WWW Wednesday (14 Jun) What are you reading this week?

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 Things We Thought We Knew by Mahsuda Snaith

I was thrilled when I was offered the chance to read and review this book as it’s one that’s been on my wish list ever since I first heard about it. I started reading it yesterday and it hooked me in straight away and I feel sure this is going to be a book that I’ll love.

Baby Lost by Hannah Robert

I haven’t read much more of this book since my last WWW Wednesday post as I’ve been struggling with non-fiction this week due to needing more my books to give me escapism. This is such a great book though and I hope to get back to it very soon.

The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson

This is my other non-fiction book and this has also been put to one side since my last post. The book had really grabbed me so I’m hoping to get back to it soon, it just wasn’t the right book for me this week.

The Nest by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney

I discovered the audio book version of this book on my audio subscription app this week so I’m half-listening and half-reading this and am enjoying it so much. I had high hopes for the book and it’s actually even better than I was expecting.

Based on a True Story by Delphine de Vigan

This book has been on the back burner for most of the last week but I did pick it back up last night and read quite a few pages of it so I’m hoping I can continue and finish this soon. It’s such a great read, I just wish life hadn’t got in the way of me reading it quicker.

What I recently finished reading:

A Year Lost and Found by Michael Mayne

I bought this book a few weeks ago after reading about it in another book I read earlier this year. If I’m to be completely honest it was more religious than I normally like to read but in the context of illness and recovery and how people deal with life-changing conditions it was a really soothing read for me and I’m so glad I read it.

One of Us is Lying by Karen McManus

I finished reading this book earlier this week but haven’t managed to write my review as yet. I did enjoy the book but it fell a bit flat for me so I’m letting it settle for a few days before I write my review.

The Lie of the Land by Amanda Craig

This book is brilliant and I highly recommend it! I’ve already reviewed it so you can read my thoughts here if you’d like to.

What I plan on reading next:

Exquisite by Sarah Stovell

I’ve been so excited to read this book but have been holding off until nearer my date on the blog tour… and now it’s finally time to start reading it! I’ve heard only great things about this book.

Bluets by Maggie Nelson

I treated myself to this book a couple of weeks ago and it’s been calling to me from my bookcase ever since so I can’t hold off reading it any longer!

Bad Choices by Ali Almossawi

This book was sent to me for review at the weekend and it looks like such a fun and interesting read and a book that I can dip in and out of so I’d like to start it soon.

  1. I have two out of your next reads on my TBR. I am going to read Exquisite first as I am doing a Orendathon later this month 😀 Great post! I love books like Bad Choices but I don’t get a lot of time to read them 😦

  2. Looking forward to your review of One of Us is Lying. I have been seeing it around though I am yet to read it. The Things we thought we knew sounds really good. Happy reading.

  3. You’ve definitely got some interesting books there! And I know exactly what you mean about putting off reading or finishing a book until you’re in the right frame of mind for it. I think it’s always better to do that than to keep on with a book that you might actually enjoy if you read it at a different time.

  4. Another batch of fascinating books, Hayley. Yes – I agree about your comment regarding waiting until you’re in the right frame of mind for a particular book. Otherwise it can be a trudge, which isn’t fair on the book – or the reader! Have a lovely reading week:)

  5. You’re always reading such a great combination of books! I just finished The Transcriptionist by by Amy Rowland and I LOVED it! It was real weird and great. I’m currently reading Innocents and Others by by Dana Spiotta, which I’ve only gotten through a chapter of but quickly fell in love, and And Then There Was Me by Sadeqa Johnson which I didn’t really care about initially but 150 pages in it’s starting to grow on me.

  6. Other than One of Us is Lying I don’t know any of your reads this week. I’m going to have to go investigate and no doubt add to the tbr mountain. If you don’t hear from me I’m probably buried under it 😂

  7. Another really interesting mix of books from you. It seems so many people are reading Exquisite at the moment. I kind of wish I liked the genre! I’m currently reading Godblind by Anna Stephens it’s a pretty brutal fantasy. I’ve cringed more reading this than I have reading anything in quite some time and I haven’t even hit the halfway point yet! 😂

  8. Now I’ve kind of bedded in to reading your blog, I love seeing your progress in these and the round-up posts! I am behind with my blog reading because I had dental work done on Tuesday leading me to lose work time that day and be trying to catch up the rest of the week! But I think on Wednesday I was still working my way through quite a worthy book on feminism and socialism in the 1830s (it’s done now).
