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 about three-quarters of the way through now, I have been re-swept away by all the trials and tribulations of the honest, hardworking Gabriel Oak and the beautiful, spirited Bathsheba Everdene.
However, I have to admit I have still 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 this week, and probably end up devouring it in a few sittings, when I have time to focus on it.
Recently Finished: 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. Once I was about halfway through this I was gripped, and took over completely from my other current reads. A fascinating book!
I also posted my review of the fascinating history of Margaret Tudor by Melanie Clegg.
Reading Next: As I have just finished my on-going non-fiction read, and I always like to have one on the go, I will most likely be shortly starting The Favourite: Sarah, Duchess of Marlborough by Ophelia Field: a history of the life of this powerful, glamorous and controversial favourite of Queen Anne. I am particularly looking forward to finding out more of the real history behind the recent, critically-acclaimed film, The Favourite (2018), starring the brilliant Olivia Colman and Rachel Weisz.
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.
