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 Week ‘Til Christmas by Belinda Missen
This book is gorgeous! It’s so festive and fun and I’m really loving reading it. I’ll be reviewing this on 1st November so please look out for my full thoughts then.
Nothing Important Happened Here by Will Carver
This book is brilliant – it’s so dark and like nothing I’ve read before but it’s so good. I do have to keep taking a little break because of the subject matter so I’m taking my time with this one but I’m still loving the writing.
James Baldwin and the 1980s: Witnessing the Reagan Era by Joseph Vogel
I didn’t read as much of this book as I’d hoped this week as my kindle is playing up but I hope I can get back to it soon.
The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie
I’m reading this one slowly because I am loving it so much! It’s really reminded me how much I loved Agatha Christie’s novels when I was younger and now I want to re-read them all.
What I recently finished reading:
Do Not Feed the Bear by Rachel Elliott
This is a stunning novel that I adored! I read it in two sittings and I keep thinking about it ever since I finished it. I will review this one as soon I get my thoughts together but I can say now that I highly recommend it!
The Seven Imperfect Rules of Elvira Carr by Frances Maynard
I’ve had a proof of this on my TBR for a while now and so was glad to make time to read it this week. I enjoyed this one, it was a lovely way to spend a couple of afternoons this week. I do plan on reviewing this one soon.
Trying by Emily Phillips
I’ve also had a proof copy of this for a long time and finally picked it up this week. I did enjoy this one for the most part but it was lacking something for me. I’m still mulling over how I feel about it but I will write a review once I’ve thought about it a bit more.
Violet by SJI Holliday
This was such a good book, so twisted and hard to put down! I actually read it all in one sitting as it had me so engrossed that I simply had to know how it was going to end. I’ll be reviewing this one on 6th November but in the meantime I recommend it!
Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer
I’ve been wanting to read this book for ages so when I spotted the audio book in my library app I decided to download it. I found this such a fascinating book, and really appreciated all the extra information the author added in a later addition correcting errors in the way he told the story. It’s made me want to read the books other climbers on the same expedition have written to see their perspectives more fully.
The Eleventh Day by Anthony Summers
I finished reading this soon after last week’s WWW Wednesdays post and I’m so glad that I stuck with it as it was a really interesting look at all the politics before and after 9/11. I learnt things that I didn’t know before, which is always good in a non-fiction book.
What I plan on reading next:
Magic Under the Mistletoe by Lucy Coleman
This is the next festive book that I plan on reading and as Non-Fiction November is almost upon us I’d like to read this very soon so I can focus on non-fiction for the most part through the month.
Constellations by Sinead Gleason
This is a book that I’ve wanted to read for ages and I’ve saved it for Non-Fiction November so I’m thrilled that I will finally be picking it up this week.
How to be Human by Ruby Wax
This is another proof that I’ve had on my TBR for a while now so I’m keen to read it during November.
Bowie’s Bookshelf by John O’Connell
I only got an ARC of this from NetGalley very recently and I’m so keen to read it. I’m a huge fan of David Bowie and am excited to read more about the books that he loved.

I saw The Bowie’s Bookshelf on NetGalley and was very tempted to request it. Is it quite a long book?
It’s not very long at all, I think under 300 pages and it lists all the books in the beginning so that takes up a few pages. I’m hoping to start reading it this weekend.
Nothing Important Happened Today is insanely dark and fantastic! It took me forever to write my review, haha! Happy reading! xxx
I’ve almost finished reading it and I have no idea how on earth I’ll manage to review it – it’s such a brilliant novel though. x
As always, you have such a beautifully varied set of books here, Hayley. And it’s great to see you’re re-reading The Murder of Roger Ackroyd. To me, that’s one of Christie’s best, and that’s saying a lot!
Thank you 🙂 I’m enjoying The Murder of Roger Ackroyd so much and it’s made me want to re-read more Agatha Christie.
One week till Christmas and magic under the mistletoe are two I’m going to check out, I love Christmassy books. Great post😊
Thank you 🙂 I love Christmassy books too, they’re such feel-good reads.
Totally agree! I always look forward to Christmassy books. Your welcome😊
Once more the sheer variety of your list leaves me humbled and awestruck – I hope you enjoy them all, Hayley:)
Thank you 🙂
I can’t wait to get copies of Violet and Nothing Important Happened Today! Both sound fantastic. Happy reading! xx
Both were such good reads, I recommend them. 🙂
