WWW Wednesday | 23/09/2020

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words that highlights three questions:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

at did you recently finish reading?

The most recent book I finished was Man is Wolf to Man by Janusz Bardach which was lent to me by my dad. This book is definitely not for the faint of heart as there's some horrific scenes described as Janusz details his time imprisoned in a labour camp in Siberia. I found this book incredibly heartbreaking and emotional but of course it was a testament to the strength and courage it took to live through something as appalling as that.

What are you currently reading?

I'm currently reading An Abundance of Katherines by John Green and honestly I'm not completely hating it. I'm about halfway through and although there are some references and things that are a bit questionable, I'm still liking the way the story is told. It may be because I'm a sucker for footnotes but who knows?  

I'm also just over halfway through Kids Like Us by Hilary Reyl and this one I'm a bit more unsure about. It's still not really captivated me and it's starting to feel a little boring but I'm going to finish because I requested this on netgalley back in 2017 and I'm only just now reading it...

What do you think you'll read next?

I've almost completed my September TBR, I only have one book left and that's Rebecca by Daphne De Maurier. I have a feeling I'm going to enjoy this and I'm just really in the mood for something gothic at the moment.
The novel begins in Monte Carlo, where our heroine is swept off her feet by the dashing widower Maxim de Winter and his sudden proposal of marriage. Orphaned and working as a lady's maid, she can barely believe her luck. It is only when they arrive at his massive country estate that she realizes how large a shadow his late wife will cast over their lives--presenting her with a lingering evil that threatens to destroy their marriage from beyond the grave.

Have you read any of these? What were your thoughts? What are you currently reading and hoping to pick up next? Leave a comment or link your own WWW Wednesdays below for me to check out!
