Welcome to this week’s WWW Wednesday post, a meme hosted by Sam over at Taking on a World of Words. Please go and have a look at everyone else is reading and make sure you post your own WWW in the comments so I can have a look.
The premise of the post is quite simple – answer the three Ws:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
What are you currently reading?
I have just started Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty. I’m about 100 pages in and I’m reserving judgement. I really didn’t like The Husband’s Secret because of the characters, and unfortunately, the characters in Big Little Lies are pretty much the same – middle class, beautiful, perfect, 40-something women. I’m hoping the story redeems this for me. Luckily, it’s a really easy read, so it shouldn’t take me long to get through. Not that I’m not enjoying it, it’s just annoying me a bit.
What did you recently finish reading?
I have just finished The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins (review coming soon). It was a good, solid thriller, but did leave me wanting slightly. It took me a whole week to finish, mainly because I wasn’t as gripped as I perhaps should have been. I do struggle with over-hyped books in general and it takes something special to really wow me. This just didn’t quite hit the mark.
What do you think you’ll read next?
I’ll see how I feel after Big Little Lies, but I have a feeling I’ll read A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness next. It’s not my usual sort of read, but it was lent to me by Juliet, who assured me it is very good and very quick, so that might be something I race through over the weekend. After that, I think I might be in the mood for something historical. I’ve had The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah for a while, and keep putting it off, but I think now might be the time to give it a go. This time last year, all I read was historical fiction and I really want to get back into it.
