πŸ“š WWW Wednesday | 6th January 2021

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?

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. πŸ”Ž

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! πŸŽ… 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, naΓ―ve 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. πŸ₯°

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! πŸ‘‹πŸ“šπŸ˜ƒ

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?

    1. FF, when you have chance to read it, I really hope you will enjoy Bartram’s first Crampton book as much as I did – It is still one of my particular favourites, because I loved how he first evoked the sights and sounds of a 1960’s newspaper office. πŸ™‚

    1. Nikki, I would just recommend starting with Bartram’s first book featuring Colin Crampton, which is Headline Murder and one of my favourites of the series: I loved particularly how he first evoked the sights and sounds of a 1960’s newspaper office. However each book is a separate mystery so you could technically read them out of order – I did miss out one book before this one and it didn’t effect my enjoyment at all. πŸ™‚

  1. I have only read Pride and Prejudice but I’m hoping to fix that this year! I really want to read Emma! I hope you are enjoying your reads. Happy Reading!

  2. What a great group of reads! The Phantom Tree definitely looks intriguing. I look forward to seeing more if you do decide to read it next. 😊

  3. The Peter Bertram series is another I’ve wanted to start. The first is in my Kindle. Maybe I should bump it up a little!

  4. Always here for Jane Austen! And I did love my reread of Northanger Abbey the last time I read it πŸ˜€

    I’m reading a fascinating nonfiction book about the affect of mosquitos on human civilization: The Mosquito: A Human History of Our Deadliest Predator. It’s weird reading it 9 months into a pandemic, but I’m definitely glad I didn’t read it earlier!

    Not sure what I’m reading next probably a galley or two I’m trailing from 2020, but could lean back into romances. Who knows?

    1. Geoff, always got to be here for some Jane Austen! My only problem is which of her wonderful novels to re-read next! It’s between Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility. I am also pleased to hear you are finding The Mosquito so fascinating and I hope you enjoy whatever you read next. πŸ™‚
