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:

One Night in November by Amelie Antoine

This is a non-fiction book about the terrorist attack on the Bataclan in Paris in 2015. It’s an incredibly moving, and very difficult, book to read. I keep having to put it down but I will finish it. It is well written, it’s just a very tough subject to read about.

All Out War: How Brexit Sunk Britain’s Political Class by Tim Shipman

This is my latest audio book and I’m really enjoying it. It’s a well-balanced look at what happened politically that led to the referendum, and the result to leave the EU. It’s a long book but it’s fascinating and engaging.

The Fact of a Body by Alexandria Marzano-Levinich

This is a really interesting book and I’m so glad I picked it up. It’s non-fiction but the author is very much within the story being told, and there are parts that have been imagined based on the facts that are known. I’ll be reviewing this one once I’ve read it but I can already say that I’ll be recommending it.

The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson

I’ve not read much of this in the last few days but I am so invested in this book now and will be reading more of it very soon.

 

What I recently finished reading:

Her Deadly Secret by Chris Curran

I really enjoyed this thriller and actually read it in one sitting as I just couldn’t put it down. It’s fast-paced and keeps you gripped. I’ve already reviewed this for the blog tour so you can read my thoughts here if you’d like to know more of what I thought of it.

Letters to Sarah by Sara Payne

This is such a moving and heartbreaking read, but an inspiring read at the same time. It’s a book to take time over and perhaps read one letter at a time but it’s a book I’d recommend.

 

What I plan on reading next:

Yesterday by Felicia Yap

I was so excited when I got approved for this on NetGalley a couple of weeks back and it’s been calling to me from my TBR ever since so I’m hoping I can start it in the next couple of days.

Idaho by Emily Ruskovich

I’ve had this book on my review pile for a little while now and it’s a book that keeps catching my eye so I’m also hoping to make time to read this one in the next week too.

  1. Good to hear you are enjoying The Fact of a Body which I thought was one of the best true-crime/memoirs I’ve read for a long time. I also have Yesterday coming up soon, oh and the Chris Curran – lots of great books to read!!

  2. I am going to have to read One Night in November… It still hurts but I’m glad it was translated and I feel it’s important to share. I don’t know if I’m ready yet, but it will find itself on my TBR at some point. Yesterday is one of the books I really want to read! Happy reading, my sweet Hayley! x

  3. You really have some interesting-sounding non-fiction reads this time, Hayley. I already want to read the Larson, and I’ll be interested in your review of The Fact of a Body, too.

  4. I could not deal with One Night In November so well done for facing it! I have recently finished Miriam Toews’ A Boy of Good Breeding and have JUST reviewed it. I’m currently reading Farahad Zama’s Mrs Ali’s Road to Happiness (a lot more complex and deep than it would appear and a VERY good read) and Adam Nicolson’s When God Spoke English, which is about the King James Bible and is excellent but requires more concentration than I’ve had the last few days. Next I hope to get properly stuck into Run for your Life by William Pullen which is about mindfulness in running and might chime well with my recent move to be an England Athletics Mental Health Ambassador.

  5. I’m interested in what you think of The Devil in the White City when you’ve finished it. I’m on the fence about it. I’m not sure I could read One Night in November, or any book based on a terrorist event. Good luck getting through it.
