The WWW tag runs weekly on Sam’s blog, each W stands for a different ‘What’ to summarise you’re last week in books.
What are you currently reading?
I’m currently reading The Prison Doctor: Women Inside which follows on from the authors first book which I read in 2019 (I think); this book focuses on her time working in women’s prisons so there’s a lot of heart-breaking stories, particularly around the impact on children when their mothers go to prison.
I’ve just started Before I Saw You*, I’m really not very far through so not really able to comment on how I’m finding it yet.
What have you recently finished?
At the weekend I finished Away with the Penguins which was a lovely, heart-warming story about headstrong Veronica McCreedy, a lady in her eighties who decides to go to Antarctica to visit penguins despite the resident research scientists insistence that its really not suited to welcoming visitors.
I just finished The Poet X this morning, the book is written in verse and I listened to the audiobook which is read by the author and I think I’ll try audio versions of other books written in verse going forward and it really brought the book to life.
What will you read next?
I said this last week but, Mr Loverman my library audiobook loans are now done for a little while so I’m going to be starting this tomorrow morning!
