What I’m Reading – WWW Wednesday: 13th November 2019

Oh, hello November’s WWW Wednesday post! This is a weekly meme hosted by Sam over at Taking on a World of Words. If you’re curious about what other people are reading right now too, join in! All you have to do is answer the three bookish questions below and pop your blog link on Sam’s weekly post in the comments.

So, this week…

/ WHAT ARE YOU READING NOW?

I’m quite excited to be working through my little stack of 2020 proofs and Saving Missy by Beth Morrey is what I’m on right now. It’s a character story, telling the tale of how lonely, widowed Missy (in her 70s) reignites some joy in her life. It has a very touching tone and I couldn’t help but care for Missy straight away. Very much enjoying it so far!

/ WHAT HAVE YOU RECENTLY READ?

I still find myself randomly thinking about The Familiars by Stacey Halls, which I read a few weeks ago. Told from the POV of Fleetwood Shuttleworth, it blends real facts surrounding the Pendle witch trials of 1612 with the fictional story of Fleetwood and her quest to have a baby.

/ WHAT WILL YOU READ NEXT?

My library hold for the much talked about Three Women by Lisa Taddeo has just arrived, so I’m going to crack on with this next. Non-fiction, it follows the lives of – funnily enough – three women – for ten years:

‘All Lina wanted was to be desired. How did she end up in a marriage with two children and a husband who wouldn’t touch her? All Maggie wanted was to be understood. How did she end up in a relationship with her teacher and then in court, a hated pariah in her small town? All Sloane wanted was to be admired. How did she end up a sexual object of men, including her husband, who liked to watch her have sex with other men and women? Three Women, which was nearly a decade in the making, is a staggering work of non-fiction for our times.’

What do you think? I’m very intrigued by this book and feel it’s time to add some non-fiction into my reading mix. I’d love to know what you’re reading this week – let me know below!
