WWW Wednesdays – 5th February

Hi all!

How’s your week going?

I’m here with another edition of WWW Wednesdays!

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words, (and formerly hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm ) which simply involves answering the Three Ws:

What are you currently reading?

What did you recently finish reading?

What do you think you’ll read next?

So, I am currently reading:

TWO BOOKS!

The first is The Authenticity Project, by Clare Pooley. I’m reading this with The Pigeonhole, which allows you to read books in daily installments (called staves). I really like this format, as the staves are handy to read on my phone while commuting. The Authenticity Project is about Monica, who owns a cafe in Fulham, and the people she meets when a customer randomly leaves a green notebook on one of the tables. This notebook contains an instruction (or a challenge) for whoever finds it to be their authentic self. It’s a very engaging read so far! It published in ebook yesterday and will publish in hardback in the UK this April!

My second current read is The Water Cure, by Sophie Mackintosh (and I feel like I’ve talked a lot about this book already). This is about three sisters and their lives on an isolated island, which their father chose in order to protect them from the chaos and violence on the mainland. But when he disappears and two men and a boy arrive, their safe world and the rituals that strenthened them unravel. I think I will enjoy reading this one – I’m already finding it intriguing but I think the writing style is just taking a while for me to get used to!

I recently finished reading:

Grief Works, by Julia Samuel. This book looks at the complexity of grief and loss through case studies from the author’s work as a bereavement counsellor. Alongside the reflections and guidance that feature throughout, the stories of people finding ways to manage the thoughts, emotions, and behaviours that result from a death provide a moving and thought-provoking exploration. This book enabled me to understand grief and loss from new perspectives, and though difficult at times due to the intensity of the accounts given, was an incredibly good book.

I think my next read will be:

Rebecca, by Daphne du Maurier. Again, I’ve spoken a lot about this recently, but I will be re-reading this for a book club I’m part of. I’m very excited to return to this tale of jealousy and obsession from my favourite author.

Thanks for reading this week’s WWW Wednesday post! Don’t forget to check out all posts from the other lovely bloggers taking part!

What are you all reading this week?
