WWW Wednesday: 26th September 2018

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 ReadingLove and Other Words

After claiming to be reading it in last week’s post I have to confess I only got around to picking up Love And Other Words by Christina Lauren yesterday. Needless to say I’m only a couple of chapters in and not much has happened but I have a good feeling about it.

On audio I’ve been listening to Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Abertalli. This is a (sort of) sequel to Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda (I refuse to call it Love, Simon) and follows best friend Leah. It’s fairly early days but so far so good. It hasn’t really grabbed me yet and it’s not clear where it’s going but yeah, it’s okay.

Recently FinishedNo One Cancels Christmas

I have not had a very good week reading wise. Between sorting out the sale of my home, volunteering at Bloody Scotland and things getting very busy at work I’ve been really stressed and tired so finding it difficult to concentrate on anything. I did however have a day off on Monday and decided to make it a lazy day. I stayed in bed pretty much all morning just reading and finished No One Cancels Christmas by Zara Stoneley. I’d requested this from NetGalley as I really enjoyed her last book The Wedding Date and I’m always up for a Christmassy rom com (even in September). I can’t say I liked this one quite as much as The Wedding Date but it was a nice, easy read so was probably the right book for me. It’s a lot predictable and has many of the usual Christmas romance tropes but who cares.

Reading Next

I still feel like I’m struggling to focus on anything much at the moment so I’m probably going to be sticking with lighter reads for a bit. I will however be reading what I feel like though so who knows I may suddenly be in the mood for a horror or thriller. I am thinking one of the following.

The Christmas SistersBroken ThingsA House of GhostsThe Twisted Tree

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 Reading ❤

  1. I have a copy of A House of Ghosts as well and looking forward to reading it, although it won’t be for a while as I have a few other books on my reading schedule before that. I’m trying to read books by the author’s I’ll be seeing or who are appearing at Henley Literary Festival, which starts on Saturday.

    • I didn’t love Simon as much as everyone else seemed to but omg I just watched the film 2 days ago and it is brilliant. I think the problem with Leah is Leah. She’s just not that likeable. It could be the narration that’s making it seem that way though.

    • Thanks, it seems unlikely as I have just had my offer on a house accepted so looks like I’m moving on the 2nd November :/ Think I’m going to be reading less.

      Leah’s been okay. Not sure why but I haven’t been enjoying as much as Abertalli’s other books


  2. I’m reading Christina Lauren as well right now – although I keep getting distracted by other books. I fully understand busy life taking away from reading time. It sucks sometimes. I also enjoy reading Christmas books all year round, so no judgement here. I’m looking forward to hearing what you think of “Broken Things” when you get to it. I am going to try to read “Rooms” by her soon. Here is my WWW post: https://greatmorrisonmigration.wordpress.com/2018/09/26/www-wednesdays-september-26-2018/
