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: A re-read of the wonderful classic, Far From the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy, which was my result for The Classics Club‘s last Spin event. I am enjoying losing myself again in the trials, tribulations, tragedy, heartbreak and ultimate resolution for the honest, hardworking Gabriel Oak and the beautiful, spirited Bathsheba Everdene. If only I could find my own Gabriel Oak! 😉
I also started reading the historical, murder-mystery, The Poison Bed by E. C. Fremantle, that follows a scandal that rocks the Jacobean court of James I, when a celebrated couple are imprisoned in the Tower on the accusation of murder. I am looking forward to delving deeper into this, something slightly different from Fremantle, after having previously loved her more straight-forward, historical-fictions: Sister of Treasons and The Girl in the Glass Tower.
Sadly, I have again not got any further with the 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, bestselling Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus. What I had read was proving to be very interesting and thought-provoking read, so I must get back to this soon!
Recently Finished: I haven’t finished anything this week, however I did post my What I Read In January 2020 and What I Watched In January 2020 round-up posts; if you want to check out what I read and watched over the month of January. I particularly had a good month of viewing, with a super impressive seven new adaptations watched. 😁
Reading Next: I am tempted by either the magical, historical-fiction, The Toymakers by Robert Dinsdale or the magical, dual-narrative novel, The Firebird by, one of my favourite authors, Susannah Kearsley. The latter of which would also tick off my first category for my What’s in a Name 2020 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? Also please leave a link to your WWW posts in the comments, so I can come check them out.
