WWW Wednesday green

Hosted by Miz B at Should be Reading
To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…
• What are you currently reading?
• What did you recently finish reading?
• What do you think you’ll read next?

I am currently reading The Murder of Harriet Krohn by Karin Fossum which is written from the unusual perspective of the murderer.

The Murder of Harriet Krohn

I have recently finished reading Elizabeth Is Missing by Emma Healey narrated by dementia sufferer Maud who is trying to solve the mystery of two women spanning seventy years.

My Review of Elizabeth Is Missing

 

Next I am planning on reading Now That You’re Gone by Julie Corbin.  This author first came to my attention with her debut psychological suspense novel, Tell Me No Secrets.

Now That You're Gone

Blurb

When the body of Isla’s brother, an ex-Marine and private investigator, is pulled from the River Clyde, she is convinced he was murdered. When the coroner declares Dougie’s died of accidental drowning and rules out foul play, the police are happy to close the case. But Isla has other ideas.
Determined to find out what really happened the night Dougie died, and why he was even in Glasgow, she starts looking into his unsolved cases. What she finds will put her in grave danger and force her to question everything she thought she knew about those closest to her . . . Amazon

  1. These sound like three great reads and will all be going on my TBR list. I am currently reading Burial Rites by Hannah Kent. Prior to that I read Echo Boy by Matt Haig and I’m not sure what I’ll choose next 🙂

    1. Burial Rites has got a place on my holiday reading list which is no mean feat when it is fighting against the other 80 books on my TBR… I’m determined to get around to it after owning a copy for so long and really wanting to read it.

  2. Look forward to hearing your thoughts on Karin Fossum. It starts off a bit slow, the Harriet Krohn one, but it is a very interesting perspective – Karin Fossum is a very thoughtful, subtle writer, I thought.
    I’ve just finished ‘The Yellow Eyes of Crocodiles’ – I suppose it could be called women’s fiction, but it was more soap opera than anything – a waste of time (except it was full of colloquial French, so may have been useful for learning the language). I’m now reading Dan Smith’s very atmospheric The Darkest Heart (set in rural Brazil) and I think my next may well be ‘The Bone Seeker’, the 2nd in the Arctic series by M. J. McGrath. (talk about change of climate)

    1. You always find such amazing books and I do like the title of The Yellow Eyes of Crocodiles although I’m guessing it isn’t up to much! I have to admit I was beginning to wonder what I’d chosen at the beginning of the Karin Fossum but then it went up a gear and I fell into it. I’m very nearly at the end and completely understand what you mean by subtle writer.

  3. Totally loving the sound of a book written from the murderer’s perspective. I’m sure I’ve read a few like that, but I can’t think of them for the life of me right now!

  4. Hi Cleo,

    All three of your books and authors this week, are new to me and all three are welcome new additions to my future reading list.

    I have very eclectic reading tastes and will try most genres (generally as a part of my increased amount of review requests), however murder / mystery and suspense / thriller, will always be my most favoured genres and I love receiving new recommendations.

    Thank you for sharing,

    Yvonne
