Welcome to Wednesday which 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 simple 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
Warrior by Jennifer Fallon
I’m continuing my reread of this fantasy series by the Australian author Jennifer Fallon. This is the second book of this trilogy focused on Marla Wolfblade. She is definitely a woman to have on your side. She uses her brains to survive and gain power in a society totally dominated by men. She has a lot in common with Mara of the Acoma in the Janny Wurts/Raymond Feist Empire Series. In this book, she is focused on protecting her children especially her first born Damin who is heir to the High Prince.
What I have recently finished reading
Jane Austen at Home by Lucy Worsley
Another non fiction read for 2022, I think that’s 6 so far so certainly smashing this challenge. This looks at Jane Austen’s life through the houses that she lived in. It was a really interesting book and I don’t think I quite realised before what a precarious financial position she was in for much of her life.
Wolfblade by Jennifer Fallon
Chronologically, this is the first book in the Hythrun Chronicles and focuses on Marla Wolfblade, the 16 year old sister of the High Prince is determined not to spend her life being married off and running a household. She gets help in this from a surprising source, Elezaar, the dwarf slave also wants to have some autonomy over his life and luckily he has knowledge that Marla needs. He begins to teach her the rules of Gaming and Wielding Power and Hythrun will never be the same again.
What I am intending to read next
Adult Assembly Required by Abbi Waxman
This is certainly my next read. I’ve been wanting to read this for ages but even more so when I discovered that it features some of the same characters as in The Bookish Life of Nina Hill which I absolutely loved last year.
That’s the current state of my reading this week. What does your WWW Wednesday look like?
