Happy Wednesday Everyone!
Welcome back to WWW Wednesday. WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted by Sam over at Taking on a World of Words.
I’m rapidly accumulating books to review for 2019 – I can already tell it’s going to be a very busy year.
That being the case, I’m just going to jump straight in.
What is WWW Wednesday?
For WWW Wednesday you answer the following questions:
- What are you currently reading?
- What have you recently finished reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
What are you currently reading?
Let’s start this post off with something controversial. If you read last week’s WWW Wednesday you may have noticed Tara Westover’s Educated was on that list, and still is on my ‘currently reading’ list. This is because I am struggling, really struggling, to finish this book. I’m about 75% of the way there and I had a conversation earlier this week with some of my book blogger friends about whether to DNF it or keep going.
I’ve decided to keep going, reading a chapter or two in work each day during my lunch. I won’t say any more at the moment, but I’ve got a feeling this is going to make for an interesting review…! (Make sure to let me know in the comments below if you DNF’d or didn’t get on with this book!).
Moving swiftly on, I’m making slow but forward progress with Joe Moran’s First You Write a Sentence. I feel like my writing could be improved and Joe has the most eloquent but concise writing style. I’m enjoying this book so far and my intention is to really absorb it rather than just plow through to get it read, so it might be on my ‘currently reading’ list for a while.
Last but by no means least, I’m reading Sinéad O’Hart’s The Star-Spun Web. I am so grateful to Stripes Publishing for sending me an early copy of this book which I am loving so far.
What have you recently finished reading?
Two Can Keep A Secret by Karen McManus is my first five-star review of 2019. You can check out my mini review here.
Read this book. You need to read it. The Year After You by Nina de Pass is phenomenal. Pop back to my blog on 5th February 2019 to find out why.
Michelle Obama’s Becoming is the best audiobook I’ve listened to in a long time. Fascinating, inspiring, and bound to make you cry. I loved it.
What do you think you’ll read next?
I have a huge stack of books to be read for 7th February, and among them is Sara Barnard’s Fierce Fragile Hearts. I’m really looking forward to reading it but have not read Beautiful Broken Things, so I’m hoping it’ll make sense as a standalone book.
What’s on your TBR list? Let me know in the comments below and don’t forget to share a link to your own WWW Wednesday.
