Hi friends, Happy Wednesday! Can’t believe we’re halfway through another week, when I feel like I barely finished the last one. I don’t know what it is with the concept of time the last year or so, but it feels like everything goes at a fast forward pace. Maybe it’s aliens?!
Something I want to start doing is a themed post on Wednesdays, so here we go!
What Are You Reading Wednesday?!?!
Here’s what I’m currently reading, including my current progress and thoughts so far (spoiler free of course)!
Ok, so The Troop by Nick Cutter is a horror novel. It’s set on a remote island just off shore of a small coastal town. There is a troop of boy scouts who are having their yearly survival trip, and a strange man shows up. This man looks like he hasn’t eaten in years, and seems to be ill but with what, Scoutmaster Tim isn’t so sure. And then military ships show up, but no one comes ashore.
I am about 50% through The Troop and really enjoying it so far! It’s had some gross parts, some slow burn terror, and has a great cast of incredibly well written characters. I’m buddy reading this with my friend Chaz (@chazreadshorror on Instagram or TikTok if you’re there- give him a follow!). We’re having a blast with this buddy read, which is the first of many we have planned!
My next read is Ascension by Nicholas Binge, it is a Sci-fi novel and this copy is an Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) as the book releases April 25, 2023. I got this ARC from my local bookstore in town, Another Chapter Books. I’m about 50 pages in, and so far I am very intrigued. I decided to go into this one with minimal knowledge for the best reading experience. All I can tell you is it’s a story about this physicist who disappeared during a scientific research trip, and was later found in a psychiatric hospital after the family presumed him dead years prior. The story follows the letters he wrote to his niece on this research project, about the discovery of this mountain that randomly appears in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. I’ll share more about it once I’ve finished.
Book #3 of my current reads is Her Soul to Take by Harley Laroux, which is a dark romantic horror novel. This is a reread for me, but it’s one of my favorites! It’s super spicy, has a dark ancient cult who worships “The God Below”, and ancient eldritch creatures who hunt the night. This is another buddy read with my friends Chaz, Shannon, Diana, Gigi, Cristy, Kelly, and Noels! Basically Chaz and the #SlasherQueens from instagram haha. We’re having a blast reading this spicy, scary book. I love getting to share in everyone’s reactions as they get to some of my favorite parts of the book.
And for the final book I am currently reading, drum roll please…. (Parrruummm). The Nemesis Touch by F.R. Jameson. This is a Supernatural Police Thriller, where the serial killer they are hunting kills with just a touch, which essentially “marks” the victim to die a very gruesome and horrible death. I’m about 20% into this one, and so far it’s a fun read. It has a bit of a feel of a modern Sherlock Holmes type mystery, with a paranormal twist. A big thank you to author F.R. Jameson for reaching out to offer an arc in exchange for an honest review! I’m so excited to share my final thoughts once I finish.
Well, that’s it for my current reads, stay tuned for reviews to come! What are you currently reading? I’d love to know, in case I need to add it to my never ending TBR! Hope you all have a great rest of your week.
Positive Vibes & Happy Reading!!
