WWW Wednesday (1)

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?

Currently Reading-

The Humans by Matt Haig

17827166

I am still reading The Humans! Between school and Canadian Thanksgiving, I have not had a lot of time to read a physical book.  Still really loving this one though and I hope to be finished with it soon!

Toil & Trouble edited by Tess Sharpe

36426163

I have really started to love anthologies, and I will read just about any book that is about witches, so Toil & Trouble is perfect for me.  I have only listened to the first story but really enjoyed it and I have heard so many amazing things about this collection.  So excited to be reading it!

Just Finished-

We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson

89724

I am happy that I have finally read a book by Shirley Jackson! This was the perfect book to get me in to the Halloween spirit.  It was so creepy and eerie.  Some of the most interesting characters I have ever read.  I can not wait for the adaptation!

Sawkill Girls by Claire Legrand

38139409

This book was so weird, but in a good way! I so appreciated the diversity in this novel, which is hard to find in horror.  I also LOVED the feminist spin that this book had.  I a all about badass female characters and female friendships.  This book was very graphic at some points and I was reading it while home alone and it really started to freak me out! There are a few things that confused me, but overall I highly recommend it!

The Grownup by Gillian Flynn

26025580

I want to love Gillian Flynn’s books but they always end up being average for me.  This book is only 64 pages and I thought that it was enjoyable enough and did some clever things at the end, but it was nothing special or unique.  I am determined to fall in love with one of her books though, and I only have Dark Places left!

Reading Next

The Silence of the Girls by Pat Barker

37969723

Penguin Random House Canada just sent me a copy of this book and I instantly changed my reading plans to make this a priority.  It sounds so amazing and I have been hearing great things about it.  I am in the mood for Greek Mythology so this came at the perfect time!

  2. I’ve been wanting to read Toil & Trouble. I’m not huge into anthologies, but I love reading about witches. So maybe it’ll be an exception? 😛 I’m so happy that you really enjoyed We Have Always Lived in the Castle. One of my favorites! I didn’t know there was a movie! Now I am so excited. I’ve been seeing Sawkill Girls around a lot and I have it on my TBR. I can’t wait to read it.

  3. So many great books on your list this week. I’ve read Silence of the Girls and it is brilliant, I hope you enjoy.

    I’ve been reading a lot of Matt Haig this year but not The Humans yet, hopefully soon. Also always wanted to read We Have Always Lived in the Castle.

      1. I’ve been reading his non fic mostly. Loved Notes on a Nervous Planet. Also read The Last Family in England which is good but really depressing. How to Stop Time is currently lurking unread on my bookshelf. Did you enjoy it?

  4. I recently got Sawkill Girls and can’t wait to dive into it, I’m glad to know you enjoyed it! I’m sad to hear about the Grownup though, I love Gillian Flynn and I was looking forward to reading that one, since I think it’s the only one I’m missing.
