WWW Wednesday!

It’s W W W Wednesday! Hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words, here are my 3 Ws (Currently Reading, Just Finished Reading and Future Reading):

What I am currently reading:

Monty and the Monster by Rhonda Smiley (click for link to Goodreads)

Book Description From Goodreads:

“When seventh grader Monty Hyde moves for the fourth time in two years, it’s the same old story. New neighborhood, new school, new bullies, no friends. With his dad working all the time and his older brother too popular to notice, he’s the lonely outcast yet again. That is, until he finds a mysterious replication serum in his basement and decides to make a friend. From scratch.

But when his creation turns out to be a stinky, hairy eight-foot-tall monster that might be eating the neighborhood kids, Monty knows he must undo his experiment. STAT!

Problem is, it’s the best friend he’s ever had.”

I am on the Blog Tour for this book on 23 May so keep your eyes peeled for my review on here, Amazon, Goodreads, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter! I am only a couple of chapters in, but I am enjoying it so far!

Book Lovers by Emily Henry (click for link to Goodreads)

Book Description From Goodreads:

An insightful, delightful new novel from the number-one New York Times bestselling author of Beach Read and People We Meet on Vacation.

One summer. Two rivals. A plot twist they didn’t see coming….


Nora Stephens’ life is books – she’s read them all – and she is not that type of heroine. Not the plucky one, not the laidback dream girl, and especially not the sweetheart. In fact, the only people Nora is a heroine for are her clients, for whom she lands enormous deals as a cutthroat literary agent, and her beloved little sister Libby.

Which is why she agrees to go to Sunshine Falls, North Carolina for the month of August when Libby begs her for a sisters’ trip away – with visions of a small-town transformation for Nora, who she’s convinced needs to become the heroine in her own story. But instead of picnics in meadows, or run-ins with a handsome country doctor or bulging-forearmed bartender, Nora keeps bumping into Charlie Lastra, a bookish brooding editor from back in the city. It would be a meet-cute if not for the fact that they’ve met many times and it’s never been cute.

If Nora knows she’s not an ideal heroine, Charlie knows he’s nobody’s hero, but as they are thrown together again and again – in a series of coincidences no editor worth their salt would allow – what they discover might just unravel the carefully crafted stories they’ve written about themselves.”

I have only just started this and whilst it is a good book, I am not mad on it at the moment. We shall see how I feel once I am further in!

Melmoth by Sarah Perry (click for link to Goodreads)

Book Description From Goodreads:

“For centuries, the mysterious dark-robed figure has roamed the globe, searching for those whose complicity and cowardice have fed into the rapids of history’s darkest waters-and now, in Sarah Perry’s breathtaking follow-up to The Essex Serpent, it is heading in our direction.

It has been years since Helen Franklin left England. In Prague, working as a translator, she has found a home of sorts—or, at least, refuge. That changes when her friend Karel discovers a mysterious letter in the library, a strange confession and a curious warning that speaks of Melmoth the Witness, a dark legend found in obscure fairy tales and antique village lore. As such superstition has it, Melmoth travels through the ages, dooming those she persuades to join her to a damnation of timeless, itinerant solitude. To Helen it all seems the stuff of unenlightened fantasy.

But, unaware, as she wanders the cobblestone streets Helen is being watched. And then Karel disappears. . . .”

I have made a good start on this and I am not sure about it. I got a bit confused about the time period that it was set in and sometimes the way that it is written confuses me. We shall see once I am further in – maybe I just need to get used to the style of writing?

What I have finished reading:

Spring At Blueberry Bay by Holly Martin (click for my book review)

The Attic Child by Lola Jaye (click for my book review)

Twelve Days In May by Niamh Hargan (click for my book review)

What I am reading next:

A Most Private Bank by Andreas F Clenow (click for link to Goodreads)

Book Description From Goodreads:

““In this world, you either become a shark, or you become lunch.”
– Jim Dixon

A decade after Jim Dixon’s fall from grace, after the events that burnt his career on Wall Street, his past is catching up to him. Zurich had been the perfect place for a fresh start, a place where he could be a big fish in a small pond. The secretive world of Swiss high finance, a world of deception, greed, and excess, where everyone lies for one or another reason, provided the perfect cover. Until she showed up.

Meeting the socialite daughter of his former client was just a courtesy, nothing more. Another spoiled princess looking for VIP tickets to the opera, or a private shopping session at Louis Vuitton. So he thought. But Christina Rosenbaum was not the typical second generation heiress. This was the meeting that would set it all in motion.

Caught between unscrupulous bankers, hedge fund managers, organized crime, state actors, and law enforcement, Jim is left with no choice. One way or another, it will be over before the end of the week. This week would see careers destroyed, lives lost, and fortunes made.”

I am on the Blog Tour for this book on 30 May so keep your eyes peeled for my review on here, Amazon, Goodreads, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter!

      For me its a meh. So far maybe a 4/4.5 I don’t know. It will have to do something to make it a 5! I am not very far in though so I am still hopeful.

      Yes! It is a great book! I am excited for the next one – published in August here in the UK.

      You too 🙂

      Yes, I was quite excited to read it, but it hasn’t grabbed me yet. Usually books that are everywhere I agree that they are worth it. I am not sure about this one yet. There is nothing wrong with it, it just hasn’t blown me away!

    I know we’re not supposed to judge books by their covers, but A Most Private Bank has really outstanding cover art. I keep seeing Finlay Donovan everywhere. Do you think it’s the universe’s way of telling me to pick it up?
