WWW Wednesday – 24th April

Welcome to WWW Wednesday which is currently being hosted by… This is really just a little blog post to keep you updated on what’s going on with my reading life. We had beautiful weather here in the UK but I still managed to get some reading done. I mean, there’s always time for reading right?

I saw this over on Mani’s blog (Mani’s blog)and I just had to have a go! I hope you doesn’t mind and be sure to check out their blog! It’s amazing! Such a great variety of books

What is WWW Wednesday?

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme where all you have to do is answer three simple questions. Look at me using the word meme! I feel so young!

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What have you finished reading recently?
  • What are you planning to read next?

So let’s get started!

What are you currently reading?

Well right now I’m currently reading ‘The Tubman Command’ by Elizabeth Cobbs. I got this as an ARC via Netgalley. I’ve had it on my Dashboard for a while and I’ve really been looking forward to reading it. It’s Historical Fiction. It’s all Harriett Tubman freeing Slaves on her heroic quests. Now, I’m only 35% in but I thought it would be better. It’s seems to very historically accurate but it hasn’t captured her spirit, but we’ll wait and see. I’m not giving up on it!

What have you finished reading recently?

I finished ‘Dear Lily’ by Drew Davies. This was another Netgalley ARC. This was such a good book. I read it really quickly (which I never do). It’s written in the format of letters, it’s got great characters, a great story and it’s heartbreaking. It comes out 17th May.

What are you planning to read next?

This is such a tricky question for me. I never know what to read next. Ever. It’s a real problem for me. There’s a few options, so I guess I’ll share them. Hopefully this will help me decide.

First up is ‘An American Marriage’ by Tayari Jones. All I know about a book is it’s on Oprah’s bookclub and if it’s in Oprah’s bookclub it’s good enough for me.

Secondly, there’s ‘The Song of Achilles’ by … I’ll be honest, this is a strong contender. I’ve heard such amazing things about this book and I’m desperate to read it.

Thirdly, is the Goldfinch by ‘Donna Tartt’. I got this for my birthday and I can’t wait to read it. I feel like it’s become a modern classic (don’t come at me if you don’t agree)

Lastly, is ‘They Both Die At The End’ by Adam Silvera. I’ve had this on my TBR for nearly two years. I’ve been desperate to read it and I don’t know why I haven’t. Maybe because I think it’s going to break my heart.

Well that’s it from me. Feel free to play along!

Until the next review

  1. Song of Achilles is amazing and will leave you needing more like it (spoiler: you’re not going to be able to find anything that matches well enough)
    And They Both Die at the End will definitely make you cry


  2. I have a Song of Achilles on my TBR list and I really loved reading The Goldfinch. Hopefully you’ll enjoy that one and can’t wait to read your thoughts on it when you finish.


  3. I loved The Song of Achilles and They Both Die At The End, but SoA was one of my top reads last year. It destroyed me! I still have to finish The Goldfinch… It’s a serious tome 😅
