WWW Wednesdays (1 Jun ’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 reading Murder Before Evensong by Richard Coles this week and I’m really enjoying it. It did take me a few chapters to get into it but now I’m loving it.

I also started reading Raceless by Georgina Lawton. I’ve only read they first couple of chapters but I can tell this is going to be a fascinating and emotional memoir about growing up mixed race in a white family that didn’t acknowledge her race.

Recent Reads

I read and adored Nonfiction by Julie Myerson this week. Myerson wrote one of my favourite books aand this one lives up to that. It’s thought-provoking, emotional and is a book that feels like it’s really going to stay with me.

I finally read A Dark and Twisted Tide by Sharon Bolton, which had been on my TBR since 2014! I’m keen to read the new Lacey Flint so wanted to read this one first. This one wasn’t my favourite in the series but I still really enjoyed it and can’t wait to be able to read for new one soon!

I borrowed the audiobook of Kill Me Again by Rachel Abbott from the library and enjoyed listening to it. It kept me engrossed over a couple of days when I wasn’t feeling well.

Before that I sat and read my paperback copy of The Gifts of the Body by Rebecca Brown and loved it. This is such an emotional novel following a woman who is a home help for AIDS patients in the 1980s. It covers a whole range of subjects relating to terminal illness and death and I thought it was a brilliant novel. It’s one that I know will stay with me.

I also finished reading The Push by Ashley Audrain and loved it! I thought this was such a brilliant novel about motherhood and the harms that can be done from one generation to the next.

What I Might Read Next

I don’t know what I’ll read next but Blue Hour by Sarah Schmidt and Still Born by Guadalupe Nettel are calling to me from my NetGalley Shelf, and the print book I hope to read next is Assembly by Natasha Brown.

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

  1. Both of your current reads look so good. A memoir by someone of mixed race sounds like it could be very eye-opening and I always enjoy a good murder mystery. Happy reading!

  2. There was a novella that came out after A Dark and Twisted Tide, called Here Be Dragons, which moved the story of Lacey and Mark on quite a bit – if you get time it might be worth reading it before the new one… 🙂

  3. Raceless looks fascinating it’s on my radar so I’ll be interested in your thoughts on it. I was reading The Virago Book of Women Travellers in the week, and have moved onto Foula, by Sheila Gear, about living on a remote Shetland island, which is wonderful, and a NetGalley book whose name escapes me (good work). Finally reviewed two books for Shiny New Books which I’d been putting off a bit, which feels good.

    • Raceless is really good. I’m reading it slowly as I’m finding it’s giving me a lot to think about, especially in relation to my mixed race cousin and all the struggles he has had through his young life. Foula sounds really interesting, I hope you’re enjoying it.
