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:

Just my Luck by Adele Parks

I just got approved for this book on NetGalley yesterday and I’ve been so keen to read it that I started it straight away! I’m enjoying it so far.

 

What I recently finished reading:

The Secrets of Strangers by Charity Norman

This is the book that really began to get me out of my recent reading slump and I read it in two sittings. It’s such a good book and I’m looking forward to sharing my review as part of the blog tour next month. In the meantime I highly recommend pre-ordering it!

The Enchanted Wood by Enid Blyton

I picked this up as I was trying to find a way back into reading and thought a much-loved book from my childhood would help. I did enjoy this one but not quite as much as I did when I was little.

Adele by Leila Slimani

I borrowed the ebook of this one from the library and it was an okay read. It kept me gripped all the way through but I didn’t feel as engrossed as I did when I read Lullaby. I’m glad I read it though.

The Trap by Melanie Raabe

I’ve had the ebook of this on my TBR for over four years so when I spotted the audio book was available on the library app I decided to get it and listen to it. This book wasn’t what I expected really, I’m glad I listened to it rather than reading as it kept me going with it when I might have put it down.

 

What I plan on reading next:

Kitty Genovese: A True Account of a Public Murder and its Private Consequences by Catherine Pelonero

I bought this book recently and have been keen to pick it up. I read a novel based on this case a year or two ago and have wanted to know more about what happened ever since. I hope to get to this one this week.

The Guest List by Lucy Foley

I feel like while we’re on lockdown a book about people being trapped together might be interesting and this one grabbed my attention on my kindle!

Living My Best Life by Claire Frost

I’ve had a copy of this on my review pile for a while now and I think I’m just in the mood for it so hopefully I get to read it in the coming days!

  1. Glad you are able to climb out of your reading slump:))). The Enchanted Wood was one of my favourite reads another lifetime ago… glad it helped and have a good reading week.

    • Thank you. I’ve barely read anything for a couple of months now so it’s felt great to be back reading again this week. I loved The Faraway Tree books as a child, I read them over and over again – so magical! 🙂 Hope you’re keeping well. x

      • Yes, me and mine are all keeping well, thank goodness. I hope that you are also able to keep safe and well, Hayley and I’m delighted you are able to read again. It’s such a comfort if you can… though I know only too well there’s times when it simply doesn’t work.

        • I’m so pleased you’re keeping well. It’s such a worrying time. I’ve really missed reading, it’s always my escape so it’s horrible when my mojo ups and leaves. It feels like it’s on its way back now though so I’m grateful for that.

  2. How lovely to see an Enid Blyton on your list, Hayley! You have a point, too; sometimes a much-loved book from childhood can re-awaken interest in reading. The rest of your books look great, too. I’m especially interested in the Pelonero, as I’ve always found the Kitty Genovese case fascinating.

    • I love The Faraway Tree books as a child so thought that reading one might get me back into reading again. They brought me so much joy! 🙂 I’m keen to pick up the book about Kitty Genovese, it’s a case that brings up so many complex thoughts and feelings. Hope you’re keeping well. x

  3. I am curious about The Trap, and I’ve been eyeing The Guest List. The Secrets of Strangers is grabbing me right now, so off I go to check on it.

    Thanks for sharing, and enjoy your week.

  5. Nice bunch of reads. I’m especially curious about the Genovese book. I’m currently reading the Murderbot series. Reading Rogue Protocol now. Just finished Artificial Condition and will read Exit Strategy next. I’m having so much fun with the series.
