WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. It’s open for anyone to join in and is a great way to share what you’ve been reading! All you have to do is answer three questions and share a link to your blog in the comments section of Sam’s blog.
The three Ws are:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
A similar meme is run by Lipsyy Lost and Found where bloggers share This Week in Books #TWiB.
What I’m reading now:
The Trophy Child by Paula Daly
I’ve read and loved Paula Daly’s previous novels so was excited to get approved to read this one on NetGalley. I started reading it last night and am hooked, I can’t wait to read more.
Now We Are 40 by Tiffanie Darke
This book is so good! I’m not quite 40 but this is my generation and the book is bringing back so many memories. I highly recommend this to anyone who is a generation X-er!
The Cutaway by Christina Kovac
I was sent this for review recently and was excited to read it when I saw it was blurbed as being like ‘Gone Girl meets The Newsroom’. I’ve only read a few chapters so far and it’s a slow-burn book but it hooked me from the first chapter and I’m really keen to see what happened.
Goodbye Days by Jeff Zentner
I started reading this last week and it wasn’t quite what I’d thought it was going to be so I put it to one side. I picked it up again earlier this week though and it has drawn me in. The descriptions of grief and loss are really heartbreaking at times as it’s believable and real, so this is definitely a book I will be continuing with.
A Portrait of Bowie by Brian Hiatt
I picked this up last week after we went to see the Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars concert from 1973 at the cinema. It’s a lovely book filled with great photos and short essays about Bowie by people who knew him. It’s one I’m dipping in and out of at the moment and I’m really enjoying it.
Year of No Clutter by Eve Schaub
I really want to get back into this book as I love books about clutter but, for some reason, it’s not grabbing my attention as much as I want it to. I think I’m going to give it another chance and if it still doesn’t grab me I may put it to one side and come back to it another time.
One of Us by Asne Seierstad
I’m still reading this as and when I feel up to it – it’s heavier non-fiction and with not being too well off and on at the moment I do struggle to take everything in. It’s a fascinating book though and I will keep picking it up when I feel up to it.
Not Dead Yet by Phil Collins
This is the audio book I’m listening to with my husband so we’re listening as and when we have time. We’re both really enjoying it but I’m finding myself getting annoyed with the way Collins seems to have very little consideration for the way he treats some of the women in his life. He’s either not wanted to be open in his book, or he has managed to convince himself that he did nothing wrong. I’d still recommend the book though.
What I recently finished reading:
Little Deaths by Emma Flint
I picked this up to read the first chapter whilst deciding what to read next and I just couldn’t put the book down. I ended up reading the whole novel in two sittings and was riveted. It’s a review book so I hope to have my review up soon.
And the Sun Shines Now by Adrian Tempany
This was a really interesting look at football from the late 80s to the present day. If I’m to be honest a couple of chapters fell a little flat for me but on the whole this was a really good read and I’d recommend it to all football fans.
The Best We Could Do by Thi Bui
This is a graphic memoir, and it was a heart-rending read. I only started reading graphic novels last year and it still amazes me how much emotion can be packed into a book with so few words. I’ll be reviewing this on my blog as soon as I can but it is one I’ll definitely be recommending.
The Last Act of Hattie Hoffman by Mindy Mejia
This book was a brilliant read. It had me engrossed from very first chapter all the way through. I’m on the blog tour for this novel so my review will be up tomorrow as part of that.
Days Without End by Sebastian Barry
I feel sure that this book will make my top books of this year – it’s a beautiful novel that I know will stay with me for a long time to come.
Sometimes I Lie by Alice Feeney
I read this book in one sitting – I just couldn’t put it down! I read an ARC so will be reviewing this as soon as I can. It’s a book not to be missed though.
What I plan on reading next:
The Cows by Dawn O’Porter
I’ve read and loved Dawn O’Porter’s previous novels so was really excited to see that she had another coming out soon. I can’t wait to start reading this and feel sure I’ll love it as much as the others.
A Dangerous Crossing by Rachel Rhys
I was also thrilled to get approved to read this on NetGalley and I’m so keen to start reading once I’ve finished one of my current books.

I hope that you will enjoy Trophy Child more than I did. Sometimes I lie sounds interesting. Looking forward to your review. Enjoy your books this week. Happy reading.
I just finished The Trophy Child and I enjoyed it but I don’t think it was as good as her previous books. Hope you’re having a good week too 🙂
I just finished ‘A Walk In The Woods’ by Bill Bryson and it was great fun! His books are definitely my guilty pleasure.
I’ve got that on my TBR and am looking forward to it. I love Bill Bryson’s books too. 🙂
Enjoy A Dangerous Crossing Hayley and look out for me 😏 I am hoping to get to Little Deaths later this month!
I will definitely be looking out for you in A Dangerous Crossing! 🙂 Little Deaths was such a good read, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
Oh I like the sound of Now We Are 40, Hubs just hit it and I only have a few years, it is looming! 🤤
It’s such a great read – really brings back memories. I keep reading bits out to my husband who’s a few years older than me. It’s fun to reminisce. 🙂
I can’t understand how you can read so many books at once, that’s crazy! I struggle with more than one. Looks like you’ve got some really good books coming up too, can’t wait to hear what you think 🙂
I’ve always read lots of books at once so it’s just normal to me – I like to always be in the middle of a variety of books because then I’m always in the mood to read at least one of them. I’m excited to read all the books I’ve got coming up soon. 🙂
Sometime I Lie is brilliant isn’t it? Totally agree with you that everyone needs to read. I’ve spotted the Cows in a few places and it has made me curious. I haven’t read any of the authors other books though so wasn’t sure.
I’m still thinking about Sometimes I Lie – it was so good! I hope to start The Cows this weekend. Her previous two novels were YA but I think this new one is for adults so I’m interested to see how it compares.
So many interesting titles! The cutaway is a new discovery for me.. looks really good ! Can’t wait for your review!
I hadn’t heard of The Cutaway until I was offered a copy for review but I’m really enjoying reading it. I hope to have chance to finish it over the weekend and to get my review up soon after.
Some really excellent books there – I’m currently reading Little Deaths and it’s quite harrowing but so well described. Hmmm, I’m a Generation X-er – sounds like I might have to seek out that book!
You do have some excellent books, there! As always, they’re so varied and diverse, too – impressive. I’ll be especially interested in what you think of the Daly when you’ve finished it.
So many tempting books! I loved The Trophy Child and enjoyed Little Deaths. I’m curious about the Gen-X book, as all four of my grown children are in that “generation.” We used to laugh about recent Thanksgivings, with no children’s table, but we had a Gen-X one.
A Dangerous Crossing and Sometimes I Lie are books I am curious about. Thanks for sharing, and here’s MY WWW POST
I’m glad The Cutaway has you hooked, it would be a shame for the story to be a letdown after such a promising blurb. Happy reading!
I’m really looking forward to Paula Daly’s new book. I love her writing.
I have The Cutaway as well and curious to see if it lives up to its blurb. I’m waiting on Days without End from the library and based on what you said I can’t wait for it to come in, it sounds so good:)
Days Without End is such a beautiful and moving book. I had very high hopes for it and it exceeded them. I hope your library gets it in soon and that you enjoy it as much as I did.
Day Without End and Little Deaths are both on my wishlist – glad to hear you enjoyed them both. You’ve been busy!
Days Without End is such a beautiful novel, it’s one of those that really stays with you after you finish reading. Little Deaths was excellent too.
Can’t wait to read them!
I marvel at how many books you are reading at a time! I only have my book and an audiobook going at a time. Happy reading!
