HUMP DAY READING: SLOGGING ALONG…

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?

***

This week has been one in which I have picked up first one book, and then another, not settling on any one book for any length of time.  So…I am still reading a couple of books after setting aside some others.  What Happened, by Hillary Rodham Clinton, is a book I grab for a few chapters and then set aside in favor of fiction, like In Her Bones, by Kate Moretti.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

FINISHED SINCE LAST WEEK-(Title/Cover Linked to My Review):

I finished only one book since last week:  A Spark of Light, by Jodi Picoult, a page turner that held me hostage throughout.

EAGERLY ANTICIPATING:

I pre-ordered Verity, by Colleen Hoover, which will be released on December 18, 2018.

Synopsis:  “Sublimely creepy with a true Hoover pulse. I’ve been waiting on a thriller like this for years.” Tarryn Fisher, NYT bestselling author.

Lowen Ashleigh is a struggling writer on the brink of financial ruin when she accepts the job offer of a lifetime. Jeremy Crawford, husband of bestselling author Verity Crawford, has hired Lowen to complete the remaining books in a successful series his injured wife is unable to finish.

Lowen arrives at the Crawford home, ready to sort through years of Verity’s notes and outlines, hoping to find enough material to get her started. What Lowen doesn’t expect to uncover in the chaotic office is an unfinished autobiography Verity likely didn’t intended for anyone to read. Page after page of bone-chilling admissions, including Verity’s recollection of the night their family was forever altered. 

Lowen decides to keep the manuscript hidden from Jeremy, knowing its contents would devastate the already grieving father. But as Lowen’s feelings for Jeremy begin to intensify, she recognizes all the ways she could benefit if he were to read his wife’s words. After all, no matter how devoted Jeremy is to his injured wife, a truth this horrifying would make it impossible for him to continue to love her.

A standalone romantic thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover, releasing December 18th.

  1. One of my friends has been posting a lot about the new Jodi Picoult book on Instagram. She is loving it, too. I’ve never actually read anything by Picoult, though I know everyone says good things.

    Here’s my WWW for the week.

    • Thanks for visiting, Sarah, and I’ve read most of Picoult’s other books, and there are several favorites. Nineteen Minutes is another intense story of a gunman holding hostages; Vanishing Acts is a tale of a father kidnapping his daughter and changing their identities; My Sister’s Keeper focuses on a family that has another child to help save an older child who is ill.

      A variety of controversial themes are her trademark. Enjoy!

      • Thank you so much for the insights into Picoult books. I think I didn’t read her, because My Sister’s Keeper didn’t seem intriguing to me, but Nineteen Minutes and Vanishing Acts sound intense in a way that I might enjoy.
