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 non-fiction Margaret Tudor by Melanie Clegg, an interesting look into the life of the eldest daughter of Henry VII and Elizabeth of York; wife of James IV of Scotland; mother to James V; and grandmother of Mary, Queen of Scots. A big but often overlooked player in Tudor history – Obscured in the long shadow of her more infamous brother, Henry VIII. I have never read anything about Margaret before, so I am learning a lot and it is really entertaining too.
Recently Finished: Sadly I have had to make the tough decision to give up on the mystery-thriller The Virgin of the Wind Rose by Glen Craney. While at first it was a fun, light read to dip into when I had time, eventually the typos and anachronisms got too much for me. The final straw being a glaring comment about the queen dropping two crumpets in her tea rather than one… As a crumpet is a thick, flat savoury cake you shouldn’t be dropping any in your tea! Such a shame because the premise had such promise. It is also my first DNF of the year.
Reading Next: The science-fiction, thriller Cold Fire by Dean Koontz, which will 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!
Now over to you: Have you read any of these? What have you been reading?
