Welcome to my January WWW Wednesday: This is a weekly meme but I’m doing it monthly, so whatever works best for you! If you’d like to join in, it’s hosted by Sam over at Taking on a World of Words and all you have to do is answer the three questions below, then pop your blog link on Sam’s weekly post in the comments.
WHAT ARE YOU READING NOW?
After seeing great things about it on various book blogs at the end of last year, I got The Corset by Laura Purcell from the library and so far (I’m about 1/3 of the way through), it’s everything I wanted it to be. It’s a dark Victorian tale told from the point-of-view of two women: Ruth, in prison and accused of murder and Dorothea, a wealthy lady who visits prisoners as part of her charity work. Their paths cross, but I can’t yet see the outcome. I love it when you have no idea where a book will go but are completely sucked in!
WHAT HAVE YOU RECENTLY READ?
If you’re looking for a new audiobook, then let me point you in the direction of A Keeper. Written and read by Graham Norton. Yes, the TV presenter. If you haven’t read this or his previous book, Holding, then you might not know that he’s a truly enchanting writer. A Keeper follows the residents of a small Irish village and there’s the perfect amount of intrigue, suspense and moments that make your eyebrows shoot up to keep you hooked. Plus, I will never tire of the familiar, dulcet tones of Graham Norton reading to me. I wish he could narrate all my audiobooks.
WHAT WILL YOU READ NEXT?
I got a surprise Christmas gift of Uncommon Type by Tom Hanks – a collection of 17 short stories written by the actor. I’m very intrigued to give these a read. Also, it’s been quite some time since I read some short stories, so it’s definitely time to fix that.
I’d love to know what you’re reading this week, let me know below!
