WWW Wednesday: April 11th, 2018

WWW Wednesdays

This meme is hosted by Sam at 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?

To join in on WWW Wednesday, just answer these three questions and post the link to your responses on Sam’s blog and in the comments below.


I am currently reading:

Vanishing Acts by Jodi Picoult

GoodReads Synopsis:

Delia Hopkins has led a charmed life. Raised in rural New Hampshire by her widowed father, Andrew, she now has a young daughter, a handsome fiance, and her own search-and-rescue bloodhound, which she uses to find missing persons. But as Delia plans her wedding, she is plagued by flashbacks of a life she can’t recall. And then a policeman knocks on her door, revealing a secret that changes the world as she knows it.” In shock and confusion, Delia must sift through the truth – even when it jeopardizes her life and the lives of those she loves. What happens when you learn you are not who you thought you were? When the people you’ve loved and trusted suddenly change before your eyes? When getting your deepest wish means giving up what you’ve always taken for granted? Vanishing Acts explores how life – as we know it – might not turn out the way we imagined; how doing the right thing could mean doing the wrong thing; how the memory we thought had vanished could return as a threat.

Jodi Picoult is one of my top favorite authors, so when I came across this book at a used book sale and realized it is one of her books I haven’t read yet, it was a no-brainer to pick it up. It has been really good so far!


I just finished reading:

Baby Teeth by Zoje Stage

GoodReads Synopsis:

Sweetness can be deceptive.

Meet Hanna.

She’s the sweet-but-silent angel in the adoring eyes of her Daddy. He’s the only person who understands her, and all Hanna wants is to live happily ever after with him. But Mommy stands in her way, and she’ll try any trick she can think of to get rid of her. Ideally for good.

Meet Suzette.

She loves her daughter, really, but after years of expulsions and strained home schooling, her precarious health and sanity are weakening day by day. As Hanna’s tricks become increasingly sophisticated, and Suzette’s husband remains blind to the failing family dynamics, Suzette starts to fear that there’s something seriously wrong, and that maybe home isn’t the best place for their baby girl after all.

This is an ARC I received from NetGalley and man, what a creepy and unsettling book! Especially for the mother of a little 7-year-old girl, like me. I’m still working on putting together a review, but it should be posted soon.


What I’m reading next:

Cove by Cynan Jones

32313099

GoodReads Synopsis:

Out at sea, in a sudden storm, a man is struck by lightning. When he wakes, injured and adrift on a kayak, his memory of who he is and how he came to be there is all but shattered. Now he must pit himself against the pain and rely on his instincts to get back to shore, and to the woman he dimly senses waiting for his return.

This is a small, thin book, only 120 pages long, but it has an interesting premise and the reviews on GoodReads are absolutely glowing. I won a hardcover copy in a recent GoodReads giveaway and it came in the mail yesterday, so now I’m excited to crack it open and see if it’s as good as it sounds!


That’s all for my WWW Wednesday for this week. What have YOU read this week?

    1. I had a hard time sleeping after reading it. And I have a 7-year-old daughter myself, which really didn’t help lol. But it was a good book.

      I really enjoyed Vanishing Acts. It’s not my favorite Jodi Picoult book, but it was still really good.
