WWW Wednesday July 3rd 2019

WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words.

The three W’s are:
What did you recently finish reading?
What are you currently reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

********************************************

Another week!  Another Month!  Hope you’ve all been enjoying the sunny weather.

I’ve been busy this last week and will be for the next few, so haven’t got all that much reading in.  Therefore this WWW Wed isn’t that much different from last week’s so apologise for that and may skip one or two for July and August as there doesn’t seem much point putting the same books down week after week. That would just be nonsense!

Any how, here is today’s WWW Wed!  Hope your all having a good week and have a fab weekend!

What have I recently finished reading?

The Whisper Network by Chandler Baker

the whisper network

Sloane, Ardie, Grace and Rosalita have worked in the same legal office for years. The sudden death of the firm’s CEO means their boss, Ames, will likely take over the entire company. Each of the women has a different relationship with Ames, who has always been surrounded by whispers about how he treats women. Those whispers have been ignored, swept under the rug, hidden away by those in charge.

But the world has changed, and the women are watching this latest promotion for Ames differently.

This time, they’ve decided enough is enough.

Sloane and her colleagues’ decision to take a stand sets in motion something catastrophic and unstoppable: lies will be uncovered, secrets will be exposed and not everyone will survive. All their lives – as women, colleagues, mothers, adversaries – will be changed for ever.

I quiet enjoyed this one.  The first half of the book I felt was mainly introducing you to the characters and more importantly their day to day lives, both at work and home. This build up then explains why what happens next, happened!  A book very much of for the current times.  The second half is pacier and an interesting read.  I posted my review for this yesterday so here is a link to that:  https://babbageandsweetcorn.wordpress.com/2019/07/01/the-whisper-network-by-chandler-baker

 

The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena

the couple nextdoor

You never know what’s happening on the other side of the wall.

Your neighbour told you that she didn’t want your six-month-old daughter at the dinner party. Nothing personal, she just couldn’t stand her crying.

Your husband said it would be fine. After all, you live only next door. You’ll have the baby monitor, and you’ll take it in turns to go back every half hour.

Your daughter was sleeping when you checked on her last. But now, as you race up the stairs in your deathly quiet house, your worst fears are realised. She’s gone.

You’ve never had to call the police before. But now they’re in your home, and who knows what they’ll find there.

What would you be capable of when pushed past your limit?

This one brings me up to date with all of Shari’s novels now.  I have to say it was probably the least favourite out of them all but still enjoyable.  Felt the twists at the end were all a little short and on top of each other making the ending a little jumbled and quick to finish.

What am I reading now?

I’m reading the second half of The Familiars for my book bloggers buddy read.  Fleetwood is a lovely character and now I am half way through I have really gotten into it and want to know what happens??

I’m also reading Death on the Ocean by Martha Fischer.

What am I reading next?

When I Lost You by Merilyn Davies   Blog tour 15th July

when i lost you

When a young couple are the lead suspects for the murder of their only child, Crime Analyst Carla Brown and DS Nell Jackson are assigned to investigate.

The evidence seems conclusive, but something just doesn’t feel right.

The case is quickly cast into doubt when the lead forensic pathologist starts receiving threatening letters – containing details only the police should know.

Who’s sending them? What do they want? And how did they get hold of the information?

As Carla and Nell dig deeper, it soon becomes clear that this case isn’t the first of its kind.

They must stop at nothing to find the truth – even if it hits close to home.

I’m on the blog tour for this one second week of July so will be reading this very soon.  I also need to catch up on some NetGalley advanced read copies.  The Au Pair by Emma Rous is calling me I think.
