{WWW Wednesday} 10-31-18

W… W… W… Wednesday, hosted by Taking on a World of Worlds is a weekly meme showcasing what you just finished reading, what you are currently reading, and what you plan to start reading next. Except I’m changing it up a bit, since I can never plan what I’m reading next (moody reader). Instead I’m going to talk about a book I’ve recently added to my TBR that I’m excited about!

Happy Halloween! Today is one of my favorite days of the year. I decided to dress up as a crazy cat lady for work…I’m wearing cat leggings and cat ears and brought my Crazy Cat Lady coffee mug with me. 😀

I wasn’t even going to post today, because I didn’t think I got much read in the past week. But I actually didn’t have a bad reading week after all!

And I’m pretty happy that I read several books from my Halloween TBR this month. I usually make those lists and maybe only read one book, but this year I read 4 of the 9 books!


what i recently finished reading


I’m in the minority and didn’t love The Craftsman. I did enjoy it, but it felt slow to me in the middle, and I wasn’t dying to pick it up and read it.

I finished listening to this Kristan Higgins series and loved almost every book. Her books are great for audio – I’ve put one of her other series on my audio wish list.

I had low expectations for The Witch of Willow Hall after seeing some not-so-great reviews. And I’m really glad I tried it! There were some parts that made me crazy, but overall I really enjoyed the book. I listened to 80% of it on audio and then had to finish reading it on my Kindle last night, because I couldn’t go to bed without seeing how it ended.

The Last Time I Lied is giving me Friday the 13th vibes, and I’m really enjoying it.

I started the audio of I Liked My Life this morning, and I’m already loving it!


what i have recently added to my tbr

This one looks and sounds really good!



Years later and she still loves Frozen. 😀


Reading anything good this week?

    Love the crazy cat lady costume idea! 🙂 My older sister dressed up as a cat today for her work. She wore cat ears and painted her face like a cat, lol. I really want to read The Last Time I Lied! I think I’ll put that on my Halloween TBR for next year, happy to see you’re enjoying it.

      They’re the books in her Gideon’s Cove series. I have already read a few of them, so I’m going to do audio for the rest. Her books are great to listen to while I’m working.

    Happy Halloween! I’m really curious about The Last Time I Lied, and I’m actually picking her other story The Chalk Man soon… If I like that one, I’m adding The Hiding Place straight away. 😉 Have a wonderful week and happy reading!

    I’m sorry you didn’t enjoy The Craftsman more. What did you think of the witch angle? That’s where it really lost me. I couldn’t take the end seriously. I’m happy you enjoyed the Blue Heron series. It’s one of my go-to’s. And I just got approved for The Hiding Place on Netgalley and I’m looking forward to reading it. I was in the minority and didn’t love the author’s last book like everyone else did, but I did like her writing so I’m hoping I’ll enjoy this one more.

      The witch angle was weird. I couldn’t really take it seriously, either, and maybe that’s what ruined it for me? I don’t know. It got really slow in the middle and I had no desire to pick it back up every night. I hate that.
      I didn’t love Chalk Man, but it was good enough for me to try this one. I hope it’s good!

    Your costume sounds great! I just downloaded The Hiding Place and have started it. I loved The Chalk Man, so I think I’m going to like this one 🙂
