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. As I’ve been on holiday including a couple of flights, I’ve had plenty of time to read.
What I’m currently reading
I Belong Here by Anita Sethi
The author’s walk along the Pennine Way was inspired by her being the victim of a hate crime when she was racially abused on a train. This led her to think about what it meant to belong to somewhere and a feeling that she wanted to get close to the natural landscape. It’s not an easy read as It is only about her walk in a small part and much more about her experiences of racism. It’s quiet meandering too with lots of different themes being explored.
Silent Parade by Keigo Higashino
A Japanese crime story featuring Detective Galileo who is actually a university professor called Manabu Yukawa. Professor Yukawa appears to be almost a cross between Sherlock Holmes and Poirot as he helps the police and points them in the right direction in their investigation. It’s a really interesting plot and I’m looking forward to seeing how it ends up.
What I have recently finished reading
An Island Wedding by Jenny Colgan
This is the fourth instalment of life on Mure and it was lovely to revisit the island and its inhabitants. Definitely a romance and not just one but two weddings. As often the case with Jenny Colgan, the ending is bittersweet and not all of the characters drift off into the sunset happily.
The Last Blade Priest by W P Wiles
I loved this Epic Fantasy about a world where the main religion involves worshipping a mountain. The last blade priest who is being trained to carry out human sacrifice to his God but hates the idea of taking a human life. The world building and characters were all brilliant.
MurderFest by Julie Wassmer
I love this series set in Whitstable where Pearl Nolan runs a restaurant as well as a detective agency. The characters and plot are always good and I really like the way the books are truly set in Whitstable. I want to go and visit and see all the different places for myself.
What I am intending to read next
This book is currently waiting for me at the library and I can’t wait to read what’s in store next for Washington Poe. .
That’s the current state of my reading this week. What does your WWW Wednesday look like?

I just read The Island Wedding, so now I need to go back and read the rest of the Mure Island series. The ending was realistic, we don’t all get our happily ever after. Enjoy your upcoming reads, Janette.
Looks like a great week of reading, Janette! I hope you enjoy them all.
I love DI Poe
I love Jenny Colgan’s books, so An Island Wedding is calling to me. Thanks for sharing. Here’s MY WWW POST
An Island Wedding sounds like a book I would definitely pick up. Happy reading!
I want to read more Jenny Colgan. I am not sure about a bittersweet ending though!
Have a great week!

I like the way her books aren’t quite as sweet and light as some other romance authors
I can understand that. Some of them can be a bit samey. It took a while for me to get into Romance. I was always more of a Thriller person – action!
