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:

A Manual for Heartache by Cathy Rentzenbrink

I had this pre-ordered on Kindle as I’ve been so keen to read it. I started it last night and it’s brilliant, I really am getting so much out of it. In fact I’m finding it so brilliant that I’ve now ordered a hardback copy to have on my bookcase. I highly recommend this book!

Last Seen by Lucy Clarke

I’m a huge fan of Lucy Clarke and always look forward to a new novel from her. I’m so pleased to say that this book absolutely lives up to her previous books and I’m utterly engrossed in it.

The Child by Fiona Barton

I’ve listed this here but unfortunately I’m not actively reading this at the moment due to it being a large paperback and I physically can’t turn the pages just now. I have been very much hooked on the novel though and hope to be able to read more soon.

The End We Start From by Megan Hunter

This book is so much more than I even expected it to be and even though it’s a short book I’m deliberately reading it slowly to take it all in.

Baby Lost by Hannah Robert

I’ve read a few more chapters of this book this week and am finding it such a powerful read. I recommend this book.

The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson

I’m hoping to finally read a big chunk of this book in the coming week as my non-fiction mojo seems to be on its way back.


What I recently finished reading:

My Sister Milly by Gemma Dowler

I hadn’t heard about this book until I saw Gemma being interviewed on This Morning last week and I immediately bought the ebook. This is an incredibly moving book and one I want to review once I’ve got my thoughts together.

A Line of Blood by Ben McPherson

I’ve had this on my TBR for ages but it’s never got to the top of the mountain but when I saw the audio book was on my subscription service last week I decided to listen to it. I did find it very predictable which was a little disappointing but it was an enjoyable enough listen.

The Hidden Legacy by G. J. Minett

This was my latest pick from my #20BooksofSummer challenge and I really enjoyed it. I read it over two days and found myself completely hooked. I recommend this one and am kicking myself for leaving it on my TBR for so long before picking it up.

What I plan on reading next:

The Other Twin by Lucy V. Hay

I’ve been so excited to read this book for a good few weeks now and it’s finally time! I’ve heard so many good things about it and I think it’s going to be a real treat.

Not a Sound by Heather Gudenkauf

This was a book I hoped to read last week but didn’t manage to get to it. I’m going to make it a priority this week though and am really looking forward to it.

    • I’m looking forward to starting Not a Sound, even more so now you’ve said you loved it. I think I’m going to buy the ebook of The Child so I can continue with it as I was really enjoying the novel, just struggling with holding the print book. Thank you 🙂

    • I had an Audible subscription for years – I paid £7.99 for one credit a month and then for that I could choose one audio book to download and keep. They also have daily deals which are really good value. I recently discovered a new audio book site called BookBeat where you pay £14.90 a month and you can borrow any book on their site – they have a lot of the big publishers on there so I’ve made a huge list of books I want to get to! It’s a rental service so you don’t get to keep the books but if you listen to a lot of audio books then it’s really worth it. I think they usually have a free trial for fourteen days so it’s worth trying them out. 🙂

  1. Look forward to reading your review of My Sister Milly. I can’t imagine what it must have been like or to be living with it still.

  2. I hear the Hay is quite good, Hayley, so I hope you’ll enjoy it. And both the Clarke and the Barton sound very good, indeed, too. I think you’ve got some good reading ahead of you!

  3. I am about 1/4 into The Other Twin and it is very intriguing. Can’t wait to see how the rest of it plays out. Looking forward to your review of it!

  4. I hadn’t heard about My Sister Milly, but just checked it out. Sounds really good. (But, long.)
    The End We Started From is coming up for me, too. I’m very excited for that one!
    Have a great week.
