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 Hidden Legacy by G. J. Minett

This is one of my picks for my #20BooksOfSummer challenge. I’ve had this on my TBR ever since it was first published so I’m really happy to finally have got to it. I’m really engrossed in it and wondering where it’s going to go.

The Child by Fiona Barton

I’m really enjoying this book, it grabbed me in the first few chapters and I’m finding myself thinking about it when I’m not reading it which is always the sign of a great novel. The only reason I’ve not read it quicker is because my copy is a large paperback so it’s difficult to hold for longer periods of time.

The End We Start From by Megan Hunter

This is a novella and I thought it would be a quick, easy read. It’s actually a book that has really got under my skin and I’m finding it an emotional read at the moment so now I’m savouring every page. It’s a beautiful novella.

Baby Lost by Hannah Robert

I still haven’t managed to read any more of this book but the issue is entirely with me, not the book. I’m really hoping my non-fiction reading mojo returns soon so I can get back to this because it is such an interesting and moving book.

The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson

I did read a couple more chapters of this at the weekend and am finding it fascinating but my mood really isn’t for non-fiction just now so I’m just going to dip in and out of this and hope my mojo returns soon.

What I recently finished reading:

Guilty Innocence by Maggie James

This book was brilliant! I got the ebook a few months ago after reading reviews on some of my favourite blogs and it caught my eye on my kindle this week. It’s a very difficult subject matter to write fiction about children who murder but Maggie James got the balance right. I’m going to try and review this at some point but for now I definitely recommend it.

Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld

This was one of my #20BooksOfSummer and it was excellent. I have to be honest here and say that I’m not the biggest fan on Pride and Prejudice but it is a book I’ve read a few times over the years so I know it well, and this take on it was just brilliant! I very much enjoyed every minute that I spent reading this and highly recommend it.

Based on a True Story by Delphine de Vigan

I loved this book. It was one of those novels that really makes you think about what you’re reading as you’re reading it. I was engrossed in the pages but at the same time my brain was ticking over about what was going on. The writing is so good! I’ll be reviewing this one as soon as I get my thoughts together (hopefully soon!).

What I plan on reading next:

Last Seen by Lucy Clarke

I was planning to read this last week but didn’t get around to it so I’m putting it in my plan to read this week as I really want to read this asap!

Not A Sound by Heather Gudenkauf

I was sent a copy of this book for review last week and I’m really keen to read it so hopefully I can get to it this week too.

  1. It’s been a very long while since I read a novella. I would love to read ‘The End We Start From’. Thank you for this list. I am currently reading the last book in Robin Hobb’s The Farseer Trilogy. The book is monstrously long. I am throwing in some poetry, and children’s literature too. 🙂

  2. How are you doing? Glad to see you keeping on blogging away (I recently had a week’s hiatus – eeps!). I love the cover of Guilty Innocence – so clever.

    This week I finished Eric Newby’s “Something Wholesale” but haven’t reviewed it yet – very good and funny except the very end, which was dull!
    I’m currently reading ReWild by Nick Baker, a review copy to review at Shiny New Books – it’s amazing, and I really want to go for a moonlight nature walk now (with my husband, though, not alone!!) and The Black DIamond by Francis Brett Young, which follows the fortunes of a black country lad, currently in Wales trying to get work on the reservoir that feeds Birmingham. I love historical novels about my region. These are both 20BooksOfSummer books, numbers 7 and 8, I think.
    Next up will be Stuart Maconie’s The Road From Jarrow, where he retraces the steps of the walkers. That’s a NetGalley read I’m also reviewing for Shiny so it needs to be got to soon!

    Happy reading!

  3. You’ve a nice variety of books here this time! I’m especially interested in the Clarke, the Larson and the Barton, but they all sound interesting!

  4. What are you currently reading? Just started The Almost Moon by Alice Sebold and I’m about to start The Golden Cockerel & Other Writings by Juan Rulfo in a few minutes here.

    What did you recently finish reading? Today I finished Wintering by Peter Geye. Last night I finished The Farm in the Green Mountains by Alice Herdan-Zuckmayer.

    What do you think you’ll read next? Next up is The Danish Expedition of 1761 – 1767 by Arabia Felix and then REspect the Jux by Frank C. Matthews.

  5. Wow you are awesome if you manage to read 5 books at the same time, I have a hard struggle reading 3 at the same time hahaha. Me, Myself and I are trying to finish Love & Gelato for our bookclub thingy on Facebook. Then I have no idea what book to read next. Im a mood reader so I just take the book that feels right at the time 😀
