WWW WEDNESDAY | 001


WWW Wednesday is a linky hosted by Sam over at Taking On A World of Words with the idea being that you share a little bit about your current reads, recent reads, and also what you hope to read next.  I do take part in 'It's Monday' and so I do share my current reads in that way, but I like the idea of having an update too, as a way of looking back on my thoughts from a given week to see if they shifted etc.

WHAT ARE YOU CURRENTLY READING?
My current read is still the same as I shared on Monday - My Grandmother Sends Her Regards & Apologises by Fredrik Backman. It's still very early days for this book and I, but I'm enjoying what I have read so far. The author definitely has a unique writing style, and quite the imagination too!

WHAT DID YOU RECENTLY FINISH READING?
After reading Roald Dahl all September long, I was looking to step away from that kind of writing for my first read of October and so I delved into the page turner that was All Fall Down by Tom Bale. It was exactly the kind of book I was looking for, and I'll be sharing a review in the near future.

WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU'LL READ NEXT?
I've created a TBR for myself this autumn, something I rarely do, and whilst I'm not going to entirely stick to the books on my list, it's likely my next read will come from there. I may actually give reading Poe a go; I have a collection of his short stories sitting on my shelves. I also have some book mail due this week, so I may just pick up one of those books next. I know I'm looking for a darker / Halloween inspired read after I've finished the book by Backman.

WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN READING RECENTLY?

  2. I've only read A Man Called Ove by Backman, but I must get around to reading his other books. I've only heard good things about them!
    How brilliant to spend a month reading Roald Dahl. I'm looking forward to my son being old enough that I can read them with him.

    Thanks for visiting my WWW (https://clairehuston.wordpress.com/2016/10/05/www-wednesday-5th-october-2016/) and happy reading!

    1. This is my first Backman read, but I've also heard a lot of good things about his writing.

      It was lovely reading Dahl all month long - I can't wait until I can explore Dahl fully with my son also.

      Thanks for stopping by :-)

  4. My Grandmother Sends Her Regards looks great. I've heard good things about Backman in general. I can see wanting to go with something a little gritty after a month reading Dahl though reading Dahl for a month sounds like lots of fun!

    1. I've heard so many good things about Backman's writing, and although it's early days, I'm really enjoying the unique writing style.

      Dahl all month long was a lot of fun!

  6. I like a little darker read this time of year, often enough, and hope you find something that works!

    1. Yes, I do too! I like darker reads year round, but during autumn and winter, it makes for more atmospheric reading. Thanks!

  7. It's always great to read some dark books around Halloween! I am terrible with TBR's, love making them, very rarely actually stick to them!
    Here's my WWW

    1. Yes - so true! Haha! I'm usually the same with TBR's also. Happy reading!
