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:
Dopesick by Beth Macy
I discovered this book during Non-Fiction November and decided to read it straight away. It’s a hard book as its looking at drug addiction but it’s well-written and really interesting.
Three Hours by Rosamund Lupton
I’m a fan of this author so was thrilled to get to read her forthcoming novel Three Hours. I’m finding this book to be gripping and tense… it’s hard to put down!
Bowie’s Bookshelf by John O’Connell
I’m really enjoying dipping in and out of this book and learning more about the books that Bowie loved plus a bit more about said books.
Snowglobe by Amy Wilson
This is a gorgeous winter read and I’m kicking myself for not reading it sooner. It’s a middle grade/YA book and it’s stunning!
What I recently finished reading:
Alice Teale is Missing by Howard Linskey
I read this book over the last two days and it was so good. I loved the two detectives in this novel and am hoping this might become a series and that we’ll get to see them again.
Christmas at the Chateau by Lorraine Wilson
This is a short novella that I read in about an hour but it’s a really lovely story. It’s set at Christmas and is full of romance. I’ll be reviewing this one on 5th December for the blog tour so please look out for that then. In the meantime I recommend it!
One Christmas Night by Hayley Webster
This book is gorgeous, I loved every single minute that I spent reading it. It’s a Christmas novel that is different from other books I’ve read and I just adored it. I’ll be reviewing this one soon.
If I Forget You by Thomas Christopher Greene
I’d had this book on my TBR for 3.5 years, which is terrible as I know I love the author’s writing. Anyway, I finally picked it up this week and it was a lovely short read. It’s all about relationships, secrets and regret.
Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal? by Jeanette Winterson
I can’t believe I’ve never read this one before but it was such a good book. I found it such a moving and open read, one that will stay with me.
Constellations by Sinead Gleason
This is a brilliant book of essays all about Sinead’s life and about being a woman. I did love some of the essays more than others but all are excellently written. I recommend it.
The Five by Hallie Rubenhold
This book is brilliant. I’m in awe of the author and the amount of research she must have done to put these women’s stories together. I love that the focus is entirely on each of them and isn’t about who killed them. I recommend this to everyone, it’s one of the best nonfiction books I’ve read this year.
The Assistant by S. K. Tremayne
I really enjoyed this thriller, it was one of those that’s unnerving and unputdownable at the same time. I reviewed this one yesterday so you can find my full thoughts here if you’d like to know more.
What I plan on reading next:
Dear Edward by Ann Napolitano
I was delighted to get an ARC of this a while ago and have held off reading it until nearer publication but given that I’ll be focussed on Christmas reading soon I thought I’d sneak this one in this week!
Home Truths by Tina Seskis
This is another book that I really wanted to get to before publication day so I’m determined to pick this one up in the next day or two!
Finding Christmas by Karen Schaler
This is the next Christmas book I want to get to and I’m looking forward to this one. I read a book, Christmas Camp, by the author last year and loved it so I have high hopes for this one
The Secret Santa by Trish Harnetiaux
This is a festive thriller and I’m so keen to get to this one so I might pick this one up in the coming days too!

I finished Three Hours yesterday and it loved it, such a good book! Here’s my WWW post https://thesecretlibrarysite.wordpress.com/2019/11/27/www-wednesdays-27-11-19-%f0%9f%93%9a%f0%9f%93%9a%f0%9f%93%9a/
So glad you liked Alice Teale. I totally agree, would love to see these two return. I listened to The Five recently too. Wonderful piece of social history.
What a great collection of books, Hayley! Crime fiction, non-fiction, holiday books, and more! I give you a lot of credit for all the variety here.
I just finished Vanity Fair. I’m currently reading Five a Little Pigs (Christie) but I’m not sure what’s next, except it will be light and fun
Finished Perfect People by Peter James, currently reading Autumn, The Cats Return by Phillipe Georget (which has nothing to do with cats – it’s a European crime mystery).
I spy some Christmas books I want to check out. Right now I’m working my way through the Deadwood series.
So many great ones, Hayley! I really want to read Dopesick and Finding Christmas and look forward to your thoughts!
I love how you always read such a great mix of books. I think that every time I look at your WWW Wednesday posts. I also love all the holiday romance on here. I’m almost ready to be in the mood for them!
I can’t believe you read 8 books this week AND enjoyed/loved all of them that’s such a great reading week! I hope next week works out just as well! 🙂
There are several books on here that haven’t been on my radar before and I want to look into now. I don’t normally read much non-fiction, but Dopesick looks really interesting. Alice Teale is missing and The Assistant look intriguing, too!
You had an awesome reading week! I need to get some Christmas themed books together for December!
