Welcome to April’s WWW Wednesday post. This is a weekly meme (but I tend to do it monthly) hosted by Sam 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.
/ WHAT ARE YOU READING NOW?
One of the reasons I love this community is all the great book recommendations from fellow book bloggers and reviewers I’ve had over the years. Someone I’ve got some recent fab reads from is Simon Savidge of Savidge Reads. He has a YouTube channel and recently spoke about The Weekend by Australian author, Charlotte Wood, so I’m giving it a go right now. I really like the way Charlotte writes and her nuanced story three friends coming together after the death of a mutual close friend has drawn me in so far.
/ WHAT HAVE YOU RECENTLY READ?
If you’re in the mood for something a little different, try Come Again by Robert Webb. I recently read this and it was 100% not what I was expecting – in a brilliant way! It’s an emotional, time-travelling, sort-of-thriller that successfully blends lots of genres.
/ WHAT WILL YOU READ NEXT?
I still like dropping in comfort reads every now and again and although Agatha Christie books have a lot of murder and intrigue, there is something about her tone of voice that I find so soothing – despite the sometimes grisly plotlines! So, I think I’ll try Evil Under the Sun next, a Hercule Poirot mystery:
‘Set at the Jolly Roger, a posh vacation resort for the rich and famous on the southern coast of England, Evil Under the Sun is one of Agatha Christie’s most intriguing mysteries.
When a gorgeous young bride is brutally strangled to death on the beach, only Hercule Poirot can sift through the secrets that shroud each of the guests and unravel the macabre mystery at this playground by the sea.‘
What do you think? I really hope it ends up being another classic Agatha read! Let me know what you’re reading this week, I’m always on the lookout for a great new book.
