I’m taking part in the weekly meme hosted by Sam over at Taking on a World of Words
You just have to answer 3 simple questions
What are you currently reading?
I’m currently about two thirds of the way through The Roanoke Girls by Amy Engel.
A gripping, provocative thriller about the twisted secrets families keep, perfect for fans of The Girls. Beautiful. Rich. Mysterious. Everyone wants to be a Roanoke girl. But you won’t when you know the truth. Lane Roanoke is fifteen when she comes to live with her grandparents and fireball cousin at the Roanoke family’s rural estate following the suicide of her mother. Over one long, hot summer, Lane experiences the benefits of being one of the rich and beautiful Roanoke girls. But what she doesn’t know is being a Roanoke girl carries a terrible legacy: either the girls run, or they die. For there is darkness at the heart of Roanoke, and when Lane discovers its insidious pull, she must make her choice…
I listed this as what I thought I’d read next last week but it took me until yesterday morning on my commute to really start it, this evening I got in from work, curled up and read a little over half the book and completely forgot about everything else, including the fact I needed to make dinner lol. It’s a bit twisted but so far not quite as obviously dark as I was expecting.
What did you recently finish reading?
My last read was Lessons in Falling by Diana Gallagher – I’ve seen some mixed reviews but personally I found it a good read – Some issues probably could have been dealt in a little more depth. I’ll be writing up my review this week.
What do you think you’ll read next?
Still have some NetGalley books to read, I’m trying to read more YA, I’ve had some great recommendations since joining in the SundayYA chats on twitter, so I’ll probably try and get through a bit of a mixture of YA, general fiction and thrillers this weekend. I’m thinking How To Mend A Broken Heart by Anna Mansell, The Inconceivable Life Of Quinn by Marianna Baer and Everything But The Truth by Gillian McAllister
