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 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!
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!
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?
