WWW Wednesday October 19

It’s Wednesday again and we’re in the middle of a gorgeous October. The weather has been full of warm sunshine which makes all the beautiful Autumn colours even more vivid. I took a drive out to Belvoir Castle yesterday and had a lovely couple of hours wandering around the grounds and through the woodland.

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 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 Marvellous Light by Freya Marske

This series, The Last Binding, was recommended by Biblio Nerd in their review of the sequel A Restless Truth. I am about half way through and really enjoying it so far. It’s set in alternative Edwardian England where magic is a secret kept by a few families. My one reservation is that the love scenes are a bit more explicit than I’m comfortable with but that’s probably my age ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

What I have recently finished reading

Fairy Tale by Stephen king

I eventually finished this at the weekend and loved it. I really enjoyed Stephen King’s writing style and the way that the story unfolds quite slowly. It was a long book and took a while to read but I didn’t feel bored at any point. I liked the way that he made all of the different links to various fairy tales, usually the darker side of them.

Taste by Stanley Tucci

This was a brilliant read and you can find my review here.

Death and Croissants by Ian Moore

This was boring!! It was probably just that I wasn’t in the right mood for it but I didn’t really enjoy the mystery which seemed far too complicated, almost like a farce, and I didn’t particularly like the characters either.

What I am intending to read next

Shrines of Gaiety by Kate Atkinso

Hopefully this won’t be as disappointing as my last read.

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

This is post 19 for #blogtober 2022

  1. You have some wonderful books here. I’m more intrigued to read Fairly Tale now. I’ve never read a Stephen King book, but I know he’s a wonderful writer. I might try this one.

  2. I’m glad you enjoyed Fairy Tale. After finishing Billy Summers I have once again found myself wanting to read Stephen King, at least his non-horror books.๐Ÿ˜Š He really is quite the story teller. I hope to get to Fairy Tale at some point, but the length is kind of holding me back right now. I just don’t have the time!

    1. A lot of people seem to be. Normally it’s me being underwhelmed by a book that everyone else seems to love. It feels a bit strange being on the other side of the fence ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
