WWW Wednesday | 23rd 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 Bible Jesus Read by Philip Yancey (2006) – I have just started this Christian non-fiction, from the award-winning contemporary Christian author, that confronts our well cherished – if misguided – notion that the New Testament is more important than the Old Testament. This is my next read for my church’s book club and while I am only a chapter in, I have already made plenty of notes!

Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne (1870) – I am only a couple of chapters into this classic adventure, from this beloved French author, that tells the adventures of Captain Nemo and his futuristic submarine, the Nautilus in the deep, unknown reaches of our ocean. This was my result for The Classics Club’s 24th Spin event and while, again, I am not that far into it, it has got off to a great start.

The Firebird by Susanna Kearsley (2013) – Finally, over the last couple of weeks, I have been dipping in and out of this paranormal, romance and 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.

Holy Bible – I am working my way through 2 Corinthians, the second of the apostle Paul’s collection of letters to the church in Corinth, Greece, in the New Testament.


– Recently Finished –

Holy Bible – I leisurely worked my way through 1 Corinthians, in the New Testament, one of the apostle Paul’s collection of letters to the church in Corinth, Greece; and then, over a couple of nights, I read the book of the prophet Malachi, in the Old Testament.

In the last week, I have sadly not posted any reviews, however yesterday, I did share the Books On My Autumn  TBR. Please check this out if you haven’t already. Thank you! 😊


– Reading Next –

 

With my current, slow reading progress, I don’t think I will need to worry for a little while about what I will be reading next. But when I am ready for a new book, I will be heading to my R.I.P XV reading list for inspiration.


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. Recently finished The Trouble with Peace – which was excellent. Now reading The Phlebotomist which is really good so far and next up, not sure yet, maybe one of my ‘witchy’ reads or The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue.
    Lynn 😀

  2. The Bible Jesus Read sounds interesting! The New Testament was always the focus of my religious education class as well – we did study The Old Testament extensively, but The New Testament we applied more. Happy reading!

    1. Thank you, Julie Anna 😊 and so far The Bible Jesus Read is proving very interesting and I have made a fair few notes on it. As it is relatively short, I hope I will be able to share my full thoughts on it soon. 😃

    1. Greg, so far The Bible Jesus Read is proving very interesting and I have made a fair few notes on it. As it is relatively short, I hope I will be able to share my full thoughts on it soon. 😃

    1. Hello Shoshi, thank you for stopping and commenting. It is always lovely to hear from a new face. 😊 What I have read of Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea I have enjoyed so far and sounds like you are due a re-read of it! 😁

  3. The Firebird by Susanna Kearsley looks and sounds like a great read. I hope you’re enjoying it.
    I’m not religious, but I’ve wanted to read the Bible. I got one on our Wedding, but I just can’t seem to be able to read it. It’s just so hard. Maybe one day though..

    1. Maureen, I hope you will give reading The Bible another go, but I can understand why you would find it hard, as it is not really a book you pick up and read from start to finish exactly. I recommend starting with one of the Gospels in the New Testament: either Matthew, Mark, Luke (my favourite 😉) or John.

  4. I collect children’s books (hence the Nancy Drew reviews on my blog every Friday), and have been trying to complete my Junior Deluxe Editions set. Just picked up 20,000 Leagues and added it to my TBR list since I never read it as a kid. I’m also very curious about The Bible Jesus Read and look forward to reading your thoughts.
    Here’s my WWW: https://bargainsleuth2010.wordpress.com/2020/09/23/www-wednesday-september-twenty-third/

    1. Hello Bargain Sleuth, thank you for stopping by and commenting. It is always lovely to hear from a new face. 😊 I hope you enjoy Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea when you chance to read it and hopefully, it won’t be too long till I will be able to share my fuller thoughts on The Bible Jesus Read. 🙂
