It’s my last WWW Wednesday post of the year – of the decade, in fact! 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?
Earlier this year I adored reading The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary and was delighted the other day when a proof of her next book, The Switch landed on my NetGalley shelf. I’ve just started it and although the characters and plot are very different, I’m getting the same warm tone from it, so looking forward to seeing where the plot goes.
/ WHAT HAVE YOU RECENTLY READ?
The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides – I was sucked in by the hype, but did it live up to said hype for me? Well… not quite. It took its inspiration so directly from an Agatha Christie classic (I won’t say which one as that’s a real spoiler) that that kind of dampened it for me BUT it was a page turner (well, listen as it was an audiobook for me) and I can completely see why it’s been touted as such a good thriller.
/ WHAT WILL YOU READ NEXT?
Like a lot of people, I read and loved This is Going to Hurt by Adam Kay so was very pleased to hear he’d released a second book, also recounting stories from his time as a junior doctor. At 143 pages, it’s in novella territory, but I’m just happy to read more from Adam. Plus it counts as my topical festive read. The blurb:
‘Twas The Nightshift Before Christmas is the hilarious, poignant and entertaining story of the life of a junior doctor at the most challenging time of the year. With twenty-five tales of intriguing, shocking and incredible Christmas incidents, the British public will finally appreciate the sacrifices made and the challenges faced by the unsung heroes of the NHS.’
What do you think? Did you read Adam’s first book and fancy this one too?
I’d love to know what you’re reading this week – let me know below! And Merry Christmas to one and all!
