WWW Wednesday: 3rd October 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 ReadingBroken Things

I started reading Broken Things by Lauren Oliver on Monday but have to confess I haven’t had much reading time so not much progress. I am however travelling through to Edinburgh today for work which is around an hour on the train each way so that should help. I mean I could probably do some work stuff but feel like I should be grabbing every reading opportunity I can get.

I also started reading The Quaker by Liam McIlvanney at the weekend but only made it around a third of the way through before I had to return to the library. I’m not happy as I was starting to get into it and it’s going to be at least 3 months before I get it back. I may just cave and buy it, even if it is kind of expensive.

On audio I’m still listening to Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Abertalli and am now around the halfway point. It’s an easy enough listen and the narrator is good it’s just not grabbing me for some reason.

Recently Finished

Love and Other Words

I’m in the process of buying and selling houses at the moment, so not much reading over the last week. Partly because I haven’t had a lot of time and partly because I can’t concentrate on anything. I did however manage to finish one book,  Love And Other Words by Christina Lauren, and I really enjoyed it. I should probably pay more attention to blurbs as I hadn’t realized it was more literary fiction than romance. It is however a wonderful story about the relationship between Macy and Elliot and is told in two timelines, now and 11+ years earlier. It’s very sweet but a little bit heartbreaking.

Reading Next

Not sure what I’m going to be in the mood to read next but I’ve been kind of tempted to pick up one of the older books on my TBR rather than an ARC although I did get one ARC last week I’ve been desperate to read.

What If It's UsA Discovery of Witches (All Souls, #1)More Happy Than Not

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 ❤

    • I find it okay. I can’t really read two books at the same time, my focus always sticks on one, but the different format helps. I also try to make them different genres so I’ll read a contemporary and listen to a fantasy. Makes it easier to keep them separate. I also have a really bad habit of listening to books I’ve previously read so already know the story.


      • I haven’t watched the show because they haven’t released it in US yet but I cannot wait! I definitely recommend reading the books first though, because there’s so much going on that I think they’ll have to leave some stuff out on the show.


  1. So gutted to hear you had to give The Quaker back before finishing it. I think you should read A Discovery of Witches next to get into the Halloween spirit early.

  2. “Love and other words” sounds like a lovely read, and the cover on “What if it’s us” has a really cute vibe. Hope you enjoy your reading this week x
    Good luck with the selling-and-buying house thing! Happy reading x


    • I’m starting to think I may have been better reading it than listening to it on audio. It’s making it feel longer and slower than it is I think. Was just listening to it in car though and it is picking up.


  3. I hope you will find time for Broken Things soon! It sounds like a good one… And I’m dying to get my hands on a copy of What If It’s Us. Have a wonderful week!
