WWW: What I’m Reading on 27 April 2022

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?

It’s King’s Day here in The Netherlands, but it’s also my mum’s birthday, so we’re going avisiting. I don’t expect to notice much of the national festivities and that’s fine by me! We went out to see some live music last night (young Irish band Inhaler) and I am feeling a little tired.

Reading has been slow this past week – almost non-existent, but it’s been a very busy week with lots of appointments and live music in the evenings. It’s been a good week though. As for the reading, I am sure I will get back into the swing of normalcy soon.

So…

What am I currently reading?

I am still reading Spring, the first book in the Hyddenworld series by William Horwood. Now, this is a re-read and the first time I gave it the equivalent of 4 out of 5 stars on Goodreads (about 5/7 stars in my own blog rating, but it was pre-blog!). The writing is really messy, as if it’s been edited badly, even if the story itself is good. I think it will end up with a lower rating. It’s not quite holding my attention either, but that may also have to do with the fact that I have so many other things to think about at the moment.

In the evening I have been reading When We Found Home by Susan Mallery. Since I am only reading this one ten minutes at a time, it’s been slow going. I am enjoying it though. This is one of the e-books on my 2022 TBR. I plan to go away for the night tomorrow with a friend – I may get a little time to read. I will take my Kindle anyway.

Finally, I have started listening to The Life of Olaudah Equiano on audio. This is a memoir of a slave originally published in the late 1700s. I think it will be a fascinating listen/read.

What did I finish reading?

I only finished my audio book, which was Horses Never Lie by Mark Rashid. I thoroughly enjoyed that one. It’s a horsemanship book and a bit of a memoir rolled into one. It was right up my horsey street.

What will I be reading next?

I am not sure yet, but one book I would like to read in May is The Hero of Ages, the final book the Mistborn trilogy by Brandon Sanderson. Whether I will start with it depends on how I finish this reading month. If my mind still feels scattered I would be better off starting with some shorter books.
