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 Honeymoon by Tina Seskis
I started this book yesterday and it’s so good, I just want to sit and read all day long. Unfortunately, I can’t but I will be reading in every spare second I have today!
The Zero by Jess Walters
I found this book on my Kindle recently but I couldn’t remember buying it so I looked the synopsis up and it sounded interesting. I started reading it this week and I’m hooked. It’s based around the 9/11 terrorist attacks but it’s told through the viewpoint of a police officer who is losing chunks of time and becoming increasingly confused, so it’s all out of order and strange. It’s a great read so far though and I’d recommend it.
Fragile Lives by Stephen Westaby
I was sent this book for review a couple of months ago and am finally reading it. It’s a brilliant memoir of a heart surgeon – his writing about the surgeries he’s been involved with are incredible.
How to Survive a Plague by David France
This is an outstanding book about the AIDS crisis. It’s a look at the doctors and scientists trying to figure out what this disease was, it looks at some of the people affected by AIDS and it’s such a powerful and moving read.
What I recently finished reading:
Fairytale Interrupted by RoseMarie Terenzio
This is the memoir of John F. Kennedy Jr’s assistant and is an interesting read. It’s much more about RoseMarie but it’s fascinating to learn more about John and his wife, Carolyn. I also enjoyed reading about the setting up and launching of George magazine.
The Comfort of Others by Kay Langdale
This book is wonderful, I’ve been completely enthralled with these characters and I didn’t want to come to the end of their story. I’ll be reviewing this on my blog soon.
The Way Back Home by Freya North
I found this on my Kindle the other day when I was re-organising it and decided to start reading right away. I really enjoyed this book, it’s not my favourite of Freya North’s book but it was a good read. I do love how characters from Freya North’s previous novels pop up in later books, and in this one it was Cat and Django so I did love finding out how they were both doing.
The Elephant in the Room by Jon Ronson
This is a very short book, just 52 pages long, about the run-up to the 2016 American Presidential election. It focuses on two or three people that are believed to have held a lot of influence with Donald Trump, and it makes for an interesting read.
My Dear I Wanted to Tell You by Louisa Young
I found this on my Kindle too – shockingly it’d been on there since 2012! I’m annoyed that I didn’t pick it up until this week as once I started reading I absolutely fell in love with the story. It had me hooked all the way through and I immediately wanted to read the second book in the trilogy.
The Heroes’ Welcome by Louisa Young
This is the second book in the above series and I read it straight after the first book. I enjoyed this novel but it because it starts immediately where the first book finishes it feels like one book in my head. That’s not a bad thing though. I’m not looking forward to reading the third book and plan to get to that very soon.
Dead Woman Walking by Sharon Bolton
This book is brilliant, I think it may even be my new favourite Sharon Bolton novel. I’m trying to get my review written at the moment so hopefully I’ll get that posted on here very soon.
What I plan on reading next:
Missing, Presumed by Susie Steiner
I’ve had this book on my TBR since it was first published and I’ve still not got around to reading it. I know that the next book in the series is coming out very soon so I’m keen to catch up.

I really enjoyed Missing, Presumed….and I’m eager to get my hands on Fairytale Interrupted. I also love the look of The Comfort of Others.
Thanks for sharing, and here’s MY WWW POST
I’m looking forward to Missing, Presumed – even more so now I know you enjoyed it. I hope you get to read Fairytale Interrupted – it’s an interesting read. I’ll go read your post now 🙂
Loving that you are clearing your TBR – I really enjoyed Missing Presumed and I want to read My Dear I Wanted to Tell You
It’s been lovely to look through the books I’ve had the longest and finally get to read them. I’m looking forward to Missing, Presumed – I feel sure I’m going to love it.
Everyone seems to be talking about The Honeymoon at the moment I look forward to your review.
It does seem to be very popular at the moment. I loved the author’s first novel so have been really looking forward to reading this one. It’s very good so far – I wish I could just sit and read all afternoon as I don’t want to have to put it down.
Is it okay that I want all of your current reads? Haha! I particularly love The Honeymoon’s cover! I’ve been thinking about getting Missing, Presumed when I heard another book was coming!
Happy reading my dear! xxx
Haha! All of them are really good so you couldn’t go wrong in getting any (or all!) of them. The Honeymoon is so good, I’m begrudging real life getting in the way of my reading. Thank you 🙂 xx
I’m currently reading a most wonderful book, “The Noise of Time” by Julian Barnes – an exceptional book!
I have this book on my wish list as I’ve read and enjoyed other novels by Julian Barnes. I think I might have to treat myself to it soon now you’ve said just how exceptional it is. I hope you continue to enjoy it.
How nice to still find unexpected gems on your Kindle ;-). I particularly like the sound of The Honeymoon, look forward to hearing more about this one!
I know, it was a lovely surprise to find some great books that I’d forgotten about. The Honeymoon is so good, I’m reading it now and finding it very hard to put down.
