This week I’m trying something new. I’ve seen the WWW Wednesday reading meme on quite a few of the fab blogs I follow and love having a nosy at what other people are reading so thought I’d give it a go! Hosted by Sam from Taking on a World of Words, if you’d also like to join in, all you have to do is answer the three questions below and pop your blog link on Sam’s weekly post in the comments.
So, here we go…
What are you currently reading?
Ha yes, that is a question. I am usually the type of person who finishes a book before moving onto the next, but I’ve currently got 3 on the go. One non-fiction – Notes on a Nervous Planet by Matt Haig. This was a definite Twitter influence, as I kept seeing so may good tweets about it. So far, I have to agree with them! I’m also enjoying The Haunting of Henry Twist by Rebecca F. John but have had to temporarily pause that as the new Sophie Hannah (writing as Agatha Christie) book, The Mystery of Three Quarters popped onto my NetGalley shelf. As a big Christie fan, the temptation to start this immediately was one I couldn’t resist!
What did you recently finish reading?
The Craftsman by Sharon Bolton. This was a great, great read that combines a clever murder mystery with witchcraft – exploring how women are victimised and stereotyped, both for their gender in general and especially if they identify as a witch.
What do you think you’ll read next?
I recently went to the Greenwich Book Festival and saw a talk by Angie Thomas. I had, of course, heard of her book, The Hate U Give, but not yet read it. After hearing her discuss with such passion and intelligence about what inspired her to write it, it has zoomed up my TBR list and is definitely going to be the next one I start.
