WWW Wednesdays (31 Jan)! 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 Note by Zoe Folbigg

I have an ARC of this which I got after seeing the author interviewed on TV around the time the book was released so I’m happy to finally be reading this one. It’s an easy read and I’m really enjoying it so far.

The Innocent Wife by Amy Lloyd

I picked this book up yesterday and am hooked! I didn’t know much about this book going into it and have no idea where it’s going to go. It’s got me guessing though and I’m keen to read more!

Spark Joy by Marie Kondo

I’m still dipping in and out of this book and finding lots to motivate me.


What I recently finished reading:

Spaceman by Mike Massimino

This was a birthday present from my husband and I started reading it the minute I finished opening my presents (a birthday book haul post will be up soon!). It was such a brilliant read, I loved every minute of reading it.

Winter by Ali Smith

I’ve been reading this for a while as I was struggling with physically holding the book but yesterday I managed to read the second half of the book in one go and I adored it. This is a brilliant book and I’m already looking forward to the next in the quartet!

The Break by Marian Keyes

I couldn’t get into this the first time I started it but wanted to give it another go as I do love Marian Keyes writing. I picked it up at the weekend and ended up reading it in two sittings and I very much enjoyed it. I’ll hopefully get my review of this posted soon.

This Is How It Ends by Eva Dolan

This book was so good! I love the way it was told with the two main characters timelines moving in opposite directions, and it kept me on my toes all the way through. I’m still trying to write my review but hopefully I’ll get it finished soon, I recommend this though.

I Let Him Go by Denise Fergus

I bought this book last Thursday and read it the same day. It’s a very open and honest and heartbreaking memoir.

Meeting Lydia by Linda MacDonald

I read and reviewed this one last week so you can read my thoughts here if you’d like to know more. I enjoyed this book.


What I plan on reading next:

Waco by David Thibodeau

I put this in my planned reading a couple of weeks ago and didn’t manage to start it so I’m going to aim to get to it in the coming week.

The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn

I really want to read this book as I’ve heard so many great things so it’s on my next-to-read pile and I definitely want to get to it this week.

The Reunion by Samantha Hayes

I downloaded an ARC of this from NetGalley recently and have been keen to read it as soon as possible. It’s due out in February (I think!) so now seems a good time to pick it up!

  1. I couldn’t get into the Break either. Maybe I need to give it another go. Hope you enjoy the Woman In The Window!

  2. I’ve been seeing some conflicting reviews about This Is How It Ends. I have a copy, just haven’t had time to read it yet. Glad to hear you enjoyed it.

    Look forward to hearing what you think of The Woman in the Window. Happy reading! xx

  3. You have such great reads here, Hayley. I’m especially glad you enjoyed the Dolan as much as you did. I think she’s a very talented writer, and I very much like her series.

  4. I just received The Woman in the Wondow from Book of the Month this moth and I can’t wait to read it! I also have been eyeing The Innocent Wife and am glad to hear it has gotten you hooked! I am looking forward to both!

    Here is my WWW:

    • It looks like such a good read, doesn’t it? I’m hoping to start reading it this weekend. The Innocent wife is really good so far, I’m intrigued by where it’s going.
      I’m really behind on reading and commenting blogs this week but I’ll go read your post now. Thanks for leaving your link 🙂

  5. I’m glad you enjoyed The Break in the end and look forward to your review. I was so excited to read it on NetGalley a while ago! I’ve been reading up a storm this week – hooray – and have finished “The Year of Living Danishly”, Ben Fogle’s “An Island of my Own” and Jenni Murray’s “A HIstory of Britain in 21 Women” (first two reviewed, Murray review coming out tomorrow). I’ve been having to double-review some days to get everything in along with my state of the TBR and Iris Murdoch readalong posts!

    Next up is Veronica Chambers’ “Kick-Boxing Geishas” which is about women in modern Japan and looks super-interesting. Enjoy your next books, too!

  6. Some interesting books here – but I daren’t add anything else to my TBR pile until I make some serious indents into it!

  7. A fab week of reading! I really like the sound of The Innocent Wife, so I’ll be looking out for your review of that one!
    Also interested to see your review of This is How it Ends – I’ve heard good things! x

  8. The Note looks great! And I’ve been doubting whether to get a copy of The Reunion myself… I’m a sucker for butterfly covers and it does sounds like a great story. I hope you will enjoy your books this week and happy reading!
