What I’m Reading – WWW Wednesday: 19th February 2020

It’s time for… February’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?

Frankissstein: A Love Story by Jeanette Winterson. This is my first Jeanette Winterson book and so far, it’s brilliant. Clever, funny, thoughtful; the plot goes from Mary Shelley dreaming up her famous story to the future of robotics. Unlike anything I’ve read, which is a very good thing. Can’t wait to see how it all pans out.

/ WHAT HAVE YOU RECENTLY READ?

I was kindly sent a book a bit out of my comfort zone and it’s been one of my surprise amazing reads of the year (so far). Beast by Matt Wesolowski is part horror, part thriller and all addictive. It takes the form of a podcast transcript, for a contemporary spin on things.

/ WHAT WILL YOU READ NEXT?

You know what, I’m feeling it’s time for a little Agatha Christie. Controversially, I fancy a stand alone read with neither Poirot or Marple for my first Christie of 2020, so think I’ll go for Endless Night:

“When penniless Michael Rogers discovers the beautiful house at Gypsy’s Acre and then meets the heiress Ellie, it seems that all his dreams have come true at once. But he ignores an old woman’s warning of an ancient curse, and evil begins to stir in paradise. As Michael soon learns: Gypsy’s Acre is the place where fatal ‘accidents’ happen.”

What do you think – tempted by the sound of this one?

I’d love to know what you’re reading this week – let me know below!

  1. Great selection of books! I really want to read Frankissstein, it does indeed sound uique. I absolutely loved Endless Night. It’s quite different from most of Christie’s work – much more eerie and spine-tingling. Enjoy!

  2. I’ve not heard of that Agatha Christie but then I didn’t really know she’d written stand alones. I thought they were all either Marple or Poirot. shows how little I know of her work!
