WWW Wednesday – 24th March

I’ve been absolutely awful at doing these on a regular basis! Things have just been a bit crazy and overwhelming so I’ve not focussed on blogging as much as I have previously.

Nonetheless, it’s been quite a productive couple of weeks reading wise, so let’s get on with the post!

The 3 Ws

  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you’ll read next?

    Currently Reading

    1984 by George Orwell

    1984 features on my 21 ebooks for 2021. I started reading it at the weekend but I don’t think I was concentrating enough on it really so I’ve got myself a bit confused!

    American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis

    I started this book last year but put it down because it was quite dense and didn’t grab me initially. Also, the font is absolutely tiny! I’ve picked it up again for the trope-ical readthon prompt of enemies to loves/previous DNF. I’m hoping now I’m giving it some time I will enjoy it!

    Recently Read

    The Good Immigrant

    I read this for the multiple authors prompt for the trope-ical readathon. It is a collection of essays from BAME writers, journalists, comedians, activists, from all walks of life about life in Britain. A very interesting read. Review coming very soon.

    Too Much and Never Enough by Mary L Trump PhD

    I listed to this memoir read by the author and her analysis of Trumps upbringing and how this has affected his personality was fascinating. There were a few sections that weren’t as captivating, but overall I enjoyed it!

    The Beekeeper of Aleppo by Christy Lefteri.

    Wow. Here’s the review.

    Manipulated Lives by H A Leuschel

    Manipulated Lives is a collection of short stories about narcissists. You can read my review here.

    Then She Vanishes by Claire Douglas

    Another audiobook that I listened to for the trope-ical readathon, this time for the blast from the past prompt. Jess is a journalist who is investigating a double shooting, committed by her childhood best friend, Heather. But is anything as it seems? This was a good psychological thriller.

    Regeneration by Pat Barker

    I first read Regeneration for my AS level English Literature and its depiction of the horrors of WWI and the psychological effects on the soldiers is absolutely heart-breaking. The book features the poets Siegfried Sassoon and Wilfred Owen, whose was poetry I also really enjoyed studying.

    The Midnight Library by Matt Haig

    I’ve seen so much about The Midnight Library and it is this month’s pick for my book club as the theme was “books about books”. I was a bit worried it wouldn’t live up to the hype, but I thought it really did. I was beautiful.

    All The Little Things by Sarah Lawton

    I tend to read quite a few psychological thrillers and recently most have been good but I haven’t thought them anything special. But this grabbed me, chewed me and spat me back out again. The characters were absolutely brilliant. Look out for my review coming on the 1st April!

    Next Reads

    Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng

    This book has been on the TBR for so long so I think I’m going to read it for the small town prompt for the trope-ical readathon. There’s only a week left – will I complete all the prompts?!

    That’s all for this (actually, the last two) weeks. I’m pretty pleased with my progress!

    What have you read recently?

    TTFN!

    1. So glad you like The Midnight Library! I have that on my list to read next month and I’ve been a bit worried about it being so hyped as well. Fingers crossed ill like it! I wasn’t keen on 1984 when I read it so I hope you are getting along with it 🙂
