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: Still enjoying my comforting 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. Being well over half way through now, I have been swept away by all the trials and tribulations of the honest, hardworking Gabriel Oak and the beautiful, spirited Bathsheba Everdene.
I am also happy to report I picked up where I left off 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. I am also now well over half way through this and it has continued to be educational and insightful.
However, I have to admit I have not made any progress with 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 think I will get back to this with my time off next week, and probably end up devouring it in a few sittings, when I have time to focus on it.
Recently Finished: I haven’t finished anything this week, but I did manage to post my review of the short, political history: Stalin: A Very Brief History by Mark Black.
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.
