So, this week…
WHAT ARE YOU READING NOW?
Very excitingly, the new Jess Kidd book, Things in Jars, recently popped onto my NetGalley shelf and as a big fan of her previous two novels, Himself and The Hoarder, I couldn’t wait to start reading this. Thankfully, it has not so far let me down: Bridie Devine is a private detective, but in 1863 this was a very unusual job for a woman. She is looking for a kidnapped child, who is more than a little strange. It has intrigue, ghosts and as per Kidd’s other books, is written in such a charming, lyrical style.
WHAT HAVE YOU RECENTLY READ?
In my previous WWW post, I mentioned I was reading The Corset by Laura Purcell and at the 1/3 of the way through point was loving it. I’ve now finished it and OH MY GOD, it was amazing. To quote from my review of it: ‘I am not being hyperbolic when I say that I adored every single page of this book. It contained all the elements I personally love in a story; intrigue around the lead characters, a murder mystery, unexpected emotional twists and an ending that leaves you closing the book wishing there were more pages to read.’ As you might have picked up on, I highly recommend it!
WHAT WILL YOU READ NEXT?
I’m not actually sure… I’m having a case of TBR trouble at the moment (#bookwormproblems), as in it’s risen to insane levels and I just don’t know which book to read or listen to next! Looking through my list, I’m drawn to non-fiction, so may well go for Becoming by Michelle Obama. I think she’s a very inspiring woman and would love to know more about her life and what makes her tick.
I’d love to know what you’re reading this week, let me know below!
