๐Ÿ“š WWW Wednesday | 20th 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?

Another week has passed and thankfully it was a calmer one, than my last WWW post! Now let’s delve into the books I’ve been worming my way into recently:

~ Currently Reading ~

Right now I am thoroughly enjoying the cosy crime caper, The Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman about a group of amateur pensioner sleuths: Elizabeth, Joyce, Ibrahim, and Ron, residents of the upmarket Coopers Chase Retirement Village, who start investigating a murder a bit too close to home. This is the debut novel from the TV presenter and Pointless creator, which I had heard great things about and so far, so good! ๐Ÿ‘ด๐Ÿ”Ž

~ Recently Finished ~

At the end of last week, I polished off my read of the stunning historical-fiction, The Phantom Tree by Nicola Cornick, that swept me away in the gripping tale of the loves, losses and adventures of Alison Banestre and her cousin, Mary Seymour, which slipped between present day and 1557, and had a dash of the supernatural for good measure, too! An emotional, exciting escape – Just what I needed!๐ŸŒณ

I also finished dipping in and out of my new cookbook, The Green Roasting Tin by Rukmini Iyer, an interesting collection of vegan and vegetarian one tray recipes, that I am looking forward to trying out soon! ๐Ÿฅ˜ And I managed to post my mini reviews of the two novellas: The Man Who Would Be King by Rudyard Kiplingย โญโญ & The Berlin Wall by Markย Blackย โญ.

~ Reading Next ~

Being in the mood for a classic and a re-read, I plan to pick up the historical-romance, Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott next. It has been many, many, many years since I read this, and if I am honest I only vaguely remember enjoying it, but little to nothing about the actual story and characters! So I am really looking forward to rediscovery this classic gem. Just look at that gorgeous cover as well! ๐Ÿ˜

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 are you planning to read next?

  1. I just finished Mask of Mirrors which I loved. Currently reading two books, Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier and Shape of Darkness by Laura Purcell. Next after that I have a few options, not decided just yet.

    1. I have just started re-reading Ivanhoe this morning, Greg! It is a looong one though, so hopefully you won’t be waiting an age to hear my thoughts on it! ๐Ÿ˜

  2. The Thursday Murder Club is currently sat on my TBR pile, I really must read it soon. I’m looking forward to hearing your thoughts on Ivanhoe, I love reading classics but will be honest I have not read this one. Will have to dig out my copy and read it. I’m currently reading The House on Vesper Sands by Paraic O’Donnell. Hope you have a good week.

    1. Thank you, Jess and I hope this was a good week of reading for you. ๐Ÿ™‚ I also just finished reading The Thursday Murder Club and loved it! I hope you will be able to read and enjoy it soon, too!

  3. These sounds like very good reads! I am very intrigued by The Phantom Tree, because I adore books that manage to focus both on the past and on the present time. I just finished my reread of From Lukov With Love by Mariana Zapata and I’m going to finish my last two books from Mariana Zapata’s backlist, The Best Thing and Dear Aaron. I have a few other books to read, but we’ll see how many I manage to do this week. Happy Reading!

    1. Thank you, Ruby Jo and if you adore books that focus on the past and present time, then I highly recommend The Phantom Tree. I also hope you will continue to enjoy reading Mariana Zapata’s novels – I will have to look her up as she is not an author I have heard of before. ๐Ÿ™‚
