WWW Wednesday- 20th May

I haven’t done one of these posts in such a long time. So I figured I’d have a go. It’s just a little update where I’m at with my reading.

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?

The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins. Well I have to be honest and say I’m not reading this. I’m still waiting for it to arrive. I’m literally sitting looking out of the window waiting for the postman to arrive. But I will be picking it up as soon as it arrives. I’ve been waiting for this book for a long time.

What have you finished reading recently?

Shuggie Bain by Douglas Stuart. I finished this late last night as I couldn’t put it down. While it took me a little while to get into it, once I did it was brilliant. It really did break my heart. This one is out August 6th.

What are you reading next?

I always find this question so hard because I never know what to read next, but I think I’m going to try and get through my arcs ‘The Great Godden’ by… I’ve heard nothing but good things and I want to experience it for myself. It’s out July 7th.

So that’s it, that’s my reading week I guess. I wonder how long it will take me to read ‘The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes’. I plan on doing nothing else.

Let me know what you’re reading.

Until the next review

WWW Wednesday -11th December

It’s that time of the month where I try to do one of these WWW Wednesday posts. I missed November but I shall try again. It hasn’t been a great start to the month, with only one book being read so far (what’s happened to me?).

I have feeling this month will be a slow month because I work in a restaurant and this time of year gets extremely busy.

But I’ve started my second book, and I’ll keep going and try and get as many read as possible.

So let’s get started

What are you currently reading?

‘Your House Will Pay’ by Steph Cha was kindly gifted to me by the wonderful Faber & Faber Books. I’m not very far in but I can say I’m enjoying it so far. It’s atmospheric and I’m really intrigued to see where this novel goes. It’s out January 16th 2020.

What have you finished reading recently?

I’ve recently finished reading ‘Infinity Son’ by Adam Silvera. This is one of the most hyped books of next year and I didn’t like it. Is it too strong to say I hated it? It was a real mess. It’s comes out January 14th 2020.

What are your going to read next?

Next up is ‘The Companion’ by Kim Taylor Blakemore. This is a Netgalley book that I have no recollection for requesting but I must have so I’ll have to read it. It’s Historical Fiction (probably why I requested it) so maybe I’ll enjoy it.

So this has been my reading journey so far this month. What’s yours been like. Let me know.

Until the next review

WWW Wednesday- 22nd May

Welcome to another WWW Wednesday. This is just a little blog post that I (and many others) use to show how our reading is going. I first saw this on Mani’s fantastic blog, which you can check out here.

I’ve been trying to read as much a possible, but I’m a slow reader, so I don’t get that much read.

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?

Right now, I’m currently reading ‘Another Life’ by Robert Haller. It’s a Netgalley book, that comes out 4th June. So far I’m 40% of the way through, and I’m enjoying it. It’s not the best book I’ve ever read, but it’s ok.

What have you finished reading recently?

I finished ‘The Disappearance’ by Katherine Webb. It was absolutely fantastic. One of my favourite reads of the year, if not my favourite. It came out May 16th. Click on the picture for full review.

Next I read, ‘Edge of Nowhere’ by C.H. Armstrong. It comes out 1st June. I started off enjoying this book, but in the end it was way too depressing. I liked it, don’t get me wrong, but it just needed a bit more joy.

What are you going to read next?

Well, next up I’ll be reading ‘Alex in Wonderland’ by Simon James Green. I never usually know what I’m going to read next, but I received this from a publisher and I can’t wait to read it. It’s an LGBT book and it feels like it’s been ages since I’ve read one so I’m excited.

After this, I think I’m going to read ‘A Very Large Expanse Of Sea’ by Tahereh Mafi. I’ve had this book on my shelf for a while. I’m gonna treat myself to this book before a read a few more ARC’s.

Well, that’s it for me. I hope you are all enjoying what you’re reading. And I hope you feel free to do this post.

Until the next review

WWW Wednesday – 8th May

Welcome to another blog post of WWW Wednesday. These are just little blog posts where I (and many others) share what we’ve been reading. Again, we’ve been having beautiful weather in the U.K., but I’m still managing to get my reading done.

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?

Right now I’m currently reading ‘The Disappearance’ by Katherine Webb. I’m a huge fan of Katherine’s work. I own all her books. This one is just a good. It’s comes out May 16th. I was lucky enough to be given a copy of this book from Katherine Webb. She even signed it! Check this one out.

What have you finished reading recently?

I’ve finished two books this month so far and I actually enjoyed both of them.

First up was ‘Once More Unto The Breach’ by Meghan Holloway. This was a Netgalley book and it was fantastic. Such a great historical fiction novel. Great writing, story and characters. This once comes out May 14th.

Secondly was ‘Farzaneh and the Moon’ by Matt Wilven. This book was sent to me by Legend Press. The writing in this book was beautiful. So atmospheric, such intriguing characters. This once comes out May 15th.

What are you going to read next?

This is such a tough question for me. I never know what I’m going to pick next. All the books I said I’d read last time I didn’t. But now, I haven’t got any ARC’s to read. Maybe my TBR pile might start going down? I don’t think so.

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

Secondly, there’s ‘The Song of Achilles’ by Madeline Miller. 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. Maybe I’ll read this after ‘An American Marriage’

Well, I hope you all enjoy what you’re reading currently and feel free to do your own version of this post.

Until the next review
