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!
It seems like ages since I wrote a WWW Wednesdays post but I’m trying to get back in the swing of blogging so hopefully I can start and do these regularly again. My plan at the moment is to focus on reading all my print books as I’ve been diagnosed with arthritis in my hands and that combined with my existing hand problems, not to mention my eyesight means I feel I need to read these books while I still can. I’m also trying to catch up on my NetGalley/review books so I’m reading those too.
I got sent a surprise print review copy of The Murder Game by Rachel Abbott at the start of the first lockdown so I’m very late getting to it. Better late than never though as I’m enjoying this thriller and am keen to get back to it!
I’m also reading Young Women by Jessica Moor from my NetGalley shelf and am gripped by this one. I loved the author’s previous novel and so far this oen absolutely lives up to it.
Then I’m reading Thrown by Sara Cox, which is a lovely novel set around a pottery class at a community centre and I’m really enjoying it.
In order to get through my print books without causing myself more pain I’m borrowing the audiobooks from the library where I can and Bloody Brilliant Women by Cathy Newman is one of those books. I devoured this book, it was so interesting and so readable. I’m kicking myself for not picking it up sooner and now I want to go and read more about some of the amazing women in this book that I’d not heard of before.
My husband gave me Me by Elton John for Christmas so this is a recent addition to my bookcase but I was very keen to read it and it didn’t disappoint. I loved reading this one.
A Promised Land by Barack Obama was a gift and I part read and part listened to this one (mainly because the hardback is like a doorstop!). I enjoyed having more of an insight into Obama’s presidency and am glad I read it.
I got Out of the Corner by Jennifer Grey with an Audible credit and I listened to it pretty much in just two sittings. I enjoyed this one so much, and I recommend the audio as Jennifer reads it herself, which I always appreciate with memoirs.
What I Might Read Next
In my plan to read all the unread print books on my bookcase I’ve been getting rid of quite a few books. An Orchestra of Minorities by Chigozie Obioma is one I thought I might unhaul but then I read the first few pages and knew it was one I had to keep and read so I hope to start it this week.
The Push by Audrey Audrain was a birthday gift from my husband last year and I still want to read it as much as I did on the day I got it so I hope to also read this one this week.
Murder Before Evensong by Richard Coles is the next book that will be published from my NetGalley shelf so I would like to read it before (or at least close to) publication day so that I can review it in a timely fashion. Also I’ve been eagerly anticipation this one as I’m such a fan of Richard Coles!
A Dark and Twisted Tide by Sharon Bolton has been on my TBR since it first came out and now the next book in the series is about to be released! I have the new one on my NetGalley shelf so I’d like to read this one as soon as I can so that I can read and review the next book in the series.
Fake Accounts by Lauren Oyler is an audiobook that has been on reserve from my library for so long that I’d forgotten I’d requested it until it appeared on my phone this week. I know I was really keen to read it so I plan to make it my next listen.
What are you reading at the moment? I’d love to know 🙂
