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?
The Humans by Matt Haig
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
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!
We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson
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
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
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!
The Silence of the Girls by Pat Barker
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!
Have you read any of these books? What did you think?

I have Wr Always Lived In the Castle on my TBR since forever! I hope to get to it, sooner or later!
I hope you love it! It is so eerie! I am still thinking about it!
My work book club is read We Have Always Lived In The Castle, I’m so excited to get to it! Also, I’m so excited to hear your thoughts about Toil and Trouble, I’ve been eyeing it for the longest time!
Ah that is such a great book club read! There is going to be so much to talk about! I have a great feeling about Toil and Trouble. I am enjoying the different takes on witches!
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.
I am really enjoying the different takes on witches in Toil and Trouble! It might be something you would enjoy!
We Have Always Lived in a Castle was so strange but in a really great way!
I’ve been hearing great things about The Silence of the Girls. I can’t wait to see what you think of it!
I am really excited about it!
I’ve been seeing Sawkill Girls eeeeeverywhere. Adding it to my TBR for sure. 🙂
It is really different! I am so glad that I read it!
Sawkill Girls is really intriguing. Definitely hoping to get a copy of that at some point. Have a great week!
Thank you! Same to you!
Sawkill Girls is a wild ride!
I got Sawkill Girl in my mail yesterday!!!
Ahh I can not wait to hear what you think! There is so much that I love about it!
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.
That is great to hear about The Silence of the Girls!
Do you have a favourite book by Matt Haig? I have only read How to Stop Time by him.
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?
Oh I have heard great things about Love Notes on a Nervous Planet. I need to get to that! To be honest I was a little disappointed in How to Stop Time. I had a lot of the time travel cliche and I wanted more!
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.
Ohh I can not wait to see what you think of Sawkill Girls! I think if you loved her other books you will also enjoy The Grownups!
i’m definitely going to check out We Have Always Lived in the Castle! happy reading 🙂
Thank you! I highly recommend it!
I absolutely loved The Silence of the Girls!
I am so excited for it!!
