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 –
Katharina: Deliverance by Margaret Skea (2017) – The first book in a new historical-fiction series from my favourite, modern Christian novelists, which tells us the early years of the 16th century runaway, German nun and future wife of religious reformer, Martin Luther. I’m already 29% in! 😁
The Black Corsair by Emilio Salgari (1898) – A classic adventure about the legendary Caribbean pirate, the ‘Black Corsair’; which I am super excited about as it is from the author who brought us the swashbuckling tales The Tigers of Mompracem and The Pirates of Malaysia about the dashing pirate, Sandokan.
Holy Bible – In my church’s Morning Prayer livestreams, we have been working our way through 1 Samuel and Acts, and dipping in and out of the Psalms.
– Recently Finished –
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). A great selection of recipes celebrating the simple joys of one pot cooking: my favourite type of cooking! Keep your eyes peeled for me trying recipes from this soon, in my Sunday Reflection posts. 🥘
The Cottingley Secret by Hazel Gaynor (2017) *** – The dual-narrative, historical-fiction that reimagines the real life events surrounding the famous ‘Cottingley Fairies’ photographs. A light, sweet and simple tale, that swept me along with the mystery, romance and magic of it all, which was just what I needed. 🧚♀️
Agatha Raisin and the Wizard of Evesham by M.C. Beaton (1999) ** – The eighth book in Beaton’s long-running, cosy-crime series., which sees our Agatha investigating the local ladies’ favourite hairdresser, Mr John, a dishy but dodgy fellow who comes to a sticky end! A short, quick and super fun read, that I sped through one lazy Saturday in the garden.
Holy Bible – I finished the gospel of John and, in my church’s Morning Prayer livestreams, we finished working our way through the gospel of Luke; both testaments of the life and teachings of Jesus.
In the last week, I also posted my reviews for the lesser known classic, The Professor by Charlotte Brontë and the helpful, Christian non-fiction, Wholeness by Christy Wimber. Please check these out if you haven’t already. Thank you! 😊

I recently took park in The Classics Club’s 24th Spin event, my result for which was the classic adventure, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne. I am excited to read this, after loving Around the World in Eighty-Days, and it’s helpfully on my 10 Books of Summer list, too.
Now over to you: What are you currently reading? What did you recently finish reading? What do you think you’ll read next?
