WWW Wednesday is hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words! All you have to do is answers the following three questions:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
I have heard wonderful things about Ishiguro’s writing, and it seems as though Never Let Me Go is his is most popular book. He just won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2017, and that made me want to read his work even more. I was surprised to find out that this book is SciFi but that made me even more excited!
The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead
The Underground Railroad was wonderful, and I believe that it deserves all of the hype and awards that it has received. I have a lot of thoughts about it, and will be posting a review on Sunday so keep an eye out for that if you are interested!
The Uncommon Type by Tom Hanks
I just finished this book last night, and overall, I liked it! The stories were simple and about everyday humans- which I actually appreciated. There were a few stories that add a touch of SciFi and time travel which was a nice surprise. It was interesting to read this short story collection knowing that Tom Hanks is the author because I truly feel like his personally comes through! I think it would be excellent as an audiobook!
Sing Unburied Sing by Jesmyn Ward
I have heard so many excellent things about this book so I am so happy that I finally have my hands on a copy! It sounds really beautiful and I am looking forward to reading it.
If you have read any of these books I would love to know! I am really curious to see if anyone else has read Uncommon Type and to know your thoughts on it!

I’ve been eyeing the Tom Hanks book since it was announced. I’m going to have to grab the audio to listen to while I drive.
Happy Reading 🙂
I thank that will be fun. He’s got a great voice!
I really want to read the underground railroad! Glad you liked it
It was really great!
i’m glad you liked “uncommon type”. the audiobook was fantastic <3
I want to listen to it on audio one day!
yes, you should! 🙂
I loved the Underground Railroad too. I thought Never Let Me Go was really good, but not quite amazing. And, Sing, Unburied Sing is high on my TBR list. I look forward to hearing how you like it.
My WWW is coming soon but I’m reading In Ryan’s bed by Tijan. Happy Wednesday!
Ohh going to have to look that one up!
I read Never Let Me Go a few years ago and remember it as not an easy read but really brilliant. I hope you enjoy.
That is exactly the kind of book that I enjoy. I have read the first few chapters and I am really in to it so far!
I got Never Let Me Go for Christmas, and I’m super excited to read it! I can’t wait to see your thoughts!
Wow, you’ve got some great books there! I have never read Kazuo Ishiguro, but I will definitely read ‘The Remains of the Day’ this year. I never knew Never Let Me Go was sci-fi! What a surprise!!!
I know! I was so surprised. It is excellent so far!
