WWW Wednesdays (26 Jan ’22)! 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 started Idol by Louise O’Neill yesterday afternoon and have been struggling to put it down ever since. It grabbed me from the first chapter and I really want to know where the story is going to go!

I also started reading When No One is Watching by Alyssa Cole and am intrigued by this one. I’m enjoying all the dynamics between the neighbours and am keen to see what is happening.

Recent Reads

The first book I finished since my last WWW post was The Twyford Code by Janice Hallett and I absolutely loved it. I found it gripping and intriguing and even when I thought I had it figured out there was still more surprises in store!

I also finished listening to Girl in the Dark by Anna Lyndsey. I found parts of this book fascinating and parts of it a bit self-indulgent at times. It was a 3 star read for me.

I started and finished the audiobook of My Mess is a Bit of a Life by Georgia Pritchett and I adored this one. It really shows what it is like to live with anxiety and I connected with quite a lot of it.

I read Tall Bones by Anna Bailey and also loved this one. It was very atmospheric and brutal at times but the writing is beautiful.

Yesterday I read Reputation by Sarah Vaughan all in one sitting – it had me hooked from start to finish and it feels like a book that will stay with me. I recommend it!

I’m reading my way through my NetGalley shelf at the moment so the next three from there that are calling to me are A Tidy Ending by Joanna Cannon, The Paris Apartment by Lucy Foley and The Curfew by TM Logan.

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

  1. Ever since I read Every Last Secret by AR Torre I’ve also been intrigued by thrillers with neighbors. That Cole one sounds really interesting. I’m going to have to look it up. I hope you love it.

  2. I enjoyed My Mess is a Bit of a Life when I read it from NG last year – I ended my review with “It’s unusual, but I liked it”. My review here if you missed it https://librofulltime.wordpress.com/2021/07/18/book-review-georgia-pritchett-my-mess-is-a-bit-of-a-life/

    Yesterday I finished Jon Kalman Stefansson’s Heaven and Hell, the first in a rather grim Icelandic trilogy which I am enjoying for not being noirish crime and very atmospheric, and Brown Girls by Daphne Palasi Andreades which was an amazing book written in the first person plural (we … we …). I’m onto River Kings by Cat Jarman, a new history of the Vikings, and the next Jon Kalman Stefansson, I’m doing a challenge with Nordic reads which handily continues until 6 Feb!
