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.
Recently Finished: The riveting, history non-fiction The Golden Antilles by Tim Severin, that illuminates the dangerous obsession of searching for the fabled city-of-gold, El Dorado; the promises of easy riches in this new world; and the power struggle between Spain and England for control of the Caribbean . A fascinating history which I am finding is as descriptive and flows as well as any historical adventure!
Reading Next: Probably the science-fiction, thriller Cold Fire by Dean Koontz, which will tick off another category for my What’s in a Name 2019 challenge. Also to continue 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?
