Hi everyone! I’m back with another WWW Wednesday, hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words.
The three Ws to be answered are:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
What are you currently reading?
I’ve just started The Sanatorium by Sarah Pearse – a bit late to the party as I feel like everyone has read this book already! The Sanatorium is a thriller set in an isolated hotel in the Swiss Alps, which was recently converted from an abandoned sanatorium. When Elin arrives to stay at the hotel, she is immediately put on edge… and that nervousness turns to panic when people start to disappear.
I only picked this up last night so I’m about 50 pages into the novel, but I’m enjoying it so far! It has very short chapters so it’s very quick and easy to read.
I’m also sort of currently reading Amazing Disgrace by Grace Campbell. By ‘sort of’, I mean I picked it up and read a couple of chapters just over a week ago, and I haven’t picked it up since. I wasn’t immediately taken by this book, which is a memoir/nonfiction book focusing on the concept of shame. I just don’t know if I enjoy the author’s voice very much. But I do want to give it another try.
What did you recently finish reading?
I really enjoyed Tall Bones – it’s a haunting, twisty and dark thriller. I was less certain about Piranesi – I read it predominately because it’s on the Women’s Prize longlist – and I thought it had a really promising premise and loved the first half of the novel, but found the second half to be a let down.
The Other Black Girl was a really good thriller – it’s been described as a combination of The Devil Wears Prada and Get Out. I’ll be posting a review closer to its publication date, which is 1 June.
What do you think you’ll read next?
I’m not sure what I’ll read after The Sanatorium. I recently ordered some new books (as a celebration for some good news I received – though who really needs the excuse?) so it might be one of them. As March was a bad month for me, I was mood reading a lot more, and I’ve continued to do this through April. For example, 4 out of the 6 most recent books I’ve read/am currently reading have been thrillers – I’m really into that genre at the moment, as I’ve read some phenomenal ones (Girl A and Tall Bones have to be some of the best I’ve read!). I do want to change it up a bit, but I’ll just see what I’m feeling!
