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:

Wild Air by Rebecca Mascull

I was thrilled when I was asked if I’d like to read and review this book for the blog tour as I love Rebecca Mascull’s writing. I started reading the book this week and I completely and utterly love it. My review will be on my blog on Monday so please look out for that then.

Radio Silence by Alice Oseman

I’ve had this book on my TBR for a little while now but I spotted it on my audio book subscription service this week and decided to make it my new listen. I’m enjoying it so far, it’s an easy listen. It’s not quite what I thought it was going to be but it’s a good read.

Dead Woman Walking by Sharon Bolton

I’m enjoying this book so much, it might even end up being my new favourite Sharon Bolton book (and that’s saying something as I LOVE all of her novels). I’m sure that had I not been having such a rough week I’d have read this in one sitting.

The Comfort of Others by Kay Langdale

This is such a beautiful book that I’m utterly adoring. I want to read it slowly to savour it but I’m sure it’s going to become a firm favourite of mine. I was lucky enough to get to interview Kay Langdale for the blog tour this week so you can read that here if you’d like to.

Titanic Lives by Richard Davenport-Hines

This is a really interesting book about the people who were involved in the design and building of Titanic through to the people onboard when it hit the iceberg. I knew a lot of the stories already but it’s still very moving to read about so many people who were caught up in the tragedy.

How to Survive a Plague by David France

I’ve not managed to read much of this book this week but I hope to get back to it very soon as I was finding it such a fascinating read.

 

What I recently finished reading:

He Said/She Said by Erin Kelly

I read the first third of this book in short bursts as and when I could but then I got so involved in the story at that point that I simply couldn’t put it down and read the rest in one sitting yesterday afternoon. I’ll be writing a review of this soon once I’ve got my thoughts in order but it’s definitely a book I recommend.

Luuurve is a Many Trousered Thing by Louise Rennison

I’m way older than the target audience for this book but I spotted the audio book on my subscription service this week and I was having such a bad day that it seemed like the perfect book to give my mood a lift. Georgia is one of those characters that can be so irritating and daft but you can’t help but love her.

No Turning Back by Tracy Buchanan

This is another book I found on audio in the last week and I enjoyed listening to it. It was one of those books that requires you to suspend disbelief a bit but it still a book that keeps you hooked.

What I plan on reading next:

Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman

I was thrilled to be sent an ARC of this book recently and can’t wait to read it. I hope to start it at some point over the next few days.

    • Dead Woman Walking is such a good read, I recommend it. I finished He Said/She Said this week and it was brilliant – a novel that really makes you think and is an enjoyable read at the same time. I hope you enjoy both books as much as I have if you decide to read them.

  1. As always a great array of books Hayley – I’m glad you found He Said/She Said as compelling as you seem to in the end – I’ll look out for your review. Isn’t the latest Sharon Bolton something else? A fantastic read!

  2. I have never read Sharon Bolton’s books but sounds like that needs to change. I hope you enjoy all your books this week. Hayley. Happy reading.

  3. Titanic Lives sounds really interesting! I do like exploring history. And I’m a fan of Sharon Bolton’s work, so happy you’re having the chance to read Dead Woman Walking. Looking forward to that one, myself.

  4. Your mention of Radio Silence reminded me I have a copy somewhere on my kindle; good to hear you are enjoying it. And like I said; I’m definitely going to pick up a Bolton book some time soon! Happy reading. 🙂

  5. I love these posts of yours you always have such an eclectic mix of books! I’ve just finished Hex by Thomas Olde Heuvelt which was an ARC I’ve had for over a year 😲 and I’m just starting Cry Wolf by Greta Stone which is one of my blog tour reads. 😊

    • Thanks so much, I appreciate you saying that.
      It’s good to get to a book that you’ve owned for a while, I hope you enjoyed it and that it was worth waiting for. I’ve not heard of Cry Wolf but I’ll look out for your post on your blog. 🙂

  6. What I’m listening to: Chilbury Ladies Choir. What I just finished: Love & Gelato (reviews next week). Current classics in progress: Les Miz and Kenilworth. What I’m starting Gray House (Online group read) and either What Alice Forgot or the Accidental Empress (or both). Current biography vol 3 of Blanche Weisen Cook’s Eleanor Roosevelt. And a couple others. I read like others watch tv. Some so read only once a week, others daily.

    • You have some really interesting-sounding books on the go at the moment. I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on your blog to find out more. I read What Alice Forgot a while ago now and remember really enjoying it so I hope you do too.
