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 event: Twenty 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!
