WWW Wednesday #12 – 21 April 2021

It’s WWW Wednesday time.

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?

This One Sky Day by Leone Ross

Still finding I’m slowing down reading this. It’s a Pigeonhole read, and if it wasn’t for the stave format I would have given up on this by now. I’m over halfway through and still have no clue what is going on.

One of Them by Musa Okwonga

Pigeonhole again. This is a fascinating memoir about a young black man from a working class London suburb who went to Eton. I’m a bit behind on the chapters for this as I’m trying to get One Sky Day finished/over with, but what I have read is really well written so I expect to catch up soon.

Notes on a Nervous Planet by Matt Haig

This is my new audiobook listen. Really good, an interesting topic to reflect on while walking the dog.

Raising Hell by Bryony Pearce

I’m reading this via NetGalley it’s a fun YA about magic, demons and zombies entering the world and the fight back against it.

Her Last Holiday by CL Taylor

A strong start to this Pigeonhole read. I’m only a few chapters in, but I have high hopes for this one.

False Witness by Karin Slaughter

This is due out on 24 June, so I’ll publish my full review nearer the time. I said in last week’s update that I was finding the covid references distracting. They continued for much of the book and set my teeth on edge every time, but the strength of the author means that by the end I was fully invested in the plot.

Greenwich Park by Katherine Faulkner

Finished this last night, will post a review later today or tomorrow.

Boys Don’t Cry by Fiona Scarlett

This starts on Pigeonhole today, but other than this one I’m planning to avoid starting anything new until I’ve cleared my current reading list a bit.

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.

  1. I’ve seen a lot of love for Greenwich Park so I hope you enjoyed it too. I have Matt Haig’s Midnight Library on my wishlist, for my next bookshop visit perhaps… By the way, glad to see I’m not alone in having several books on the go at once.

  2. I went down a bit of a Goodreads rabbit-hole after reading your comment about False Witness. I’ve never read anything by Karin Slaughter but False Witness sounds good. Hope you have a good week!
