The 3 Ws…
• What are you currently reading?
• What did you recently finish reading?
• What do you think you’ll read next?
I have failed at the whole thing of making this list any shorter. I keep thinking ‘don’t pick up another book yet’ when I finish one, and then suddenly there I am, starting something else. Oh well.
So, right now I am reading physical copies of Shropshire Folktales by Amy Douglas, The Binding by Bridget Collins and Recipe For Life by Mary Berry. I am also listening to the audiobook Blessed Monsters by Emily A. Duncan which is the final book in the Something Dark and Holy trilogy.
I managed to finish five books since my last post – including Thing Explainer by Randall Munroe which is one I started back in January and took far longer to finish than it should have given that it had less than 100 pages and was mostly pictures. But I got there in the end.
I also finished Hell Bent by Leigh Bardugo which was just as good, if not even better than, Ninth House. I would like book 3 now please. (Yes. Yes, Book 2 did only just get released. Yes, I am going to have to wait quite some time.)
I finished up my audiobook of The Trials of Life by David Attenborough, which whilst lovely, also made me a little sad in places. Every now and then, that glorious, wonderful, strong voice sounded old. Which, I know he is, but I do not like being reminded of this because we don’t appear to have found the Elixir of Life to give to him and make him live forever yet.
I rediscovered and recharged my Kindle this week and celebrated by reading Edward Lear’s A Book Of Nonsense in one sitting, and then jumping into The Book Of Nature Myths by Florence Holbrook which was another quick read. A few of the stories in it were familiar to me, but they were largely Native American folk stories which I didn’t know – short tales along the lines of Aesop’s Fables and the Just So Stories.
Finally, I picked up and romped through The October Man by Ben Aaronovitch, which was another one that has sat waiting on a shelf since I got it on its release tour. (There’s a theme here…) I do so love the Rivers of London series, and it was good fun hopping over the sea for an adventure in Germany.
This little lot takes my total for the year so far to 20 books finished.
I have no idea what I will pick up next after I finish my physical or Kindle reads, but I plan to listen to Wonder Woman: Warbringer (DC Icons #1) by Leigh Bardugo as my next audiobook.
