WWW Wednesdays

WWW Wednesdays is a weekly meme hosted by Miz B of Should Be Reading
To play along, 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?

What are you currently reading?: I have a few books on the go at the moment, just waiting for one to grab me so I can put the others down. I started with 84 Charing Cross Road, by Helene Hanff  - but have realised that it's only half the book. The other half is The Duchess of Bloomsbury Street, so now I'm trying to work out whether this constitutes one book - or two?!

What did you recently finish reading? I've just finished The Cry of the Go-Away Bird, by Andrea Eames... and it was brilliant. I really enjoyed it. Written from the voice of a 12-year-old white girl in Zimbabwe, living under Mugabe when the takeover of farms first began. I'll eventually sync my reviews with what I've just finished (rather than still reviewing books I read weeks ago!), but this should definitely go on your TBR piles!

What do you think you'll read next?: Well I have just started Body Surfing, by Anita Shreve - I've never read any of her work. But then I@ve also picked up, and admittedly put down, two of Joanne Harris' books: Blackberry Wine and Coastliners. Then, the end of March is frighteningly close and I still haven't read anything old for Lazy Girl's Mini Challenge so it could be either Treasure Island or Animal Farm...oh the decisions!


  1. I would count it as two books. Thanks for the recommendation for The Cry of the Go-Away Bird. I will keep an eye out for it.

    Here's my WWW Wednesdays. Enjoy your reading!

  2. Just added Cry of the Go-Away Bird to my TBR pile :)

  3. Body Surfing, Blackberry Wine and Coastliners are books that I'd like to read soon.

  4. Sounds like you are reading quite a few books, I can only read one book at a time, or would confuse plots, characters, etc. Interested in your thoughts on the Anita Shreve book.

  5. The cry of the going-away bird sounds wonderful; I've also added to my TBR list! Anita Shreve is one of my favorite authors; I've read all her books.
