HUMP DAY POTPOURRI: CURRENT, PAST, & FUTURE READING…

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 Wife (e-book), by Alafair Burke: This much-anticipated follow-up to Burke’s Edgar-nominated The Ex asks how far a wife will go to protect the man she loves: Will she stand by his side, even if he drags her down with him?

 

I also started reading Fates & Furies, by Lauren Groff, but I DNFed it at 40%.  Sadly.  I just didn’t like any of the characters.

EAGERLY ANTICIPATING:

Bring Me Back (e-book), by B. A. Paris – Release Date:  June 19, 2018

THE NEW TWISTY, GRIPPING READ FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES AND USA TODAY BESTSELLING NOVELS BEHIND CLOSED DOORS AND THE BREAKDOWN

“We’re in a new Golden Age of suspense writing now, because of amazing books like Bring Me Back, and I for one am loving it.” —Lee Child

A young British couple are driving through France on vacation when they stop at a service station. He runs in to use the restroom, she stays in the car. When he returns, her car door has been left open, but she’s not inside. No one ever sees her again.

Ten years later he’s engaged to be married; he’s happy, and his past is only a tiny part of his life now. Until he comes home from work one day and finds his new fiancée sitting on their sofa turning something over in her fingers, holding it up to the light. Something that would have no worth to anyone else, something only he and she would know about, because his wife-to-be is the sister of his missing first love.

As more and more questions are raised, their relationship becomes strained. Has his first love somehow come back to him after all this time? Or is the person who took her playing games with his mind?

So…that was my week.  How did yours unfold?

    1. I hadn’t read anything by this author on her own until I read The Ex. Before that, I had read a series of books she co-wrote with Mary Higgins Clark, so I knew I would enjoy this book as well as The Ex.

      Thanks for stopping by, Sue, and enjoy your reading.

    1. Thanks for visiting, PhiliB…I love the expression “recovering English teacher.” LOL

      My rules about DNF vary, from 50 pages to 100 or more. I will give a book a little more if I really wanted to like it…and then I give up if I can’t make the book resonate in any way.

      BTW…I am a “recovering Social worker.”
