WWW WEDNESDAY – 24th January 2018

EtheringtonHeaders- WWW Wednesday

WWW is hosted by Taking on a World of Words. Each Wednesday book enthusiasts share their reads by answering three questions:

The Three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?

What do you think you’ll read next?

I’m getting back into the swing of things since the beginning of the New Year now! Although my reading this week has been a little slow, but I’ve managed to make a little, tiny, microscopic amount of progress with my TBR pile. Don’t worry – I’ve given myself a pat on the back so you don’t have to.

I’m just over halfway through Cartes Postales by Victoria Hislop. It’s almost a combination of a short story collection and a novel. There are a lot of stories running through it so it doesn’t feel like something you can just read huge amounts of in one sitting without all the stories blurring together. I’m honestly not enjoying it as much as The Island and it feels a little stiff in places, but I should finish it by the end of the week!

What did you recently finish reading?

I went to Liverpool last weekend and read The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness on the train up. It’s the second novel I’ve read by Ness and now my favourite. Such a great read, it’s not afraid to make fun of itself. The fun tropes are balanced out by serious issues. It’s the best portrayal I’ve read of OCD, and perfectly encapsulates that battle between the rational part of your mind and your compulsion. I couldn’t read it fast enough. I can’t wait to review it on the blog next week!

A very lovely friend of mine gave me From Esme with Love and Squalor by J D Salinger when I left Liverpool to start my internship, and I think it’s about high time I read it. I’m toying with the idea of trying to read The Catcher in the Rye again this year – I think I might be ready for it.

What are you reading this week?
