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 magical, historical-fiction, The Toymakers by Robert Dinsdale, which is about Cathy a teenage runaway who takes a job in Papa Jack’s Emporium, where they make toys that capture the imagination of children and adults alike. I bought this for my mum for Christmas and she loved it so much she has passed it back for me to try, and so far I am enjoying it a lot!
I also still have the non-fiction The Favourite: Sarah, Duchess of Marlborough by Ophelia Field – a history of the life of this powerful, glamorous and controversial favourite of Queen Anne – on the go but I haven’t picked it up in a while. From what I have read, it has been interesting to find out more of the real history behind the recent, critically-acclaimed film, The Favourite (2018), starring the brilliant Olivia Colman and Rachel Weisz.
Recently Finished: I haven’t finished anything since last Wednesday – Perhaps the only thing good to come out of the social isolation the government is recommending, because of the ‘pandemic-that-shall-not-be-named’ here, is that I will get loads more reading done!
Although no new books finished this week, I did manage to post my review of the cosy, crime fiction, Progressive Dinner Deadly by Elizabeth Spann Craig and I shared my spring to-be-read list in my post for the weekly meme, Top Ten Tuesday.
Reading Next: Probably either The Watsons or Lady Susan by Jane Austen, two short/unfinished works off my Classics Club list. I am eager to read more from this collection, after enjoying Sanditon, and with them being short it will be great to get my classics numbers up.
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, too.
