#WWWWednesday – 17 May 2023 and #DDMreadingweek

It’s WWWWednesday!

What are you currently reading?

I was hoping to read another book for DDM week but time got away from me so I’m going to pick up something else.

I have a few series that I read and one of them is Rachel Lynch’s D.I. Kelly Porter series. Book Ten Sudden Death has been waiting since it was published last November for me to pick up and that’s just what I’m going to do.

What did you recently finish reading?

I finished The Breakthrough for DDM week which is hosted by Ali at HEAVENALI.

Book blurb

Dispatch the maimed, the old, the weak, destroy the very world itself, for what is the point of life if the promise of fulfilment lies elsewhere?

On the windswept coast of rural Suffolk, a deranged scientist attempts to extract the essence of life itself.

Review: If I haven’t posted my thoughts yet, I will in the next few days.

Published: Penguin: 1st edition (22 Feb. 2018) | 59 pages

Penguin Modern: fifty new books celebrating the pioneering spirit of the iconic Penguin Modern Classics series, with each one offering a concentrated hit of its contemporary, international flavour. Here are authors ranging from Kathy Acker to James Baldwin, Truman Capote to Stanislaw Lem and George Orwell to Shirley Jackson; essays radical and inspiring; poems moving and disturbing; stories surreal and fabulous; taking us from the deep South to modern Japan, New York’s underground scene to the farthest reaches of outer space.

Previously finished

What do you think you’ll read next?

As DDM Week has concluded I’ll read another book or so before the end of May. Sudden Death by Rachel Lynch will be one (see above) and Twin Truths by Jacqueline Sutherland another (see below). Then it’s on to #20BooksOfSummer23.

I’ve posted my list for this years #20BooksOfSummer23 hosted by Cathy at 746books asap. Cathy from 746Books is the mastermind and host behind this annual event. It’s optional to pick 10, 15 or 20 books. It runs from 1 June to 1 September and it’s a very easy going challenge which is why I like it so much.

I’m initially going for ten books but have added a supplementary list of another 20 or so for swapping out if needed or if I need more books to read.

I am a member of a book club and as titles are voted on monthly I don’t know what they are at the moment and so I will swop in those that I do. Any blog tour books that I undertake will be added or swapped in.

Ten books means 3 or 4 books a month but if I read a book a week it is possible I might manage 12 books over the period so 15 may be the final count if I get into a reading stride. I would have to read seven books a month to manage twenty which I think may be too much but that’s ok. There’s never any pressure and that’s why I always like to join this challenge.


Twin Truths by Jacqueline Sutherland – I’ll be reading this to review in early June.

The Pawnshop of Stolen Dreams by Victoria Williamson BlogTour from @The_WriteReads my spot is on 16th June.

Deadly Autumn Harvest by Tony Mott, translated by Marina Sofia BlogTour from Corylus Books. My spot is 27th July.
