Here is what I am reading now, then and next!

Now…
If you spotted my teaser yesterday, you will know I’m reading The Dynamite Room by Jason Hewitt – an intriguing book about a young girl and a German solider, set during World War II. Click here to read the blurb and my teaser

Then…

I’ve recently finished The Invisible Circus by Jennifer Egan and two young adult novels – A Quiet Kind of Thunder by Sara Barnard and Hate List by Jennifer Brown. I must admit I didn’t really love any of these books – reviews will be appearing here over the course of the next week or so.

I also started The Post-Birthday World by Lionel Shriver, but I didn’t make it very far at all! I know Shriver loves to use 50 words when just five or six will do, but I usually put up with this as I generally enjoy her books. But this one had the added horror of a south-London snooker player, and his awful, unconvincing dialogue made me cringe so much that I simply couldn’t continue – the book is now charity shop bound! 

Next…

I’ve recently picked up a few books that have been on my wishlist for a while: Ruby by Cynthia Bond, Do Not Say We Have Nothing by Madeleine Thien and My Grandmother Sends Her Regards and Apologises by the hilarious Fredrik Backman – all discovered in the library. These are all books I might read next – but knowing me I’ll probably get sidetracked by something else in the meantime!

I would love to hear all about what you’ve been reading, so please link to your WWW posts here!
