WWW Wednesday April 20

It’s Wednesday and the sun is shining again. We have had some gorgeous weather in April so far and it’s been lovely being able to go for walks. I saw my first set of ducklings last week who were very cute.

We have finished decorating and have built our bookcases. They were surprisingly easy to construct. We can’t fill them yet though as my husband has to fix them to the walls which won’t be done until this weekend.

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

Elantris by Brandon Sanderson
I have definitely read this before but when I read a review of it a couple of weeks ago, I realised that I couldn’t remember anything about it so it was obviously time for a reread.

I am loving this account of the walks taken by the author and the different women that she has researched. The worst thing about it is that in some ways so little has changed. Recent events have shown that it still isn’t safe for women to walk on their own.

This is my fifth non fiction book in 2022 so I am definitely on track for reading more non fiction this year.

What I have recently finished reading

The Toll Gate by Georgette Heyer
I was inspired to reread this after reading this post by Margaret about the 1954 club. I love most of Georgette Heyer’s Regency romances and this one about a bored ex captain of the dragoons finding a mystery in the wilds of Derbyshire is lovely.

The Dying Day by Vaseem Khan
This was a great historical crime fiction novel set in Bombay in 1950. I love the character of Persis Wadia, India’s first female police inspector and this mystery featuring a 600 year old copy of Dante’s Inferno was excellent.

What I am intending to read next

I have seen so much about Amor Towles’ books that I decided it was time to actually read one so this is next on my TBR.

That’s the current state of my reading this week. What does your WWW Wednesday look like?

  1. As you no doubt know after reading my latest book tag responses, I’m very late to the Brandon Sanderson party! As a fantasy reader I really should take the time to read at least one…there are just so many good books, so little time.

  2. Woo Hoo, it will be so much fun to fill those shelves. I have had The Gentleman From Moscow on my TBR for a long time. I will watch for your review, Janette.

  3. I keep coming across A Gentleman in Moscow, so I will be curious to see what you think of that one. I’ve seen mixed reviews. Have a great week!
