WWW Wednesday: 9th October 2019

The WWW Wednesday meme is 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 ReadingHow to Fail: Everything I’ve Ever Learned From Things Going Wrong

I haven’t really been in a reading mood over the last couple of days, a combination of work stress and general tiredness, so I’ve been dipping in and out of How to Fail by Elizabeth Day. As someone who is a bit of a perfectionist and therefore not able to cope will with failure (or just not being very good at something) this has been a pretty eye opening read. It’s full of anecdotes about failure from the various celebrities the author has interviewed but what I’m loving the most are the author’s own personal stories, they’re very relatable. Unfortunately my library loan is up soon so I don’t think I’ll manage to finish it but I’ll definitely be putting a hold on it so I can get it back out again (or maybe I’ll just buy it).

Recently Finished

The Secret of Cold Hill (House on Cold Hill, #2)

As always, the second I do a TBR post I seem to lose my reading mojo so only managed to finish one book this week, The Secret of Cold Hill by Peter James. I actually finished it late on Friday night but ended up reading literally nothing over the weekend (I may have gone on a bit of a netflix/movie binge watch). The Secret of Cold Hill is a classic haunted house story but the author has brought it up to date by setting it in an ultra high tech home kitted out with every gadget you could ever want. It was a completely addictive and often creepy read but I’m not sure it’s one I’ll necessary remember.  You can read my whole review here.

Reading Next

I posted my Spooktober TBR at the end of last week so I’m going to try and keep making progress on it. Given my current slumpiness I think I’m probably going to pick up the next Charley Davidson book next or maybe Victoria Schwab’s City of Ghosts.

The Curse of Tenth Grave (Charley Davidson, #10)City of Ghosts (Cassidy Blake, #1)

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’m only around a third of the way through but I am finding it fascinating reading. It’s a bit of a mix of self help and memoir. It’s helping that I feel like I have a lot in common with the author, it’s very relatable

    • I really need to read it. This is the second time ive borrowed it and it looks like I’m going to have to put a hold on to get it out again.

      I’m enjoying it but I struggle to sit down and read non fic in one go. Maybe I’d do better with the audio.


  1. Your post is basically my mood this week, too. xD I’ve been having such a slow reading week, threatening a slump, and I’ve just managed to pull myself out today. I hope you have the same luck! I plan on reading City of Ghosts, too! It’s supposed to be really good, and I’ve been looking forward to it. Hope you enjoy! Happy reading.

    Here’s my WWW post.
