WWW Wednesday February 1

It’s Wednesday and the start of a brand new month. January is done and so the days are getting longer which is always good as I hate it when it’s dark at 4 o clock in the afternoon.

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

Return to Cornish Bay by Philippa Ashley

I’ve got my ARC requests down to a relatively sensible amount and I only have to read one a week which seems quite manageable and leaves me time to read all the other lovely books on my shelves. This one is due for publication in a couple of weeks and is by an author that I usually enjoy. I hadn’t realised that it’s actually a rerelease of a book that was originally published in 2012 though. It’s quite a fun read so far but there are a couple of references that date it such as going to see Hunger Games at the cinema.

Tomorrow is Beautiful Chosen by Sarah Crossan

I am reading my way through this as part of my Poetry Reading Challenge this year. I have found some lovely poems as well as been reminded of a couple that I already knew and loved.

What I have recently finished reading

The Mitford Secret by Jessica Fellowes

I enjoyed this final Mitford Sisters mystery with its backdrop of WWII. There was lots of historical detail, almost too much sometimes but the lives of the different groups of people was fascinating. The mystery was interesting too and I’m sorry to say good bye to this series.

King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo
I loved this new visit to the Grishaverse. It was great to catch up with Prince Nikolai and Nina again. This was an exciting fantasy with several different threads all happening at one and multiple points of view.

This was a brilliant read and I loved the story of Jess’s struggle to open a museum for all of the extraordinary objects that have been stored in a warehouse. The relationships between her and her boyfriend and her new workmate Alex were really well written as well as her life long friendship with Luce.

The Little Venice Bookshop by Rebecca Raisin

I think this is one where I am going against popular opinion. This was an OK read but I didn’t love it as much as I hoped. The descriptions of Venice were great but the main character didn’t really appeal at all.

What I am intending to read next

A Gruesome Discovery by Cora Harrison

What are you reading this week?
