WWW Wednesday: What Am I Reading?

What have I been reading this week?

WWW Wednesday is hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words. All you have to do is answer these three questions:

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

Currently Reading

One of my New Years Resolutions (which you can find here!) is to read more classics, so I’m currently reading Susan Hill’s I’m The King Of The Castle. I loved The Woman In Black and similarly in this book, her writing style doesn’t disappoint.

I’m finding it a very frustrating book… but that shows how well written it is. It focuses on the stifling, seesawing relationship between two young boys: Kingshaw is angry. I’m angry. The hate is palpable.

I’ve nearly finished reading it, so a review is incoming! Keep an eye out for it.

Recently Finished Reading

My last read was Five Survive by the incredible Holly Jackson. If you’ve read her other YA murder mysteries, A Good Girl’s Guide To Murder, you’ll know her penchant for telling gripping mysteries with characters that leap from the pages. While a few of the characters fell flat for me in Five Survive, it’s about six (gasp) friends locked in a caravan with an active shooter outside. The only way out? To reveal their secrets… or die trying to escape.

I was hooked from the start and the setting combined with how it’s set across just 8 hours made Five Survive one of the most unique books I’ve ever read. Check out my full review here.

My Next Read

After sitting on my shelf for an embarrassingly long time, my next read is Us by David Nicholls. His bestseller One Day is one of my all time favourite books and I found Starter For Ten both heartbreaking and hilarious (find why in my review here). So, I’m both excited and slightly nervous to see Nicholls apply his incredible storytelling to a couple on a final family holiday, truing to decide if a divorce is the right route to end their story.

I’m slightly scared – I think this book is going to end in tears. But have you read Us? Or any of Nicholl’s other books? If so what did you think, and did you enjoy Us! Let me know in the comments.

I’m a teenager (and a Hufflepuff) from Manchester. I like oversized jumpers, music that isn't on the radio anymore and books. Pretty much any book I can get my hands on but my favourites are Young Adult, fantasy and science fiction. One day, I decided to share some of my opinions on some great - and not so great - books to people around the world. And here it is! I really enjoy it and I hope you do too. The aim is hundreds and thousands of book reviews (see what I did there?) but I’m not quite up to that. Yet.
