WWW Wednesday logoIt’s WWW Wednesday again: and who would have thought one of the things I’d miss most about my previous job as a university lecturer was the 40 minute train ride to and from work?

The journey wasn’t just a commute but READING TIME.

And, with the best will in the world, reading time that has yet to be carved out of my new working day as a full time writer.

But, hurrah, this week at least I’ve managed to finish one book from the TBR and made serious inroads into another. 

So, here’s to WWW Wednesday.

What’s WWW Wednesday? It’s a fun way to share what you’ve been reading and which books on your TBR pile you hope to tackle next.

It’s currently hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Books and it’s easy to join in.

Simply answer the three questions below, post on your blog and then click here on the link to Taking on a World of Books and leave a comment and a link to your blog post for others to see.

Don’t have a blog? Just leave a comment with your responses.

And the questions are:

What are you currently reading?

What did you recently finish reading?

What do you think you’ll read next?

Here’s what my reading looks like:

Currently reading:

It looks as though The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak, which I started a month ago will remain on the TBR pile until Easter. Disappointed not to have read more of it this week – but it will be a lovely treat for the Bank Holiday weekend.

The Buried BookRecently finished:

The Buried Book by DM Pulley

Phew! This was the February read for my Real Life book group on Friday so glad to have finished this with a few days to spare.

Haven’t had time to write a review yet but, apart from a rather confusing ending, found this an intriguing and enjoyable read.

Reading next:

Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman

This is a carry-over from last week and the week before…but, again, reading to a deadline because this is the read of the month for the bookstore reading group I joined recently. Hoping to make a start on it tonight…

The Haunting of Hattie Hastings by Audrey Davis: Part Two

And once I’ve completed Eleanor Oliphant I’m planning to catch up with Hattie Hastings and her ghostly goings on. Another book from last week’s reading next shelf.

Ravens Gathering by Graeme Cumming

Also a carry over from last week – there seems to be a theme emerging here…

Fighting MonstersFighting Monsters by Rebecca Bradley

Given the struggle to finish the books that have topped the TBR pile for the last couple of weeks, it might seem a little unwise to add to the mountain. But Rebecca is a Facebook friend and when she asked for volunteers to review her latest novel I found myself saying ‘yes’.

Here’s what the blurb says:

Twenty four hours after he walked away from court a free man, cop killer and gang leader Simon Talbot is found murdered. In his possession: the name of a protected witness from his trial.

For DI Hannah Robbins, it’s a race against time to find Talbot’s killer, and locate the bystander before it’s too late.

But as Hannah delves deeper into the past, she begins to question the integrity of the whole operation.

Where do you turn when you can’t trust the police?
