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) – I am loving being swept back to a time of revolutionary, religious reform in 16th century German, in this first book in a new historical-fiction series, told through the eyes of Katharina von Bora, a runaway nun. I will probably finish reading this later today.
The Black Corsair by Emilio Salgari (1898) – I am also still enjoying dipping my toes into this classic, Italian adventure on the high-seas, about the legendary Caribbean pirate, the ‘Black Corsair’, as he seeks revenge for his brothers, slain by the Duke Van Guld, governor of Maracaibo.
– Recently Finished –
Holy Bible – One night, I enjoyed reading through the whole of Ruth, a lovely, short book in the Old Testament, about family, loyalty and redemption.
In the last week, I also posted my reviews of the Christian ‘Beauty and the Beast’ retelling, Calysta and the Beast by Joanna Alonzo; the historical tome, The Favourite: Sarah, Duchess of Marlborough by Ophelia Field, and the useful Christian non-fiction, How To Pray: A Simple Guide for Normal People by Pete Greig. Please check these out if you haven’t already. Thank you! 😊
– Reading Next –
As I am still reading The Black Corsair, I have not been able to start my result for The Classics Club’s 24th Spin event: the classic adventure, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne. But I am still excited to read this, as I loved Around the World in Eighty-Days.
Now over to you: What are you currently reading? What did you recently finish reading? What do you think you’ll read next?
Also please leave a link to your WWW posts in the comments, so I can come check them out, too!
