WWW Wednesdays (8 Dec ’21)! 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!

Current Reads

I can’t remember when I bought The Murder of Mr Moonlight by Catherine Fegan but it was on my Kindle and I decided to read it this week.

I’m also still reading the relevant sections of The Christmas Chronicles by Nigel Slater on the relevant days and am very much enjoying it.

Recent Reads

I seem to have read a lot of Christmas books this week and I’ve enjoyed them all but to varying degrees. Christmas at Frozen Falls by Kiley Dunbar was good and I adored the setting but it wasn’t as festive as I was hoping. Mistletoe on 34th Street by Lisa Dickenson on the other hand was everything I wanted in a Christmas read this week and I very much enjoyed it. I also really enjoyed reading The Christmas Murder Game by Alexandra Benedict, which is a take on a locked room Christmas mystery and I found myself completely engrossed in it. My other Christmas read was I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day by Milly Johnson, which I listened to on audio and it was another one that I found really festive and lovely.

The only non-Christmas book that I read this week was Real Men Knit by Kwana Jackson and I enjoyed this one. I’ve already reviewed it here if you’ve like to know more.

I don’t know what I’ll be reading next but I just treated myself to Christmas Pudding by Nancy Mitford and am really keen to read it so I think I may pick it up. I also bought The Holiday Swap by Maggie Knox on Kindle and would like to get to it before Christmas so hopefully I get to it this week. Aside from Christmas reads the book that caught my eye as I was writing this post was The Plot by Jean Hanff Korelitz so maybe I’ll read this one next.

What are you reading at the moment? I’d love to know 🙂

  1. What a lovely collection of Christmas reads, there’s something enticing about themed reads that are so festive.

    I’m reading over this month Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer which is a wonderful narrative nonfiction book about our connection to the natural world and plants about gift giving and reciprocity.

  2. Mistletoe on 34th Street sounds delightful and I’ll be curious to hear more about The Holiday Switch. That definitely caught my eye. Happy reading!

  3. So many Christmas books! I finished my last Anne Tyler this week, and it was a bit … hm. Flat? I have to review it for tomorrow so I’ll see what I think about it then. There were redeeming factors. I’ve finished two light novels this week, reviewed one the other day with another, the second was better and “The Arctic Curry Club” is good so far. I am reading “How to Read Water” which is quite a dense and tiring read, but has moments of such fascination I can’t leave it alone.
