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?
I’m afraid it has been sometime since my last WWW post, as the end of the school term; Christmas, New Year, illness and wrap-up posts took over! Thankfully, it didn’t hamper my reading, so let’s have a look at the books I’ve been worming my way into recently:
~ Currently Reading ~
As I type, I am deep into the twists and turns of The Mother’s Day Mystery by Peter Bartram, which is another of Bartram’s nostalgic crime novels, to follow Colin Crampton: ace crime reporter for the Brighton Evening Chronicle, in the 1960s. This time he is investigating the mysterious hit-and-run killing of a grammar school pupil, out on a rarely used cliffside road. Jolly good, crime fun – I don’t think it will be long till I finish this. 🔎
I am also dipping in and out of my new cookbook, The Green Roasting Tin by Rukmini Iyer, which I received from my Secret Santa at work. Thank you, Secret Santa! 🎅 So far, it is proving a great collection of vegan and vegetarian one tray recipes, which has be salivating just thinking about cooking them!
~ Recently Finished ~
On my lazy New Year’s Day, I quietly finished my delightful re-read of the Regency classic, Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen ⭐⭐⭐. I took great comfort in reacquainting myself with the young, sweet, naïve Catherine Morland and her love of gothic novels, that has her imagining spooks and villains everywhere! A witty, satirical parody that playfully pokes fun at gothic novels. 🥰
I have also managed to post my reviews for the brilliant dual-narrative fiction, The Firebird by Susanna Kearsley ⭐⭐⭐ and the classic nautical adventure, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne ⭐⭐.
~ Reading Next ~
Honestly, I am not 100% sure what I’ll start reading next, but I am very tempted to go for The Phantom Tree by Nicola Cornick , which is a dual-narrative, historical-fiction from a new-to-me author; that I’ve heard really good things about. I hoped to read it last year, however for one reason or another didn’t get round to it, so I hope to get to it early in this new year. 🤞
That’s it for now, folks! All that is left to say is take care, happy reading, and please feel free to share a link in the comments below for your own WWW post, so we can come check it out! I hope to see you again next week for some more bookish chat! 👋📚😃
Now I’d love to hear from you: What are you currently reading? What did you recently finish reading? What do you think you’ll read next?
