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 mystery-thriller The Virgin of the Wind Rose by Glen Craney, which has a dual-narrative plot, separated by half a millennium, that both revolve around an uncracked Templar cryptogram. It says this is for lovers of Dan Brown, well I love Brown’s cryptic thrillers but I haven’t read enough of this yet to make a fair comparison yet. It has started well though.
Instead my main reading focus, now I have got really into it, is the riveting The Golden Antilles by Tim Severin. A fascinating history into the dangerous obsession of searching for the fabled city-of-gold, El Dorado, which I am finding is as descriptive and flows as well as any historical adventure!
Recently Finished: The fourth Mary Russell & Sherlock Holmes mystery, The Moor by Laurie R. King, which with recent weather here in the UK appropriately took me to wet, foggy Dartmoor for another mysterious conundrum with this married sleuthing team. As they investigated 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. A good, nostalgic mystery read.
Reading Next: Probably the science-fiction, thriller Cold Fire by Dean Koontz, which would have been great for the R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril XIV reading challenge, but I won’t get to this in time for that now. However Cold Fire could still tick off another category for my What’s in a Name 2019 challenge. Also with the start of Nonfiction November 2019, I will be hoping to read Margaret Tudor by Melanie Clegg and/or The Favourite by Ophelia Field soon too.
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?
