WWW Wednesday – 6th January

I can’t work out if it feels like an age since last Wednesday or not! It’s the first Wednesday of 2021 and my first back at work this year. It’s shaping up to be an unusual year again, but at least there are books!

Here’s a reminder of what this post is about:

The 3 Ws

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

This meme is hosted by Taking On A World Of Books.

Currently Reading

Genesis by Karin Slaughter

I love books by Karin Slaughter – she writes consistently exceptional crime fiction. This is the third book in the Will Trent series (I’ve so far read 1, 2 and 8 as well as a couple of her stand-alones) and it’s shaping up to be really exciting. I’m not far into it, but so far a woman has been found brutally tortured and hit by a car and I’m sure there’s more bodies to come.

Forgotton Lives

When a man is murdered on his doorstep and a symbol is left by the body, DCI Stirling thinks it might be gang related. Until bodies turn up all around the country with the same emblem… I am reading this book ready for a Damp Pebbles Blog Tour later this month so watch this space. I’m not far into it at all but I’m most excited about this book because the author is an ex-SIO in the police so I’m expecting it to be an accurate reflection of policing.

The Flat Share by Beth O’Leary

When Tiffy is desperate for somewhere cheap to live after she breaks up with her boyfriend, she stumbles upon an advert for an unconventional flat share. Leon has the flat, but he works nights, so is looking for someone who will only be there between 6pm and 9am. I’ve seen so many people raving about this book so I thought it was high time I gave it a go to see what all the fuss is about. This is my current audiobook pick and I must say I’m really intrigued by what will happen to the relationship between the main characters.

Recently Read

Invisible Women by Caroline Criado Perez

I finally finished my audiobook! Invisible Women seeks to expose the data biases against women in modern society. It was absolutely fascinating to listen to, although, as it was very well researched and back up with studies, it was sometimes a little dense. Really interesting nonetheless!

Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince by J. K. Rowling

This book needs no introduction. It’s been my nostalgia comfort audiobook over the holidays.

The Stand by Stephen King

I was determined to finish this before the year was out and I FINISHED IT ON NEW YEARS EVE! I thought this post-apocalyptic door stop was phenomenal, although maybe a little slow in parts. I really like King’s writing and I can’t wait to read more by him. It was worth the over 1400 pages!

Poppy Flowers At The Front by Jon Wilkins

My review for the blog tour with Damp Pebbles will be going live on the 16th January. This novel is about two women, Poppy and Elodie who are nurses on the Western Front. There is a f/f love story and really good descriptions of the horrors of war, but I wasn’t very blown over by the plot unfortunately.

Next Reads

I have no idea what I will read next as I suspect my current 3 reads will keep me occupied for a while!

I’ve created a list of 21 book and ebooks I want to read this year so I’m going to pick something off there which takes my fancy!

Leave me a link to your WWW in the comments, or, if you don’t have a blog, just tell me what you are/ have been/ will be reading!

TTFN!
