πŸ“š WWW Wednesday | 21st October 2020

Good morning, fellow bookworms. It is β€˜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 ~

πŸ“– Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne – Now I can give it my full attention, I am making good progress with this classic adventure. I am thoroughly enjoying my time with Professor Aronnax and his companions, as they take a forced sojourn upon Captain Nemo’s metal leviathan, the Nautilus, in the deep, unknown reaches of our ocean.

πŸ“– Holy Bible – I have continued working my way back through the book ofΒ Job, about the testing of a good, pious man by Satan, with my new perspective on this difficultΒ Old TestamentΒ book that I got from readingΒ The Bible Jesus ReadΒ by Philip Yancey.


~ Recently Finished ~

πŸ“– The Firebird by Susanna Kearsley – Although I have been reading slower than I would usually, I was still completely enthralled by this dual-narrative, historical-fiction, by one of my favourite authors. This stunning tale of love, courage, redemption, psychic abilities and the Jacobite rebellion, was just what I wanted and swept me away from my confinement. ⭐⭐⭐

In the last week, I also posted my reviews of the cosy-crime Agatha Raisin and the Wizard of Evesham by M.C. Beaton ⭐⭐ and the enthralling historical-fiction, Katharina: Deliverance by Margaret Skea ⭐⭐⭐. Please check these out if you haven’t already. Thank you! 😊


~ Reading Next ~

Next I have a hankering to read The Mother’s Day Mystery by Peter Bartram, which is the next book I have lined up to read from Bartram’s nostalgic crime series, following Colin Crampton, ace crime reporter for the Brighton Evening Chronicle, in the 1960s. This is also off my R.I.P XV reading list.


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. I’m looking forward to your thoughts on 20,000 Leagues! I’d love to read that one soon too, but I suppose I should probably read all of the classics I currently have on my shelf πŸ˜…

    1. Laurel-Rain, I highly recommend both the Colin Crampton and Agatha Raisin series: they both have a very comforting, cosy-crime feel to them, although the Colin Crampton crimes are a bit more serious in tone. I warn you though the characters in Agatha Raisin, are quite a bit different in the books, which what put me off the TV series. πŸ˜‰ Take care and happy reading! πŸ‘‹πŸ“šπŸ˜ƒ

    1. Hey Bargain Sleuth, I hope reading my thoughts on Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea will make you want to bump up your TBR list and that you will enjoy it. Take care and happy reading! πŸ‘‹πŸ“šπŸ˜ƒ

    1. Great to hear your a Jules Verne fan too, Higgy. I sadly didn’t read any of them as a child, although in hindsight I now know I would have loved them. I enjoyed Journey to the Centre of the Earth and loved Around the World in Eighty Days, so I hope I will love this oceanic adventure as well. Take care and happy reading! πŸ‘‹πŸ“šπŸ˜ƒ

    1. Hey Just_Me ;), it is lovely to see you again 😊 I hope you’ve been well and that maybe seeing my thoughts on Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea will have you bumping it up your TBR! Take care and happy reading! πŸ‘‹πŸ“šπŸ˜ƒ

      1. Hi there Jessica! I’ve been well but so busy at work, anyway, I hope you are safe and well, too. Yeah, I really hope to get to it soon, it does sound more interesting to read it now after reading your thoughts on it! πŸ™‚ You take care, too!
