Good morning, fellow bookworms. It is ‘Hump Day’ Wednesday which means we are halfway through the working week (if you’re at work) and it is time for WWW Wednesday! A weekly meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words, which simply involves answering the following Three Ws:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
Currently Reading: The dark, atmospheric historical-fiction Her Kind by Niamh Boyce, which shines a light onto the women caught up in the terrifying Kilkenny Witch Trial, in Ireland, and the events that led up to it. I am not far into this yet, it feels like a book I need to take my time over, but I have already been well and truly drawn into this emotive tale.
Alongside this I have also been enjoying a comforting re-read of the wonderful, Regency classic Persuasion by Jane Austen. As well as dipping in and out of The Golden Antilles by Tim Severin, which is an interesting history into the dangerous obsession of searching for the fabled city-of-gold, El Dorado, in Central America.
Recently Finished: The modern, suspense classic The Moonspinners by Mary Stewart, which helped me escape the miserable weather of the UK to the sun-drenched island of Crete. Where a young Englishwoman, Nicola Ferris finds herself caught up in a dangerous, fast-paced adventure, as she tries to help her fellow countryman, who is gravely injured. After finishing this, I can’t believe I had waited so long to read more of Stewart’s marvellous work – I pledge now not to wait so long again!
Reading Next: I am tempted by either the fourth Mary Russell & Sherlock Holmes mystery, The Moor by Laurie R. King or science-fiction, thriller Cold Fire by Dean Koontz. Both of which would be good for continuing my suitably dark and mysterious reading, that is perfect for this time of year and the R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril XIV reading challenge. Also the latter could tick off another category for my What’s in a Name 2019 challenge.
So that’s what I’ve been reading recently – Come back next week to see what I read next. Bye for now!
However before you go, I would love to hear from you, so tell me what have you been reading?
