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.

What I’m reading now:
What She Saw Last Night by Mason Cross
I saw so many great reviews of this one the blog tour and I kept thinking of the premise and wondering about the storyline so I finally picked this up yesterday. I’m only a few chapters in but I’m gripped!
Dear Edward by Ann Napolitano
This book is so good! I’ve had a review copy from NetGalley for a while now and finally picked it up this week and am enjoying it so much. It’s a really emotional novel about a boy who is the sole survivor of an air crash and it’s such a good read.
Only Fools and Stories by David Jason
I read David Jason’s autobiography last year and enjoyed it so was keen to pick up the follow on book. This is more stories about the characters he’s played and some behind the scenes stuff. It’s a really fun read and I’m enjoying it.
What I recently finished reading:
The Home by Sarah Stovell
This book left me heartbroken! It’s a stunning psychological thriller about a teenage girl who is found dead and then it goes back and forth as we find out what happened. It’s a really raw and emotional book and one I think will stay with me for a long time to come. I’ll be reviewing this one on Friday so please check back then for my full thoughts.
17 Church Row by James Carol
I’d seen great reviews for this one on the blog tour so snapped it up on Kindle. I then saw the audio book available on BorrowBox so I part read and part listened to this one. I really enjoyed the first half of the novel but it lost me a little after that. It was a gripping read though and I’m glad I read it.
One Little Mistake by Emma Curtis
I’ve had a copy of this book ever since it was published but I finally picked it up at the end of December and finished it this week. It was such a gripping thriller about a woman who makes one mistake and ends up paying a heavy price for it.
This novel is set in a dystopian future where sugar is banned. It’s such a gripping and thought-provoking read, I really enjoyed it. I’ve already reviewed this one so you can find there here if you’d like to know more.
The Toymakers by Robert Dinsdale
This is a gorgeous book that I’ve been wanting to read for quite a while. I started it in December and finished it a few days ago. I part read and part listened to it and it’s just such a fab story. It reminded me of how I used to love stories as a child and I now want to read anything and everything by this author!
It’s A Wonderful Night by Jaimie Admans
This is another book that I partly read at the end of 2019 and finished it at the beginning of this year. I loved this novel – it’s got such a lovely cast of characters and such a great message in it. I definitely want to read more by this author in the future.
Wham! George and Me by Andrew Ridgeley
My husband bought me this for Christmas and I knew it had to be my first read of 2020 as I was sure it would get my reading year off to a fabulous start and it absolutely did. I read this all in one sitting on New Year’s Day and I adored it. I recommend it if you’re a Wham fan!
What I plan on reading next:
My Dark Vanessa by Kate Elizabeth Russell
This is one of my most eagerly anticipated books of 2020 and I don’t think I can resist picking up my review copy any longer!
I Want You Gone by Miranda Rijks
This has been on my NetGalley shelf for longer than it should have so I want to try and make it a priority for this week. Hopefully I can get to it as it does sound really intriguing.
Look What You Made Me Do by Helen Walmsley-Johnson
This is another book that I got for Christmas and I’ve read really good reviews of it so would like to make this my next nonfiction read of 2020.

So many tempting books! The Home and One Little Mistake sound so good!
Thanks for sharing, and here is MY WWW POST
Both were such good reads, especially The Home. 🙂
I’m currently reading Robert Inman’s “Captain Saturday”, a novel set in North Carolina about a weatherman whose life falls apart, it’s unputdownable. I’ve recently finished “Indistractable” from NetGalley which was all a bit obvious and not reviewed yet, and I’ve started Vybar Creagan-Reid’s “Footnotes: Why We Run” which is quite dense but fascinating.
Captain Saturday sounds like an interesting read, I’ve not heard of it before but I’ll make a note of it. I hope you have a good week in books coming up! 🙂
Really looking forward to My Dark Vanessa as well!! Nice post!
Thank you 🙂 I can’t wait to read it, I’ve heard such good things about it.
Wow you’ve read some great books! Here’s my WWW link: https://thesecretlibrarysite.wordpress.com/2020/01/08/www-wednesdays-08-01-20/
Thank you 🙂
You have several really tempting books there, Hayley. There are a few them I’d like to try, and, as ever, I like the variety in your choices!
Thank you 🙂 I do like to read a selection of different books where I can, it keeps things interesting.
I’ve never heard of My Dark Vanessa, but that cover and title have me curious. I hope it’s good!
Thank you! I’ve heard such good things about it from people who read it really early so I have high hopes for it.
Just starting Vanessa…so uncomfortable yet.addictive
It does sound like an uncomfortable read but I’ve heard so many good things about it.
Finished it Hayley…what a read 👌
I still haven’t managed to start it but I’m hoping to this week. I’m glad you found it to be such a good read.
I’ll be looking forward to your thoughts on The Home! And I definitely love the sound of Dear Edward. Have a wonderful week and happy reading. xx
Dear Edward is such a stunning novel, it’s very moving but so well written. I’m deliberately reading it slowly as I don’t want it to end. Happy reading to you too. xx
Oh that sounds fantastic! xx
It’s a gorgeous novel – heartbreaking but also life-affirming. It’s one I won’t forget! x
I really want to read Dear Edward! 🙂 It’s true that 17 Church Row is somehow cut in half, and sometimes it lessens the interest xx
Dear Edward is stunning! I’m deliberately reading it slowly as I don’t want it to end but I highly recommend it. xx
