Hello and welcome to another instalment of WWW Wednesday! It seems like these are the only things I’m writing on my blog at the moment and it feels like things are going a little slowly on the reading front. However, every time I write one, I’m reminded that, although some books remain on my Currently Reading list for a while, I’m still getting through books and really enjoying reading and listening to a variety of genres. Currently, I’m totally snowed under at work and working in the evenings most days (a habit I try to avoid). But, with only 16 days until the Christmas holidays, there is a (certainly not natural) light at the end of an exceeding long term and a very strange year.
Here’s a reminder about what this post is all about.
The 3 Ws
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
Unfollow by Megan Phelps Roper
If you’ve read any more of my WWW Wednesday posts, you’ll know Unfollow has been on my currently reading list for a few weeks and I’ve not made much progress with it through no fault of the books own, it’s more to do with other deadlines for blog tour reviews and eBook fatigue. HOWEVER! This month for book club we had the Wild Card theme where all our usual rules of page counts and fitting in a theme go out the window and we pick a suggestion out of a (digital) hat. And guess what was picked! We are meeting between Christmas and New Year to review and I think the discussion is going to be really interesting. I’m fascinated by extreme views and what pushes people to change opinions so I’m really excited to finally prioritise this book again.
Ghosts by Dolly Alderton
I read Everything I Know About Love this summer and really enjoyed it, so I was looking forward to seeing what her novel had in store. This is my current commute audio book and it’s read by Holliday Grainger, who plays Robin in the BBC Strike adaptation of the Robert Galbraith novels. I love her voice so it’s really engaging. I went in to this book blind, not knowing much about the plot. It’s not my usual genre as it is full of romance, but I’m enjoying it so far.
The Visitors by Martina Rijks
This is going to be the next book I review for a blog tour. The book is a psychological thriller about a holiday cottage whose visitors have a dark purpose. I’ve only started the first couple of pages last night before bed, but I’m really looking forward to it. Given the cover art, I’m expecting it to be quite gorey! My review will be going up on the 15th December, so come back and check it out if this sounds like something you’d be interested in.
Deadline by Geoff Major
I read this crime thriller for the Damp Pebbles blog tour and my review will be going live on Sunday 6th December. Spoilers: it was fab!
Then She Was Gone by Lisa Jewell
My previous commuting audiobook was really good. The novel follows a mother whose daughter went missing 10 years ago. I said in last week’s post that I thought I had guessed what was going on – and I had, almost! There were some good twisty bits and the narration was really enjoyable. While the books I’ve listened to so far by Lisa Jewell haven’t been, for me, 5 star reads, I will definitely been reading or listening to more of her work as I find it really easy to get in to and engaging! Perfect for a burnt out, overloaded brain like mine.
I feel like I repeat myself a lot here! But I’m still going to mood read. My next audiobook on reserve and available soon is Invisible Women by Caroline Criado Perez. I bought this non fiction book for my sister and kind of wish I’d kept it for myself. I’m really interested in feminism, so I think this one will really pack an intellectual punch for me.
So, that’s all for this week. Thanks to those of you who come along, read, like and comment. I’m glad that you are enjoying the content as I’m really enjoying reflecting on my reading each week. I think I’m going to try and think of some more different types of blog posts, so if there’s something you’d like to see, let me know!
