Welcome back to another WWW. I really enjoyed my post last week and, let’s be honest, I’m enjoying this cover; it’s so lovely and colourful right now. Last week, I posted my first WWW, and the feedback was lovely. From other people’s posts, I added a tonne of books to my to be read pile, so if nothing else, I’m all in it for that.
WWW Wednesday asks three simple questions:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
As with last week, life is still a bit up in the air because of Covid19, and the fact I’m now homeschooling for the foreseeable future (solidarity to other parents, and the amount of wine their liver is now having to process), but one of the things I’ve managed to work into our not-really-schooling timetable is half an hour reading time together, where we read quietly, then discuss our books. It’s been a brilliant way of working some reading time in to both for both of us. Also, unashamedly, the perfect time for a cup of coffee before setting English challenges for the morning.
What are you currently reading?
I’m currently reading, and absolutely loving, A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder. It’s a YA murder mystery, with such high quality writing that I am loving every single page. One of those, “I can’t put this down, how can I move?” type books that reminds me of rollerskating with a paperback as a teenager. I might not be on skates currently, but I really am hating having to put this down for any stretch of time. Holly Jackson has done a fantastic job, and I can’t wait for the sequel next month.
What did you recently finish reading?
Recently I read Charlotte Booth’s How to Survive in Ancient Egypt for NetGalley. It was superb as an easy to access but ultimately very informative book regarding 18th Dynasty Egypt, with facts ranging from food to hygiene, and everything else you can possibly think of. What was particularly wonderful about this book as a lover of all things Ancient Egypt is the way that the transliteration of words is written out, giving those even new to the era a taste of the language. Highly recommend!
What do you think you’ll read next?
As before, I’m waiting somewhat to see where I’m at with dates because of the upcoming Magical Readathon starting on 1st April but if I have time, I’ll aim to read – as I planned last time! – Where The Crawdads Sing, as I really want to dig into it. If I have less time for whatever reason, maybe because of crochet projects finally sneaking back into my life, I’ll read One Of Us Is Lying. I’m enjoying A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder so much, that I think I’ll need something similar in my life once I’m done.
I also currently have…. thirteen books on my NetGalley account, and three physical ARCs to review. Life is full of books all happening at once, and I am now very much on a reading schedule! Thank goodness we’re all staying inside….
I’d love to hear your recommendations for this week, and for weeks coming.
