Welcome to another WWW Wednesday! This meme is hosted by Taking on a World of Words. To participate, just answer the following three questions:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
So, let’s begin!
I’m currently reading…
Sometimes I Lie, by Alice Feeney
Told from the perspective of a woman in a coma struggling to remember how she ended up this way, this has kind of a The Woman on the Train vibe. I’m almost done with it and I’ve been enjoying it so far!
The Witch of Willow Hall, by Hester Fox
This is a NetGalley ARC. I’m only about 10% of the way into it right now, but I’ve heard great things and I’m excited to get into the meat of the story.
The Woman in the Window, by A. J. Finn
This one is part of my efforts to catch up on my Book of the Month books, which have been piling up while I’ve been reading ARCs. The protagonist has agoraphobia and I’m finding her voice really interesting.
I recently finished reading…
The only book I’ve reviewed from this week so far is Tin Man. You can read my review here if you missed it.
I just finished The Psychology of Time Travel today, and it was phenomenal. I’ll have a full review up at a later date (this is an ARC of the US release coming early next year), but the short version is this: super fun time travel story beginning in the 1960’s and leading into an alternate history of our world… and also a murder mystery. The world building was really cool, plus bonus points for representation.
The author was kind enough to send me a copy of The Things We Learn When We’re Dead to review, so this is next up on the agenda! Here’s the blurb:
“The Things We Learn When We’re Dead is about how small decisions can have profound and unintended consequences, but how we can sometimes get a second chance.
On the way home from a dinner party, Lorna Love steps into the path of an oncoming car. When she wakes up she is in what appears to be a hospital – but a hospital in which her nurse looks like a young Sean Connery, she is served wine for supper, and everyone avoids her questions.
It soon transpires that she is in Heaven, or on HVN, because HVN is a lost, dysfunctional spaceship, and God the aging hippy captain. She seems to be there by accident… or does God have a higher purpose after all?
Despite that, The Things We Learn When We’re Dead is neither sci-fi nor fantasy. It is a book about memory and how, if we could remember things slightly differently, would we also be changed?
In HVN, Lorna can at first remember nothing. But as her memories return – some good, some bad – she realises that she has decisions to make and that, maybe, she can find a way back home.”
One final note…
I’ve just added an Instagram for this blog, where I’ve been posting book photos and quotes. You should go follow me if that’s your kind of thing. And if you’re reading my blog, I’m assuming that’s your kind of thing.
