WWW Wednesday: 20th January 2021

Welcome to my first WWW Wednesday post on my new blog!

WWW Wednesday is a weekly challenge hosted by Sam @ Taking On A World Of Words. The post will give you an insight into what I have been reading recently, and what my reading plans are for the next week!

All you have to do is answer the following three questions:

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

Currently Reading

I am currently reading Cilka’s Journey by Heather Morris, which I have nearly finished. It is the companion novel to The Tattooist of Auschwitz which I read towards the end of last year. I really enjoyed The Tattooist of Auschwitz, but I think I might be enjoying Cilka’s Journey even more! I am aware that there are some historical inaccuracies, however the author does explain that the novel is a work of fiction based on true events, rather than a non-fiction book. I am keen to explore historical fiction more this year so any suggestions/recommendations would be very welcome.

Recently Finished

I recently finished How To Be Happy by Eva Woods, which was my first 5 star read of the year! It was a beautiful story of friendship, and finding happiness even in the darkest times. Polly’s outlook on life was uplifting, and it was especially poignant to read during the times that we find ourselves living in.

Next Read

I am definitely a mood reader, but at the moment, I am planning to read The Forgotten Guide to Happiness by Sophie Jenkins next! I love the “happy” theme between my last and next novels (a contrast to the heavier storyline of Cilka’s Journey). I will keep you updated on my thoughts about this one… or whether I choose to read something completely different!

Thank you for reading and checking out my new blog – I look forward to seeing you next week!

  1. I’ve been meaning to read Cilka’s Journey too as I enjoyed The Tattooist Of Auschwitz too. Favorite historical fiction books include anything by Kate Quinn, Amy Harmon, Ruta Sepetys, Chanel Cleeton… Things In Jars by Jess Kidd is brilliant too. I hope you will enjoy your books this week and happy reading! Here’s my WWW.

  2. Hi! Welcome! I’m also new to the community! I wish us both much luck! 😀 I am really wanting to read The Tattooist of Auschwitz; I haven’t read much about the subject and am very curious. Even if the book is historical fiction, the story will surely take me to its time period. Happy reading and blogging!
