It’s WWW Wednesday and it’s March at last. It’s no longer pitch black when I walk the dog in the morning, and it’s actually felt warm a couple of days this week. Winter seems to be gone, for now at least.
WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam A. Stevens on Taking on a World of Words.
The three Ws are:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’re read next?
Plume by Will Wiles
I’m just under halfway through now. I’m not sure what to think of it, we’re mostly in the head of an alcoholic features writer who may or may not be hallucinating smoke and cockatoos.
Becoming by Michelle Obama
Still working my way through this audiobook on dog walks. There’s definitely more a focus on the personal than Barack’s autobiography. The beginning of their relationship which seemed to be summer up in a page or two by Barack, is being covered in more depth here
The Castaways by Lucy ClarkeThe first of three current Pigeonhole reads. The Castaways is about the survivors of a plane crash trapped on a deserted island, and the sister of one of them searching for her when new clues emerge two years after the crash. I’m enjoying it, and the Lost (TV series) vibes are purely my own associations. There are no polar bears or mysterious hatches – not yet anyway.
Light Perpetual by Francis SpuffordPigeonhole read number 2. An imagining of the lives of five imaginary children who died in a bombing in the original timeline of the book. The story follows them through various stages of their lives seeing what would have happened if they hadn’t died. An interesting concept, but I’m not sure where it’s going as yet.
Dog Days by Ericka WallerCurrent Pigeonhole read number 3. Not long started this so no firm impressions yet. Stories of different people, all with their own problems, and only connected by having or walking dogs.
The Friend by Charlie Gallagher
I’ll be publishing my full review nearer the publication date of 1 April. This was an enjoyable start to a planned new detective series and I’ll definitely be looking out for the sequel.
Truth Be Told by Kia AbdullahI finished this yesterday via Pigeonhole and I can’t recommend it highly enough. Big challenging issues wrapped in a compelling legal drama. Read my full review.
Silent Tide by Alex Scarrow
Girl in the Walls by AJ Gnuse
Have you read any of these? Do you have any recommendations for me to add to my TBR list? I’d love to hear from you in the comments.
