What is WWW Wednesday?

It’s a weekly meme that I first discovered on Roachies Reviews blog, and that is originally hosted by Taking on a World of Words.

All you have to do is answer 3 simple questions:

What are you currently reading?

What have you recently finished reading?

What do you plan to read next?

So, without further ado here’s my WWW Wednesday for this week.

Currently Reading

The Song of Achilles

The Songs of Achilles by Madeline Miller – This was our book club read for December. I was hoping to have it finished by now but I haven’t had a chance to pick it up properly as I’ve been concentrating on my January TBR. So, far I’m really liking it. I am aiming to finish it by the weekend as our book club meeting is on Tuesday, it’s going to be close.

 

Imaginary FriendImaginary Friend by Stephen Chbosky –  I’ve had to wait so long to get this book from my library but it finally arrived and it’s perfect timing. I started this one Monday evening so haven’t read much. I’ve heard so many great things about this book and I’m really hoping it won’t disappoint. I’m reading this one as part of the 2020 TBR Reading Challenge created by Mina @ Stacked Reviews. (Prompts Book over 500 pages & Book set in different Continents)

An Anonymous Girl by Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen – I started this book late last night as part of a buddy read. I’ve only read 10 pages so far.

 

Recently Finished

Since my last post on 18th December 2019 I have finished the following books in the month of December.

THE OTHER PEOPLE

 

The Other People by C.J.Tudor – This was my most anticipated eARC read for 2019, and I have to say it didn’t disappoint. A must read!!

 

The Tattooist of Auschwitz

 

The Tattooists of Auschwitz by Heather Morris – I brought this earlier on in 2019 but kept putting off reading it. But I finally did, and it didn’t disappoint. I was quite hard to read at times but I still whizzed through it.

DJINN PATROL ON THE PURPLE LINE

 

Djinn Patrol On The Purple Line by Deepa Anaphora – This was an eARC that I received from NetGalley. This one started off really interesting but then I lost interesting and ended up being an Okish read.

I Am Pilgrim

 

I Am Pilgrim by Terry Hayes – This book took me over 2 months to finish, I kept getting side tracked with other books. I have mixed feelings about this book. I did enjoy it but I feel I need to re-read it again without distractions from other books.

 

Books below are the ones I’ve managed to finish so far for the 2020 TBR READING CHALLENGE which started on January 1st 2020:

Metamorphosis

Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka – I’ve wanted to read this book for so long but never actually got around to it. For some reason I thought it was a big book, no idea why, but it turns out it’s quite short. I finished it in a day. It was pretty good, which also surprised me. (Prompt Book from the Rory Gilmore Challenge)

The Diary of a Young Girl

 

The Diary Of A Young Girl by Anne Frank – I actually ended up listening to this one on audiobook, as it was a re-read. The last time I read this book was over 20 years ago. This is another sad one but I loved reading it the first time and I loved it even more this time around. (Prompt Book originally written in a foreign Language.

The Witches

 

The Witches by Raold Dahl – This was another re-read. This was one of my favourites Roald Dahl books when I was younger. (Prompt Novel that will Get A Movie Adaption in 2020)

The Memory Wood

 

The Memory Wood by Sam Lloyd –  I received this ARC thanks to LoveReading UK. It was a really fast paced read that I really enjoyed. (Prompt A 2020 Release)

The War of the Worlds

 

War Of the World by H.G. Wells – This was another book I’ve wanted to read since watching the movie but I never really got around to it until now. It was very different to the movie. I listened to the audiobook for this one as I couldn’t find my copy. I thought I had it on my old Kindle but I can’t seem to find it. (Prompt Book by A dead author)

I will have review for all of these up very soon.
