WWW Wednesday: 10th May 2023

It’s May WWW Wednesday time! This 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.


I’m in the mood for a sun-drenched book as spring is (meant to be anyway) here. Call Me By Your Name by Andre Aciman has been on my TBR for ages, so finally ticking it off the list. I’ve just started and feeling the heat already.


I devoured The Three of Us in one sitting. It’s a tight, taught domestic drama that takes place over an afternoon. Temi’s husband and best friend don’t get on and when they’re pushed, the secrets come spilling out… check out my full review here.


I love spooky historical dramas, so The Other Side of Mrs Wood by Lucy Barker is going straight on my TBR:

Mrs Wood is London’s premier medium. She has survived the competitive world of contacting the beyond where many others have failed, has avoided the slips that revealed others as frauds and is still hosting packed-out seances with the great and the good of Victorian society.

Yet, some of her patrons have recently cancelled their appointments. There are reports of American mediums who are materialising full spirits and audiences are no longer content with the knocking on tables and candle theatrics of years gone by. And then, at one of Mrs Wood’s routine gatherings, she hears something terrifying – faint, but unmistakable: a yawn.

Mrs Wood needs to spice up her brand. She decides to take on Emmie, a young protege, to join her show. But is Emmie the naive ingenue she seems to be? Or does she pose more of a threat to Mrs Wood’s reign as London’s most celebrated medium than Mrs Wood could ever have imagined?

Sounds enticing, yes?

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