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

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


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! 


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!
