๐Ÿ“š WWW Wednesday | 13th January 2021

Good morning, fellow bookworms. It is โ€˜Hump Dayโ€™ Wednesday which means we are halfway through the working week (if youโ€™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 youโ€™ll read next?

Only a week has passed since my last WWW post this time and while it has gone relatively quick, I do weirdly feel like a month has passed at the same time! I blame the crazy times we are living in! So let’s escape all that with a delve into the books I’ve been worming my way into recently:

~ Currently Reading ~

At present, I am totally gripped by the dual-narrative historical-fiction, The Phantom Tree by Nicola Cornick: the gripping tale of the loves, losses and adventures of Alison Banestre and her cousin, Mary Seymour,ย which slips between present day and 1557, and has a dash of the supernatural for good measure, too! I am finding it hard to put this down and if I didn’t (irritatingly) need to eat, sleep and go to work, I would have finished it long ago! ๐Ÿ˜…

I have also continued 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! ๐ŸŽ… 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 ~

Not long after my last WWW post, I polished off The Mother’s Day Mystery by Peter Bartram, which is another of Bartramโ€™s nostalgic crime novels, to follow Colin Crampton: ace crime reporter for the Brighton Evening Chronicle, in the 1960s. This time he was investigating the mysterious hit-and-run killing of a grammar school pupil, out on a rarely used cliffside road. Full of twists and turns, laughs, danger, charm and a solution I never saw coming, this was jolly good, crime fun! ๐Ÿ”Ž

I have also managed to post my mini reviews of the two non-fictions: Luther and the 9.5 Theses byย Kenneth Brownellย โญย & Martin Luther and John Calvin by Charles River Editorsย โญโญ.

~ Reading Next ~

I am tempted to pick up the cosy crime caper, The Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman, about a group of amateur sleuths in an upmarket retirement village investigating a murder a bit too close to home, next. This is the debut novel from the TV presenter and Pointless creator, which I have heard great things about and it is already a bestseller!

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! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Now I’d love to hear from you: Have you read any of these? What have you been reading? What do you think youโ€™ll read next?

  1. The Phantom Tree looks amazing! I have to get a copy of this. I came into cozy mysteries in 2020 and I just need to get a big old stack of them so The Thursday Murder Club sounds amazing too. Happy reading!

    1. Thank you, Molly! ๐Ÿ˜Š I can tell you, I recently finished The Phantom Tree and ended up loving it! So I highly recommend it and I will be looking out for more of Cornick’s books! ๐Ÿ˜

  2. So glad you’re enjoying The Phantom Tree! I have a couple of her other time slip novels on my list. This makes me want to get to them sooner than later!
