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 fourth Mary Russell & Sherlock Holmes mystery, The Moor by Laurie R. King, which with recent weather here in the UK has appropriately taken me to wet, foggy Dartmoor for another mysterious conundrum with this married sleuthing team. As they investigate a suspicious death and sightings of the ghostly Lady Howard’s carriage and the infamous, diabolical hound from Holmes’ earlier, probably best-known case of the Baskervilles.
Alongside this I have continued to dip 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 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. An emotive tale which I took my time over, and I was well and truly drawn into. On finishing this, I was so impressed with the writing think I will definitely need to check out Boyce’s earlier novel, The Herbalist.
Reading Next: Probably the mystery-thriller The Virgin of the Wind Rose by Glen Craney, that will hopefully be perfect for this time of year and I will hopefully manage to squeeze it in before the end of the R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril XIV reading challenge.
So that’s what I’ve been reading recently – Come back next week to see what I read next. Bye for now!
Now over to you: Have you read any of these? What have you been reading?
