WWW Wednesday: 27th September 2017

The WWW Wednesday meme is currently hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words and is a great way to do a weekly update on what you’ve been reading and what you have planned.

WWW Wednesday

To take part all you have to do is answer the following three questions:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you’ll read next?

Currently Reading

InvictusAt long last I’ve finally started reading Invictus by Ryan Graudin. I received this from NetGalley and have had it on my want to read as soon as possible list for a while but was putting it off until I had the time to savor it. I’m currently around halfway through and it’s everything I was hoping it would be. There’s just something instantly likeable about Graudin’s writing and I love pretty much every character. I kind of want to join the crew and go travelling in time with them.

Recently Finished

Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine

Last week was pretty hectic with the bathroom and boiler installation but other than a few minor issues that still need to be sorted I think it’s more or less over (thank goodness). I did end up doing quite a bit of hanging about the house but there was a lot of noise and interruptions so not a huge amount of reading.

I did however manage to finish a couple of books, the first of which was Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman. This was the pick for my real life book club and I have to say I absolutely loved it. I listened to it on audio but I’m very tempted to buy a physical copy as I think it’s one I’m going to pick up time and time again. It’s so funny and heartbreaking and completely real. It’s possibly my favorite book of the year and I would recommend to everyone.

Cold Blood (Detective Erika Foster, #5)The second book finished this week was Cold Blood by Robert Bryndza which I received from NetGalley. This is the fifth book in the Detective Erika Foster series (although it could be read as a standalone) and again Erika and the team are on the hunt for a serial killer or could that be killers. I really like this series and this book was a very enjoyable read. Erika is a great character and I love her attitude. It does suffer from some of the same issues as previous books (silly little irritating mistakes and inconsistencies) which kind of forces me to take the rating down but it’s still a great read and a series I’d recommend.

Reading Next

I posted a Fall TBR list at the end of last week so my next reads will almost definitely come from that (well unless I go to the bookshop). Given my current and last couple of books I think it’s time for some romance or fantasy so will probably go for either The Rules of Magic by Alice Hoffman or Moonlight over Manhattan by Sarah Morgan both of which are from NetGalley.

The Rules of MagicMoonlight Over Manhattan (From Manhattan with Love, #6)

Have you read any of the books on my list this week? Any others you’d recommend? As always please feel free to leave comments and links below.

Happy Wednesday Everyone!!!

    • Eleanor Oliphant was sooo good. Possibly an all time fave but definitely one of the best books I’ve read this year.

      I’m looking forward to Rules of Magic too. Have you read Practical Magic? I’ve only watched the film.


  1. I’m glad you”re having such a great reading week/month so far, Ali! 🙂
    All of these sound really interesting, and I’ve had my eye on Graudin for quite a long time but never actually tried anything by her yet…. I’m hoping to change that!


  2. I have Eleanor Oliphant on my TBR and I’m glad you loved it! I’ve also read two Erika Foster books, both I enjoyed, but I’m not sure when I’ll be picking up the third one.
    Happy reading! 🙂
