WWW Wednesdays: 6 April 2022

Happy humpday!

The weather is miserable and after a lovely March, the weather is as grumpy as I am. Well, I think I’m grumpy because of the rainy windy weather.

WWW Wednesdays’ home is at Sam’s blog Taking On A World of Words. Check it out!

The three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you will read next?

What am I currently reading?

My current main read is The Wolf Den by Elodie Harper. It’s a historical novel about prostitutes in Pompeii. I am enjoying it a lot.

On the side I am reading Upstream by Mary Oliver. It’s collection of essays centred around nature. I read one of Mary Oliver’s poetry collections before, but I think I am enjoying this more.

Finally, I am listening to A Caribbean Mystery by Agatha Christie on audio. It’s a Miss Marple and I have to say, it’s not my favourite. It’s nice to listen to a mystery on audio though. I much prefer Agatha Christie in this format. Plus they are nice palette cleansers after a hefty non-fiction listen.

What did I recently finish reading?

I finished God: An Anatomy on audio. It was such a fascinating listen! Really enjoyed learning about the history of the God familiar from the Bible and I enjoyed the format the author chose to tell it in.

I also finished Book Two of The Masnavi by Rumi. I just appreciate the stories and this form of poetry. I think the translator made it very readable. There is a lot of explanation of the references in the back as well.

I read Galatea, a short story by Madeline Miller. I just really enjoy everything she writes and that one was a nice little book I could read in half an hour curled up on the sofa. Short reads are underrated!

Finally, I read The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo. It was a good read, but I was surprised I did not end up loving it. Maybe my expectations were too high, or maybe Taylor Jenkins Reid’s writing is just ok for me. I am not sure.

What will I reading next?

I have only a few books on my April TBR, but I think I will go with Spring, the first book of the Hyddenworld series by William Horwood. It will be a re-read, so I can finally get to the rest of the series. It’s not a well known one at all. What I remember from my first read of the book about six or seven years ago is that it starts pretty weak and gets stronger.It’s fantasy, but kind of contemporary. I’m looking forward to diving back into it. I am a little apprehensive, but I enjoyed it in the end last time, so I hope I will this time as well.

  1. That’s a nice variety of books! I’m reading This Woman’s Work: Essays on Music, edited by Kim Gordon and Sinead Gleeson and finished Rainbows End in Ferry Lane Market by Nicola May; not sure what I’m going to start next, but something from my extensive NetGalley TBR I’d imagine!

  2. The Wolf Den sounds so good! I’m glad you are enjoying it so far. Seven Husbands is one of my favorites but I imagine the hype is high now. Maybe her writing wasn’t for you and that’s okay! 🙂
