We’ve arrived at the final Wednesday of March and our lovely mini heat wave has definitely ended as it’s very chilly today and apparently we might get snow tomorrow!!!! 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
Light Perpetual by Francis Spufford
In 1944, a German bomb hit a Woolworths store in London killing over 180 people. This novel explores what the lives of 5 of those children might have been like if they had not been there at that precise moment.
The novel moves through 5 years after, 10 years after and zooms in on each of those five children, imagining what their lives would have been like, how they would have grown and who they might have become.
I’m really enjoying this book so far.and seeing each of the different characters in different points in time.
What I have recently finished reading
I’ve had a real blitz on Net Galley books this week and my review rating is now at the very respectable 86% 😃
Collar Bound by Rebecca Zahabi
This was an interesting fantasy read about a world ruled by Mages. I liked the world building and some of the characters but felt that some of the characters were a bit flat.
The People on Platform 5 by Clare Pooley
I loved this book. It was full of great characters and I love books where random groups of people are thrown together.
Requiem in La Rossa by Tom Benjamin
An interesting murder mystery set in the university city of Bologna. It’s apparently the third in this series so I’m going to hunt out the previous books.
These will all be published in May and I’ll review them properly nearer the time.
The White City by Charles Spencer
A non fiction history book about the sinking of the White Ship in 1120. My review is here
Didn’t Finish- No one is Talking about this
I couldn’t get on with the format of this book and didn’t really get a lot of the content. Life’s too short to struggle through a book if I don’t have to 😃
What I am intending to read next
That’s the current state of my reading this week. What does your WWW Wednesday look like?
