WWW Wednesday (12 April)

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:

He Said/She Said by Erin Kelly

I only started reading this late last night but I can see it’s going to be one of those books that has me hooked. I already can’t wait to get back to it (and will be picking it up as soon as I have this post written and scheduled)!

This Love by Dani Atkins

I was sent this gorgeous paperback for review recently and am absolutely loving it. I keep thinking of the characters when I’m not reading it, which is always the sign of an amazing book.

How to Survive a Plague by David France

This is such an interesting book, I’m so glad I spotted it on the Wellcome prize and decided to buy it. It’s a long book so I’ll probably be reading it for quite a while but I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it already!

What I Talk about when I Talk about Running by Haruki Murakami

This is my current audiobook. It may seem a strange book for someone who can’t walk to want to listen to a book about running but I thought my struggles to walk a few steps might have something in common with training for a marathon. This book is so much for than I thought it was going to be and I think it will become one of those rare books that I listen to more than once. The thoughts and philosophy in this book are just wonderful.

 

 

What I recently finished reading:

The Cows by Dawn O’Porter

I loved this book, it’s absolutely brilliant and I highly recommend it. I’m actually on the blog tour for this book today so you should be able to see my review now.

The Power by Naomi Alderman

I finished this a couple of days ago and I’m still not sure how I feel about it. I enjoyed it but I’m not sure that I’d have managed to finish it if I’d not swapped from reading it to listening to it. I did receive a review copy of this so I will be attempting to review it as soon as I can.

Sweet Pea by C.J. Skuse

This book is so good, I loved it. I’m mid-way through writing my review now so I hope to get that posted soon. I can’t recommend the book highly enough though.

 

What I plan on reading next:

The three books below that I hope to read this week. I haven’t actually showed these books in a book haul yet so I will be writing more about these books in my Stacking the Shelves post on Saturday.

Gone by Min Kym

I was really pleased to get approved for this on NetGalley earlier this week as it sounds like a fascinating read. I’m very much looking forward to reading it.

 

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

I’ve heard so many great things about this book that I couldn’t resist treating myself at the weekend. I really want to get to read it this week

 

What are you reading at the moment? Have you finished any good books recently? Any books you’re looking forward to reading soon? Please feel free to join in with this meme and share your link below, or if you don’t have a blog please share in the comments below.

  1. I have been thinking about getting Sweet Pea. Now that you mention about loving it, I am even more intrigued. I look forward to your review. I have also seen the comments about Hate U Give. I hope it will be a good read for you. Happy reading.

  2. You’ve got some great reads going right now! And I’m very glad you liked The Cows as well as you did. I’m about to check out your review of that one right now. And very much looking forward to your review of Sweet Pea.

  3. As ever, an amazing spread of books and some fabulous reads in there. I loved your review of The Cows:). As for Gone by Min Kym – I heard an interview with her on Radio 4 and it was an amazing story – I hope you enjoy this one:).

  4. I haven’t seen that cover for He Said/She Said before. Its on my tbr but I’m not sure when I’ll get round to it. I just bought The Hate U Give today- I’ve read so many great reviews for it so I’m hoping I feel the same when I get round to it! I hope you enjoy it too! And I’ve wanted to read Murakami for a while. I was so close to buying Norwegian Wood today, but I already too many books in my hand! I feel like whenever I do get round to reading him, those books will be a treat.

    • I love this cover of He Said/She Said and am really enjoying reading the book. I hope to start The Hate U Give this weekend, I’ve heard only good things about it. I read Norwegian Wood a long while ago now and remember really enjoying it but I’ve not read much else by him so am trying to rectify that this year. He’s a brilliant writer.

  5. I will be looking forward to your thoughts on He Said She Said! I’ve heard great things about it. And I’m really hoping to pick up THUG some time soon as well. Happy reading!

  6. I’m a day late but I’ve decided you’ll forgive me.

    What are you currently reading? SERIOUS MONEY by Caryl Churchill (a super weird play that I haven’t quite figured out yet) and THE MAGICIAN OF VIENNA by Sergio Pitol (which is also confusing – I guess that’s my theme at the moment?)

    What did you recently finish reading? Yesterday I finished FOR A LITTLE WHILE by Rick Bass (a collection of short stories that was A+ amazing) and THE ATOMIC WEIGHT OF LOVE by Elizabeth J. Church.

    What do you think you’ll read next? Next up is AMERICAN HOUSEWIFE by Helen Ellis.

    • It’s fine to be late – I hope you’ll forgive me taking a couple of days to reply. 🙂
      I won a copy of The Atomic Weight of Love recently and it sounds really good – I hope you enjoy it. I love the sound of American Housewife, I want to get to that one soon too. I’ve not heard of the other books you mentioned but I’m going to look up For a Little While as that sounds interesting.
      Hope you enjoy all your books this week 🙂
