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 –
Wholeness: Changing How We Think About Healing by – The Christian non-fiction, that looks into the difficult topic of mental health and how we should view it, treat it and pray for it. Hopefully this will be a helpful read for me as I suffer with anxiety. This is our June book choice for my church’s book club, so I need to get reading if I want to finish it for our Zoom meeting tomorrow! 2019)
Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel (2009) – The award-winning, historical-fiction about the dramatic rise of Henry VIII’s right-hand man, Thomas Cromwell, has been some what abandoned recently as I found myself more in the mood for my non-fiction reading. Fingers-crossed I will get back to this soon!
Holy Bible – I have continued working my way through the gospel of John in the New Testament, as well as dipping in and out of Joshua, Luke and the Psalms, as part of my church’s Morning Prayer livestreams.
– Recently Finished –
The Favourite: Sarah, Duchess of Marlborough by Ophelia Field (2002) ** – A very long, but fascinating history of the life of this controversial favourite of Queen Anne. While it took me a long time to read it, I really enjoyed finding out more of the real history behind the recent, critically-acclaimed film, The Favourite (2018); where Sarah was played by the brilliant Rachel Weisz.
Holy Bible – As part of my church’s Morning Prayer sessions, we finished dipping in and out of the book of Joshua, in the Old Testament – It was really good to read through this book as a group, with the vicar’s thoughts too.
In the last week, I have also shared my review of the unfinished classic, The Watsons by Jane Austen.
