WWW Wednesday: 15th March 2023

It’s March WWW Wednesday time! This WWW post is a weekly (but I tend to do it monthly) challenge, 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 put your blog link on Sam’s weekly post in the comments.


A House for Alice by Diana Evans. I’ve previously read Ordinary People and A House for Alice is a sequel of sorts, or at least some characters reappear, I’ve heard. As you may be able to tell, I’ve only just picked this up, but looking forward to getting into it in the next few days.


The Close by Jane Casey is a very clever crime thriller I like to refer to as three crimes and some sexual tension. It’s actually book 10 in the Maeve Kerrigan series, but it was my introduction to the character and there is a good amount of back-story so you understand the key points of what’s happened in the previous books. It’s such a great read – check out my full review here.


I really like the sound of Rosewater by Liv Little, the blurb goes a little like this:

Elsie is a sexy, funny, and fiercely independent woman in south London. But, at just 28, she is also tired. Though she spends her days writing tender poetry in her journal, her nights are spent working long hours for minimum wage at a neighbourhood dive bar. Not even sleeping with her alluring coworker, Bea, can quell her existential dread.

The difficulty of being estranged from her family, struggle of being continually rejected from jobs, and fear of never making money doing what she loves is too great. But Elsie is determined to keep the faith, for a little longer at least. Things will surely turn around. They have to.

But when Elsie is suddenly evicted from her social housing, her fragile foundations threaten to collapse entirely. With nowhere left to go, Elsie turns to her childhood friend, Juliet, for help.

Featuring the incredible poetry of Kai-Isaiah Jamal, Rosewater is a story of intergenerational love, healing, and one woman’s journey home. A remarkable debut by an exciting new talent, readers are sure to be enchanted by Liv Little’s distinctive and captivating contemporary voice.

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