WWW Wednesday | 2nd September 2020

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 Firebird by Susanna Kearsley (2013) – I am only a couple of chapters into this dual-narrative, historical-fiction by one of my favourite authors, about Nicola Marter, a gallery assistant whose ‘special gift’ and a small wooden carving promises a glimpse back to the time of Russia’s first Empress Catherine.


– Recently Finished –

The Black Corsair by Emilio Salgari (1898) ** – Last night, I finished this Italian classic, about the legendary Caribbean pirate, the ‘Black Corsair’, as he seeks revenge for his brothers, slain by the Duke Van Guld, governor of Maracaibo. A fun swashbuckling adventure with battles, storms, sword fights, and daring pursuits and escapes!

Holy Bible – Over a couple of nights each, I read two more short books from the Old Testament: First, Song of Songs, a poem about two lovers, and then Lamentations, a collection of poetic laments of the destruction of Jerusalem.

In the last week, I also posted a monthly round-up: What I Read In August 2020. Please check this out if you haven’t already. Thank you! 😊


– Reading Next –


Now I have finished reading The Black Corsair, I will be shortly be starting my result for The Classics Club’s 24th Spin eventTwenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne, which I am excited to read, 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!

    1. Hey Hanna, thank you for stopping by and commenting. It always lovely to hear from a new face, especially a Jules Verne fan. 😊 So far I have loved Around the World in Eighty Days and really enjoyed Journey to the Centre of the Earth, so really looking forward to getting into Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. 😃

  1. I do my Bible reading in the morning, generally outside on the deck. No matter how warm it has been this Summer (which has really been unseasonably cool), the mornings have been great. I’ve also read at least one Mary Oliver poem on most mornings.

    This week I finished The Hound of the Baskervilles and Fer-De-Lance, the first Nero Wolfe book, by Rex Stout.

    I’m currently half way through The Secret Adversary, by Agatha Christie, and Whose Body? by Dorothy Sayers. Enjoying them both.

  2. I recently finished reading A Kingdom of Flesh and Fire by Jennifer L. Armentrout. It’s a paranormal romance/ fantasy series and it’s my absolute favorite so far. So good!!
    The Firebird sounds fun.
    Happy reading.

    1. Hello Hayden, thank you for stopping by and commenting. It is always lovely to hear from a new face, especially a fellow Christian. 😊 I hope you have chance to read all of Lamentations soon – It is a sad read but beautiful.

  3. I haven’t read Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea since I was in school and I don’t remember much about it, but I hope you love it as much as you expect to. Happy reading!
