WWW Wednesday

WWW Wednesday is a weekly tag hosted on Taking on a World of Words which asks three easy questions…

What are you currently reading?

I’ve been pleasantly surprised by how much I’m enjoying this boarding school based novel with a semi-sci-fi (are all those hyphens allowed?) feel.

Jess is a snarky narrator and makes the sorts of mistakes I made as a teenager, preferable to some YA characters that make me judge myself well into adulthood in comparison to their lofty minds and unquestionably wise decisions.

I’m nearing the end now but it hasn’t slowed down or seemed to rush to reach conclusion.

What do you think you’ll read next?

With only a couple of chapters left of The Truth About Lies, I’ve decided to continue on a boarding school theme and last night ordered Never Let Me Go.

Here it is in the ‘click and collect’ section at the Waterstones near work awaiting collection

I’ve not read anything by Kazuo Ishiguro before but keep coming across this book and have decided to give it a go.

What did you recently finish reading?

I’ve just finished The Chalk Man by CJ Tudor.

I didn’t love it but didn’t hate it either. I suppose it was ‘uh’ on the ‘wow-meh’ scale that I’ll soon be developing.

My (first ever!) Goodreads review starts off as:

Entertaining and quick read though I did start to feel bamboozled by the steady stream of Dramatic Events in small town England circa 1986.


      1. The Remains of the Day, which I loved as well. I think consensus is that these two are his best. Both are poignant with an air of ‘what could have been’.
