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 Silence of the Girls by Pat Barker


I am about 100 pages in to The Silence of the Girls and I predict that it will end up being one of my favourite books of the year.  Pat Barker is a brilliant writer.  There are so many passages that I need to write down.  So beautiful! It is a tough and dark read though so I am reading it a little bit at a time.  It is interesting to see another perspective on Achilles and Patroclus after reading A Song of Achilles.

How to Be a Boy by Robert Webb


I am listening to the audiobook of this book for Non-Fiction November, and it really hilarious so far!  I knew nothing about Robert Webb going in to this but I am now interested in what he has to say.  He narrates his story so well and I think a lot of people will relate to him!

Just Finished-

Killers of the Flower Moon by David Grann


Killers of the Flower Moon is a novel that I think every one should read.  It is amazing to me that I knew nothing about this story before I read the book. It is appalling what happened to the Osage people.  It is also being made in to a movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio and I have faith that the adaption is safe in his hands!

Every Breath by Nicholas Sparks


If you enjoy Nicholas Sparks, you’ll love Every Breath! I think it is my favourite of his novels that has come out in the last few years.  I love that it is based on a true story.  It is very romantic and I enjoyed the main characters and the setting.  Of course there is insta-love and it is cheesy but that is what I am looking for when I go in to a Sparks’ novel!

The Next Person You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom


I went to a Mitch Albom signing and it was amazing.  I doubt there is a better speaker than him out there! I am hoping to write up a post all about the event soon! The Five People You Meet in Heaven is one of my favourite books of all time and I was thrilled to hear there was a sequel.  I found this book just as moving, heartbreaking, and inspirational and the first one.

Calypso by David Sedaris


Calypso was my first David Sedaris novel and I now get all of the hype! There is something really special about the way he writes about his life and I can’t quite put my finger on it.  I am not invested in him, his partner, and his whole family.  There were a lot of laugh of loud moments and things I related to!

Reading Next

Little Shop of Found Things by Paula Brackston


Raincoast Books sent me a copy of The Little Shop of Found Things and I am really excited to read it.  I have heard great things about Paul Brackston’s other novel, The Witch’s Daughter. “A new series about a young woman whose connection to antiques takes her on a magical adventure.” Doesn’t that sound interesting?

I am also going to read another non-fiction book for Non-Fiction November, I am just not sure which one yet!


Have you read any of these books? What did you think?

  1. I’ve been hesitant on The Silence of the Girls, because while it seems like something I would love, it also seems pretty dark and grim. If you-or even someone else on my feed-winds up loving it, perhaps I might give it a try after all.

    And The Little Shop of Found Things is on my radar as well! Also that cover just looks absolutely gorgeous, doesn’t it?
