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?
Transcription by Kate Atkinson
I am slowly making my way though Transcription because I am trying to savour it. This is my first Kate Atkinson novel and I know I will be reading her other novels in the future. She is a brilliant writer and this book reminds me why I love WWII novels so much. This is an original book and an interesting look at the war.
You by Caroline Kepnes
I am listening to You on audiobook and it is really getting under my skin! It is so creepy!!! The narrator is fantastic and this is a great book to read in October. I am really looking forward to watching the TV series when I am finished with it.
I have seen some mixed reviews for The Miseducation of Cameron Post but I really loved it. The first half was slow and probably too long, but I appreciated having the opportunity to really get to know Cameron. The second half of the novel is fantastic and I adored the ending.
An Absolutely Remarkable Thing by Hank Green
I am curious to see what how Hank Green writes and I am going in to it with an open mind. I do not want to compare him to his brother. The plot for this one sounds really different and like something I will enjoy. It actually sounds a bit like Sleeping Giants, and you know how much I love that book!
Small Spaces by Kathrine Arden
I have been hearing amazing things about Small Spaces lately and I already know that I adore Katherine Arden’s writing! I think the cover is really fun and a little spooky. It seems like another great October book. I really want to read spooky and creepy books this month!
Have you read any of these books? What did you think?
Thank you to Penguin Random House Canada for sending me a copy of Transcription and An Absolutely Remarkable Thing in exchange for an honest review.

I seem to be hearing about Transcription everywhere recently. I used to read a lot of Atkinsons books but stopped for some reason. I did always like her writing.
I’m afraid I’m one of those who didn’t love Cameron Post and while I kind of liked the 2nd half I hated the ending. I wanted to know what happened next.
I am interesting in picking up some of Kate Atkinsons backlist! Do you have a favourite?
I can completely understand why Cameron Post doesn’t work for some people, and normally I do not get along with ambiguous endings like that. There was just something about it that affected me!
It’s been a long time (10+yrs) but I do remember enjoying her Jackson Brody series. Case Histories might be the first one.
I did like the writing in Cameron Post but unfortunately I never connected to the story. I think it’s probably just one of those books you either get or you don’t. I’d still recommend it and am looking forward to the film. I think it’ll be great as a film.
I really liked Life After Life myself.
Oh, I love the cover of Small Spaces! Definitely gives off the perfect Halloween vibe! I hope you enjoy it. 🙂
Isn’t it great!? I hope so too!
I really hope to read Small Spaces this month too. I love the cover and it sounds like the perfect October read 🎃
I hope we both enjoy it!
I didn’t think there’s too many similarities between Hank and John’s books, besides just writing for a younger, internet audience. I really like AART. And you’re totally right about the You audiobook. Totally creepy. I read it last month. https://litlistening.com/2018/10/03/www-wednesday-weekly-wrap-up-3/
That is good to hear! I am excited to get in to AART!
I have never read a book quite like You before!
Small Spaces looks like an adorable read! I can’t wait for your review.
I have been trying to read a little more Middle Grade lately. Hopefully I will enjoy it!
I’ve heard so many good things about You! I’m glad to hear you’re enjoying it! Small Spaces is on my TBR, too! I think it looks like such a fun and creepy book for this time of year. 🙂
You is unlike any book I have ever read before. So many different emotions!
I am really excited about Small Spaces. I feel like it might bring me some nostalgia for the kind of books I used to read when I was younger.
I hope you enjoy the adaptation of You when you get around to it. I’m loving it so far. I’m feeling the same way about Joe that I did while reading the book.
So glad you are enjoying You, the audio version. I loved it!! I am currently listening to the next one, Hidden Bodies, and it is every bit as creepy as the first!
I definitely want to listen to Hidden Bodies as well but I think I will need some time to recover from You!
I hope you have an awesome week of reading!
Thank you! Same to you!
Small Spaces was a lot of fun. I really liked the kids and Ollie just wants to read and be left alone. I related so much 🙂 Probably not cool if you fear scarecrows though!
Ohh scarecrows can definitely be creepy but that makes me more excited to get in to it! I just started the audiobook!
