WWW Wednesday 23rd February

It’s Wednesday again and what a week we’ve had! Three storm force weather systems crossing the country in 6 days is definitely unusual weather by anyone’s standards. Luckily, in the depths of the Midlands, we’ve been spared the worst of the weather and its effects. However, our trip to the east coast might not have been the best idea. The wind on the beach was so strong on Friday that it was hard to stand upright. It was still nice to be somewhere different though.

Wednesday means that it’s time for WWW Wednesday. This is one of my favourite memes and I love taking part in it and reading everybody else’s posts. It’s currently hosted by Sam and it can be found on her blog Taking on a world of words which can be found here.

The idea of WWW Wednesday is just to answer three questions about what you are reading, have just finished and are about to read so here goes for this week.

What I’m currently reading

I’ve only just started this which is the second in the fantasy series The Broken and The Bound. It has dragons, elves, dwarves and people. What more could I want? I really enjoyed the first book in the series and this one has started well so far.

What I have recently finished reading

Medicus by Ruth Downie is a murder mystery set in Roman Chester. I really enjoyed this book which was recommended by Sam, the host of WWW Wednesday. I will definitely be reading the rest of the series.

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee is a classic that I’ve somehow managed to miss up until now. I loved it and can’t believe that I haven’t read it until now. Atticus, Scout and Jem will stay in my memory for a long while.

The Liar’s Knot by M A Carrick is the second in The Rook and the Rose trilogy. I read the first one over New Year and loved it. There’s a lot of political intrigue and you have to pay attention to who everyone is but I love the characters of Ren and Grey and the world building is amazing.

Murder on the Menu by Fiona Leitch is the first in a cosy crime series featuring Jodie Parker, an ex police officer turned chef. I read A Cornish Christmas Murder as an ARC from Net Galley and enjoyed it so much that I went and bought the first one. The characters are interesting and there’s a lot of humour which always appeals.

What I am intending to read next

Sadly, I wasn’t approved to read the ARC of this last year so I ordered if from the library instead. I’m really looking forward to finally getting round to reading this one.

    1. The Mask of the Mirror cover is lovely too which is the first volume. They have a very Italian feel to them. Think powerful families like the Medici with magic and tarot style cards.
