WWW Wednesday -11th November

I’ve seen so many WWW Wednesday posts on Twitter and blogs recently that I’ve been inspired to do my own this week! I’m currently participating in the Clear Ur Shit readthon to get through some of my backlog but I must admit the temptation of library books, ARCs and cheap Kindle books have been leading me astray… I’d like to keep this as a regular thing but I’m a bit erratic about posting so we shall have to see!

The three W’s:

  1. What are you currently reading?
  2. What did you recently finish reading?
  3. What do you think you’ll read next?

Currently Reading

The Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman

I’m currently listening to this mystery by British comedian Richard Osman. I’m a couple hours in and I must say I love it. The characters are so tonge-in-cheek hilarious. The novel follows a group of retired amateur sleuths trying to solve a real life murder!

The Wrong Sort To Die by Paula Harman

I’m reading this historical mystery novel about a female pathologist, Margaret Demeray set in 1910s London for the blog tour that I will be posting a review for next week. I’m half way through and it’s great – I love the feminist twist and I think it will keep me guessing until the very end!

Unfollow by Megan Phelps Roper

After having watched all of Louis Theroux’s documentaries about the Westboro Baptist Church, I was eager to read Megan’s autobiography about her life in and since leaving the fundamentalist church. I’m not very far in as it’s been put a bit on the back burner while I finish my ARC but I’m looking forward to picking it back up again.

El espejo se rajo de parte a parte (The Mirror Cracked From Side to Side) by Agatha Christie

I have had this on my shelf for almost 6 years since I bought it in Spain on my year abroad. As I’m now teaching Spanish, I wanted to brush up on my subject knowledge. I’m struggling a little bit as the vocabulary is very complicated so it might be a bit of a struggle to get through!

Recently Read

The Five: The Untold Lives of the Women Killed by Jack The Ripper by Hallie Rubenhold

I love listening to audiobooks on my commute and this one was so fascinating. Rubenhold weaves together narratives based on extensive research about the five women murdered by the infamous Jack The Ripper. We all know his name, but nothing about them. The book offers an insight into the lives of these women in the East End and discusses issues such as workers rights, substance abuse, social class and prostitution. It was fab!

The Cabin At The End of the World by Paul Tremblay

After having read A Head Full of Ghosts by the same author, I thought this seemed like an interesting choice of audiobook. The premise of a group strangers turning up to a cabin and forcing the occupants to choose one of themselves to sacrifice in order to save the world from an impending apocalypse drew me in. However, I did feel it was a bit flat but I think a lot of that was down to the narration which, for me, was too robotic. It also left me with quite a few unanswered questions.

Next Reads

Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

For the next 2 months, I’m participating in the Clear Ur Shit readthon to thin out my physical TBR and I have this down for intimidating book. I find classics a bit intimidating as I’m always worried I’ll miss the point of them. This has been on my shelf since March and I have it on loan from my library at school until December so it needs to be read!

So there you have it, my first WWW Wednesday! I hope your enjoyed it. I’d love to hear your comments about any of these books and more!
