WWW Wednesday October 5

It’s the first Wednesday of October and the leaves are changing colour daily. We don’t have the brilliant displays of North America but there are some gorgeous colours around at the moment

Wednesday also 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

A Man called Ove by Fredrik Backman

Ove has to be the grumpiest man in Sweden but I am loving the continual interruptions he gets from his neighbours and the way that his past history is gradually revealed .

What I have recently finished reading

Helgoland by Carlo Rovelli

Helgoland – The story of quantum physics

It probably isn’t really true to say that I have recently finished this. Recently abandoned would be far more accurate. I was definitely over estimating my ability to understand anything at all about Quantum Physics. I got about half way through and then it really stopped making any sense at all. My next non-fiction read is going to be a lot more accessible

Snowed in for Christmas by Sarah Morgan

I loved this year’s Christmas book by Sarah Morgan. It definitely left me with a burning desire to make shortbread. I may well reread it in the week before Christmas to put me in a festive mood. I’ll post my review in the last week of October when the book is published in the UK

The Malice of Waves by Mark Douglas Home

This was a brilliant mystery about a young boy’s death five years earlier. The ‘sea detective’ Cal McGill, is called in to see if he can use his specialised knowledge to work out what happened. This was a really intriguing storyline with some really interesting characters. There was also a sub plot about thieving rare birds eggs too to make things even more interesting.

Murder at the Auction by E C Bateman


I was invited to read this first book in a new crime series. That doesn’t happen very often so obviously I said yes. It was a really enjoyable murder mystery set in the historic town of Stamford which is only about an hour away from where I live. I love books that are set in places that I have visited and this one had a really strong sense of location.

What I am intending to read next

The Truants by Kate Weinberg

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

  1. Good for you to try Hegoland. I disliked physics a lot in school, so would not have even tried. The Malice of Waves sounds quite intriguing, Janette. I hope you enjoy your upcoming reads.
