Salten, a second rate boarding school set near the cliffs of the English Channel. Each different in their own way, the four became inseparable and were notorious for playing the Lying Game, telling lies at every turn to both fellow boarders and faculty, with varying states of serious and flippant nature that were disturbing enough to ensure that everyone steered clear of them. The myriad and complicated rules of the game are strict: no lying to each other—ever. Bail on the lie when it becomes clear it is about to be found out. But their little game had consequences, and the girls were all expelled in their final year of school under mysterious circumstances surrounding the death of the school’s eccentric art teacher, Ambrose (who also happens to be Kate’s father).

Atmospheric, twisty, and with just the right amount of chill that will keep you wrong-footed—which has now become Ruth Ware’s signature style—The Lying Game is sure to be her next big bestseller. Another unputdownable thriller from the Agatha Christie of our time.

So…that was my rather fascinating week of great reading.  What was yours like?

  1. I do not read enough thrillers! Kind of crazy, because I like to watch a lot of thriller type movies/TV shows; so you would think I would pick up more thriller books! The books that you’ve been reading look interesting. The Lying Game sounds really good too!

    1. Thanks, Ashley, and I love my thrillers…although I do have to mix in some different kinds of books, just to cleanse my soul a bit…LOL.

      I am looking forward to The Lying Game…I discovered this author’s books recently, and loved both of the ones I read.

      Enjoy your week!

  2. Ooh lots of interesting reads! I’m looking to Ruth Ware’s upcoming book too even though I wasn’t as wowed by The Woman in Cabin 10. My reading week has not been that great just because I haven’t had a lot of time to read but I’m already looking forward to the weekend to catch up.
