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 –
Kim by Rudyard Kipling (1901) – The classic adventure that is transporting me back to the exotic, bubbling, melting pot of India under British rule in the late 1800s, where we follow the antics of the young, Irish orphan, Kim after he befriends an aged Tibetan lama. This is just the escapist adventure my tired brain needed.
The Hairy Bikers’ One Pot Wonders by Si King & Dave Myers (2019) – A new cookbook from my favourite cooks (I already own ALL of their Hairy Dieters cookbooks). This one is a great selection of recipes celebrating the simple joys of one pot cooking, which is my favourite type of cooking!
Holy Bible – I have continued working my way through the gospel of John in the New Testament, and now that we’re on the school’s summer break, I have been able to start checking back in with my church’s Morning Prayer livestreams, where we have been dipping in and out of Samuel 2, Luke and the Psalms
– Recently Finished –
How To Pray by Pete Greig (2019) ** – Last week, I finished it this helpful Christian non-fiction, all ready for my church’s book club’s Zoom meeting, this coming Thursday. Greig brings his 20 years of experience to help answer the question everybody ultimately asks: how do I pray? A good read full of useful tips and inspiration.
Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel (2009) ** – Then earlier this week, I finally finished this beastie, award-winning, historical-fiction about the dramatic rise of Henry VIII’s right-hand man, Thomas Cromwell. A slow starter for me, but as I got use to the quirky style and got into the juicier details of the tale, the quicker I was able to read.
In the last week, I also posted my reviews for the romantic, time-travelling adventure, River Rising by John A. Heldt and the hilarious fourteenth Discworld novel, Lords and Ladies by Terry Pratchett. Please check these out if you haven’t already. Thank you! 😊

Having returned to and perused over my possibles list for my 10 Books of Summer Reading Challenge 2020, I am finding myself most drawn to the historical-fiction, The Cottingley Secret by Hazel Gaynor, which retells the real-life events of the “Cottingley Fairies” photographs.
Now over to you: What are you currently reading? What did you recently finish reading? What do you think you’ll read next?
