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:

After Anna by Alex Lake

This is another book that I’ve had on my TBR since it first came out so I decided to make it my next read. It’s a fast-paced novel and easy to follow but I suspect it may be a little predictable – I haven’t got to the full reveal yet though so I’ll reserve judgement for now.

Based on a True Story by Delphine de Vigan

I’m finding this book fascinating – I keep stopping reading and pondering over the part I’ve just read. I’m deliberately taking my time with this as I’m enjoying it so much.

Into the Water by Paula Hawkins

This is a really good read but I’ve been in a non-fiction mood over the last few days so I’ve put this to one side. I will be picking it up again soon though.

How to Survive a Plague by David France

I’ve been engrossed in this book at every chance I’ve had over the last week. It’s such a moving book, and even though I’ve read other books about the AIDS crisis in the 80s, I’m finding that I’ve been utterly shocked and furious at what happened back then. The way people were treated, the missed chances for treatment options. It’s such a powerful read, and one I think everyone should pick up.

 

What I recently finished reading:

How We Met by Katy Regan

This is another book that I’ve had on my TBR for ages now so when I spotted it on my audio subscription a couple of days ago I decided to make it my next listen. I enjoyed it and would recommend it if you like light fiction with a bit more depth to it.

I Know My Name by C.J. Cooke

This book! I picked this up late at night and read until I couldn’t keep my eyes open, then I picked it up again in the morning and didn’t put it down until I’d finished it. It had me on edge, it had my second-guessing myself – it was brilliant. I hope to get my thoughts together to write my review later this week.

Wishbones by Virginia MacGregor

This was another audio book that I listened to this week. This was picked on a whim as I wanted something light and easy. Wishbones was a wonderful novel for young people (mid-grade) that really gives an insight into eating disorders. I recommend this.

Letting Go by Alex Hanscombe

This is the memoir of Rachel Nickell’s son. He was with her when she was murdered on Wimbledon Common, he witnessed it at just three years old. This memoir is so candid and very moving. It’s also a really inspiring and thought-provoking read.

What I plan on reading next:

The End We Start From by Megan Hunter

The End We Start From by Megan Hunter

I was approved to read this from NetGalley a week or so ago and I’ve heard such good things about it that I really want to read it as soon as I can.

  1. You have such interesting selections here, Hayley! I’m interesting in particular in I Know My Name. It sounds – just from the title – intriguing! I look forward to your review when you get there.

  2. I had just given up on the latest Laura Barnett, was finishing a book about micro financing and had started Willa Cather’s “The Professor’s House” yesterday.