There are so many interesting reads in your post this week! I want to add them all to my TBR. I have a tendency to neglect non-fiction, but How To Survive A Plague and Fragile Lives sound poignant and interesting.
Both of those books are incredible reads, I highly recommend them. I started trying to read more non-fiction last year and enjoyed it so much I’ve continued this year.
There seem to be so many great non-fiction books being published at the moment too!
Wow SO many amazing books this week! I want to read them all haha. I think you’ll love Missing Presumed – I did anyway! Here’s my WWW post: https://snazzybooks.com/2017/05/10/www-wednesday-10-may-2017/ 🙂
Haha, I can recommend all of them 😉 I’m really looking forward to reading Missing, Presumed – I feel sure that I’m going to love it. 🙂
I did think it was a great read! Enjoy x
You have such a great variety of reads, Hayley. I’ve heard a lot about Missing Presumed, and I would like to read that one. I’m so glad you’ve been enjoying the rest, too.
I’ve heard such good things about Missing, Presumed so I’m really looking forward to reading it. Thank you, it’s been a good week of reading 🙂
I am intrigued by Missing Presumed. Here is my post
Missing, Presumed sounds good, doesn’t it? Thanks for leaving your link – I’ll read and comment later 🙂
I’ve read “When Dimple Met Rishi” today, by Sandhya Menon, a really nicely done romantic YA book about a pair of late teens at a coding conference in the US, both Indian-American but with differing views on family values. Really enjoyed it and I’ll look out for more by this author (this was via NetGalley).
I’ve read a couple of reviews of this book recently so I think I might try and get hold of a copy. I’m glad you enjoyed it so much.
Intrigued by The Honeymoon, which I ALMOST requested on Netgalley today. I’m trying t be good though, so I didn’t in the end. I may regret it!
Missing, Presumed is great – I hope you enjoy it.
My This Week in Books post can be found here: https://josbookblog.co.uk/2017/05/10/this-week-in-books-10-05-17/
The Honeymoon is so good, I wish I could shut the world out for the day and just read. I recommend it. I’m trying to stay away from NG at the moment too, there are so many tempting books and I’m trying to catch up before I request more.
Missing, Presumed will be my next read so I’m looking forward to it. 🙂
Now I really want to request it! 😂 Must. Show. Restraint.
Ha! Request it – it’s such a gripping, fast read that you’ll have read it before you know it. 😉
I am impressed with the number of books you are currently reading. It is very rarely you will find me starting one book before finishing the last. I don’t know how you cope with having four books on the go!
I’m not big on reading memoirs or other non-fiction, but you have some great fiction titles that I want to get my hands on – ‘The Way Back Home’, ‘Dead Woman Walking’ and ‘Missing Presumed’, which seems to have been hugely popular with other bloggers as well as yourself.
Great post, thanks for sharing 🙂
I’ve always had multiple books on the go at once so it’s just normal to me. I like to be in the middle of lots of books so that I’m always in the mood to be reading at least one of them.
Dead Woman Walking was a brilliant read, and I enjoyed The Way Back Home. It wasn’t my favourite Freya North book but it was still a good read. I hope to start Missing, Presumed today or tomorrow so I’m looking forward to that.
Thank you 🙂
I am looking forward to When Dimple Met Rishi! 🙂 I hope you enjoy your reading this week.
Still waiting for my copy of Dead Woman Walking. I don’t know how much longer I can hold on! 😂
Oh no, I really hope it arrives soon. It’ll be such a huge treat when you get to read it though that it will have been worth the wait.
It’d better be! 😄
I don’t think I’ve heard of any of these before, but they sound really good and I’ll have to check some out! 🙂
Here’s my WWW this week
Thank you 🙂 I’m going to go read and comment on your post now.
Fragile Lives sounds amazing and just like the sort of non-fiction book I’d like to read. Tempted by The Honeymoon too
Fragile Lives is such a fascinating read. I’ve been enthralled in the stories of the surgeries the author’s performed. I highly recommend it. The Honeymoon is fab – I’m begrudging real life for getting in the way of my reading today as I just want to find out what’s going to happen. 🙂
My goodness, it’s been a great reading week for you so far. As ever, an impressive range and interesting selection of books.
I’ve loved finding some of the older books on my TBR this week and it’s made for some extra variety in my reading which I’m very much enjoying.
I love the sound of your current reads! And I can’t wait to pick up a Sharon Bolton book now. Enjoy your books this week and happy reading!
Thank you 🙂 I hope you end up loving Sharon Bolton’s novels as much as I do.
You’ve definitely made me want to read The Honeymoon! I like the sound of the Surgeon book too – I’ve been enjoying memoirs a lot more lately!
The Honeymoon is so good! Fragile Lives is brilliant. It’s such a fascinating book and one I highly recommend.
