WWW Wednesday (June 5)


WWW Wednesday is run by Taking on a World of Words.
The Three Ws are:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

My current read or rather listen is I Know Who You Are by Alice Feeney, this book is truly a haunting tale and I’m struggling to find enough time to feed my addiction to it. The narration by Stephanie Racine is superb!

Aimee Sinclair: the actress everyone thinks they know but can’t remember where from.

Except me. I know exactly where you’re from, who you are, what you’ve done.

Your husband has gone missing and the police think you’re hiding something. You lie for a living, always pretending to be someone else. But that’s not new, is it?

Because I know you lied before. You’ve always lied. And the lies we tell ourselves are always the most dangerous…. Amazon

The last book I finished was Someone is Lying the latest psychological thriller by Jenny Blackhurst

It’s been a year since Erica Spencer died in a tragic accident at a party, and the community where she lived has moved on with their lives.
Everybody has secrets.
But someone thinks it wasn’t an accident. Someone thinks it was murder.
Some are worth killing for.
And when an anonymous podcast names six local suspects, shockwaves ripple through the neighbourhood. Before the podcast is over, the police will be opening more than one murder enquiry. Because someone is lying…
But who? NetGalley

Next I plan on reading a book by a favourite author of mine, Denise Mina. Her latest standalone novel Conviction was recently published on 16 May 2019.

It’s just a normal morning for Anna McDonald. Gym kits, packed lunches, getting everyone up and ready. Until she opens the front door to her best friend, Estelle. Anna turns to see her own husband at the top of the stairs, suitcase in hand. They’re leaving together and they’re taking Anna’s two daughters with them.

Left alone in the big, dark house, Anna can’t think, she can’t take it in. With her safe, predictable world shattered, she distracts herself with a story: a true-crime podcast. There’s a sunken yacht in the Mediterranean, multiple murders and a hint of power and corruption. Then Anna realises she knew one of the victims in another life. She is convinced she knows what happened. Her past, so carefully hidden until now, will no longer stay silent.

This is a murder she can’t ignore, and she throws herself into investigating the case. But little does she know, her past and present lives are about to collide, sending everything she has worked so hard to achieve into freefall. Amazon

So back in the familiar psychological thriller territory this week but nevertheless three very different tales to be told.

What are you reading this week?

Author:

A book lover who clearly has issues as obsessed with crime despite leading a respectable life

  1. I’m glad you’re enjoying I Know Who You Are as I’ve reserved it at the library and will be collecting it tomorrow. I loved her debut novel Sometimes I Lie – utterly compelling reading!

  2. Glad to see that Conviction is coming up on your list, Cleo. Denise Mina is such a talented writer; she never disappoints. And I keep hearing good things about I Know Who You Are. I’ll be especially interested in what you think of that one.

  3. I’ve been very tempted by Denise Mina’s latest book too, although I haven’t caved and bought it yet. I’ve only read Red Road by Mina and I wasn’t a big fan of it, although I suspect that’s because it was partway through the series and I’d missed some stuff.

    I Know Who You Are is a great story. Didn’t love it as much as her previous book but glad to hear you’re enjoying it.

    1. I agree that for some series starting mid-point just doesn’t work so well – I have enjoyed all her books and she is one of those authors who writes in a different style depending on the subject/sub genre.

      I didn’t actually read Alice Feeney’s first book but I will be getting it after I finish I Know Who You Are for sure.
