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?
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! 👴🔎
~ 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!🌳
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! 🥘 And I managed to post my mini reviews of the two novellas: The Man Who Would Be King by Rudyard Kipling ⭐⭐ & The Berlin Wall by Mark Black ⭐.
~ 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! 😍
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: Have you read any of these? What have you been reading? What are you planning to read next?
