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 science-fiction classic, The War of the Worlds by H. G. Wells: the groundbreaking, Victorian tale of a Martian invasion of Southern England, which has spawned over a dozen TV, radio and film adaptations. And it is the BBC’s brand-spanking, new adapted series, that inspired me to finally give this a go. A slow, steady read, that is really wetting my appetite to watch the show.
I am also currently reading Christian non-fiction, No God But One: Allah or Jesus? by Nabeel Qureshi, in which, Muslim to Christian convert, Qureshi continues to explore the origins, similarities, differences and authenticity of these two faiths; a follow up book to his brilliant Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus. Only being a chapter in I can’t comment too much on it at the moment though.
Recently Finished: 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 learnt a lot and it was really entertaining too.
Reading Next: I promise I am finally going to get round to reading the science-fiction, thriller Cold Fire by Dean Koontz, which will tick off another category for my What’s in a Name 2019 challenge. It is on my bedside table ready to go!
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? Also please leave a link to your WWW posts in the comments, so I can come check them out.
